The internet plays a larger role in marketing, and at Jersey Marketing Service (JMS) we find no exception. Were you aware of all the online marketing opportunities available with JMS?
ONLINE AUCTION PROGRAMS:
Jersey Bid – an online sale program, assisting in the marketing of live cattle, embryos, and semen. Monthly consignment auctions are traditionally scheduled to run from the third Monday until 1:30 p.m. (EST) on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Horse Race Style Closing is the close out method used.
Register for a bidder number at www.jerseybid.com if you have not signed up since September 2013. This is a one time registration process.
Pricing is available to host your state sale, a specialty sale, or a herd inventory reduction sale on Jersey Bid.
Jersey Auction Live – This program couples a LIVE broadcast of sales with LIVE Bidding through the internet. In addition to many other sales where Jersey Auction Live has played a part, JMS was honored to host the first all-virtual sale in the Jersey breed at our National Heifer Sale in 2013.
Sale cattle can be sold in a live auction environment with the consignments live or on a pre-recorded video. Register for a bidder number at http://jms.usjersey.com/jerseyauctionlive/. This is a one time registration process.
Strict internet service needs and program pricing is available from JMS, allowing you to have Jersey Auction Live at your next sale.
Jersey Bid and Jersey Auction Live DO NOT use the same bidder numbers. You must register under both programs to participate.
Jersey Classifieds – a free listing for your cattle, embryos or semen. This is used to bring buyers and sellers together by allowing them to browse the listings around their area.
