In-Game Mobile Bidding: Without Leaving Your Seat
Easily setup and organize home game auctions with team memorabilia. Use it FREE during the pre-season!
In 2012, ClickBid partnered with The Orlando Magic to conduct mobile bidding silent auctions for each Magic home game. ClickBid is in a unique position to provide unlimited reach to guests thanks to our mobile platform that works with mobile devices.
The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation experienced a decline in available resources to conduct in-game auctions and needed to streamline its process of engaging attendees. In addition, the foundation wanted to increase exposure of the auction items to more fans than just those who happened upon the auction table.
ClickBid provided a web based mobile bidding silent auction platform allowing guests to access the foundation’s auctions from their seats using their smartphones (or from any location with Internet access – fans watching at home). A game attendee could now view photos of items up for auction before they left their house for the game, place a bid from the concessions line, receive an outbid text message, and place another bid from their seat without missing a second of the game. Once the auction closed, winning bidders were alerted of their totals and prompted to pay securely from their phones via credit card. They were also provided an electronic receipt to show at guest services to claim the items they won. They could do all this without seeing an auction table display and from any place in the arena.
In previous years with tables, paper and employees, the foundation was receiving bids on a regular basis from about 20 guests. With ClickBid, bidders increased to over 800 guests bidding from their phones. This freed up the need to staff an auction table because all the items were visible online before the event and during bidding. The process became so streamlined that a single foundation staff member was able to set up each auction prior to the home game, allowing the software to handle all of the auction functions during the game. ClickBid also drove revenue increases by promoting auction items via email 24 hours in advance of each game, giving registered guests the ability to log in and start bidding. Clickbid provided all bidding history and totals in an accessible format to help the foundation identify which items sold well and which to solicit from players for upcoming auctions. And, most importantly, the foundation extended its circle of support, expanding their database with fresh contact information from winning bidders.
