Business Name, Domain Name & Trademark Name Registrations
Once we have developed your logo and corporate identity, you may want to ensure its legal protection for various reasons.
Registration of the Business Name is your duty and does not fit into the scope of our marketing assignment. We may do initial searches to review name availability and direct you to the correct place to register your name, however this does not guarantee the availability of the name, and the registration of your business or company name remains your responsibility. Domain Names need to be registered by you, Marketing Angels will not register these on your behalf. Domain Names availability can be simply checked on the internet, which we may do as part of our corporate ID process, however the domain name registration is your responsibility.
A trademark can also be a useful marketing tool forging an association of value in the customer’s mind with your goods and services. Trademark Registration is a specialised legal field and beyond the scope of our responsibility, but we are able to refer you to a legal specialist who can offer you the right legal advice.
