  • Decide how many guests 
  • Encourage bidders to "go in together" to purchase
  • Take a picture of the theme and post it on the online auction so the "flavor" of the event will be seen

Auction Theme


The best auctions have a great theme. 


Now, this doesn't mean you have to have balloons or matching clothes, but it does mean you need a cohesive auction theme to make sure your live auction can be fun and get your organization the most money.  What does having a theme entail?


An overarching auction theme can really add to the ambiance of your event.  In order to choose a theme, you must first look at the people who will be coming to the event. 


You wouldn't want to have a luxurious champagne brunch for families, but you might want to have that type of event for a women's organization.  Knowing who will be invited to your event will allow you to tailor an auction theme the guests will enjoy.








 


What Others

Are Saying!


"Benefit Bidding provided excellent customer service for the development of the auction and support once the auction went live. We raised more money than we had anticipated and our supporters tell us that it was overall a fun experience. We plan to do more auctions using their services and recommend them highly."
