Televised and Online Business Promotion Opportunity with the Rotary Community Auction.
The Rotary Community Auction, held every year in November/December, provides an fantastic, and very cost-effective, opportunity for promotion via the donation of gift certificates for items or services.
From November to December, the auction website will be open for bidding, with the grand finale televised on CKWS.
Businesses can have their logo, a description of their business and a link to their website advertised for a full month on the site. Plus, for items with a value of $250 or more, the business and gifted items are advertised on CKWS during the auction grand finale, which is broadcast from Brockville to Belleville, as well as on satellite.

For professionals whose services do not lend themselves to a gift certificate, for example, Real Estate Agents or Financial Advisors, many existing participants in the auction in those lines of businesses donate a gift certificate for another service, for instance to a restaurant or sports tickets. They still get their own logo displayed on the site, their name, a brief description of their business and a link to their own website.
Every year, we undertake a significant amount of pre-auction marketing on television, on the radio, in print and on-line, all with the aim to drive traffic to the auction website. Also, as bidders on the site are “outbid”, they receive an automatic notification from us that they are no longer the highest bidder and that they should go back to the site to increase their bid.
If you are interested in this opportunity to let the Kingston community, and beyond, know about your business, please contact:

Thank you in advance for your generous contributions in support of Rotary and the many well deserving charities that we support.
