How can the Merch Archive feature help you?
What is the Merch Archive?
The Merch Archive is another exceptional tool in the Podly software suite tailored for print-on-demand sellers. Picture a treasure trove of historical sales data on Merch by Amazon and Book products, going back to 2017 and extending to the present day. Unlike the Merch Database, which focuses on current listings, the Merch Archive lets you travel back in time to see what was hot and what was not.
How is it User-Friendly?
Leveraging Podly's classic and intuitive user interface, the Merch Archive makes it a breeze to find historical best-sellers. Navigate with ease, perform searches efficiently, and analyze past trends without getting bogged down in complexities.
What Can You Do With It?
Here's what the Merch Archive allows you to do:
Search by Date: Want to know what was selling during Christmas of 2018? Simply input the date range and find out.
Product Categories: Browse through both Merch and Book products to get a comprehensive view of past trends.
Seasonal Trends: Specifically filter for recurring annual events like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween.
Plan for the Future: By analyzing what sold well in the past, you can anticipate future demand and plan your inventory accordingly.
How Can This Feature Help Me?
If you’re already in the print-on-demand industry or looking to get started, the Merch Archive offers several advantages:
Historical Insight: Know what worked in the past to make smarter business decisions today.
Future Planning: Recognize recurring trends to prepare better for annual sales opportunities like holidays and seasonal events.
Risk Mitigation: By understanding what didn't sell well, you can avoid making the same mistakes, reducing financial risk.
Niche Identification: Discover underserved markets or product types that have shown strong performance in the past, giving you a competitive edge.
Time-Saving: Rather than guessing what might sell, use concrete data to directly inform your product choices, saving you both time and effort.
