BharatBenz: Top Five Social Media Posts
Published On Nov 05, 2016
What you post on social media can make or break your business and BharatBenz, one of India's most popular commercial vehicle brands, has laid special emphasis on its social media handles since its inception. Owing to its German roots, the company has not at all taken social media lightly and its current presence in one of History TV's most prestigious shows 'Ice Road Truckers' is a sheer proof of that.
The graph below demonstrates the number of posts and amount of reactions that BharatBenz has garnered from September 2015 to September 2016.
BharatBenz also shares photographs of its trucks sent by people who drive them in India. And mind you, this strategy is so good in numbers that BharatBenz gets thousands of reactions per post on Facebook and such massive amount of reactions on a commercial vehicle’s Facebook handle is frankly astonishing. Here are the top performing posts by BharatBenz on Facebook.

Event or Post - Ice Road Truckers-India's Deadliest Roads
Reactions - 19.408k
BharatBenz sure knows to shake things up. Most people in the industry would call sponsoring a show as big as Ice Road truckers a risk for a new company in India. But you achieve nothing if you don't take risks and BharatBenz knew exactly what it was doing while signing up for the show.
Not only would the show educate people about BharatBenz, but would also help the company develop a soft corner in the hearts of people. The show will also generate tremendous amount of respect for the brand as it will showcase how difficult truck driving can get.

There's nothing like showcasing what a truck can do. 50 BharatBenz trucks covered 4 lakh kilometers in 3.5 years. Each of the trucks were driven 450 Kms every single day and the CV brand used the event to underline the superb abilities its products offer.
