Your charity auctioneer can also help "sell" the Silent Auction items. For me this means that I am familiar with the Silent Auction items and engage with guests who are checking out the items. I love talking to possible bidders about why they are interested in a certain item and what they are going to use it for. It is a simple questions that is easy to create conversation around and to encourage the donor to bid again and again.
Make sure that your Benefit Auctioneer|Charity Auctioneer|Non-Profit Auctioneer is working for you and your organization during the silent auction.
