I wasn’t planning on writing this post. I thought Black Friday was just for buying presents. Well, apparently, it’s for discounting your blogging courses, too! 😀
I came across so many Black Friday deals for bloggers than I just had to put them in a post. This is your chance to save some big bucks on some excellent ebooks, courses and blogging tools.
Technical Tools to Grow Your Blog
- Leadpages – Get over $2,500 in private trainings when you go Pro – LeadPages is the tool I use for creating landing pages and lead generation popups around my blog. I absolutely LOVE it! For Black Friday they are giving away every workshop they created in 2016 to help you grow your business. (FYI the pro membership is what I have). These are the workshops you will get: Clay Collins’ Interactive Offer 2.0 / Copywriting Virtual Workshop / Lead Magnet Virtual Workshop / Get 10x the Leads from Your Site / Special Offers Virtual Workshop / The Leadpages Webinar Blueprint
- 35% off Optin Monster – Use code BF2016. OptinMonster is another lead generation tool you can use to get more email subscribers. I know lots of bloggers who us it and swear by it although I’ve never used it myself.
- SumoMe 30% off annual plans – This is a crazy robust lead generation toll that allows you to run multiple popup campaigns, track visitors via heat maps, and more. It’s pricey but worth it if you know how to use it properly!
Blogging Ebooks + Courses
1) The Course Course
Yes, you read that right! My friend Gina Horkey and create of some absolutely amazing courses truly knows her stuff when it comes to course creation. I was pretty excited to learn that she has a course on creating courses!
I asked her if she was offering a Black Friday deal and it turns out she is! Click here to learn more if creating a course is one of your goals in 2017.

3) Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing
I have taken over 15 blogging courses, and Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing is hands down one of my favorites! In this course, you will learn how to put together a comprehensive plan to promote affiliates on your blog, and the associated private Facebook group is super helpful. Probably worth the purchase price, if you ask me!
