These are only a few of the reasons why it’s helpful to learn about your competition. Read on for some tips and tricks on how to effectively scope out the competition on DealDash.
Don’t Bid – Just Observe – for Now
If you’re a newer bidder on DealDash and haven’t spent hundreds of hours watching auctions on your screen, then you might want to start by just watching auctions before you bid. This way you can get a feel for how long people typically stay in an auction, how many people stop bidding by $1 or $2 or $5, and also start to get familiar with some people’s screen names. This can be very handy information to know for the next time you are interested in participating in a similar auction.
Check Out the Winners
If you go to the main DealDash homepage and look at the top navigation bar you will see a tab called “Winners”. This tab has information on some of the most recent featured auctions that have closed within the past 24 hours on DealDash. If you click this tab you can see:
- The item
- It’s title
- The winner’s name and their avatar
- How much it sold for
- How many bids the winner placed
- What the estimated cost was for the winner
- What the BIN (Buy It Now) price is
- How long ago the auction closed
All of this information is extremely helpful when you are scoping out the competition. It’s good to check the Winner’s Tab every time you sign-in to DealDash to see what’s being won and for what price.
When you are scoping out the competition on DealDash, it would behoove you to make notes as you go along. There are so many different items and bidders on DealDash that it can be a little tricky to keep things straight after a while. This is especially true because so many people have similar bidding names – are you really going to remember if it was iLIKEtoWIN12 or LuvTOwin26 that bids until they reach the BIN price? You can make your notes on your “notepad” app on your computer, you could write it into an email that you send yourself, or you can even just use a plain old piece of paper and a pen. It’s up to you.
