According to Eric Swartz, a.k.a. "The Tagline Guru," tagline development is the haiku of branding -- a way of compressing your vision, position, or promise into a persuasive message that resonates with others. In this course, Swartz deconstructs the proverbial tagline, revealing the source of its appeal and effectiveness as well as the strategic considerations involved in creating one that can enhance the value, relevance, and reach of your brand -- helping you elevate your message from the mundane to the memorable.
In this course, you'll learn:
- Tried and true tagline strategies that really work
- The building blocks of great taglines
- How to turn your tagline into an ambassador for your brand
- How to be more creative in your sloganeering
- Gambits that make your taglines more artful and expressive
