(Cyber Monday may be over, but these tools are still the shit. So I’m leaving all this info up for you to make better investments in your blog next year.)
It’s the most wonderful time (to shop) of the year!
Don’t you love Black Friday? I do, especially now that you don’t even need to deal with huge crowds to save some big moolah. Hell, I bought a few things before I even got out of bed!
There are a ton of great deals going on that will make it so much easier to grow your book blog. Whether that’s by using a super stylish theme, adding a new feature, or running better contests!
Check them out (some are affiliate links – I know you understand the need to fund a bad book habit!):
Nose Graze: Book Blogging Plugins & Themes
EVERYTHING in Ashley’s shop is 50% off until December 1! She ran this sale last year, and it’s when I finally invested in Tweak Me and the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin, and I haven’t looked back. This deal means Tweak Me v2 is only $34.50 and UBB is just $17.50!
deal also applies to all of the other themes, and add-ons to make your UBB reviews even better, like to automatically send reviews to Goodreads, manage reading challenges and organize review requests from authors. You can even grab a bundle!
OptinMonster: Build Your Email List
Grow your email list with amazing opt-in forms. OptinMonster is a paid WordPress plugin that lets you easily create and add email marketing signup forms that look much better than your tool’s built-in ones. And it hooks right up to tools like MailChimp automatically. 🙂
All of their plans are 35% off with the coupon code BF2015 until December 1, which is pretty fucking cheap for what you get! The lowest paid plan would start at like $32 for a whole year, averaging out to less than 3 bucks per month!
BluChic WordPress Themes
BluChic has the cutest themes in the world! Tied with Nose Graze, in my mind – and that’s a huge compliment! Their themes are fun, flirty, and girly, while still looking clean, simple, and professional. You can even get full branding suites that also come with matching social media and email graphics!
Perfect for taking your WordPress blog to the next level! With their 38% off discount, the themes come in at around $49 and so worth it.
Depositphotos: Use More Interesting Blog Photos
Are you as guilty as me as using the same stock photo a few too many times? Depositphotos is running a deal for 100 stock photos or vectors for $39, so now’s a great time to re-up your photo folder for teasers, social media graphics, and blog images.
KingSumo Giveaways: Run Super Pretty Giveaways
I’ve blogged before about how the best way to grow your blog with giveaways is by focusing it on your email list. KingSumo, from the people behind AppSumo and SumoMe, is a really good looking giveaway plugin for growing your email marketing list. Right now its 75% off for $49 – and that’s lifetime access!
InLinkz: Up Your Linkup Game
If you run challenges, blog hops, or any other type of linkup, definitely take a look at the InLinkz deal running today only. Create thumbnail links, add voting, moderate links, and automatically select winners! It’s $15 for one year, for today only and there’s a limited number of upgrades available.
WooCommerce & WooThemes: Be a #Girlboss
If you’ve ever thought about selling things on your site, you might want to choose now to buy the basic tools. WooThemes and WooCommerce let you design your site and add a store to sell products, physical or digital.
Both are offering 35% off any purchase until November 30.
Easy Digital Downloads: Be a Digital #Girlboss
If you do want to sell things on your blog, but they’ll only be digital, you don’t need the bells and whistles of WooCommerce. Easy Digital Downloads will suit you fine, and they’re giving you 30% off all extensions through November 30!
I know I’ve already spent way too much today. Even though I know it’ll be worth it, I need to freaking stop! Here’s to you having just as much fun with your blog between now and Cyber Monday. 😛
