Advertising Slogans

Slogans are, I think, is what makes a Brand more memorable and stays on the consumers mind for quite a while. But creating a slogan is not for the sake of just creating an advertising slogan. It have to be simple and memorable. Relevant to the target and unique to the brand. It should also be a consumer language. It is also said by advertising experts and even theorize that slogans are more important than visual executions because what we hear is what we remember most based on psychological studies. Visual executions change to provide freshness to a campaign, but great taglines endure.

I have used one myself. On this blog you will see the slogan “Work Smarter, Not Harder” although this slogan have been used many times but it seem that no popular brand name have ever used it. Another blog I saw is from Matt Mullenweg with a slogan “Unlucky in Cards”. The slogan sounds mysterious but when I watched a video from Wordcamp Philippines, someone asked why is it so. Matt said, in the U.S., there was a saying “Lucky in Cards, Unlucky in Love” so maybe he made a unique slogan for it. Making it vice-versa.
