If you want to create your own catch phrases, there are some things that you need to consider. By following the steps in this article, you will be able to come up with a unique and catchy phrase that you can use over and over again.

Who knows… you might influence others to use it as well.

Ever dreamed of creating your own catch phrase? How many times have you heard this catch phrase – you’re despicable? Well, you’re in luck because after you’re through reading this article, you have already created one of your own. First and foremost, you should decide on the phrase’s purpose. When saying goodbye or hello, you can create your own catch phrase by using personalized interjections. As long as you’ve decided on what you really want, this will be easy. The second step is to think on the details carefully. Do you want a complex or simple catch phrase? Is the phrase sarcastic or just silly? Are you going to use it sparingly or often? You will need to answer these questions so that you can address on the details.

Develop some ideas. It would be handy if you always carry a pen and paper with you so that when ideas come into your mind, you can write it down instantly. Write down as many ideas as you can. It doesn’t really matter of the ideas don’t make sense to you because at this point, you still can’t expect quality catch phrases. Organize all the ideas you’ve generated so that it will be easier to sort them out. When you decide to sort out the ideas, you can now use elimination. Eliminate the ones you don’t like or the ones that are potentially offensive. Pick the good ones that you really like. It’s not good to use offensive phrases because this can start an argument or you can also get into mischief.

Try using the catch phrases. You will need to use the phrases in different situations and with different people. Try to observe how they react to the catch phrases. If you don’t get the expected responses, you can try the other ones on your list. Also, you need to evaluate if you’re comfortable using it. If you feel uncomfortable, think of another one. When you’ve already found the perfect catch phrase, use it often and don’t change it. Over time, people will appreciate it and you might even hear them saying your catch phrases. You will surely be happy when you hear other people saying it!

Create an original catch phrase. You can also ask opinions from family members and close friends. The more ideas you’re able to generate, the more catch phrases you can develop. You can also create expressions that are related to your profession or hobbies. Good luck!

    how about somethin similar but woth a different twist to whats out in the market today like "Smoothies 4 Life"...that way u guys could also put out a charity jar <------ (Hence the 4 Life part of the title) for a different charity every 2 or 3 months, i would lean more towards the 3 side unless u have a school that loves helping out whenever they can...my school used to do something similar in style with the charity thing which always turned out great! we also even did one for our own school that needed to be updated & we raised triple the amount of what any of the other charities got...of course thats only because it's the students "House" & that of course fired everyone back up to keep giving!
