I've been working with Doug since 2007. He has proven to be a relentless agent and a very valuable person for my company. Working with QVC is not without challenges, and I am certain that without Doug I would have never even tried to sell to them, let alone complete the negotiations. Doug is well respected and well connected. If you are thinking of doing business with QVC, it’s definitely worth having Doug on your side!

Creatively Dunne, Inc.
Byers' Choice Ltd. has been using the services of Creatively Dunne-TV Sales Direct over the past three years to represent our line of handcrafted figures to QVC. During that period, Doug Dunne has helped us to manage the exposure and sales effectiveness of our unique products. We are a small US manufacturer and have appreciated Doug’s efforts to promote our products to the premiere TV sales company in the world.
Doug's knowledge and relationships within the QVC organization have helped Byers’ Choice to get our products placed with hosts that are best suited to tell our story and maximize our sales potential while limiting our risk in dealing with QVC. We believe that this exposure has helped to elevate the awareness of our brand nationally and has allowed us to offer our unique products to a much broader audience that we would have been able to reach using more traditional distribution channels.

Our company has worked with Doug since early 2006. We were a start up hair care company, pitching our product line to QVC. Doug was instrumental in the early stages, starting with development of products, to be sure we would have our best chances with QVC. He assisted myself with the pitch to the buyers, which was successful, getting the products through QA and prepping me to go on air. All very important tasks that are foreign to anyone who has not been a part of a televised retail entity.
Doug was an intricate part of the success of our line with QVC. We were grateful to have him navigate us through the many moving obstacles to successfully airing products on QVC. Doug is very knowledgeable and detail oriented. QVC is a unique culture that takes time to understand. Working with Doug allowed our company to have its best chances for survival at QVC.
I have the pleasure of knowing Doug on a personal level and I am grateful to call him a friend as well as a business partner. He is a man with great integrity and strong character. I believe his tenacity is what is needed to lead a company to success with QVC.
