Samsung Pay, a forthcoming mobile payments feature for Samsung mobile devices, has a unique advantage that BI Intelligence thinks will help drive US mobile payments volume to over $800 billion by the end of 2019.
One of the biggest obstacles to mobile payments adoption in the US is that only a handful of retailers have the technology to accept mobile payments in stores. However, in early 2015 Samsung acquired a company called LoopPay which could potentially solve this problem.
LoopPay developed a technology called Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) which will be integrated into new Samsung phones. The technology will allow mobile users to pass their phones over a typical credit card reader to make a payment. In addition, Samsung Pay users will also be able to pay by presenting a barcode to be scanned at checkout. That means that Samsung Pay will work at most existing payment terminals in the US — So someone who adopts Samsung Pay can begin to use it habitually right away.
In a recent report from BI Intelligence, we take a close look at Samsung Pay, Android Pay, and Apple Pay, explaining the advantage of each and what the companies behind these features stand to gain by offering them.
Competitors Apple Pay and Android Pay require merchants to have near field communication (NFC) terminals. And while merchants are adopting these terminals rather rapidly, they're far from ubiquitous.
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!
