Have you ever used Etsy's Pounce feature?

It's fun to use, but it's also a useful business tool. Instead of searching Etsy to see what's for sale, you can use Pounce to see what people are actually BUYING. You can also use it to find successful shops so you can visit them to see what they are doing right. It's an amusing way to do market research.

Give it a try!

Thanks, Sue!

This is good, Sue. I actually have done that many times. Sometimes you see trends,other times it's very random. And always fun!

Excellent post! I have pounced a lot even before I joined any threads or teams - it is also interesting to pounce at different times, aka AM then PM; also, weekends etc. :D
