Kickstarter Fail: We looked at the crazy Rezzimax Tuner and LAUGHED

More kickstarter ‘get rich quick’ ideas.

We’re starting to highlight more of these and their marketing tricks just due to the fact that they are all starting to raise serious funding. But when you start to disect their Kickstarters you start to see the flaws of how they are raising funds and the suspiciousness of it.

Lets look at the Rezzimax Tuner created by Sharik Peck. Who, by the way, doesn’t even list this successful company on his LinkedIn page, remember, according to them “We have already produced previous versions of the Rezzimax® Tuner and sold them worldwide.”, but he doesn’t even list the product on his LinkedIn?

Are you laughing yet? Yes it’s a lovely tiny piece of plastic that seems to ‘tune’ your body by small vibrations.

Red Flag #1 – Why are people paying more than needed?

So there’s a few red flags with this project, the first is that they are offering two identical tiers, one which is $199 and their Early Bird, and then a $249 tier which is an identical tier just $50 more expensive. Odd that there are still 19 spots left at the $199 price and yet 4 people have went with the more expensive $249 price.  Why? Why would you want to spend $50 more on this product, are they trying to inflate their goal for some reason?

 

Red Flag #2 – Why are all the text, images, and not selectable?

Every single element of text on this kickstarter page is an image, not one single amount of it is highlightable, why is that? Are they not wanting you to google their text?

Red Flag #3 – If their previous hardware was so successful, why do they need a Kickstarter?

We have already produced previous versions of the Rezzimax® Tuner and sold them worldwide.

And the best part is their kickstarter’s goal was only for $10,000, surely that’s all they wanted to hit, you could retire on $10,000!

And don’t forget they are using a marketing company for their kickstarter, so they already lost close to 1/3rd of their total profit just on marketing.

Here is their Rezzimax being used on horses.

And don’t forget their best quote of all.

“Please Note: We must be clear that the Rezzimax® tuner is not intended to cure, treat, or prevent any illness”

    This doesn’t make a lot of sense. Is your entire website a scam? It feels that way, but, maybe I’m just not quite understanding your writing style.

    Here are my rebuttals to your “Red Flags” for this particular Kickstarter campaign.

    Red Flag #1: Because four (4) people are more generous and are simply giving $50 more, perhaps? Or, maybe they are just silly/dumb/didn’t look at all of the levels/read through things clearly, and therefore didn’t realize they could get the same product for a lesser pledge?

    Red Flag #2: Look at all kinds of other Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns. Many have all images and no text. Joanna, who created EvoBra, has a very similar design, with loads of pictures and relatively no text. Also, your mistaken in terms of “images not [being] selectable.” See below for a few examples, showing how easy it was for me to copy and select images on the page. Furthermore, this company appears to be reputable. They even have shipped out their product to some of their backers, ALREADY, even BEFORE credit cards and debit cards were charged! Look at this one I found from a recent backer, that the creator, Sharik Peck, personally sent over to me: https://www.screencast.com/t/bZeUYC0J Here’s the context for that one as well: https://www.screencast.com/t/TEQUF4i2r https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0fa3b0ddf669a2585b440462f11f9db7f32efd43c7a0efd9c14eac5b4200776c.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cbbb10a6a775a3db42fe468292e955393a667ed8ae05dddeb02f78594bd47417.jpg

    Red Flag #3: And? Companies of all shapes and sizes now use crowdfunding as a viable means to raise more capital and vet new ideas. That’s the idea of crowdfunding: To achieve product validation and perform due diligence on new ideas before investing more time and resources into something the market might not want or cannot bear.

    Regarding your “Please Note:” Kickstarter has strict policies in place that make it so that no health claims are to be made, regardless of their veracity, and regardless of whatever invention you attempt to create. See here for their full terms: https://www.kickstarter.com/rules/prohibited (Read the first one listed: Any item claiming to cure, treat, or prevent an illness or condition (whether via a device, app, book, nutritional supplement, or other means). Hence, the reason for this disclaimer (Kickstarter told the creator that this disclaimer was needed in order to be able to launch on their platform). Truth be told, this campaign went through many revisions before being accepted on Kickstarter’s crowdfunding platform. Originally, many health claims were made, as the creator has hundreds of cases studies as to their veracity (Review the YouTube videos on the Kickstarter campaign page for further evidence of these facts).

      ARE they facts? Would it be better to say that, at best, they are examples of the placebo effect?

      As to the ‘Please Note’ you cited – KS does that (as well as many pushing dubious treatments) so they do not run afoul of the FDA. However, in seeing the same campaign and product on Indiegogo, I note the warning is NOT there – and they got fully funded.
