Auctions

Jacque emailed me last week about a company who helps non profits conduct auctions on line to save the time and effort of organizing and distributing items for live in person auctions.

They have been doing this for 8 years now and I was impressed that they called within 48 hours of filling out the information on their website. I’m always impressed the simple things like good business practices.

So far the company has conducted over 12,000 auctions and have more than 120 auctions scheduled currently. They have a database of 225,000 bidders and they notify their database when there is going to be an auction.

They can even pull of the auction in 30 days with the assistance of the non profit using their database and individual supporters to

drive traffic and support the event.

They provide a check list and a proven system to make sure the auction is successful.

So the system is viable.

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
