There are so many Etsy tools out there, all claiming to be awesome. Some are, some aren’t.
Everbee is one of the better ones for sure.
If you’re not sure which keywords to use, and you’re struggling to come up with new products that will sell Everbee can help.
EverBee claims to be able to save you time and money and help you find new products that stand a better chance of selling.
Its data wasn’t as accurate as Alura’s when I tested it, but the functionality offered is pretty solid.
Read my EverBee review and I will tell you whether it’s worth your investment.
What Is EverBee?
EverBee is a powerful market research tool that helps Etsy sellers to boost their sales. It comes as a Chrome extension that offers keyword research and estimated information about revenue, traffic, and other analytics.
The tool provides sellers with real-time market analysis and offers suggestions for specific keywords and tags related to their products. EverBee helps Etsy sellers save time and resources in doing market research tasks, as the tool automates most of the research process.
This way, sellers can focus on more important aspects of their business, such as product creation and marketing. In conclusion, EverBee is an essential research tool that helps Etsy sellers stay ahead of their competition and achieve success in the vibrant and competitive Etsy marketplace.
How Does EverBee Work?
EverBee is a Chrome extension that once installed overlays additional features and information right into Etsy.
This sidebar appears once you install the Chrome extension.
From here you can access the key features of EverBee.
Saves time and money – Everbee is a tool that helps me confirm whether or not a potential product idea is worth pursuing. This way, I don’t waste time and money creating products that won’t sell.
Helps with product research – Everbee gives me in-depth product research in no time. I can see what products are in high demand, what’s working, and what’s not. Easy to use – Everbee is super easy to use, and the customer support team is amazing. They have helpful tutorial videos and are always available to answer any questions.
Helps create best-selling items – Everbee shows me exactly what products are best-selling, which gives me ideas for new products to create. This way, I can stay ahead of the competition and bring in more sales. Gives tag ideas – Everbee shows me the tags that the top listings are using, which gives me ideas for tags to apply to my own listings for better visibility.
Connects with my shop – Everbee needs to connect with my Etsy shop in order to provide accurate data. It doesn’t have access to my personal or shop information, and I can revoke access at any time.
EverBee Keyword Research Tool
The keyword research tool allows users to search for a particular term to indicate the number of searches, competition, and demand trends.
EverBee Product Analytics Tool
When you use Etsy Search and click on listing EverBee shows stats for the item and you can use the tool to see stats for the shop too.
You can get the same information for all items listed on a page of search results too.
The data provided, even on the free option can provide insights for your Etsy business on what items may be selling and in the highest demand. This way you can focus your energy on creating products to ride the trend and optimize your own listings based on your findings.
Is EverBee Accurate?
I tested the main two types of data, keyword volume data, and revenue data with mixed results.
Keyword Search Volume & Competition Data
As you can see from the images in the Keyword research section above the data that Everbee provides is a little different from that of eRank. eRank shows an average of 200 per month (peaks at 1200 per month down to 10 per month) whereas EverBee just states <20 per month.
The number of competitors is different too. 981 in eRank to 1172 in Everbee.
Having sold many Mountain Bike Hoodies I know that the trend chart in eRank is more accurate with a peak leading up to summer and a larger peak in the lead-up to Xmas.
EverBee uses its estimated sales algorithm to show you what an existing Etsy shop or listing earns in revenue. I tested the accuracy with the following results. For one listing the tool stated it had sold 12 times. In reality, it had sold 60 times. Not a good start. For another, it said the item had sold 36 times when it had actually sold 42 times. A little closer. On further analysis, I found that the tool isn’t accurate with the total number of sales, but it did provide valuable insights into which listings are performing well in terms of sales. So the data is useful, albeit not entirely accurate. Given that Etsy doesn’t provide sales data via its API, it’s hardly surprising that any tools for Etsy aren’t able to be precise in this area.
Is Everbee Worth It?
I would use EverBee alongside an Etsy SEO tool like eRank or Marmalead as it doesn’t give me the detailed keyword data to help with keyword ideas and optimizing my listings. However, that’s because I prefer data rather than searching through Etsy using a Chrome extension in order to provide the data I am looking for. I strongly recommend testing EverBee for yourself to see whether it works for you in the running of your Etsy business.
The good news is, EverBee offers a range of pricing plans that cater to different Etsy sellers’ needs and budgets. Everbee even offers a free plan called the Hobby Plan.
The Hobby Plan is perfect for beginners or those wanting to test out the tool. It includes revenue analytics, tag analytics, and ten analytics searches per month, without requiring any credit card details. For those looking for more features, the Pro Plan at $7.99 per month offers 30 analytic searches per month, tag analytics, and unlimited favorites folder uses. The Growth Plan at $19.99 if paid annually or $29.99 when paid monthly, is ideal for established sellers as it offers unlimited analytics searches, listing tags, and revenue estimates per month. You also get unlimited favorites folder uses and additional listing and shop data.
