Entropay virtual credit card | A user guide

ENTROPAY is a virtual credit card service available for online payments. It has a user of more than 2 million and is running for more than 13 years as an online virtual card for payments.

It has the latest technology and security mechanism which provides you with the best security for your personal information. As we all are worried about the security of our personal information when we use an online transaction for purchasing goods. It is accepted where visa cards are accepted anywhere around the world and in any country. 

I am sure there are countries where your cards are not meant for international transactions for online payments. entropy is free virtual credit for online payments which is, of course, a free service but it will cost you a small fraction of your money for the transactions you make through entropay. The card can be created when you need them and can be deleted when you don’t need them.

UPDATE

ENTROPAY will no longer work in different parts of the world including Norway from 31st October 2018. It will become exclusive to the European Union or Europe. I think it is because of laws and restrictions. The money you have as your balance can still be used. 

I won’t say it’s a con but for your information, it can protect your personal information +99% from a fraudster. It is still a small chance of less than 1% for a fraudster to acquire enough information to make a transaction on your behalf without you knowing about it. I just added this just for information purposes only. By the end of the day, it is still as secure as a bank.

I have added some pricing of using Entropay service details in the picture about using entropy as an online payment mode for purchasing goods online. I think it better to use entropy service for online transactions for international payments and not have to be worried about the security of your personal information is a compromise.

I highly recommend using the service for keeping your personal information safe when you make an online international transaction for payments of goods

HOW TO USE ENTROPAY WALLET

FIRST, Go to your browser and search for Entropay

SECOND, Sign up using your e-mail account from which you will receive your confirmation mail for an account in entropay. I  will leave the part where information is to be added. Which I’m sure you all are familiar adding you details

THIRD, Once you have access to entropay look for CREATE CARD on your left side of your Entropay account

FOURTH, Enter the name for your card could be your real full or short name of your choice

FIFTH, Scroll down you will find a top-up button and click on it for a top-up of your card.

SIXTH, Just choose the default option given by entropy or a top-up method using CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD and add top-up to your card option will be sure to select card.

LASTLY, Enter your card details and information to top-up your Entropay card for making an international transaction or online transaction where VISA cards are accepted. The Entropay card will work anywhere VISA cards are accepted.

Email Marketing for Beginners

Email marketing for Beginners as per my understanding of the subject matter will be giving you a guide or tutorial according to my knowledge. You can be based as an individual or organization that delivers content to their inbox which in this case it is directly sent to them through their email account.

The stuff which is delivered to your customer or potential can be a commercial message or your blog posts. Which can only be possible when an individual or group of people gave you their consent to receive content from you or your organization.

I will be using social networks as an example it doesn’t mean it is right or correct. I am using them because its something everyone is familiar with and I think it would be a great example to use them. It seems to be a good material you can use to understand the concept or idea of it.

There is a lot to choose or pick from but I will be using only two of them. The two social networks are :

a) YouTube

b) Facebook

YOUTUBE

I would say the most popular streaming site for videos. You can find videos for every possible topic or subject. They are all run by people like you and me. The best part about it is you can earn money from it.

Here, I would take you to the point. Let’s take there is a YouTube channel where it has subscribers. It will get views but the view it gains might be slow because the subscribers might not get a notification.

After subscribing to a YouTube channel. The owner or the people who run the channel might suggest you click the bell icon that makes the people who subscribe to the channel get a notification which means a new video is uploaded by the channel owners.

It is the most populous social network in the world. It is highly possible you have an account or you had an account. There are lots of pages which specialized in different topics as you can update post in different formats.

It is adding a feature to monetize your videos like on YouTube. You might or not experience but I definitely have seen and experienced it first hand

You like or follow a page on Facebook according to your interests. The people who run it upload contents in formats such as image, videos, and link to a site or page. On the page, just below the header of the page you will see or find some settings options.

Among them, there is a notification option, you choose and click on it. You will have multiple options and from among them click on all post to get notified when a new post is uploaded

EMAIL MARKETING TOOLS FOR FREE

The best e-mail marketing services tools for your opt-in button to get people to subscribe to your e-mail list through who have viewed your site or blog. There are different types of formats and designs. Which they have made them have distinct looks or features so it can stand out from their competitor

The tools I will be talking about are Hello bar, Mail Chimp, Onesignal, Push Engage and Subscribers are free e-mail list providers your blog posts. They both have a free version and paid or pro version. As you can figure it out from the two formats it supports.

This means there will be better set up for the user or consumer for the paid ones. This goes without saying  that things you can buy in life which  are most expensive tend to be better products

The free versions are going to be limited. Everything it supports is going to be lacking but it is a good option to use when your just getting started or introduced to the product and its services.

You cannot remove the footer credits in HelloBar and Mailchimp

These are the maximum number it supports for e-mail blast or pushes notification service for free or starter pack for your e-mail listing which is different for all of them and so does the pro or paid version of each of them too

Hello Bar supports up to 5,000 users or e-mail which is the largest among them

Mail chimp will allow up to 2,000 users or e-mail with the limitation of 12,000 emails per month and

OneSignal can send push notifications up to 30,000 users for the free plan

Push Engage can have up to 2,500 subscribers, 120 notifications per month and 5,000 click lifetime

Subscribers with the least amount of up to 200 users. It is a push notification service. It let your readers know you publish a new blog or article through their browsers

I have been talking about them together because it works in the same or similar fields even though the services might be different according to the provider there is something we all need to know if we are doing Email marketing big or small which was implemented on May 25, 2018.

GDPR FOR EMAIL MARKETING

GDPR means the General Data Protection Regulation. It can be any form of Digital Marketing.  Which you use someone’s personal information to sell or advertise or affiliate to be your possible customer or to your paying customer.

It is for people who are citizens of the European Union or Economic Area. Their data or privacy should be protected at all costs if not you could be fined 20 million euro or 4 percent of annual global turnover which is a ridiculous amount of money.

It is implemented in Europe and California in the U.S.A

I think it will become a reality in other continents or countries in the future. The majority of most of the countries in the world are going Digital. Which will make people vulnerable for their personal information to be used illegally which can use in many ways or form.

The user or subscriber will have the freedom to subscribe or unsubscribe to your email is the most important and have the option to do that in the email you sent to them

There were cases such as selling emails to Corporate for money or profit and it was possible.

With a law like GDPR will be able to stop such an act will make a person think twice before doing such things. As we go Digital from countries around the world.

For now, this is all I can about to say about Email marketing. It is not constant as there will be changes and update in the future. The best thing we can do is stay updated on what is happening in the Digital World.

The best thing about the services I have mentioned is that you don’t have to worry about being compliant with the law instead they make their service compliant for the law for you and me to use

How to write SEO friendly blog posts

I am sharing what I have learned about how to write SEO friendly blog posts. I am still lacking and not the best out there but I would like to share what I have learned so far on my blogging journey.

Create an article or post which will answer or solve the problem of your readers

I have learned from different famous blogger and how I incorporate it into my blogging. I am just elaborating in a way how I understand and use it on my blog post

The blog post/article needs to answer the query (keyword) and format the article in a way that will help the user which will be different for every keyword (Question or Query)

TIPS FOR WRITING SEO ARTICLES

How many words require to write SEO (Search Engine Optimization) optimize your blog post. It depends on your query (keyword) and the competitiveness

The basics of adding your keyword in title, URL and Meta description still applies

It is just too little for a blog post. You can elaborate with using stories even if it is about FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) try to cover every little step and elaborate in the best you can

Search for the keyword (query or question) you are targeting and go through the first page or top 10 SERP (Search Engine Result Page) posts. Your job will be to make a better post or version shown in the SERP results

You probably will hear or read about this numerous times make it’s worded in terms of thousands like at least 2000 words but I have seen those blog post who is on the first page of google search have 5000 words plus and goes up to 10,000 plus words on their blog post to get that position in SERP (Search Engine Results Page) on the first page of google search

If you write about a very detailed post on a very competitive keyword (query) considered it standard because you need to beat your competitors

Do not add your keywords too many times in a single blog post then it becomes keyword stuffing.

The only place where you need them are in the title tag and once on your meta description within the first 100-150 words which is probably the basics of SEO

Google uses A. I to understand what is the intend of the searcher and try to display the best result in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page)

There is something you can do is write an in-depth or definitive guide about your query (keyword)

If you explain with proper research or data that is still considered a good quality post. In the end it might end up long or short doesn’t matter but make sure your content deliver on the search query (keyword)

It is intimidating, well consider it as apart of blogging. It won’t be easy when you started out as a blogger.

Just consider it as a journey every blogger has to go through when they started blogging.

We all know that the competition is really tough now to get on the first page of Google but doesn’t mean that it is impossible.

You probably might or might not notice it. Do make sure you write your blog post in a small paragraph so that it won’t look intimidating for your blog post readers to able to read and skim

The recommended paragraph length is 1 line for the shortest, 6 lines for the longest and everything in between

How to write a blog post for Beginners

For this blog post, it will be how to write a blog for beginners and what it takes to make a blog. I haven’t master nor perfect it when I write a blog post but I’ll show you whatever I have learned about my blog post template

What I have learned from my blogging journey so far. I hope it can be informative and useful.

I did the best I can to elaborate in a way it can be understood by someone who’s just getting started

INTRODUCTION

I have written a small paragraph about the blog post I am going to write about ‘how to write a blog post for beginners’. which consists of a few lines. Where you can see the keyword for this blog post and a little intro in the paragraph what I am about going to write/talk about is the Meta description

Add a bit about your experience or what you think in that paragraph

The recommended length is above 70 words to 320 words is ideal for the first paragraph or introduction.

THE BODY

For this part, your going have to write everything you can about your query (keyword)

Explain it in a very detailed guide or step by step without missing or skipping every information on it

Let’s take an example by those who do a review about certain products on their site

If you have witnessed a review about gadgets like iPhone, Samsung phone, Google Pixel phones, etc on a website and other clothing reviews like Adidas, Puma, Nike, etc. to name a few products.

They will write a blog with everything about the product even the smallest things or details about the product which help their site optimized for SEO (Search engine Optimization).

There more in-depth you are when you write a blog post it is better for your site to rank better in SERP (Search Engine Results Page)

Anyone who searches for a product/information wants the most complete information possible if you can do it then it good for your site SEO

CONCLUSION

This part will only be used by websites which do reviews, experiments, case studies but no going to necessary for response post like how to’s or guide on something

It doesn’t mean it’s bad but put it in a way people can decide according to its pro’s and con’s so, that they can decide to buy or not according to their requirements

 which is to share your knowledge in a way that every reader of your blog post finds their answer or solve their problems/confusions

I hope you find something you can take away from this blog post and it’s applicable for affiliate Marketing for a product post

As someone who blogs here my little experience for my writing format in English

Make sure to write your paragraph which ranges from 1 to 6 lines and anything in between will also work. I think you might have noticed in this post as well

Use simple or laymen terms to make it simple for the readers to understand and sentence/words which will be used by the searcher in search engines
