And That’s Why It’s So Important For Small Businesses Like Yours To Develop, Protect, And Leverage Trademarks Early And Often.
Things like your brand name, logo, slogan, the name of your signature product, service, course, or podcast are all just some of the creative assets your business can take ownership of (and fully monetize) with the power of trademarks.
After all, how can it make you money if it’s not . . . yours?!
It’s also important to understand that it takes more than filling out a trademark application to secure trademark registrations that are effective in expanding the reach and revenues of your brand.
It’s not just a transaction – it’s a strategy.
That’s why the trademark application assembly line services you find on the internet may be cheaper, but probably won’t be better than hiring an attorney to get the job done right for your business.
The only way your business can survive is by getting in front of your ideal customer and getting them to buy your product or service again and again.
Your registered trademark ensures that your brand and ONLY your brand profits from all of the effort$ it takes to attract and retain your ideal customer, and turn them into a loyal fan and mini-marketing machine for your business.

Trademarks help your customers know what they’re buying and from whom . . . so they keep coming back.
You invest heavily to make sure your customers:
Know and see your brand;
love your products/services;
Have a positive and memorable experience that implants the impression of your brand on their brains
Every time your brand succeeds in creating this experience for your ideal client, you end up with another repeat customer, who will ultimately send you a handful of other repeat customers.
Happy customers talk about their experiences to people just like them, who value what they value, and want what they want. This is the recipe for creating customer goodwill, brand recognition, and a profitable brand. This is also the reason you can’t afford for your customers to confuse your brand with ANYONE else’s.
Aside from securing your right to exclusively use your brand collateral and their revenue-generating qualities, registered trademarks are business assets that your business can leverage to take advantage of funding opportunities and gain access to much-needed capital.
If your business doesn't increase in value over time, it's not a business, it's an expensive job.
The whole purpose of business ownership is to create wealth, so you have to secure the assets that contribute to the value of your business. Intellectual property like trademark registrations increase in value as your business grows, so it’s imperative to develop as many trademarks as you can, and to protect them early and adequately.
Leveraging trademarks is a major key to the growth and success of your brand.
Experts suggest that newer small businesses spend anywhere from 10% - 20% or more of revenue on their marketing efforts within the first six months in business. And according to Fundera, 53% of small businesses spend more than $10,000 annually on marketing.
Until you own all of your trademark(s), your business is taking a major risk by marketing its brand collateral. Until your brand is protected by trademarks, the very investments you’re making to grow your brand . . . may actually end up growing someone else’s.
Your hit slogan, design, drawing, phrase, podcast or coursename, or other mark is only yours if you own it. You can only sell it, if you own it . . . Trademarking ALL of your trademarkable brand collateral is the only way you can own it. Every time you figure out you can make money off of a mark, your next move should be to trademark it!
