Last night I dreamed that my product got accepted on QVC and I was there in the studio shooting a live segment. Everything sold out and as I was walking down the hall I saw Hulk Hogan and Venus Williams getting ready to go on a sell their products too. I was crazy and very surreal.
There's a PR company called Western Creative Inc. that claims they have a direct line and long standing relationship with buyers at QVC and can get results if your product if it's a fit. I too have been looking at them and other reps. I've also been creating a dialogue with manufacturers regarding protoyping, creating masters and production costs for my product.
I found a website called launchmyline.com. I learned a lot and have gained a new found confidence. I finally came to the conclusion after having that dream, that I'm just going to pitch directly to QVC. You can go to their website and download the submission guidelines and application. Print it all out and look it over before filling it out online.
Hope to see you on QVC some day soon.
As an onair guest host and rep for the last 12 years, there are so many things you should be aware of and know before you move forward. QVC is a glorious place, but there is much to know when it comes to managing your way through this home shopping giant. We have helped many people small and large market their products on QVC. Although some people have posted that you can post on your own, many people who have tried to do it on their own will tell you it easier said than done. You can easily get lost in all the details or never get any response at all. It's a network and it helps to have an inside connection. Many people claim to be QVC reps, but the truth is there are only about a dozen plus companies that are truely "live-in" reps. What does that mean, it means that many people claim to sell into QVC, but don't have the connections, exposure or network to make the process easy for you. We specialize ONLY in QVC and so we are on location meeting with buyers or onair every single week and even everyday at times. I suggest that anyone interested seriously consider a "household" rep and interview a few of us. Make a decision on the best partnership for you and your business. There is so much to share and many risks, but to the risk taker goes the rewards! Diana
