We talk a lot about trademarks on the podcast, but you may still be wondering why you would ever need to register a trademark in your business.
While it may seem like a hassle, registering a trademark is one of the most valuable protections you can put in place in your business.
In this episode I cover:
- The types of things that can be protected by a trademark
- How a trademark can set you up for success if you ever decide to expand into other states
- How a registered trademark can save you time and hassle if you ever have to file a lawsuit around your trademark
- The advantage to registering your trademark if you do business abroad
- How a trademark can help prevent counterfeiting
- The value a registered trademark can add to your business if you ever look to sell or take on investment
- How registering your trademark shows competitors you mean business
Key takeaway: If you’re committed to protecting your business for the long haul, a trademark registration should be on your list for 2019.
