While Magento isn’t the go-to platform for blogs it can be useful for store owners to have a quick and easy way to post updated content to their store without having to create static pages.
Adding a blog to your eCommerce website can be a relatively easy way to boost your online profile. It generates traffic for your business and increases your brand awareness. A blog also gives you a direct line of communication with your customers to update them with changes and trends to your product catalogue and services.
There are plenty of options when it comes to free and paid-for blog extensions these are some of the best options. These are four of my go-to extensions - whenever one is required.
