Why You Should Ditch Your Ecommerce Website

    Hi, I'm Eric.
    SEMrush
    For over two years I've attempted to set up several Ecommerce websites that would fail.

    I struggled a lot to understand why all of these other people were so successful and I wasn't.

    It wasn't until recently that I figured out the fundamentals of why this all works and how I can make money too.

    If you think that it's your website that's going to makes sales then you're wrong. Don't worry though because you're not alone.

    If you are making sales, then you're probably spending a lot on FB Ads, Google Ads, or whatever source you're using to direct traffic to your site.

    So that's about it from me.

    I encourage all who agree and disagree to share their thoughts.

    1) I DO think that my website makes sales for me.
    2) I AM making sales, and have been for 12 years, and I have NEVER spent a single penny advertising it. ALL I do is CONTENT, CONTENT, CONTENT. Content is what my customers want, content is what drives customers to me, and content is WHY I have paid all of my bills for over a DECADE.

    Your website is apparently not an ecommerce website.

    Your content is what is driving people to buy from you. People must like what you have to say.

    I'm guessing you are driving people from a blog to car parts page.

    That is definitely not the same as having people arrive to an ecommerce website.

    I don't blog and I seldom post anything anywhere that would drive people my way. I simply do not have the time nor inclination.

    I essentially get all of my traffic from search engines, mostly Google. I just spend my time adding more content and taking care of the customers that come my way. According to Google when people search my average landing postion is at 7.4 which is on the first page of Google results, and also my click through rate hovers around 11% which apparently is also very good.
