When it comes to physical gifts, I’m a minimalist. I try not to own more than fits in my apartment. But when it comes to my business – especially an ecommerce store – I want to make sure I have every piece of software that can help me make more money.
Now of course that starts with hosting – which we do here at Hostdedi. We’re giving you an unprecedented 75% off 3 months of our most popular Managed WordPress, Managed WooCommerce, or Managed Magento plans.
Once you get hosting, there’s a lot of plugins, themes, modules, and web apps to enhance your digital experience. I’ve scoured the internet, and found some of my favorite Black Friday deals that’ll help you do more with your store.
Look & Feel
No matter what you’re selling, you want a fast & beautiful theme.
For those of you already hosting on Hostdedi, we include Astra with Managed WordPress & Managed WooCommerce. For everyone else, there is a 30% off coupon. We love Astra because it’s incredibly fast & minimalistic. It’s a great starting point for any site.
Now that you’ve got a lean & mean theme, it’s nice to customize it and make it your own. You can take 25% off all Beaver Builder and even 30% off the Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder (which is a 3rd party). Beaver Builder is a page builder that lets you customize the most important pages on your site (like your home page).
Regardless of what software you use to make your website, you’re going to want some high quality images & graphics to go on it. One of my favorite pieces of graphic design software is Affinity Designer and you can get 30% off right now.
We support & love digital commerce, and right now, there’s a ton of deals for people selling things online.
First you can enjoy 30% off IconicWP WooCommerce plugins and bundles.
Again, we already include this in our Managed WooCommerce product. But if you’re on a different host, it’s a great piece of software that we include because it’s so powerful.
If you’re looking for a one-page checkout solution for WooCommerce, you can get 50% off Quick Checkout for WooCommerce.
And if you’re looking to customize the checkout fields for WooCommerce, you can get 50% off Conditional Checkout Fields for WooCommerce.
Selling things online is great – but first you have to get people to your website! You can’t forget the marketing part of your online store or you’ll fail.
If you’re looking to expand into affiliates, one of the premier affiliate plugins in the WordPress space is AffiliateWP and it’s on sale now for 20% off.
One of my favorite ways to get traffic is by search engine optimization, also known as SEO. And the best tools in the WordPress space is Yoast. Take 30% off everything on their site through (date here?)
Even if you sell things online, you’re going to want your website to do other things. Such as having a simple contact form, or developing a more extensive lead generation form. All of this can be done easily with 50% off Gravity Forms.
And if you love Gravity Forms you’ll love Gravity View, which lets you display the results of form submissions on the front end. They’re 30% off right now.
We hope you have a great Thanksgiving & Black Friday. Spend time with friends & family (socially distanced, of course) and maybe also buy some software to improve your online store.
