Turn Your Silent Auction into a Luxury Shopping Experience: Infographic

Posted by Summy Lau

Just think of the hundreds of people roaming the mall on any given Saturday afternoon. Some of these mall shoppers will purchase items they have been saving for, but many will buy items they are seeing for the first time. That's because mall shelves are stocked with highly desirable items displayed in ways that encourage people to open their wallets.

In other words, people have money to spend if the right products are put in front of them in the right way.

Are you pairing unique, valuable products with a strategic floor plan and irresistible displays at your silent auction?

As every luxury retailer knows, the perceived value of an item is much more important than the value of the item itself. Elevate the status of your event and the perceived value of all your items by including big-ticket items and once-in-a-lifetime Experiences in your silent auction.
