Yes Black Friday and cyber Monday is not only about deals or coupon codes for people in the online website/ blogging/internet marketing and SEO consultation industry, but the deals are getting more widespread with most businesses getting in on the bandwagon and offering mazing deals just for this short period. It’s more an US thing really, but there is no reason why we aussies cant partake of this great deals they offer during this period
Increasingly to our benefit the deals which were once only available for these two days, now many providers are actually starting their deals earlier and in many cases extending it throughout the period right up to cyber monday and beyond. With his deals you don’t need a coupon codes.
2013 Black Friday Cyber Monday Deals
Normally as this is mainly a two day deal frenzy, you can grab deals sometimes upto 50% off or then get bundled deals providing value up to 2 to 5 times the benefit of a regular deal. Below I am listing some black Friday and cyber Monday deals for mainly web and internet professionals and will also include some links to other big retails companies where you can grab some other stuff cheap.
These promotions are available over the Blackfriday/ Cybermonday weekend only and may not be extended.
You can click on my affiliate links to grab the offers from which I will also benefit. Last year I got some amazing deals from many online internet services providers like WPZOOM WordPress themes ( got 335 off in 2012), Go daddy domains (got heaps of cheap domains) , Elegant themes ($39 for 76 wordpress themes including any newly released ones) Bluehost web hosting deals , Hostgator (got 50 % off on web hosting in 2012) for me and my clients.
It’s a good idea to get the deals now while the offers are on, rather than when the prices are back to normal and you are likely to be paying double the price. The biggest discounts for Australians and bloggers like me on Black Friday are things like software, wordpress themes and web hosting, you can lock in savings from anywhere between 50% to 75%.

2013 WordPress themes for blogs
If you got a domain and webhosting you are pretty much done to get a website up and running, but quite likely you will be stuck with some boring themes available for free from word press or then themes that are sometimes not updated that regularly which are available for “free from wordpress”
You are better off buying a theme membership package, where you will get access to more than 20 to 50+ themes depending on provider and get various different themes to suit your website for eg , shop theme , new website theme , deals website theme , Photography blog theme etc
With these Membership packages it’s either a monthly fee or a lump sum yearly fee and you get support if you run into any trouble with themes and themes are also updated to be in line with the regulator word press updates that happen. You don’t want a theme that is not regularly updated and let hackers into your website.
I am a member of all these themes below and I have used all of them on my different websites
This has been one of my all time favourites in word press theme providers for 3 reasons.
- The most amazing prize for a quality theme provider – $39 for 86 themes
- Different types of themes, shop theme , portfolio theme, news theme they got it all
- Small them file sizes in spite of the top quality means super fast theme loading times
They don’t need to provide a discount code because its a everyday discount at elegant themes. Get it here
WP Zoom themes – They got a nice set of professional news and magazine themes in addition to blog and portfolio themes which are designed different from the elegant themes look – I’ve purchased the$9/mo -$199 SIGN-UP FEE membership option, but there are other –See pricing options
Solostream themes wordpress themes
My this blog uses the solostream clear template – Truly SEO optimised and nicely structured blog. This word press theme compares to ( other theme providers like thesis and studio press which are $75 to 200 range ). Its a premium blog theme with excellent AdSense advertising options inbuilt which you can use for affiliate/advertising links as well which is not available inbuilt in some other premium themes.
Theme forest word press themes
You can grab great wordpress themes from as low as $3 from themeforest or the envato marketplace for themes ( clickhere ) and you can also access their vast collection of wordpress plugins over here . Currently no deals available
