Why do they need THREE people to sell a $10 item?

Post by Ena » 1 year ago

I'm watching Friday sale. There are THREE people selling a $10 item.
It just doesn't make sense. How can it be worth paying THREE hosts to sell a cheap item?
What am I missing?

Ena:... they don’t need 2 people three Fourths the time. Then they could charge less. 🥴

The gaggle of hosts is realllllly getting on my nerves,
plus the phone calls....... I used to like Cindy, now she
won't go away!!!
I don't know why ONE host is not enough?!!!
I wonder how the hosts really feel about that too??

Sales strategy:. Maybe there is one host you prefer over another
That you would be persuaded to buy the product from.

It has been mentioned in this forum , there are hosts that are liked more than others...J m o

Sales strategy: But there are about 10 hosts I prefer not to buy from and can't stand to watch so they are shooting themselves in the foot by having 2 or 3 at a time.

I think it is ego. It seems to me that the "executives" love to just pop on camera because they can. One in particular seems to consider himself quite a showman. You don't see that on the more professional channels, where there is usually one selling jewelry, and sometimes two. You also don't see the other channels constantly attempting to wear you down with excessively long presentations. I'm trying to see jewelry, not support hose, coloring books and masks anyway.

I think you are right. I never saw "management" constantly on the air on any other shopping networks. Do they really think it brings more value or authority to the presentations? IMO it cheapens it, makes the channel look much less professional. Seems they don't care at all. Well, if their profits go up why would they?
