1 - I decide *before* I see the offers how much I’m willing to spend.
2 - I look out for deals on services, software or products I’d be using anyway.
3 - I always do a quick Google for reviews on the product before I buy, and check how much it’s usually priced.
4 - I have a small ‘take a punt’ fund for things I’ve been curious about or wanting to try out - this is a small fund, and I am fully prepared for that money to be ‘wasted’ - taking a punt is for fun, not investment, and I’m careful not to confuse the two.
5 - I check for any recurring fees - for example the Siteground Hosting deal for Black Friday is usually a whopping 70% off - but the next year you renew at full price - which is a painful jump. For me, it was still worth it as they have saved my bacon multiple times - but look out for future expenses like this.
Here are the deals….

👩⚖️👩⚖️👩⚖️ Suzanne Dibble’s once-a-year only offer for the Small Business Law Academy is now live. Get 79% off her huge library of training and resources related to all things legal. I renew every year, and probably only consult it once a year - but I know it would cost me plenty of time and money trying to hunt down that info anywhere else.
It’s £147 plus VAT for 6 months access, then you can renew for £97 plus VAT for 12-months access: https://jz993.isrefer.com/go/SBLABF19/Worditude/
📧📧📧 I’ve just upgraded my Wisestamp email signature from FREE to a pro account because it’s only half price ($36 for the year) - but the FREE version is so good, you don’t really need to go premium (I just did to say thanks) - https://www.wisestamp.com/
💰💰💰 17 hats is the client management and invoicing software I’ve used for the last 4 years - they’ve got big savings if you’re prepared to commit to 2 years minimum with them - https://www.17hats.com/card/gzrrgrkkpk
🧞♀️🧞♀️🧞♀️ Who wants to add income streams to their business AND/OR be a Convertkit wizard? Elizabeth Buckley-Goddard - offers Converkit training and support AND training to help you grow your business. I bought The Guides bundle last year (maybe the year before) and think it’s amazingly good value.

👩🏫👩🏫👩🏫 Thinkific - where I host the Copywriting Toolkit and my membership - is offering 7 months for the price of 5 plus other goodies - worth investigating if you have course/membership materials ready to start selling, and you’re already leaning towards them. Definitely not a decision you want to rush for the sake of saving $200 though:

Teachable - also a platform for courses and memberships, are offering savings when you commit to one of their premium plans for a year: Teachable Deals
💻💻💻 I’ve been with 4 different hosting companies, but Siteground is now my forever home. Read their sales pages for the official reasons why they’re great - but basically, any problems I’ve ever had have always been 100% my fault - and their chat support still helped me fix them, usually within minutes. I joined during their epic Black Friday offering. Now every year I have to renew at full price which is a bit hurty (compared to the very cheap BF rate) buuuuut worth every penny.
The deal won’t go live until tomorow (29th), but when it is up, you’ll find it here: https://www.siteground.co.uk/index.htm?afcode=c92649089ba45854a09fa7ba4615f388
…and it’s there until the end of Cyber Monday.
