Overview

Leaderboards are used to display bidding or donation activity at benefit auctions and fund-a-need events. They are usually projected on the wall of an event, a flat screen, laptops or mobile devices in high traffic areas at a venue.

The Leaderboard Display is a feature of Online Bidding and can easily be setup and customized via Greater Giving web account, then linked to a device with the URL

You can use the Leaderboard Displays to increase your guests’ awareness of funds raised and enable them to quickly see auction status. It’s also a great way to promote sponsors for your event by showing their logos scrolling on the screens.

Benefits

Online Bidding leaderboards add colorful digital displays to key areas of your event— keeping guests informed, engaged and bidding more. Our unique system allows you to customize multiple styles in different areas of your venue. So no matter where they are, your supporters will be cheering alongside you as you reach your fundraising goal together!

Leaderboards can do the following for you:

  • Build Excitement: Use bidding countdowns and winning bidder updates to increase competition.
  • Include Everyone: Enable all guests to participate, wherever they are in your venue. Bid Assistants place near leaderboards can assist with bidding on a tablet.
  • Spotlight Packages: Your auctioneer or emcee call out specific packages to create a sense of urgency.
  • Highlight Sponsors: Incentivize your sponsors by displaying their logos prominently on the Leaderboard Display.
  • Customize Backgrounds: You can customize different background colors and themes for multiple areas of the venue.

Features

Customizable Display

You can customize your leaderboards to rotate a variety of display options:

  • Switchable background color schemes
  • Show all packages (typical display during silent auctions)
  • Show sold items after closing (typical display after a silent auction closes)
  • Focus on one category
  • Show open packages with no bids (great deals)

Sponsor Logo Display

Optimize sponsorship opportunities by displaying your sponsors’ logos on bidder screens and the Leaderboard Displays. You can either have multiple sponsors or set a higher amount for a primary sponsorship of the Leaderboard Displays. Leaderboard visibility at an event can also create future sponsorships from prospects attending your event.

Leaderboard Placement

Maximize and maintain interest in your event by strategically placing your Leaderboard Displays in high traffic areas of your venue. Areas where people congregate, such as the bar, are ideal for capturing the attention of your guests.

Highlight Packages

Use the Leaderboard Display to highlight packages of special interest. Your auctioneer or emcee can speak to packages that are bidding high or ones that still need bids.

Countdown Timer

Countdown timers give your event a “Happy New Years” buzz by creating energy in the room. The thermometer can be customized with different shapes and backgrounds colors, and the goal can be displayed or hidden.

 

What Our Clients Say

Textbox

"One of our past event challenges were items left over after the auction due to guests not picking them up or having incomplete contact information to contact the high bidder. After using Greater Giving, all of our items were sold the night of the event. And our attendees have been really happy with the streamlined process - much shorter check-out lines."

— San Francisco 49ers Foundation, CA
