Has anyone heard of The Granite Securites? Your thoughts please.

Nope.

From what I hear, they're a rock-solid operation!

I think they are based out Bedrock? Barney Rubble might be the one running things there.

I love how they have a "The" at the beginning of their name.


We are "THE Granite Securities"


We are 'Da Granite baby!

Don't forget to deck your company car with spinning hubcaps and have gold caps on your teeth.

Look at what I've started

I have an opportunity to go indy. I have no experience but a no quit attituden and I'm pretty good at networking due to my participation in various county and statewide organizations. My hard work in those organizations gave me a way to grow a decent size network.

I spoke to them once but their monthly fees were very expensive.  I would look at Quest Capital or Berthal Fisher.

I wouldn’t go with anything I never I have not heard before.
Think of yourself as the client of the company. Would you be motivated to have
shares of even a rep from a no-name company? How hard do you have to work to
put the client at ease to even do business with you? (No matter what the track
record looks like.) You ability to convey ideas to the client will be very
important….of course.

"I wouldn't go with anything I have not heard before"



Arrogant...and so so wrong.


You think because you haven't heard of it it's not good?

Yea. Name recognition, in this business, usually means your firm name associated with something bad (scandals, churning, etc.). Just look at the majors. Besides commercials, when was the last time you saw/read a news article mentioning a major wire's name and it be good news?


Perhaps, name recognition is a liability afterall. Hmmm...

It is a two way street. Depending on the firm. But lets not forget to
orient ourselves with the client to see what they would think. You will
give them your card, set an appointment and they will of-course do some
research. All im saying that it takes more energy to put a potential
buyer at ease to do business with a unheard of than a established
known. Its a true evil. Good or bad, image is everything in this
country.

Precisely my point.  While sometimes it can be a little harder to get the conversation started when the client hasn't heard of your firm, it can also put you in the position where YOU define what your firm is about, rather than dealing with their preconceptions.


I often dealt with this first hand when I was working with AGE before they were a well known name in the NY area....
