Commenting on the rankings, Ashutosh Gupta, Director, Marketing Solutions, LinkedIn India said, “Content along with the right context is the essential way to engage, educate and inspire an evolved consumer base. With consumers becoming more discerning about the quality of content and lives getting busier, content must be educational, yet original. In India, technology brands seem to be getting this right by focussing on subjects that people are eager to hear about.”
