R – E – S – P – E – C – T is what my mother taught me. If you respect other people they in turn will respect you.
DealDash gives you the appropriate tools to respect the other bidders. Yes this an auction, sometimes you win and sometimes you will lose. However, if you use the bid buddy and allow the timer to run you will earn more respect from the other bidders.
More often than not if you are jumping other bidders they will stay in longer and quiet possible try to make sure that you don’t win – even allowing someone else to win who was playing with respect. My bidding advice to gain respect in the auctions is to set your bid buddy with what ever amount of bids you have allotted for that auction. You can add or remove them amount at any time. When you set your bid buddy it will place you “in line” with the other bidders and therefore help conserve your bids because you won’t be using an excessive amount compared to people to bid immediately after someone else.
If you prefer to bid single bids that’s ok too, it’s just important to bid when the timer gets down to 2-3 seconds. However, when bidding like this there is more risk your bid is not accepted so be careful. DealDash even recommends that, if placing a single bid, you bid with at least 5 seconds on the clock. Using the bid buddy guarantees your bid will be placed during the final seconds of the auction so you’re best option is to use this tool and don’t risk losing respect from other bidders.
Keep in mind that if you bid hastily you take the time away from the other bidder and trust me they will not be happy about that. Taking their time away does not benefit you at all. So have respect and possibly win more auctions!
