If you’re starting a home-based business, planning one, or even trying to expand one, you know that you need ideas to market. Watching trends is a great way to generate new ideas. I’ve seen TrendWatching.Com mentioned in other people’s blogs, such as Denise Wakeman’s and more recently in this article by Shannon Belew. This article is a great read because it helps distinguish between trends and fads.
For sellers of products, you could use the example of healthier eating as a trend. Look a the things that health conscious people might buy. Would they buy dietary scales or juicers with advanced features perhaps? Could you invent new recipes geared toward these trends?
Watching trends can help you think of new ideas to market products or services or even to expand existing ones. Trends are everywhere if you look for them. And I think TrendWatching.Com does a great job of providing information on them. What about you? Do you find watching trends helpful?
