Tag Lines Should Emphasize Benefits, not Features

Tag lines – they should follow the same rules as elsewhere in your presentation.  “Don’t tell me about your lawn fertilizer, tell me about my lawn.

Bad tagline: “All inPlay – Multiplayer online video games for the visually impaired and their friends & family.” – This emphasizes FEATURES.  Why do we care that these are multiplayer online games?

Good one: “All inPlay – Allowing the visually impaired to play and interact with their friends and family unhandicapped and as equals.” – This emphasizes the benefits making it clear to anyone why this company is valuable.
