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?

We'll kick off on December 2nd.

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.

Do I get support, community or 101 access to you?

Yes-- while we don’t have a community specific to Trademarks on Tap, we do have built-in support. For this first round of the course, you have the ability to comment right on each lesson.

I’ll be going through those at least once a week and responding.

What is the refund policy?

We will give you a refund for any reason-- just make your request within 14 days from your date of purchase.

Are there any discounts?

Sorry, we cannot honor any additional discounts for this product as it's already offered at its lowest price!

What’s the difference between this course and The Contract Shop®?

The Contract Shop® is an online contract template store that sells legal templates and contracts. These templates are done-for-you, so that you can conveniently fill-in-the-blank and send off the documents to your clients or place them on your site.

This course is done-with-you, where I walk you through the trademark process from start to finish. Wherever possible, I’ll take the weight off by providing templates, but there’s no specific templates from The Contract Shop® provided inside Trademarks on Tap unless otherwise stated.

Our full list of questions & answers can be found FAQ page.

What makes you qualified to write a contract?

Most attorneys who sell templates did not learn directly from the lady who literally wrote the book on Contract Drafting (she taught at my law school). In the past year, I’ve been offered two in-house legal positions at Fortune 500 companies. I declined. I do this because I want to, not because I have to.

These templates are now in use by over 3,000 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?

You'll get plenty of instructions as to how to use your template with your download, and in your Hold My Hand™ guide, 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

What if it’s 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.

We’re customers of all this online business stuff too, and it really irckles our shirkles when we get treated like poo. So we’ve made a refund policy that is the opposite of that.
