The 10 Best Advertising Taglines

Think about the brands you are familiar or love. They are probably not just a brand name you’re recalling, but a tagline too. Almost every brand has their own form of tagline. Some are timeless while others gets replaced as years pass.

So…What Exactly Is a Tagline?

Taglines (also called straplines, tags, slogans, or brand lines) can be inspirational, like a product philosophy, or they can be something fun and memorable. While some can impel you to be better, do more, or go further, others are simply a fun play on words. The generally accepted description of a tagline is:

A variant of a branding slogan, a tagline can be used in marketing materials and advertising. The idea behind the concept is to create a memorable dramatic phrase that will sum up the tone and premise of an audio/visual product, or to reinforce and strengthen the audience’s memory of a literary product.

Here are some of the taglines we’ve selected.
