If you are in IT, the hashtag #IT or #tech will do just fine. Also, consider how you add hashtags, these can be added at the end of the post, in a comment or worked into the actual post, like GoPro does.

And your request for the recommendation must be personalised (never use the ready-to-use template that LinkedIn offers). Outline some questions that will help guide them to write a testimonial that can help future clients to make a decision i.e. what were the results before and after your service/product? What was their experience working with you? How did they find the communication/process/turnaround time?
