I hate Chinese New Year (CNY)! Don’t get me wrong, I love Chinese culture but for an industry that depends so heavy on trendy products that mostly come from China, its crazy to see all that come to a halt for like a month. Not only that but CNY comes during Tax season when so many more customers will have more spending money.
So why did I go on a little rant about CNY? Well its because almost every month at least 50% of my sales are from 2 or 3 products that are hot that month. With nothing new being announced for a solid month, there is only “old” products to sell. In only a matter of months many products become obsolete and lose their profit margins.
But thankfuly that is coming to an end. I went to ECC in Ontario CA early Feb, 2018. There was a lot of hardware manufacturers there all showing unannounced products that will be officially announced post CNY, Pure gold.
Here are the products I feel you should prepare now for.
