Happy Wednesday, friends! Let’s talk Brand Protection😏🔐
Do you have a Brand Protection Strategy in place for your business? Consider the time, energy, & $$$$ invested in building your brand, increasing its recognition & strength, & more. For it to go unprotected is simply unreasonable & all too risky. Ask yourself, are you building a small business or an empire based on your brand?
✨SERVICE-BASED BUSINESSES: What assets do you have in your business? Many times, when there is no physical inventory in the equation, much of your business’ value lies in its intellectual property: The brand you’ve built & recognizable identity you’ve created. There is undeniable value in that. Are you taking the steps needed to shield that IP from infringers and to secure it yourself?
Be proactive about your brand protection, not reactive. Waiting to react is almost always more time consuming, more expensive, & not to mention mentally exhausting. Your business’ growth, not conflict, is deserving of that energy. Create a solid foundation for your business today, you’ll thank yourself later 😊 #ownyourbrand

OOPS. Sometimes, the camera falls 30 mins into your Ask Me Anything live, not once, not twice, but THREE times. All because you decided to be lazy & not just order a compatible tripod in time. #lessonlearned #bloopers #IGliveprobs
On that note, do you have a tripod that holds your phone vertically that you LOVE? Lemme know in the comments! I could use some help 😅
🎥📸 Did you catch the Ask Me Anything Live on Instagram today? We talked about shielding yourself from trademark infringement as a business owner, how a hashtag can become an intellectual property asset, & the value in implementing a non-disclosure agreement to protect your methods, clients’ information, recipes, or business contacts. Hopefully you find it helpful!

Hey Brand Builder 👋🏽 So you’ve got this awesome brand name you’re operating under, you’re investing your resources into developing, & you’re using to help your customers distinguish your amazing services or products from all of the other noise out there. Now, what are you doing to protect it?🔐
®️ Trademark protection is a must if you want to own the right to the use of your brand name or logo *exclusively*.
-Position yourself to be able to exclude others from using your name or anything like it
-Secure exclusive ownership of your trademark federally, across the entire United States
-Show up in the federal database so that others are deterred from infringing on your brand. (If you’re not there, how will others know it’s taken?)
