L.L. Bean's Cause Marketing in Six Words
From Paul Jones of Alden Keene & Associates, Inc.
L.L. Bean, the Maine retailer and catalog company, is using a six-word statement as a tagline for its cause marketing effort called 'Million Moment Mission.' The six-word line is; “You Share. We Give. Kids Win.” Here’s how it works: any time you perform a qualifying action… a like on Facebook, a Tweet, submit a story and/or photo about your experience with L.L. Bean’s merchandise or in the great outdoors…the company will donate $1 to programs for kids from the National Park Foundation. The tagline, therefore, distills the campaign very well. http://bit.ly/NtRpxJ

That’s why the highest impact form of web writing involves the 2nd person direct writing style, with words like “you” and “you’re.” (Like the style I’m using right now!) Your audience wants to know you’re talking to them. They don’t want to be a little tadpole in an ocean of viewers. They want see that in every piece of communication — your e-letter, your blog, your Facebook post — that you’re speaking directly to them, as if they’re your guest at a dinner party. http://bit.ly/NtSTrD
