Your brand is the compelling reason why a customer buys your products or services.


Understanding how to build a strong brand and how to add value to that brand will help you remain sustainable and grow.


So why are brands important? Brands enable businesses to charge premium prices and increase market share.


A brand is arguably the most value asset a business has.  Some brands are valued at incredible sums of money.  The Apple brand is thought to be worth $150 billion, a fifth of the company’s total value.


So protecting your brand makes sense. Insight into the many aspects of trademarks, why and when registration is important, and common pitfalls businesses encounter, will help you understand how to best protect your brand.


Not many businesses will get close to the dizzy heights of Apple. We can however use the same brand principles to strengthen and increase the value of our own brands.
