Trend research involves tracking the phrases, products, and content that generate the most interest among your target demographic. Trend research takes the guesswork out of understanding your audience so you can spend more time promoting your products or services. Here are a few trending data tools to add to your toolbox for market trends:
The Market Explorer tool creates a visual overview of the current market in your selected country. Use the tool to review your market’s audience demographics, highlight any key competitors, estimate your current market share, and much more.
The Traffic Analytics tool allows businesses to gain insight into their competitor’s traffic and onsite activity. Use this tool if you want to evaluate a new market or to identify any trends among your competitors that you can tap into.
Google Trends is a free tool that can help identify topics to stay ahead of the curve. Keyword research is a pivotal part of creating content for websites and social platforms. It shows the terms and phrases people are searching for and which ones have the potential to be the most engaging to your customers.
You can also use Google Trends’ YouTube filter to keep an eye on trending YouTube activity. Much like a regular Google Trends search, you can view worldwide, categorical, and specific country data for YouTube trends.
Google also allows you to filter by how performance. For example, the search topic in the image above is currently set to view these results by which topics are rising in popularity. However, this can also be set to show the top search trends.
YouTube has continued to dominate when it comes to content generation. And with no signs of slowing down, it’s essential that businesses can recognize when a trend may be emerging on the platform.
Although your YouTube homepage will vary, it can still help you understand trends. You can also follow your closest competitors, celebrities, or influencers who are working with a competitor brand, or even completely new and diverse YouTubers that are establishing the current trends.
