MeetEdgar Social Media Scheduling Tool: Overview and Review
Every business, big or small, needs a social media presence. That’s why a social media scheduler is so important. But when it comes to choosing the right one, it’s all about what the tool can do for you and if it fits your needs. You might have seen MeetEdgar while doing research for the right tool. In this post, we bring you an overview and review of MeetEdgar, the social media scheduling tool. After looking at what MeetEdgar can do, we’ll take a look at who this tool is best for.
What MeetEdgar is Known For
Every social media scheduler has a feature to make them stand out from the rest. Agorapulse has good social listening capabilities, Hootsuite has a vertical column layout and Tailwind, detailed Pinterest, and Instagram tools. MeetEdgar is no different.
The stand-out MeetEdgar feature is the recurred posting queues for evergreen content. These queues post on selected channels on a loop. If there is no more content added to that queue, it will start back from the beginning until new content is added.
This is one of the features that MeetEdgar is known for. The second is the suggested copy variations. When you add a link to the content window, MeetEdgar offers variations. The tool pulls content from the blog post or article URL. Then, you can customize or personalize each variation as you please.
These two important features help businesses stay active on...

How to Create a Slide Down Push Menu in Divi
Large headers with a lot of navigation links can take up a lot of valuable real estate on your site (especially above the fold). That’s why menus that popup and slide-in are becoming more and more popular. Most of the time, menus that slide in to view stay above the content of the page, hiding certain elements. However, a sliding push menu works a little differently. The sliding push effect is unique in that the menu slides in from the top of the page while simultaneously pushing the page content down so nothing is hidden from view.
In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to build a sliding push menu from scratch using the Divi Theme Builder. Once the menu is built, it becomes a versatile tool for all types of applications since you will be able to fill the section with any content you want using the Divi Builder.
Let’s get to it!
Sneak Peek
Here is a quick look at the sliding push menu we’ll build in this tutorial.

Sonic Branding: What is Is and How Your Brand Can Benefit
Does your brand have a signature sound? Has your brand developed an original sound effect, song, or jingle that your customers are meant to associate with your product or service? If so, you’ve engaged in sonic branding.
Sonic branding isn’t quite as well-known as the concept of visual branding, but for many companies and small businesses, it’s just as important. Let’s take a look at what sonic branding is, how it enhances the brand experience, and whether your business should consider branding with sound.
What is Sonic Branding?
Sonic branding refers to the sounds or songs associated with a brand, product, or service. The association isn’t created organically by fans, followers, or consumers. Instead, it’s developed or adopted by the brand as part of an intentional strategy that helps its audience associate those sounds with the brand.
In short, sonic branding is the sound of your brand. It’s the default ringtone on the Apple iPhone. The McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” ditty. It’s the “Intel Inside” jingle or the XBox 360 startup sound. It’s why (if you’re a Millennial or older) you won’t be able to stop singing, “Call Goldberg! 800-600-6014,” for the rest of the day. (You’re welcome.)
Sonic branding is another layer of your brand experience that draws in potential customers and helps make your brand memorable. It’s most effective when utilized uniformly across all marketing...

How to Fix the HTTP Error 400 for WordPress Websites
You are probably familiar with the HTTP 404 error. It’s when the page or document you’ve requested can’t be found. But what about when you get an HTTP error 400, where you’re given the bad request message? That one is a bit trickier, but not anything to worry about. We want to go through some of the most common reason a 400 error occurs, ways to fix it when it does, and steps you can take to prevent it from happening.
What is the HTTP Error 400?
Of all the HTTP errors that people get, this is one of the more common errors that happens on the user’s end. That’s not to say that server admins don’t have to worry about it. They do. But in many cases, the request is bad from the beginning, and the website can’t make sense of it. So instead of even trying to fulfill it, it just gives you a 400.
Luckily, there are some things you can do to push the request on through to the server processes and get it carried out. Let’s look at some of the causes, then, and how you can fix them.
Browser Cache and Cookie Issues
We’ve said it before, and we will say it again. Clearing your browser cache is the “turn it off, then back on” of HTTP errors. Or really, most internet errors. Unfortunately, doing this will absolutely not fix everything. However, if there’s been a corruption somewhere, an expired cookie, or just...
The WordPress.com Referral Program: Encourage Others to Start a Website
All of us know interesting people with unique talents. Some have business ideas. Others write beautiful poetry. Some are inspired to make the world a better place. 

If they’re not online, they should be. If you’ve ever encouraged a friend or family member to create a blog, launch a podcast, or sell what they make online, the WordPress.com Refer-a-Friend program is your chance to help them get started.

How the referral program works

With the Refer-a-Friend program, you and people in your network can earn credits for your WordPress.com websites. When you invite friends, family, and colleagues — or even your own site visitors — to build a website, they’ll receive a US$25 credit toward a WordPress.com plan. (Note: referrals need to be new WordPress.com customers.)

Every time someone you refer purchases a plan, you receive a US$25 credit, too! The credit will be applied within two months after your referral signs up and makes an eligible purchase.

Under current pricing, a $25 credit offers more than 50% off the first year of a Personal plan and more than 25% off the cost of a Premium plan. Plus, your referrals also receive a free custom domain name for their first year.

Here’s how to start:

Log in to your WordPress.com account and go to Tools → Earn.Locate your unique referral link in the Refer-a-Friend section.Copy the link...
