Walking-Super-Glue-Tube1-131x300.In our humble opinion, you know you’ve hit the big time when your brand becomes a verb.  How great is it when people use your brand name in their everyday conversation as an ACTION word?    What more could you want?  You want your brand to exist, to act, to be dynamic; not remain static as an object or a subject.  But achieving this higher level of being is not easy.  Only a few brands have managed to move from the realm of a noun to a verb.  How to do it is elusive, but trust us it’s amazing if and when your brand makes the transformation.

Not following?  Let’s use some examples to help explain what we’re talking about with The Original Super Glue(R) brand.  People are always saying:

Similarly, here are a few other examples of brand names that have become verbs:

  • “If you scotchtape the paper back together it will look just like new.”
  • “I googled him and found out lots of information.”
  • “Let me xerox this and then I’ll send it over to you.”
  • Chlorox it and you’ll never see the stain.”
  • “I had to lysol the dorm room.”
  • Windex that stuff right off the windshield.”
  • WD-40 that squeak in your door.”
  • Velcro it shut.”

Is your brand a verb?  Do you have another example of a brand that’s a verb?  Let us know and you may win free samples! … For now we’re off and running (or in the case of our super glue gel formula … off and crawling) …

Olivia turned 5 last month and celebrated with a tea party.  All of her friends received one of these darling teacup party favors – can you imagine?  The girls, and their moms, were thrilled!

The teacups were superglued to the saucers and then filled with pink roses, daisies, and baby’s breath!  What a special gift to take home – a treasure! 

Lucky Olivia (and friends) to have such a clever mom, and grandmothers, who help her celebrate with such style :)!

Bet your kindergarten teacher would appreciate one of these as a holiday gift (maybe add a fun little bookstore gift card on the side)!!
