Black Friday Finds for the Creative Entrepreneur
As a budding minimalist, I am tempted to loathe Black Friday. Getting up early to fight crowds for a consumerist magic trick—get the BEST deals in the store followed by buying a lot of unwanted stuff that you just HAD to buy for the unbeatable price.
On the other hand, I do love a good deal especially when it comes from purpose and planning. If you are at the point in your business where you know you need to up-level your services or business, but cost is an issue, then Black Friday–Cyber Monday has purpose. The shopping holiday serves you instead of ruling you. I created a Black Friday Shopping guide that I hope allows you to grow your business and renew your creative mind without draining your bank account.
I’ve mentioned this before in another blog post, but I strongly believe it is important to legally protect your creative small business. The Contract Shop sells premium contract templates for wedding professionals, bloggers and creative entrepreneurs. The prices reflect the premium product, but during their Black Friday–Cyber Monday sale, you can receive the templates at 40% off. I use them in my personal business, and so do a large number of wedding professionals, calligraphers, bloggers, and entrepreneurs.
Can’t have a Black Friday post without a mention of Amazon, amirite? Amazon probably has almost everything you need for the holiday season, and I definitely have Reina Pomeroy and Dannie Fountain’s newly released book, Big Plan for the Creative Mind, on my Christmas list. Reina Pomeroy is one of the co-hosts of my favorite podcasts—Creative Empire, and I’m a fan-girl of her relatable, yet pointed advice. Big Plan for the Creative Mind features a collection of my favorite industry leaders and their journeys through planning and launching their creative products and businesses.
We believe that because just because we are more creative, more right brained, more flow or intuition oriented, doesn’t mean that one should not plan. In fact, there is an opportunity to do it differently – there’s not just one way to do goal setting.
Restored 316 makes beautiful feminine WordPress themes for the creative entrepreneur. My website is their Refined Theme and it was easy to install and personalize. Many of my clients also use Restored 316 themes for their blogs. Their full-price packages are super reasonably priced, but during Cyber Monday, you can get 25% off themes! If you’ve been thinking about starting a website on WordPress, I’d highly recommend Restored 316.
I’ll admit that web hosting is not exciting during the holidays, but their Black Friday offer of 70% off web hosting packages is too good to not mention. I personally use SiteGround, and if you’ve been having issues with your host or planning to start a website, SiteGround is the way to go. They always respond within 24 hours (and often much sooner) to any technical issues—they’ve earned my recommendation.
Vanessa is an absolute sweetheart (and talented designer to boot!). We often chuckle that we have the same name, but we have very different skillsets. Graphic design is a labor for me. I know what style I like, but actually creating that design is a chore for me. I waste way too many hours doing what a graphic designer could pull of in seconds. Vanessa has created a fabulous Opt in toolbox with a great price during Black Friday-Cyber Monday:
The Opt in Toolbox is a digital box of 30+ professionally designed Opt in Templates especially created for making beautiful PDF’s using CANVA or Indesign. The Toolbox is complete with marketing templates and video training so you can DIY your next opt in like a true pro. A $247 value but pssst… you can get it for just a $97 investment from Black Friday until Cyber Monday!
Well, what do you think of the list? Did I miss any incredible deals for Black Friday? I hope these tools can serve you well in your creative journey.
