Famous Company Slogans That Stuck

Before creating a slogan of your own, it may help to study those of the world's top brands. These companies have coined such iconic slogans that customers always think of them when the taglines are seen or heard.

"Just Do It"

Created by Nike, this short phrase encourages action. You don't have to be a super athlete to run, hike, cycle, etc. Nike products are for everyone. If there's something you've been wanting to do, the company’s slogan tells the everyday man and woman to "Just Do It."

Their makeup is designed to not only make women beautiful but also invoke a sense of worthiness. They want all women to know they deserve the feelings that makeup elicits within them.

"I'm Lovin' It"

McDonald's launched their new slogan in 2003, and it still stands strong with consumers today. Their tagline has a basic message: You'll love their product. While it doesn't claim to be the healthiest choice on the market, it does promise that you'll enjoy their food, convenience, and everything else the brand offers.

How to Create Your Company's Tagline

Coming up with your company's slogan doesn't have to be difficult. If you want a tagline that will capture your audience’s attention, keep the following tips in mind:

Keep It Succinct

It’s no wonder why today’s top brands have taglines everyone can remember. They are short, catchy, and easy to say. Follow the same example for your tagline and you’re sure to have one your audience will remember. It’s best to use 11 or fewer words to make them easy to remember. Practice saying the tagline aloud to ensure it flows easily off your tongue.

Be Consistent With Your Brand

Your slogan shouldn’t have customers guessing what it is that you actually do. It might help to include a word or two that describes the industry you’re in. For example, if you’re an accountant, it could help to add “accounting” to your tagline. Be as clear as you can.

It also helps to draw from the non-visual aspects of your brand such as mission statement and core values to convey exactly how you want your customers to perceive your brand.

Ensure Your Slogan is Unique

Don’t forget to do an internet search of the tagline you’re considering to ensure it will be unique to your brand. After all, you want potential customers to associate that tagline with just your company.  

Your slogan is something that will always be associated with your brand, so it’s important to consider it carefully. The above tips will give you a great start in creating a memorable tagline.
