Is it still possible to find winning products by using tools that provide something new ? Yes, and this is what we’re going to see with Sell The Trend’s interesting approach.
I regularly use services dedicated to the owners of dropshipping e-shops and I test many of them every month, my latest test is Ecomhunt.
And one that’s really impressed me lately is Sell The Trend!
The service offers a wide range of features through a simple interface and goes much further than most other tools of the same kind.
At the time of writing, Sell The Trend’s catalogue already offers more than 2,300,000 trendy products with all the information needed to know their potential.
Today, I offer you an overview of this famous tool and give you a detailed review. Anyone can sign up for a free trial on this platform to discover its true power.
Sell The Trend : A complete 9-in-1 service for marketers and sellers
The first thing that struck me when I first discovered Sell The Trend was its ability to provide all the complete measurement and analysis tools on Aliexpress, Shopify, Amazon and Facebook.
Once in the dashboard, you will see that more than 2.3 million products are listed, including 4,000 labelled as new trend products.
The dashboard is modern, ergonomic and elegant.
There are two modes, the first simple and the second advanced, of which here is an overview:
Under each of the main categories are subcategories such as:
- Hot Products
- Trends Products
- New Products
- All Products
- Favorite Products
- Popular Shops
- And so on…
The first thing to note are the features dedicated to Amazon FBA, very few tools offer such a thing, it is appreciable.
This first section is like the Holy Grail of sourcing winning products and several possibilities are available to you to search and browse the list of products thanks to the different filters.
If you don’t have an idea yet of the niche in which to launch your e-commerce store and on which platform, the Nexus will be very useful to you.
You will be able to refine the results by filtering by category, niche and keyword.
For each product there is an overview with relevant information, including:
- A quality image
- The number of shops on which it is sold
- The original price with the profits
- An estimate of the sales generated
- The marketplaces offering the product
Thanks to this, it is very easy to select a product at a glance, but of course, it is possible to go further in the metrics by clicking on the product.
Thanks to this popup, we have access to sales trends with this curve.
On some products, advertising targeting with Facebook Ads is indicated for creating targeted marketing campaigns.
You can check whether or not a video made by the supplier Aliexpress is available by clicking on the wholesaler’s product sheet.
Very positive reviews, many variants, free shipping with AliExpress Standard Shipping and a free video… this product has a lot of potential.
Sell The Trend also provides to do the same to find the product easily on Amazon and Facebook with ads promoting this product.
In the same way, you can look at the product sheets of your direct or indirect competitors by analyzing their shop very easily.
The merchant is here American and offers the product at $22…
The Nexus module is extremely powerful to search for products in an almost infinite way thanks to their very large catalogue!
But it also offers the possibility to find the most popular Shopify stores of the moment, by category or keyword.
It is therefore possible to have an overview of all competing shops in a specific niche. Sell The Trend provides bestsellers, monthly traffic estimates, advertising and plugin spending of all kinds, but also the presence or not on social networks such as Facebook or Instagram.
If you wish to carry out more precise searches on Aliexpress, it is quite possible thanks to this second section. By opening the Aliexpress explorer, the tool offers all the physical products that are currently popular on the marketplace.
With the possibility to search again by category and niche, it is a very interesting feature to launch a new range of products on your awning.
Here is an overview with the first two products:
All the useful data are there : number of orders, notices, purchase prices, growth curve, total sales, etc…
There are other methods and tools to search on Aliexpress, but honestly you don’t even need to browse the Chinese site anymore because Sell The Trend offers you everything on a platter!
Amazon & Shopify Search
This does not stop with the search for Aliexpress products, as it is possible to find specific products sold with Amazon FBA or on specific Shopify stores that can work with European suppliers for example.
The two features are very similar, one will search in Amazon’s product catalogue, the other on generalist or online shops.
Of course, it is possible to use Amazon search for your Shopify, WooCommerce or even Wizishop shop and vice versa, it doesn’t matter because the features are independent of each other.
An important element to note regarding the Shopify search is that it is possible to sort the shops with the Alexa Rank popularity index. So it’s very interesting if you choose an organic SEO strategy.
Another feature that makes Sell The Trend stand out from many other tools is the ability to search among Facebook ads using Ad Explorer.
It’s very useful and reminiscent of AdSpy, which is however much, much more expensive!
This includes both recent and older announcements. You can filter ads by publication date, post type (image, video) as well as by engagement with the number of comments, interactions and sharing.
It’s a really neat and useful feature to find winning products.
For example, you can use keywords like “bit.ly” because many sellers link bit.ly to their shop to have cleaner links.
Finally, you can also easily track ads you want to follow thanks to the Trackable Ads.
Sell The Trend and complementary tools
The platform also offers three very useful tools, especially when doing dropshipping.
To save time, Sell The Trend provides a fairly interesting tool to launch your advertising campaigns and target the right people. By typing a keyword or using one of the predefined categories, the tool will show you the corresponding interests.
Here is an example with the beauty category:
You will be able to target brands, magazines, companies, celebrities and websites very easily.
It’s not as complete as Facebook’s audience builder, but this feature is still very interesting in addition to it.
For the moment, I was quite surprised to see this feature, especially since it is well done.
The video creator allows you to design a simple assembly in 6 steps:
- Import images from a shop or your own images
- Choose the images to use for video editing
- Put the texts to be displayed then define a background color
- Select a music from several tracks
- Define an interval between images
- Create the video
This tool is pretty cool and since it’s included in the subscription, it’s great.
It is a fairly basic tool, but it provides a commitment score based on the number of followers, likes and comments of an Instagram or Twitter publication with the number of retweets.
It gives you a result between 0 and 100.
This feature allows you to do a brief analysis of the Instagram and Twitter influencers, but I advise you to use HypeAuditor for a complete report.
BONUS: Tutorials and free training
Sell The Trend provides each of its members with video tutorials and a mini-training if you are new to dropshipping.
The Success Academy course offers in 9 videos to understand the basics of an e-commerce business with a section dedicated to influence marketing.
The tutorials explain how to use the tool correctly with short, concrete videos, here is an example of the videos you will find:
Finally, you can freely join their Facebook group which already has more than 826 members who can help you find winning products, answer your questions, advise you and much more.
Sell The Trend review : My final opinion
To put it simply, I am very happy and satisfied with this tool which offers a combination of the best features to find winning products!
Sell The Trend provides a ton of added value for only $39 per month. You have access to Aliexpress, Shopify, Amazon and Facebook data to help you create a shop.
The products are updated in real time and contain a lot of relevant and useful information. The tool also uses artificial intelligence to source new ones.
I enjoyed navigating through the interface which is clear, fluid and ergonomic. Additional tools such as the audience builder and video creator are cool features that many other tools rarely offer.
The team is very reactive and during my two contacts by email, I received a reply in less than an hour…
Only one $39 per month plan is available with 2 months discount for annual renewals. You can start enjoying it for free thanks to the trial period offered to get an idea, but I think you’ll soon adopt Sell The Trend.
