Woohoo, it's almost Black Friday / Cyber Monday!
The perfect time to get really good deals on software. In this blog post, I will walk you through the Black Friday Deals for Online Entrepreneurs in 2020. I will focus on the products and services that I personally use and recommend, so that you can invest in the best tools for your online business, for the very best price!
There we go, the best Black Friday Deals for Online Entrepreneurs in 2020 (with a focus on tools for coaches, therapists and healers, because those are most of my clients, and those are the systems I use myself!). Please note that some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means that in case you would decide to purchase any of the recommended services, I will receive a small commission. I only recommend services that I use and love.
If you are running a website on Wordpress (or planning to), then Siteground is the provider I recommend for website hosting (which includes Wordpress and Woocommerce for FREE), and also for domain names. They will offer up to 75% off their services from 27 November until 2 December, which means that you can buy website hosting for as low as 3 euro / USD per month (paid per year). Definitely worth the investment if you want a Wordpress website. I specifcally recommend Siteground because the price is super affordable, their service is fabulous (you can reach them through chat and they will actually solve your problems for you), and their websites are never down.
If you want a Wordpress Website that looks really good and that is easy to maintain, then I recommend investing in the Divi Theme. Divi is both a theme (the theme determines the look and feel of your website) and a builder. With the builder you can easily create websites, without the need to code. Divi is on sale only once a year, and the sale starts on 27 November.
My favorite Social Media Scheduler for Facebook, LinkedIN and Twitter is Smarterqueue. You can read more about Smarterqueue here. Smarterqueue has a fabulous deal, with 40% off their lifetime and annual plans, and 30% off their monthly plans for new subscribers, and an additional 10% off annual plans for existing subscribers.
The best Social Media Scheduler for Pinterest that I've seen is Tailwind. This will help you schedule your pins, and it also helps you easily design new pins.
Okay, it's not a system, but since we are talking about things I recommend, I wanted to add Creative Women's Mastermind. This is a membership for service-based women entrepreneurs. We co-work twice a week, where we get together in a zoom room to get work done and have some company, we mastermind every 2 weeks, and we have coffee chats too. It's a great place to be if you are a solopreneur and you miss company throughout the day. The Black Friday deal allows you to book a free co-working session and/or a trial for $1, until end of December 2020.
Come join us, it's fabulous, and it just so might give you the chance to see me show up in my pyjamas 😂😂.
Camtasia is the tool I use to edit my videos. Like Kajabi, it isn't a cheap tool, but it's definitely worth the investment in terms of the ease of use. You can get 25% off Camtasia from 30 November until 4 December, whoop whoop!
I use Outgrow for my quiz and I love it. For Black Friday, they are offering to build a quiz for new clients for free. You can register for this offer through my affiliate link. Once you get to the website, you can enter the coupon code BlackFriday2K20 in the chatbot at the bottom right of the Outgrow homepage in order to claim this offer. This offer is valid from Black Friday until 1 January.
When you don't have a budget (yet) to hire a designer, then purchasing a few templates can massively upgrade the look and feel or your designs. Canva (see also below) has free templates that look great, but Creative Market has paid templates that are even better, since they are designed specifically for entrepreneurs. They are offering 75% off various designs and fonts until 30 November. You can for example purchase lead magnet templates, or pin templates, or powerpoint slide templates. Just use the search option to find what you are looking for. There is a ton of choice for less than $30 per design.
Okay, okay, it's not a system 😂, but I NEEDED to mention these absolutely fabulous covers for your phone, tablet or macbook from Chic Geeks. They are all 25% off. Check them out (or don't, if you don't want to spend money haha).
Acuity is the meeting scheduler I use on my website. It saves me SO much time having to go back and forth with potential clients and clients! The paid version also lets clients pay for their sessions with you. It's easy to use and easy to implement.
If you want to introduce courses in your online business, then the platform I recommend is Kajabi. Kajabi is an all in one solution for website, email marketing, courses and memberships. It is the easiest to use platform that I've tried and it makes creating courses a lot faster than when you use Wordpress. It is not a cheap system though, that's why the Black Friday Deal is so interesting. You can check it out here.
For super easy and professional DIY design, I can 100% recommend Canva. The free version is fab, the paid version offers a wider variety of stock photos, plus the option to create your own brand kit, which means that you can easily re-use your own brand colors and brand fonts. I couldn't find a Canva deal.
For the group calls for my group coaching program, I use and recommend Zoom. Zoom can also be used for webinars. So far, Zoom hasn't announced a Black Friday offer.
