Is the expression “Try Me” inappropriately sexually suggestive and “slangy” for use in retail marketing?
A client wants an expression for use on a sticker for an electronic device in a retail store to invite customers to try out the device. “Try me” was suggested as common and effective. However, others have warned that “Try me” is inappropriate as likely to be considered lewd.
Which view is correct? And if “Try me” is inappropriate or if the client insists on another expression, what would be more appropriate?
