Trends Are The Best Way To Figure Out What To Sell

Ever wonder how successful online stores got that way? They saw trends coming. They got ahead of them. That’s how every single, successful e-biz store I started became successful over a short time. I saw trends starting and solved some kind of problem. Pok√©mon was my first.
Don’t know where to look for them? I used to watch Altavista (a search engine back in the 90’s) in real-time. It told me what people were searching for.
Now you can use Google Trends in much the same way:
Make a list of the trends you might be interested in. Write down a problem you could solve related to that trend. Why do you think people are searching for that?
What products could serve that market?
Enjoy this exercise. It could be the beginning of an exciting store.
