Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great for holiday shopping, but they are also a time for bloggers (and hopeful bloggers) and other business owners to score some major savings on tools and resources to either start a blog/business or to take it to the next level. I have found my true calling and enjoyment since starting my blogs and I know many of you may be considering starting one of your own or even upgrading to a paid hosting service so you can monetize it. Here are some of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals happening this week. Some are available ONLY on Black Friday or Cyber Monday and others are available for a set time-period so be sure to check the ones you like to make sure you don't miss them!
** Since I'm sending these out early, some of the links may go to “404” page since the sales aren't live just yet. Just be sure to come back here on Friday morning so you can see all the wonderful savings!
WEB HOSTING SERVICES
Have you been wanting to start a blog or migrate your free WordPress blog to a paid one so you can monetize (that means make money lol)? Coming up with the funds to pay for web hosting can be a bit more than most have just lying around (that's why I took so long to migrate). The Web Hosting services below are offering HUGE discounts (70%) for new plans. Not sure which one to choose? I'll be honest – I started both of my blogs on Bluehost but switched over to Siteground a few weeks ago. Why? Since July when I first launched my blogs, my site has had constant server issues which have caused my blog to not load. This means no traffic to my site during those times and a loss of income for me. Siteground migrated my site for free to their server and it's been smooth sailing ever since! Don't just take my word for it – do your own research and choose the one you feel most comfortable with. I'm listing both here so you can check them both out and ask other bloggers for feedback. Regardless of which one you choose, you won't find them cheaper any other time of the year so go ahead and get signed up when the sales go live!
SiteGround (my host of choice) will be offering 70% off annual shared hosting plans ON BLACK FRIDAY ONLY. They are highly recommended for WordPress users and offer super-fast speed and secure hosting. This sale will end at midnight Friday night so if don't miss out on this amazing deal!
Bluehost is also offering savings (up to 75%) on Friday.
BLOG AND WEBSITE THEMES
You can't have a blog or website without a theme! Yes, there are lots of free themes out there, however, they are limited in what you can do with them on monetizing your site and adding plugins. Here are some awesome deals coming up with themes to fit all blogging niches!
This blog is using the Darling theme from Restored 316. I absolutely LOVE it! They have beautiful feminine themes to fit any blogging niche and will be on sale for 30% off!
Versatile and SEO-optimized themes that come in a variety of niche options. Elegant Themes will be on sale for 25% off regular price on Black Friday along with amazing bonuses such as Divi layouts, and more!
StudioPress offers Genesis themes which come SEO optimized (don't need Yoast!) and are versatile and come in a variety of styles. Black Friday savings mean NEW customers will get 25% off and existing customers will get an awesome 50% off purchases!
PLUGINS & MORE!
So many great tools like plugins to help increase speed, add character and more to your blog. Many plugins are free for the basic versions but the upgrades are really where the benefit is!
I LOVE Social Warfare! Aside from giving you all the great sharing buttons which will majorly increase your traffic, it has so many other great uses! My favorite is the “click to Tweet” feature which embeds a clickable quote that readers can tweet directly from the page (which drives more traffic to your site!). It also enables you to hide Pinterest pins without them being visible on your page! Black Friday savings means 30% off!!
CONVERTKIT (email marketing)
Convertkit is an amazing tool for building automated email funnels and more! They don't offer a free version as many other email marketers do but they are well worth paying for! For Black Friday they are offering a 30-day free trial so you can test it out before deciding to purchase! The button below won't go live until the morning of Black Friday (if you click it before then it will show a 404 code). So be sure to come back here on Friday morning! You don't want to miss out on seeing first-hand how awesome this service is!
SCHEDULING TOOLS (for Social Media)
Scheduling tools are a blogger's best friend! Many businesses lose out on traffic to their pages because they are only promoting on one or two social media platforms. Constantly posting takes up a LOT of time – which is something you don't have much of! With these scheduling tools, you can spend a day or two each month scheduling your posts out for the entire month!
Tailwind is a MUST-HAVE for anyone using Pinterest for affiliate marketing -not to mention that Pinterest drives HUGE amounts of traffic to blogs and websites! My number one source of traffic is Pinterest but I wouldn't have that success without Tailwind. They also have Tribes – which are like group boards where others share your pins to their boards (thereby increasing the visibility of your content). You can sign up for free (up to 1000 pins) or just go ahead and get the paid version on Black Friday for 30% off the regular price.
PLANNERS & JOURNALS
One thing a blogger or Girl Boss business owner needs is a great planner! Many of the top planners will also be on sale this coming week! Click on any of the banners below to check out some of these amazing deals!
So that's a great start, right? I just can't believe how awesome some of these savings are going to be. You seriously do NOT want to miss out on these savings because they won't come around again until next year! Be sure to pin this post so you can come back to it on Friday morning.
