Branding is essentially the foundation of any and all communication.

It is said that in order to have a successful and happy relationship, marriage etc. with your partner, one should first figure out who they are and understand themselves before going out into the world to attract a mate.

A company, product or service must understand itself and establish a clear foundation of who they are and what they are offering in order to attract their target market and maintain successful relationships with their customers throughout the marketplace.
If you have a good understanding of who you are and can communicate it effectively then your audience should understand you as you understand you and a natural connection should be made.
