Trademarks On Tap

Trademarks On Tap

How to name + trademark your business name, courses or services for the totally clueless + legally lost.

You’ve spent thousands of hours + dollars on creating your brand… course… or business.

You’re not going to let someone swoop in and steal your name, are you?!

Does Any of This Sound Familiar?

  • You’re ready to stop hiding and get more visible, without risking any unwanted negative attention (like a lawsuit)
  • You have a great idea for a course, but can’t seem to find the perfect name so you sit on your hands… but your nervous someone else will launch it first while you wait
  • You’ve spent thousands of dollars + hours building a brand you love… but you’re afraid someone could take it away at the drop of a (very unwelcome) letter
  • Anything legal makes your head spin… you always have that nagging feeling that you’re missing something important
  • You don’t know what you’d do if you were forced to change your name-- and you don’t even want to think about how much money this swap would cost

If any of these are scary-accurate, it’s time for you to register for a trademark!

You’re a smart cookie… smart enough to know you don’t know what you don’t know.

And boy, have I helped many-a-gal (and guy) like you out before. 

I’ve done dozens of trademark clean-ups, fixing the mistakes made by discount trademark registration sites, like Legal Zoom and Trademarkia.

Going with a discount trademark registration site is like hiring some rando off the street to paint your car. It might get done, but chances are you’ll have to pay for the crappy paint job AND for a real pro to fix everything for you.

But on the other hand, lawyers are SO expensive… even I charge over $4000 for my trademark services!And that’s just the starter price to work with me...

So now you’re stuck-- you know you’ve got some precious cargo on board, but you’re not sure who to trust with such a valuable asset.

What if you trusted the #1 person who has your back? (You!)

Yep, that's right. You can file your own trademarks with a little bit of know-how and support. And that's where Trademarks on Tap comes in.

When Is the Best Time to Register Your Name/Logo/Tagline?

Right. Now. It’s a myth that you should wait “until you get big enough,” or “until you have sales.”

Waiting could cost you a fortune.

Plus, there’s a special kind of trademark that allows you to call dibs on your name… sometimes years before you ever use it.

That means you can claim the name for a course idea you have, then create the course later!

And, while you’ve been taking your time to develop your course, no one else is allowed to use your name in the meantime.

Every day you wait makes it more and more likely someone could come along and take your dream name.

Who is this for?

  • Online course creators
  • Designers
  • Copywriters
  • Educators
  • Creatives
  • Bloggers
  • Photographers
  • Newbie business owners who want to dot every “i” and cross every “t”
  • Advanced business owners who “forgot” to trademark their stuff
  • Baby Lawyers (they don’t teach you this stuff in law school!)

This is NOT a good fit for:

  • Fine Artists looking to protect their paintings
  • Businesses that have the funds to hire an attorney every time they need a trademark
  • Someone who has already applied for a trademark registration through a “discount” legal site (like Legal Zoom) and received a rejection--- sorry! You’ll need a lawyer to clean that mess up for you :(

What Can I Trademark?

  • Course names, logos and taglines
  • Business names, logos and taglines
  • Service Package names
  • Blog Names or logos
  • Newsletter Names or logos
  • Product names

How does the course work?

Check out now and you'll receive instant access to the materials! 

Do I get lifetime access to the course material?

Yes! No matter how much the price increases for future rounds of purchasers, or how much more material we add, you’ll always have access to Trademarks on Tap. This also means you can return and go through the system each time you have a new name, logo or tagline to trademark.

Are there any additional costs besides the enrollment in the course?

Yes. When you file a trademark, the government requires a filing fee to process your application. I mean, it’s the government… they always want more money. The fee is $325 per trademark application, with the government requesting $225 up front to file your application and then $100 about a year later to finalize it.

I’m not in the United States-- is this course for me?

This course is for anyone who sells their services or products to people in the United States. A US trademark registration is the gold standard across the world (#sorrynotsorry other countries).

If you are selling in, marketing to, or afraid of getting ripped off by those scandalous Americans (oh haiiiii!), then you’ll want a US-based trademark registration, possibly by itself or in addition to a trademark registration in your native country.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who created these contract templates?

All of our templates are drafted by Christina Scalera, a licensed attorney. They are also peer-reviewed by at least two licensed attorneys—one based in the US and one based in the country the template will be used in [for example, for all of our Canadian entrepreneurs, we have a Canadian attorney review those templates]. 

These templates are now in use by over 5,000 creatives. That’s a lot of feedback we’ve been able to process and use to improve our templates!

What do I have to do after I download my template?

Each template is delivered immediately in PDF and Word formats for easy use "as is." You'll receive access to your lifetime portal shortly after your purchase, where you can always go back to access the most recent version of the template and learn how to upload your template to any e-signing platform of your choice.

You'll get plenty of instructions as to how to use your template with your download, and in your Hold My Hand™ guide [available for most contract templates], we'll also show you how to make the most of your contract. Pinky swear, I send my clients proposals in less than 30 seconds, and so can you. 

Do these contract templates work in my state?

Getting your contract template reviewed by an attorney in your area is a good idea, but starting with one of our templates will save you a ton of money. After all, having a very well-drafted, peer-reviewed, used-by-many contract is better than nothing.

I live in Canada, Australia, the UK, or outside the United States. Can I use your contract templates?

Yes! Our contract templates are not dependent on local laws and are applicable no matter where your clients are in the world. Our philosophy is that we want to capture the spirit and mutual understanding of the relationship between the service provider and client in an easy-to-understand, accessible way.

Therefore, we have international versions of select contract templates for convenience, but not out of necessity. Our Hold My Hand™ guide will walk you through how to adjust for international use.

What if this contract is not a good fit for my business?

We get it, sometimes things don't work out. That's why we offer a 14-day no-hassle refund for any reason. You don't have to show us anything. You don't have to prove anything. We'll ask you some simple admin questions to get your refund processed and the funds will be back in your account within 6 business days.
