Great Opportunity For Me!!!

Hello fellow cheffers,
I just had a great opportunity fall into my lap. I HAD TO SHARE!!! I have definitely been getting out of my comfort zone and so I have been emailing everyone I can left and right.
Local Real estate agents, caterers, kids resale shops where I advertise, and daycares where I advertise.
Well yesterday I emailed as many contributing journalists that write articles for my local newspaper in hopes I could get the HWC press release in a story or something.
Well someone called me back from a TV show that comes out in my city in the morning. Kind of like a "Good morning America" in a smaller scale for my city.
The lady said she would love to see some products or a website. I sent her to the website and she loved the products. She asked me to pick my top 10 products that I think are unique and definitely something everyone should have in their kitchen.
I sent her the list I attached in this message. Anyway she called back and said that there is a new segment coming out on the show about UNIQUE PRODUCTS!! She said she will see if they would like to get these products on the show because she really liked them!!
I immediately called HO and they told me that it was totaly legal as long as I don't come out on TV showing the products (I don't do TV :eek: ) and as long as they don't say my name. The lady at HO said this is a very interesting question because everyone that calls wants to come out on TV, but I was the first one who called that didn't!!!
AND .....
They can say "To find out how to get these great products, log on to our TV station website or call the station"
And from there they will give out my email address and info!!
I AM SO EXCITED!!! I REALLY HOPE THIS GOES THROUGH!! I WILL LET YOU ALL KNOW!! I just got a new website yesterday to accomodate all the new orders I hope to be getting and to increase sales with my hosts shows!! It will keep me from running to the post office and mailing out tons of catalogs or running around to people's homes to give order forms and catalogs!!!
PRAY FOR ME!!!
Debbie

It' too hard to just pick 10!

Looks good, but I'd change it up a bit to inlcude something from stoneware (everyone LOVES our stoneware) and cookware. Try to hit all the price-points (inexpensive all the way to cookware) You've got 2 micro items - maybe just pick the rice cooker since it will 'do it all. I've got a top list that someone gave me somewhere, when i find it, I'll post it for you.

Congrats!

I agree with Linda, you should add some cookware and stoneware!! You will be reaching an audience with who knows how much buying potential!! You want to target our higher priced items for maximum sales!!! Yes, selling 10 Microfiber towls is great, but wouldn't selling 10 Family Skillets be better????

Congrats on your great opportunity!!! I see this as a great opportunity for the whole company because you are giving us all great exposure to a potentially new customer base!!! You go girl!!!

Got to have stoneware since many stores do not sell any. I'd remove the apple wedger (it's neat but you can buy them in the grocery store) and one of the micro items so that you have room for stoneware and cookware (which is the first titanium-based cookware on the market - that's unique)....Good luck.

Also mention Good Housekeeping Approval......

Food Chopper and BBQ Basting Brush/Bottle, were both giving GREAT reviews by Good Housekeeping, that alone speaks VOLUMES!!

I'd also make sure I put, COOKWARE, Stoneware, and even Simple Additions in there!!

Well I mentioned that...

Well I mentioned that about the cookware and the stoneware since they are big sellers and more expensive but she said that she wanted some unique tools and gadgets since the segment is called:
Unique products and gadgets
So I tried but if they come to my website to search for things, they will be able to see everything on their own.
And I will definitely mention when I get to speak with the leads and answer emails.
Cookware and stoneware are really neat items and I always mention them but she wanted items she could easily show during the segment on the air and maybe even demonstrate.
How NEAT! I am so excited!!

What about the ultimate slice & grate? Maybe the chef's tongs - maybe it's just me but I haven't seen the chef's tong anywhere and almost everyone has non-stick. Tongs are so handy but the ones at the store are not good for non-stick. Just my 2 cents.
By the way - CONGRATULATIONS - I hope this goes through for you. Good job on getting the word out. You should be very proud of your efforts.

It may be because I am pregnant and eating pudding almost every day, but I think the Nylon Spiral Whisk is the coolest gadget EVER! You can make pudding in the pan without scratching up your pots and pans! I also love the Suds Pump, but some people have said they have had problems with it. I agree with Shano, the chillzanne products are really cool and unique.

I second (or third) the chillzane suggestion. Most people at my shows don't know these products exist. I always bring the large bowl frozen and the rectangle or sectional (whichever I am not using for food) thawed so people can pass it around and hear the goo inside. This seems to get everyone's attention!
