It says a lot about you. It shows whether or not you’ve put any thought or effort into the mission of your business. It communicates whether or not you have a clear direction or vision about what you offer. Your tagline gives your business a personality and it communicates your purpose. I call it a signature, because I believe that it should be personal and distinct.
A tagline doesn’t always have to be cute or rhyme, but it does need to say something about you. Here are some examples of local, small business signatures and what they say.
