Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the questions we hear most often, with responses we hope you find helpful!
Q. Can I have ten minutes of your time, in person, to present my product to you?
A. Guthy-Renker LLC (G|R) is unable to take meetings as a first step. We are approached by too many people to do this.
Q. Can I show you my product in person? I have a great presentation. You have to see it to believe it!
A. Believe us, we know the feeling! We pitch products all the time and we love to do it in person. However, because of the sheer quantity of submissions, it’s not practical to meet every person with an idea. However, we do carefully review the ideas we receive in writing. Please give us the benefit of the doubt that if your idea/product is a match for our company, we’ll contact you!!
Q. How much does Guthy|Renker charge for an infomercial?
A. If we end up in a co-venture with you, we don’t charge any money for an infomercial, that’s part of our investment in the business. We are not an “agency” or “production house” and do not take on outside clients the way other companies do.
Q. How are deals structured (i.e., how much money do I get paid if I brought my product to you?)
A. While we understand your curiosity, it would be premature to discuss this before evaluating your product and determining our interest. All situations are unique and are structured on a case-by-case basis.
Q. I want to send you my product submission, but first I need you to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement. Does Guthy|Renker sign NDAs?
A. We cannot commit to signing an NDA under every circumstance. I wish we could, as we might see more opportunities. Hopefully, you can tell us about your product or idea without an NDA in a way in which you are comfortable yet spikes our interest and curiosity!
