This month Brisbane Lions ran their second annual fundraiser with GalaBid and once again smashed the results with well over 2000 bids passing through the platform!
Here's what they had to say about their experience moving across from handset bidding to GalaBid.
"We have used GalaBid for two years now as the bidding system for our major fundraiser of the year Ã¤Ã³Ã± our Gala Auction. The process from start to finish is simple to use. From the set up with upload of items and logos, to ease of use on the night and a seamless payment and collection process.
I would not hesitate in recommending the system to any organisation that wants to get great silent auction results with an affordable, uncomplicated system.”
GalaBid is proud to work with several AFL and NRL clubs and it's great to see the results paying off. There's definitely a great harmony between mobile bidding and sports club supporters Ã¤Ã³Ã± they love the fun and competitive element that the mobiles create.
Another great thing we've noticed with sports clubs (and also charities) is they have national and international supporters that can still take part in the auction. Several of the clubs and charities we work with now send out their auction link to their entire supporter database allowing everyone to take part and more revenue to be achieved.
We've had bids from the UK, USA, Ireland and Singapore! This is also a great marketing tool reminding people far and wide who you are and what you are trying to achieve!
Think about how you could utilise this feature for your own fundraising efforts Ã¤Ã³Ã± it's hard to always get every single key supporter in a room on a set date so how can you still keep them involved? We'll talk more about this in the coming weeks on our blog.
