Spaces behind \textgreater not working as expected

I am faced with the following problem. I write a document in which I refer to a registered brand and thus looks like "MyBrand\textrademark" and this work. However, there is no spcae before the consecutive word even if I add a lot of spaces. The easiest fix I have found so far is to a dd an ”~" but isn't there a nicer way ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Welcome to TeX.sx! The usual way is to use either \texttrademark{} nextword or \texttrademark\ nextword. – Qrrbrbirlbel Oct 30 '12 at 19:58
\, or \thinspace or \enspace – azetina Oct 30 '12 at 19:59
Thanks for your quick answer and comments. I agree with Qrrbrbirlbel and I think it is a duplicate. – John Oct 30 '12 at 20:06

If you don't want to manually insert a space after each use, you could use the the xspace package to intelligently insert a space as needed:

MyBrand\texttrademark is cool.

A cool brand is MyBrand\texttrademark.
