This is about popular and unforgettable advertising slogans that continue to generate revenues for companies that created and owned them.  Marketing practitioners are continuously searching for ways and means to effectively communicate with consumers for the purpose of influencing them to buy certain products or services. Recent surveys and research on consumer preferences and buying patterns revealed that advertising slogans play a vital role in influencing consumer buying habits.

Here are some unforgettable advertising slogans, logos, commercials, and jingles that are known to have influenced consumer buying preferences (used to brand these organizations).  NOTE: many of the videos in even the websites of these huge corporations do not load quickly, play well with decent sound synchronized to visuals, or show without sputter on a slower DSL connection.  DesignAVS can help most of these companies tune to improve online.  It is fun to see what “state of the art” is in corporate America today first-hand below.  We can still go to school on some of these who do some things in some areas well:

Advertising slogans undergo periodic change depending on consumer recall of a certain slogan. Some companies change their advertising slogans every year - Then others try to maintain them especially if they lead in product recall among consumers. Many slogans here have been maintained by the companies who own them; because of continued popularity and the slogan’s ability to generate more revenues.  Some of the slogans are more popular in other parts of the world than here in The United States of America.

Advertising experts believe that slogans are even better than in person visual product presentations because consumers remember them easily as they become popular as a result of constant media exposure.  Some of the earliest ways to pass information was by word of mouth before written words.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  Video comes at 30 frames per second.  And can also have full Dolby stereo sound.  With the development of technology commercials and jingles replaced “traveling sales people” and “door-to-door” sales in most cases.

In the long run, slogan usage becomes less expensive in terms of advertising expenditures and it is a very effective way to influence and motivate the consumer to purchase a particular product.  Advertising can often bring in way more than is spent is why it is done

We hope you had fun remembering the popular and unforgettable advertising slogans with jungles used in commercials and branding shared here.
