Need A Tagline For Promoting Business

I have a small business called “All Laced Up”. I am a Certified Athletic Therapist, Registered Massage Therapist, and Personal Trainer. I need something short, grab peoples attention and go with the massage therapy side as well as athletic therapy. Any suggestions would be great.


Jay’s Answer:  Since “All Laced Up” doesn’t give a clue of what you do (or for whom), it’s better to keep the tagline focused on the message. For example:

  • Certified Athletic Therapist
  • Therapy/Training for Amateur Athletes
  • Weekend Warriors’ Best Friend

Words To Describe A Strong, Successful Woman?

I am trying to come up with a name for a social group for female golfers and would like to incorporate a word that describes a strong, successful woman who is also feminine and girly. Words that I don’t want to use (or can’t use because someone else already is) include diva and sassy. I’m also not crazy about the word “glam” because I feel like it’s overused these days. Any other ideas?


Jay’s Answer:

  • Bold
  • Brazen
  • Saucy
  • Confident
  • Pert
  • Jaunty
  • Cheeky

Slogan Needed For A Fitness Business

I am starting a small business that will offer fitness classes to apartment residents on their apartment grounds. The name of the business is AM Fitness, which stands for accessible mobile fitness. So far I have come up with the following slogans: “delivering fitness to your door” and “getting fit is as easy as 1, 2, 3”. I looking for a slogan that describes what my business does. Thanks for your help


Jay’s Answer: To answer your simple request requires a deeper understanding of who you’re trying to attract:

  • Who are you trying to sell your classes to: the apartment residents or the apartment facility?
  • Where are you located?
  • Is your business name already filed, or are you open to changing it (“Accessible Mobile Fitness” isn’t a clear name – isn’t by being mobile, it’s accessible as well? I generally think of “accessible” as handicap-friendly). For example, can you morph the name to “I Am Fit” or “Fit To You”?
  • Are you teaching movement classes or weight classes?
  • To what sort of person (age, fitness level, price point, etc.)?


Art Association Needs Help With Gallery Name

Our non profit Art Association has been in existence for over 20 years. We have recently expanded our community involvement, but still have very little attendance at our main fundraiser from outside our membership and their friends and family. Recently, we have been offered the opportunity to have an empty store on a small street that is part of the main entrance to our city’s only major shopping mall from which to operate an art gallery. Besides displaying art, the group envisions having art demonstrations, workshops, and art related activities. The art association has a name which includes our city name, such as Santa Susana Artists’ Association. There has been some heated debate that the name should be the Santa Susana Artists’ Association Art Gallery. On the other side, there is thought that the name should be short, catchy, peak interest, invite further investigation and be easy to read from the street. A name such as ArtYourLife or Atmosphere are examples. If such a name were chosen the Executive Board still wanted to include the words .. the gallery of the Santa Susana Art Association or simply the SSAA Gallery in a smaller font or type than the main name. It should be noted that the association had a gallery in the past with the name of the group and it closed its doors after 2 years because of being in the wrong area of town. Also, there is some concern that the name of the gallery with the groups name immediately conjures up the thought of having only amateur art. We are hoping to receive some input. Would you kindly give us advice on a name and your reasons? Thanks so much!


Jay’s Answer: The name alone is unlikely to inspire someone who knows nothing about your gallery to stop. If the art is by local artists, and local shoppers are interested in local artists, then focus the name on that. If the art highlights a specific style or subject matter, focus the name on that. Why do you existing fans love your association so much? What is the compelling reasons for people to keep coming back and recommending it to their friends? The words they use no doubt contain a kernel of a great idea for you to leverage.

Name And Tagline For Boudoir Photography Biz

Hi. Getting started in boudoir photography. So far I’ve come up with Allure to use in the name. I want to use something other than boudoir, i.e.: Allure Boudoir Photography. The tag line I’ve come up with is “Do You”. Any ideas for a name and tag line? Thanks


Jay’s Answer: Where are you located? Can you use the location/region name in your name (“Alluring Photography of Hartford”)?

or, go a different way entirely, such as:

Capture Your Sensual Self: Beautiful Boudoir Photography

Catch Phrase For Student Housing Developer

I need a tagline for an on-campus Student Housing Developing company. We will be sending marketing material to Universities and Colleges, in an effort to have them consider hiring our company to develop new/additional On-Campus Student Housing complexes. I need to appeal to administration – and need to get them thinking about how additional on-campus housing could help their university enrollment. The following is a list of “What’s in it for the University to consider more housing”:

  1. Student Housing has a tremendous effect on a student’s success and education, and there is a direct correlation with increased enrollment.
  2. Experiences gained by living in on or near campus are an invaluable part of a student’s education.
  3. On campus residents are more likely to be involved in activities and use campus facilities, reinforcing their satisfaction with their university experience.
  4. More social interaction with administrators and faculty, which leads to a deepening of interest and focus on their discipline.
  5. Students who live in campus housing consistently persist in their studies, as well as graduate at significantly higher rates.
  6. A deeper sense of “school pride” is also present, contributing to a student’s sense of belonging.

Once I get the Universities attention (and business), we will move on to appeal to the Students and the Parents. Thanks for your creative thoughts (and taglines!). The name of the company is “Annex Student Living”


Jay’s Answer: The “What’s in it for the University to consider more housing” list isn’t likely to resonate for your target audience, which means even if people were to open your email, it’s unlikely to be acted upon. And once you’ve been ignored, they’re likely not to be receptive to future communication as well.

My suggestion: start by getting clear benefits for the admin folks. If you’re unsure about this, ask previous clients why they chose you. Also, why not interview a few of your target market to better understand why they would (or wouldn’t) be interested in your services?
