Swiggy imagines what professional food profiles would look like
Audience gets a picture of what our favourite food items would look like if they were on LinkedIn. Here’s a closer look at Swiggy’s marketing activity.
Loves to talk about Samosa, Chole and Chai. We are not talking about ourselves, we are referring to Swiggy’s new post. Swiggy’s marketing post brings our favourite foods to the professional sphere. In an Instagram post, the food platform shared a few LinkedIn profiles that ‘they came across’.
And thus the audience was introduced to the superior foods of Swiggy. It introduced professional Biryani first, which started its career as Chawal and was later promoted to the mouth-watering delicacy Biryani. Swiggy later personified Chole Bhature, which is the Chief Sleep Officer and will undoubtedly finish its job.
Then came India’s favourite Gol Gappe, which won the most Versatile Snack of the Year. Momos were introduced as the home to all ‘momo sapiens’ and Paneer is the CEO of vegetarian options. Dessert king Gajar ka Halwa shares interests in winters and weddings. Last but not the least, our favourite Samosa, which happens to be a mutual connection with yours truly, Social Samosa.

Swiggy has time and again made food the main ingredient for our thoughts and has succeeded. The food delivery app creates brand awareness through user-generated content that millennials and GenZ connect with. Any trendy topic of discussion and it’s one of the first brands to showcase its marketing A-game. Swiggy’s marketing strategy is a lesson other marketers can learn from.
If Monday was a reel
Monday blues can spoil the mood. Even more so when you ruin the food. That’s precisely what Swiggy captured with a recent reel. To showcase what Monday feels like, it created a reel where every food item you are looking forward to eating gets spoiled. Talk about having a bad day.

The uncrackable competitive exams
Taking a page from the student life, Swiggy tweeted a picture of eggs that just can’t be cracked. It’s a predicament most students find themselves in when giving competitive exams.

One of the best ways the brand engages with its audience is by making it interactive. Recently, it asked its audience to Tweet their November dump, except make it a food dump. What followed was pictures of mouth-watering food on Twitter.
