Winning auctions isn’t something you learn to do overnight, so using them to save money can seem tricky at first. You might see and read about people winning more great bargains than they know what to do with, but what you might not hear so much about is that winning auctions is not about luck: it’s all skill! Many of the really smart bidders weren’t born winners, they learned through hard work, patience, and by thinking about what they’re doing. DealDash works hard to provide bidders with a fair and honest auction experience, and is currently the longest running auction site of its kind in the United States! But winning auctions is up to the individual bidders, and every bidder can take his or her own approach to winning the great bargains available with DealDash!
One feature on DealDash’s website that a lot of new bidders aren’t familiar with is the BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is an automated bidding tool, and a skilled bidder can use it to save time and money, and also as a great resource to help them WIN AUCTIONS! Here are three ways to incorporate the BidBuddy into your own winning strategy!
1. The BidBuddy is Key to Winning with Last Second Bidding
One strategy a lot of bidders use is to try to place their bids just before an auction closes. Every bidder is pressed to bid before the clock hits zero. And of course, nobody wants to place their bids if someone else intends to do the same thing, as this just means they’re placing a bid instead of your opponents. The BidBuddy is a great way to avoid this dilemma: the BidBuddy is programmed to automatically place your bids just before the auction closes. Try setting up your BidBuddy even if you’re planning on bidding manually for the entire auction. This tactic will make sure that your bids are only placed when absolutely necessary, thereby letting you CONSERVE your bids for when you need them to win!
2. The BidBuddy Makes a Great Safety Net
DealDash auctions don’t end according to a set schedule: they stop when the bidding stops (just like live auctions). While this makes them more exciting and offers bidders better bargains, it does demand more attention and focus. The deals are better, but it take more skill and determination to win! The BidBuddy is a great tool to set up as a safety net, especially for bidders who like to pay attention to more than one auction at a time. When you set up your BidBuddy, it is programmed to place your bids just before an auction closes, making it a great way to make sure a momentary distraction doesn’t cause you to lose a long, hard-fought auction. Instead of panicking and switching between multiple auction windows in an effort to place your bids before the auction closes, why not set up your BidBuddy to participate for you? It won’t waste your bids by placing them earlier than necessary, and it leaves you free to check out additional auctions, do research on the products, or just popping in on Facebook to see what’s happening. You can even turn off your computer and take a walk or watch some television: the BidBuddy will keep on ticking to make sure you stay in the fight!
3. People Know Not to Bid Against the BidBuddy
A lot of experienced users know how to spot BidBuddies in the auctions. When several bidders have BidBuddies in the same auction, they bid in a regular sequence, so they’re not so difficult to see. But even though bidders can tell when you’re using a BidBuddy, they can’t tell how many bids you’ve set it up with, or if you’re there watching. This makes using the BidBuddy a bit of a game changer. Bidding against a BidBuddy loaded up with thousands of bids will just mean everyone bidding against it is wasting their bids, but if a BidBuddy only has 10 bids or so then sticking with the auction can result in an easy, potentially very big win! Keep this in mind when you’re loading up a BidBuddy in the auction. When you think an auction is nearing its close try adding a few dozen bids to see if you can get some other bidders to give up the fight. You should also remember that other bidders will try the same thing against you, so don’t be too hasty pulling out of a fight with another BidBuddy! Take a moment to consider the item price, whether or not you’re familiar with your opponents and their bidding, and how much further you’re willing to go to win!
