HSN is launching a nationwide search seeking out the cleverest creators, designers, brands, and product innovators. The shopping network is actively searching for items that meet their high standards in the fashion, beauty, electronics, culinary, and home categories.
To know if a product might be a good fit for HSN, it should meet several key criteria, including being demonstrable through live or produced content, filling white space in HSN’s current assortment, making life easier for consumers, having broad appeal, being innovative, and having a unique founder’s story.
The shopping network added that it prefers to partner with products that are making their debut on HSN or are entirely exclusive to the network.
“This exclusivity gives the products we feature an inherent compelling angle that we can bring to life through storytelling across our multiplatform network,” the network said in a statement.
Registration for the HSN Product Search event kicked off June 27 and will close July 25. All applicants must first register on RangeMe.com. HSN requires prospective vendors to review all cost considerations for doing business with HSN (including platform funding, samples, and scrap agreements), and they must meet and follow the Qurate Retail Group Global Business Partner Code of Conduct.
Submissions will be reviewed by HSN’s buying teams. Candidates making the cut will receive an invite to pitch their product during the week of September 12 via a 15-minute virtual meeting.
