You're invited to participate in our third annual "Bid Summer Goodbye" promotion where we will be promoting and recruiting the sale of Sportsman and Winter Items. We will be actively pursuing the consignment of Hunting & Sportsman Items, Fish Houses, Snowmobiles, ATV's, Campers, 4WD Vehicles, Plows and more.
K-BID will promote this event heavily from now until the last auction closes at the end of October.
This event is open to ALL affiliates, so get the word out! Talk to your consignors! Recruit new consignors! We are looking for sellers who are serious about selling these items. Let everyone know if they’ve been thinking about selling, our Fall event will be reaching thousands of people.
This does not prevent you from scheduling or closing other auctions during this week! However, auctions that fit the assets described above will be receiving extra promotion courtesy of K-BID.
We will be running multiple ads promoting the event and sending potential consignors to a custom landing page that explains the process and asks them to fill out a short form with the items they have to sell: Bid Summer Goodbye Seller Page
What else should you do if you want to participate?
- Contact your current network of sellers and friends.
- Get social! Use Facebook to promote the fact that you are creating a consignment auction. Check local swap and shop groups.
