JUST TYPE IN "COIN SHOWS" AND SEE!
When I started this website in June 1996, I put up thousands of Coin Shows for FREE. I found I was spending up to 100 hours each month designing custom webpages, entering information and keeping the website up-to-date. So, I began charging a small fee for providing this valuable service. This fee is well within the budget of any Coin Show promoter or Coin Club Show.
Unfortunately, money does not grow on trees.
WHAT DO PROMOTERS GET?
You get a custom webpage with all the information on your Coin Show which is hotlinked from your state's Coin Shows Calendar. The website is viewed by thousands of potential customers and dealers each month, thereby increasing the attendance at your show. Any last minute changes can be updated very quickly at no extra charge.
The cost of advertising on www.coinshows.com is very reasonable at $10 per show day. This low rate means placing the URL (example below for Anytown Coin Club) on all the printed advertising for your Coin Show, including posters, flyers, postcards etc. A copy of your mailout (e.g. postcard) for each show should be sent to the address below for verification.
All lower case letters are used (NO CAPITAL letters).
Without the URL (example above) on all the printed advertising for your show, the rate is $11 per show day.
COIN and STAMP and POSTCARD SHOWS
If your Coin Show also has Stamp Dealers, you can have the same webpage put up at www.stampshows.com (which we also own). Just add 75% to the total rate for your www.coinshows.com webpage.
If your Coin Show also has Postcard Dealers, you can have the same webpage put up at www.postcard-shows.com (which we also own). Just add 75% to the total rate for your www.coinshows.com webpage.
REGULAR COIN SHOWS
Say you have 4 similar Coin Shows planned for this year.
This is how it will look in your state/province's Coin Show calendar.
March 9. Anytown. State Coin Expo.
May 11. Anytown. State Coin Expo.
August 10. Anytown. State Coin Expo.
November 9. Anytown. State Coin Expo.
Clicking on the first show - March 9 (this example is not hotlinked)
will bring up your show's custom webpage with all the information on
it. The other 3 shows are in italics as they are the same as the first
show - just the date has changed.
On approximately March 10, the March 9 show would be removed and the May 11 show would be hotlinked. Also, the webpage would be changed to reflect the new date.
You may pay by Check, Money-Order, Cash (U.S. Dollars only) or Credit Card.
CREDIT CARDS - American Express, Discover, Mastercard & Visa are accepted directly. Just send card number, expiration date, name on the card, billing address (including zip code) and phone number.
I am currently traveling and would prefer you use a Credit Card, instead of a check or money order. Thank you.
Updates to webpages are done regularly. Emails are checked at least twice a day. Webpages can be changed at any time to reflect new information, at no extra charge.
SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DO I GET FOR $10 ?
You get a listing in your state coin shows calendar with a link to your very own customized webpage. This webpage will contain all the information on your Coin Show. It can also include a map, a picture of any medal or coin to be issued at the the event etc. There is no limit to the amount of information that you provide, as long as it is relevant to the Coin Show. If you have your own website a link will be provided directly from your web page, plus coinshows.com Coin Yellow Pages Directory.
HOW LONG CAN I KEEP MY SHOW ON www.coinshows.com ?
As long as you want to - up to one year - longer for international shows.
CAN I GET A WEBPAGE FOR MY SHOW RIGHT AWAY ?
Yes, just e-mail me with the information and I will put up a custom webpage for your show right away (usually within 24 hours or less) without waiting for your payment which you should mail to me at your earliest convenience (see address above).
WHAT IF I HAVE TO MAKE SOME LAST MINUTE CHANGES ?
No problem, just e-mail me with the information and I will put it up for you - usually the same day. There is no extra charge for any updates.
SHOULD I STOP ADVERTISING IN THE PRINTED COIN MEDIA ?
Absolutely not. This website should be seen as a valuable addition to the printed coin media. The more you spread around your advertising, the better.
WHAT IF I DON'T PAY FOR A COIN SHOW AD AT www.coinshows.com, WILL IT STILL BE LISTED ?
Yes, even if you decide your coin show is not worth $9 to reach tens of thousands of potential customers, your coin show will still be listed, but only in your state calendar section and without a specific date or contact information. No customized web page. Here is how such non-paying shows would be listed.
Summer. Yourtown. 6th Annual Coin Show.
Fall. Anytown. Semi-Annual Coin & Stamp Show.
YES, BUT OTHER WEBSITES HAVE SIMILAR INFORMATION.
I know there are other websites giving out Coin Show information. Most of them have very few shows. Also, can you remember their website's name? This website's name is easy for everyone to remember. When a coin collector or dealer is looking for a Coin Show on the web, what is easier to remember than coinshows.com?
We are number one at Google.com. Just type in "Coin Shows" and see for yourself.
Thank-you and good luck with your coin show(s)
