For the past two years, with the cancellation of live events, the convenience, versatility, and advanced features offered by MobilBid have helped make it the go-to platform for virtual and hybrid charity silent auctions. Lately, we’ve discovered that many of our newer clients and prospects don’t associate MobilBid with in-person fundraising events.
We offer a brief refresher.
MobilBid was designed specifically for in-person events. We listened carefully to our experienced fundraiser advisors. As a result, we included features such as leaderboards projected on a large screen with or without sponsor recognition, instant out-bid alerts, easy sign-in, assisted bidding when requested. We now offer a new a new feature. The convenience of printing item information sheets to be displayed with the auction items on display.
Combining these features with the ease of smartphone bidding, quick response to outbid alerts, and the convenience of lineup-free closing. Invoices are generated automatically when the auction closes, and winning bidders can pay from their phones. Bidders who prefer, can participate using a computer.
An advanced option requests credit card information as bidders place their first bid. Upon close, the cards of successful bidders are processed automatically, and they are sent a receipt used to claim their item. Presto no lineup.
As well, many fundraisers are now opening their live auction events to a wider audience. Combining a live event with a virtual event means attracting more participants, increased bidding, and better results. Enjoying the best…and the rewards of both worlds.
