Don't do anything stupid like "We'll look in your box and remove your shorts," "We do it until it hertz!" or "More power to you!"

I'd say most "slogans" are actually pretty cringe inducing.

I have "Experience Quality Integrity" on my stuff but that's it. It's printed in disapearing ink that fades after the warranty period expires.

I think most people are full of **** till it's coming out their eye balls so I wouldn't even put a slogan on there.

Well my answering machine does have this as part of the recording. "This is the Alwon Electric Company, Let us Remove Your Shorts". People love it and have had customer call up just so their friends can hear the recording.

I did have one new client who almost hung up because of the message. He asked if I was concerned about people hanging up. I told him I really didn't care to work for anyone who would hang up because of that. I have worked for him a few times when he needed someone.

We have these for T-shirts

"we put the ohm, in Home."

"we do it in the dark."

"If we make a mistake, you'll be shocked!"



My favorite parody jingle is

Also, "you don't don't have to put up with Mr. Sparky...call 888 no malarkey!'

Our only slogan is "Specializing in Custom Residential, Commercial and Marine Electrical Projects". It seems to have worked over the last 10 years......
Some customers seem to like "cheesey" slogans tho........... To me a cheesey slogan lowers your brand's value and legitimacy to the high value customer.
