How to find untapped and profitable niches for POD?

What is market activeness score?

We give each niche a score from 100, which represents how many listings in the search result sold at least one item during the last week.

How do you get market activeness score and competition?

Competition is the number of listings available for a niche. If it’s more than 2000 listings, and you’ve just started out, your chance of getting to the top of the listing is low.

Market Activeness: Insightfactory monitors the marketplace every day and tracks every change in the market if a niche has an activeness score of 100, it means all of the first 100 listings, sold at least one item during the last week. So the market is scorching, if the score is 0, it means none of the listings sold anything during the last week.

Why we don’t offer average search volume like other tools?

Etsy doesn’t share search volume data and we only use reliable data from the marketplace, we believe bad data is worse than no data, so we only offer statistics and data from reliable sources.
Market activeness is the more reliable score to analyze a niche than search volume, some niches would be trending and have a lot of search volume but have a low conversion rate. Some Trends are eye candy, people like to look at the items, but they don’t like to use their credit card and buy it. Therefore we only focus on the purchase rate and market activeness. Average search volume does not pay the bills. Real purchase does.
