Stay to your own type of bidder at DealDash. This is one of the easiest strategies you can do at DealDash. There are several different types of bidders at DealDash and it’s best if you keep to your “own kind” Once you get to know the bidders you will know if they are going to come in early and stay or drop in one bid and come back later.
Knowing the competition is very helpful but not always necessary. Let’s say, for example, you have been bidding and there seems to be no end in sight, there has been this other guy who has been bidding too, but then suddenly he leaves and you are left with three new people, I call this auction “taking on a new life” the auction has eight bidders, four originals and four new people. The four original bidders leave and the four new people stay. There is a very good chance that the four you are in with will win if you do this. Stay with those people. By this I mean the four originals will leave, the four new people come in you are one of the new people, if you stay you now become one of the original people with fewer bids, but then the second round of bidders come in, they have less bids than you. If you stay with the group you started out with, you will have the same amount of bids invested that they do.
If you don’t know the competition, it’s simple enough to just watch, 4 start, 4 join, 4 leave, four stay, four come back and the four who stayed are now gone. Stay with the group you started out with or you will over bid.
Then there is the really late bidder, let’s say you have 1000 bids invested and suddenly a guy jumps in who has only used 10 bids, there are a few other guys in there and they have used 500 bids, jump out and wait for the jumper to use all his bid, then come back, that puts you in his category with the same amount of bids. You don’t want the competition to have less bids in an auction than you do . You do have to try to juggle the amount of bids you have with the amounts others have.
These are just a few of the strategies you can use to keep you bidding partner close and your enemies apart.
Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
