Black Friday – Cyber Monday deals frenzy just started and I’m sure your inbox is already full with hundreds of offers with discounts.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed with everything so it’s important to plan your budget very well and purchase only what you need and what helps you with your business.
I’m doing internet marketing for over 10 years and I’m a quite heavy Black Friday shopper so I keep an eye on the offers for weeks before 29 November 2019. Don’t take my word for it, instead check my internet marketing Black Friday deals list.
So here it’s my list of purchases for this Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
You may take it as a recommendation:
1. Growth tools
I’ve used self-hosted popup solutions for many years but I’ve decided to go with OptinMonster that is a SaaS. One of the best services in the world that was improved year after year. Also, it can be integrated easily with both WordPress and non-Wordpress websites. You will soon see some new pop-up forms in our network of sites.
1.2 RafflePress with a 35% discount
RafflePress is one of the best WordPress giveaway and contest plugin. It allows you to grow your email list, social media followers, and website traffic by creating viral giveaways and contests. It comes with a drag and drop builder to set up a giveaway instantly.
2. SEO Tools & Courses
I’m a heavy user of SEMrush (you may check my SEMrush review) for my projects and for customers. I use SEMrush for over 4 years, renewing my license every year. If you haven’t used it before or you want to get some more details about your website or your competitors you can try it one month free using this deal.
Just to make everything clear, I’ve purchased SEMrush before but if I wouldn’t have had it I would take the one-month guru plan free deal.
2.2 SpamZilla – 30% discount
SpamZilla is a domain auction aggregator. It uses around 10 sources including Godaddy auction, NameSnap, Dynadot auction etc and shows them in a friendly way. You can filter them by language, traffic, SEO metrics, etc and purchase some awesome domains with SEO power and branding..some as old as 24 years old or with a DA over 70.
For the record, I have an active SpamZilla membership but going to cancel and resubscribe to get it discounted 🙂
2.3 On-Page Quick Wins (50+ Actionable On-Page SEO Tips)
Daniel Cuttridge released his first ebook on ON-Page SEO and it’s full of powerful advice. There over 50 tips on Schema, Content strategy, internal linking, site structure, keyword research, crawlability, user signals (very important), CTR optimization, featured snippets, voice search optimization, etc.
Get it with a 20% discount (that’s $20 instead of $25) using coupon code: BFRIDAY20 until Tuesday 3rd December.
3. WordPress Plugins & Themes
WP-Rocket makes wonders with the page speed of your website. I’m using this plugin on all our network of websites including Monetize.info and our customer’s websites to make them load under 3seconds.
I’m using ShortPixel for all my image optimization tasks. I’m previously used SmushPro and Imagely but I found ShortPixel being the best option and at a better price. On top of that, they create .webp images for free and you can use WP-Rocket for .webp image delivery.
PerfMatters is going great with WP-Rocket and ShortPixel to further optimize your website speed. You can disable some speed lagging WordPress features that you don’t need and comes with a very powerful Script manager that allows you to select which scripts load where. For instance, contact forms styles and scripts are loaded only on contact page, dash icons are globally disabled etc.
WP-Astra is an awesome theme, 100% compatible with Elementor that comes with already made designs that you can easily import and use to launch your site in hours. I use it mostly to create websites for customers, fast.I’ve purchased this before but you have the chance to get it discounted.
The themes created by StudioPress on the Genesis framework is recognized as being features full and load extremely fast which is a must nowadays. I’ve purchased the themes before at full price of $499 but you have the chance to get them at $399 on this Black Friday.
4. What I keep an eye on:
- (1) FindThatLead – 75% discount – To grab leads and sell more.
- (2) NinjaOutreach – $360 lifetime – As it’s one competitor of our OutreachBuzz you can get it for $99/lifetime
- (3) Netpeak Spider & Checker – 40% Off Deal – For SEO audits
- (4) AMPforWP – 40% Discount – To implement AMP in our network of sites
