    Adverts that vied for my attention from 26 February to date.

    Where I can’t remember the entire jingle or slogan I’ll just state what I can in actual fact really remember. So there will be some blanks!

    It would be futile and senseless to the ‘thought experiment,’ if I somehow searched for the missing jingle/slogan.

    Incidentally these slogans are made especially for radio media houses so the jingle is very unlikely available anywhere else such as a google search for instance.

    This is why a company name or product name is crucial.

    If you are listening to the advert, and it sparks your interest, then the product name becomes important. Rattling out a phone number or web page is lost to me, I am concentrating on that damn taxi in front of me who has his hazards on, WTF is he going to do next.....ohhh what was that name again?

    I have a short memory, and will not memorize the phone number or web page.
    The other may be such an unusual name then I have to memorise it because I am interested in what there is to offer, eg 'Eucerin' skin products. Had to memorise it to remember it.

    However if the product name is meaningful, in the sense it describes what the product offers, then I will be able to recall the name later when i have a chance to make a search on the web.
    See Citizen X's examples, many of the adverts name says what it does. Wheelie

    I am the same, I can't read lots of text while I drive. I think the best is actually a short URL rather than a short name. If I can remember the URL then I will go and look it up. The other side of advertising on vehicles is that if the vehicle is driven by a twat one tends to remember the company negatively. I phoned Pick n Pay once because one of their vehicles was being driven recklessly. I got a call back from the regional manager and I forwarded the dashcam video to him.

    I think that advertising on vehicles is not a good idea for a small business due to the risk of being remembered for any driving offense - come on...we all drive like twats in this country - some vehicles are just more memorable.

    This is called branding. So important for a sustainable business. Especially in the poorer and rural communities, they rely on reputable brands that they can trust. Brands to them are so important that they will not remove the labels from quality clothing, so that people can see. Names are embedded. They may buy any washing powder, but still ask for Surf etc.

    In marketing, like in all walks of life, first impressions are important. What comes to mind when you mention BMW, Toyota or Telkom or Microsoft? That is how an image and a brand is built and that is what matters. It applies to individuals too. What is your brand and what do people first think of when your name is mentioned? Remember that as a small business, you are the business. So polish that marble!
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    You not the only one! Whilst brushing on various skills, I’m also trying to improve memory.

    Besides I don’t necessarily remember what I recalled a week ago.

    With the benefit of hindsight I realize that memorizing scripture is a good technique for improving memory. The Bible has some 750000 words in it. There was a time when I knew about 100000 of them. Regrettably this is no longer the case. I strive to improve though.
