Build a Wordbank of Go-To Phrases: 57 Ideas to Start You Off!

Create a brand language library

In this installment of our brand language series I’m going to contradict myself slightly.

It’s perfectly fine to use run-of-the-mill words sometimes. Sometimes you need to ‘say what it does on tin’.

So, as well as your lexicon of interesting and unusual words (which we talked about in this post), it helps to create a bank of simple phrases you can turn to when you need to write and time is short.

1) First, you need to list out the selling points or benefits of your offering.

2) Next, run these through a thesaurus to find other ways to describe them.

3) Finally, create your wordbank of go-to phrases.

To give you a headstart, I’ve compiled a list of a few common benefits and ways in which you can describe them.

1) Ways to say ‘makes it easier’

  • Easy peasy
  • Easy as pie

For more ideas like these, grab yourself a copy of Words That Sell. However, be warned that the words are not the most inspiring and so we highly recommend you create your own bank of brand language that truly expresses who you are and how you want your reader to feel.

And if you would like some help with this, it’s our favourite thing on Earth. Please drop us a line and we would be utterly delighted to oblige.
