A tagline starts with the values and truths that make your business what it is, it makes your business’ benefits clear to the target audience. Descriptive, inspirational or humorous, the best taglines are both a mission and an outcome.
Keeping your company’s values and overall mission in mind, list all your business features and describe every single benefit in great detail. Write down any random words that comes to mind, let Thesaurus help you if you get a bit stuck, the more words, the better. What do people say about your business, product or service? List everything, being it positive or negative.
Just as a weight loss program will always focus on selling the future results you’ll experience, your tagline needs to communicate clear benefits. You want to sell a good night sleep, not the mattress. But don’t leave out the negative words just yet, they might trigger something humorous.
When you have exhausted the word search the real fun begins. This is where you create short phrases from all the random words you've come up with. Try not to be too clever. The best taglines use very simple words combined in a way that makes you remember them. And although it is ideal to keep it as as short as possible, some of the examples below have more than ten words and they work wonders just the same.
