It’s not magic, its logic….
Firstly you need to understand that blog posts improve SEO, which in turn helps to drive traffic to your site. You can convey your message and lets you tell stories that convert visitors to customers and that will definitely increase chance of engagement. This is called Content Marketing.

A post is likely to generate thousands of views over its lifetime and besides who will not like to generate sales on some post made a few years ago.
