Going digital may be hard to imagine possible in the auction world, an industry that dates back further than the 18th Century, however many companies have been adapting the old business model to suit the current climate. Seasoned art and antique collectors of all stripes (and generations) are browsing online catalogues, registering to bid online, and placing bids via apps and websites—and not just on middle-market items. So, catering to a clientele that would rather scroll and tap than pick up a phone or raise a paddle is now a core component of any forward-thinking auction house’s business strategy today.
And now more than ever, companies are sharing their services digitally, while people practice social distancing to help flatten the curve during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Here is how Roseberys can help you from a distance.
