LinkedIn API: A Simple Link To Follow Your Company

I'm working on a project where I need to create a link that, when clicked, takes the user to the LinkedIn profile and also automatically follows the company. I'm guessing the LinkedIn API is the way to go for this, but I'm a bit stuck; I followed the steps to create a new application and successfully created a login button based on the documentation, but I'm a little confused on how to create just one link that I could wrap around the image. Is this ultimately what the examples in the docs create? Thanks to
