The world of online retail is competitive and gaining attention and sales can be hit or miss. So before you enter the E-tailer world, it’s critical that you decide on a product that will attract consumers. Researching ‘popular products’ or product trends will allow you to choose a product that will continue to get sales. It’s common sense, don’t waste time trying to sell a product nobody is buying.
Google Trends will provide insight into trending products. This tool uses overall search volume to discover trends of a product and can be dated back to search 1 week or 10 years. You can compare goods or searches, and see the location where your desired product is in high demand.
Other sites like Reddit or product reviews sites will also provide information on trending products. Bigger online retailers like Alibaba and Amazon have “best seller” categories you can research; these consumer marketplaces are enormous and will give an excellent idea of trending products.
