4 Elements Of A Winning Brand
Establishing a strong brand is pivotal to business success. Protecting that brand is equally important. Yet many small businesses overlook an important first step in securing their brand: trademarks. A trademark is any unique word, symbol, name or device used to identify and distinguish the goods of one seller from the goods of another. A trademark allows the seller to protect what's trademarked from use and/or misuse by competitors while building brand loyalty among repeat customers. Trademarks also help prevent confusion or manipulation of consumers, who come to associate distinct attributes-in particular, quality-with a distinct brand.
