Online Webcasting of Auctions Leads to Higher Prices
More and more auctioneers are finding that offering live online webcasts for auctions has the power to bring more bids and higher prices. However, it is not just the use of any webcast platform that is leading to such successful results; it is the use of NextLot’s unique privately branded platform that is making the difference.
NextLot’s online webcast platform allows auctioneers to broadcast their auctions with both real-time audio and video, providing online bidders with an experience that feels as though they are attending each event in person. This easy to use platform has not only led to an increase in the number of online bidders but has continued to increase the number of overall bids at each auction. Just take a look at what one NextLot client had to say about its platform after a recent auction:
“After six years of using NextLot as our online auction provider, we continue to receive the same type of service we were shown during the trial run. They sold us then and they continue to deal with us like they’re earning our business at every auction. Our last simulcast auction met and exceeded our expectations, but more so interesting was that 65% of all sales were to online purchasers, 86% of that to international buyers. We’re proud to work with NextLot and are glad to have them as a large part of our operational tool kit.” – Dennis Biliske with Main Resource Equipment Auctions & Land Sales
NextLot’s involvement has shown anywhere from a 10% to a 35% increase in prices at its clients’ auctions. The easy to use, privately branded software has proven to be an auctioneer’s best friend, so if you are an auctioneer and are looking for a innovative way to increase your auction results, think NextLot.
