Make BIG Money with Auctions

Auctions are REALLY BIG MONEY if Done Properly

Auctions go really well with golf tournaments. If you are wondering how some golf tournaments are raising thousands of dollars, most likely it is because they have an auction or two (silent and/or live).  Auctions are big money makers as they give the players an opportunity to shop. Men historically don’t like to shop like women do, but at a golf tournament they can buy things like sports memorabilia that they would normally not buy.
 

THE KEYS TO SUCCESS

So how do we raise the big money with auctions? Here are just a few ideas that can help.
 
DO NOT:
  1. Auction off small items that are not exciting.
  2. Start late.
  3. Forget to promote your auction/s.
 
WHAT TO DO
  1. Make your auction/s a priority.
  2. Have a separate committee for your auction/s.
  3. Start early.
