Why You Should Use Blog?
Power blog is a unique tool for reactivating existing customers and attracting new people to your store. Visitors who come to your site for info purposes can subscribe to your blog news or even buy something!
Work with different content - text articles, image galleries, videos, posts on places, and events tagged on maps to write useful articles for your store and get additional search traffic. We made sure that your articles appear in search results. You may automatically generate SEO data and include new blog pages into the XML sitemap.
Want to save articles from the default CS-Cart? Import them into one of the Power Blog categories in a few clicks. You don’t have to start from scratch!
After attracting a visitor to the site, the work does not end. Our goal is to get a new client (sell a product) or a subscriber (try to sell a product later). Power Blog allows you to do both: attach related products to posts, send articles to subscribers via email.
Power blog allows you to link articles to products, product categories, brands, and events - create a single space with easy navigation between articles and associated products.
Take the opportunity to expand your readership many times over - post blog articles on the popular services Yandex.Zen, Yandex.News and Yandex.turbo. The process of updating news feeds is automated with the help of the CRON command.
With the growing number of blog posts, it’s crucial that your articles are not lost. For easy navigation, Power Blog uses a convenient structure with categories and sections, a separate search form, and article tags. You can easily create and customize blogs for each storefront separately in the multi-storefront versions of the platform.
