Stefaney consistently reaches $1 million to $1.4 million in a 24 hour period of product sales for Today’s Specials.
As a National TV Retail professional, her work ethic and presentation style is well regarded. What comes across as seamless on tv takes a lot of research, preparation and production, months prior to each airing. She is one of the rare on-air brand representatives who regularly features back-to-back products for up to 2 continuous LIVE hours, providing excerpts, expertise, brand messaging and natural sales CTA’s in a conversational way. She has never missed a beat from on-air mishaps which do rarely occur, including feed drops, covering for a coughing Host or any on-stage accidents which might be distracting or create panic to a non-professional. HSN is completely live without cue cards or teleprompter, allowing Stefaney to utilize her skills from SAK Improv School. Stefaney’s presentations not only bring retails sales on the day but all her shows live forever on HSN’s YouTube Channel and on HSN.com for all Active Products and the footage is often shared/used by the brands, making each presentation even more valuable.
Her media skills include Live Sales/Presenting with Host and IFB (basically three people communicating different things at once), Live Reporting, Ad-Lib Banter Live, Teleprompter, Interviewer/Interviewee, SMTs, Live Audience Hosting, Producing and Pitching.
She has previously written 1500 lifestyle scripts for world renowned brands such as LG, Wilton, Kitchenaid, Lowe’s, Bosch, Garnett Hill, Singer Sewing Company, Joann, Cerave, Ottlite, Jiffy Lube, and hundreds of others and has an efficient ability to explain brand messaging and technological jargon in a conversational way, since every minute counts on paid programming or live tv!
Stefaney is Authentic and her socials reflect how she uses products in everyday life, DIYs she creates and other lifestyle inspiration.
