To host an online auction, you’ll need just a couple of things to get started. First, have items to auction! Reach out to sponsors and donors, post on social media, and use your connections to put together a great line-up for the auction.
Second, you’ll need an online space to hold your auction. BirdEase has a built in silent auction feature that thousands have used for their auctions! It’s easy to set up, you’ll have the opportunity to take additional donations, create a great looking home for your event, and be able to take payments from the winners right online.
Third, you’ll need a time frame for your auction. Host the auction for a day, a week, a month. Pro-tip: If there is a larger event that will be taking place, us an online auction to ramp up excitement for it!
Lastly, you’ll need participants. If BirdEase is your online auction system of choice, you’ll be able to easily share and promote your auction throughout all social media platforms.
