For this episode, I've got some thoughts and some recommendations for you to help you figure out when is the right time for you as a business owner to get trademarked. Let's dive in.
I can tell you that the biggest reason why trademark applications fail is because the business owner didn't properly search for availability. In other words, there were other registered trademarks that already existed that were too similar to the one that was being applied for. There wasn't a really strong search that took place before the application was submitted.
So today, we're going to talk about why that search is so important. And I'll give you guys some actionable steps...
When we talk about getting trademarked or trademarking your business name or slogan, that language of "getting trademarked or trademarking" is actually super inaccurate.
In this episode, I'm going to walk you through what these trademark rules are and why I am knowingly breaking them. This episode is probably one of the most valuable podcast episodes I will ever do. So let's dive in.
