Bloomerang hosted me on a complementary 1-hour training where I taught five simple ways to boost silent auction revenue. This free webinar got a lot of “thumbs up” in emails and Facebook. (Scroll to read the unsolicited reviews.)
This covers the basics …THE BASICS … of silent auction marketing. If you aren’t doing these five things, I’m way concerned that you are missing out on a lot more. So first, watch the video. Then click to Silent Auction Marketing Savvy to get the FULL STORY on how to ramp up your silent auction.
Pour yourself a coffee, grab a pen, and settle in to take notes.
Thanks Steve – got some great ideas and certainly motivational – thanks so much for hosting the webinars.
I just wanted to let you know that this afternoon’s webinar was fantastic- a lot of helpful tips and information.
Had to leave webinar early. Thanks for making the webinar available so I can review later. LOVED the content I was able to listen to. Loved the presenter as well. One of the best I’ve heard on a webinar! The addition of seeing her on video was helpful. One of the many questions I have is how do I help a board member understand that his donation of treasures is not what our guests are looking for in the silent auction. He was offended that the items he donated last year received donations way below their value. I also feel bad that they didn’t do well and would rather we use an auction site or some other means to get a meaningful donation for the items. Thoughts?
Thanks, Steven. Took copious notes and will talk about them at our next “Winetasia” meeting.
I wanted to thank you for todays webinar. It was very informative and perfect timing for our annual Gala event. My director and I gleaned from this webinar several valuable changes that we will be sure to use this year for a better outcome.
That was informative. Reinforced some things, clarified others, gave me some new ideas. And gave me a clear path to prioritizing the key elements when planning not only a silent auction, but the whole thing.
I was so inspired by Sherry – I spent most of my afternoon reading the materials on the Red Apple web site – good work. Thank you.
We enjoyed Sherry’s webinar immensely! Thank you so much for sending us the link.
I presented this webinar on 4Good a couple weeks later. Here’s what attendees said:
- We are having our auction in 2 weeks and will use all your ideas.
- One of the best webinars I have participated in! My event is in a few short weeks and I will definitely put some of these ideas to use.
- Excellent! The hour went by too fast.
- The webinar was very good. I was taking notes; maybe more information could go in the slides.
- She was wonderful.
- Really amazing and informative. Looking forward to looking at the website to learn even more!
