Trips and vacations are often strong sellers in a fundraising auction. To push higher sales and get even more guests to bid, I try to make a vacation sound approachable to anyone sitting in the room.
Two ways I do this are:
1) sharing how to get to the destination, and
2) providing other tidbits about the area, hoping to intrigue a guest to bid.
Committees can also share this type of information, plus they can add maps to slideshows and online auction sites to help guests place a location visually.
In the video, you’ll hear how I incorporate this data into my presentation, with the goal that it tempts a gala gust to join the action, or bid more than they intended.
