Edgar

When I used Edgar back in 2016, it was the only social media scheduler of its kind. Not only can you schedule your social media updates, but it puts your social media updates on autopilot. You see, Edgar stores your content in categories. You can create a schedule of your categories. Edgar chooses content from your content library to share from the appropriate category (So you upload content one time and Edgar uses it over + over again). In other words, it recycles your content so that it doesn’t just post once + then it never sees the light of day again. You can also schedule updates for one-time use so you do not have to recycle content if you do not want to.

Because it is a social media management tool like no other, there is a learning curve. It takes some time to get used to using Edgar to its fullest potential (but what potential it is!). Signing up for the newsletter helps shorten the curve, however, because it includes tips, tricks + shortcuts for using Edgar.

The other part is that Edgar comes with a pretty hefty price tag at $49/month. has a cost associated with it. The good news is that Edgar does a lot more than other social media schedulers, so you’re getting a much bigger bang for your buck, no matter how you look at it.

Recurpost

I am in L-O-V-E with Recurpost. It is a social media management tool that works exactly like Edgar works but the price tag is a LOT less expensive. Not only can you schedule your social media updates, but it puts your social media updates on autopilot.

Recurpost stores your content in categories. You can create a schedule of your categories. Recurpost chooses content from your content library to share from the appropriate category (So you upload content one time and Recurpost uses it over + over again). You can also schedule updates for one-time use. 

While Edgar only offers one pricing plan, Recurpost offers four + one of the plans is FREE.

Tailwind

Tailwind is a scheduler for your Pinterest pins. In fact, it is the ONLY scheduler for Pinterest. Pinterest + Tailwind are good buddies. I use Tailwind + I LOVE it. If you use my link, you get your first month of Tailwind for FREE. As a wedding pro, if you’re not using Pinterest, start using it now. Brides + grooms are all over Pinterest + Pinterest is the second largest search engine (second only to Google).

Buffer

best social media scheduler Buffer is a social media scheduling tool. You can add your social media accounts, create an update one time, and send it out into the social media universe. The main difference between Buffer and Hootsuite is that Buffer does not allow you to monitor other people’s updates from your social media accounts (Hootsuite does). (HINT: If you’re solely looking for a tool to push updates out, then I like Buffer better. If you’re looking for something to schedule updates and monitor your social media accounts simultaneously, then Hootsuite is the better option.) Try Buffer FREE for 14 days.

Determining which social media scheduler is the best option for your business requires you to take a long hard look at the features and the pricing for the scheduler. Consider things like how many social media accounts you need for the scheduler to include, whether it offers one-time posts or recycles content for you, and which social media accounts it updates.

Siteground Web Hosting Review

For the past 15 years, Siteground has been hosting websites for business owners like you + like me. They host over 2 million domains. How long they’ve been in business + how many domains they host says a lot but Siteground also has a high customer satisfaction rating of 99.7% (There’s always that .3% of an unhappy customer, right?).

These figures alone shout that Siteground is one of the big players in web hosting but how good is their hosting service?

I personally use Siteground for hosting all four of my websites. So I can speak to my own experience using Siteground for the last four years. Similar to many web hosting services, Siteground offers different plans + services.

I’m going to give you an in-depth look into everything Siteground has to offer so you can decide if it is the best web hosting for wedding planners.

Best Web Hosting Plans

Siteground offers three different plans for web hosting. You have the option to pay month-to-month or save pretty drastically by paying for the multiple years upfront. As you can see, Siteground offers plans that meet you where your business is.

I have the Grow Big account because I have four websites. If you only have one website then the Startup plan might be all you need. The special price is the price you pay for longer term contracts. The price below that is the monthly regular pricing.

Essential Features

When you are trying to decide which is the best web hosting service for your wedding business, there are definitely essential features that you want to look for + then there are some nice-to-have features.

These are the essentials that Siteground offers for web hosting.

Fast website performance

I took an SEO course earlier this year + the host of the course had us test our website speed. You want to have a super-fast website speed because if your prospective clients + clients have to wait + wait + then wait some more for your website to load then you are likely to lose their attention. Siteground offers “ultra-fast” website speed.

All of my websites that I host on Siteground load in less than 2 seconds.

Security

You’ve probably heard the horror stories of other planners having their websites hacked, losing everything + having to start from scratch. Siteground removes the fear from my mind + heart because they take security measures at the server level + the application level. Siteground also offers SSL (for free) to protect your + your clients’ data + creates a daily backup of your site.

Phew…That’s a lot of safety + security.

WordPress

All of the Siteground plans include WordPress installation. The plans also update your WordPress automatically + provide you support in case you have any problems with WordPress. You can also use other Content Management Systems such as Joomla, Magento + more.

Uptime

Uptime is how much of the time your website works — or is up + running. Having a website is useless if when your clients + prospective clients go to the site it’s not working. In the last year + a half, the uptime rate for Siteground is 99.99%. So 99.99% of the time, the sites hosted on Siteground have been up, running + accessible to the brides + grooms trying to access them almost 100% of the time.

In fact, Siteground offers a guarantee for at least 99.99% uptime. If uptime ever dips below this level then they offer customers free months of hosting.

Customer Service

Ideally, the best web host is the one that you never have to contact because you’re having a problem. Ideally, you want to never have any problems so you never have to contact them.

Realistically, the best web host is the one that has superior customer service + is there when you need them. I have had to contact Siteground MAYBE 3-4 times since I started using them as a host four years ago. The employees are nice, knowledgeable + helpful.

Someone at Siteground is available 24/7 in a variety of ways. They have chat, phone + email assistance so depending on your contact preference + need level, you can reach someone any time of the day or night.

Money-Back Guarantee

While other web host services offer 15-day money back guarantees, Siteground stands out as the best web host with a 30-day money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with the host in those 30 days, you get your money back.

I have used other web site hosts in the past (GoDaddy for many, many years + then Bluehost). Both relationships ended with messy breakups.

After experiencing customer service issues + functionality issues with both hosts, I switched to Siteground + never looked back. If you’re looking to switch hosts or are starting up your website, you want the best web hosting service so I suggest you at least check out what Siteground offers.
