Having a cover picture that could reflect your business but why not using it as way to express your creativity too or something you are attached too?

By doing it you will give your connections more confidence and create a link with him/her.
Or by commenting it: someone is publishing an article or infographics. If you are familiar with this topic an think you can enrich this content by giving your own insights, do it. People generally appreciate it, can even thank you for that which is finally a recommendation that really matters and allow to be noticed by people who are not yet in your network.
But being visible on LinkedIn is not only a matter of being active on LinkedIn.
