Re: Competition??

Never noticed what I would consider "competition".

If you have a job or a business, there is always competition.

If there is, I've never seen any sign of it.  I've notice they are supportive of each other.

Re: Competition??

the only competition I notice on the regular, is with the female hosts....that's all I observe as competitive.

I haven't noticed that at all. ever. I'd say it seems like they're all friends and spend time together outside of work, too.

@peanut21: I'm not sure what you mean by competition (?) Because, the very nature of any business, retailer (brick & mortar or online) TV shopping channels, etc. is to sell their product or service for financial gain.

Re: Competition??

@peanut21Absolutely no more than there would be between vendors who sell elsewhere. -

 

Just because there are quite a few shopping channels doesn't mean you have to watch them all!  

 

You'll probably shop less and shop better if you limit what you choose to watch.

@peanut21 

 

I think there is competition between vendors with similar items on the same channel..but not in the clothing category,  but other categories......

 

One time a flameless candle vendor made a snarky remark that you knew was directed towards another brand that had been on earlier......  I did not like that at all....just give the attributes and benefits of your product no need to get snarky about a competitor....

 

I think also in kitchen cookware there is competition between brands, each wants to do well in sales.....So to me its awkward to see Cook Essentials and then Geoffrey Zakarin, then All Clad LeCrueset etc etc....And there was an awkward moment on the Gourmet Holiday Food Shows with several vendors selling candy.....and a couple of vendors selling steaks....

 

Thats why BOTH the buyers and programmers need to be careful about their product lineup....And Im sure its awkward for the host to discuss the attributes of why one was better when earlier they just presented a similar product that had the same or similar attributes...
