What is a slogan? A slogan is a short memorable motto or phrase used for promoting an idea or purpose hoping to persuade members of the public. Examples of famous slogans are: “Just Do It” (Nike), “Melts in Your Mouth, Not in Your Hands” (M&M’s); “Because You’re Worth It” (L’Oreal Paris); and “The Breakfast of Champions” (Wheaties).
