Steps to Becoming a Winner on DealDash

By Barbara

Nobody can win every auction on no matter how well we play, but there are certain steps we can take to win more often.

Step 1

Step 1 is to purchase a package of bids and start bidding. This would appear to be an obvious first step, right?  Well, maybe not. I heard a joke about a man who prayed and prayed to win the lottery, but he never did. Finally, out of frustration, the man prayed again and asked, “Why are my prayers not being answered?” Suddenly, he heard a big booming voice saying, “Well, it would help if you would buy a ticket.” The man had failed to take the first step. In other words, if we want to win, we must take the first step–purchase a bid pack and start playing.

Step 2

Step 2 is to stop long enough to learn from other shoppers and figure out what you might be doing wrong. Just take some time to watch and learn how to play. It amazes me how long it takes some people to do that. If you are the only one cutting the clock and placing a bid every other one, but other shoppers are not doing that, you better find out why. If the majority of other shoppers are allowing the clock to run the full 10 seconds on the clock, why don’t you? Why don’t you take turns like everybody else? Why are you using five times more bids than anybody else? What is going on here?  If you do not know the answer to those questions, you better find out.

Step 3

Step 3 is to use all of the resources available to learn how to become a better shopper. Start with the easiest-to-win products. The more valuable the retail cost of the item, the more difficult it usually is to win. Check the winners list to see which products are closing for the least amount of money. Also, pay attention to screen names that win the most auctions. They are the power shoppers that you might not want to compete with yet. Open some of the auctions and see how many bids the previous winners used to win the auction.
