Want to sell, take a look at Bid.tv and watch and listen to Peter Simon. I watched in awe as he shifted some wonderful memorabilia for Liverpool Football Club. He talked with love of the best team in the world and I almost put in a bid. You only realise how good he is by watching some of the other presenters. Get your free lesson most evenings between 19:00 and 22:00. Like so many people who make things look easy, he must put in a lot of homework. Being a top presenter, apparently they all work on commission, he probably gets choice of products. Andy Hodgson is The Boss and both have been with the channel for seven years or more. Listen how Peter uses his catch phrases “You need to buy this; you need to buy this now!” and “Absolute nonsense buy!”.
Then get out a calculator and work out the hourly turnover. Andy Hodgson said that Bid.tv and associated channels send out 11million parcels each year at a minimum P+P of £7.99. They are all part of the Virgin group and I wonder why they do not use the Virgin brand.
And the joys of the buyer when the neighbours see the parcels arrive but that is always true of home shopping! It is great for those who cannot get out and about easily but it does take a lot of watching to get the bargains. Then, after the thrill of the chase, what do you do with your new toys?
