Planning charity auctions takes a lot of work. Months before your event, your planning committee starts thinking about auction items—where to find them, what to include, how to set initial price points… If you’re putting in all of that time, you want to see the best possible return, right?
So, how do you make charity auctions profitable?
Surprisingly, the quality of your auction items is only the start. In today’s visually-driven culture, the way you present your auction items matters as much—or more—than what you’re offering. To get the most profit from your auctions, you need to think about merchandising.
