A slogan is a memorable and catchy phrase which captures the overarching theme of a marketing campaign. 

Now the last two words in that definition, marketing campaign, are critical.

So how does a slogan differ from a tagline?

Well, while the slogan is a tool for marketing campaign memorability, the tagline is a tool for brand memorability.

1 They’re Concise

Though there are some rare examples of successful extended slogans, for the most part, effective slogans are concise spanning only a few words. 

The longer the slogan, the more difficult it is to remember and the more likely it will be remembered incorrectly or not at all. 

2 They’re Catchy

Some of the most memorable slogans in the world are remembered because they’re catchy. 

How catchy a slogan is relies on the phonetics of the phrase and how the words work together to produce a pleasing sound.

The more pleasing the sound and the easier it is to say, the more likely it will be repeated and more importantly remembered.

3. They’re Meaningful

A slogan can’t just be a handful of short and catchy words that mean nothing.

The job of the slogan is to be remembered but it needs to be remembered for something.  

An equally important aspect of the job of the slogan is to embed meaning into the mind of the audience. 

The result of this is when they do recall and they do remember, they can align a meaning to the memory helping to shape their perceptions.

How To Create A Memorable Slogan

So now you have a healthy list of slogans for your inspiration, let’s take a look at the agency process for creating a memorable and effective slogan for your own brand or your client’s. 

Want Actionable Brand Strategy Tips & Techniques?


Step 1: Uncover Your Target Market

Before you write a slogan, you need to define exactly who it’s for.

Maybe you want to appeal to your entire market or maybe you want to run a differentiated marketing campaign to speak directly to a specific market segment.

Knowing exactly who you want to appeal to is a critical step to uncovering how to appeal to them 

Step 2: Define Your Position

Who you’re targeting sets the tone for how you want that group of people to see your brand, your products, your services, your advantages, your difference, your experience or all the above. 

Embedding your position in the mind of your audience is a long-term play though a slogan that drives that position home is a valuable one. 

Step 3: Isolate Your Difference

The hallmark of an effective slogan is one that deposits a uniqueness wrapped in a concise and memorable phrase that’s easy on the ear.

The short and catchy nature of the slogan is the trojan horse though the uniqueness wrapped inside is where the real influence lies.

When you’re clear on your difference, you can add weight to your slogan. 

Step 4: Create A Word Map

Armed with your audience, their desires, your position and unique difference, you have the seeds for an effective slogan though don’t expect something iconic to jump off the page… This takes work.

Use a mind map of word associations to find synonyms and associated words to expand your wordsmithing options. 

There are no bad ideas here. This is a numbers game. 

The more words you have to work with to craft a slogan, the more likely you are to create an iconic one.  

Step 5: Distil Your Findings

You word map is all about expanding your linguistic possibilities to give you flexibility in your slogan development.

If that step is about quantity, this step is about quality.

Although there are no bad ideas when creating your word map, that doesn’t mean all should make the cut and that’s where quality control comes in.

Remove the words that aren’t fit for purpose so you’re left with highly relevant words to work with. 

Step 6: Make It Meaningful

As you’re sifting through the quality words that have made the cut, you want to prioritise the weight of the words.

To put it another way, the first words for selection need to represent the message you want your audience to remember. 

Is your product or service faster, better, more convenience a better experience, what’s the end result, the benefit to them and the difference to the rest?

Be highly selective with your choice to increase impact. 

Step 7: Make It Concise

Although there are some examples of slogans that are both long and memorable, they’re few and far between.

As a rule of thumb, beyond five words, every additional word reduces the chance that your slogan will be remembered. 

So as you sit down to write your slogan, think of your words as currency. You have five words to spend. Beyond five and you’re in debt.

Step 8: Make It Catchy

The first job of the slogan is to be remembered. If it’s too hard to remember then it doesn’t matter how much meaning or value is wrapped up inside, it will be quickly forgotten.

Only if it’s catchy and easy to remember does the weight of the difference and value have a chance to embed itself.

So use phonetically appealing words that dovetail with and compliment each others so it rolls off the tongue with minimal effort and maximum effect.  

Over To You

Within a strategic brand, there are many tools used to grab the attention of the audience, deposit a meaning in their mind to ultimately influence first, their perceptions and then their decisions.  
The slogan is one of the most effective ways to leave a lasting impression with your audience as to why they should remember your brand, your product, your service or your experience.  
Take the time to define exactly what you want them to remember, then design a concise and catchy selection of words as your tool of delivery.
