New Bidders: All the Help You Need to Succeed on DealDash

I remember back almost two years ago when I was a “newbie” on DealDash and I’ll admit, I was a little intimidated by the process of bidding. With time, patience and practice, I slowly discovered that DealDash has all the tools available for newbies (and all bidders) to up their game and win on DealDash. Over time, the tools offered to bidders have grown and one area that’s particularly useful to new bidders is located in the Help section.

 

Where Can New Bidders Find Help?

It’s super easy! Click Help on the main page of the DealDash auction site. It is the second tab in from the left right after the Auctions tab. Once there, you will notice several tabs that will help give you some useful tips on how to get started.

 

The How It Works Video

 This is a great starting place for all newbies. In a short video just under three minutes in length, DealDash gives you a quick and easy tour on how the bidding and winning process works on DealDash. For a short investment of time, you’ll get all the basics on one easy step. Be sure to check it out before you get started.

 

The How to Bid in an Auction tab

This great little section gives you information on how to get bids back with the Buy It Now option, how to use and save bids with BidBuddy, how to get free bids with Time as the Highest Bidder and information on Winning Limits.  All of these features will help you save time, money and bids on DealDash.

 

The Tutorial Auction

I honestly think this little invention is one of the greatest things DealDash has to offer its newest bidders. Operating the tutorial is great for two reasons:  1) it gives you a free walk-through of bidding in an auction and 2) it does so without you having to invest any bids. Try it as many times as you like to get the hang of bidding.

 

Tips & Tricks in One Easy Location

 Who doesn’t love a one-stop spot for tips and tricks? This tab gives you the place to go to learn about conserving bids, using BidBuddy, earning free bids, studying your competition, the Buy It Now option, using the Winners tab and even more tips on maximizing your bids on DealDash.

 

More Help Just Where You Need It

The Help section also provides tabs named: What is a bid pack?, What is “Time as highest bidder”?, Promotions, Orders & Shipping, Payments and House Rules. All of this is helpful information to new bidders to the site.

 

When All Else Fails…

 While DealDash does a fantastic job of providing its bidders with the information it needs to be successful, there may be those times when you just can’t figure something out and need a little additional assistance. For this, there is Customer Support.  Time and time again, the customer support team has been top-rated by bidders and they are always available to help.  If you have a question, feel free to ask.

DealDash puts forth a great effort to listen to its customers and provide them with the tools to educate themselves and succeed in the auctions. Here’s wishing you great bids and great wins!

Get to Know the Competition With the Winners Tab on DealDash

It’s no secret that DealDash provides a plethora of tools for the everyday bidder to succeed. There’s the Tips & Tricks section, user blogs, social media connections and my favorite—the Winners Tab. With a little guidance, I’ll walk you through all this great tab can do for you.

The Winners Tab is located on the bar just above the large banner on the main page of DealDash. It is just below and to the left of the Dashboard tab. Click on it for some great information on your competition.

First, a word about the competition.  There are so many types of bidders. You have experienced bidders who have been on the site practically from the beginning. Then you will have the mid-level bidders who win now and then. And of course you have the newbies who are learning the ropes. No matter what type of bidders you are up against, you still have a chance to win!

The Winners Tab provides the following information:

  • Usernames of the winners of every auction for the past 24 hours. *approximately
  • How many bids each winner used to win each item.
  • The ending price of each auction won.
  • The average cost for each won item (using a 12 cents per bid approximated cost).

 

DealDash

 

Here’s how I use the Winners Tab to assess my competition for the day:

When I am in an auction, I like to use the Winners Tab to search for the usernames of those I am competing against in any given auction and here is what I look for:

Multiple wins over 24 hours.

If the person I am bidding against has won a dozen or more auctions over the past 24 hours, I usually take that as a sign that they are on a “winning streak.”

My assessment:  I generally don’t shy away from these types of bidders if it’s an item I really want. I may watch the auction and enter a little later than I normally would and still stick to my bidding budget.

Number of bids used to win

If a bidder uses an excessive number of bids to win a small item, I view this as a bidder who is willing to win at any cost—even if it means overbidding and overspending. Naturally, larger and more expensive items will require more bids to win, sometimes hundreds or thousands, but I tend not to go overboard on smaller items.

Assessment:  You never know if the person bidding is almost out of bids because they just overspent on their last win. It never hurts to try. You never know; luck could be on my side.

Ending price vs. Number of Bids Used

If you see a bidder who has an ending auction price of $10.00 but they only used 50 bids to win, chances are their strategy of jumping in on the auction late paid off for them. Oftentimes these types of bidders will place a few bids in the beginning of the auction, disappear and reappear when there are only a few bidders left in the auction.

Assessment: Although this can be a frustrating tactic, it’s also one that doesn’t always work out for the jumper. Standing your ground is sometimes all that is needed. Based on experience, I’ve also been in a number of auctions where the jumper only places a one or a few bids and that’s it. I stick it out—at least for a little while.

The Winners Tab provides a lot of information, but there are so many factors that go into winning. Experienced bidders don’t always win and new bidders don’t always lose. While there is a certain level of awareness, patience and yes, even luck, involved, there is no exact science. You can use the tools to your advantage but you never know how many bids a person has or doesn’t have, how much time or how many bids they have available to invest or if they are willing to win at all costs. The only way to win is to try and sometimes try again!

Happy bidding on DealDash!

How to Strategize Your Way Out of a Winning Slump on DealDash

When you’re in a winning slump and you just don’t quite know what to do, take it to heart that we all go through those times and it’s not uncommon. If you’d like to get your bidding groove back, here are a few things to consider:

 

Is it just a busy day? Do there seem to be a lot more bidders on than normal? Do you secretly wonder where they all came from and why they came out in droves today?

 

Is there a really great promotion going on? Is it a free auction wins or half-price auction wins day? Can you earn 3x – 4x more time as the highest bidder? Are there 50 or more auctions starting at the same time? If so, these are all popular promotions that drive bidders to bid.

 

Are there a lot of experienced bidders today? There are some bidders who have been on the site a long time—since it started even! They know their way around the auctions and have developed a skill for winning. You’ll get to know their user names the more you bid.

 

Are you bidding during a popular day and time of week?  I always ask myself if the majority of bidders would be on when I’m bidding. For example, is it after work and before bed, a weekend or holiday? If it’s one of these types of days and times, chances are many others are available to bid.

 

So how do you combat these things and get your strategy going for the win?

 

  • Try late evening or early morning hours during the week when there may be fewer bidders on. Keep in mind DealDash is available to U.S. residents in all time zones so your midnight may be someone else’s peak time of 9 p.m.

 

  • Try a weekday when most are at work. It might be just the trick you’re looking for to increase your chances of winning.

 

  • Try a day with regular priced buys instead of a promotion-heavy one. Chances are your win will still be just pennies on the dollar.

 

  • Take a break and come back later. If you’re having a morning where you just can’t seem to win a thing, try coming back in the afternoon and bidding traffic may be lighter.

 

  • Switch up your strategy. If you start bidding from the get-go on an item, put in a handful of bids then see if the bidders stay plentiful. If there are a lot of bidders, pull back and watch the bidding for a while until it tapers off a bit. Pop back in the auction at a mid-way point. Just a word of caution: I’ve tried this unsuccessfully by waiting until there are just two bidders and in many cases, the last two bidders drop out of the auction at the same time, leaving me stranded and someone else getting the win.

 

  • Be patient. Take the time to make a wish list and follow those items, days, times, bidders and end prices to make a strategic plan for winning specific items. Most items come back around for auction on no time!

I hope these tips to help you out of your winning slump and get you moving toward your next great win really soon.

 

Have a great DealDash day!

Why DealDash is the Perfect Place for all Your Jewelry Needs

One of the best auctions I won on DealDash was a beautiful men’s watch that I gave my father for Christmas. While he loved the style and eye-catching qualities of his fancy new watch and wanted to know if I had won the Lotto in order to be able to afford such a fine piece of jewelry, I held the secret that I had paid less than five dollars for a $350 watch by winning it on DealDash! Because of true stories like these, it’s no wonder that the jewelry category at DealDash is one of its most popular. In fact, there are many reasons to check out the jewelry options at DealDash.
