Best Taglines According to Forbes

Forbes Magazine have done a ranking of the best-ever taglines. It’s quite interesting as one can see that some of the taglines are quite old. If you want to read the full story use the link.
A company can live without a tagline, but if it can formulate a unique and relevant one, the tagline will help it stick to it’s vision. As the question -what are we? already is answered the company can focus on doing business instead. The position and direction is set and that makes it a whole lot easier to make the right decisions at the right time.
