Looking at the pic again your product would be much clearer with just better lighting. Why is it in the shadows?
Honestly we did a terrible job and didn't take that into consideration (I admit it) someone brought his point up to us and looks like they were right. Everyone who has commented said something similar. I'm glad I asked

Isn't this pic your second pic? I feel the first pic should be the product alone, with a cathy title such as

"Name of the product": stop losing time changing weight between sets

I wanted to go with "make less efforts" but that wouldnt make much sense in the context of weight lifting lol

Edit: congrats on taking action and fingers crossed for that campaign!

Thank you . The product name is The Barbell Hangover, and the catchy title is :
"Turn your handheld weights into barbell plates"

Thank you. Ive never made it this far with an idea, but decided to just go for it!

I'm interested in seeing where this goes. I know there are some hard core lifters who will be like "that's not how you do it!" But assuming the product is safe, and you can generate a good photo to communicate what it is, I think it's a good business experiment.

I would totally click it (and I don't even work out ha), but the dumbbell, strap, clamp, need to be differentiated in color, maybe just gradation would suffice. Cool thumbnail and product though, good job.

Launching a Kickstarter in a couple days. My question is referring to the thumbnail we will be using.

Do you know what the product is?

Does this picture "stand out" or is it boring?

Would you click the campaign based on the thumbnail? View attachment 36812
A lot of people have already explain what I wanted to share. But here is a really good example of what you can do to make your product stand out. Is from Yaktrax page s

You need to draw more attention to the actual product. I think blurring a lot more of the picture would help.

The problem is that everything is the same color. Everything is black or gray so nothing stands out.

I think having someone edit the 45lb weights to be a silver color would help your product stand out. And having someone brighten up your product while blurring and dimming more of the rest of the picture.

But to answer your question, yes I could figure out what your product is without you saying it but only because you asked me to. Otherwise I would have kept scrolling before I noticed what your product is.
I totally agree with this.

What’s the price point? I don’t think there’s going to be a massive market for this but it’s a nice idea and I think you’ll make some money and get some experience.

edit: actually you could really build this into a brand, people who are serious about lifting, don’t mind a bit of DIY home made setup to save money and who are making home gyms due to covid is probably a fairly solid niche.

As for the image, you’re getting good feedback here, looks like you got really nice pictures done, just edit a bunch based on this advice and test the click through rate each one gets with Facebook ads, it won’t take much spend to get some good data.

You probably get what you need to by this point, but I do have a couple of questions I'm curious about.
-It looks like you have a U bracket that holds the dumbbell and then a separate bracket to clamp to the bar. Is this 1 piece, 2 pieces and sold together, or 2 separate things?

- Is it adjustable for different dumbbells handles? by how much?
-weight capacity?
-Do they rotate on there? If it's too tight and doesn't that would throw off the center of gravity. But if its too loose I image that the swinging would throw off bars weight as well (only an issue with faster lifts, but that would also make them significantly more dangerous)

Yeah a lot of people on here have given me some amazing feedback. No problem I'll answer any questions the best that I can.
1.As of right now we are just selling the bracket that lets you attach the handheld weight to the bar. We used a regular barbell collar to clamp it in. (2 separate items

2. The design was made to hold MOST handheld weights. This includes adjustable dumbbells, neoprene (which are a little thicker) , and kettlebells as well. We say MOST because we haven't tested it yet, but don't think they're compatible with Powerblocks. It will fit the majority of different dumbbells/kettlebells.

3.Each piece can support up to 500 lbs (it's made of steel)

4. We recommend using a plate (even a small one) on the inside while using our product. Swinging is kept to a minimum but does swing more with cleans , snatches, and those type of workouts. It does feel very well balanced though, you'd be surprised. Wouldn't know it was a dumbbell on there. (Of course I may be a little biased lol)

hope this answers your questions
