40+ Best Advertising Slogans of Modern Brands

By  | 

We live in an age of advertising where all brands, whether big or small, use a slogan to stand out. An advertising slogan is like a brand belief that highlights the core essence of the brand.

There are so many company slogans out there, but the best advertising slogans are the ones that truly bring out the very reason a brand exists for.

50+ Catchy Campaign Slogans of US Presidential Candidates

We’ve compiled a list of some of the best advertising slogans of modern brands and have ensured that this list is comprehensive enough taking into account a variety of company slogans, but if you think we’ve missed an important one that you consider best, leave your choice in the comments section below and we’ll review it for inclusion in this list.

So how are best advertising slogans determined? What makes an advertising slogan average, good, or the best?

We’ll take you through a detailed guideline on what makes an advertising slogan ‘the best,’ in one of planned posts in the near future. But as a top line for now, best advertising slogans are the ones that truly describe what a brand,or a company, stands for in the shortest catch phrase possible; something that sticks to the consumers mind and helps the product to stand out.

As I mentioned earlier, it should highlight what a brand exists for! It should convey what is it that this brand is in the market to do? Of course every brand is there to make money, but from a consumers point of view does an advertisement slogan say enough? Does it really tell the consumer what need / desire is this brand going to fulfill?

What is Brand Salience?

I’m pretty sure you get the idea.

    What makes them good? Well, I missed my calling because I could really advise so many companies that drop the ball on advertising in the 21st century, but until they pay me I’ll keep my secrets to myself. ;)

    I will say that after years and years of hearing and seeing “Can you hear me now?” I still could never tell you what phone company it was for. I think most ad companies go by the Emperor’s new clothes analogy, they convince the company that their advertisement is the finest in the land, but they’re throwing their gold at a bunch of nothing.

    • Sarosh Waiz

      Thanks for commenting @InvisibleZombie:disqus . You are right in terms of the companies dropping the ball on advertising and bombarding consumers with thousands of advertisements. However, brand relevance is a key factor in that as well.

      Nonetheless, the focus of this post was to discuss the importance of advertising slogans to brands and not advertising methodology :).

      Personally, I am an advocate of smart advertising that delivers results. And I would love to hear from you about your secrets ;).

      • InvisibleZombie

        Yes I do agree with the essence of the story that these are all examples of good slogans. I guess my mind always thinks along the lines of “effective” slogans as in you’ll remember both the slogan and the product in conjunction with each other.

        One of my “secrets” is that i don’t have a dvr so I’m “forced” to watch commercials, making me be a bit more analytical on how well they work, or not. Plus I watched a lot of “Bewitched” as a kid!

        • Sarosh Waiz

          Effective ad slogans are becoming more and more important with time due to increasing clutter and competition in advertising.

          Haha. I’m sure watching Bewitched added to your analytical side :). Honestly, I think watching commercials and analysing them is a good way of learning. Always helps.

          And once again, I second that, because working at ad agencies and analysing competitor advertisements over the years helped me a lot too.

          Pleasure to have you as a contributing reader.

          • InvisibleZombie

            I’d be glad to e-mail you some of my thoughts and ideas. probably best to get them off my chest anyway! (No “rants” I promise.)

          • Sarosh Waiz

            Would be glad to hear from you :).

    From coca-cola I prefer Open Happiness, great campains were made with this slogan, very contemporary.

    • Sarosh Waiz

      Thanks Andre! As a campaign slogan “Open Happiness” is brilliant. Will definitely add this to the list soon!

      • Erika Whitmore

        If anyone wants me to take a crack at any – I was in tv advertising and i have always been obsessed with making up slogans – even when I was a little kid I would cajole my little friends into “playing commercials” with me…right now as a matter of fact I was making an entire campaign up in my head for the country of Sweden (my nationality) – just for fun…it’s a pretty elaborate on-going evergreen that has both print and broadcast potential…outdoor, as well. Anyway…I guess I am really a dork…who loves advertising…eats, breathes and sleeps it, yet is out of work and has been for AGES…sigh…back to the creative board..whee!

  • zaraay

    COKE’S old slogan:”You cant beat the real thing!!!”

    • ben lightner

      Or simply: Coke – enjoy.

      After looking at all of Coke’s slogans through the years, most of them are flat out terrible. “Open Happiness” and “Enjoy.” are my two favorite because of their crisp simplicity. The essence of the slogan embodies the product…it’s brilliant.

  • rogerthat!!

    Hey Sarosh, Great list but i think you missed out on Apple or was it not that appealing to you?
    Would it be possible for you to email me your understanding on some of these taglines in terms of the audience it targets and the creativity involved?

    You should consider a classic (in my opinion)business slogan from UPS… Moving at the speed of business.

  • David González

    I’m missing “Think different” . It was an amazing response to Think and it pushed forward the brand itself

  • philip onyeador

    Thank you.


  • G Man

    You missed my favourite: L’Oreal’s “Because you’re worth it.” Not only does it make the listener think “damn right I am” and go out and buy the product, it gives them a reason to pay a high price!

  • Really Mad Man

    Hey, Invisible Zombie! I think you’re full of BS. I work in advertising
    and I find in really annoying when people who aren’t in the industry
    start offering their second rate opinions. The magic of advertising is
    that it makes everything look really simple, when in reality, it’s a
    head screw.

    If you really think you’ve missed your calling, then
    pick up a pen and a pad, head to the nearest big agency and ask then for
    a job trial. Then after a week of having your head constantly fried,
    You can disappear back under the rock from where you came.

  • AMinus

    One that was overlooked, but I personally think is one of the best, is Red Lobster’s “Seafood Differently”. Catchy.
