Do You Want To Raise More Money?

Do you want to raise more money in your live and silent auctions?

Well, of course you do... who would ever say they didn’t want their auction to raise more?

The REAL question is — HOW do you raise more money?? 

There are countless benefit auction tactics and strategies out there, so where do you start?  Where do you focus your time?

Do you focus more on the Live Auction or the Silent?

Are you procuring the right auction items and the right number of items?

Should you include Mobile Bidding?

Revenue Generators? Which ones?

 

Should you include the biggest benefit auction moneymaker of them all...

The reality is that you will NEVER be able to implement EVERY strategy well.

Even we don’t focus on everything. Why? Because that’s practically impossible.

But we’re still able to get amazing results because we’ve figured out the handful of tactics that actually inspire donors to stretch every gift they make.

Just take a look at this example of one client’s two-year auction growth...

Their charity auction had never grossed more than $30K.

We helped them grow from $30,000 to $285,000.

YES – That’s right, we increased their auction revenue by 950% in two years without increasing the number of items in their auctionIn fact, we reduced the number of items in both their Live and Silent Auctions.

On top of that, consider that we made it happen by implementing just one powerful tactic that has increased annual revenue for 100% of our clients, and it works for organizations at every level...

De La Salle’s auction was stuck at $200K for years.

We helped them grow from $200,000 to $785,000.

Not only were we able to increase their annual revenue by $585,000 using this one amazing auction tactic, but these organizations also learned how to keep building on their growth and momentum year after year.

We know our stuff. Nobody can magic up money. We’ve just learned what works.

Even with some of the toughest crowds, we are able to find unique advantages and raise incredible profits. And we’ve done the same for tons of nonprofits, schools, and foundations.

“Kelly and her team are a joy to work with. Their knowledge and resources helped streamline our efforts and carry us to success. We exceeded our fundraising goal by 40%.

Kathryn Foubister

Just like the results for these organizations, the ONE THING we’ve mastered is driving up revenue at any fundraising event.

 

We’ve gotten so good at helping nonprofits and schools raise incredible money that charitable organizations are having to compete to lock in our services for their chosen dates before anyone else.

 

And we generally book 12 months in advance.

So the question isn’t if we can grow your revenue or design your auction to be 100% profit...

 

The question is whether or not we’ll be a good fit for working together...

Over the last 500 benefit auctions, we’ve learned that the groups we can help raise the most money are the ones who are ready to say YES to our auction leadership.

 

To get the results you want, your board and committee must be willing (and hopefully excited!) to let go of any old thinking that has been limiting your fundraising potential.

 

If their favorite excuse for holding onto outdated strategies is, “but we’ve always done it this way,” it’s probably time for a heart-to-heart about how to achieve your funding goals.

At Artisan Auctions, we focus on what we’re good at: driving up auction revenue.

SO – if you want to work with us and grow your auction profits, keep reading...

Step 1

Do This Now

We’ve got a brief series of questions you’ll need to answer about your organization.

Nothing too crazy, we just need the basics about what your goals are, when and where your benefit auction will be (if you already know), your planned number of attendees, etc. That way we can understand your situation before we talk and get right down to business.

Answer these questions as accurately as possible and be absolutely sure your contact information is correct so we can reach you.

Step 2

Here’s What Will Happen Next

 

 

Once you’ve filled out the questionnaire, someone from our team will call you to speak more about your auction and gather more information so we can accurately plan out how to grow your revenue.

It’s important that you answer the questionnaire thoroughly because if you don’t, our analysis of your organization  will be off, which means we won’t get a clear picture of the best way to drive up your auction profits.

You will hear from us within 1 business day after submitting your information.

Your initial call will be between 30 and 45 minutes. This is where we really begin working to figure out exactly what you need and how to make it all happen.

 

At that point, if you see the value in working together, great! We’ll talk and see if we’re able to take you on as a client.

If you decide you don’t want to move forward, that’s okay too.

Worst case you will have received some free advice from our team which will help you generate more revenue.

Ultimately, this is for people who take action and know a good opportunity when they see it.

If that’s you, then today is the day you start taking your annual revenue to the next level.
