Black Friday is the BEST time of year to stock up on software and services to complement your online business and you can get started early!
Fortunately, many of the deals start early so it makes sense to grab them up as soon as you can. I will be adding to this posts as the week progresses, so check back often as I find and add the best deals to help you promote and manage your business online.
First up is AppSumo’s offerings
I have used AppSumo for years and they are simply the very BEST place to get huge deals on software and online web promotional tools, etc. The really great benefit of AppSumo is that they often get you access to premium plans at or below the cost of what you would pay if you went directly to the software vendor.
One of my favorite tools is called Rytr. It is an AI (artificial intelligence) tool that helps you to create blog posts and content quickly, using automated processes.
Here is a sample that I create in just a few seconds using Rytr:
Black Friday is a day that most retailers look forward to because it is the day when they make the most sales. It has been a retail tradition for years, but this year, some companies start their sales early.
Retailers are starting their sales earlier in order to lure in customers who may not be able to make it to the stores on Black Friday. They are also trying to get people excited for shopping before Thanksgiving.
Some stores are offering savings on products that are popular during other holidays like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. They do this because they want to capitalize on the holiday spirit and generate more sales.
… so that was what I created rather quickly but you have a ton of choices that allow you to do much more, so check out Rytr.
Next up is Ocoya.
I just signed up for this one myself today. It allows you to quickly set up all of your social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. and create posts within their system that you can schedule for delivery. This is a huge time saver and I’m looking forward to using some of the built-in creatives options.
If you need stock photos for your website you MUST either use properly licensed images or photos that you have taken or have rights to yourself. As I have warned my clients about during the past couple years, it is a concern you should not take lightly, as there are “bounty hunters”, etc. out there who are scavenging through all websites hoping to find unlicensed images, which they then report to the image owners.
This usually results in an email warning that you have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to resolve the issue, so make certain to use properly licensed images only, if at all possible. You can get a lifetime deal of Depositphotos here.
The above are just a few of many fantastic tools you can get at a discount to manage your online business. Please take a moment to check them out as well as many others for just about anything that relates to your business!
