By now, we’re sure you’ve heard our little company’s BIG news: we’re moving to HSN! We have received so many messages of excitement, encouragement, and congratulations on our switch to HSN. We’ve received about as many messages with questions (most of which we answered during a Facebook Live Q&A). We are humbled at the outpouring of love. We only get one chance to make a successful first impression with HSN, and our nerves are starting to get the better of us. But you guys are the reason we’ve grown this far, and your support keeps us calm. You’ve cheered us on a race around the world, you’ve tidied up Beekman shelves in stores around the country, you’ve come to all of our village festivals…you’re the reason we’ve been able to grow a thriving business in a small rural town.
We hope that during our Facebook Live Q&A, we were able to answer most of your questions, and then some. If there is anything we didn’t answer, you can always reach us on Facebook! The two of us try to answer each and every comment that comes through. You can also watch the replay of the Q&A below.
Where are you going?
We are moving to HSN and our first show is July 31st. Check out our list of products and the amazing brand video HSN put together for us, here: https://www.hsn.com/shop/beekman-1802/19090
Why did you leave Evine?
Our goal is to make as many people happy as possible. The reason we made the decision to leave Evine is because as you guys know, over the last several years, Evine has been a tremendous partner. We would not be here without their help. They are tremendous at helping to grow brand new brands that otherwise would not be able to get their start. We are eternally grateful to Evine. It was a very hard decision, but one of the biggest challenges for us is the amount of time we spent away from the farm – the source of inspiration for everything we do. For every 3-4 days we were on Evine, we would have to travel a couple of days early for setup, meetings, etc. which would then turn into a week. And during some months, we would have two appearances on Evine which meant two weeks or so away from the farm and that just got to be a lot for us. If we are not at the farm, we cannot continue to post the beautiful pictures you all love on social media. We can’t keep coming up with the ideas and formulations for new products. We had to find the best solution that would give us back the quality of life at the farm, but that also enabled us to connect with a lot of neighbors. We still love all of our friends at Evine. By us moving away from Evine, another little brand will now have the opportunity of a lifetime.
Are you doing a lot of new Christmas items?
Oh yes, we will have the holiday bounty boxes and seasonal bounty boxes. Everything that you loved on Evine, you will have on HSN, except even better because it is free shipping on beauty products.
Are the goats coming with you to HSN?
Where would we be without the baby goats? Of course, they’re coming. One thing that people don’t know is that we don’t bring our own baby goats. We actually work with a goat farm local to the studio for our appearances.
Are you going to be selling a lot of new things on HSN?
We have been using our time this summer to develop new products and new ideas for all of you. One of the things we’ve been working with HSN on is how to bring some of our local artisan-made items to HSN. It gives our local artisans an opportunity to sell on a big platform, which we could never figure out the logistics of with Evine. We are really excited about that.
Will you also be selling on QVC?
That’s a great question! They are owned by the same company as HSN but are two separate brands. A presence on QVC is not up to us, but who knows what the future will bring.
Will there be more men-specific products on HSN?
This is on the chore list, but we do try to make all of our advanced skincare items unisex.
Already checked out HSN but did not see sets like on Evine (lip balms, face wipes, etc.)
They’re coming. We are all working hard at getting all the inventory up on their website.
What is your favorite soap scent?
Will your website still be up?
Oh yes! You can always order special and exclusive items that you’ll only find on shop.beekman1802.com.
Will you continue the Limited-Edition Beekman Cookie Jars and Limited-Edition Ornament?
Yes! It’s already designed and super charming.
Will the products still be made in the US?
Absolutely. All of our beauty and skincare will always be made in the USA where we can trace the origins of every single ingredient.
I would like to leave a review on your products on HSN. How do I do it?
HSN (much like other TV shopping networks) want to make sure that the reviews are authentic. After you’ve purchased and received your items, you’ll receive an email with a prompt to leave a review.
What is the first thing I should try?
Will you do subscription boxes as you did on Evine?
Yep! We’ve already started designing them!
There’s a price increase on the soaps. How come?
All we can say right now is: watch for the on-air special. It’s all going to work out or even better! We will have the best deal on soaps, ever.
How often will you be on TV?
We are going to be on HSN once a month, for one day at a time. Sign up for the email notifications. At the end of July, we are starting with Beauty. In August, we will be bringing Happy Place and then September is back to Beauty. In October, we will be switching to Holiday items which means GOAT POOP is coming back!
Are you going to have lotions on HSN?
Yes, not all the products are up on the HSN website. Everything will be going up over time.
How much will we pay for shipping?
HSN has free shipping for all beauty products! You read that right, free shipping!
