Virtual fundraising and auctions are opportunities to raise funds and awareness for an important cause. When properly executed, they can be wildly successful and effective.
What is a Virtual Auction?
What to Expect During a Virtual Auction
A virtual auction is very similar to an in-person auction. Key steps include setting goals, collecting auction items, creating an event marketing plan, developing an event program, and promoting the virtual auction on social media. The main difference is the mobile bidding technology. Hosts will need to dedicate time to learning the platform, but mobile bidding technology is much more convenient than paper bid sheets and in-person check-out.

A virtual event’s programming schedule plays a critical role in ensuring fundraising success, both in terms of engagement and revenue. At CTC, we have adopted the following approach to event planning:
We want to know what your objectives and goals are for your program so that our scope of work is built around your needs.
We will set up an easy-to-use communication process and create a timeline for you so that you can monitor our progress.
We make sure no money is left on the table through our national partnerships and tenacious negotiations which can save you 15% – 40%.
Our team will work with you to develop a program that succeeds your goals, makes your boss proud of you and leaves your attendees wanting more.
We have your back. Our on-site experienced team will manage all the logistics and marketing needs while you do what you do best: taking care of your sponsors, VIPs, and attendees.
From input from you and your team, attendees, the CTC team, and vendors and all the program statistics, a program “playbook” is created for you to begin the next planning process.
As experienced event planners, we know that “the devil is in the details.” We also know that what every organization ultimately wants is for their audience and attendees to walk away with inspiration, smart skills, and tools, and to feel empowered to take their newly acquired training or keynote and put it to work in the real world.
