Sincerity: Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, Customer Spotlight on Sincerity, an Interfanatic Quality

Sincere deeds invite new friends.”

Toba Beta

Sincerity, according to Beta, is an invitation. Truthfully, the opposite can be, also. But sincerity isn’t questionable, as levity might be. Sincerity is always a foot forward, a gesture of love and kindness.

Sincerity is always a way forward. When people observe sincere deeds, they want more.

Sincerity is the Interfanatic quality we celebrate this week. During a nervous time, sincerity and honesty are a welcome respite. And we welcome new friends with our sincerity.

Sincerity: An Interfanatic Quality

Sincerity builds trust. Trust builds relationships. Relationships are the foundation of business. In that way, sincerity is the foundation of all business.

Without sincerity nor trust, businesses cannot feel secure working with other businesses. Sincerity is the bedrock of B2B relationships.

Which is why, as we celebrate sincerity, we also celebrate the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. It is a small but mighty group, all working extremely hard for their member businesses in Southern California.

When you talk to the folks at the PVP Chamber, there is no doubt they’re thinking of you and working to promote your best interest in all they do.

They’re sincere.

Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce: Building Relationships on Sincerity

The staff of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber take their task seriously. They know they exist for the will of their members. The Palos Verdes Peninsula is a small but tight community. The Chamber supports their community and businesses with a one-on-one partnership you don’t normally see from a Chamber in Commerce.

As soon as businesses were told to close their doors, the Chamber stepped up, immediately providing distance networking opportunities. They shifted gears the way only a small and focused organization could.

“Sincerity is the bedrock of B2B relationships.”

And this behavior, this fervor, all comes from sincerity to do what’s right for its members.

When you’re interested in checking out a business in Palos Verdes, on the Peninsula (on the Hill, as it is known colloquially), call the Chamber to see if they’re a member. If they are, get the Chamber’s opinion on the business. If they’re not a member, it might be better to find a business that is.

Social Media Marketing with Interfanatic: Building a Solid Interface to the Community

Last year, Interfanatic partnered with the PVP Chamber to handle the social media aspects of Chamber outreach. We handled the live posting from the PVP Chamber’s PV Street Fair, and then continued with a Social Media program for the Chamber.

The results were astonishing. The Chamber was able to grow some of its Social Media Channels incredibly in just a short period of time. The community learned more about member businesses and Chamber activities, and the collaboration was incredibly successful.

Social Media is a crucial part of outreach and customer service in 2020. During this time of COVID-19 social distancing, there will be no PV Street Fair, but rest assured if you need to find out about your local Palos Verdes business community, the PVP Chamber knows what’s happening.

Interfanatic & Sincerity

As we said before, without sincerity nor trust, businesses cannot feel secure working with other businesses. A sincere demeanor is the bedrock of B2B relationships. Perhaps that’s why we’re proud to have great relationships with many businesses spanning multiple decades.

We do what’s right for our customers. You can take that to the bank.

Ah, a real photograph. It was a beautiful but ominous day. My wife and I were out for a walk on one of the last days the Esplanade was open. We were already social distancing, but I took the opportunity to grab some photographs before going indoors for a lengthy period.

Closetlook : Interfanatic Customer Spotlight on Beauty

“You will love beauty, which is the shadow of God on the Universe.”

Gabriela Mistral

The great Nobel Laureate relays instructions given to her in a vision, and creates poetry.

Beauty: the Shadow of God on the Universe

What a beautiful sentiment.

Beauty, like all virtues, comes in different volumes. For some, it is naturally apparent, but for others it must be enacted. But it is universally appreciated.

Finding Beauty or Creating Beauty

As Michelangelo said, the beauty is there, you just have to chip away to find it. So it is in business. It is there, we must find it and expose it to our customers.

Edenia Lima of ClosetLook uses her natural beauty to showcase the beauty of others – of their products.

Everyone gives influencers a hard time, but that’s mostly because many behave entitled. Properly influencing for a brand takes leardership, coordination, and hard work. A campaign can take weeks or months to build, even though it looks spontaneous and easy. It looks easy because experts are coordinated to work together to make sure it looks easy.

Edenia Lima works extremely hard to make sure the brand comes off in a positive light, and to make sure they get what they’re paying for. She uses her own vision and brand to bring products, fashion, and trends into a beautiful light.

It is our pleasure to work with Lima to showcase her work and help her achieve her vision. Her brands are grateful for her efforts too, as they keep coming back to engage more of her influence.

Honor: Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce & Social Media Marketing – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Interfanatic Customer Spotlight: Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce - Honor

Calvin Coolidge, who succeeded Harding as President after Warren G.’s untimely demise, reminds us of an axiom of honor. (I had wanted some juicy Worf quote from Star Trek, but decided on the POTUS30 instead).

That is:

Honor is bestowed for acts done unto others.

It’s something always on our minds here at Interfanatic. We wish to honor our customers. We don’t have to work with anyone; we’re blessed in that. So we get to choose the best and work with them.

Which is why I think of the PV Chamber. Like us, they honor their customers with hard work, ingenuity, and advocacy.

When WSmad joined the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce over a decade ago, and it wasn’t the same as it is now. Now the PVP Chamber, under new leadership, is vital, active, and an even bigger proponent for businesses working in and on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

They’re hustlers, in the absolute best sense of the term. Eileen’s team works extremely hard. But they’re not hustling for themselves. They hustle for their customers – for their constituents.

Much of what they do happens behind the scenes. But much of what they do is visible and felt all over the Hill. They’re advocates for the businesses who work with them. They’re connectors. And they wish to bring great business to Palos Verdes, and make sure the local residents know of all the good going on in their neighborhoods.

Recently, Interfanatic got to handle some social media marketing for the Palos Verdes Chamber through their PV Street Fair. It was an incredible event, and proved a microcosm of how effective the PVP Chamber has become. We had a lot of fun, and we’re proud that we got to sponsor the event.

… they wish to bring great business to Palos Verdes, and make sure the local residents know of all the good going on in their neighborhoods.

But it all comes back to honor. As we were honored to work with the PVP Chamber, the PV Chamber honors its constituents with work and dedication.

And what more could you ask from a Chamber – or any business – than for them to work hard and produce results for you? What greater honor could be given you?
