Advertising, Question of the Day

We are exposed to brands and slogans on a continual basis in our lives. See how many of these brands associated with these marketing slogans that your students can come up with. 

-------------------- 

Can you identify the brands with these popular marketing slogans that are anagramed?  (Idea from Morning Brew, fun time creating my own)

Example: Please don't squeeze the RICH MAN --> CHARMIN

  1. America runs on KIN DUN
  2. Just DOT I
  3. Breakfast of MACHO PINS
  4. Melts in your mouth, not in ROUND HAY

Answers:

  1. Dunkin' Donuts: America runs on Dunkin'
  2. Nike: Just Do It
  3. Wheaties: Breakfast of Champions
  4. M&Ms: Melts in your mouth, not in your hand

Questions:

  1. What are 2-3 marketing jingles or slogans that are most memorable to you?
  2. Why are they memorable to you?
  3. What do you think is the purpose of a marketing slogan? Do you think the ones you mentioned are effective? Explain.

Here's the ready-to-go slides for this Question of the Day that you can use in your classroom.

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
