Suggestions, take them or leave them.

 

  • Stop with all the phony hugging and kissing.
  • Stop interrupting your guests when they are speaking.
  • Stop interrupting the host when they are trying to do their jobs, which is to sell your product.
  • Stop with the cutesy, made up language.
  • Stop with all the personal stories, once in awhile is fine but no need to go on and on and on.
  • Wear clothes that are on air appropriate, some of you look like you're ready to run Saturday afternoon errands.
  • Stop grabbing for the food like you haven't eaten in days.
  • Stop talking with your mouth full.

I'm sure I've missed a few things, but it's a start.

(Psst let's see how long before this disappears.)


@Snowhite714 Sounds like you should apply for a hosting job!

Who says she doesn't ?  There is always room for improvement, no system is perfect. 


@QVCkitty1 - Yes, there is always room for improvement.  That said, much of what she is advising them to "stop" is what the producers see increases sales and tells the host/vendor to continue doing it.  The producers immediate insight to what is working and what isn't.  She's got "opinion" on her side.

I take your point, I just think that sometimes short term solutions don't always translate into long term gains.

As far as QVC is concerned, anything a host or vendor wants to do on air is between the host or the vendor and QVC.

 

I'm sure they don't give Ratatouille's posterior what anyone else thinks.

I agree with the "cutesy made up language".

You're right, no system is perfect.

Re: On-air etiquette

[ Edited ]

That is one version of appropriate.  Everyone else has a similar to a very different version of appropriate.  Too many people expect others to behave (ie: dress) and think the way they want them too.   The only one you can control is you.  No one has the right to expect another person, let alone a stranger, to dress, behave, think, the way they want them to.
