Congratulations Scotty Clause and The Living Christmas Company!

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Our congratulations goes to Scott Martin, aka “Scotty Clause” for all of his hard work beginning to show fruit. His dream of taking The Living Christmas Company national is one giant leap closer to reality after Scott’s appearance on Shark Tank and his success courting Mark Cuban as a business partner and investor.

The Living Christmas Company on Shark Tank

We helped TLCCo get off the ground many years ago, bringing Scott’s vision to reality through our work in the logo and his first operational website. We’re proud of our work (there was a lot of it) and we’re glad to be a part of this magical Christmas success story.

GO SCOTTY GO!

CoinSniper.com Numismatic “Penny Auction” Live

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

It’s a penny Penny Auction live on the Internet.
CoinSniper.com is the first numismatic Penny Auction on the Internet
Right now, there’s a few ways for Coin Collectors (Numismatists) to buy coins. They can go to a coin show and meet their favorite dealers live, they can go to the ever-disappearing local coin shop and pick up what they’re craving, or they can buy coins on-line, through dealer web sites or through on-line numismatic auctions.

The margins are tight for dealers and the market is well-saturated for collectors, so the chances of getting a coin for less than “book” value is slim or none.

Rusty Scropper, proprietor of CoinSniper.com, had the idea to apply the “Penny Auction format” to numismatics to a) make it more fun for collectors and b) allow them to potentially buy coins for less than their normal value with a mix of skill and luck.

Here’s how it works (and you can read about it on the CoinSniper.com site here or watch a video about it here):

Coin buyers buy packs of bids. The bids cost about $1.00 each. When they see a coin they want, they place a bid on it. This increases the cost of the coin $0.01 and adds 10 seconds to the clock to allow any other “CoinSnipers” an opportunity to out-bid. When time runs off the clock, the winner gets the coin shipped to their address for free.

Rusty explains how he came upon the idea: “When I got tired of waiting for the big show to come my way and found all the dealers I like closing up shop, I turned to the Internet, to eBay. I found I had a great time buying coins by ‘sniping’ the auction. I’d put a bid in at the last second and hope it was enough to get the coin I couldn’t live without. With the penny auction format, that whole experience is condensed and magnified.”

Unfortunately, there are some bad players in the penny auction business. “I have no interest in running anything but a completely legitimate, honest business.”

And if you read Scropper’s articles in the CoinSniper.com Numismatic Learning Center, you’ll see he has a lot of experience and great advice he’s willing to freely share with both the experienced and inexperienced numismatist alike.

“Theoretically, this whole thing should be cheap for buyers and over time, I should be able to eek out a small profit.”, says Scropper. “The trick for the buyers is to make sure they win once in a while using a bit of patience. If you watch your competition carefully, you can figure out when to put your bid in. The whole process is a lot more fun.”

The first auctions are set to end on July 4th, 2012, with four coins per day selling until demand requires more. On July 4th alone, there’s well over $100 up for grabs, and since all of the users are new, there’s a good chance that they could win the coins with their free first 25 bids.

We wish Rusty the best of luck with his new venture and the bidders the best of luck winning some great coins. Congrats on your new site, Rusty! It was a lot of work, but we’re all sure it’s going to pay off.

The Summer Pro League announced that presenting sponsor “and1 basketball company” has joined the team.
Southern California Summer Pro League presented by and1
The Summer Pro League has had some very enticing sponsorship positions available, and as the league takes shape for July 2012, one of the best places has been taken.

There are still sponsorship positions available, but And1 has definitely capitalized on a great opportunity.

And1 is a phenomenal business that has recently gone through reinvention. It’s hard to imagine a better way for a company to display its products than to the up-and-coming basketball stars of next year through a partnership with Summer Pro League.

And1, welcome to the team!

CoinSniper.com 3/21 Launches as The Best Place to Learn About Coin Deals Online

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Today, Rusty Scropper, proprietor and Numismatist behind CoinSniper.com launched his new site as a resource for coin collectors on a budget.
CoinSniper.com - The Best Place to Learn About Coin Deals Online
“Eventually, I’d like to run some coin auctions on the site, but for the mean time we’ve got to build traffic.” Rusty’s solution to growing the site is to start with a fantastic grouping of resources for coin collectors. He’s also added a forums section where he’ll scour the Internet for good coin deals and auctions. “I want collectors to associate CoinSniper.com with great deals for coins on the Internet, as that is after all the whole idea.”

In the Numismatic Learning Center, Rusty’s written introductory articles about grading and valuing coins, along with some of the other things that should be of concern to collectors. In the CoinSniper.com Forums, there are current listings of coin deals he’s found, and the Coin Auction listing is probably the most complete listing of Internet Auctions selling coins anywhere online. Rusty and CoinSniper.com have no affiliations with any other dealers or auction houses, so these listings are the best he can find.

Rusty will be updating CoinSniper’s facebook page with Numismatic News in an attempt to spur discussion. He’s tweeting away at @CoinSniper also, sharing deals and news for collectors to find.

Congrats on a fantastic site, Rusty! We hope you can start selling coins profitably soon!
