How a Meaningful Slogan or Tagline Can Advance Your Brand Positioning
A strong brandl identity takes your company, product, or service name further and makes it more powerful. If you're Rever Corporation, maker of a notebook computer with a built-in projector, prospects may think it's just another laptop PC. They don't know what makes it different and better.
When you position the notebook with the advertising slogan, "The first notebook computer with an 8-foot screen," you've instantly created differentiation and immediately added greater perceived value. Your sales prospect thinks: "What are they talking about?," and wants to learn more. Now the value of this brand's appeal has been taken to a higher level, thanks to meaningful positioning.
If you'd like to create a new or improved brand name or company, product or service slogan or tag line, call or e-mail. Chuck Ingersoll. 585.746.2320.
5 Tips To Help You Create A Great Advertising Slogan
1) Avoid self-aggrandizement
Instead of saying "Nobody makes a better fran-o-stat than Acme," consider what's in it for the prospect/customer. "Get there faster," my strapline for Royalty Free Roads' web site, provides a benefit for the person searching for stock photos of highways and locations. You're all about (or should be all about) offering advantages to the customer, and your advertising slogan should communicate this.
2) Remember that emotion trumps rationality
Rationale appeal: "The most accurate gun sights in the world." Emotional appeal: "Choose Wisely, Live Longer," a product slogan I created for LaserMax gun sights. The emotional appeal is significantly more powerful and memorable.
3) Don't be afraid of an extra word or three
Today, as noted branding expert Al Ries notes, many companies use short positionings, such as Fidelity Investments "Turn Here." What does this corporate endline really convey? And couldn't almost anyone use this wording? It's hardly unique to Fidelity. Then consider "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." It's far more emotive and "sticky." Don't be afraid to add a few more words, it may make your clever slogan more meaningful, targeted and resonant.
4) Achieve resonant congruent differentiation
Speaking of resonant, strive to ensure that your ad slogan meets these three key criteria: 1) Resonant, meaning that it is aligned with your essential brand messaging, so that a prospect says, "Yeah, that's important to me." 2) Congruent, consistent with the qualities and values personified by your brand. 3) Differentiated, stating why you aren't like everyone else, but how you are different and better.
5) Extend your brand essence
Consider whether your proposed tagline enhances and amplifies your Unique Selling Proposition (USP): your number #1 selling point and differentiator.
Can one creative slogan or clever tagline do it all? It would be very difficult. But keying on at least one of these critical aspects of brand positioning and strategy will help you hone your messaging to create a more effective brand strategy.
