The importance of defining your brand platform

Habefast Blog Article Importance Of Defining Your Brand Platform

A brand platform is a management tool, which is formalized by a document written internally. It presents the identity of a company and its brand and highlights its vision, its values or its visual visual identity. It is truly the DNA of the company.

An internal marketing and management tool

The brand platform is a document that gives an idea of your marketing strategy. Indeed, it allows you to see the company’s strategy, its positioning, its benefits and above all its competitive advantage. Building your brand platform consists of thinking about: your vision, your mission, your ambitions and your values. These four questions will form the basis of your brand platform. For example, if you want to launch a new product, the brand platform will form the basis of the objectives to be achieved to attract the consumer and that he sees the harmony between your products and your company. 

Internally, the brand platform will be useful as a reminder of the company’s guidelines and philosophy. Whether it concerns employees or newcomers, they will quickly understand the foundations of your company thanks to this synthetic document. Beyond the integration of employees, it also serves to federate decisions and actions that can impact the brand.
