Yes, it’s Black Friday week and you can find some of the best deals on the internet this week. It used to be more of a long weekend thing from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, but now it’s become an 8 day phenomenon. Many sales are starting today on Monday and go through Monday 11/29.
But, the sales vary on start and end date, and I can’t announce all of them here. There are a couple of private sales that I can’t share in a public blog post, but if you have an interest, you can sign up for my free email list here.
I’m going to start with Blogger courses and ebooks. I will be adding more here as the deals unfold.
Please note that this article contains affiliate links. That means that if you buy something on here, I may earn a commission at no extra cost to you. I recommend products that I think are great and good value.
Great Courses and ebooks for Bloggers
But, please only buy things that you really need, not just because they are priced low. Bad products are never worth it, even if they’re free.
I will do my best to share products that I think are helpful and reasonably priced. Some are available now, some soon and some I can’t announce yet.
SEO ebooks and course
First, let’s start with my SEO ebooks. They are on sale between now and Monday (11/30).
SEO Bundle of both $20 off the already discounted price (BLACKFRIDAY20). This is $40 off the price of buying them each separately.
Note: the normal price if bought separately $114, but as a bundle, just $74 for this week only.
Easy SEO Revamp (for intermediate/advanced $30 off (BLACKFRIDAY30)…so it’s just $97 (rather than $127).
Please note that Easy SEO Revamp is more advanced SEO. It assumes you already have (or know) the 1st 2 SEO books. Use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY30 for $30 off.
Next, we have Journey to the Center of Amazon – This course is especially good for newer bloggers and bloggers where physical products make sense (most B2C niches). This course is getting an upgrade this week, so the normal price is $97. But during Black Friday week, use BLACKFRIDAY30 for $30 off bringing it down to just $67 where it normally sells like hotcakes.
I’ve started to make the upgrades, but didn’t finish physically adding them. I plan to do that at the end of the week (or so). Everyone who buys or has bought will get the upgrades for FREE.
And finally, we have my Affiliate Marketing Compendium. This is for general affiliate marketing (not specific to Amazon). It’s recently gotten an upgrade so there are now 73 clever affiliate marketing tips for intermediates and advanced bloggers.
The normal price is $147, but use coupon BLACKFRIDAY50 for $50 off bringing it to just $97.
And, there will be another upgrade around Jan/Feb and everyone who buys will get those upgrades for free).
I just crossed the $200,000 threshold for affiliate commissions so far this year. This compendium shares my best affiliate marketing tips.
Mike Pearson – Stupid Simple SEO Self Study
This just in…for the first time…Mike is offering Stupid Simple SEO in a self-study format.
This is really exciting as it will give some of you the opportunity to join at a true value price. You can check it out here.
Just to be clear, this is the self-study version of the course and does not include his Facebook group nor the bonuses. But, it’s only $297, so this makes it highly affordable.
Kate Doster’s Love Your List
While we’re on the topic of self-study, Kate Doster is offering her amazing email course, Love Your List in Self-Study format. Actually, she is the originator of this concept.
You can get her flagship course at this value price, only at this time of the year. The self-study version excludes her Facebook group, nor her round table hot seats where she helps you personally on your opt-ins or sales pages.
The good news is that this Black Friday weekend, she is opening up BOTH choices. So, if you want the whole shebang (which I found super helpful), you can do that. Or if you want the value priced option, you can choose that.
Alex & Lauren – Create & Go
My absolute favorite course is on sale – 6 Figure Blogger.

In fact, all of their courses are 25% off with that coupon. But, 6 Figure Blogger is the truly special one that I absolutely love love love.

This is my #1 recommendation for this week.

I’ve mentioned Jon many times before. I’m in awe of his ability to create and grow niche sites. He usually earns $80,000-$100,000 a month revenue on his niche sites. Yes, he has some expenses, too so the net profit is a bit lower, but Wow.

It’s really inexpensive…normally, just $17.

Next, in case you haven’t seen it yet, AppSumo has their semi annual deal on DepositPhotos.
Normally, the photos are around a dollar, and twice a year, they run a deal where you can get 100 photos for $49. But, this time it’s even lower…only $39.
Yes, that’s only 39 cents a photo. Good photos are critical for your blog, Pinterest and SEO, so I often buy 2 packs.
Last Black Friday was the first time I got a Membership for Pixistock. And, I’m glad I did. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.
DepositPhotos is great for everyday photos and room scenes. But there are plenty of times where I want more lifestyle photos or flatlays or stylized photos. There are tons of awesome shots, and every month, photos are added to the collection. There’s no limit to the amount of downloads, and the portfolio keeps getting larger.
What’s extra cool about Pixistock is that there is a diversity of models, and I really appreciate it. Also, Alicia asks for feedback and suggestion on the subject line up. And, she actually listens. I’m loving Pixistock.
In addition to photos, there are templates and some training. As an extra cool bonus, anyone that buys the membership by Dec 1st will get free access to Reels Roadmap course.
For Black Friday, Alicia is running a $100 off the annual membership. And, that discount will renew each year (for as long as you want). Totally reasonably priced (and lower than what I thought it would be.
I was just introduced to the Ivory Mix collection in September. And, let me just say wow. It’s awesome for feminine stylized photos.
For Black Friday weekend, you can save $20.21 off of VIP Access.
Site speed course from iMarkInteractive
First, if you are a DIY person, I highly recommend Grayson’s new Site speed course. And, you can get it for 20% off.
No coupon code will be needed.
Mariam Tsatsuryan – Freelance and Marketing
- Her essential ADA Compliance Now course is back open…and at a sweet Black Friday Special. You can get $30 off…so that you are getting it at the INTRO price. Plus, everyone that buys as part of the Black Friday special will also be invited to a FREE Q&A session where you can ask for help or clarification on ADA compliance.

Amira Law – A Self Guru
- Get 40% off all legal templates and the legal bundle

This was probably my most valuable purchase from last Black Friday. I didn’t even realize what I was missing. The major win has been better conversion on my product sales and opt-ins. This alone makes them worth it.
Second, it makes my site faster. And, it makes my process of creating Landing Pages faster.
Third, there are a lot of other nice features including site-wide or page specific pop ups.
And, best of all, you can get these 60% off. Yes, that’s less than what I paid. You can check out LeadPages here.

Best hosting for newer bloggers – NameHero
As many of you know, good hosting plays a key role with your speed (and uptime), so don’t skimp here. Hosting is not that expensive, but is critical for running a business.
My favorite one for new bloggers/new blogs is NameHero. Among the entrypoint hosts, they are the fastest and have great support. They are a bit better and faster than SiteGround and a bit less expensive.
And, best of all, they’ll be running a Black Friday special, so you don’t want to miss out.
They will have discounts for new and for existing customers.
I recommend NameHero for new blogs and all the way up to 100,000 pv/month. (Once you get to that level, you’ll either want to upgrade to NameHero’s managed hosting or Big Scoots (the host I use as they specialize in WordPress sites that are over 100,000 pageviews).
NameHero will have their best deal on Black Friday itself (from 9am-midnight CST), as well as great sales on Cyber Monday (starting at 10am CST). The details will be announced on their page once we reach those dates.
WP Rocket – For caching (helps with speed)
Caching helps speed up your site by saving your images and text to that users can access you page faster. When I switched to WP Rocket, it really improved my site speed. It’s one of the only plugins I pay for. Worth it. I got it 2 Black Fridays ago.
They have a 30% discount (no coupon coded needed). It will be available next middle of 12/2.
ShortPixel – Image Compression (helps with speed)
One of the biggest reasons sites are slow is due to large images. You need to compress your images, and ShortPixel is the best one out there. (It compressed 5-10x more than Smush). I couldn’t believe how much faster my site was after ShortPixel.
You can do a bulk compression too. Best of all, this is super inexpensive. I recommend using the one-time plan (not monthly) as you get so much more. I bought the $19.99 plan a few years ago. It looks like it will last me at least another 10 years.
During their Black Friday Special (Friday to Monday), you can get a bonus of 400% more credits so it will last you even longer.
