I’m so excited about this week’s episode because it covers a really juicy topic: How to Make the Most of Silent Auctions. And, to make it even better… I interviewed Nicole Begley of Nicole Begley Photography, and she is a pro at getting the most out of the silent auctions she participates. In this interview Nicole covers how to choose silent auctions, what you should offer, display, and much more! In case you don’t know Nicole you can check her out at the bottom of this post.
I know this is a topic that can be a tough one for photographers. I know I’ve put an item in a silent auction before only to hear crickets afterwards. If this has happened to you, make sure you take a listen so you can maximize the return on the silent auctions you participate in. Click below to listen to the episode.
Plus… Nicole is so amazing that she also put together a little freebie for this episode. She has a Silent Auction Checklist for you, and you can grab it right HERE!
Please let me and Nicole know what you thought of this episode, and if you have any topics or tips you want to share please let me know!
