Running a drop ship website is a great type of home-based business. You don’t have to handle products; someone else does that for you. But just like any time of business you must market it. One of the best ways to market your site is to put a blog on it.
If your drop ship ecommerce website allows plug-ins such as WordPress, you can install the software and start blogging away. You can download WordPress for free by the way. Why would you put a blog on an ecommerce drop ship website?
Well, if you have a drop ship website, then you’ve got products on the site. There are always industry stories about the products and/or the manufacturers that produce them. You can take those industry stories and re-form them or add your own spin on them. This helps you give your website a unique appeal and will help to differentiate your business.
A blog will give your drop ship site fresh content. Search Engines love fresh content and the more often you use your blog to produce content, the more the search engine spiders will visit your site to ‘gobble up’ that content. There is even some anecdotal evidence that blogs get preferential treatment by the search engines; particularly Google.
Regardless, blogs on your drop ship site are an excellent way to connect with your site visitors (probably a more important to have one). By putting your thoughts and observations down, you can give your site visitors something no one else can. Even if your competition has a blog, it won’t be exactly the same.
