By the end of this year, you'll have a new way to pay for that Venti iced skinny hazelnut macchiato with sugar-free syrup at Starbucks.
The coffee giant has announced that it will begin accepting Chase Pay, the mobile wallet from JPMorgan Chase, in its stores and, most likely, through the Starbucks app. The company plans to accept Chase Pay at more than 7,500 stores in the U.S. by the end of 2016.
Starbucks and JPMorgan Chase already have a healthy relationship, as the former announced in October that the financial giant would replace Square as the processor for all of Starbucks' in-store card payments not made on mobile devices.
JPMorgan Chase will also now process all mobile payments made with Chase Pay in the Chase Pay app (scheduled for release later this year) or as an inter grated feature inside the Starbucks app.
That’s how much monthly website traffic we had to our website three months ago.
20 visitors a day may sound encouraging if you’re starting a personal project, but when your goal is to build a successful business with a team counting on you…
Well, you’re probably screwed.
And if we continued at that pace, we would’ve been. So what did we do?
After a few minutes of panic, we got down to reality, and started experimenting with any possible source of traffic to our website. A lot of it failed (in fact, most did).
But some of them worked.
A few worked well enough to get us from 554 visitors/mo to 25,500+ visitors/mo (5,000 percent+ increase) in just three months.
And this is what we’re here to share with you today.
5. Phrase Builder
Phrase Builder may look a bit ugly, but it is truly indispensable when you need a plenty of related keyword ideas and don’t have time to think them up ‘manually’. You simply define certain input criteria, and the tool will generate the list of keywords and phrases.
UberSuggest is one of the most popular tools used by PPC marketers, and for a good reason. In many respects, it is similar to other suggestion tools, but there are a few differences, such as foreign language support and a lot of small details that add up to better and more flexible functionality.
7. Five Second Test
It is often said that what a user sees within five seconds after visiting your site defines whether he is going to stay or leave. Five Second Test allows you to check how much your website is attuned to this idea: it shows you what the visitor sees, what he is likely to miss and what he is likely to remember.
Using these tools won’t turn you into a pro in a blink of an eye, but it will certainly increase your effectiveness as an online marketer – and quickly!
