As a DealDash bidder, I’m sure you know the feeling of losing an auction due to not being alert. Here are some tips to help.
I fondly look back on how uninformed I was when I first started bidding on DealDash. I was impulsive, quick to join in an auction, and I didn’t realize at first how long auctions can actually go on before there is a winner. I remember losing quite a few auctions in the early days because I just got too distracted or sleepy and stopped paying close enough attention to the auction, and someone else was the winner. I am here to give you some tips on how to keep focused and alert during the auction.
Before we get into how to stay alert, the first tip that I would like to share is that you should really do your research on how long auctions of this type normally go on – for example, an auction for a $20 Blu-Ray movie will be considerably shorter than an auction for a $1,000 TV. If you are short on time and it’s an item that you are willing to BIN (Buy It Now) then I would suggest that you just load up your BidBuddy with the appropriate number of bids, and come back later to see if you’ve won. If it’s a bigger ticket item I would suggest just tossing in a few bids and returning later to check on the auction, and get more serious about the auction after it’s been running for a while.
If you’re determined to stay and watch the auctions, you are going to need to stay alert so you don’t get distracted and lose the auction. A way that I have found very helpful in staying alert is to keep each auction page open in its own tab on my computer, and that way you can easily click back and forth between them.
Another suggestion would be not to bid on too many auctions at once. When your attention is divided among more than a couple of auctions it can be very difficult to pay attention to each of them. If you want to participate in more than 2 or 3 auctions at a time, I would definitely suggest making use of the BidBuddy. If you load up 20 or so bids at a time on each of the auctions that you are interested in, it gives you enough time to be able to pay attention to other auctions while ensuring that no one else scoops up the win from you.
