Shawn Killinger: The Good, The Bad, The Skunky

3 hours ago, Taffy Apple said:

Sharon is always dressed nicely, nails look manicured, shows enthusiasm for the products, isn't mean to models/OAPs/other hosts, subs for others, is usually vertical; but let's keep Shittish who is totes doin' it for the bucksh.

Color me confused as well. Sharon could be a little over the top with her foodgasms during Gourmet Holiday, but she was always pleasant and presented herself well. I don't understand this hold Shawn has over QVC that allows her to get away with such unprofessional behavior. Imagine a client or customer coming into your job and you telling them "I don't care if you do business with us or not. I get paid either way." How long do you think you'd still be working there? It's mind boggling.

Shawn seems to be QVC’s version of John Gotti, the Teflon Don - nothing sticks.

Shawn: “I don’t really care if you buy this hair dryer or not. I’m salaried, I don’t get any commission on this. I hope you get it for your hair, but I don’t really care if you buy it.”

Strangest sales pitch I’ve heard in a while...

Not defending Skunk but Heidi Williams always pulls this on JTV.

Heidi's favorite refrain is "It doesn't matter to me if you buy this ring or not, I have no skin in this game"

I think it's truly a marketing game. Or strategy.

You may be right, but I think it’s a piss-poor one. It doesn’t motivate me to buy.

@Booney and everyone who just replied about this tactic, eventually it will catch up.

There's new blood coming in, including  one experienced host,  she could be surpassed easily with that attitude, and

Marketing strategy for sure.

Heidi has the additional benefit of being married to one of JTV's founders.

They think they're being transparent, but it's just the opposite.

I thought is was sister Wendy who was married to a founder? I get those two mixed up all the time.

@Coffeecup, it's easy to get confused with those Williams girls, but Heidi is the one married to the JTV bigshot.  She's got a devilishly calming voice which no doubt lulls susceptible viewers into buying almost anything.   Wendy, on the other hand, makes for very difficult listening.  Sounds like a honking goose.

Eventually they did manage to stick it to Gotti, so her time is coming.

Yesterday she was going on and on with the Skechers OAP about how much she loves thanksgiving leftovers. I'm sure she meant the wine.

The little girl behavior is really starting to get on my nerves.  The head tilting, the clapping her hands like a two year old, the little girl voice and the demeaning way she talks to the viewers and OAP's.  I hate when I'm looking at something online and she's the one in the video.  Move along shawn, you're toast!

If you need a hook to sell your junk, it's not worth a damn.

And she seems to be adopting the sales "technique" discussed earlier. 

With the Skechers TSV she said not buying it was no skin off her back.

Basically,  giving the middle finger to shoppers... .she doesn't care if you don't order when she's on, because she'll be fine.

This situation if she continues it really is totally Effed-Up.

It's also a damned lie since hosts ARE scored on sales numbers. They do care and care very much. Shawn seemed VERY salty at Doris Dalton the other day for not getting the launch of some Doll 10 product. Why do u think she was so salty? Because some massive # of the product had ALREADY sold hours before Shawn's Shit Show lol which takes away from her precious Shit Show numbers. Had the product launched during SSS, Shawn would have gotten the sales and the credit for those sales. Doris was schmoozing her telling her she loves her but at the end of the day we know what it comes down to... $$$$ and Doris doesn't give a shit about Shawn's Shit Show, she just wants to make her own sales.

 

If the hosts  don't give a damn, why don't they all just be quiet for a few secs and let the product sell itself. Better yet, do away with hosts all together lol.

This is starting to anger me. if they don't care, then by all means go away. Set up the product and see if it sells itself because I don't need a host or oap essentially telling me they're "just there so they won't get fined" lol

This tickles me every time I come in here LOLOLOL. Why do I feel as if she's seen it and has it saved to her phone or computer LMAOOOOOOO?

Actually Shawn rhymes with Don depending on how u pronounce it, so it could say the The Teflon Shawn LOL.

Robot selling comes to mind.  Shopping online has become very popular because it's much easier than going out.  If these sellers keep on insulting us, being silly, etc. more and more will go to the sites and do their shopping there without the interference of sorting through all the shananigans in order to decide if they want to buy the item.

If we have to depend on some company's pillow to save us from "terrible times", we might as well just bend over and kiss our asses goodbye. ?

What really aggravates me about her on-air behavior is her unprofessionalism. As someone who dealt with the public, it appalls me.

If we all see this I really wonder why don't the higher ups do NOT see this? My SIL loves her and I used to enjoy her but not anymore...then I told her why.

My SIL  said she doesn't see those traits in Shawn...but she did say "she gets all calm and serious when selling jewelry items"

I said it is because it's her own stuff or she helped design it.. thus she's a now a star and comes off calm and more serious wanting us to really get into it and BUY.

@Benji Agree and that PLW line is so silly IMHO.. Shawn kisses that woman's a$$ in Macy's window every time I see them on. I bet ya she is doing so to get her own design on one of her products one day...inching her way in doing it so insidiously.

@SnowDazed I bet she does peek here one day....who could resist? I'm sure at least someone in her family must have made a visit here if she doesn't. I can picture them taking screen shots of Booney's classics and sharing them. Can u imagine?!

Here outside o' Philly we would say Shawn in the the opposite way of Don, that's more like Cali accent or Midwest maybe?

Don't like that strong Philly accent so many of us have, some are so strong it's not esthetically sounding at all lol!

Yup, I'm a Queens gal and of course the aw in Shawn had a pretty hard sound. But since I moved upstate my Queens accent wore off so Shawn and don rhyme almost lol.

@BitterApple funny my SIL whose 14 years older then me loves her, maybe it's an age thing? naaa 

BUT did say she hated her food shows and how awful she eats on tv lol.

I said "like she's having "foodgasims?" she chuckled sheepishly...yeah!" tee hee

I hear you and do not get it as far as Shawn still being on prime time and hows she has been.

It has been more so since this baby came into her life..just something I've personally noted.

Maybe she doesn't want to be on Q it kinda shows DUH. I always mention here on the forum why don't the higher ups take notice have they no eyes or sense? (well when DV wears that fat vest and looks like Santa I guess they dont have eyes to stop the man before heading on stage! Even in Q product reviews you see people slipping in complaints about her.. how she yaps but doesn't talk about the presentations...and this is on the reviews. Something is seriously wrong I am sure they get letters all the time about her and sadly she was on I enjoyed!

OMG, she quite literally looks like a pig in this photo.  No offense to actually piggies anywhere.  In fact, real pigs are cuter.
