Start the New Year Off Right With DealDash Confidence

When I started bidding over two years ago the one thing I lacked—and subsequently needed most—was confidence. I was a fresh newbie, spending money on bid packs and not fully understanding the bidding scene and all its subtle nuances. Whether you’re a newbie or someone who has been bidding for a while, confidence is key and here’s how to get it.

Learn all you call about how the bidding process works. Read the customer-written blogs (like this one), the Tips & Tricks section on DealDash and tutorials. The more knowledge you have on the way things work and what the process is, the more confident you will be placing your own bids.

Watch other auctions in process as they are happening and notice patterns of bidders (jumping in and out, bidding from the start, joining in the middle, jumping in at the end). Do you notice patterns? Behavior by the same people over and over again? Take notes.

Use tools to predict bidder behaviors. Utilizing the Winners tab will enable you to see if the person you’re bidding against has recently won a large or multiple items in the past 24 hours. When they do win, are they overbidding (example: bidding 500 bids on an item worth $50 seems excessive)? Although it is not an exact science or 100 percent accurate predictor on how a previous winner will bid on any given auction, they may be ones to watch.

Start small with your bids. In other words, bid on a $100 item to start rather than a $1000 item to start. There will likely be less people in the auction and that means a greater chance for you to win.

Win with confidence. Know that every small win could lead to a bigger win and then a bigger win still. Putting all the pieces of the bidding puzzle together—or as much as possible anyway—will help you to win more and gain confidence as you get into the bidding pool.

Happy bidding on DealDash!

DealDash Bidding Resolutions


What are your New Year’s DealDash bidding resolutions this year?

There are many different bidding resolutions that you could choose to make this year. It all depends on how much you use DealDash and what your bidding style is, but here are some common bidding resolutions that you could choose to make this year. Read on for more information on bidding resolutions.

Resolve to Get Free Bids

DealDash loves to give free bids to their loyal bidders. Did you know that you can get free bids for just visiting DealDash and placing a bid? It sounds strange and like a trick, but it’s 100% legit. DealDash will give you between 4-30 bids every time you visit DealDash and place a bid on consecutive days. If you come and bid for a whole week on consecutive days you will end up earning 30 bids on the 7th day!

If you’ve been bidding on DealDash you are probably familiar with this one, but you always receive time on your time clock for being the highest bidder in a DealDash auction. As you bid your time clock meter starts filling up with green when you are the highest bidder. Once your little green meter at the bottom of your screen has been filled up, you will be credited with free bids. Getting free bids from DealDash is a great bidding resolution for the new year.

Resolve to Use the BidBuddy

Using the BidBuddy is a no-brainer, but some people simply just don’t realize how awesome the BidBuddy truly is. The BidBuddy will bid for you when you aren’t there – or when you are there but prefer not to place single bids. The BidBuddy wins more auctions for DealDash bidders than placing single bids does.

If you haven’t been using the BidBuddy regularly, then you should make it your bidding resolution to start using it this year. It will save you bids and money because it bids in turn with the other BidBuddies. It doesn’t waste any bids and only bids when it’s your “turn” to bid. Don’t waste your bids this year, resolve to use the BidBuddy.

Resolve to Budget

A common mistake that people make when they first start bidding on DealDash is to not figure out a bidding budget. It’s easy to get carried away and spend all of your bids in one auction if you’re not paying attention. This is why it’s important to make a bidding budget. You can figure out how many bids you want to purchase and how many bids that you want to spend on each auction. You might choose to do a BIN (Buy It Now) and get your bids back, therefore keeping your bidding budget in check. Resolve to have a bidding budget this year and you will be glad that you did.
