ALASKA DREAM MACHINE: an opportunity for international product exposure

Opportunity:

Home Shopping Network (HSN) has begun airing a new show, American Dreams, designed to feature entrepreneurs and their products.  The entrepreneurs are interviewed and their products are then promoted for sales on the same show. The half hour show currently airs monthly (each segment features 3 entrepreneurs).  HSN hopes to increase frequency to weekly, but currently does not have enough entrepreneurs in their pipeline to support weekly airings.
Home Shopping Network:

o   Reaches 96 million households 

o   Demographic is 52-year-old women and the gifts/purchases they might make for their husbands, parents, friends, adult children, grandchildren, other family members, etc.

o   $19.95 is the sweet spot, but items have sold successfully up to pricing of $999 each

First Step
Submit applications: Alaska Dream Application; bit.ly/AmericanDreamsAlaska; or email application to Kathryn.Dodge@SCOREVolunteer.org
