Re: Confirmed-Blogs and Forum shutting down on Nov. 2nd!

Oh no...I'm really sorry to see the forums go.  I haven't watched QVC in years. The few purchases I have made over the last several years are all because of things (recommendations) made on these forums.  I am grateful to all you ladies who were so willing to share, respond and offer help and opinions here.  I wonder how this may affect future sales on the Q.

 

Personally, Facebook is not a good alternative for me.  I am not on Facebook and will not be starting now.

This is such a HUGE mistake on QVC's part.  These forums and the connections we've all made with each other through them is a large part - at least for me - of our lives and the fun we have shopping and sharing interests, ideas, and events in our lives.

 

I agree with @Shanus - there doesn't seem any logical reason for the shutdown.

WONDER IF THEY WILL TAKE REVIEWS  AWAY TOO?

TOTALLY SILENCING THE SHOPPERS.

@JudyL   I can't think of any reason to give a month's notice other than to get a read on the use of the forums. If that's true, it's manipulative.

@weezer111   I've read here that some reviews have already been missing.

I just keep seeing that scene from Pretty Woman over and over.

If only they knew/understood that these boards also increase their sales... bottom line!


I totally agree with you.

 

I don't think that they understand this at all!.

 

I am really influenced by those of you who post here, and what your reviews and opinions are of what you have purchased from here and from the sister station HSN.

 

I also read product reviews from other Q shoppers, too.

 

If anything, I personally think they should have sent out a Marketing survey to Q customers of who uses the forums, etc. That way, they would know if those customers were influenced by the forums, etc.

Can't post a pic of the banner, but it says:

 

"JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Welcome to QVC's Forums and Blogs...a great place to explore, discover, share, and shop every day".

 

Really? Then why shut it down?
