You can make great savings on purchases for your business during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday week. Here is my round-up of some of the best website and software offers available this year.
Whether you are setting up a new business or would like to grab some additional variations on your existing domain name, this could be the best offer this year – Get a .com domain for just $6.98! In case you aren’t aware, you can redirect domain names to your main website. Let’s say you own mikesplumbers.co.uk, you could also buy mikesplumbing.co.uk or mikesplumbers.com, redirecting them to your chosen main domain.
Most hosting companies have offers running right now, but remember that not all hosting companies are equal. The following are those I am confident recommending, starting with Siteground, who I have personally used for years.
Siteground – up to 86% off and prices starting at just $1.99/mo!
Valid 18th Nov – 4th Dec.
Cloudways – 40% off for 4 months
Valid: until 1st Dec, 2022. Get the deal with Promo Code: BFCM4030.
40% OFF for 4 months (Promo will be applied on first 4 invoices, this offer is applicable on all hosting plans) .
Cloudways are not as simple to use as some other hosting companies, but if you have a little bit of tech knowledge, you should be OK. They let you choose the amount of space you will need, so you can start cheaply and scale later.

Social Media & Marketing
If you find social media for your business a bit of a chore, you might want to invest in some tools that will it easier for you. I start every quarter with an intention to create a social media calendar and schedule all my posts in advance (it doesn’t always happen, but a scheduling tool sure makes it easier!).
SocialBu – 50% off yearly payment
SocialBu allows you to schedule posts and to create some really handy automations, such as automatically sharing posts from your favourite blogs (provided they have an RSS feed). It is great value for business owners (starting from just $6.70 a month for 4 social accounts). For those managing more accounts, it remains competively priced.

Mailerlite – 3 months free
Valid: 21st Nov – 5th Dec.
I’ve been using Mailerlite myself for a few years now. I personally prefer it over Mailchimp because the design interface is simpler and more flexible. It also offers you all functionality for free for up to 1000 subscribers. This means you can start out with all of the functionality free and then upgrade when you have more subscribers. This Cyber week, Mailerlite are offering 3 months free for an annual advanced plan for people who upgrade to the annual Advanced plan during the Cyber Week Sale, November 21st to December 5th. That’s 25% off!
Add Functionality with WordPress Plugins
Create Forms with Ninja Forms – 50% off for new members
Ninja Forms is an excellent choice for beginners (even those with more complex functional requirements). While the basic plugin is free to use, where Ninja Forms really comes into it’s own is the sheer amount of integrations and add-ons available. You can use this plugin to take accept payments, to create user login forms, to allow file uploads and multi-step forms, to integrate with many CRMs, emailing softwares and Slack. For beginners, there is no need to get involved in styling with CSS, because Ninja offers a great Layout & Styles add-on, which gives you a drag-and-drop buildIer.
Improve Performance with WPRocket – 30% off
Speed up your website with this easy to use plugin. This plugin is really easy to configure and has improved load time on every website I have used it on. Put simply, it is the best caching plugin on the market.
Add Surveys or Quizzes with QSM – 30% off
Engage visitors, conduct tests or seek feedback with this simple to use plugin. Out of the box, this plugin does what it says on the tin and with ease. But, where it really packs a punch is with the vast array of add-ons available, such as leaderships boards, drip content, certificates, flashcards, timed questions, conditional logic, exporting results and a user dashboard. Plus there are many software integrations including Mailchimp, ConvertKIT, AWeber & Zapier.
