It’s Thanksgiving time again in the US, and the tradition of holding products sales is now also a thing in UK shops. A few years ago, none of us here had heard of Black Friday.
But as bloggers, we are used to buying digital products at this time of year at discounted prices. I’ve rounded up the ones I thought were the best, on this page. I use everything mentioned here.
WordPress Hosting With WP Engine
This is the WordPress hosting I use. I believe it is the best there is if you want to maximise excellent performance, outstanding support and hassle-free blog ownership, it’s the best I’ve ever found.
WP Engine also includes the Genesis framework and over 35 Genesis child themes with each hosting account.
Further,if and read this blog you won’t have to worry about hackers and you’ll get plenty of tips to use Genesis to build your blog.
There are so many advantages to hosting with WP Engine, and if you buy over Cyber weekend 2018, you’ll get a total of 5 and half months off the price you pay for your first year of hosting.
Offer is valid from 22nd November 2018 to the 26th November 2018.WP Engine – 45% Off
Extender Pro Plugin
This is a plugin by CobaltApps, and if you use my method of site building, you’ll find it extremely useful. It allows you to add CSS and make PHP edits while keeping your changes all separate from the theme’s CSS and PHP.
Build your WordPress sites using Genesis or some other simple theme, and make these changes via the Extender Pro plugin. I’ll make sure there are plenty of examples of how I used it, on this site.
There is a lifetime option or you can pay yearly. Certainly now is a great time to get Extender as you benefit from the Cyber Weekend Discount.

I’ve been using Envato’s products for years. Their graphics related products are very reasonably priced.
If you need a good logo, it’s a great place to either get inspiration for a unique logo, or buy one off the shelf for probably the best pricing available for quality, pre-made logos.
They also have loads of video clips, Photoshop actions and more.
Offer is valid only on Cyber Monday – which is 26th November.Envato – 50% Off
A super easy to use keyword research tool with a gorgeous interface. If you’ve been waiting to find something affordable but also effective, this is a great time to buy as you get 30% off the normal price for life.
KWfinder has lots of other features, including keyword rank tracking, backlink monitoring and website profiling. Keyword rank tracking is just what you need to monitor your progress as a blogger.
Offer is valid from Thursday 22 November 22, 2018 to November 27, 2018KWFinder – 30% Off
WP Rocket Plugin
This is hands down the best performance plugin for WordPress. I host on WP Engine, and that has so much speed built into it that a typical caching plugin is not required. However WP Rocket has amazing capabilities and you will get even faster results when used on sites hosted at WP Engine or elsewhere.

This is hands down, my favourite keyword research tool. It cannot be beaten for speed of research.
I also use KWFinder (see above) as it has other functions apart from keyword research.
But nothing comes close to the what the amazing SECockpit can do in terms of quickly finding good keywords. It works like no other keyword tool to reveal the best keywords in the shortest possible time. For more information please read my full SECockpit review.
