Market analysis and product research
As part of my client business, I have to spend, alas, hundreds of dollars on premium grade software that keeps me on the cutting edge.
Because data is power and I don't like to make a call without doing my homework first.
Now the way I use software for Print on Demand is I set up filters and use them to reverse engineer amazon from a seller perspective, letting me find the most popular, best-selling products print on demand products.
Because when you can spot these opportunities, you can increase your chances of success.
If I want to sell POD full print socks for example, I will use software to lock down the most popular socks on Amazon (because it's the most popular marketplace) then I will specifically check for socks doing big numbers, but with small competition - meaning it's easier to compete.
Here's part of an example for funny socks - no surprise that there's a big December spike.
Now while this isn't specific to Etsy, Amazon is the largest product search engine in the world and if something resonates with buyers there, you have a safe bet it will on Etsy too!
But as I said, each one of these software tools costs a boatload of cash per month (I use Jungle Scout, Helium 10 and Viral Launch) but since I have access anyway, here's what I am now offering - I will charge you a small one-off fee - and use my accounts to do the research for you, so you don't have to worry about paying a fortune each month.
So for just 50 dollars, I will run the search for you and provide you with a set of data that you can use to see who is selling the most for your target product type (this could be a print on demand item or standard item)
All you need to do is click 'buy now', pay via paypal and I will Email you to get some information to use for the search.
