FABulous Benefit Auction Marketing Tips
Laser marketing your charity auction is one of my favorite topics; here are some great marketing ideas for both nonprofits and benefit auctioneers alike.
First, I would like to underscore a powerful new marketing technique - that is unfortunately sometimes overlooked in promoting your fundraising auction. It’s vital to pre-promote both your benefit auction event AND to pre-promote your auction items. In this new economy, potential auction guests, sponsors and donors are much more strategic in how they think and how they act at fundraising auction events. Read more benefit auction marketing tips to leverage these trends... or you can listen to my Podcast.
