Pregnancy Support - Monday Market of the Week

In the US alone, there are approximately 6 million pregnancies throughout the year based on the data collected by the American Pregnancy Association. Imagine if, as an online seller, you could convert the 6 million women into potential buyers of pregnancy support products? 

To check if we did find a promising niche, let’s see what our SaleHoo Research Lab has to show us about pregnancy support (also known as maternity belts or pregnancy belts)

Sell-through Rate: Did you really find a hot niche?

According to our SaleHoo Research Lab, the sell-through rate for pregnancy support is 56.27% as of January 30, 2012.

We recommend considering products with a sell-through rate of at least 50% since the sell-through rate is one of the key indicators of how well a product may sell.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

As of the previous month, the median end price for pregnancy support products was $36.02. After a quick search on eBay I found a listing selling Pregnancy Maternity Support Belt, Soft Form by FLA Orthopaedics at $43.95 and one of our featured suppliers is selling this exact product at $35.27 which provides sellers a decent profit.

Please note that the median end prices on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings for pregnancy support products which can include bulk listings that sell two or more pregnancy support products in a single listing which can skew data.

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: How viable is your market?

There are currently 483 bids for pregnancy support products on eBay while there are only 279 listings made by 300 sellers.

Comparing the total number of listings to the total number of bids there is certainly room for you to start selling your own pregnancy support products!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

The highest total revenue for pregnancy support products of $777.77 was recorded last February 22, 2012. Based on the graph above, there is no day within a 30 day period that the total revenue went lower than $250.00. So are eBay sellers making consistent sales? Yes they are!

Going beyond eBay: How popular are pregnancy support products online?

The results I get when I do a keyword search on our very own free SEO software, Traffic Travis, directly affects which niche we feature each week.

When I saw that “pregnancy support belt” had higher search counts, I immediately went back to the SaleHoo Research Lab to check if this should be our featured niche instead but noticed that “pregnancy support” offered a better market and it is obviously searched for more often on eBay.

What do these numbers mean?

Although our featured niche for this week is pregnancy support products, when I ran the keyword pregnancy support, I saw other keywords that seemed relevant in making one’s listing search engine optimized. From the screen shot above, you can see three related terms - pregnancy, pregnancy support belt and pregnancy support which you can use in your listing to help optimize it. This will give the listing a higher chance of being found in searches done by potential customers.

Remember you can direct traffic and potential customers to your marketplace listings and/or online store when you use the correct keywords.

If eBay is selling this product for 43.95 and the cost is 35.27 to buy from your Supplier, that only leaves 8.68 for a profit. After eBay and PayPal fees, you have made NOTHING for the item!

I like, thank you very much.
Martina on 22:38 2 Apr
Yes, I really like it, it's very good, thanks!

Good to know. Such a diverse market. Also very practical with babies and the like.

Hello everyone :) @Ted Bear: Thanks for pointing that out but you have to remember that in wholesale the final wholesale price is directly affected by the quantity of your orders. The example sited is the price for just one pregnancy support belt. @oleg, @Martina, @Russ: Thanks for your comments! Cheers!
