SchoolAuction.net is a service of Northworld LLC, the premier provider of benefit-auction software solutions. Which is to say, we’re a software company who likes to help non-profits with their fundraisers.
Since 2006, we’ve grown our tiny little software company to… well, a less-tiny software company. We’re in no danger of being mistaken for Facebook, but that’s okay. We’re making it work, we’re self-sustaining, we’ve been able to hire more developers to make the software even better, and more support staff to make sure that you get the answers you need quickly.
What’s been more difficult to grow is the sales side of things. It’s not easy to market to volunteer auction chairs; it’s not like all of you subscribe to Volunteer Auction Chair Monthly. So we have to do a lot of inbound marketing - we make ourselves as find-able as we can, so that when an auction chair goes looking for help, she can find us.
What she really likes to find when she goes hunting for auction software are reviews - real reviews, by real customers, who share what the good and the bad are about the auction software products they have tried.
And luckily for us, there are a few websites that collect and validate real reviews for companies like us.
So now all we have to do is ask you to review us. We don’t believe that you can be bribed, and we wouldn’t want to taint your reviews by paying for them anyway. So we’re not going to send you a check, or a coffee mug, or anything like that. But I think it would be okay to recognize your non-profit organization for the time you spend helping us with a coupon code you can use for a discount off the group’s next renewal.
So here’s the ask: please go to each of the review sites below, and fill out a review. The review forms are short; you can probably get through each of them in 5 minutes. Then send me an email (roger at schoolauction.net) and tell me you did so. If you are willing to also be a reference customer and occasionally get an email from a prospective new customer, let me know that too. Then I’ll send you a coupon code good for $100 off the organization’s next renewal.
Everyone wins - we extend our reach, our prospects get feedback from real customers, and your non-profit gets to knock $100 off their renewal fee.
