Your company name is the first thing a customer knows about your company, and can leave a lasting impression. Make it individual to the needs of your company, and make sure it fits with the feel of your company. happy

Well not to sound rude, but if you can't think of a name yourself without other people giving you ideas, maybe you shouldn't make a fb company.

Don't use any, you're company isn't going to last if you use 'wood' at the end.

No offence as well mate, and I know you are 12 so still learning, but your spelling is horrendous. If you intend to start a company, you should at least be competent at basic spelling. Your website will be key to your companies success and if it is laden with spelling errors, it will probably make people think twice about buying from you.

Here's an example, below I have composed two emails to Blackriver asking to distribute for them. Which do you think they would be most likely to respond to?

1/
Hi,

I am starting a new company and i would like to sell you're stuff for my company and i have a website you can find all the stuff i sell on their and all the prices and stuff. Plz reply to me and let me know if i can be a distrabutor for ur bizness.

2/
Hello,

I have recently started a company. I would like to sell some of your products, for example blackriver trucks, on the website. I was wondering if we could come to some sort of arrangement on slightly reduced prices if I intend to bulk buy.

Assuming people hate you because they are trying to give you advice is very childish. People weren't slagging off your idea because they hate you, it was because it was such a blatant rip off of an already established company name. As others have said, I think it'd be great to get more established UK fingerboard companies, you just need to ensure you are giving yourself the best possible chance at succeeding. In the words of Tesco: Every little helps. The more you do right with your company, the more likely you will succeed.

Look at fingersized for example. It's a nice looking website, easy to navigate and well laid out. There are no spelling mistakes, every product has pictures and the prices are very reasonable. Kerry stocks a lot of big fb brands. If you are serious about starting up a company, look no further than your fellow Bristolian for inspiration! (Can I have free stuff for brown nosing wink)

[It's hard being a grammar Nazi on my phone, so I hope I haven't made any embarrassing spelling errors tongue]

First of all Lowrider, putting 'wood' into your company name does NOT mean it will fail. That's an idiotic statement. Second of all, the kid's trying so give him some credit. At least he admitted they weren't his own decks.

And Simon (I think I remember Kerry calling you that...), keep at it, take on board our advice, and listen to people wiser than yourself. With any luck in a few years time you'll be able to give the same advice to other people doing what you're doing. Broxi's makes some good points; look at Fingersized and learn from it. Don't copy it, learn from it. Look at Axel. He's the same age as you and he conducts himself better than some of the businessmen I serve on a regular basis. Learn from the guys who've done this type of thing before and don't get defensive.

very happy

Well said Seamus. I think you're jumping the gun and not wanting or focusing on the part that isn't so fun which would be getting your "company" planned out first. Perfect your deck, get a solid name, possibly and website and review and then start marketing yourself.

I would - don't permaban him, let's just hope he learns to listen.

I'm locking this, because people post either a) helpful advice that you should heed, or b) shitty names as a joke. ABD now, move along happy

Read what people have said, absorb it, make a plan for what you want to do with this company next, then go from there with a new thread if you so wish. I don't see the point of opening another distribution in bristol but hey, good luck with stuff either way happy
