Live Auction Ideas

Inevitably live auctions rely on a good auctioneer but there are a number of ways that the Givergy technology can assist:

  • Use our Client Management System to generate reports for the live auction winning bidders

Live Auction Tips

We have seen a few live auctions in our time so here are 3 quick tips to help you get the most out of yours:

  • Limit the number of items to between 4 and 6 – any more and it will drag on too long;
  • Gauge the money in the room carefully – no one likes an awkward moment when the auctioneer has to drop the start bid; and
  • Get the right auctioneer – unfortunately in many cases it is a case of you pay for what you get!
"We can't recommend Givergy highly enough. We were incredibly impressed with both the software and the team, and are so happy we chose Givergy to take part in our major Gala event of the year. 10/10!"
"The Givergy Team were great to work with and helped to make our fundraiser a huge success."
“Givergy are incredibly experienced and know what they are doing. I trust them completely to run our silent auctions and interactive pledging, it’s definitely one thing about my events that doesn't keep me up at night.”
"We are really grateful to the Givergy Team for their expert contribution to our Ball. They are all friendly, helpful and very professional and the Givergy electronic bidding system made a tremendous contribution to the success of our Ball and the funds we raised for MS research. We could not be more grateful."
Thank you so much for your wonderful assistance and support to make this our best Gala Ball ever. We raised more than we anticipated and guests loved using your system. Your team were so helpful and professional in the lead up and after the event. I look forward to recommending Givergy to any organisation looking to raise money!
