40+ Best Advertising Slogans of Modern Brands

By  |  32 Comments
 

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.

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 fulfil? I’m pretty sure you get the idea.

Check our list of the best advertising slogans, and leave a comment below of which ones you like the most.

    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.

      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!

        • http://advergize.com/ 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.
