Unattentive Customers
The key to any business is having many customers.  Which is why we need to pay attention to the potential customers we want to target.  When a customer searches something online, there is a long list of results that will appear in your search engine.  Customers may not pay attention if your website is not set up properly to attract customers. With the right strategy, we can ensure that your store will be visible to the right customers. The more customers we attract means we get more sales coming in.

Google Confusing Results
Just like having unattentive customers, we also need to make sure that we are giving our customers a relevant result.  Remember that each time customers browse through their internet searching about the products or services we might be offering, there are thousands of results that will appear.  

This might confuse us, especially that we are targeting more customers to buy from our store.  What is the use of your website over hundreds of competitions we are not giving our customers the most relevant results using a search engine, right?

It is also effective with dropshipping.  It is easy to sign up, post and share your products using social media.

Become an Image Marketing Influencer
Another strategy that is commonly used by people who are in the drop shipping business is to become an image marketing influencer.  This is a good way to present the branding, credibility and share personal opinions relevant to the product you are selling, and the services you provide.  

Some examples of ways how to become an influencer are by writing blogs, answer questions to Quora or Reddit.  People often use these websites to ask questions to a certain topic.
