With the world going remote and people doing most of their shopping online, we decided to compile for you a list of the best products to sell online in 2021. Without further ado, here we go.
- Yoga mat:
With the ongoing pandemic, most of us are stuck indoors and gyms are all shut down. Also, most of us have become a lot more conscious about our physical health. This is the perfect storm that has made yoga mats sell like hot cakes, which puts yoga mats in the #1 position on our list of trending products to sell in 2021. Choose to sell a quality yoga mat that is sturdy and is made from a breathable material. If possible, try to stock it in multiple colours to give your customers a range of options to choose from.
- Reusable water bottle
With an ongoing health crisis, self-care has become all the more important for people who spend most of their waking hours sitting in front of a laptop screen. A good quality reusable water bottle is the perfect product for such professionals working from home, to help them stay hydrated. Pick an ergonomic design that is easy to use and store. Make sure that the product is tough and durable, and can withstand wear from long-term usage and falling from a table. And if your product has some form of built-in insulation, to store hot and cold products for longer periods, it will only make it more lucrative for your buyers. Most people should be happy with a normal metallic or black colour, but you could choose to stock a variety of colour options.
- Phone tripods
With a fast-booming global community of content creators, content creation has become a full-time profession for hundreds of thousand of people. Phones are not just devices to communicate with anymore, but have become all-in-one production studios to record, create, edit and publish content. No surprise, a good quality tripod stand for phones is a wildly popular product to sell online right now. Sell a phone tripod made of lightweight but durable material. Two important features to have would be a good maximum height and decent load-bearing capacity. Most people view and publish content for portrait/ vertical sizes, so it is important that your tripod can at least reach a maximum height of 5-5.5 feet. Also, having a good load-bearing capacity will make it versatile, to be used with ring lights, DSLR cameras etc.
- Pet products
Pets are not just domesticated, household animals anymore. They are beloved family members now. Their owners love to pamper them and do not mind spending handsomely on good quality pet products. With physical pet shops either closed or too few in numbers right now, it is a very good business idea to sell quality pet products online. A few good pet products to sell would be pet beds, grooming brushes and pet collars. While pet collars have long been staples purchases for pet owners, there were never many options to choose from. Products like pet beds and grooming brushes have become increasingly relevant as our fondness for our furry friends has grown.
For dog collars and cat collars, try to have ample design options for your customers to choose from. Pet beds should be comfortable and available in at least 2-3 size options to choose from. A pet grooming brush need not have a lot of variety. A simple brush made of good quality material with strong butt gentle bristles would be enough to stock.
- Posture correctors
While we are holed up indoors, most of us spend our days sitting in front of a laptop screen. It doesn’t take long for this act of sitting to change into slouching or slumping or drooping, all very unhealthy positions for your spine. It is no surprise that posture correcting devices or posture correctors have become sudden hits online. And with their current popularity, they are not very difficult to source either. If you are planning to sell posture correctors online, make sure that the product is made for use by both men and women, and is made of a good quality breathable material that doesn’t become uncomfortable after an hour’s usage. A well-designed posture corrector in multiple sizes should serve your online store well.
- Phone cases
Phone cases have long been the Michael Jacksons and The Beatles of bestselling online products, always featuring among the top names of this list. So, if you can stock a few good quality designs in variants for multiple devices, you should have a winner on your hands. If you’re wondering where to start, try to have a few designs inspired by the current pop culture- TV shows, movies, sports etc. You can also try experimenting with the material. Glass phone covers and wooden phone covers are hugely popular products online.
- Beauty and wellness products
Beauty products have always been amongst the top-selling products of any kind, offline or online. With people becoming a lot more conscious about their health and about the environment, the trend has shifted towards organic, eco-friendly products that are easy on your skin in the long term. If you’re looking to sell beauty and wellness products to sell online, we’d recommend going the organic/ natural route and start with a basic face cleanser or facial scrub made of natural ingredients. Face cleansers and scrubs are comparatively easier to source and are amongst the bestsellers in the category. Further down the road, you can choose to add products like moisturiser, lip balm, hand-cream and more of this sort.
- Laptop stand
This isn’t a surprising addition on the list; is it? With remote work becoming a more permanent way of life, we have all found our perfect home-office setups, centered around the might ‘laptop’. With the long hours we spend, clicking away at our laptops, it is important for the device to be set at a comfortable height, with the keyboard set at a comfortable angle to accommodate long hours of typing. A light, durable laptop stand is the perfect solution in this situation. No wonder that it has become one of the hottest selling new products during the last year-and-a-half. If you’re planning to sell a laptop stand online, it will be desirable to have one that is light in weight and offers adjustable height & keyboard incline. There are even foldable laptop stand in the market, which makes them a lot more desirable.
- Laptop skins
Laptop skins have always popular among fans of famous pop culture properties, like popular video games, TV shows, movies, comic books etc. With more players entering the market, laptop skins are not just limited to geeks and pop culture fans. They have become a great accessory to stylise your laptop with and to show a different side of yourself. You may choose to stock designer laptop skins for Macs and windows-based laptop brands like Lenovo, Asus, Dell, etc. With some clever marketing, they are sure to sell well.
- Notebooks and journals
Stationery products are always high in demand online. Notebooks and journals, especially, are among the most popular stationery products online. Only a true stationery buff knows the thrill of smelling a new notebook or diary, the joy of running your hand over its smooth cover, the excitement to begin writing in it. Amongst the bestselling notebooks and journals have been based on popular TV shows, movies, books and more. You could try that route, or you could choose a different category for yourself with original artworks on the cover, or good quality journals made with smooth thick paper and good quality hard/ faux leather covers.
