The Importance of Tag Lines

Did you know that most companies get noticed or remembered because they have a great tag line that appears with their logo. Think for a minute, how about Nike, (tag line ) "just do it" or how about Coke (tag line) "It's the real thing"! When you start to think of companies you remember their tag line don’t you?

Basically, a tag line should be used anywhere your business name and logo appear. This will definitely get your business recognized and help you with your marketing strategy.

Here are 10 places to use your tag line:

business cards,e-mails,social network pages,websites, newsletter/brochures, invoices,ads, banner listings, phone book listings, and letterhead.

Here are a few business cards I’ve designed for Designs by Shell …where creativity shines… see where your tag line would go…

Write Squidoo Pages and Get Paid

Writing for Squidoo is simple and easy. A great way to make some extra income and share information with others. Squidoo provides the platform, and allows you to add modules of all kinds to your one page article. If you have another business you need to market or promote this is where you can do that! This is one way that I promote my store Designs by Shell . I can share a variety of my products on any article I choose to write. Add Amazon or Ebay modules with products that relate to your topic as this encourages people to click on these items and if they purchase you will receive a royalty from their sale. How fantastic is that! As you make several of these pages called lens' the more opportunity you have to bring in income. Choose topics and content that you are interested in and the writing becomes very easy. It's not like work at all... So what are you waiting for become a squidoo lensmaster and you'll be on your way to making an on-line income. In the sidebar you can visit a sampling of my own squidoo lens.

Creating a Facebook Page for Your Business

Have you noticed while watching television lately all the advertisements for companies that are on facebook. It seem this is the hot place to host a page with your business. Yesterday I decided to get on the band wagon and create a page for my own business. There are a few catches it seems that until you get at least 25 likes (this is people liking your page) you can’t have your own url. Once you receive 25 likes then I believe you can have your business name in the url so that it can be found easily by others. Until then you have to promote your page through whatever means works for you. Social media groups like twitter, a blog and forums that you connect with are all good ways to get your page out there. Once you’ve created a page you’ll want to make sure that you update daily or at least every couple of days to keep it fresh and interesting. If you have a business and haven’t done this yet you should get started, it’s another way to promote your company.

Words That Roll Off Your Tongue

Words… we use them everyday! Certain words just roll off our tongues more easily than others. Have you ever thought of words as fun or pretty? Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. Do you ever think about some of the words or phrases in your vocabulary that you find yourself wanting to repeat just because they’re fun to say. My husband and I often find ourselves repeating words that we like from advertisements or commercials that we hear. One of our favourites has been the word ‘certainly’ it just rolls out so nicely! We kind of add our own little accent to it! How about ‘cupcake’ or ‘lollipop’. I thought it would be fun to see if any of you have a favourite word! Share it with me here…

Here are some designs and phrases I’ve been creating for t-shirts. Come by my store to see a wider selection!

Stripes, Spots and Feathers

On Saturday my husband and I took a trip to a nearby zoo. We were there for about 2 hours and then the rain came and it got cold. So unfortunately we didn’t spend as much time there as we would have liked. We missed seeing the lions and tigers. I am always amazed by the diversity and uniqueness of all the animals. Stripes, spots, feathers and so many other unique characteristics. Of course I had my camera and was able to capture some really unique pictures. I’ve added several already to greeting cards and added funny sayings with them. So much fun! I’ve also added them to other items like mugs, postcards, magnets and postage. Here are some of my favourites! Hope you enjoy them! Come by my store to see more of these amazing creatures.
