Regional B2B Leaderboard

Top Brands in Latin America - Brazil

Leveraging LinkedIn’s B2B Index, The B2B Leaderboard identifies a distinct cohort of B2B companies worldwide that excel at brand building. By examining factors such as creativity, distribution and investment, we generate a composite score for every organization in the B2B Index. This allows us to build a comprehensive and comparable assessment of effective B2B brand building for companies within the same industry. Not just one, but four regional lists (APACEMEALATAM-BrazilNAMER) complement a singular global index, underscoring these brands’ diverse and widespread influence.

LinkedIn calculates the B2B Index by looking at three dimensions that signal strong performance on the platform:

  • Brand Investment
    (Examples: Paid Spending, Posting by Company Executives)

  • Brand Creative Quality & Investment Effectiveness
    (Examples: Dwell Time, Customer Outcomes)

  • Brand Advocacy & Visibility
    (Examples: Qualified Applications, Non-Employee Mentions)
