2020 Black Friday Tech Deals for Designers and Business Owners

SM&Co Favorites

These are tools we love and wanted to highlight in particular.

Dubsado – If you grab nothing else this sales season, get yourself up using a CRM—Dubsado is the one we use and we love it because it’s totally customizable for your own workflow and business. If I could roll back the clock and do anything differently in my business, getting a proper CRM setup would be number one, no joke! The amount of time and efficiency this little tool brings me is uncountable. Use the code SARAHMOON here for an additional discount!

Podia – Our favorite hosted course platform is offering 15% and upgrades count too. So if you’re thinking that it’s time to go from courses to memberships, this is a great deal. Click here for the info!

Elementor – Hello, this is a no-brainer! Elementor is the bomb dot com of WordPress page builder plugins and I could not love it more. See all the cool stuff on my website? That’s thanks to Elementor. They’re having a sale on their plugin right now, no code needed.

Deposit Photos – Via App Sumo you can purchase a ton of stock photo credits for just $39. This is probably the can’t miss deal in this whole lineup! I buy this every year and it’s incredibly useful. Get the deal here. (These do run out so I’d grab it ASAP.)

Squarespace – As usual, Squarespace is offering a 10% discount for Black Friday. Use this link and the code BLKFRI10 when subscribing.

For Designers

In addition to the Dubsado deal and DepositPhotos offer from App Sumo, here are a handful of handy tools for our fellow designers.

My Web Audit – This is a great tool for you non-SEO experts who want to provide clients and leads with top-level audit snapshots in a systemized way. It’s not as in-depth as Moz or similar tools, but it’s likely enough to start a conversation. You can customize the reports nicely and the team behind it is quality. Click on the banner at the top of their website for the deals.

Ghost Plugins – This lovely crew of folks has 30% off their paid plugins and templates for Black Friday. No code needed, click here to access!

Affinity Products – We ditched Adobe Creative Suite a few years back in favor of Affinity and haven’t looked back. While brand designers likely still need Adobe, lighter weight users will likely be perfectly content with the cheap, one time payment of Affinity. They’re offering 30% off all their products.

Astra WordPress Theme – If you prefer to relay on premade templates as a starting point for your WordPress designers, grab yourself an agency license for Astra! They have amazing readymade sites to help you launch clients quickly. Grab a discount of up to 40% right now.

Creative Market – If there’s something you’ve had your eye on, see if it’s included in the big sale they’re having. (Don’t forget to check the licenses!) Click here for the discounted products.

SerpStat – This is a good tool for doing audits of client sites and it’s a much cheaper price tag than Moz etc. They’re offering 10-20% off subscriptions. Click here to access the deal.

Courses/Membership Tools

In addition to Podia, which I mentioned above, most of the big players in the membership and course space are having deals right now.

Teachable – Teachable is another solid all in one course platform that’s very popular. They’re doing a bundled sale as well. Click here and follow the Black Friday banner.
