Since summer is already here, you can expect that the Small Business Deals: July 2022 Edition will have tons of new deals.
I can’t say for sure why we have more deals in summer than in any other season.
Is it because the warm weather makes it a lot easier for people to open up their wallets?
This is something that I tend to ponder as well as I take a look at all the deals that I came across.
While some of them made me curious enough to try it, some don’t give me enough reason to try due to a huge commitment.
Case in point: hosting services such as WPEngine.
Don’t get me wrong. WPEngine is an amazing hosting service. But trying out the service will require me to move my website to WPEngine.
Sure, WPEngine offers a free migration service. But it can still be a huge commitment unless I want to switch to WPEngine permanently.
What’s more, I have yet to reach a point where I have already outgrown my current hosting plan with Hostgator.
If you’re thinking of setting up your author website on a self-hosted WordPress, I do recommend Hostgator since this is the hosting that I currently use for both The Efficient You and my fiction author website, Sekina Mayu.
Don’t forget to use the coupon EFFICIENT during checkout to receive $9.94 off on any plan during your first month.
But what if the basic plan can no longer accommodate your website anymore? Then WPEngine is perfect for you since it’s meant for a website that has a huge volume of traffic every month.
For more amazing deals, let’s take a look at what else we have in Small Business Deals: July 2022 Edition.
New social media management tool in the house
For many of us, we know Namecheap as a place to buy domain names, hosting services, and SSL certificates.
But little that we know that Namecheap also has a social media management tool called RelateSocial.
So, what is RelateSocial, and what it can do for you?
To put it simply, RelateSocial is a social media management tool that allows you to manage all of your social media channels in one dashboard.
You can think of RelateSocial as something similar to Buffer and Hootsuite where you can post simultaneously to all social media channels, keep track of the trends, find new leads, and analyze your engagement rate on all social media channels.
While RelateSocial allows you to post directly to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Google My Business, what makes RelateSocial stands out the most is the price and its unlimited scheduling.
Well, that is if you compare it to similar tools like Buffer, Zoho Social, and Sprout Social.
What’s more, it even has a free media library where you can access the library right from your dashboard.
Now you can create a social media post right away without having to search all over the Internet for the right image.
Thinking about wanting to give RelateSocial a try?
The good news is you can give RelateSocial a try for 30 days, which is a lot longer than the Buffer free trial.

My thought about RelateSocial
So, what do I think about RelateSocial? Is it worth your time and money using it?
To be honest, I won’t deny that the pricing and the unlimited scheduling are a big draw for me. The only drawback with RelateSocial is that it doesn’t have a direct posting feature to Pinterest.
Sure, Pinterest has its own scheduling tool. So, it’s not necessary to use a third-party tool to schedule your post on Pinterest.
But the problem with the Pinterest scheduling tool is that you can only schedule a Pinterest post that has a live link.
You can’t use it to schedule your scheduled blog post on Pinterest.
Since RelateSocial doesn’t have a direct posting feature to Pinterest, does it mean that I won’t give RelateSocial a try?
Well, of course, the answer is I will.
So, please keep an eye on the future blog post about my RelateSocial trial experience.
