Uncommongoods.com is a unique website, they sell niche creative items. And because the definition of niche creative is open-ended it’s a challenge for them to predict which item will sell well versus not at all. And that makes it difficult to purchase inventory. Well, uncommongoods.com has found a workaround. They have a page called “vote on product” where shoppers can vote up or down 100s of items (click image below to visit page)–
Items that receive the most community votes are added to the site. This is a win win– shoppers feel their opinions count and uncommongoods.com can estimate demand before buying inventory.
