A quick way to tell if a product is in demand is to do a Google product search and see who else is promoting this product or a similar one. If multiple paid ads, we can see at top right of the page that the product is sold and has acceptance and if there is no announcement in this regard is not worth promoting it and we go better look for another product. Although competition is not too high then we may be wise to sell hard and we may have to reconsider the promotion of that product.
If we want to check if the product demand is certain uniform in time or have a temporary or it is seasonal demand or fashionable at the time we can use other demand tool like Google Trends that have data from 2004 and also provides information on countries and cities with more demand, also use very useful information if we want to advertise the product on Facebook.
