Online Auction FAQs
Answering Your Questions About Online Auctions
Online auctions are a great way to take your auction company to the next level! It’s normal that you will have some questions about online auctions and how they can best help your company. So, we are diving into some online auction FAQs to help clear things up!
1. Will It Really Help My Auctions?
YES! The biggest reason that online auctions can help your company is because it allows you to have a much larger bidder pool! That sound great doesn’t it? Because your auction is online, bidders don’t have to be in your location to easily attend. In fact, they could be from several states away! And because they can set a maximum bid, they don’t have to worry about even being at their computer during the auctions! More bidders mean more bids, more bids means more competition, more competition means higher final bids! Which is a huge win for your company and your sellers!
2. Will Bidders Still Be Able To Find My Auctions?
Again, YES! While it may sound like a big switch to go from live to online, your bidders will quickly catch on. You may want to put a little more advertising behind your auctions to make sure that bidders are properly informed, but there is no reason that they won’t be able to find your auction. Make sure to post about it on your social media, include helpful information in your newsletter, and highlight it on your website.
3. Is It Hard To Manage An Online Auction?
