Using Your Slogan Message To
Turn A Negative Into A Positive

When the Smuckers learned sales of their preserves were doing poorly because of the outrageous jelly name, the Smuckers family used a little Yankee intuitiveness.

Catchy Slogans Spirit of '76 Yankee DoodleThey used this daring red message on the left to reframe why the jelly is so tasty good.

Turning a negative into a positive often favors those who dare to put themselves in a "got to" situation.

A little audacity will get you in trouble and a lot will get you out:

 Spirit of '76 Yankee DoodlePredating the Smuckers' winning strategy, the implication in the Yankee Doodle song of: "stuck a feather in his hat and called it Macaroni," was that Yankees were such foolish simpletons that they must have thought sticking a feather in a cap would make them the height of fashion. 

The Macaroni wig was an extreme fashion in the 1770's, yet Yankee fashion was looked down upon as for doodling fools or simpletons.

Traditions place the origin of Yankee Doodle as a pre-Revolutionary War song—originally sung by British military officers and Hessian (German) mercenaries to humiliate the disheveled, colonial "Yankees."

Many people say the German mercenaries and British often marched to a version of the song which was sung to a man named Thomas Ditson, of Billerica, Massachusetts.

Ditson was tarred and feathered for attempting to buy a musket rifle in Boston ― in March of 1775, although he later fought at Concord fired up with the spirit of '76.

After the "shots heard round the world" at Lexington and Concord, Americans embraced the song and made it their own, reframing the reputation of the Yankees who had ultimately beaten the doodles

The Yankee song is still sung happily and patriotically in America, even by the Motley Fools on Wall Street.

Why Catchy Slogans
Quite Often Transcend Logic

Many branding techniques almost seem illogical, such as the way top companies use a subtle hint as their unexpected business name, subtitled with catchy slogans that evolve and reinforce the hint as it gains recognition.

How did the Amazon hint become a bookstore? Or a hand held device suddenly become an Apple?

Nevertheless, consumers are equally odd, often guided by emotional values that cultivate a growing need for unreachable designer status. Reality is irrelevant; perception is everything.

Astonishingly, the ingenuity of free enterprise thrives on this entertaining approach to doing business.

The wisdom of branding and catchy slogans seems to transcend its wackiness, because the compensation is massive and the outcome wickedly effective.
