This is an important question. There are two main reasons why it is important for Cassius to get Brutus to join the conspiracy.
First, if Cassius can get Brutus to join the conspiracy, then it would be much better for public relations. In other words, the people respect Brutus and trust him. Therefore, if Brutus is marked with the conspirators, the people will believe that Caesar was aiming at kingship and that the assassination was necessary.
Second, Brutus has a veritable heritage as his great ancestor of the same name was part of a conspiracy to rid Rome of its first kings. This family connection would bring greater legitimacy to the cause of the conspirators.
simply because the commons consider Brutus as a very honourable man accordingly they do love and respect him so when brutus say that Caesar was a proud man and that he deserved his death they'll believe him. Brutus for cassuis is like the rich alchemy that turns every cheap and mean thing into gold
