Selling on Etsy is exciting and challenging, but where do you even start? Research can be a real headache if you don't have a niche in mind. Here are some tips for finding your niche and figuring out what to sell with EverBee 🚀
Identify what you DON'T want to sell
While you may not have identified your niche yet, it's possible that you already have a clear understanding of what you DON'T want to sell. So, let's break down a list of these categories that you don't want to be in at all.
This will make it easier for us to start finding our niche. In addition, you can use our filter option to refine your search results. And then, you can narrow down your product research by selecting specific categories, listing age, revenue, sales, etc. 😉
There are 2 different ways to explore Etsy with EverBee, it can be through our Web-App or through our extension. This time, we will proceed and explore the listings through our Web-App. You can access to this link.
Alright, what is next? It is time to set up our filters!
- No need to search for specific keywords - EverBee automatically presents thousands of listings across various categories. - Sort by Estimate Monthly Revenue or Sales - Filter by Listing Age: By doing this, it will be possible to find out these new listings that are not that old, but already have several sales. - Looking to apply additional filters? Customize your search by adding them!
Analyze your filtered results
In these results, you'll come across a bunch of listings, each of them into different Etsy categories. Just, remember that we only filtered them based on listing age and sorted them by revenue.
Now, take a good look at these products and jot down your top 10 (just an example) favorites that you think you could totally sell. You can even save them as "favorites" and check them out later. 😉
Did you recognize a niche that you like?
Dig deeper into these listings and start analyzing the stores… there are 3 different type of shops on Etsy:
- Specific Product Type: One or two product types that can be in multiple designs. - Specific Niche: A shop that sells to a specific group of people or has an overall theme to it. - General Products: A shop that sells to a specific group of people or has an overall theme to it.
So, it's time to decide which type of shop do you want to create?
Start searching for your competitors!
After you define all this information, you can start with your research to find products in demand. Look for popular keywords and search for other sellers who are selling similar products. Check their reviews, product descriptions, and pricing strategy to get an idea of what's working and what's not.
Analyze your competitors tags
