While preparing a presentation today, I created a concise definition of the brand platform, and it occurred to me that I have never defined it as distinctly on this blog.
So here’s the most succinct definition I’m capable of authoring”
The Branding Platform is a strategic document that describes the foundation of the brand and focuses branding activities. It encompasses internal, competitive, stakeholder and touchpoint considerations at the strategic level.
The Branding Platform provides direction for management decision-making concerning brand-related issues and activities, and provides a framework for the creation of branding elements. It also defines the position management wishes the brand to occupy in the minds of marketplace members.
So, there you are.
I’d like to know if you found it accurate, eye-opening, vague or undisciplined. Please comment below.
