Methods of Marketing
Your surplus is marketed across traditional and digital mediums to get the most exposure.
As soon as your item is listed on Municibid, it is automatically listed on the Facebook Shop as well. The Facebook Shop is one of the largest marketplaces for used goods.
We regularly send emails with recommended items based on bidders’ preferences. 28% of our emails are opened by bidders vs 9-15% industry average open rate.
From Facebook ads to Google ads, your surplus is featured where your bidders are. We can target people by location and interests, so your surplus is in front of the most qualified bidders.
Whether your local news station or international TV, our PR experts spread the news about your surplus. For example, a radio interview by The Bruce St. James Show on WLS-AM 890 Chicago resulted in a 350% increase in user registrations.
From posts, chats, to groups, we’re always growing our bidder community and giving your surplus the maximum exposure on social media, including Facebook and Instagram.
Our marketing team shares your items on category specific marketplaces. For example, heavy equipment listings are posted on Construction Equipment Guide, My Little Salesman, and more.
We provide insights to our audience on bidding tips, car buying, and more so they can make the best decisions. A well-informed bidder is a better bidder and helps decrease bidder defaults.
We put your surplus in the hands of bidders with postcards, letters, etc. Even for bidders who aren’t tech savvy with social media, your surplus is being seen by them too with direct mailings
