I get a lot of ammunition for this blog from the commercials on TV.
Usually I rant about this name or that tagline. But today I want to praise.
What a great promise in a seven-letter coined word!
This is brand naming at its pinnacle.
First, it’s short, pronounceable (many prescription names aren’t) and relevant.
Second, it’s a coined word that people will have no problem with. It’s what I’d call a “natural”.
Third, it’s appropriate, both for the ailment and for the patient. There’s an inherent promise in it as well as a positiveness that’s literally uplifting as you say the name.
To top it off, their tagline is also relevant and creditable: A medicine to help you move forward.
All in all a well grounded and well executed brand. So great work, Bristol-Myers Squibb.
