DEFINE WHAT DRIVES YOUR DONORS

Imagine being 100% certain that your donors will pay big bucks for every item you procure.

When you understand what your numbers are really telling you, it puts you at a distinct advantage. Donor Insights let you be more proactive with all of your auction planning, so your staff and volunteers can focus their time and effort where it will make the biggest impact on your bottom line.

Donor Insights are the touchstone for every decision we’ll make together, because time is money.

HELP EVERY GUEST FEEL WELCOME

Artisan Auctions embraces differences in people, perspectives, cultures, skin color, language, age, mobility, intellectual development, sexual orientation, and gender.

So when it comes to choosing how to address any crowd, we always stick to neutral language that includes everyone. For example, we choose to say “Folks” rather than “Ladies and Gentlemen” or “you guys.” Plus, we fine tune your Live Program to accommodate mobility needs, language barriers, and all other differences.

Inclusive language and mindful scripting allow every guest to feel safe, respected, engaged, motivated, and valued for exactly who they are.
