A big part of the Low Hanging System involves throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. This applies to the designs you create and the products you sell.
White 11 ounce coffee mugs have pretty much always been my top-performing products to sell on Amazon, Etsy, and eBay. But I still like to diversify my inventory and sell a variety of items.
Every so often CustomHappy adds a new product type to its catalog, which is really fun because you can get creative coming up with new design ideas and making unique products that customers love.
Below, I want to share some of those products with you so you can see if you’d like to add any of these items to your ecommerce shops. I also talk about two of my favorite tools for finding new niches and keywords ideas to help you optimize your listings.

How to find keywords for each product to optimize sales
Coming up with creative products and designs to sell in your ecommerce business is one thing. But then you also need to optimize your listings so they attract as many potential customers as possible.
Here are two of the top resources for coming up with the best niches and keywords to use with your products:
SpotNiches is one of my absolute favorite tools. It’s super easy to use and it helps you find under-served niches and awesome keyword ideas that have lots of searches but not much competition. SpotNiches can help you earn lots more sales on Amazon, Etsy, and eBay.
Here’s an overview of how it works:
Inside SpotNiches, type a phrase, such as “accountant mug,” into the search bar and hit Search. Then, every single term associated with that phrase will pop up and SpotNiches will tell you the number of searches and the number of results there were for that phrase during the last month on Amazon, Etsy, and eBay. SpotNiches will also tell you what the opportunity is for that phrase as a percentage.
Once you get your results, what I like to do is hit the CSV button and export the results so I can copy and paste them into a spreadsheet where I can sort based on opportunity percentage (from high to low). This way, I can see at a glance where the biggest opportunity lies for my new niche and keyword ideas.

Keywords Everywhere is another great tool for niche and keyword research. Keywords Everywhere is a freemium browser add-on that you can install on Google Chrome or Firefox. And you can use this tool to find the monthly search volume and CPC and competition data about niches and keywords on Amazon, Ety, and eBay.
Here’s how it works:
You first need to install either the Chrome extension or the Firefox add-on. Then, you’ll see the Keywords Everywhere icon show up at the top right-hand side of your browser. If you plan on using the free version, that’s all you need to do. You should now be able to see all of the free niche and keyword data that’s available to you.
To learn more about how Keywords Everywhere works, especially if you want to use it as a paid user, take a look at this YouTube video: Keywords Everywhere: How to install and setup.
