What’s Hot? Electronic Cigarettes...

WHAT!? Horror - how could you, they are harmful, I hear you are saying - you are absolutely right and I wouldn't sell this class of products personally, no matter what margins there are. However - the purpose of the article is to show you what's trending, correct? Well, this product is!

Electronic CigarettesYou might assume that most of the best-selling giftware items online are trinkets and products that don’t have much use. However, this is not the case at all, when it comes to the top selling products within this niche market. One of the hottest giftware product out right now is, like it or not, actually the electronic cigarette. Electronic cigarettes are unusual, posses an element of novelty and innovative, marketed by its manufacturers as a 'health-friendly' (if there's such a thing) but nerveless this is one of the most searched giftware item online.

I have to admit that it is unique, not that I would ever use it myself or recommend anyone to do same. Since electronic cigarettes are so different, but still useful, they make a good selling giftware product. Electronic cigarettes produce vapor instead of smoke, which make them the somewhat healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. This hot product is incredibly innovative and one of the most popular giftware products online, amongst smoking aficionados. By the way - quitting is a good strategy if you'd ask me 🙂

Who is the Target Market and Why?

Electronic cigarettes are ideal for any consumers that are looking for a somewhat more health conscious gift if directed at smoker. This type of product is designed to be the 'better' alternative to traditional cigarettes and the best way to quit smoking. The target market for this type of product is a bit more selective and includes those people that smoke and are looking for a better alternative. When online shoppers are searching for electronic cigarettes to buy, the features that matter most include battery life, size and compatibility with e-juices.

What’s Hot? Ballpoint Pens - yes the old, good pens!

Ballpoint PensIf there is one giftware or promotional gift product that is not falling off in popularity anytime soon, it is the ballpoint pen. This has been one of the hottest products within this niche market for a long time, but it is still a best seller. The best part about this giftware item, is that it allows for the most customization. From fashionable, to cartoon and even metal, there are endless style options to choose from. Even LED ballpoint pens are becoming a hot item online.

Ballpoint pens are more of a promotional item, but they also fit into the giftware niche. One of the best aspects of this product is affordability. Online shoppers are looking for a great deal and selling ball point pens comes down to pricing this product correctly.

Remember - this is a low ticket product, can be used as a loss leader or an addition to your main line of the products. The reason it's so popular in the giftware niche and amongst promotional product companies - because it gives an ability to deliver and keep a marketing message in front of the customer as they are using the pen. Of course for this - the pen must be of great quality and high in perceived value!

Who is the Target Market and Why?

This giftware and promotional product has a target that ranges from businesses to traditional consumers. Almost everyone has a need for ballpoint pens and as a result the target market for this product is really large. Not only is this a hot product, but ballpoint pens cater to a large audience. Everyone can find a use for a ballpoint pen, which is why it is still one of the hottest giftware items available for purchase online. Ballpoint pens of different colors and options with retractable logos are what online customers are looking for at the highest rate.
