So, I recently chatted it up with my old friend Brian Rechtman, the Founder & CEO of BlueTree Marketing—a company that offers non-profit organizations and schools an online alternative to live silent auctions. Brian and I have known each other since we were just kids and I’ve been privileged to watch his company grow into what it is today! BlueTree has created a platform to effectively run online charity auctions in order to increase starting bids for live silent auctions or even better…replace them all together. So just to clarify, this can save nonprofits from having to set up big bulky events that require time, money, resources and instead allows them to engage donors in an interactive online setting—hmmm, sounds like an auctioneer’s utopia! For all of our readers who work with a cancer organization, make sure to look these guys up and see how they can help you.
Their flagship service, ‘BlueTree Online Auction,’ not only offers nonprofits and schools a quick and easy way to raise funds, but also helps them to reach a broader audience – giving nonprofits the chance to develop new donors. Organizations earn an average of $4 for every $1 they invest – an astounding 300% return on their investment which is why BlueTree Marketing has become the cost effective leader in online auction fundraising nationwide.
BlueTree Marketing has also developed a community for cause-minded individuals called ‘Bid2Care’ (Bid2Care.com), a philanthropic community that is the perfect place to shop with ease for popular and exclusive items at discounted prices. The proceeds go to charitable organizations and schools across the country. BlueTree Marketing has worked with numerous health related organizations to increase their fundraising revenue. Some of these organizations include: ALS Association American Federation for Aging Research Center for Faith and Health Initiatives Human Services Coalition National MS Society Oak Grove Center The BlueTree Marketing team does a fantastic job of treating every nonprofit/school they work with utmost importance—and making them feel one of a kind! So be sure to check these guys out and keep them on your radar. Also, if you are looking for popular and exclusive items at bargain based prices, check out Bid2Care. I guarantee you will find it empowering to get a great deal while helping out nonprofit organizations and schools across the country.
