Evernote Tips And Tricks: The Best Way To Manage Your Client’s Login

There’s a lot of password management tools available throughout the cloud but neither of them quench my thirst until I come up with this 101 Evernote tips and tricks that dramatically improve my productivity rate.

If you are wondering why I shouldn’t be using Lastpass or Sticky Password? Actually, I tried but…. I cannot afford the glitches and it’s eating my precious time so instead of dealing those stuff; I created my own password storage that works both in offline and online – even in Incognito browser..

So let’s begin how this Evernote trick solved the hustle…

Step 1 – Evernote Tricks 101: Grouping the Notebooks

Sign up at Evernote and create a group for your client’s information. This help you to locate login details easily.

First, create a stack to merge the notebooks( Independence Title create a very brief tutorial how to create a stack in Evernote). I have the Evernote notebook called default contacts where I put all the clients that focuses only on their business which means their login details are exclusively all about their company.

Step 2 – Evernote Tips 101: Create A Note(s) Inside The notebook And List The Login Details from A to Z.

Add-on Evernote tips: Consider creating notebook if your client has a lot of customers that you are dealing with.

See how I did it on Johnny’s info.
Basically, he had 5 clients so I prefer to seperate him on my “default contacts” notebook so I can pile his customer’s details properly

Create a notebook
Create a notes by clicking the paper icon for your client’s login details. For clients similar to Johnny, you need to create individual notes for every client.

E.g Johnny has a clients named Melissa, Jennifer and Abby so the formula will be 3 notes:

M – melissa perace
A – abby meyer
J – jennifer johnson

PS: this is just a dummy names. 

How the notes look like? 
Listing your login details from a to z is searchable so rather than categorizing them, why don’t you try the traditional a-z way?

Mostly, we really look for a domain name if we tend to forget the password so I don’t think social media tools, WordPress site or whatever categories are they is a smart strategy – it just making your password storage worst and crumble…

Why I choose Evernote instead of others?
What I really like about Evernote is.. it’s very user-friendly and you can even download the app on your smart phone. Even though, it’s a cloud based tools; the autosync function allows you to add and edit some notes when you’re offline.

How To Stay In Thailand Over 30 Days Without Doing A Visa Run

Thailand is the most pron visa run country for digital nomads and as a first timer, this is quite scary.

So way back 2016, I decided to  travel in Thailand to study a microblading. It’s actually tough decision because it was my first time to stay away from my comfort zone yet an exciting moment.

Tips To Pass The Philippines Immigration

Travelling from Philippines to Thailand doesn’t require a visa up to 30 days but since there’s a lot of Filipinos work illegally, the “offload” word brought to our attention.

Don’t carry too much luggage –  Based on my perception, carrying over-sized luggage as a tourist doesn’t make sense at all. You’re just hinting the immigration that there’s something smelly on your travel. In fact, we haven’t bring anything but our laptops and backpacks with a total of 3kls.

But heck! Don’t follow us..

That’s the worst decision we have ever made! I could absolutely save 20,000 baht If I can fetch my actions

Remember this tweetable hoax: There’s no less than $3 quality cloth in Thailand, you can find cheap one but 80% of them are too much for your style. Divisoria is still the best!

Anyway,  you can get as much as 7kls to 15kls luggage..

filipino travel thailand no visa up to 32 days

Be Confident if they ask –  Just be confident, do not give anything unless they ask. I noticed some Filipinos are too defensive.

Scenario like – a lady immediately provide all her documents like TOR, Birth Certificate, Bank Statement and start her story telling like she had an aunt in Thailand…. She’ll be staying their for good as tourist….blah blah…

Psychologically speaking, if I am the immigration officer, I will also feel overwhelm.

So tip of advice: Do not speak until they ask you do so.

Most of the questions they will usually ask when travelling as a tourist in Bangkok

How long you will stay in Thailand – Be concrete, do not throw unsure words like “Maybe 15 days”. Just say “15 days”. If they ask you a returning ticket; just say you haven’t book yet.

If they ask a follow-up question, you can say “my schedule will be flexible because I want to visit a lot of tourist spot destinations in Thailand but I’ll definitely return before my visa runs out.”

If you’re not comfortable, you can buy a returning ticket.

For hotel accommodation alternative, you can find cheap rooms in Bangkok here. Make sure you’ve tick the lowest price.

Keep in mind, the key is just BE CONFIDENT.

Where will you stay?

Just write down the complete address and contact number.

But honestly, it rarely happens.

They might ask douments like:

  • Bank Statement
  • Returning Flight

Please, don’t give them a TOR or any school documents. That’s a huge red flag. You will travel as a tourist not other way around. If your purpose is “to work”, just be assertive.. Hide your papers and pretend you are a tourist. Do not give them a hint that you will do a visa run.

If you follow these step above, they will not bother to ask anything but just your passport unless you will look suspicious…. so just chill.

FYI: * This all works in all countries.

Fashion kills you – don’t be too fancy nor dull. Just mediocre.

Plus points: Having a lot stamps on your passport is a big plus.

When You Should Need To Do A Visa Run

So we arrived in Thailand and the microblading journey begins… until we figured out that the return ticket is not total of 30 days but 31 days. Worst thing, you only have 29 days to stay in Thailand because the “date on arrival” is counted, that’s equivalent to 2 days overstay.

At first, we planned to travel in Cambodia to get a 15 days extension but shits happened and I am so exhausted both to my work (I’ll be posting how to work online soon!) and school (I’ll posting microblading 101 soon) so we leave it as is and expect the unexpected.

Despite we went to the Thailand immigration located at the first floor of the Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and asked for assistance on how we can fixed the problem without messing up our passports. The immigration officer was so friendly and told us that all nearby Asian passport holders have a 3 days grace period so luckily we saved 1,900 baht penalty/person.

Note: If you’re staying more than 32 days, you can either do a visa run before the expiration at the nearby countries like Cambodia or Laos.

How To Setup WordPress Offline Site Less Than A Minute | WP 101

Installing a WordPress on your desktop and computer is quite tricky than using One-click installation feature offered by most of the hosting company.

However, if you want to master WordPress, you might need to consider familiarizing the offline setup.

At first, I felt it’s really hard and it required programming knowledge but these 3 tricks can save three forth of your time. 🙂

Step 1 – Install and Configure The Xampp Console

  1. Install a xampp on  your desktop or laptop.
  2. After installation, you will see a console that’s compose of 5 modules.
  3. Run the Apache and MySQL module by clicking the start button.

Setup WordPress Offline Site

Beside Mysql row, click the admin button to create a database or you can simply go to localhost/phpmyadmin/ to access the phpmyadmin console.

  1. To add a database, click the New
  2. Name your database (right now I used wp, you can rename it whatever you want).
  3. Click the check all
  4. Hit the create button

phpmyadmin - localhost

Step 2: Placing The WordPress Files On The Right Directory

Download the WordPress file and unzip it inside the htdocs folder. Usually, it is located at C:/Program Files/XAMPP/htdocs.

So basically, it look like  C:/Program Files/XAMPP/htdocs/wordpress/

Note: you can rename the wordpress folder, just keep in mind that this will serve as the extension of your local link. Since we use wordpress, our front-end link will be localhost/wordpress

You can see the WordPress is already live but in order to make it work, you need to connect the database that we have created in step 1.

Step 3: Connecting the Database

In the process of installation, simply select a language and follow the instruction until you reach the database Q&A field. For other option, you can also edit the wp-config but for those new for coding, let’s just stick to front-end configuration. 🙂

Here’s the format

  • Database Name: WP (this is the name we have used in the database
  • Username: Root (we’re using root since we’re installing the wordpress locally)

Blogging Mistakes – 4 Practices That You Should Not Do When Starting A Blog

You’d tried to create a blog but it seems don’t make any sense at all……

You put a lot of extra effort but still not engaging enough compared to other native speakers..

If you feel intimate because English is not your first language, don’t worry; you’re not alone. In spite of hypothesizing your brain that blogging is not your thing, Check the blogging mistakes that I have break down for you.

4 Common Blogging Mistakes I Realized When Starting A Blog

1. Always depending on a keyword – searching a good keyword in Google Keyword Planner is no doubt an incredible strategy to drive traffic but this also ruins your article.

Tweet This: Pushing too much target keyword on your content won’t be helpful else it can increase your bounce rate

What is bounce rate?  It is the percentage of visitors who visit then navigate away from the site after viewing only one page.

Solution: You can use LSI keywords as an alternative of your target keywords, that will improve your SEO score.

Let’s say, your target keyword is blogging mistakes, it doesn’t sound good if you always repeat this word, you may use other alternatives like “starting a blog”, how to blog, common mistakes in blogging and such.

2. Not Thinking A Good Headline – This is related to keyword stuffing again, most of the freshmen blogger really focus on keywords which result to uninviting to read.  A Good title should consist a Problem + Solution or A Fact.

3. Not Structuring/Planning  A good plan can bring big impact to your content. If you think quantity can help you drive traffic. Guess what? Quality always win! If you’re a freshmen blogger, stealing a content from other sources is not a good idea. Take note, Google always loves unique content so if all of your blog posts are full of trash copy/paste content, your site won’t be valuable just like others do.

4. Too Robotic – This happen usually to a tutorial blogs, being too monotonous will push your readers to leave. If this works on your other blog, lucky you! because there’s a lot of competition and for sure, they will win the battle. Humor always matter; the only way to fight back is to stress the emotion – let the readers feel how eager you write this topic.  Why? Of course, because it’s informative and you’re excited to share it!

Neither I am not a good writer but every now and then, I strive hard to be at least a better one. What’s your blogging story? Feel free to comment below.
