Default Online Auctions - Discover 6 Myths Surrounding Them

Some myths about auctions.....

"Only products are auctioned? Not true - in fact, services are also auctioned. Services such as Telemarketing services, Cellular phone services, Security services, and temporary labor services are all good examples."

Interesting timing. I just completed a 5 month project building a complete auction system for hunting and fishing trips. It all fell apart over finances but it "was" a good idea. Now I own the system, the logos and the domains and have nothing to do with them. But that's off topic.

I also considered holding an auction for print advertising. Offering the back cover of a periodical at auction. My sales director talked me out of it because... well... he didn't want to wait 60 days to sell the back cover. We will hold a silent auction for the next volume giving the major advertisers a shot at it over the contract period already sold.

There are many ways to hold an auction... and they are useful... but sometimes you just want to sell the old fashioned way. NOW!
