I know one thing about bloggers and it's that we need to save money. There are so many things to buy when it comes to your blog: hosting, design, fonts, you name it! So I've compiled a list of some of the best sales you can find on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for bloggers and influencers. And I've decided to offer a sale!! I'm offering 50% off (this is insane and it's never been done before) of ALL products in my shop! Use code “DEAL”. This applies to Lightroom presets and my ebook: Instagram Unlocked.

I'm so excited for Black Friday and Cyber Monday so I'll be updating this post to keep you in the know for all the deals.

Now, let's get to the 2017 best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for bloggers and influencers!

My favorite way to shop is inside because lines are frankly the enemy. So let's see what I scooped up. From resources for growing your blog, photography, fonts, and more.

Cash back on all online purchases: Ebates

There is one thing I ALWAYS use while shopping online and that's Ebates. That's because you get cash back as you shop like you normally would. This is not necessarily blogger related. But if you're going to shop online AT ALL I suggest using this tool. It's a no brainer if you plan to do any online or Christmas shopping!


Web hosting: Siteground

This is the most important part when starting your blog. I HIGHLY recommend WordPress, a full explanation on why here. After you get setup on WordPress (.org in case you're wondering) you need hosting. I always recommend Siteground and show you step-by-step how to set it up here. I myself am a customer of Siteground and it can handle my website traffic and then some. This is SO important. It also has some of the best customer service around!
