MaxSold Year in Review 2020

For most of us, 2020 will be remembered as one of the most difficult years in our lifetime. Our hearts go out to everyone who has had their health or the health of a loved one, impacted by the virus. This year has given us a new appreciation for what it means to care about the health and well-being of our team, their families, our customers and the communities we serve.

In response to the tremendous challenges facing fundraisers in the charitable sector, MaxSold has suspended seller commissions to charities so they can host online no-contact auctions to replace a silent auction at a gala or in-person event. MaxSold has already raised more than $150,000 for the charitable sector. (We have an upcoming webinar if you are interested in hosting a fundraiser for a charity.)

We want to thank each and every one of our team members for showing up for work each day - managing the new risks and challenges head on. As much as we have been pushed apart, we have also been pulled together and become closer in many aspects. Team members that displayed their smiling faces to customers on site (sometimes even while getting a hug from a thankful customer) now do so through a mask and at a distance.

 

To our customers, we appreciate each and every one of you and we are thankful that you chose to support our solution in helping those in need of our services. Your commitment to improving the lives of others makes us all proud to serve our team’s purpose. We all know the difference MaxSold makes in the lives of our customers but our purpose means even more in today's climate with fewer and fewer solutions able to adapt and/or meet the requirements of the operating environment.

While this year was particularly challenging, we've overcome many hurdles in our 10-year history. We hope to serve you for several more decades...

Lots of MaxSold sellers took the environmentally conscious (and money saving) route to sell everything through MaxSold, instead of sending their perfectly good pre-owned goods to the landfill. We also save our clients money by providing an outlet to sell the goods instead of putting off downsizing indefinitely and placing them in storage (self-storage industry is $38 billion a year!)

The biggest benefit was a huge "burden of stuff" lifted from their shoulders knowing that the buyers are going to cherish their beloved items and build new memories...

 

Referrals (from previous MaxSold sellers, attorneys, real estate professionals, move managers, professional organizers, appraisers, funeral homes) and Repeat Sellers (running antique stores, flea markets, antique dealers, consignment shops and even traditional estate sale companies) were a big part of MaxSold sales in 2020. We had twelve virtual webinars, with the webinar "Ask an Expert: How to Identify, Evaluate and Sell Your Items" being the most popular.

Repeat & Referral business was more than half of MaxSold sales in 2020. To learn more about how you can partner with MaxSold, visit our Partner Page!
