How we started

Initially a print publication – 1 million copies inserted into the Caxton weeklies, the focus of The Auctioneer was to bring all auctions into one singular presentation for prospective buyers to view at the same time. With the interest in print advertising waning, we began to morph into a website collection of auctions in 2012 while aggressively growing our database subscriptions.

Digital auction classifieds & mailers

Now, our focus is still the same, to bring all auction offerings together for the buyer to browse – from a trusted source. Only our medium has changed, we have a weekly listing mailer as well as exclusive mailer options catering to a wide variety of auction categories.

Our position as a trusted source is clear in the response rate to our mailers, and the quality of those responses. With an open rate upwards of 6,5% and a consistent flow of enquiries, The Auctioneer database delivers.

To support our database offering, we dynamically include creative Google Adwords and Social Media campaigns to drive SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

Full service design agency

As a full turnkey design agency, we can place and design print adverts, create catalogues and boards and, should it be required, create a full Corporate Identity from logos to websites. Go to Services

In recent years, we have also introduced an online auction platform to our stable of brands and have effectively provided support for auction events (live, live online, timed online or a combination) from conception to collection. Go to OnlineAuctions.Africa
