“Like a warm summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air, and you.“– Langston Hughes
Humor makes everything better. As Hughes (one of my favorite poets) noted, humor can break the ice. No doubt, as he fought for Civil Rights, he had to break the tension more than once.
But humor is useful in business, too. In moderation, it makes business meetings easier to pass. It just makes dealings more fun.
And that’s where George Huber of VDB Coins uses humor to great effect.
George is a coin dealer. He works with only the nicest, most beautiful collectible coins. He doesn’t sell anything he wouldn’t want in his collection.
Because, as he puts it, “Life is too short to buy ugly coins.”
It’s memorable, it connects him to his customers, and it’s funny.
Coin collectors are picky, and sometimes very serious about the coins they buy. Light humor breathed into their consideration is a welcome respite from the seriousness of competition and strain of making just the right purchase.
And, George is a funny guy to talk to. Deadly serious about serious coins, but he just gets business.
Which is why we at Interfanatic were so pleased to design and build him a new website to replace his aging platform. George is great to work with. His customers seem to like his new site, too.
