A Whopping 98% of the People Who Attended This Webinar Rated It As Great to Excellent!
A survey conducted a few years ago revealed that benefit auctions offered such reliable income that fewer than 1% of development directors would discontinue the event after launching it. That said, national averages of silent auction returns aren’t that strong ... a 50% -60% return is typical.
What if your returns could be pushed to 70%, 80% or higher? What if every attendee could be persuaded to donate an additional $20 they hadn’t intended to give? Incremental gains can often make a BIG difference in the bottom line of your event.
In this 90-minute webinar overflowing with photos from profitable (and not-so-profitable) fundraising auctions, you’ll come to understand why your silent auction is soaring or sinking.
Dig out your sale numbers from last year because as this webinar rolls along, you’ll want to have last year’s results handy to immediately apply what you’re learning.
