New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Trends and Benefits of online auctions, charity fundraising, cause marketing, corporate philanthropy and social commerce are just some of the topics that will be discussed in a free one-hour webinar hosted by Acteva and Charity Bids on February 8, 2012 at 2 pm (EST)/11 am (PST). Discover how some of the most recognizable non-profits, corporations and celebrities have benefited from online auctions.
While direct donations to charity might be down, online shopping is up, making this the perfect time for online charity auctions and CSR campaigns. Online campaigns enable non-profits to raise funds through the auction of in-kind items and experiences, either leading up to an event or on a standalone virtual basis. Israel Schachter, co-founder and CEO of Charity Bids, the world’s most advanced auction platform, will lead the discussion and will offer insight into new fundraising technologies and ideas with webinar participants. Participants will also have a chance to ask questions during a live Q&A session at the end.
In this webinar, participants will learn how to:
· Benefit from online auctions even if they have limited manpower and resources.
· Easily create completely customizable auctions on a secure platform.
· Use social media to maximize exposure of their auction and connect with the community.
· Broaden fundraising endeavors to have extensive, international appeal and donor reach.
· Solicit and make use of in-kind gifts that corporate and individual donors contribute.
· Compile comprehensive consumer intelligence data
Who should attend this webinar:
· Non-profits wanting to exceed fundraising goals and raise awareness of their mission.
· Corporations wanting to engage their employees and the public in philanthropic activity.
