Imagine being so confident with the idea of asking for donations that your little team was EAGER TO ASK.
Can you envision how would your auction change? More donations … cash gifts … people to attend. Wow!
Auctions begin with a confident ask.
Given that so much is riding on your “asking prowess,” I’m interviewing a guru on the subject, Marc Pitman. He’s written several books and conducts many trainings based on his Ask Without Fear® program.
In this complementary call, Marc is going to share how to improve your ask. 🙂
Auction newbies will be empowered; you experts in asking will benefit from real-life tips. And everyone will enjoy Marc’s energy; he’s got as much energy as I do!
What you’ll learn:
As Auction Chair, you’ll spend time asking for any number of things. Marc’s expertise is in asking for major gifts, which some fundraisers believe is the hardest ask. I’ll be interviewing him about his process and relating it to an auction.
- You’ll learn the basic process for getting started with an ask: Get REAL
- Actual language / phrasing to use when asking
- How to confidently close the conversation, even when the prospect has objections
- What to do prior to your ask in order to calm your nerves.

Definitely good stuff! My favorite take away was during the ‘asking’ segment when he offered the idea of saying, “May I share this opportunity with you now, or should I follow up?”
It was all informative though! So glad I found you and Red Apple Auctions!
I wanted to let you know that Sam attended this seminar on Monday and loved it. Even more fantastic, she used a couple of her key learnings in her sales presentation to our corporate fundraising committee the following morning. Her enthusiasm for these two new tools was clear and quickly engaged the committee as well.
Thank you for making this kind of employee development available – it has real-life value.
That was a great call. Very educational.
Thank you very much. I’m glad the recording came through and even more that you included all the products and links referred to during the call.
You are so helpful! God bless you!
