Consulting Services

Sara Mellen has been running auctions for 12 years for a variety of nonprofit groups both in Colorado and Arizona, which led to the development of our book, SOLD: How To Run A Great Community Auction and our data solution, EasyAuction™. However, every auction is different, and we can help you work your way through the morass of decisions and circumstances that make your auction unique with our reasonably-priced consulting services:

Getting Started Package:
Three hours of consulting for the organization that has never run an auction. We’ll talk about an auction timeline, how to organize and optimize your volunteers, how to solicit donations and how to handle the data needs of the auction. Purchase of this package includes the book SOLD: How to Run a Great Community Auction. Cost: $200.

Auction Night Package:
Sara will provide three hours of pre-auction consulting via phone, email or web meeting, and will attend your auction to help you staff and volunteers implement your auction plan. Purchase of this package includes the book SOLD: How to Run a Great Community Auction. Cost: $700 plus travel expenses.

Hourly Consulting:
Get as much help as you need to help organize and run your auction. Cost: $75 per hour, with a free copy of SOLD: How to Run a Great Community Auction with your $150 purchase.
