In other words, Branding is the idea with which an audience sees or associates you when they think of your brand, based on the brand identity and the marketing projection that they wanted to give.
When we see the Coca Cola brand, we not only think about the product, but about the image and idea that the brand represents and has generated during its commercial history, projecting a lifestyle aimed at a specific audience with a product that is exciting and it will make you feel better.

If you can adapt and project this in all your Branding, you will create true connections and loyal audiences willing to spend even high costs on your products just for that bond and common vision.
