ADVERTISING & AUCTION MARKETING

Most of the time items at auction are simple general merchandise everybody has a use for. So maybe there is not a need for expansive advertising coverage. But then, there are those key items that are hard to find, rare and desire a particular group or individual to buy. In this event marketing that piece becomes more of a challenge. Simply put- there is a need to broadan the scope of advertising and contacts by using larger newspapers or publications even specialized mail list. Merritt auctioneers have the resources and know how to accomplish this.
