Affiliate disclosure for Mike & Laura Travel

Black Friday is just around the corner, and you know what that means: it’s time to snag some incredible deals for your blogging business.

So, I’ve put together a roundup of the best Black Friday deals tailored explicitly for travel bloggers. From top-notch courses to essential hosting services, let’s dive into these offers that are too good to pass up.

Black Friday Deals For Travel Bloggers

Courses & Digital Products

There’s no better way to invest in your business than learning from others who have done it before you.

When I started as a blogger in 2014, I refused to invest in any courses because I thought I could figure it out by myself. I mean, other people had done it… why couldn’t I?

Womp, womp..

5 years later and I was still struggling to make any money from my website. Heck, I couldn’t even get anyone to read my blog posts besides my grandma, who did so out of guilt 😂

But here’s the deal. As soon as I started to treat my business like a business, things changed QUICKLY. It took me four years to go from making $2,300 per month from VIPKID to $65,000+ per month from various sources of income.

And the biggest lesson I learned from it all… invest in your business early (and write it off on your taxes 😉).

Here are our favorite courses and digital product offerings for bloggers this Black Friday:

1. Travel Blogging Summit 2024: VIP Access (Early Bird Discount Ending)

2. Sponsored Bootcamp by Dani The Explorer

Want to diversify your income for 2024? With the “Helpful” Content Update of 2023, we must establish various ways to earn money from our blogs.

And what better way to diversify your income than through sponsorships?

One of my best friends, Dani the Explorer, has seen immense success (I’m talkin’ replace-your-9-to-5-income-and-then-some-success) by pitching her services to brands in the travel and outdoor space.

But the best part? Dani is a fantastic teacher, and she has helped hundreds of students do the same (seriously, go look at her testimonials 🤯) through her program, Sponsored Bootcamp.

Dani is running a Black Friday deal right now, and it’s the biggest deal she’s running all year. Check out all the details on her website here: Sponsored Bootcamp by Dani The Explorer

Her deal starts on November 20th and runs through November 27th, so mark your calendars!

3. Web Story Masterclass by Chantelle Kincy

In March 2023, a couple of blogging friends and I hosted a retreat in Merida for those looking to grow their websites into money-making businesses.

At this retreat, I met a friend who opened up an entirely new world for me. The world of Google Web Stories.

What the heck are Google Web Stories?

I like to think of them as a combination of Pinterest pins and TikTok reels (except without the funny dances). Basically, you create a quick slideshow to represent each blog post you write. When you submit it to Google, they show these stories to people in Google Discover.

For us, Google Web Stories have accounted for a huge boost in traffic. Traffic that I was leaving on the table for who knows how long.

>> You can check out my web stories here for examples! (click on each story to view)

Chantelle is a wizard when it comes to web stories and she has since created a course to teach others how to find success through web stories, too.

Her course will increase in price next week (Thanksgiving week), so make sure to grab her course now at the lowest price:


Hosting

Thinking of starting a new niche website? Or maybe you’re looking to upgrade your current hosting to something a bit faster?

There are so many hosting platforms out there, but the truth is.. the majority of them.. well… suck!

Luckily, there are standout performers in this space, and we want to highlight them and their awesome Black Friday deals below:

4. Lyrical Host

Lyrical Host is once again participating in Black Friday, and they have some incredible deals up their sleeves. As one of the best hosting providers with impeccable customer service, we highly suggest Lyrical Host.

Lyrical Host’s Black Friday deals span from 15% off hosting plans to added resource bundles, and more.

You can check out all the goodies here: Lyrical Host Black Friday 2023

Note: You can also use code SYTB for a 10% discount, although I don’t think you can use the Black Friday deal AND our deal at the same time.


5. A2 Hosting

One of our personal favorite hosting platforms is A2. It is perfect for beginners, it’s low-cost, and their support is very helpful. All of our baby sites (under 50,000 sessions) are hosted with A2, so we know they have a quality platform.

A2 is participating in Black Friday this year, and you can save up to 85% on plans! This is a phenomenal deal, but you’ll need to jump on it quick!

Affiliate Marketing Tools & Networks

As bloggers, affiliate marketing is one of the most critical aspects of our business. We recommend products and services we use and love ourselves and our readers feel secure knowing we’ve tested out these products and services first.

Most affiliate networks do not participate in Black Friday, but there is one standout network that is hosting a Black Friday deal:

6. TravelPayouts

TravelPayouts has so many Black Friday deals up their sleeve that it’s a bit overwhelming. But hey, I’d rather be overwhelmed than underwhelmed, right?

Check out a few of the deals they have going right now for top brands like Booking.com and Get Your Guide:

You can find more deals and details by going to their website and signing up for an account here: TravelPayouts


Email Marketing Tools

I can say it until my face turns blue, but email marketing is IMPORTANT! If you don’t want to be at the mercy of Google forever, you must pay attention to your email list. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

So, if you’ve been sitting on your hands when it comes to email marketing, this is your sign to jump in head first and grow your list.

7. Convertkit

We currently recommend Convertkit as an email marketing platform. They have a fantastic free plan here, but you can also save some money this holiday season and invest in their entire collection of email marketing tools (and trust me, in the long run, you’ll want this deal).

Convertkit is participating in Black Friday again this year, and you can find all of their great deals (like 30% off a Creator annual plan) on their website here!

Their Black Friday deals end November 27th!
