Courage: Palos Verdes Coin Exchange – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Palos Verdes Coin Exchange, for our Customer Spotlight on Courage, an Interfanatic Quality

Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.

Baltasar Gracian

Coin dealers require immense knowledge. Just to know where to look for current market prices takes understanding of using a huge number of varied resources. And, like all business ventures, they must exhibit immense courage to go out on their own and earn a living wage.

Most coin business in 2021 is online. It’s less risky and simpler that way. Many brick and mortars have closed their doors, eschewing complications and overhead in favor of doing business online only.

Not Ron Sannes and Vincent Rangone of Palos Verdes Coin Exchange. They have bucked the trend, opening, succeeding, and indeed growing their business at its physical location. Sannes and Rangone do so by harnessing their immense knowledge and by employing their courage. They use their experience to power their self-confidence, harnessing their courage and turning it in to success.

Gracian knew many wise people. And he saw many persecuted and slaughtered for their wisdom in their faith. But he also saw that wisdom not shared was wasted.

Sannes and Rangone use their wisdom and courage to succeed. And we’re so pleased to be an integral part of their success.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Sannes for close to a decade. If you know Sannes the way I know him, you know he personifies courage.

Courage: An Interfanatic Quality

We don’t claim to be courageous, but I guess we must be at least a little. I prefer to think of Interfanatic as encouraging the courageous. We guide them with our wisdom and experience to success. Courage is definitely a part of our everyday life, but just a little bit. We keep going and we do our best to help our courageous clientele thrive.

Palos Verdes Coin Exchange: Wisdom Empowered by Courage

Do you have any idea how complicated it is to price a coin? First, you must authenticate it – difficult in this time of sophisticated and prevalent counterfeits. Then, you must grade it. Difficult to ascertain even for the most seasoned coin graders. Then you must know how to correctly employ a cross-section of coin market exchanges to properly price your coin for a viable sale. As a dealer, you must know the highest amount you can pay and still make money on a sale, and you must price competitively for a quick sale as collectors don’t like stale inventory. And you must have the knowledge to do all of this with confidence, on the fly without any reference but your experience.

That’s exactly what Ron and Vince do daily at PV Coin Exchange. They have earned an excellent reputation as fair dealers from both sellers and buyers.

Palos Verdes Coin Exchange deals daily in both run of the mill coins like common Lincoln cents and Morgan dollars, to rarities both conditional and exquisite. They deal in bulk 90% silver and rare certified gold coins. Their shop in Malaga Cove, near the police station (safe) and wisely positioned at the foot of the Palos Verdes Peninsula ‘Hill’ gives them an excellent place of business for estate inheritors and coin collectors.

Palos Verdes Coin Exchange is also a member in good standing of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. This gives buyers and sellers confidence in an established business.

Interfanatic manages PV Coin Exchange‘s Search Ad spend to help them provide a consistently high level of service.”

It’s great fun working with PV Coin Exchange. They’re great at what they do, and the subject matter is interesting. I often find myself enthralled by the history that these little artistic artifacts, these coins, represent.

They asked us to set up some Search Ads to present their business to the locals. It’s working out well. Their reputation is building and they now have a steady stream of regulars that come by the shop to see what’s new. The locals on the Hill now know they have a resource they can trust to get fair prices for their coins when they sell an estate or collection from Palos Verdes.

When business slows down, we increase their ad spend to keep a steady stream of customers. When the shop gets busy, we turn down their spend so they don’t get overwhelmed. All of this ensures they provide a high, consistent level of service.

Also, as we have substantial experience at many levels in the numismatics industry, we often consult for them and discuss business ideas. All in all, it’s a great relationship.

Interfanatic Service Focus: Interfanatic Basic Domain Concierge

So you have a business idea, but you’re not sure how to get a domain. We’re experts in buying, selling and procuring domain names. Sometimes customers ask us to pick up a few domains while they consider their options.

The way it works is, of course ‘.com’ domains are still the most desirable. Also, shorter domain names are more in-demand. As such all four-letter .coms are bought. Most of the five-letters are gone, too. As such, even major businesses are settling for non-.coms or longer domain names.

You can set up a subdomain, xxxx.domainname.com, for free if you have that domain. And of course you can your domain length to help customers find the right part of your website. For instance, we often use get.interfanatic.com to direct people to our Get A Quote page. And that page is interfanatic.com/get-a-quote. It’s intuitive and memorable, making it easy for our customers and search engines to find.

A few years ago, a friend of ours came to us with a business idea. He wasn’t sure exactly which direction he wanted to go, so we picked up a few domains for him. One particularly desirable domain had recently come back on the market, so we swooped in and picked it up for him. We also picked up a couple that were slightly less desirable so if he wanted to sell his best domain for a profit, he had that option.

We’ve also negotiated to purchase already-taken domains for customers. And sometimes, companies want a second domain just for their email addresses. We’ve handled all of that, too. We’ve done all manners of domain dealing for clients in our 20 year history.

So if you’re thinking of a business idea, come to us and we’ll take care of you. We’ll get the best domain for you and handle the renewals. That way, if you ever get a suspicious email, you don’t have to worry about it – we take care of that for you. Our service helps our customers rest easy about their most valuable commodities – their domain names.

Endeavour – she represents the courage to continue. After the Challenger debacle, it would have been easy to pack it in. But NASA didn’t. With the help of good people, they were forced to face their complacency. The shuttle program was forced to ask questions it didn’t want to ask. It was forced to look into things for which it didn’t want to see the answer. It took courage, but ask they did. Answer they did. It wasn’t pleasant. With courage, Endeavour was the result. And with it, the shuttle program continued.

Honor: West Coast Jewelers – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

West Coast Jewelers, for our Customer Spotlight on Honor, an Interfanatic Quality

If you honor and serve the people who work for you, they will honor and serve you.

Mary Kay Ash

Another week, another week closer to honorable leadership?

This quote speaks to me because I was raised around this philosophy. I grew up in a family business with thousands of incredibly appreciated workers.

All business must be honorable if it is to survive, thrive, and do well for the community around it.

This week, we’re helping a new business launch. And I guarantee you that in their line of work, they would go nowhere fast were they not honorable.

Honor: An Interfanatic Quality

When you work with honor, people know they can depend on you. Trust comes from doing deals with honor.

There’s no reason to go into business if you refuse to hold your honor and that of your customers in esteem.

Hopefully, that’s why we’re here after over 20 years. We always treat our customers with honor. I know our customers appreciate the work we do.

West Coast Jewelers – Bringing Business with Honor

The cash for gold business is not one known for honor. But Firas Sayegh and his family business are determined to raise the bar on their competition.

“West Coast Jewelers pay for gold like coin dealers pay: the most.”

It’s a difficult thing to open any business. But the thing about West Coast Jewelers is that they have a very clear unique selling proposition. They do custom jewelry for beauty, and also for investment.

Everyone knows that taking scrap gold to a cash for gold place is the best way to lose money. They pay the least – sometimes a criminally small amount – for gold. Jewelers pay the next most, and coin shops pay the most. As West Coast Jewelers works with bullion dealers, they’re almost like a coin dealer who does jewelry. They pay for gold like coin dealers pay.

But the most important thing Firas brings to his business is his honor. And he knows this. You don’t get far in the gold and jewelry business cheating people. Not ever, but especially in the age of social media. Firas Sayegh and West Coast Jewelers are transparent and embrace social media, like so many young entrepreneurs. The people of West Coast Jewelers deal in honor.

I remember watching Steven Tyler talk about the way he wanted to honor his fans. It’s not the same thing as honoring your workers, but it seems like the right message. You have to truly honor your fans with truth, hard work to create excellent results. We got to go see Aerosmith in concert last year in Vegas, and man what a show. It was a wonderful experience, and I felt honored to be there, and honored by the Aerosmith troupe.
