Infect customers with ear worms? YES!
An Ear Worm (from the German phrase Ohrwurm) sticks in your head. It’s a portion of a jingle that keeps playing over and over and over and over. 98% of people experience ear worms and ear worms tend to last longer for women.
Jingles with ear worms are designed to wiggle itself into a person’s brain and stick there for years. The best jingles pop up from nowhere years later.
That is what you want. You want something memorable so that people cannot forget your business.

The jingle can be music, or can just be a catchy set of words like a poem. That way they can’t forget your number and your company. Look at these examples of Ear Worms:
- Eight oh oh, three two five, three five, three five – Sheraton Hotels
- Eight hundred, nine one six, six one one two – Next Day Floors
