Welcome to Selling Well.
This is a new series where we cover products that are already selling well based on our exclusive e-commerce data sets and models. Today we are discussing dog beds and dog mats.
We have currently more than 1000+ products related to dog beds and mats.
You can check out these products by searching for them inside our platform at all times, but here are some of them:
Initially, these kinds of dog products stood out because of a single store that is selling over $150k/m of a particular dog bed. Specifically, an orthopedic dog bed.
This store is:
Paw.com® has recently started. Formerly, it was called treatadog.com. The first big lesson is that the store owners have now niched their store down to only sell products around dog beds specifically.
This is clear if you look at the former store description: "Treat a Dog is a one-stop shop for everything dog!" versus the current store description: "Top-rated orthopedic dog bed provides the best memory foam dog bed support for your pet's joints. Our pet beds are great for injured or older dogs with arthritis."
They have currently 50 products around dog bets at this time, mostly added on August 2019. The average product value is currently ~$125, with the most expensive product selling for $270 and the least expensive product selling for $15.
They use remarketing on Google and Facebook and use Hotjar to track customers' behavior on the site. On Facebook, they built a page with over 200,000 likes, and they also use Twitter. They also have an Instagram page that has reached almost 50k followers.
They seem to be using a tool called Rise Ai to handle git cards on the store.
Their best-selling product is a curve orthopedic dog bed in white color, which sells discounted for $119 (full price: $324).
In the last 30 days, we tracked 1455 units sold (which account for ~$173k overall). The product sells at all times, but it sells far better on the weekend as you can see from the graph below. This is consistent with almost all of their products.
They only target the US market specifically, which they market to using Facebook and Instagram ads, as well as using the audience network and messenger placements on Facebook. They use video and image ads like these:

As you can see, they market (like you should) around holidays like Halloween and e-commerce events like Black Friday.
Interestingly for Halloween, they created a landing page that is not on Shopify to kind of guide the user to the product he/she wanted to buy. They do this for other products as well, with landing pages like this and this. They also experiment with Fb canvas from time to time.
In the 7 days, this store sold ~$66k worth of just their core products, dog beds. That's about ~$10k/day. And it's not even counting their complimentary products: car seat covers, waterproof blankets, and safety belts.
