    Southwest Airlines is different. They don’t charge change fees, cancellation fees, or bag fees. They don’t publish their fares on aggregator websites. They don’t even have assigned seats. They might be weird, but they’re doing something right: JD Power ranked Southwest #1 among airlines in their 2017 customer satisfaction report.

    Survata Study Uncovers Most Memorable Brand Advertising Slogans

    KFC “Finger lickin’ good” edges Kay Jewelers “Every kiss begins with Kay” for top spot

    As covered by USA Today, Advertising and Market Research firm Survata today unveiled a top most memorable advertising slogans recognized by consumers. In a study of 3,286 U.S. consumers, KFC’s “Finger lickin’ good” came out on top with an 87.9 percent recognized rate, barely edging out Kay Jewelers highly successful “Every kiss begins with Kay” at 87.4 percent.

    The study, which looked at 76 advertising slogans from well-known brands spanning most consumer industries, asked consumers to read a famous slogan, then supply the brand behind the slogan in a “free” response. All identifying brand references – like “Kay” in “Every kiss begins with Kay” – were removed to respect the study’s integrity.

    All but one of the slogans found in the top 25 list were recognized by a majority of consumers, and the list included many classics from advertising juggernauts. However,

    The Top 50 “Most Memorable Brand Advertising Slogans” are:
    “Finger lickin’ good”, KFC — 87.9%
    “Every kiss begins with ___”, Kay Jewelers — 87.4%

    “15 minutes could save you 15% or more” Geico — 82.32%
    “Just do it”, Nike — 82.31%
    “Snap, Crackle, Pop”, Rice Krispies — 79.53%
    “You’re in good hands”, Allstate — 78.21%
    “Taste the rainbow”, Skittles — 75.14%
    “Melts in your mouth, not in your hands”, M&Ms –73.19%
    “Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s ____”, Maybelline — 69.28%
    “I’m lovin’ it”, McDonalds — 68.91%
    “____ is on your side”, Nationwide — 68.75%
    “They’re G-r-r-reat!” Frosted Flakes — 68.29%
    “We have the meats”, Arby’s — 67.77%
    “The king of beers”, Budweiser — 66.14%
    “M’m! M’m! Good!” Campbell’s — 62.05%
    “It gives you wings”, Red Bull — 59.31%
    “The happiest place on Earth”, Disney — 58.7%
    “The breakfast of champions” Wheaties — 57.14%
    “Can you hear me now?”, Verizon — 54.93%
    “Taste so good, cats ask for it by name” — 53.85%
    “Eat fresh”, Subway — 52.42%
    “When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight”, FedEx — 52.41%
    “At the corner of happy and healthy”, Walgreens — 51.54%
    “Betcha can’t eat just one”, Lays — 50.75%
    “The snack that smiles back” Goldfish — 49.02%
    Surprisingly, many brand slogans outside of the top 25 – and thus where a majority of consumers couldn’t identify the brand – were seemingly familiar. Some of the most familiar ones included
    What’s in your wallet” — Capital One — 43.14%
    “Think outside the bun” — Taco Bell — 33.86%
    There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s …” Mastercard — 45.19%

    Audience Validation: The Next Step In Programmatic Quality

    Survata presented at the Programmatic World Forum in San Francisco on the future of audience data quality. We were joined by our client Ian Kurtz from AKQA on the “Who” question in programmatic advertising. Do the audiences actually contain who data partners say they contain? Marketers are craving more confidence in the data they’re using every day. They want to know their targeting is more effective than a coin toss, especially since advertisers are spending over $1bn in programmatic media.

    We touched on Survata’s forward-looking view of Audience Validation and how we’re helping brands and agencies like AKQA tackle the issue of data quality. Imaging interviewing consumers in different programmatic segments and measuring the actual on-target percent. If you are looking for “moms” for your next campaign, you can log into your DMP and select the data provider that has the most accurate audience. This is the next step in programmatic quality.
