I’ve been DealDashing for years now and there’s one thing that really helps me re-set myself as a successful auction winner and that is taking a look at how and why I bid and making a few New Years resolutions to get more wins. Here are my top five resolutions for 2019.
- Re-evaluate What You Bid on
I used to bid on anything and everything. Not only does it take up time, but it takes up bids. Taking a look at the things I really want to win and bidding on those items helps me to focus on the things I want most. If I really want to win an item, I will commit to the win more than if it is an item I know I’ll exchange to bids.
- Try New Strategies
Are you a bidder who bids early right from the start of an auction or one who hangs back a bit until starting your bidding? Do you wait until there are just a handful of bidders before deciding to give it a go? Whatever your typical method of bidding, try something new in 2019! As an early bidder, I tried different ways of bidding, which I will admit was a bit foreign for me, but it ultimately opened me up to new wins! Give it a try!
- Bid Different Days and Times of Day
If you’re a creature of habit with your strategies, you likely bid he same days of the week and times of day. This means you’re also bidding against bidders who do the same so you’re likely to be bidding against the same bidders. My rule of thumb is this: if I’m bidding when I’m free to bid (nights, weekends) when I have time off, it’s likely others are doing the same. Try bidding during the day, early morning or late evening for a change of pace.
- Go for a Big-Ticket Item
Nothing ventured, nothing gained is my policy on big ticket items on DealDash. Take a chance on a painting, electronics or even a brand new car! If you don’t take a chance, you will never know!
