For the Online Auction Solution package Silent Partners will:

  • Work with your organization to develop an appropriate and effective donation request letter.
  • Mail-merge solicitation letter with our domestic and international donor database. This database is a product of years of research and is continually updated to meet the special needs of each client. We do everything to ensure that our clients receive hundreds of valuable items for their auctions — everything from exotic international hotels and airlines to local restaurants and spas, autographed sports and entertainment memorabilia, show tickets and more. Need a trip to Hawaii, Europe, Asia or a cruise for your live auction? We can secure them for you!
  • Create an attractive auction donation form that will include your organization’s logo as well as information from each donor such as company name, donation description, special instructions, estimated value, etc.
  • Make arrangements for pick-up/shipping of auction items from donors and/or your organization.
  • Store all donations (within size limitations).
  • Catalog all items. This refers to packaging items together (i.e. restaurants with theatre tickets) and placing them in the correct category on eBay.
  • Photograph items where appropriate for their listing on eBay.
  • Create your Vanity URL and About Me Page with eBay .
  • Set up the eBay store, create the auction layout and display all items in an attractive manner.
  • List the items on eBay along with linking back to your organization’s website and placing text about your mission in the auction itself.
  • Work with your organization to monitor the auction on eBay.
  • Answer all questions bidders may have during the auction.
  • Handle all payment and shipping after the auction.
  • Work with your organization to develop an appropriate thank you letter to be mailed to the auction donors within 30 days after the event.
  • Merge and process the thank you letters on your organization’s letterhead.
