DealDash Tips: Making Time to Shop

Whenever we are shopping on, it’s important to ensure that we have plenty of time to shop.  Timing could make the difference between winning and losing.

To make sure the timing is right, we should do the following:

  1. Choose a time of night or day when we will not be disturbed or distracted by other interruptions.
  2. Choose a time of night or day when the competition might be lower than normal.
  3. Choose a time of night or day when we are not overly tired and can stay awake and alert.

Do Not Disturb

It might be a good idea to find a quiet place and put a “do not disturb” sign on your door. If you get an unexpected visitor or phone call at the wrong time, you could lose your focus and lose the auction or auctions you are trying to win. I often lost an auction while shopping on DealDash simply because an unexpected visitor showed up at my door or because I took the time to answer the phone.

Less Competition

It’s important to shop on at various times of the night and day so we know when the competition might be low. Of course, the lower the competition, the better chance we will have to win more auctions.

Stay Alert

To win auctions, it is also that we choose a time to shop when we know we can stay awake and alert. If we are serious about winning auctions, the last thing we would want to do is to nod off to sleep or lose focus at the wrong time. I often lost auctions when I lost focus, even for a few minutes.
