Researching The Scrapbooking Market

The popularity of scrapbooking has inspired a wide variety of scrapbooking products.  There are many brands and variations of scrapbook paper, page protectors, stickers, die-cuts, and other items used in scrapbooking.  One of the keys to a successful scrapbooking business is researching the market to determine which products will sell well, and at what prices. 

One thing that can help you find the best sellers is going to a local scrapbooking store.  While some online stores carry a large variety of items and brands, smaller stores generally only keep items on hand that sell well locally.  If you are going to sell online, however, keep in mind that there may be products that sell well online that don’t do as well in your local area. 

eBay is an excellent source of information about what sells and what doesn’t.  Simply go to the site and do a search on scrapbooking supplies, or the particular type or brand of supply that you are interested in. 

Then go to the Search Options section on the side of the page, check the box that says Completed Listings and click Show Items.  This will bring up items whose listings have ended, and tell you whether or not they sold.  You can also view the price that they sold for if applicable. 

Froogle is another helpful online source for scrapbooking information.  It is a comparison shopping site that allows online stores to list their products for free, making it a valuable resource for shoppers and retailers alike.  You can use Froogle to find the going rate for almost any product.  Doing a general search on scrapbooking will also give you some insight into the top brand names.

Scrapbooking’s popularity has led many scrapbooking fans to start websites and blogs covering the hobby.  These can provide valuable information from the point of view of fellow scrapbookers.  Some offer product reviews and recommendations, while others feature various techniques. 

Staying on top of this information can prove to be a tremendous asset to your business.  If you find a blog that is particularly helpful, you can subscribe to its feed through a feed reader and be notified when it is updated.

Attending craft fairs and other events that relate to scrapbooking can be beneficial in a number of ways.  You can see which products and techniques are the most popular.  You can research pricing strategies.  And you can possibly network with potential customers and owners of businesses that are complimentary to yours.  You can find out about these events in your local paper or online.

Researching the market is important in any business, and scrapbooking is no exception.  The fact that there are so many different products available makes knowing the top brands and products essential.  Using a combination of local and online resources can help you find all of the information you need.
