Portfolio of Catch Phrases - Slogans and Lead In Lines for Companies, Products & Services

Having and properly using a good slogan, catch phrase or lead-in line is an important part of advertising your business. A clever use of language combined with the fundamental importance of the products and/or services your company offers will produce several positive results:

  • A clever slogan or catch phrase will make your company name as well as the products and services you offer both memorable and entertaining.
  • The emotional response to the catch phrase or slogan you choose to use will have a lasting effect upon all who see and read it. Where your audience's attention may jump from moment to moment in a hectic and distracting world, an emotional response has a lasting existence and is therefore more memorable.



My first experience with slogans was in 1984. It involved the incidental use of a phrase I had playfully used for years. I was living in Atlanta and working in the lounge adjoining a five star restaurant. A group of young professionals came in to the lounge. They were involved in advertising and I overheard their discussion. Apparently, they had landed or hoped to land a large account and felt a great deal of pressure and frustration. The leader of the group was encouraging the others, “You would be surprised where you can get your best ideas. . . “ I came back to their table and took the drink order for them. The leader asked me … “What do you think of when you think of Dentyne gum?” I replied “Well, I always say it is ‘the gum that bites me back’ I have said this for years” I laughed about it.The phrase was my own and I had only used it when with close friends otherwise. Well, the campaign using my phrase ran for a long time, which was how I rated my idea. I knew I had given away a good ad idea. If I had been smart, I would have made a deal before I said a word. If they had been smart, they would have come back to hire me.




In 2002, when working for Cabin Creek Timber Frames, I suggested a modification to an existing slogan/line which was:

Building America's Future Historic Homes Today

Which then became:

Building Tomorrow’s Historic Homes Today TM




In 2005, when working with an excavation and building contractor, we wanted to add a catchy slogan/line to their internet advertising. The company, Solid Rock Excavating & Poured Walls, did just that .. site excavation and basement poured walls with a beautiful white-faux-brick face. While compiling photos of nearly finished homes built on their basement walls and backfilled by Solid Rock … It struck me . . .

Built Upon Solid Rock TM

  The phrase could be used in various ways as the company served both commercial and residential projects:

Everyone wants a home . . .
Built Upon Solid Rock TM




In 1996, I decided to publish a collection of writings and informative material and the name "The Healing Path" appealed to me. I had just been through a 5 year struggle for my health. The catch phrase I used for this website publication became

"Each in our own way, we make our journey upon .... The Healing PathTM"
