While I’m no fan of fighting crowds for the best deal on a big screen, I’ve learned that Black Friday and Cyber Monday provide an excellent opportunity to make improvements in my online business and pick up new digital products.
Each year, I put together a list of my favorite deals to pass along to fellow leaders and digital marketers. If you’re looking to start something or simply add extra tools and resources to your digital leadership arsenal, this is the spot!
Many are affiliate links, so I would earn a small commission if you made a purchase, but that doesn’t affect your price at all.
Note: Some of these deals are only available on Black Friday. Others are only Cyber Monday. And some are available for varying lengths of time around these two days. Click the links to check!
For Digital Leaders
I’ve cooked up a little Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal of my own that I’m actually a little hesitant to let you in on. I’ve been working on a BIG project for a while now that I haven’t released to the public yet. It’s a new website called The Digital Leadership Lab.
I’ve had it on my heart to help leaders who have a meaningful mission and a powerful message to learn how to get the word out in a thoroughly digital climate. The Digital Leadership Lab is my plan for offering both group coaching and one-on-one coaching for leaders who want to know how to use today’s tech tools to build their platform, lead more people to grow, and achieve a higher level of impact in their world.
It’s not opening to the public until 2019. When it does, the monthly cost for the group coaching will be $35 per month, but IF you’re willing to take a chance on how cool and helpful this will be, I’m offering 80% off, for LIFE if you sign up this year.
So instead of $35 per month, you’ll pay just $7 per month, as long as you remain a subscriber, and you’ll get a private invite to our monthly coaching sessions, access to recorded archives for any sessions you miss, PLUS access to the Digital Leader’s Resource Vault (a $99 value) where I’ll be storing all kinds of helpful ebooks, mindmaps and checklists, printable files, and templates. If you’d rather pay annually, it would be $77 per year instead of $385, for life.
Bonus: Also, once you’re IN, you can become an affiliate for the Lab and earn 30% commission, for life, for anyone else you refer with your affiliate link. That includes group coaching, one-on-one coaching, and every product I release in the future (I’m working on at least two higher ticket courses for release next year).
Furthermore, I’ll always offer a money-back guarantee if the Lab isn’t helpful, but since you’ll be signing up way early, I’ll extend that refund period through February of 2019 just in case you’re not satisfied with what you see once it rolls out to the public.
ChristianBook.com also has a ton of great Black Friday deals on Bibles, commentaries, kids’ books, books on life and leadership, and much more.
For Church Communications Leaders
Church Hero is offering an incredible Cyber Monday Mega Bundle (starting on Black Friday) that includes 9 different bundled deals for church leaders and creatives.
Richy and Andrew run a marketing company together and they’ve released a really special deal for churches on a Christmas Ad Pack. It’s a bundle of ready-to-go, plug-and-play Facebook Ads for churches, PLUS training in how to use Facebook Ads to reach more first-time guests!
MinistryDeal’s bundle, in partnership with MinistryPass, is sweet! It’s $3,429 worth of sermon and media resources for just $97! The bundle contains nicely designed graphics for sermon series’, announcements, and events, plus sermon preparation materials and more.
MinistryDownloads.com has a gigantic library of downloadable resources for preachers, church communications pros, youth leaders, and much more. Their All Access membership is on sale for $17 per month, but if you use my coupon code, BCox, you’ll get another $4 off, so it’s $13 per month!
Remember to use coupon code BCox for $4 off on the shopping cart page.
For Website Creators, Bloggers, and Online Business Owners
ConvertKit is my email marketing and segmentation tool of choice. They offer visual automations, which are awesome, and the ability to create rules to tag subscribers so you can target different emails to different segments of your list. It’s also super easy to use!
For Cyber Monday this year, they’re offering an incredible deal on their Creator Kit, which includes a year of ConvertKit plus Creator Pass, a suite of tools for online course creators, email sequence templates, three months of Teachable, and the books I Am A Blogger and Authority.
Elegant Themes is owned by Nick Roach, is responsible for the Divi WordPress Theme, which runs my website and tens of thousands of others, too. Plus, the Bloom plugin (I use this, too) for collecting email addresses and the Monarch plugin (and I use this, too) for adding social media follow and sharing buttons! The combination of Divi + Bloom + Monarch is what I now install on every WordPress-powered website I develop. Get a membership (or upgrade yours) for 25% off! Here’s the link for the
WPForms (for creating all kinds of forms on your website) and OptinMonster (for capturing leads, creating exit pop-ups, etc.) are both hosting special Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I use both of these tools, and their accompanying WordPress plugins, on various sites that I develop, including this one.
SiteGround is my web hosting of choice for anything I’m not developing on Wealthy Affiliate’s Siterubix platform (such as THIS site you’re currently on). If you’re wanting to launch or move your blog, they have an awesome WordPress Start or WordPress Migration system – be blogging in just a few clicks! They’re the best in the industry when it comes to stable servers and fast, awesome support.
Wealthy Affiliate is my favorite online learning community for internet marketing. With Wealthy Affiliate, you can learn how to build niche websites that expand your online influence and earn an online income. The lessons, the website building tools, and the friendly and helpful community is all built right in. Their Black Friday deal is an annual Premium membership for $299 (normally $359, and the monthly is usually $49 which would total $588).
Udemy is running a sale on ALL of their courses – over 55,000 to pick from. Learn anything, from thousands of experts, for just $9.99 (instead of the usual prices, which can be as much as $200 per course).
I just recently started using WeVideo to put together some videos for different web projects. You start with a template, use stock footage or videos and stock audio, add motion titles and more, then render and download. It’s video-editing for non-video-editors like me.
Long Tail Pro is a pretty awesome SEO tool. It allows you to do keyword research and in depth competitor analysis. Basically, if you want to know how to write blog posts that rank at the top of Google search results, Long Tail Pro is spot on. Their Cyber Monday deal is lifetime access with 10,000 keywords for just $27, one time.
