How to Plan, Execute and Manage a Successful Online Auction

Online auctions are similar to real-life auctions, except that in the online version everything is done through the web. Instead of travelling to a gallery or an event venue, potential bidders browse webpages to see pictures, descriptions, and suggested prices for the items being auctioned in the comfort and convenience of their own home or office 24/7 during the duration of the auction. If you're familiar with eBay, then you'll already know the way that online auctions work. Some nonprofits design their online auction as an ongoing fundraising opportunity and auction off several items every day or every month. Others design them as an online event that takes place over a specific week or two, with extensive outreach and marketing. This webinar will walk you step-by-step through the tips, tools and techniques you'll need to hold a successful online auction even if you have limited resources and no technical expertise. 

You'll learn to:

  • Determine the best vendor for your auction
  • Solicit the most attractive auction items from sponsors and supporters
  • Set advantageous minimum and maximum bids
  • Expand the auction's reach beyond your supporters
  • Engage bidders with rare items and experiences
  • and much more...
