BRAND YOUR BIZ

An all-in-one trademark registration package for the business owner who’s ready to stand out from the competition, protect their brand, and ready to expand.


You're ready to feel secure in your business and if someone beats you to the punch in registering your trademark, you'll be devastated.

But seriously, does this sound familiar?

➢ You’re feeling overwhelmed and scared because your business is FINALLY growing, but legally you’re stuck. It seems like every time you turn around, you see posts about copycats and you’re scared that it’ll happen to you one day. The last thing you want to do is rebrand because you didn't register the trademark first. Rebranding costs a lot of money and takes a lot of time that you just don't have.

➢ You dream of the day that you only have to work 20 hours a week in your business, and can spend more time with your loved ones. You're ready to hire a team, but want to be confident that your brand is protected.

➢ You want security in your business, and it's time to become the high-end brand you've been dreaming about. You don’t want anyone else profiting from your name, logo, or slogan. You know it’s time to register your trademark and you’re ready to have the peace of mind that hiring a lawyer would bring you.


Lucky for you, you’ve come to the right place.

Introducing:

Brand Your Biz 

trademark registration package 


A flat fee trademark package for the busy entrepreneur who’s ready to get legit, build credibility in their business, and grow to the next level.

Meet your trademark attorney

Hey, I’m Michelle. This 5'2" attorney enjoys working with women entrepreneurs to protect their brand through registering trademarks so that copycats can’t steal from you without your permission or consequences. 


Over time, I’ve not only registered trademarks for the small businesses I’ve worked with, but I’ve educated them in the process. The women I work with understand what to do with their trademark after registration and how to leverage their trademarks after we’re done working together.

How good would it feel if you had clients buy from you just because of your name, magazine features, and investors banging down your door to work with you?


Just imagine...

• Waking up to a Forbes feature discussing your awesome business

• Phone calls from conference planners who want you to speak and PAY YOU for it

• Paid invoices and sales overnight because clients and customers trust you and know that you provide quality and an experience that can't be duplicated

This is all possible when you register your trademarks 


➣ Having a high profile business that's featured in magazines and on huge platforms


➣ Working with the dreamiest of dream clients


➣ Tripling your revenue because registered trademark owners have 3x the growth than ones that don't register


➣ When you register your trademark, you are opening up your business to the possible and unimaginable opportunities.

Unfortunately, this is what usually happens when you wait to register your trademark…


The name you've chosen is already taken

This means you have to change the name, which means a total rebrand. Your people know you by your trademark and now you can't even use it because you waited until you were ready. 


Someone has stolen your name

You spent so much time coming up with this name and now someone else is posing as you and all you can do is ask nicely if they'll take it down. There's no urgency for the copycat to take it down because you can't prove you own the trademark. 


Have a hard time getting investors

Investors don't want to take on the risk of getting hit with a trademark infringement lawsuit. They want to be sure all of the legal tasks are in place, so that their money is making money. 

But you're smart and that's why you're here today 

You know your business can change lives and you're ready to make a splash in your industry. 


It's time for the brand recognition that you deserve, but you know you can't do it alone. 


You know what you want your business and life to look like. You're ready for your brand to be recognized like the other industry leaders. 


And you're going to take that next step today when you fill out


Here’s what it's like working with me

Here’s how it works…


Step 1

Initially, I will gather information from you for the online trademark registration process through a Discovery or Clarity Call. 


Step 2

If we agree to work together, I will send you an invoice and fee agreement for you to sign. Then I'll send a questionnaire for you to fill out.


Step 3

I'll conduct a trademark search and give you a written recommendation on whether to proceed with the application.


Step 4

File TM Application and I will send you an email with a link where I will need to get your signature and approval of the application. 


Step 5 

It's the waiting game. I answer any office actions and correspondence from the USPTO.


Step 6

You're a registered trademark owner! I'll send you the original certificate and you can finally use the ® symbol.

Here’s everything that’s included in the 
Brand Your Biz trademark package:


  • ➢ Trademark clearance search with up to 5 classes included (because your trademark can be rejected if there’s a similar trademark in a similar class. Think about wine and wine glasses, although different classes, a brand could sell both). 
  • ➢ Written recommendation of the trademark 
  • ➢ Trademark application filing with the United State Patent and Trademark Office
  • ➢Response to all office actions
  • ➢Constant communication with me (NOT A PARALEGAL) on the next steps and where you are in the trademark process
  • ➢Trademark maintenance guide so you know what to do after your mark has been registered
  • ➢Trademark certificate after your trademark is registered
  • ➢No unexpected bills or invoices (you know the fees upfront)


The investment to file one (1) trademark application is $2,125 in 2 payments OR $2,400 in 4 payments.

(A name and a logo are two separate trademark applications). 

Plus these BONUSES:


  • Bonus #1

  • A Discovery Call

  • Normally, I charge for discovery calls but with this package, the discovery call is free. You can ask any questions you have about the trademark process during this call. 


  • Bonus #2

  • Cease and Desist letter template

  • After trademark registration, you'll receive a template that you can send out to any copycat who's using your trademark without your permission.

Before Trademark Registration

😞

  • • No brand recognition so you're not able to reach your ideal client/customer
  • • You're remaining tight lipped about your business, which means that no one knows about you and you’re not making money
  • • Hoping and praying that nobody has registered the trademark for the name or logo you love
  • • Chasing brands to collaborate with and trying to get in front of the right audience
  • • Getting turned down by investors because they don't want to take the risk working with you

After Trademark Registration

😃

  • • Brand recognition turns into brand loyalty so you're continuing to grow with new and old clients/customers
  • • Feeling confident when discussing your business because you know that no one can use your name without a cease and desist letter
  • • Marketability increases, and big brands and investors want to work together because they know that they aren’t risking their reputation and won’t be liable for a trademark that you don’t own
  • • Signing clients left and right because you know if they try to steal from you, you have protection
  • • Your likelihood of growth in revenue increases three-fold 
  • • Leverage your trademarks to create more income in your business

I am SO glad I hired Michelle! I'm disappointed that the company name I was IN LOVE WITH turned out to be already trademarked, but I'm equally as glad that I hired Michelle because I wouldn't have known. She saved me tons of time and money!

Allison

Business Owner

Michelle has such a vast knowledge due to her law experience and being involved in the arts for many years. As an artist myself, it was comforting knowing that she understood what steps needed to be taken in order to protect my brand. She gave me sound advice that I will definitely use moving forward.

finitely use moving forward.

FAQs


Businesses copy all the time. Registering a trademark is a waste of time, so what’s the point?

First, registering your trademark is a must if you are working with investors or Amazon. Investors don’t want to touch you with a 10 foot pole if you don’t have the trademark registered with the Trademark Office.

In addition, if someone infringes on your trademark you can send a cease and desist letter and you have the serial number of your trademark, it will have a much greater impact on the infringer. For more benefits, read this blog post.

What happens if the name I want is taken?

If the name you want is taken, we will strategize together how to fix the trademark so that we can push it through. Or you can stop the process and use a different name. Since I perform the trademark process in two steps (search, then file) with two different payments associated with it, you won’t have to pay for the whole package if you decide not to file.

If you want to use a different name, we will have to do an additional search, and you'll be charged an additional fee for the new search.

How long will it take to register my trademark?

The trademark process takes about 9-12 months. I will be on the matter the whole time, continually sending updates.

What if I’m not selling anything yet, can I still register a trademark?

Yes, if you have a name that you love, I highly suggest “saving your spot” using a 1(b) application. You can file a 1(b) application which allows a mark to be filed without showing use at the time of filing. A 1(b) application preserves your rights on the trademark register as the first filed mark. When you start using your trademark, I will file a “statement of use” where you'll show the Trademark Office that you're using your trademark.

What do I do after my trademark is approved?

Yes, if you have a name that you love, I highly suggest “saving your spot” using a 1(b) application. You can file a 1(b) application which allows a mark to be filed without showing use at the time of filing. A 1(b) application preserves your rights on the trademark register as the first filed mark. When you start using your trademark, I will file a “statement of use” where you'll show the Trademark Office that you're using your trademark.
