MOBILE BIDDING 101
CAL SHAKES IS GOING MOBILE!
This year we are introducing a fun and fast way for you to bid in our silent auctions. Below are step-by-step instructions to get you started with mobile bidding, or if you prefer, here is a short video explaining how it works.
1. REGISTER YOUR SMARTPHONE. You can either wait until check-in at the gala and register in person or by emailing Jessie at firstname.lastname@example.org with your cell phone number and guests’ cell phone numbers.
2. CHECK YOUR PHONE FOR AN AUTOMATED TEXT with a link to log in, receive your bidder number, and confirm your name. The bidder number will display on your home screen. When prompted, confirm your name.
3. USE YOUR SMARTPHONE TO FIND SILENT AUCTION ITEMS. Search for silent auction items by number, keyword or category—or find items with no bids by selecting “No Bid Packages.”
4. START BIDDING! Silent auction items will be on display, so walk around and find your favorites! Select “Details/Bid” to bid on an item. You can keep track of the bidding remotely and bid the next increment, or give your highest max bid and let the system place bids in your favor – no need to hover over a bid sheet!
NO SMARTPHONE? NO PROBLEM: Simply find one of the many Mobile Bidding concierges throughout the silent auction area – they will be holding iPads and can place your bids for you. You can keep track of your bids on the leader board in the silent auction area.
