Did you get someone else to do your website? Did they design a WordPress website? If so, and you don’t see the Plugins section then unfortunately you don’t have full access to your website! This means that when you want to add anything to your website that will improve its performance you will need to go through the designer and they will charge for this. Where possible, get others to design (if you can’t) but hand over the FULL website and use the FREE chat facility that most service providers offer if you need that added support.
Each time you Like a Facebook page as your business page it is recorded as a Like on other pages however, the count won’t go up. To support other business pages (and hope they return) Like their business page as your personal account and it will reflect in their Like count.
Having trouble with images on your website/blog/social media pages? Are they the wrong size? Then use the FREE Picresize.com service online.
