2021 Business Trends

As the rollercoaster of 2020 has come to an end, the world is anxiously turning the page to 2021 to see what it has in store for us. Many areas remain uncertain, but there’s one area we can turn to for predictions: search trends. Search trends give us a real insight into the minds of our consumers. Just as economists study market trends to make predictions, business owners can track real search trends to make informed predictions that may drive their business decisions.

Pinterest, one of the most prolific reference tools, and widely used search engines in the world tracks its user’s searches and uses that data to create powerful trend reports. Based on the data they collect, they create a report called “Pinterest Predicts”, which contains data-backed predictions for each year. 8/10 of their predictions for 2020 ended up coming true, so we’re looking at their predictions for 2021. These predictions can help you, as a business owner, to determine the direction to take your marketing this year, which new products to add to your portfolio, or even new businesses to start!

Have you taken a look at your trends? What do your product sales show? Did sales grow in some areas more than others?

If you don’t have answers to these questions, it’s okay. WooCommerce has many strengths – but reporting is not one of them. QuickBooks, on the other hand, is a powerful reporting tool! We strongly suggest connecting WooCommerce and QuickBooks and mapping your products to ensure that you can sync complete sales data into QuickBooks in order to allow QuickBooks to create sales reports for you.
