We don't normally do Black Friday posts.
We figure most people are getting enough information in their inbox at this time of year and are overwhelmed with shopping advice.
But we have had so many amazing deals come through to help aspiring bloggers that there was no way we could let Black Friday go by without sharing these deals.
If you want to up your game and make 2019 your year of the Digital Nomad, take advantage of these deals below.
All Inclusive Blogging Courses
Run by one of the most popular travel bloggers our there, Nomadic Matt, this course is structured a little differently in that you can purchase each "module" separately if you want.
For example, if you feel you have a great grasp on photography but want to up your writing chops you can choose what fits best for you.
He offers 4 different modules:
- The Business of Travel Blogging: $99
- How to Become a Travel Writer: $199
- How to Become a Travel Photographer: $49
- How to Become a Travel Filmmaker: $149
All of them are well-structured courses but I feel the one that is most beneficial is the Business of Travel Blogging. They all offer support, a Facebook Group and Case Studies.
This course really helped me up my photography game. It is more of an intermediate course so you have to have some working knowledge of Lightroom and Photoshop to really get the most out of it.
The lessons get more in-depth as the course goes on but you can really learn a lot here.
Also, the production value and the ease of teaching really shines here.
Hats off to the guys at F-Stoppers and Elia for putting together such a comprehensive course for photographers.
For Black Friday they are offering $50 off of all their bundle's courses.
A sweet deal as these doesn't go on sale very often.
If you are looking to learn photography, Lightroom or Photoshop from the ground up then CreativeLive is a great place to start.
What I love about this platform is the Live Classes and they are FREE! It is free to sign up for an account and you can tune into live classes to see if the teachings are what you are looking for.
Then, if you like them, you can download and own them for a fee. Genius if you ask me.
They also cover a wide range of topics, not just photography and have some awesome instructors.
CreativeLive Black Friday Deal is 50% Off all of their classes!

For Black Friday they are offering
So many people ask us where we host our photos. Well, the answer is Smugmug.
Not only does it allow you to set up a gallery that you can seamlessly integrate into your blog, but it is a great storage solution and it takes the load off of your server helping you increase the speed of your site.
If you are into selling some of your photography you can opt for the pro plan which offers a range of extras on top of the amazing things you already get with the basic plan.
SmugMug is offering 40% Off all their plans during Black Friday week for new customers.
Email Marketing is one of the cornerstones of a great blog.
And one of the things that we wish we did early on was to adopt a service that would see us through all our growth. Believe me when I say changing providers can be a pain in the butt.
You don't have to worry about that with ConvertKit. It grows with you and offers some incredible organization tools. This is by far the best change we have made over the past couple of years.
It is also one of the most intuitive platforms out there making it easy to learn and create.
Check out their Cyber Monday Deals where you will get access to the Creator Starter Kit to help you make the most of your Email List!
This is probably one of the best courses I have ever taken when it comes to learning how to make money from your travel blog.
Not only does it go through everything that will help you apply, set-up and track your affiliates it also goes in-depth on strategies you can implement to increase your sales.
Michelle makes over $50K per month through affiliates so she knows what she is talking about.
It is worth every penny if you want to learn about monetizing through affiliates.
Save $28 off the course which will bring the total to only $168!
We have used OUR KnowRoaming Global Sim for well over a year now and love it.
It is perfect for any blogger who wants to make sure they stay connected all the time.
It is a sticker that goes on your existing SIM card and activated automatically when you arrive at a destination that is not your home.
They offer unlimited packages for $7.99 a day in a ton of countries as well. It is all controlled through an app on your phone.
The beauty of this for bloggers is that even if you want to get a local SIM card for extended travel you could keep this on and then you can have data and SMS capabilities as soon as you land.
I know it has saved us a ton of hassle whenever we get to a destination.
For Black Friday and Cyber Monday, they are offering 30% OFF THEIR BUNDLES
Well that should do it. Some of the best deals for bloggers out there for this special weekend. We hope everyone takes advantage of these amazing discounts and they can help you bring your blogging to the next level for 2018.
