A great slogan is often a huge driving force behind a great brand’s staying power.  A memorable tagline that gets stuck in the minds of a target audience is exactly what sells those popular products and services, especially if they stand the test of time.  The longer a slogan is around, the more likely the product or service it represents is immensely successful.
