The Fine Art of Benefit Auctioneering
Savvy nonprofits, auction-goers, fundraisers and charity event planners know firsthand the myriad of reasons to employ specialized, professional Benefit Auction Specialists. When the goal is to raise critical funds, you need a fundraising specialist – not a well-intentioned volunteer. There’s a vast difference between the pros who will help you realize and surpass fundraising goals and the well-meaning volunteers who won’t.
What’s the Difference?
Nonprofits seeking to raise real money need a pro who will clearly identify their organization’s goals, review historical data and recommend strategies to exceed goals. They need one who is up-to-date on market trends, best practices, and what comprises fabulous live event content. Finally, they need one who has personal relationships with donors and can roll with the punches onstage, encourage fun, speak mission-specific language eloquently and make each donor feel important, included and inspired to give.
Have you ever attended a benefit auction where the auctioneer spoke so fast that they were unintelligible and impossible to follow? Maybe they mispronounced names. Not great to listen to, was it? On the other hand, our Benefit Auction Specialistsuse a slower, more conversational chant that keeps your audience engaged and a part of the action. They craft and pore over event scripts, preemptively minimizing the chances of making mistakes onstage. This leads to more generous giving. Audiences who feel left out are not generous ones. And benefit auction specialists look the part and deliver the kind of show you’ve envisioned.
