    One more thing...after spending some time on WF I am now realizing that the website is pitiful and not designed to maximize sales. There is really no sales buzz and makes no mention of the products main selling proposition....HITTING A GOLF BALL STRAIGHT!

    I think eventually I'll have all traffic funneled to a completely NEW direct response type webpage.....but for now...I need to start on the name

    Actually, within the context of the sport, I think BanditGrip is
    a pretty good name. It's catchy and easy to remember.

    I like it!

    After viewing your website I agree with you... but I'd go so far as
    to say that the name isn't what's killing sales... Your website is
    not conducive to a successful product launch.

    I'd stop worrying about the name and start doing something that
    will actually attract and sell more buyers.

      Thanks! Yes, I agree. bad site for conversions. However, it's not my site but someone who's currently marketing the product for me.

      My goal is to sever relations with him, and maybe do a PPC with a cool funnel site....

        "BanditGrip, whether you're stealing pars or..."

        The website is sad.

        With the right angle, you could make the fact that it's not PGA approved into a selling point.

        A fishing lure company used to make out like a bandit running small ads in the various hook and bullet magazines touting the lure that was banned from several famous trout streams. If you tracked things down, you'd have learned that these rivers were designated 'fly only', so any lure would have been banned.

        Their statement was true - their lure was banned from those rivers because it was too effective. But so were their competitors' lures.

        But the less than subtle hint of an unfair advantage helped them sell millions of the little buggers.

        Do you own the name? If so, I'd be out of there by Noon... LOL.

        He isn't much of a marketer or designer... lol

          LOL, yes, I know & agree completely...I'm hanging there with him with the golf product as it is a spin off of another product which I (my wife) market and sell successfully WhipStrip

          I just couldn't do it to my wife (who works for free) to tell her she'd have to pack and ship the golf orders as well...

          Guess what I need is a partner who can take the golf product to the next level....

      Nice Janice. Very creative.

      I like GetAGrip and Grip-n-rip.



      John McCabe,

      You wouldn't be talking about the infamous "Banjo Minnow" would you? Their marketing was crazy good. I bought into the thing and it still sits unopened amongst all my other tackle.

    Name is fine. If it works, it should sell. I play golf, but would never buy it because it isn't legal. I think you need to target women that would buy it for their husbands.

      How about Straight Shooter?

      Or The Straight Shooter?

      The Straight Shooter Grip.

      The thought was to target the average duff golfer who does not care that it's not allowed on the PGA tour....but the guy that wants to beat his friend for a buck or two...

      I see your angle thou. thanks.

      Although a much smaller market, what about going after the older golfer with grip issues, or those with fibromylagia, arthritis, hand neuropathy, etc which makes it difficult to grip, and hold onto a club?

      Good example, but not the one I was thinking of.

      I'm going a couple of decades earlier, when the Mepps spinner made its debut in the States.

    The main benefit, hitting a golf ball straight, is the number one problem for average golfer today...

    It can be used on the golf course by the average Joe to beat his buddy in a round of golf, but is illegal/banned for sanctioned PGA play.

    Currently it's called BanditGrip. You can see it in action here BanditGrip.com

    My feeling is that the name is not descriptive enough for the products benefit...

    A bandit in golf is a sandbagger. Hence the name banditgrip.

    After reflection I don't like the name...

    Any help is appreciated....
    You have 4 products in one.

    A TRAINING aid. Seniors product. Avg. golfer and Premium.

    It seems the policy on links in posts has changed, so this may get deleted, but here is a link to an ad for an ILLEGAL golf product.

    Herald-Journal - Google News Archive Search

    This small Conneticut company has sold millions of dollars of golf products, most have been outside of R&A and USGA rules.

    I think you need to direct any promotions to one of those segments I posted.

    It could be a nice bonus for an order of a new golf ball, or a sleeve of balls could be a bonus for it.

    As a training device, you promote the fact it will train your hand to return to the square position automatically.

    For seniors, it could mean playing the game again, and maybe a supplement could be the front or back end. Either way, you sell more.

    The website should match the target audience, as a general golf product, it doesn't have high impact.

    Have you tried to offer it to major golf companies or to golf ball manufactures or as a bonus to a book, video or online instruction?

    gjabiz

    PS Two great golfers, Ike Handy and More Norman had great success teaching this method that the glove teaches. Maybe Ike's book, How to Hit the Golf Ball Straight could be acquired for a simple agreement and used as a bonus to buyers. The name isn't bad, but you might want to license the product out and let them name it.
