This is a little gem of a module. It is one of the better modules I've come across which covers driving traffic to your store.
Without visitors to your store, you won't have any chance at survival, so you would think that this topic is well covered in all dropshipping courses.
But it is often neglected. Sarah on the other hand, has compiled a great module for beginners. Not only does it teach you many different methods for driving traffic to your site, but they're also extremely cost effective.
