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 your 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.
