If you are in the market for hosting, an email marketing service, a keyword research tool or for more subscribers – this is the time to act!
Black Friday doesn’t just apply to shops and Amazon, online products are often heavily discounted at this time of year too.
Below, I have compiled a list of the best deals on my favourite products. They are all products I personally use and recommend or my own book and courses.
Jump in quick as this really is the cheapest time of year for these services and keep checking back as I can’t publish news of a sale until it has actually started so expect this list to get longer on Black Friday and on Cyber Monday.
Best Keyword Tools
My favourite keyword research is even better with 40% off with code: BLACKFRIDAY.
This deal is for new sign-ups or upgrades – this includes upgrading from a starter to a pro plan. You keep the 40% off while you remain a subscriber.
I can’t recommend KeySearch enough.
You can see it in action here.
Did the change to Amazon Sitestripe catch you by surprise? Still want to have images in your affiliate posts, but are stuck on how to do it?
You have two options. Learn how to do it yourself or us a plugin.
I bought this plugin on AppSumo a few years ago and have been using it to insert Amazon images ever since.
It is really handy and can connect to the various Amazon programs including US and Australia.
It’s currently on sale on AppSumo for the next few days.
Here’s an EASY step-by-step guide on how to set up the PA-API from Amazon. How to get the images (in the Amazon-proscribed way) as HTML that you can use in your blog posts.
This 9 page, straight-to-the-point guide will show you how to get images without needing yet another plugin (and save you money on buying one).
It’s usually $9.99, but DNW community members can get it at the special price of $4.99 with the code: DNWBLACKFRIDAY
But this only works until the end of Cyber Monday.
Buying a stock photo subscription is one of the best things I have spent money on in my blogging business. It makes life so much easier to know I always have photos.
Currently, you can buy 100 quality stock photos for just $35!
Note that there is an extra 10% off right now once you add it to your cart.
I have a subscription with Depositphotos myself, so handy, and this is the cheapest price I have ever seen it for. I just bought it again a couple of times myself!
Make Social Media Simple
SmarterQueue is my absolute favourite social media tool as it doesn’t just make scheduling content easier (especially to my Facebook groups) but it takes the time out of it all together thanks to its recycling feature. Simply set up a queue of posts once and they’ll continually recycle until you tell it to stop.
It’s not just for Facebook either and also works for Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Instagram. They are currently testing out TikTok too.
Right now until the end of Cyber Monday, you can get 40% off for the first year on any annual plan or 30% off if you select a monthly plan for the first 6 months.
This is only for new members and you start with a free trial so you can sign up and try it out for a week before needing to fully commit.
Tailwind is the best tool there is for Pinterest management and growth and they are offering a BIG discount over Black Friday and Cyber Monday for anyone who is new to Tailwind.
Save 50% on annual plans!
You can sign up for the free plan and then upgrade with the discount over the Black Friday weekend.
Email Marketing Services
Email marketing services can be especially pricey so here’s your chance for a great deal!
GetResponse, one of my favourite email marketing services, is 15% off on monthly plans both for new customers and for upgrades for existing customers. There’s also 30% off if you buy a 12 month plan or 40% off if you take up their two-year discount offer.
Get in quick though as it’s only for the first 2500 sign ups!
One of the most popular email marketing services in the DNW group, this is one of the cheapest options for email marketing on the market. It’s also intuitive to use and easy to get started, although it does lack some of the power and control of the more expensive email marketing systems.
The great news is that it’s even cheaper right now!
Sign up to get 30% off the first month of any monthly plan, or grab an annual Advanced plan for 33% off the whole year (that’s equivalent to 4 months free)!
If you want a fast theme that’s easy to customise, powerful and looks great, consider GeneratePress! I use it.
The best news is that it’s up to 25% off right now starting at just $44 for up to 500 sites!
If you want real control over how your blog looks, I highly recommend Divi. It’s beautiful. And at the moment, it is the cheapest you will ever find it with up to 62% off until the end of Sunday.
Lyrical Hosting is a quality host with great support. It is the host I see raved about over and over again in the DNW Facebook community.
They are currently offering up to 15% off many of their hosting plans.
In addition to the discount, you’ll receive a free bundle of blogging resources and stock photos and your choice of other items including five trees planted!
A2 Hosting is a quality host with good support.
They are currently offering up to 85% off shared hosting.
This means hosting starts at $1.99/month.
I’m a big fan of SiteGround especially at these prices! They are my favourite host.
There is up to 85% off all shared hosting plans with prices starting at $1.99/month.
Quick! This deal finishes at the end of Black Friday. See the latest prices and sign up here.
Domains And Hosting
NameCheap is offering many discounts – with up to 99% off domain names and 80% off hosting.
.com domain names are just $6.98. Hosting starts at $11.76 a year.
There’s never been a better time to start a few new sites!
Of all the plugins I have used over the years, this has been by far the most valuable to my blogging business.
I use WPForms for taxi bookings, travel enquiries and contact forms on my site. I love it.
It can connect to stripe, paypal and more to accept payments and create payment subscriptions. It has conditional logic to create quite complicated forms or you can use it as a simple contact form.
Right now, it’s heavily discounted with up to 70% off. I wish I had been able to get it during this sale!
Note that this sale finishes at the end of Black Friday itself so don’t delay.
Blogging Tools – AppSumo
AppSumo is THE place to go for amazingly cheap deals on blogging tools and services. The best part is that they have some “early” Black Friday specials available right now.
From video tools to AI image generators to SEO reporting, this is just the tip of the iceberg of what they offer for cheap.
Note that there is an extra 10% off all deals right now which you will see after you add your app to the cart.
Here are some tools on sale that are relevant to bloggers…
Email marketing systems are generally very costly. But, they don’t have to be!
Here’s a cheap alternative… SendFox.
It’s not as powerful as some of the other solutions out there, but it is an absolutely great price at around $44 right now for lifetime access!
This AI-based transcription service not only transcribes audio from podcasts and videos quickly and easily but can also summarise the content, you can ask it questions and more.
This tool turns your WordPress site into an app for phones and tablets, quickly and easily.
I bought it myself last year and now have an app for one of my sites available 🙂
If you run a Facebook group, you’ll know how valuable it is to have a tool to help you approve new group members while capturing their email address as quick as possible.
Tools that do this can be expensive though. The good news is that they don’t have to be! This tool will do it for you for a one off, great priced fee of $87.
I currently use Group Leads to do this, but have just bought this to try it out and save the ongoing fees with Group Leads.
Get More Email Subscribers
OptinMonster is an awesome tool for collecting email subscribers. It allowed me to easily set up email optin options across my sites and target different offers to different pages. You can read more about it here.
It’s currently up to 62% off!
Run Your Own Courses/Sell Digital Downloads
Have you ever thought about making an online course?
If the answer is “yes,” then consider Teachable, my favourite course hosting platform. It’s the perfect place to set up and run your own courses.
You can also use it to easily sell digital downloads.
