Save the Date-Auction 101: Top Ten Ways to Make Your Next Auction More Successful

Beth Sandefur Events presents, in conjunction with Greater Giving, Stellar Fundraising Auctions, and Sound Expressions, The Top 10 Ways to Make Your Next Auction More Successful. An interactive workshop designed to give your auction team useful tools to help with your next fundraising event.

The workshop will take place from 9am – 3pm on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 at the David Brower Center in Berkeley. Online registration will be available through Greater Giving at a later date.

Whether your event is in two weeks or twenty, this highly interactive workshop will provide you with proven strategies that will help you maximize the philanthropic potential of your crowd.

Session topics will include:

  • Fine tuning your fund-a-need pitch
  • Finding hidden lessons in your auction data
  • Brainstorming ways to enhance your auction lots
  • Messaging: sell the cause, not the party
  • Streamlining check-in and check-out
  • Making your auction sound great

We will also offer a hands-on mobile session for organizations looking for information about the most buzzed about trend in events: going mobile. This workshop session will include an overview of Greater Giving’s Mobile Bidding and Storefront functions. We’ll discuss how mobile bidding impacts your event and how you can incorporate raffle and other multi-item sales into your event using storefront.

The day will conclude with expert roundtables: one hour filled with small group sessions with each member of our expert panel. We will break into groups by organization type, and spend an hour drilling down on the topics that matter to you most. This is the chance for you to ask questions and get answers that are relevant to the needs of your specific event with experts in the field of fundraising auction planning, implementation and performance.

Save the date for Wednesday, January 28th, 2015, and stay tuned for more information on registration.
