If you’re not doing your research on the other bidders, you’re cheating yourself out of auction wins…
You love DealDash, I love DealDash, everyone loves DealDash! DealDash has been around since 2009, and has picked up so many registered users, there is always plenty of competition on the site. More competition means it’s more difficult to win auctions at a low price. Luckily, the more that you learn about the bidders on DealDash the more likely you are to win.
Whether you are just starting out on DealDash or if you are a seasoned bidder that’s been with DealDash since the beginning, it pays to know your competition. Who is your competition? Everyone! There are so many different types, ages, and personalities of bidders on DealDash, that you really need to be taking notes. Yes, seriously. You may choose to take notes on an Excel spreadsheet, a word document, emails to yourself, or even a plain old pen and paper. How you save your DealDash bidder research notes is up to you, but I personally prefer an Excel spreadsheet.
If you are going to start taking notes on different bidders using an Excel spreadsheet, I would start as soon as possible, and spend as much time doing your research as you can. The more bidders that you can add to your spreadsheet the better off you will be, and the more auctions that you will win.
There are a few things that you should take note of when doing research on DealDash bidders. You should make a note of bidder names, what sorts of auctions that they bid on, if they drop out of auctions early or stay late and over-bid, and if they are a polite bidder or a stomper. Once you have all of this information, then you can come into auctions more informed, and therefore more likely to be successful.
Once you start doing research on DealDash bidders you can categorize your bidders however you like. Some possible ways you might like to categorize your bidders are:
- Drop outs
- Alphabetically (for easy look-up)
- Or you might like to organize the bidders by their favorite categories, such as “gift cards” or “tools”
