Nowadays everyone knows the difference between the Payoneer MasterCard and Entropay Prepaid Visa Card. If you’re in hurry and need quick comparison so check out the forum topic otherwise read this complete article. Today I’m writing this article to let them my readers why i recommend Entropay than Payoneer? Most of the folks will be suspicious why my title giving more precedence to Entropay whereas it is virtual prepaid card conversely Payoneer is a hard or physically MasterCard.

Why Recommend Entropay Than Payoneer?

I started to use Entropay first than after I experienced Payoneer. Few years back, I was using Entropay for Facebook and other online money buying products.

Pros For Payoneer MasterCard?

  • Payoneer Company will ship this card on your given location free of cost.
  • A Hard card, means physically you can touch this similar like your bank ATM card.
  • Its flexible and trustworthy company with millions of satisfied customers around the world.
  • You can withdrawal money anywhere in the world from any of the nearby ATM machine to you, which has the MasterCard label on it.
  • Online account access to check your transactions and reeving payments.
  • You can integrate your Payoneer card to withdrawal your payment directly from your ad networks such as infolinks and also from the merchant namely 2checkout etc.
  • Payoneer is free and anyone who has national identify card or passport is eligible for that.

Cons of Payoneer MasterCard?

  • It is slightly expensive as compared to Entropay.
  • It has fixed monthly fee.

Entropay Virtual Card Pros?

Entropay is one of the fastest growing company and somehow I felt and experienced EntroPay is better than Payoneer in terms of cost and user perspective. Let me first elaborate their characteristics.

  • Entropay is a virtual debt visa card
  • Entropay charge 4.95% of each amount you upload in your card via your bank ATM debt or credit card.
  • If you have Entropay premium verified account so you can upload more than $20k/month and that is pretty enough amount.
  • With verified premium account you can create as much as virtual visa cards and can use it online where ever you like.
  • Entropay virtual visa card expiration time frame is almost 1 year at current time.
  • You can also withdrawal your virtual visa card finds directly in your bank account.
  • Entropay doesn’t charge for each transaction, they will charger only one time when you upload money as I stated above.
  • You can also watch your incoming and outgoing payment statements for each card separately.

Entropay Virtual Card Cons?

  • It is not a tangible card like Payoneer
  • It doesn’t accept almost (Local) bank ATM’s while upload money in your card.

I personally used both and what I realized is? Payoneer name seems expensive from cost perspective and Entropay is cheap. Eventually, I admire both cards qualities and functionalities that how it helps to freelancers and digital marketers. I would love to listen your stories and experience with these both cards.

Most powerful and valuable source is website from where your client can get satisfaction because of your virtually presence or keep in touch with you very easily.

According to my perception a website can be proven better than your thoughts. Just you need a right direction and right person who put you at the top of the stairs without facing any troubles.

To start a website, just you need a .com/.net/.info/.org/.edu domain name and a secure hosting server to start your journey.

Why Domain and Hosting & What that is?

Domain and hosting are two most crucial part of website. Without domain & hosting you cannot go ahead. Domain is a particular web address which helps users to reach to your business page same like your physical shop or office address.

Hosting is a place where your data will be stored such as text/images/videos etc. In simple words, hosting is a location which you rent out for a particular time period to host your website data, in technical line we says ‘servers’.

Usually a .com domain cost is $9.99 USD unlike Hosting cost vary with different companies. We recommend few hosting providers HostGator, Siteground and HosterDay. For initial level business their shared hosting packages are good to go.

You can simply check it out HosterDay pricing by using the below link:

Inside headers a logo right hand side section for a particular advertisement depends on client requirements and a navigation bar (Additional can be on top before the logo and right hand section).

Body container contains so many aspects as usual it depends on your business such as for a blogger inside the body container a post title or before title a full width images etc. and after the title absolute post content can be a combination of anything such as text, images, galleries, videos, slides, documents and so many.

And in the footer as usual copyrights text or can place few things such as social media icons, few specific links etc.

All graphically task should be done in Adobe illustrator or Corel Draw or Photoshop.

3. Create & Built Your Social Presence:

Until you have no social presence, you cannot be a pro-business person. Nowadays every internet user spending at least 2 hour in a day on social platforms whether it is Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc. So the question is that how you can grab the business from Social media? Is that something kind of trick? Not exactly! But there are so many ways and one of them is Facebook Business Page. Same like this every celebs have their Facebook pages to interact their fans or convey their thoughts and daily updates etc. Only once click and your product is in front of millions of targeted audience.

Around internet there is no numbers of social media platforms but popular are few ones. Just imagine if you promote your product on all of them so how much business you can grab it in a day/week/month or a particular time period.

Social media presence also a great tool to keep in touch with your clients in every minute. Even you can sell you products on your social media pages by integrating apps with your business page. Just you need a plan and strategy from our expert’s consultants which can put your business on the heights of mountains.

What Are Merge Tags in MailChimp

When we talk about email marketing so we must know about their basic factors as well as latest trends. As we know that MailChimp is one of the popular email marketing service provider and it has a features namely ‘Merge Tags’ to handle content dynamically. If you are not familiar with MailChimp anymore so read our article about What is MailChimp and its features? Let’s come back on topics, when you create a template or email format in your MailChimp account so the basic purpose of this template is looks professional and convey their message properly. Merge tags in MailChimp is an advance functionality in MailChimp which can easily handle your content headache dynamically.

What Are Merge Tags in MailChimp:

Merge tags is one of the core characteristics because each tag keeps as many as queries linked from the list directly. You can see your Merge tag option in your MailChimp account by follow this path List > Choose any List > SettingsList fields and *|MERGE|* tags.

Let me go into depth, let’s suppose if you have 10k subscribers in your MailChimp list so your company assign you a task to launch a campaign, which contains every subscriber name (Full Name) in starting as usual as well as mention each subscriber current living city name in the opening paragraph too. So let’s suppose you have each subscriber full name and city name listed in your MailChimp list already. So how you will implement this strategy, because each subscriber have different name even city name.

What you will do then? One answer is create MailChimp template for each subscribers as usual with their names and city name manually, this way is nightmare for anyone. No one have time to spend couple of days to create MailChimp template with each subscriber information separately.

The another most superior solution is ‘Merge tags’ which can handle your subscriber each listed field dynamically. MailChimp Merge tags allows you to assign a particular merge tag with particular field of column. In simple words, if you have three fields listed already respectively First Name, Last Name and Email Address. So what MailChimp will do, assign a particular tag to each column such as *|FNAME|* for Subscriber First Name same as *|LNAME|* for Subscriber Last name and *|EMAIL|* to show Subscriber Email Address so if you put these tags in your email template so MailChimp will pick all subscriber names directly from a particular column from which this tag belongs. So that is something kind of reference of a particular field. Review the below examples to understand this theory.

Email Template Example with Merge Tags: (Before Rendering)

Hello *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*,
Hope your are fine today. Your *|EMAIL|* has been confirmed now! If you have any question to us so please let us know feel free. Thank you!

Above Example Preview : (After Rendering Merge Tags)

Hello John Lee,
Hope your are fine today. Your examples@gmail.com has been confirmed now! If you have any question to us so please let us know feel free. Thank you!

So from this way you don’t need to create separate template for each subscriber, only one template will cover all of the subscribers dynamically. I always love to work with Merge tags in MailChimp because it looks professional and saves lots of times even this MailChimp features is available in free plan so small entrepreneurs or bloggers can avail from it. There are no threshold of merge tags in MailChimp and also can create new merge tags in MailChimp with no worries. You can see the MailChimp All Merge Tags Cheat Sheets.

How Payoneer Can Be Cheaper

Payoneer is considered in popular online payment gateways due to their efficiency and instant payments. Payoneer is the best way to send and receive payment beyond the borders, I mean to say internationally. If you have no Payoneer Card so far so you need know that how to get Payoneer with $25 bonus. As we know that Payoneer has some pricing and fee structure, even recently Payoneer started to charge monthly fee $3 as well as $29.95 annually fee too. Which is not good for beginners who initially started their business.

How Payoneer Can Be Cheaper:

So what we are bringing out the conclusion here, this is quick and straightforward guide about how Payoneer can be cheaper than manually signed up. We noticed that Payoneer has two kinds of pricing & fee table one for usual clients like you and me and secondly for who partnered with Payoneer such as Infolinks, UpWork, Elance etc.

If you go to sign up directly to Payoneer that would be considered as manually signed up client. Unlike if you go to Infolinks Ads and from their website you request Payoneer then from the reference of Infolinks you will be automatically redirected on Payoneer website so this means Payoneer Premium partner Infolinks or whatever sending their clients on their behalf to Payoneer so you will be treated as a special customer.

Furthermore, your pricing fee structure will be much less than manually signed up clients even your Payoneer application approval chances is 99.9% than manually signed up users. Because almost manually signed up applicants application is rejected and that is what we already experienced.

Let me show you the screenshots of both Payoneer pricing and fee to make your doubts clear.

How Payoneer MasterCard Can Be Cheaper Image 1

Above shows that outside the US Payoneer maintenance charges is $6.95 except few mentioned countries in the above image. Secondly, Card replacement charges is $9.95 in case if your card is stolen or lost accidentally so you can request your new Payoneer from your account with this little fee. Third one is ATM withdrawal fee is $2.15 per transaction as well as $0.90 of per declined transaction. If you increase your monthly card transactions 4+ then monthly card fee will be go down from $3 to $1 that is also the better way to reduce your Payoneer expense.

Now let’s see the usually signed up user Payoneer pricing & fee and compare itself.

How Payoneer MasterCard Can Be Cheaper Image 2

Above image shows that Card replacement fee is $12.95 ($3 difference from Infolinks Payoneer). ATM withdrawal $3.15 per successful transaction ($1 difference from Infolinks Payoneer) and in case of declined $1 ($0.10 difference from Infolinks Payoneer).

Now all results are transparent, keep remember that I’m not saying that Payoneer creating difference among their clients. Infolinks or similar like companies did the lot of investment with Payoneer and signed contract that is why Payoneer giving them importance first. Now I did my best to convey my experience to you so now it’s your turn to do your best.

WHMCS Security Steps After Complete Installation

WHMCS security is a most essential step after complete their installation successfully. Almost beginners even some experts, doesn’t put their attention on this aspect but that is necessary if you want to sustain your website worth among your users. In another condition if you don’t give priority to WHMCS security steps so there is no doubt that your hosting account associated with WHMCS can be hacked. Make your strong password is not enough anymore, until your hosting files are fully secured.

WHMCS Security Steps After Complete Installation

WHMCS Security Steps After Installation:

After installation your journey will begin with WHMCS and this journey should satisfactory in future not insecure. Here I had personally experienced few things, even WHMCS itself recommended these security steps so feel free to implement these WHMCS security steps on your side. Check it out the below security steps.

Delete the Install Folder:

One of the most crucial note for all folks who installed their WHMCS. After done your WHMCS installation successfully, must delete the Install folder, which exist on your WHMCS root folder. It contains sensitive information which can be the cause of hacking so after done your installation that is totally freak for you and your hosting account. Simply delete this folder, Install folder deletion will not create any problem on your WHMCS but is necessary to perform this action.

home/username/whmcs/install

Move OR Secure the Writable Directories:

At this time WHMCS have three writable directories, which are web-based address and accessible for public. That is why WHMCS recommended that to move these three directories (attachments, downloads and templates_c) under the home directory or non public location which are not accessible for public.

Another important note when you move these directories under the home directory so now you are responsible to give new path to WHMCS to use these directories for future by using or adding below lines in your configuration.php file in your WHMCS root directory.

$attachments_dir = "/home/username/attachments/";
$downloads_dir = "/home/username/downloads/";
$templates_compiledir = "/home/username/templates_c/";

You can use professional code editors to edit your server files.

Make Secure Configuration.php File:

As we know that configuration.php file have sensitive and personal info within in your root directory. You must change their permission to 400 just for read only, because it can be overwrite, edit or delete without any deliberately (unintentionally) action.

Enable IP Restriction:

Extreme security level, when you feel that your WHMCS is affected by hacking again and again. So you can allow particular IP address to your WHMCS  login page or deny all other IPs to see that page. Just simply make it forbidden for all other IP addresses. You can do this by creating a .htaccess file inside your whmcs/admin folder and then add the below lines.

order deny,allow
allow from 12.34.5.67 //Replace your IP address with this IP Address
deny from all

For example, you can just allow your IP address and deny all other computers IPs by using above lines. If you don’t know your IP address then simply ask to Google “MY IP ADDRESS” then Google will tell you in return.

Customize the WHMCS Admin Directory:

Edit the admin directory name makes harder for hackers and malicious bots to get access to your WHMCS login page. So we personally recommend this step to our all readers. Simply just you need to add a single line in your configuration.php file, which are stated below.

$customadminpath = "customfoldername";

Replace customfoldername to your admin folder name which you chosen on your side. Add the above line before closing php tag ?> if this one exist.

If the above line already exist so replace only the customfoldername with your admin folder name and save changes. After done this rename your admin directory which custom name you specified in your configuration.php file then it will work correctly.

Where are they based?

What are their hobbies?

What blogs do they read?

What is their disposable income?

These are just a few questions that may help build up a picture of your target market. The answers to these questions can tell you a lot about the people you are trying to reach. A simple way to learn more about your current customers is to set up an online survey. This can be promoted through your social media channels, blogs, and email marketing. Offer an incentive for customers to complete the survey.

Ensure that all campaigns are tailored carefully to your target market.

 

Quick Wins:

It takes a while to build up a natural or organic online presence. In the meantime, there are several things you can do for some quick wins.

For example, you could set up a Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign. Or, if you’re marketing an app, you could carry out some mobile application marketing. Ads can be set up quickly and are targeted to your audience. Many businesses offer a CPA (Cost Per Action) service so you will only be paying when someone completes an action. E.g. a click or form submit.

Social Media:

Make the most of social media and use it to your advantage. Going back to your target audience, find out which channels they use the most. Though most social media platforms are free of charge, they still require a lot of resources. So make sure you’re channeling resources in an effective way. And don’t just target the usual suspects like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Consider other channels such as Instagram and Snapchat.

When creating and sharing content, be fun and engaging. Don’t just fire off promotional messages. Take time to get to know your audience. Answer their questions and enter into conversations. Get creative with hashtags.

When beginning any marketing campaign, always start with your purpose and audience. What is it you want to achieve? Who are you aiming at? Throughout the process return to these two questions. Use marketing channels that are relevant to your audience. Find out as much about them as possible. Use your resources effectively and prioritize. These principles are relevant for traditional marketing and new digital trends.
