New Toy Suggestions / Marketing improvements

Postby Korstabel » Mon Feb 12, 2018 9:08 pm

Here are some new toy suggestions and how to reinvigorate the line-up, and increase profitability.

1) Add/innovate new designs/ themes with these dildos
--> "Moby" a whale-penis based toy, large, as you might imagine
--> "Woolly" a woolly mammoth elephant penis, gray is the signature color
--> "Sheeple" -- A male sheep penis
--> "Grizz" grizzly bear large fat penis
--> "Skwatch" a large sasquatch/ big foot penis
--> "Nemo" a whole fish-shaped dildo ( not a fish penis, an entire fish), tail is the base
--> "Duo" a series of double-penis's with a single base, you can insert into one hole at once (or two!)
---> "Venus" a venus-fly-trap themed penis, which has a central penis that penetrates you while at the same time many tendrils that caress your skin (outside your vagina/anus) each time you thrust it, for extra stimulation.
--> "Spiragen" a spiral shaped dildo you screw into your hole, for a whole new sensation.
--> "Pyra" a pyramid-shaped dildo with a wide base, Egyptian-theme and color, with little blocks on the side.

2) Drop duplicate designs, such duplicate canines and duplicate horses, ... it confuses new customers and reduces profit:
--> Horses -- Keep Chance; Drop Bumble Hooves, Tucker (horse/dog)
--> Canines -- Keep Fenrir, Razor; Drop Diego, Austin, Roland, Kage, Rex, Cole

3) Analyze sales figures and drop lowest 10% sellers from catalog immediately. Do this each year.

4) Website is gorgeous, whoever is doing that should continue

5) Increase hits/ad level on google, searches are not showing up high enough; needs to show up in Ad section at the top of searches.

6) These products are Amazing, you should be proud of what you've accomplished.

Sorry for the sass but:

1) New toys
Moby dick - We already have a cetean design - Kona the Anthro dolphin. During shark week BD will sometimes bring back Desi the anthro Orca

Wooly mammoth - Gray is a boring, and frankly uninspiring signature color for a toy. You could also hit up EE or Frisky Beast if you're looking for something with an elephant toy

Grizz and Sheeple - nothing to go on here??, you can also go to Frisky beast for a bear toy, and kuduvoodoo for a sheep toy

Skwatch - get an archer or pearce in flesh/grey marble?

Nemo - we already have Meng the micro dragon

Duo - we had a toy like this available once called Bruce, and BD discontinued it because it didnt sell as much as they wanted. Bruce comes back every shark week. Also using two shafts on the same toy is really difficult to do

Venus - the tendrils sound like flop central and they'll probably be prone to air bubbles and bad pours/marbles. We also have Xerxes who has a single tendril

Spiragen - You can go to split peaches for their unicorn horn model

Pyra - we have winstons tail for a triangular toy that you can get in a gold color

2) Dropping models you suggested - No. BD is so pouplar because they offer so much variety out of nearly every fantasy toy maker on the market. And a lot of the models you suggested to be dropped are fairly popular already.

3) Dropping least popular model every year - We'd probably loose all the one sizes and a couple of BD classics within a decade /pessimistic

4) Skipping the Website bit, as we had an entire thread of nearly everyone left on the forums flip their shits. Its a very touchy subject

5) BD is hitting up a lot of adult cons, offering free toys to cam girls, and advertises on furry porn sites that I know of. They've also expanded their social media a lot over the years

6) BD has come a long way since they first started, for better and for worse...

1)Not much to add from the above but I highly doubt BD will expand to nonanthro things aside the Eggplug (Easter toy so it makes sense)

For two, definitely not. BD specializes in variety for one. The last thing I want to see is this company cutting models next. And various reasons. You don't know how popular or how many sales these toys actually make so saying Roland, kage, etc to drop...well...BD doesn't make duplicate designs.

Tucker is a knotted horse
Kage is a lab design many people wanted
Bumblehooves is a thicker horse
Diego has a less pronounced knot. Good for people that don't like that.
Roland is a reptile and canine. Nice texture.
Austin is a good beginner toy from what I've read

4) I personally dislike the new website but to each their own. Pretty much spiral touched on it.

5) BD is going to cons and etc as the above said.

6) yes they should be proud of what they've made, so dropping models doesn't make sense. People like variety. I'd rather have Roland or Bumblehooves over Chance, I don't like realistic toys and Roland...idk I've loved that toy since it was released.

Pretty sure BD is already analyzing sales figures and the like.... this isn't a small company anymore. They have an entire marketing team: probably half a dozen people who's sole job is to keep track of what is selling and what isn't and then come up with ways to revamp less popular/older models.

As the above persons have said, BD doesn't make duplicates. Every canine and equine horse has unique features that help it sell. There's something for everyone; I imagine dropping a dozen toys would hurt sales.

From your tone, it sounds like you're making a sincere suggestion to the company. BD doesn't really check the forums or use them as a source of input anymore. The likelihood of someone seeing these suggestions and taking them into consideration is pretty low. And as people have already stated, most of those suggestions would probably get BD accused of stealing designs from other companies. (Which has happened in the past, and it wasn't pretty. No one wants to go through that again.)

Thanks for your comments, i really don't know of any other companies making these products, just thought of them on my own. I appreciate your insight here so thanks for that.

Surprisingly, apart from BD there are a lot of fantasy toy makers out there, and a member of our forums named Squirrelmunk has compiled a list of almost everyone of them:

:nerdy:

I think you have some good ideas, but they need some refinement. I think Bad Dragon should instead take the least popular dildos and put them on sale! Maybe have a promo one-size spectacular sale where they get a price drop that would hopefully drive up sales.

Also, I like your idea of having plant based dildos. I'd like to see a series of twisting vines for that cork-screw style dildo you suggested. It couple have floppy, fun flower petals for the base and maybe some bumpy and bristly stamens for fertilising fun!

Also, how about pose-able dragon talons that you can fuck between the toes or squeeze 2 together on your dick and fuck them? You could use it for stretching too like put in one toe, then another and another and it'd be all scaly and bumpy. I feel like variety and uniqueness is the strength of Bad Dragon, so they should stick to appealing to those niche fans who will love all the weird kinky shit they're capable of making.

These are actually really good additions to ops original suggestions, which needed to be fleshed out some more

I'd like to see a flower/plant tentacle toy instead of the octopus/squid tentas we have here. In fact we need more plant toys in general, cause I can only count three off the top of my head (Hanns - BD, Succulent - Starspawn Toys, Root - that one indie company that blatantly ripped off Ika)

And the dual talons sounds like they'd be fun as a psuedo-penetratable, not too sure how'd they'd work as an insertable though. This does remind me of a foot penetratable that someone else suggested on another thread
