The first reason people find a drop shipping 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
Another reason a drop shipping site is not making money could be the product
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 drop shipping site is not making money.
If I go to your site, how
Make your visitors feel welcome. Give them something to do on your site other than shop. This may be as simple as a video, or an interesting infographic. Make the atmosphere welcoming!
