Qtego can help you:
Streamline Event Check-In
Ideally, your event captures the hearts and imaginations of your guests. But when they’re stuck in a registration bottleneck, getting up to leave your presentation to check on an auction item, distracted by reams of paper item descriptions, or frustrated by long check-out lines, how can they catch your vision?
At Qtego, we work hard to eliminate bottlenecks so your guests stay happy and have plenty of time to bid, donate, and interact with your cause. Qtego prompts guests to register for your fundraising event in advance using their mobile devices, so arrival is a quick walk rather than a long, frustrating line.
Make Your Silent Auction Sing
Take your silent auction from ordinary to extraordinary with Qtego’s auction technology and in-depth resources. Time and again, at fundraising events across the country of all types and sizes, what we’ve observed about effective silent auctions is merchandizing. The way you display and describe your auction items truly makes the difference between average returns and outstanding results.
Get detailed advice and tips for effective auction item merchandizing.
Based on years of experience at fundraising events around the country, our team compiled a manual of best practices for setting up silent and live auctions for success.
Make Your Live Auction Unique
Qtego dramatically streamlines your live auction. Our team serves as spotters to help the auctioneer—it’s easy to see us in our bright orange shirts! When the auctioneer announces an item has sold, a Qtego rep tracks the winning bid. Then, when the winner is ready to go, he or she can pay via our convenient checkout.
QSite drives your silent auction, live auction, donations, and Instabuys.
Qtego gives you online bidding without a download. Your event’s custom QSite works with any internet-enabled device—including smartphones—so guests won’t need to get an app to participate.
QSite customization fits every event. We start with a personalized welcome message and branded colors and icons, and add in table numbers and bidder numbers, too, if you’re using them. Activate easy-to-navigate tabs for the silent auction, live auction, donations, Instabuys, voting, and no bid items. Tabs only appear if you’re running that type of activity, so you get a customized look for each event.
QSite’s clean, simple design makes it easy for guests to use. We designed QSite so guests don’t have to make many clicks to spend money. And it’s easy and fun to use throughout your event.
Both registered and unregistered viewers can see your items and bid amounts on QLink—even if they aren’t attending your event—encouraging more registrations as viewers get excited about your auction. Guests use your QLink to pre-register for bidding and to view your items before the auction. At the event, registered guests will bid through your QSite.
With Qtego’s mobile bidding, guests can:
Keep Track of the Big Picture
During your event, Qtego makes it easy to monitor how things are going and make data-driven decisions. With QView, you’ll get a streamlined, mobile-friendly interface that gives you instant access to information like guest check-in, auction activity, donation totals, and more.
With QView, there’s no need to chase down staff, review print-outs, or make decisions in a vacuum in the midst of the programming. QView keeps you on top of your event, and free to enjoy it.
