This is the third post in a series of articles detailing the process of determining what to sell online and how to start e – commerce. In the following weeks, we will publish more detailed articles on other aspects that will help you evaluate the products you can sell online.
With thousands of products available for sale online, choose a single product can be a somewhat daunting task. In our first post on the subject, we learned eight strategies to find the first product from your online store and in our last article we show 10 site where entrepreneurs can find product ideas.
From this information, we decided to find ourselves between these sources and have selected 10 products- one from each category – that seemed interesting and caught our attention. To make a small test demand, we use Google Trends to effect cross all controls. 10 product ideas we have selected have a strong upward trend.
Making this list is just a starting point. When you have chosen the product, you need to go through a full assessment process to determine the demand and potential output.
So we start.
With the help of our free guide you can create product descriptions that generate sales for your online store.
Disclaimer: Keep in mind, these are not suggested for selling online products, they are just elements that have drawn attention to us and whose tendency is on the rise according to Google Trends. Before you sell anything online, you must first do your own market research to determine demand and potential.
The only industry where there may be more trends in nutrition, is in fashion. Related to nutrition and health industry is constantly evolving and there will always be opportunity for new products to meet the latest fad diet. One of the biggest trends in recent years has been the paleolithic diet (or paleodiet). If you do not know, this diet is a modern nutritional plan based on an alleged diet of Paleolithic men used more than 15,000 years ago.
Here in the office of Shopify have a handful of employees who follow this diet, which inspired us to take it.
Glancing at Google Trends on the Paleo diet, we see a significant growth peak since late 2010.
Consider the following image:
Manufacture of food products can be somewhat complicated because it involved food laws and regulations. Digging a little deeper, we find YouBars – that as a manufacturer – offers a wide range of options for people interested in protein and nutritious wholesale and private label bars, will be responsible for all manufacturing and labeling required by law.
The fashion industry progresses trends are constantly evolving, which means that there are multiple opportunities for entrepreneurs. Bow ties for men they have become a growing trend in our community, especially in the windows of every shop online.
Trends in Google you will see how this trend is real. In the past 3 years, searches on “bow ties for men” have tripled. This triple jump shows a growing trend of men who are not only thinking about buying a bow tie, but also want to dress and look good.
The best thing about this is that men have increased the buying trend in e – commerce in general. The portal Mexico the country that has increased in 2016 .
This is good news for the male market retail and e – commerce, as it represents a significant market opportunity for a specific audience.
After checking the trend of bow ties, we get excited with the world of men ‘s fashion accessories and we wonder what other menswear products represent a good opportunity. We asked the experts who follow on Twitter to see what products he was talking recently were.
It turns out that apart from the bow, there is another accessory that is experiencing a comeback in the market: Handkerchiefs – who have also attracted attention lately.
When checking the trend of Google Trends Handkerchiefs, they seem to have even more followers than bow ties in recent years.
The scarves are not only great because they are fashionable, but because they are products which , with a good job and practice – can do yourself. With some pieces of fabric can create attractive products sold above $ 60 (some brands may become more expensive) and profit margins can be quite good.
Another positive point about accessories – such as handkerchiefs and bow ties mentioned above – is that they generally are one size and fit like pants or shirts. This makes them much easier to buy and sell online.
Who would have thought ? Originally we dealt with these lenses in Alibaba as we sailed in the popular section. A search for the phrase “sunglasses wood” in Alibaba yielded 22,603 products from 555 suppliers. An indication of strong demand from the market.
To verify our suspicions consult Google Trends, where we discover that the wood sunglasses are a relatively recent product, however exhibit steady growth almost every year since its inception.
Note that products like sunglasses depend on the season, which can be clearly seen in trends. In any case it is an interesting product.
After finding the sunglasses in wood in Alibaba, we think about the current trend of wooden accessories. We have seen many wood accessories Kickstarter , so we began our search and quickly found the wooden clocks.
If we observe the following trend graph, we can see that wood clocks have been around for much longer than we think. Based on the results of Google Trends, we appreciate that entered the market in late 2004 and 2012 the interest in this type of product has been slow but steady growth.
However, in the last two years the growth curve has remained stable with sporadic peaks. Still remain market opportunities for wood clocks or already reached the top of its expansion?
We have seen many products and accessories for men, however we found a product for ladies who has had tremendous growth and interest in recent years.
We subscribe to product review blogs we read quite regularly as Uncrate and Outblush . The latter is where we find a list of leggings for women, especially with bold designs.
Except for the strong seasonal nature of product demand, the trend of leggings look very strong, significantly increasing every year.
Electronic cigarettes are big business. Also known as E-Cigarette is an electronic device steam content itself. Sometimes called “personal vaporizer” or “digital steam device” is a battery powered developed to simulate the flavor of snuff device.
Currently, these devices are everywhere. We have seen in news and in our community, but they are really an idea of potential product and as such appreciate it in the article of Digital Freedom Portal: The unstoppable growth of electronic cigarette.
Although e-cigarettes are an interesting product they are something really new in the market and the legal framework just being built. In the coming years is expected to entry into this market is a little more difficult and restricted.
Google Trends graph coincides with our forecasts for this particular trend.
While looking for more information on electronic cigarettes, we decided to go to Reddit to see what was said about it . To our surprise, we find a subreddit dedicated specifically to creating your custom mix on the market for liquid refill your electronic cigarette, also known as “juice” or “e-juice”.
As we imagined, the growth of this trend fits with the growth of electronic cigarettes very closely, so it can be considered as a potential business opportunity.
As we sailed on Pinterest, images of coconut oil emerged steadily. Apparently it is a good oil in one, healthy and can be used for cooking, as well as lip balm, cream moisturizer, shaving cream, conditioner deep treatment body cream, cleanser, body scrub, insect repellent, And you stop counting.
If we look at the trend graph, the upward trend is undeniable since 2011.
Coconut oil is an interesting product because it has multiple uses. Each of them can be a niche market with opportunities to explore separately.
While we were looking at Instagram, we noticed a picture that someone had climbed on matcha green tea. The Matcha is a finely ground green tea as a powder and has become a popular product in conjunction with the category of teas in general. Tea sections of supermarkets have had to make room for multiple brands that have appeared in recent years.
The trend Matcha green tea has increased since 2009Y recently there has been a massive spike interest in Internet searches.
Overall here’s the situation. We use a list of resources to collate our suspicions, search and online communities in general and employ a strategy that provided these initial 10 ideas for interesting products to sell online. In our publication next week, we will select one of these products to evaluate fully and to determine the feasibility and potential demand.

You can make shipments only in the country where you belong and experience with international shipments only when this proved that the product did not suffer any damage. The high vacuum pack is a good choice for these cases.

Hello Miguel Angel,
Thanks for your message. To generate income on the internet there is no magic formula, it requires hard work, dedication and perseverance. Shopify is an ecommerce platform with which you can start an Internet business, however, sales and customers do not come on their own to do a lot of Internet marketing so that customers get to know your business.
If you have few economic resources to start, you need to read this article:

To find out what products to sell in your area, we recommend using Google Trends to find out what things are trending or whose searches are on the rise, that can give you a good indication of ideal products .
The business failures depend on many factors, not just the selected product, and keep in mind that a business starts to not give immediate returns, so we recommend you get a job while you’re developing your business idea and start make the necessary sales for profit.

for someone who just start a business and have no experience, I recommend resell the products of another; ie buy from a local wholesaler, and sell the products in your store.
Start with a small inventory and then to grow, then move to buy from suppliers abroad.
As for the product to sell, I suggest you look Google Trends where you can see what the trends in your country.
