During the COVID-19 pandemic, countless businesses were affected by the shutdowns. To support those small businesses that were negatively affected, QVC, HSN, and their parent company, Qurate Retail Group, launched and sponsored the Small Business Spotlight Program, in partnership with the NRF Foundation. This program highlighted and helped 20 small businesses across the country navigate the uncharted waters brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Spike’s Trophies was selected for the program, and our President, Keith Baldwin, appeared on the program June 2nd.
Each featured company was given access to their considerable production resources, television broadcasts, and social media platforms to tell their stories to a nationwide audience. In addition to the exposure, each business was offered a “virtual mentorship” with Qurate Retail Group team members to learn and develop skills, such as digital marketing, to better navigate the uncharted waters of a COVID-19-affected world.
As one of the 20 businesses selected, Spike’s Trophies received the honor of being featured on the program and being prominently featured across their social media channels.
“It is an honor and a privilege to have been selected for the Small Business Spotlight Program,” said Keith. “During this current crisis, which heavily impacted our industry, we at Spike’s have worked relentlessly to help others in our quest to save jobs in the small business community, so being selected for the program feels like a ‘full circle’ moment for us. We are humbled and forever grateful.”
Keith was able to tell more people about our efforts within the community during this trying time, like ramping up production for personalized masks and producing signs for COVID-19 testing sites. The lessons learned through appearing on the shows, the virtual mentorship program, and the personal navigation through the pandemic has set Spike’s Trophies up for long-term success in the face of great adversity.
