Whether you’re a CEO building a business, a marketing manager building a brand, or an ad agency pitching new business, today more than ever, the tagline has now become the critical communication factor. Memorable, iconic, taglines are subliminally embedded into consumers minds. It’s what they remember all the way to the check-out line. It’s a fact, winning taglines win business.
The consumer’s attention span is fading fast.
The tagline has become the new communications and messaging paradigm. With the advent of the torrential technological & media blitz on the consumer and the fact that consumers don’t register long brand messages any more. With hand-held devices ruling, 30 second TV spots will become 10 second spots, 5 second spots and eventually undistinguished bleeps.
The world as we know it has changed drastically and the consumer’s mind is permanently distracted. People are thinking about other things and are not emotionally involved with the advertising message anymore. Their attention span is almost non-existent. Look around you, they text as if they are in a trance. Totally captivated by their mobile device.
Winning taglines build brands and win new business.
But don’t despair. We still have marketing’s secret weapon, the stealth, iconic tagline. It represents enormous potential for a new communications and digital marketing revolution. Historically, the tagline has cut through the malaise before and can do it again. Winning taglines help corporations build brands and agencies win new business pitches.
Effective, winning taglines are the anchor of any marketing or advertising campaign. They pull the strategic positioning of a brand together under one short, catchy, memorable umbrella message. Just 4-6 critical words that articulate the big idea. With consumers on media overload, the only thing to get through these days, is a quick, thought-provoking memorable tagline.
Every brand deserves a killer tagline.
A winning tagline is the powerful antidote and marketing solution to the flat, uninviting, low-awareness scores for advertising and digital messages being produced today. The “naked logo” standing alone out there, without a tagline to call it’s own, deserves a memorable tagline that the consumer can grab onto and never forget. It’s never too late to consider adding a memorable tagline to a brand, even a leading brand. But not just any tagline, it must be an iconic tagline that embellishes a brand and makes it even stronger in the marketplace.
