Live TV and the Multi-Channel Business Model – The Best Format
The live TV model in combination with website platform represents a truly dynamic and powerful retailing tool. Each show is well planned but has the spontaneous elements of live broadcasting which makes the shows both entertaining and engaging.
Each show is dedicated to explaining, educating and delighting the viewer, so vendors and brands can be sure that the key sales messages and product performance capabilities are fully explained and demonstrated.
Sales performance can be monitored and optimised in real time to ensure that the sales opportunity is maximised to its full potential.
The web site combination ensures that the customer has full access to all information regarding the products. As well as the ability to buy products, they provide our shoppers with live streaming of our TV shows, alongside a library of product footage, demonstrations and previous shows for shoppers to browse, learn, and help them to understand products before they buy.
