Over the years, the auction industry has seen a huge shift to the digital world. This is certainly true since the start of the pandemic, where more and more auction events have been held online. As online auctions become increasingly popular in the future, it’s time for auction companies to stay up with their competition and shift digitally as well.
One aspect that is important for all auction companies is website design and accessibility. When potential buyers attend an online auction, they want to find a website that looks good and is easy to navigate.
At InnovA, we offer website and marketing services in addition to our back-end auction management software. We understand how badly your customers value website design and accessibility, and are here to help. Below, we explain why it’s important that all auction companies have a well designed website that is easy to navigate for their potential buyers!
The benefits of a well designed website are endless. Here are a few reasons why all auction companies should focus on their website design.
Like pretty much everything in this world, first impressions are everything. This is especially true for websites. If your website looks outdated or unappealing, your audience may have an immediate negative impression, which doesn't make them want to stay on your site. However, a well designed website will catch the eye of your audience and promote them to stay on your site longer and create a better user experience.
Another reason why website design is important is that it creates a brand image for your business. Your website is one of the first things someone will look at when they hear about your brand. When designing your auction website, it’s important that you are being consistent in using brand colors and logos throughout your site. Not only does this look appealing but will also help customers remember your brand!
In a time where technology has made life much easier, everyone expects convenience. The same is true for online auctions, which is why companies need to focus on making their website as convenient for their customers as they can! Convenience is the one thing that drives many bidders to your online auctions, so making your website as easy as you can for them will go a long way in creating the best experience for your customers.
As technology continues to shape the auction industry, it’s vital that companies are using it to their advantage. At InnovA, we understand how important website design is, and how it can help increase your profits. That is why we offer our back-end software on top of our marketing and web design services, so you can have everything you need in one organized place! By being able to access information from anywhere, as well as provide your customers with innovative website content and design, you can save time and increase your profits.

As our team begins to make our shift to InnovA, I just want to send a note of gratitude. Since beginning conversations with InnovA about transitioning to your software and auction platform, I’ve been blown away by the responsiveness to our needs as a company. The software you’ve built is already miles ahead of other industry competitors and even though I believe there’s always room for improvement, your team’s willingness to listen and adapt to our specific needs, as well as the areas we believe from experience are important to other similar auction companies, is welcomed with gratitude. Our industry landscape is quickly evolving and as such, we have to be responsive as a company to those changes. Having a software partner that is ready and willing to adapt with us is paramount.
