5 reasons your dropshipping is not making money

Traffic

The first reason people find a dropshipping site is not making money, is lack of traffic. Obviously, if your site isn’t getting traffic, no one is seeing your site. If they don’t see it, they can’t buy it. The most popular way that people use to get traffic when they are first starting out is to use paid advertising. While this can be effective it is by no means a guarantee. Often times visitors to your site will simply click through because they are curious. Is there anything to hold them there after they land on site after they click other than the product? See the interest section below

The Product

Another reason a dropshipping site is not making money could be the product itself.  If you are getting lots of traffic but no sales, then it could be the pricing, or the product itself. Depending on your traffic source, your site may have caught the interest of a visitor, but the product didn’t. With lots of traffic, but no sales, you may want to think of diversifying your monetization strategy and think about adding an alternative means  of making money such as affiliate links

Interest

If your shop is just an array of products it isn’t going to hold interest for long unless you have a popular unique product that someone cannot find anywhere else. Does your shop offer any information or something to hold a visitor’s attention or does it just scream “BUY FROM ME?”   Information will not only help keep visitors attention but it can help bring traffic to your site. If your site doesn’t hold interest then it could be why your dropshipping site is not making money.

Why your dropshipping site needs a blog

I just want to sell things!

Since your site is about selling products, and will be very visual with a lot of images. you may be asking yourself why you would need a blog. Shouldn’t you site be about selling the products? If you have great products shouldn’t just getting the visitor to the site  be enough?

While that may be true, there are several reasons why a blog may help your site and sales.

Traffic

A site without traffic isn’t much use. While you can pay for ads, or  post on social media to help drive traffic, only words can really bring search engine traffic to your site. The more words you have on your site, the more the search engines such as  Google or Bing, have to feed upon. Search engine traffic can be invaluable because it only brings users to your shop who are searching for something mentioned on your website.

Jewelry descriptions makeover

Over the next few days I’ll be revamping the jewelry descriptions. It has been about 8 months since they were created and it is time for some new language to be introduced. The new descriptions will be longer, more verbose and have a lot more information in the database to select from. I’ve started with the rings. Here is a sample below.
