Recently I ordered some earrings that were an advanced order and won't be shipped till August.  I don't mind waiting, but I want those earrings. Most of her merch is not my taste, but I do love her earrings. I hope her business can survive, but it must be tough going it alone.


@QVCkitty1 ...Lisa does have some pretty earrings and I am sure you will love them once you receive them.  I think Lisa started doing alot of "advanced orders" lately because she doesn't want to get stuck with merchandise that doesn't sell.  Some items, I am sure, she can do "advanced order", but alot she can't.

 

I wish her success too....but I feel sad her sales have really declined lately.  Even the daily response from the "tribe" have declined. No one seems to post much anymore.  I think this is why she is going to start "selling things live".  She said during the chat that she would see how this goes.

 

She has been in business for herself for 5 years.  They say the real test of a successful business will be during years 5-10.  We shall see.  I wonder sometimes if she ever regrets leaving the Q...she seems to be doing the same thing as she did at the Q only now doing it all by herself with all the expenditures along with it.




@kittykatkay  I doubt that "they sa 5-10 years" you mentioned takes in having a pandemic.

She must want to be as successful as Albany Irwin, selling Italian pices on HQShop. Albany brings more Italian jewelry than the few pieces LR will show. 

LR kept her business from expanding. She thought it would be so with the groupies she had from the Q. That can't go on. 


@febe1 ...Well, I was one of the original tribe members, but I'm not a "groupie"...but alot of us has dropped off in posting and buying lately.  I'm not on FB as much as I was in the past and it's not as fun as it used to be.

 

Maybe Lisa could come back to the Q or go to HSN or HQ Shop as a vendor, if it doesn't work out in the future.  Afterall, like you stated, Albany is a vendor at HQ Shop and Lisa Mason is a vendor now on the Q. Just a thought.

@Pearlee ...you could be right.  I didn't think of that.

Re: Lisa Robertson is trying something new

I was watching her a bit tonight, but she was speed talking for some reason.  I had to turn it off, couldn't understand her anyway.

My regard for Lisa increased exponentially when she featured lovely Antoinella in a video recently. I hope she sells out on whatever she is doing on her FB and other channels and platforms. She stuck by her buddy Smiley Happy

Re: Lisa Robertson is trying something new

I enjoyed watching/listening to her chats since she went on this new adventure.  Many of her items are beautiful but I  have yet to purchase something since the prices are rather expensive. Changing things up a bit might help heighten the live watching interest.   Maybe adding a guest to speak about the items or a model to show the clothing live would be a good idea as well.

I wonder if the first 5 minutes will be spent trying to figure out if they are live or not live as in "are we up yet?" Then scrolling and scrolling with her cell phone and fiddling with her tv remote controls and saying "wait for it, wait for it" then adjusting her camera angle... till finally they get underway.

 

5 years and they still only get rolling smoothly once in a blue moon. 

 

She does have some lovely jewelry pieces, all of course couture inspired, but some of the tops she sells with the mile wide lace sleeves and frou frou bottoms and pom poms and such don't sell that well. And modeled with her badly shredded jeans are just too much. 

 

Her ace in the hole seems to be her Christmas stuff, some of which is really unique and beautiful. It usually sells well but this year who knows what with people cutting back. Hopefully those Christmas in July sales will keep her in the black.
