Everyone working with words knows that the FIRST WORDS are the biggest challenge in creating a text.
If you succeed in choosing the right first words – simple and cool, unexpected and attractive, exciting and intriguing, you are 90% done.
We hope we did it. Our first words:
All Small Towns of Canada in One Place
IN SEARCH OF BRAND
The brand’s idea was born unexpectedly. You know, all good things come this way.
A few months ago we, a group of friends, began discussing a new project about Small Towns of Canada. We wanted to create something:
- for those who surf the web in the evening looking for amazing places to travel next weekend
+ for those who live in those towns telling them about some amazing things they might not know about the place they live in;
+ digital – because we like Digital Media and are interested in digital trends;
+ intriguing – obviously;
+ memorable – obviously again;
+ helpful for all who discover our project by googling, by word of mouth, or from newspaper review J
A digital project about Small Towns is the best place to reach these goals.
We were looking for the right words for our future brand. You know, the right brand is 90% of success of the remaining 10%.
We began selecting the words:
Small, little, tiny, petite, weeny, diminutive, lilipuite, baby, pint-size, small-scale…
Beautiful, nice, amazing, great, glorious, magnificent, gorgeous, superb, elegant…
But when we paired these wonderful words, the result was terrible.
The words were incompatible for creating a really powerful brand.
One of us suggested to count…
…To count how many towns there are in Canada. We found every town in every Canadian Provincy and every Territory.
We had about 800-1200 towns.
Great number, right?
First of all, we checked the domain name. 1000towns.ca was available.
It is simple, nice and easy to remember:
Do you remember?
The Small Towns Brand was born:
1000 Towns of Canada
We scored 99%! We could relax and enjoy our project J
