A Benefit Auctioneer?

As owner and auctioneer of Walker Benefit Auctions I receive  steady streams of questions asking about the effects this troubled  economy is having on  benefit auctions.   Several of my clients are even wondering if they should spend time and effort on a gala. The answer to that question is YES.  Our company was doing auctions during the last recession and some of our more profitable events today continued through those tough times.  For this year’s event you may want to take a step back and look to see if there are any changes that need to be made in your auction. The excitement level needs to be  high and an atmosphere of spending should be felt in the room.  A benefit auctioneer can make the difference in creating that atmosphere.   The advice of a benefit auctioneer gives  can take you in the right direction and help achieve dollars in new and unusual ways.  You may  think that hiring a benefit auctioneer is too expensive, however, it has been proven that hiring an auctioneer adds to your bottom line, not take away from it.  Walker Benefit Auctions has the opportunity to do large and small auctions throughout the United States and Canada.  We have learned much from these events  from various areas of the country and are eager to share new ideas with our clients.  An auctioneer with specialized training in the area of benefit auctions  will help produce results that will not only raise you more dollars but will share ideas that will help in the transition and growth of your event. As you are thinking about your auction during these challenging times,  look at every aspect and take note of previous events to determine what is profitable and what is not.  Be creative and do things that will make your audience comfortable and happy.  A happy bidder will bid more than once and that is what generates a successful event.  If you have questions or need new ideas check with Walker Benefit  Auctions.
