Frequently Asked Questions
is the Difference Between Special Auctions and Featured Auctions?
Featured Auctions (FA) - The Sale Bill is
professionally prepared and presented on B&B.
- Pictures are altered, enhanced, sized and presented
throughout the sale bill in the areas of text where the items are described.
- Each auctioneers’ sale bill Internet presentation at
the top, at the bottom and on the edges is specifically prepared and
designed to be unique to that particular auctioneer.

Banner pages and Homepage that click directly to each sale bill.

Featured Auctions Calendar Page.

listing is hand prepared and on the Internet at B&B within hours of its
submission to B&B.

referred to as websites by some consolidators), (d) have a Business Banner

of utilizing the Special Auction part of biddersandbuyers.com will be explained
here in the near future.
2. What does the New
biddersandbuyers.com website seem more desirable and usable to auction buyers
than does Auction Zip and most all other auction advertising websites?
Because it was designed for the auction buyers to get what
they want simply and quickly whether they be new to computers and the Internet
or they be old hands at it. Second, because it was designed to be attractive,
informative, mildly entertaining and non-boring. Third, because it is not a
clutter of related and unrelated advertising, that confuse and irritate the
auction buyer. Fourth, because it was designed to serve the auction industry’s
customer as opposed to being designed to make money for the auctioneer, the sale
holders and the website owner. Customers, Sale Buyers, come first;
Sellers, auctioneers, sale holders, and website owners come second.
3. Why does the
biddersandbuyers.com website have both Featured Auctions (FA) and Special
Because auctioneers are like all other segments of
society. Some realize the value to their customers (auction buyers) and
themselves of first class advertising, promotion, customer service, employee
care, unique programs and offerings and branding. On the other hand some
believe that doing the least possible (which in most cases means "doing what I’ve
always done and spending the least dollars possible") is sufficient.
Approximately 200 auctioneers hold over 90 percent of the auctions held annually
in Illinois. The first question of those 200 is hardly ever, “What does it cost?” The
first question of the other 2800 is - - “How much does it cost.” There is
a difference, among auctioneers with respect to customer service, sales
knowledge and goals in life. That's the reason 200 to 400 auctioneers out
of 3000 hold the vast majority of all auctions.
If biddersandbuyers.com is going to serve the auction
industry’s customers (auction buyers) we have to service both types of
auctioneers. FA sale bills are professional, all have Banners that click to the
sale bill and cost money. SA sale bills are free, self entered via the
auctioneer’s least expensive means and give the sale buyers information in a
manner those SA auctioneers deem adequate. Then again, for the customers’
benefit, biddersandbuyers.com comes along and gathers up all the rest and emails
them to the auction industry’s customers, free of charge for now - - Compliments
of Bidders and Buyers.com.
4. What is the
difference between Featured Auctioneers and Special Auctioneers?
Special Auctioneers do whatever they choose, whenever they
choose, the way they choose. They self enter their material, their material
appears as they give it to us or some other auction website. Some B&B products utilized by Featured
Auctioneers are available to Special Auctioneers and some are not. Special
Auctioneers sales have an Auction Announcement on B&B whether they self enter it
or not. Their sale bills are emailed to auction buyers free of charge if
requested - - Compliments of bidders and buyers.com - - no matter what they look
like or where they are published on the Internet. Remember Bidders and
Buyers.com serves the auction buyers first. We are very certain, the buying
public will, at an ever increasing rate, chose auctioneers and auctions to
patronize based upon the professionalism and services offered. Refer above to
the Featured Auctions portion of the answer to Frequently Asked Questions #1 to
see the specific differences between what Featured Auctions Auctioneers do as
compared to what Special Auction Auctioneers provide in the world of whatever –
whenever – however. You the Auction Buyers are in charge; let the auctioneer
know your opinion.
