How do you track what's selling online?

18 replies
I follow a popular internet marketer on Youtube and he said to sell whats already selling well. What tools do you guys use to know this? I know clickbank allows you to look at gravity but are there other ways?

    I think that you should do your own good research and find what people need, what they're talking about and can't find the alternatives.

    Most savvy marketers search for what people are buying vs. what people are selling. eBay is a good resource to learn what people are buying.


    BTW, ClickBank Gravity is easily manipulated and faked, so most experienced marketers on this forum do not recommend ClickBank's Gravity. Did your alleged poular internet marketer on YouTube tell you to use the ClickBank Gravity? If s/he did.. stop following them.

    I follow people with a lot of sales. One guy on ebay with over 10k sales at about 15 dollar avg price (and an estimated $10 gross)...

    And at etsy, look at sales. One guy has over 30k sales, with dozens of items in his shop.

    At ebay, search the categories for COMPLETED/SOLD listings.

    I do believe ANY marketer, known or unknown, popular or not, understands the concept of buyers before products, with massive exceptions to the rule.

    What is it you are wanting to do? Just resell stuff?

      You cannot get any better advice than this post

      Sales,sales,sales never forget it what is selling most often is unrealistic pipe dreams

      It's the same for traffic and a email list

      email list of 10,000 lookers
      or
      email list of 100 with 2 buyers

        Why is "what is selling most often is unrealistic pipe dreams?" Honestly and no disrespect intended.. I do not understand your English or I am missing something?

        I ask because I am in the business of buying and selling and it would behoove me to buy anything for resell that is not selling on the market.

          Hi what I mean by this is anyone can try to sell anything.

          What I find is if you are not making sales then people are not interested.

          Let me give you an example to help you.

          I have someone who sells and buys many products.

          People come to him to sell him something, he gives a very low price to them and they respond but on eBay it is selling for $x.xx dollars.

          When I check on eBay to see if they are actually making sales I see zero sales for that product lots of people asking lots of money but no sales.

          So you have to be careful and separate what is making sales versus what people are selling two very different things.

          I hope you understand.

          Since you are in the business of buying and selling, you must be able to buy at the proper price to resell, common sense.

          Many people do not look at it this way, things are only worth what people are willing to pay for it.

          Most times selling prices are not realistic this is why I mentioned pipe dreams.

            Excellent. We are on the same page. Your explanation is exactly what was on my mind when I read your post. It just needed better articulated and you did that very well.

    Amazon is a good place to see whats selling, cj.com, offervault.com, cpa networks are good places. Cross reference a particular product among all the above places to gauge the popularity.

    Well you can see what the best sellers in various Amazon categories are at https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers/zgbs (these are updated hourly). I have used this for my sites when creating "Native Shopping Ads" (Custom Ads) in Amazon's affiliate program. If you break it down in the books/kindle sections, you can discover what people are buying to solve a problem or learn. Use this info for digital products to sell from other resources (clickbank, independent programs, your own product, etc.). I also have used this for researching health supplements as I've looked at having some products private labeled for me (on the backburner now).


    One eBay resource I have used in the past is http://www.watchcount.com/searches.php but it seems to work differently now. Many features are gone or not working well. Some great info is at https://crazylister.com/blog/top-selling-items-on-ebay/ . Also read https://crazylister.com/blog/the-bes...-sell-on-ebay/ as it points out that the best sellers don't necessarily produce you the best profits because of competition.


    Many websites let you sort product categories by "best selling" which is helpful if they are large merchants like Overstock for example.


    Let's not forget about using Google's & Microsoft's keyword planner as often product brands or specific type of product are high up in the search numbers.

    Cb snooper is a helpful product research tool that I've used in the past to identify what Clickbank products are rising and fallings as well as whats converting and what isnt.

    Cb Engine is another one for clickbank that is similar..

    Jungle Scout is an Amazon tool that helps filter out their database to identify some great opportunities in the niche markets as well as see what the competitor are doing..

    Another similar tool is AMZ tracker which is more centered around SEO and helps you see what products are ranking for what specific terms and keywords.

    Just a few options to check out. Hope that helps
