Honest Company Slogans
A company slogan is designed to give a customer a reason to buy a product. As millions are spent, companies carefully choose how to market their product to the correct demographic. We remember these slogans and they affect how we view a company.
But imagine if companies were honest with us. Sure sales would more than likely plummet, but it would be refreshing to hear them say what we all (or most of us) think. Here are a few examples:
Facebook – Because everyone needs to know when you poop!
Verizon – Treating first-time customers the best!
Twitter – Quick, type something you'll regret!
Pepsi – When they don’t have Coke, choose Pepsi!
Home Depot - You have no idea what you're doing!
BP – Our Bad.
McDonald’s – We have salads, but that's not why you're here!
WalMart – You really don’t have a choice anymore…
BestBuy – Our Know it all employees are sure to make you feel foolish!
MTv - Music Free!
Snuggie - It's not like you have a date tonight.
Red Bull - Because cocaine is illegal!
Google – When you need to look up how to buy chloroform.
Visa – Because you would not buy this stuff with cash.
FedEx – Are you really going to trust the post office?
Apple – If we made this in America just imagine how much it would cost!
Viagra – It happens to almost everybody..
Marlboro - You don't care and neither do we.
Tylenol - No recalls since 2010!
Gatorade – 23 grams of sugar will help you win!
Charmin – Better than corn cobs.
Nike – Because $149 shoes are totally reasonable.
Bing – Like Google, but worse.
Aol – Welcome....Hello?
Hubpages – Because no one visits your blog.
Squidoo - Like Hubpages, but way more confusing!
Chevorlet – Building punch lines. One Volt at a time.
MySpace - Is anybody out there?
Netflix - Great for obscure documentaries!
Aquafina – Better than Tap!
Comcast - Please Hold.
Funyuns - Great with Mountain Dew and weed!
Fox News - One sided news you can trust.
MSNBC - Somebody's watching right?
Under Armour – If you don’t work out this will not look good on you.
Natural Light – When you're having more than six.
These slogans would in all likelyhood bring sales to a grinding halt and do serious harm to our fragile economy, so we should probably stick to I'm loving it and just do it. We know the truth but don't want to hear it, and a great slogan will resonate with the targeted customer and increase sales. But if for some reason or another companies decide to take the honest approach I'm ready, willing, inexpensive, and available!
