How to Still Make Money with Small Estate Auctions
An interactive discussion about how to make money and conduct auctions for estates that will gross under $10,000. We will discuss ways to use guarantees, fees and commissions to make these auctions profitable as well as the use of internet only auctions to sell the items in place.
Create a Company Facebook Page and Use It to Build Your Business
This is an interactive class where the presenter will work with one attendee in front of the group to create a Facebook company page right then and place ads for an upcoming auction. Paid Facebook ads are the hottest marketing opportunity for many auction companies currently.
Auctions and the Law
A basic level refresher class about how the law can and does affect us in the auction business. This broad class discusses general principals and ideas. It is designed to hopefully keep you on the right side of the law and out of the courtroom.
