Transcript of this podcast episode available here

The AWB Firm gets more questions on trademarks than anything else. Trademarks are not only a smart investment to make sure everything you’ve worked so hard to create (your brand) is protected, but they can also be used as a tool to create additional revenue streams. Learn what you should trademark and how to plan for it in 2019.

In this week’s episode I cover:

    • The types of things in your business that can be protected by trademark (and those that can’t)
    • Reasons you should consider trademarks for your business
    • Great resources + tips for preliminary, DIY trademark searches
    • An advanced strategy to broaden your reach in 2019

Key takeaway: Even if you’re not ready just yet, taking a few simple steps now can help you prepare to take advantage of trademark protections in your business in 2019.
