The use of social media in marketing of LEGO
The social media marketing strategies of LEGO are very effective. The company has maintained its continuous presence on all the prominent social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube etc. and have millions of followers on all these widely used platforms. As noted by BRIC-RC (2019), the company connects itself with more than 50 million users online. And as an integral part of its social media marketing campaign, LEGO posts content based on the feelings and needs of its diverse customers from all over the world. Even it has created several pages for its toys on the same platform such as Twitter and Facebook to target the specific audience and efficiently engage them. The timings of the posts are also calculated to generate the maximum audience response (BRIC-RC, 2019). Moreover, LEGO has also provided a platform to its fans to create their ideas and post them for the feedback from LEGO community through the LEGO ideas channel. This enables the company to have millions of designs from all over the world without any cost which also helps it in marketing its products. As a whole, as mentioned by Howarth (2018), the company is utilizing new approaches to content creation on social media which have been very successful.
