L&T tops charts on professional network LinkedIn
Larsen & Toubro, India’s leading EPC Projects, Manufacturing, Defence and Services conglomerate, has topped the LinkedIn in terms of most followed Indian conglomerate, with its over 20 lakh followers.
Yuvraj Mehta, head corporate brand Management and communications, L&T said, “We have grown this follower base through consistent and targeted messaging. The content strategy for a B2B conglomerate like L&T needs to be highly focused and different from a typical FMCG or a consumer products brand play book. We focussed on our strengths and leadership in our areas of business, while still maintaining approachability and creating engaging stories which impact people.”
“We have realised that updates on big projects and achievements, and messages from our leadership consistently garner great response and engagement from the followers. Another message that resonates well with our audience is about Make in India achievement - a pride in building the things that help build the Nation, whether in infrastructure or technology and defence,” Mehta added.
LinkedIn (90%) is the top social media platform preferred by B2B marketers in 2019 followed by Facebook (77%) and Twitter (63%), data by Digital Marketing Community showed.
