Tips for Mastering Hashtags-
Any competent Social Media Manager should know about Hashtags — but you can always learn more! Here are 5 tips.

“A popular technique we like to use, particularly for small businesses, is to look for geo-dependent hashtags. This would be hashtags people are using for a particular city, area, or region. We are in the Jacksonville, Florida area, so a common one we use is #ilovejax, so that our posts show up in the main hashtag feed for the city.” – Jessica Medina, writing for EZY Marketing

Best of the Best PayPal Plugins for WordPress-
Yes, not only is there one PayPal plugin for WP, there are several to help accept donations, sell products, or add a shopping cart experience to your client’s web site. Our friend Meghan Monaghan did a really great job of reviewing 17 (17? 🤔 who knew? ) such plugins!

“Online consumers recognize the PayPal logo and associate it with safe, secure, and reliable payment processing. That’s a bonus for you since you don’t want anything standing in the way of converting a  website visitor into a customer.” – Meghan Monaghan, writing for WP BeaverBuilder
