Sell The Trend Review: What Product Research Tools Are Included?

Sell The Trend Review: Learn how Sell The Trend Works. Is this the best product research tool for dropshipping?

You can see what Sell The Trend does in the image above.

The great thing is that you can do each of these steps yourself with all the different tools that they have inside.

It’s like you’re subscribing to a lot of different product research tools, right? Well, you got all of this inside one tool!

Awesome, right?

And do you see the active products in the left corner? They currently have more than 2 million products!

That blew my mind for sure.

You know what?

Now, in 2020, they almost have 4 million products in their product research tool!


Sell The Trend Review: Will This Be Your Next Winning Product Research Tool?

Are you ready to learn what’s inside this dropshipping product research tool and if it’s worth it to get it yourself?

Well, then let’s go!

I will show you what each tool does inside Sell The Trend.

After that, I will give you my personal opinion of that tool in the form of a conclusion. Is that tool worth using? Can they improve something? And so on.

And of course, in the end, I will give you my final conclusion if I think this product research tool is worth it or not!

Some great things in each product research tool inside Sell The Trend

I will first show you a few things that are great and that you can find in each of these tools that I’m about to review for you.

Each tool has a favorite section

You can press the red heart in the corner of the product, store of Facebook ad. This way you can keep scrolling without having to worry where that awesome product, store or ad was that you liked so much!

The heart in the right corner!

I used this product so you can see the heart, but it might be a great product to sell as well haha!

As you can see, 19 popular stores are selling this product at the moment. More on that below!

Each tool has a lot of filtering and sorting options

And with a lot, I mean a lot. I still didn’t try them all yet.

For example, see these screenshots below of the filtering and sorting options of their “Nexus” (I will get to what that is below!).

Here you can see the filtering options:

Sell The Trend Review: AliExpress Trend Explorer. Dropshipping product research tool inside Sell The Trend

And here you can see the sorting options:

Awesome, right?

You can sort most of the results of these tools by niches and Categories

You can see the screenshot below for some of the niches that you can sort by.

And the screenshot below will show you what kind of categories you can sort by.

Categories are broader terms, like Jewelry and Beauty & Health.

I think this is awesome if you don’t have any inspiration yet about which niche to pick for your dropshipping store.

Each page has a “What’s on this page” text

This will display a short text about what that current tool does when you hover over it with your mouse.

It also got a video play button next to it which will show you a video demonstration of that tool.

That’s why I thought it was so easy to use when I first tried it.

AliExpress Trend Explorer

Sell The Trend Review: AliExpress Trend Explorer. Also part of the product research tool Sell The Trend

Do you know what would be great?

To see all the hot products, new stars and hidden gems on AliExpress, right?

Well, you can with their AliExpress trend explorer!

Like I said above, you will have a lot of filtering and sorting options. Like filtering to only show products priced over a certain amount. Or to only show products over a certain amount of orders. You can even sort if that product has a video available or not.

What I like the most is that they show a graph with each product. This graph gives you some information, like how many orders the product had over time.

This means that you need to look for a product with a graph that’s going up! Like this product:

This is an example of a graph that's going. This means that this could sell well!
This product is just as an example for the graph. Not saying you should sell screen protectors!

The best products then, of course, are the ones where the graph doesn’t have a flat line and it seems like it’s going up and up. This means that there is a demand for that product.

Conclusion of the AliExpress trend explorer

I love that they show you so much data, especially the graph. It’s great that you can see how well the product is selling on AliExpress. Is that product getting any orders these past weeks, or not?

Personally, for me, it was quite overwhelming, because there were so many products.

I could keep scrolling and new products came popping up where I never ever had heard of.

But I guess this is a good thing. It showed me how much data they have.

And one more thing about the video sorting option. It could be me, but most of the times when Sell The Trend said a product had a video available and I clicked through to AliExpress, then I couldn’t find any video there.

Amazon Trend Explorer

Sell The Trend Review: Amazon Trend Explorer. Dropshipping product research tool inside Sell The Trend

As you probably know Amazon is a great site to do product research. To see what sells well.

Now you can let Sell The Trend do the boring part.

This tool will show you the hot products, hidden gems, and new stars on Amazon at this moment.

Just like with the AliExpress trend explorer, they will give each product Trend Points.

Amazon product example from the product research tool Sell The Trend

You can see how much it increases each day and the overall increment since they began tracking the product.

Conclusion of the Amazon trend explorer

I thought it was amazing that you don’t have to go to Amazon anymore and manually look at how each product is ranking for each category.

Yes, you can’t sort on dropshipping products, but neither can you do that on Amazon.

You use Amazon to get product ideas and see what’s hot and selling well because it’s a great sign if something is selling well on Amazon.

Shopify Store Explorer

You got two options inside this tool, the product, and the store explorer.

Shopify Product explorer

The first option is the product explorer.

This shows every product from every store that they are tracking.

Like with each explorer tool, you got a lot of filtering and sorting options available to you.

Great thing is that you can filter by “Dropshipping Verified”. This will only show you products that are confirmed to be from stores that are focused on dropshipping.

Sell The Trend Review: Shopify Product Explorer. Dropshipping product research tool inside Sell The Trend

While making this screenshot above, I found one thing that Sell The Trend doesn’t do correctly.

Look at the prices of the 2 products on the right. Anything weird? Bit high, right?

Well, that’s because the price of that Shopify store isn’t in dollars!


But other than that, it’s still great to see all the products from all the Shopify (dropshipping) stores that they are tracking currently.

Shopify Store explorer

The second option is the store explorer.

This shows every Shopify store that they are currently tracking.

The great thing, as with the option above, is that you can filter by dropshipping stores. This will only show you Shopify dropshipping stores.

But as you might have guessed already, they have a lot more data available for you.

You can see an example of their current top 4 dropshipping stores in the screenshot below.

As you can see, they show you a lot more information than just a Shopify store name.

  • They will show you how much traffic per month each store is getting. I think it’s an estimate. If they don’t have that information for that store, then they will show you “Low Traffic”.
  • They also show you how much that store spends on tech (like Shopify apps) each month. Again I think it’s an estimate.
  • They will also show you if they found any tracking on that store. Like from Facebook or Google.

Conclusion of the Shopify store explorer

I absolutely love this tool. I used it for one of my popular articles: Awesome Dropshipping Store Examples.

It gave me an easy way to find other Shopify dropshipping stores out there. To see what everyone else is doing with their product descriptions, home pages and so on. Definitely a great way to learn!

I found so many dropshipping store examples that I might even write a second article with bad dropshipping store examples!

One thing though, not all dropshipping stores are “Dropshipping Verified”. So if you can’t find any more dropshipping stores, then try searching without that filter enabled.

Facebook Ad Explorer

Sell The Trend Review: Facebook Ad Explorer. Find a lot of Facebook ads in the product research tool Sell The Trend!

Next up, the Facebook Ad explorer!

You can easily find all kinds of Facebook ads with this tool.

You can filter the posts that are being shown by:

  • Post Type. Photo ads, Video ads or anything.
  • Published Data. Last 7 days, 30 days, 3 months or anytime.

And you can sort the posts by:

  • Post Data. Most recent or least recent
  • Engagement. Most views, comments, reactions, shares, and clicks!

You can even type in keywords that you might have used before when searching for ads in the Facebook search bar! For example:

  • 50% / 60% Off (or any other percent off)
  • Get Yours Now / Here
  • Free Shipping
  • Get It Here
  • Get It Now
  • Just Pay Shipping
  • Click Link
  • Buy Now
  • Limited Supply

One more great thing about this tool is that you can select trackable ads.

This will only show you Facebook ads with links that they can track. Like bit.ly where you can put a + at the end of the URL to see more information about that link.

You can filter and sort these Facebook ads the same as I explained above.

Conclusion of the Facebook ad explorer

This tool got everything you need to find Facebook ads. You will also have a lot of options available to sort and filter. So you can find the best Facebook ads for you!

You can’t sort on dropshipping ads though. So you could see a few ads from other pages that aren’t dropshipping.

So yes, it might be hard for someone to find Facebook ads from dropshipping stores, but the nice thing is that you have a lot of options to find them!

Like typing your keyword and sorting by engagement, like: “Most Views”. This will give a lot of popular Facebook Ads.

For example, the screenshot below. You can see, a lot of them are from dropshipping stores.

I typed: “50% off” and scrolled down

You could, of course, also try searching without typing any keyword at all.

So, this tool is not only great to find products that are being advertised on Facebook right now, but also to get inspiration on how to make your own Facebook ad better and more converting!

You can even find dropshipping stores that are advertising right now on Facebook. Go see what makes them successful!

The Nexus Product Research Machine

Sell The Trend Review: The Nexus Product Research Machine. Is this the best Dropshipping Product Research tool?

The Nexus. This is their powerful product research machine!

If you’re not that interested in these tools above or simply don’t have the time to look at each one manually, then this is the tool for you!

It combines all the tools, that I reviewed above, and shows you what products are trending, hot and on the rise. It even shows you which Shopify stores are hot and trending!

Do you remember this image from the beginning?

Learn how Sell The Trend Works. Is this the best product research tool for dropshipping?

These steps are all the tools I reviewed for you above. Now finally comes the last step; The Nexus!

This tool does a lot. So if you want to know more about it, then I suggest watching this video from them below. They will explain everything to you!

NEXUS Dropshipping Winning Product Research Tool | Sell The Trend

I want to add one more great thing to make it easier to see if a product could be a winning product or not. It’s this image:

Conclusion of the Nexus product research machine

I guess you already know what I’m going to say. This one is awesome!

You can find so many products that you can sell and you don’t even need that much time for that!

I will show you an example of a product from their Nexus below! This product was on their Hot Products section and it took me less than 10 seconds to find. It was literally on the first row.

Sell The Trend dropshipping product example

Sell The Trend Dropshipping product example
The red stripes are markers from me

Here are a few things explained when you found a product you liked:

  • Selling on 5 popular stores. This will show you how many popular Shopify stores are selling that product.
  • Orders. This will show you the total amount of orders that the product has.
  • Profit margin. This is only the selling price -- the product cost. No advertisement costs and so on.
  • Sales! They multiply the orders with the selling price. This way you can easily see an estimate of how much money people spend on that product.
Let’s talk about the buttons at the bottom!

These buttons will bring you to the platform that you click on. They will automatically search for the name of your product.

For example, the Facebook button will bring you to Facebook where you can view the Facebook posts of that product.

Yes, as you can see with this product, the product name is long.

Although, not all product names are long, as you can see in the screenshot below of another hot product from their Nexus!

Sell The Trend Dropshipping product example

Here you can see the example if you press on the AliExpress button:

Or on the Amazon button:

And here is one of the Shopify stores that are currently selling this product:

Let’s talk about the best button now. You might have seen it already in the screenshot above and wondered what it was.

I’m talking about the green “Product Research” button.

If you click on it, then you can see all the data they have from that product. Even a graph, which shows you if the orders are going up daily or staying the same.

Nexus Product Research: This is a product example with a graph of the amount of orders/

It’s easy to understand so I don’t think I need to give any more explanation for this screenshot.

Although, I will say something about the Facebook Targeting at the bottom.

They will give you Facebook Targeting suggestions with each product. This is great if you don’t have any idea where to start with selling the product that you just found.

Was that enough data for you to do product research?

Well, if it’s not, then read on!

You can press on “Stores Trend” on the product you like. It’s at the right of the product price.

This will give you the “Time Machine”. You got two options here.

One is to view the timeline. You can easily see when the product has been added to a Shopify store.

This is great if you find a product that has been added a few times already the past week. This indicates that the product is trending!

You can also see a chart if you prefer that more.

Sell The Trend Review: Extra tools inside Sell The Trend

If these product research tools above aren’t enough for you to convince you that this tool is great, then they have a few more awesome tools for you to get the best dropshipping store out there.

Yes, these tools below might not be perfect for the more experienced dropshippers (it might miss some features), but don’t forget that these are all included in one tool. No need to pay anything extra.

If you think that you have read enough and want to try the trial already, then you can click here or the image below to start your 7-day free trial!

Facebook audience builder

In case you need some ideas for your Facebook ad targeting, then they got you covered with this tool.

Sell The Trend Facebook Audience Builder

You can press on a popular audience on the right or type your keyword in the search bar.

They will give you some tips on what interests you can target if you want to sell something in that niche.

Conclusion of the Facebook audience builder

I think it’s awesome if you don’t know where to start with your Facebook ad targeting.

And even if you’re experienced, I think you will still get some great ideas from them.

Like I saw when I pressed on Home decor a section with Jobs. I didn’t think of targeting an interior designer before.

And it’s great if you don’t have much experience in the niche that you want to sell a product in. This way you got some starting points with the targeting.

So, yes definitely nice that they added this as well to their big list of tools!

Video Ads Creator

This is perfect if you’re just beginning with dropshipping or if you don’t know how to make a video ad yet.

You can either upload your images to this tool directly or you can let it fetch the image from an image URL.

After that, you will have a few options that you can select to make your video ad perfect. You can see them on the screenshot below

Sell The Trend Video Ad Creator
Conclusion of the video ads creator

It’s definitely easy to use and it got a lot of options to create your first video ad.

But this tool might not be as great if you got some experience with, for example, making videos, then this tool will be too basic for you and might be too limited in the options it has.

Like you can set a text on the top and bottom, but you can’t change it (yet) to a different text when a new image comes up.

Engagement Rating Calculator

Sell The Trend Engagement Rating Calculator

You can use this tool for Instagram and Twitter influencers.

It’s an easy way to see what the influencer’s rating is. For Instagram, just fill in the number of followers, likes, and comments. You can also fill in the number of retweets for Twitter influencers.

The likes, comments, and retweets are either from one post or you can take a rough estimate of their average from all their posts (or the last 9, for example).

Conclusion of the engagement rating calculator

It’s a nice little tool that got included here. Definitely didn’t expect it to be included in the first place.

It got it’s downsides though, like you need to make the estimate of their average comments and likes your self.

In case you don’t want to do that, then just use the free Phlanx tool for this. You can fill in the Instagram handle and it will automatically give you their engagement rate.

Discovery Machine

This extra tool doesn’t need much explanation or review. It’s simply awesome if you can’t get any ideas at this moment.

Just press “Spin Again” and you will get 4 random things from the tools I showed you above.

You can look at the screenshot below for an example!

Sell The Trend Discovery Machine

Maybe the only downside that I found for this tool was that I startled from the sound. It was a bit too loud for me and didn’t expect that sound there.

But yeah that was personal, maybe my sound volume was just too loud at that moment.

Sell The Trend Review: Free Dropshipping Course Included

Free Dropshipping Course is included in the product research tool Sell The Trend

Yes, you read that right. 9 free videos are included where they teach you the basics of dropshipping.

Bad thing? You can also watch almost all of these videos on their YouTube channel. So it’s not really exclusive for their tool subscribers.

Except for the last two videos. You can only watch these two when you’re subscribed!

Sell The Trend Review: 2020 Updates

Sell The Trend is definitely not standing still with its product research tool.

I will go over all the things that they have changed since I published this review!

First off, they have added a country breakdown tab in the Nexus product research page.

This way, you can easily see which countries are selling the product that you’re researching.

Another thing that they have added is that you can add the products directly to your Shopify dropshipping store!

And they kept updating that feature:

Awesome, right?

You can even filter products now in Sell The Trend that have US Shipping available.

If you don’t want to ship from the US, then they also show ePacket availability now in the Fulfillment Source section of the Push To Store Page!

Another thing that they have added is that you can now filter by the number of stars as well as the number of reviews that a product has in the Aliexpress Explorer.

Now you can quickly see if a product has good reviews or not.

In the example above, I sorted the products by “Store highest feedback”, and I filtered the products by “Stars over 4.8”.

The last thing that they have added to make your product research faster is that you can now find all your favorites by pressing the heart icon at the right top corner.

This way, you don’t have to go to each tool inside Sell The Trend to find the products, stores, or Facebook Ads that you liked.

Sell The Trend Review: Discount Code

Are you looking for a Sell The Trend discount code?

Currently, there are no discount codes for Sell The Trend, but I will update this article immediately once there is a discount code available!

Sell The Trend Review: Trial

Although Sell The Trend doesn’t offer any discount codes at this moment, they do offer a free 7-day trial for anyone who wants to try their product research tool without risking any money.

The great thing about their trial is that you can cancel your subscription any time you want.

This way you can use the trial, but you don’t have to be scared that you need to pay money if you don’t like the tool!

You Can Find Their Free 7-Day Trial Here!

Sell The Trend Review: Pricing

Like I said above, they offer you a free 7-day trial. This way you can check out the product research tool for your self. If you don’t like it, then you can cancel it directly without any costs!

The subscription price of Sell The Trend is currently $39 per month.

Sell The Trend Monthly Pricing

But you will get 2 months for free if you pay yearly.

Sell The Trend Yearly Pricing

The great thing is that they offer fast 24/7 support!

Sell The Trend Review: Final Conclusion

One word? Wow.

This tool got such a nice combination of so many product research tools and extra tools that you don’t expect in a dropshipping product research tool. Add that all up and I think Sell The Trend is definitely worth subscribing to.

As you saw in my conclusions, I enjoyed using each and every tool and even used one (the Shopify store explorer) for one of my articles.

One last thing, in case you don’t want to pay for any product research tool yet and you tried their free trial already, then keep an eye on their blog.

They have “Winning Products Friday” episodes where they give you a winning dropshipping product for free.

For example:
