Are you ever bidding on DealDash and bidders do something that you just don’t understand? Here are some insights as to why they might behave as they do.
Bidding on Deal Dash can be one of the best ways to find great products for an affordable price while having fun bidding on the auctions. However, an increasing number of people are flocking to DealDash and bidding side-by-side with bidders who have been around for years. Sometimes these newer bidders bid in ways that are different and confuse some of the other bidders. Here are some ideas as to why they might bid differently.
The first (and main) reason that bidder seem to bid erratically is that they don’t understand what they’re doing. These new bidders see the ads on TV for DealDash, and come join without thoroughly checking out the auctions first. If they are coming from a more traditional on-line bidding site they may not be aware of how our beloved DealDash works. There’s no way for you as a fellow bidder to educate them, so you will just have to ignore some of the new bidder habits, even though they are different from what you are used to seeing.
Another reason that bidders sometimes bid in strange ways is that they lack focus. They don’t come in with a plan for their bidding. Many of these bidders jump into three, four or more auctions at once – or worse yet, they just throw the bids around randomly hoping to “hit the jackpot” and win with just 1 or 2 bids. We all know that is very unlikely to happen, and they will realize that as well eventually. Playing multiple auctions can be exciting but if they don’t have a plan, they are very likely just wasting bids.
Finally, another reason that bidders seem to bid in a strange way is that they have that “I have to win” mentality. Some people just don’t seem to realize that winning each and every auction just isn’t reasonable or sustainable long-term. Don’t worry, as soon as these bidders take a few losses and end up “winning” an auction for twice as many bids as it would have taken them to just BIN (Buy It Now) they will most likely calm down and start bidding more reasonably.
DealDash auctions are an exciting way to use entertainment shopping to make purchases, but like any hobby, it takes time and experience to win consistently. Hopefully after reading this article you have a bit better understanding why some bidders bid as they do. Take your knowledge and go check out the auctions. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
