I know my niche is very specific and not for everyone, but if you were on the market for a doll, would you click on this? If not, please let me know how I can earn your click. Thank you!

Its not my area of expertise but if I was to click i would want to know is this a history of video? Or a birthday celebration you've created for Ken? The thumbnail though definatly pops just perhaps (in my opionion) needs a subtitle. Hope that helps

Thank you for your feedback. I suppose I could have included the word "unboxing" in the thumbnail to make it clearer. It is, however, in the title of the video.

I think the colour definitely stands out - but maybe include something that tells you what the video is actually about - the imagery and size is also very good :)

Thank you for your feedback. Perhaps including the word "unboxing" would make it clearer. I definitely do not want to clutter it with too many words.

The "Ken" was a little diffcult to read due to the bright background. My suggestion either have a bright background with dark text or a dark background with bright text. Hope this helps.

Thanks. Yeah, the color of "Ken" is part of the brand, so I can't really change that. The background could be more muted. I chose this background because my other thumbnails have similar backgrounds, and I'm trying to stick to a particular aesthetic to have a consistent brand. That said, I have deviated from this bright pink a number of times, so it can be changed.

Hi lifeinplastic,

The image of you is good quality and natural and like the color scheme a lot, perhaps just some rethinking of text used and how the sizing looks when viewed at thumb sizes.

This tool has been posted before, FREE and easy to use (not an aff link), drop in an image and view at diff thumb sizes...
