Black Friday Roundup: Savings you Won’t Want to Miss!

All of our reviews and recommendations are completely impartial but some posts may include affiliate links that can earn us a commission. Click here for full details.

Black Friday is here. The annual retail extravaganza so many of us love to hate.

If you feel the same way as me about Black Friday, you probably think that joining hectic queues of people to buy unnecessary clutter is not a fun way to spend time.

However, it’s fair to say that this IS the time of year when most companies run their best promotions.

Thanks to the savings, this is the very best time to invest in yourself, or in a new venture. 

Over the past few weeks, I’ve received dozens of secretive emails telling me about the deals coming up. I can now reveal them, and this article is a carefully curated list of those I think are the very best for the type of people who visit HomeWorkingClub.

There are genuine bargains here, and opportunities to start things, learn things and improve things.  If you’ve been wondering whether to pull the trigger on something new, now could well be the time. It’ll be another year before you can do so so cheaply.

NOTE: Expiry dates on these offers vary, but most run until the end of Cyber Monday, 2nd December 2019. Please check the price you are paying!

An Important Note for the Cynics

I know what the cynics among you are thinking:

“Ah, yes, well…there must be something in it for you, promoting these things.”

Of course there is. I am an affiliate for lots of products. Advertising and affiliate marketing is how most blogs make money.

There are hundreds of completely free articles on this site. Some, like this one on online jobs, are over 10,000 words.  Much as I love this topic and love my readers, I have to make a living from doing this.

However, as I’ve discussed in great detail, I don’t endorse things I have no belief in. Many of these products and services are things I use personally and pay full price for. For example, I’ve been a Dreamhost customer myself since 2009, so you can certainly trust that recommendation!

Similarly, I use Aweber for this very site, and have personally paid for and taken the affiliate marketing course listed here. A couple of months ago, I bought Teachable, also on this list, and am happily paying $168 per year more than it’s on offer for this weekend!

So yes, if you buy something here, I may earn some commission. Hopefully, if you’ve enjoyed and benefitted from my content, you won’t begrudge me that.

Let’s get on with the offers:

Start a New Business of your Own

Dreamhost from Only $2.59 per Month

Dreamhost Black Friday Offer

What and Why? 

If you’re thinking about starting a blog or online business, you can do so now for as little as $2.59 per month – a big saving on normal prices.

You get:

  • A free domain.
  • WordPress pre-installed.
  • Support for unlimited traffic.

Dreamhost is the web hosting company I use to host this very site, as well as several others, and I’ve been delighted with their service for over 10 years.

How Much?

From $2.59 to $4.99 per month, depending on how long you want to commit for.

If you’re in it for the long-haul, it’s worth paying as much as you can afford up front as it’s cheaper overall. However, the ability to pay just $4.99 on a month to month basis with no commitment is very good if you just want to dip a toe in the water, and much better value than normal.

Why is this a Great Deal?

Dreamhost is a trustworthy provider, and it’s easy to get a site up and running, even if you’re not too technical. There’s also a 97-day money-back guarantee, so no risk if you’re not happy with your decision.

Teachable: from $468 to $299

Teachable Offer

What and Why?

If you have knowledge and skills to share with the world, why not join the many entrepreneurs making great money from creating courses?

Teachable is one of the market-leading platforms for this. I actually recently bought it myself and am half-way through creating something of my own. You also get access to TeachableU – an extensive course that teaches you how to create and market your courses.

How Much?

It usually costs $468 to subscribe to Teachable’s “Basic” plan for one year, but this Black Friday it costs just $299.

Why is this a Great Deal?

The package of Teachable and Teachable U both shows you how to make money from courses, and gives you the tools to create them. The cost is a drop in the ocean compared to what you can make from selling a good course, and this is a seriously substantial saving on the regular price.

This course is a significant investment, but it lays everything out in manageable stages. If you wish you could have a blog but keep being put off by the complexity, now could be the time to get started.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Black Friday
What and Why?

Why is this a Great Deal?

This course isn’t especially cheap and it’s rarely discounted, so it’s well worth grabbing at a discounted price while you can. There’s been a flash sale recently too, so I suspect it will be quite a while before the next promotion.
