What is a brand portal and why do I need one?

Brand Portal is your digital resource center where you can keep all your digital assets in an organized manner for easy access and sharing with other users.

To quickly design, manage, and timely delivery of the digital content across platforms, marketers have to work collaboratively with other departments, partners, internal business users, and freelancers. Brand portals give them the flexibility of efficient and secure sharing of the approved content. Types of users that can be created on a brand portal are the guest users, viewers, editors, and administrators with their respective rights.

The content on the portal could be logos, product photos, and other digital assets. When marketers design multiple digital assets for all types of customers, it becomes imperative to keep the assets segmented for easy access.

Brand Portals help the marketers maintain brand consistency for the long run by delivering the right content to the right audience at the right time.
