QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK A POTENTIAL BENEFIT AUCTIONEER

  • How experienced are you in non-profit or school fund-raising auctions?
  • How many fund-raising auctions do you conduct each year?
  • What percentage of your business is fund-raising auctions?
  • Do you have the BAS (Benefit Auctioneer Specialist) professional designation?
  • How would you describe your bid-calling technique?
  • What was one of the toughest situations you have encountered as an auctioneer – and how was it resolved?
  • How do you interact with the crowd?
  • What is your Raise The Paddle / Fund-An-Item / Special Appeal strategy?
  • Other than night-of auctioneering, what other services do you provide?
  • What value can you bring to our event?
  • Tell us why your style would be a good fit for our organization.
