Whew, Black Friday landed in a flurry of activity, now we are in the throes of THE sale weekend of the year and Cyber Monday is one more sleep to go! So, I thought I should do a bit more research for you and share the Best Buy Cyber Monday Specials for your online business success!
Not so long ago I wrote about Top 10 Online Marketing Tools, specifically my personal favourites which brings me to writing this article all around the exciting offers being made on the tools I love and use for my online business.
Let’s face it, the best referral is word of mouth from someone who knows and uses what they are talking about. You can have confidence in the fact that these are all tools I love and use regularly!
1. Online and Affiliate Marketing Training
My favourite platform without a shadow of a doubt remains the same – Wealthy Affiliate! And boy, oh boy, have they brought the deal of the century our way!
The Wealthy Affiliate Black Friday offer is extended all the way through to Cyber Monday and will close at midnight on Cyber Monday.
This incredible platform really is near and dear to my heart. Not only do I learn everything I possibly need to for my online business success, but I also have access to every single tool I could possibly need to create this business of mine!
You can too! I promise you will not be sorry.
Rather than repeat every word I have already written about what is on offer, here is the article I shared on Black Friday, which is also available for the Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday.
2. Keyword Research Tool (Plus Niche & Website Research & Track Rankings Too!)
Understanding what keywords are and how they contribute to your online business success is absolutely vital. I am excited to introduce you to The World’s Most Advanced Keyword Tool – Jaaxy.
There is no stand-alone Cyber Monday promotion for Jaaxy, however, you are welcome to take advantage of 30 Free Searches if you sign up on a Starter Account.
When you sign up with Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to Jaaxy as follows:
- Free WA Starter Account – 30 Free Searches
- Wealthy Affiliate Premium Account – Free Access To Jaaxy Lite
- Wealthy Affiliate Premium Plus+ Bundle – Complete Access To Jaaxy Enterprise (which is what I have – it’s awesome!)
Remember, should you decide to sign up on the Wealthy Affiliate Black Friday / Cyber Monday special, you get everything at a reduced price!
3. Website Hosting & Support
To be successful, your online business needs a solid foundation.
Your website is your business, it’s vital to ensure your website is stable and well-supported. To do this you need the best hosting, site security, and site support in the business.
I have conducted loads of research in this area and, as I am sure you are aware, there are many, many options out there!
It will come as no surprise to you that the website hosting and support I choose is connected to Wealthy Affiliate. And my selection criteria were not based on that.
What is the name of the WA Site Hosting and Support? None other than Site Rubix!
Please do not take my word for it though, go ahead and try it out for yourself – you can do that for free by choosing a subdomain!
4. Email AutoResponder – AWeber
There are many autoresponders available to choose from.
I currently work with two:
- MailChimp – great for NPO and pro bono work I do but are not affiliate marketing friendly at all
- AWeber – who have recently brought out an AWeber Free Plan – Yip, 100% FREE!
You can read all about that in an article I recently wrote, or watch a video telling you all about the AWeber Free Plan:
5. Canva Free Graphic Design Tool
You can sign up with Canva for free and then decide later which membership you’d like to sign up for – if any paid membership at all. that is right, with Canva you do not have to become a paid member, you can stay free.
It just depends on your needs!
The Canva options are free, Canva Lite ($6.98 per month), Canva Pro ($12.95 per month) and Canva Enterprise ($30 per month per member).
I invite you to read more about Canva – which, just happens to be an amazing online tool and offers training for the likes of me who have never studied graphic design.
6. Writing Tools
Every one of us needs as much help as we can get when it comes to writing. As online marketers, this is more important than I can even describe.
A little disclaimer here – my articles are never perfectly written. I do use the tools available and I also try my best to make everything 100% perfect. I don’t get it right 100% of the time though. Please bear with me.
That said, Grammarly is a massive help! It’s not known as the World’s Best Grammar Checker for nothing!
I encourage you to sign up with Grammarly, you can sign up for free or commit to a paid option if you have the budget available.
7. Pretty Links
There are other link shorteners available on the market, Pretty Links is my favourite.
There are two main reasons:
a. Pretty Links is extremely easy to use
b. Pretty Links always includes my site name in the shortened name. Here is an example:
https://latebloomerwealthyaffiliate.com/eysh – which is a link to some Freebies for Bloggers, you are welcome to take a look.
8. Google Analytics
This tool is AMA-ZING (as we say in South Africa!). Google Analytics offers every trend and analytic you could ever need.
You will be able to see how many visitors you have had to your site, how long they spent reading your content, the clicks on articles, click-through rates, your average position on the web, and more!
Google Analytics is free to sign up with so there really is no excuse to not take advantage of this incredible tool.
I invite you to enjoy some Google Analytics training which is presented within Wealthy Affiliate by our training chief, Jay.
This amazing tool was introduced to me by a fellow community member.
Tailwind operates like magic! This amazing tool assists with pinning to your Pinterest and posting to Instagram.
When I took on the trial for Tailwind I was blown away (no pun intended!). Before I knew it I had thousands of accounts interacting with mine on Pinterest.
Tailwind has a free trial period for 30 days and after that, the price is $9.99 per month per account for Pinterest Plus and $9.99 per month per account for Instagram Plus.
10. Unsplash – Free Images
I am not a photographer and I take my hat off to those who are – such a beautiful art form.
Our websites would not be the same without images – though this particular blog is a bit short on pics.
Unsplash offers gorgeous images for our online businesses and they are free! You can use their images for your website and social media.
There are many places to find free stock images, I wrote about that too, have a look.
Unsplash is my favourite, I am sure you will find yours too.
My Top Recommendation For Cyber Monday:
Before I love and leave you, I encourage you to take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal on offer. I joined in October 2018 and am happier than a piggie in poop.
The value offered is exceptional, you will not regret it!
