I like so many things about Tiffany. First, she “gets it” when it comes to branding and image packaging and presentation. Second, she is intelligent. Whenever she opens her mouth to speak, she makes sense. Third, her music beyond being fun and enjoyable, has a clear and direct demographic she targets i.e. women. Finally, although there are so much more qualities about her as a person and music brand that I admire, she understands music is very much about business as it is creativity.
In her recent appearance and interview with Factory 78, she has a lot to say about music business and also branding. AML artists, you all should seriously begin thinking about trademarking your brand names. You can then license your trademarked names to create more streams of revenue. Also, there are many artists entering the music business and they seem oblivious to already existing names i.e. you got there before they did. They use your similar names and it creates confusion. You have a stronger leg to stand on, especially in a courtroom, if you trademark your name. The public, media and fans should not be confused with which artist we speak of. Also, Tiffany mentioned something about how she changed her name because it was way too generic and her fans could not find her when they googled her name. Take notes AML artists. Be creative with the stage names you come up with.
