Must have Black Friday software deals for WordPress website developers

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (for web developers)!

Black Friday is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to nab a bargain and stock up on software.

All of these products I use and love in my business, so they’ve been thoroughly tested and vetted for your implementation pleasure.

If you’re looking to make passive income through hosting and streamline your development process Cloudways are the number 1 option! They include free SSL certificates, the support is awesome, it’s blazing fast, you can choose a server location close to you, they take daily backups automatically and you can easily clone sites for speedy development! It can take a bit of getting used to if you’re used to a cPanel, but once you’ve got the hang of it the interface is much easier to use. Highly recommend!

2. elementor

The worlds leading wordpress website builder

There’s nothing that’s kickstarted my business journey like Elementor. It’s what I use, teach and recommend to every budding web dev. I recommend Elementor over other builder plugins because of the extensive features that are included with the pro upgrade. You can build an entire theme from scratch including headers, footers and pop ups. It integrates with some of the common add ons you’ll need to build a robust site, like EDM software or Adobe Typekit. It reduces the requirement for additional plugins by incorporating features and widgets like forms! The styling options are endless, and it’s the next frontier of web dev!

If you’re planning to build websites for others, I recommend heading straight for the agency plan, which will cover you for up to 1000 sites (with this sale, that’s less than 15c per website, although you’d need a few more pairs of hands to implement all the builds!). 

The deal: up to 25% off
Sale on till: Now – Nov 27
Code: No code needed – automatically applied at checkout

3. the plus addons


After over a year of building websites with Elementor, I started wanting a little more design flexibility and control – enter The Plus addons for Elementor.

There are a number of Elementor addon plugins, and I did a lot of research before deciding on The Plus. In my mind, it just had the wisdest range of features, and I love that it had an unlimited, lifetime option. If you’ve ever had an in-depth WordPress convo with me, you’ll know there’s nothing I love more than a lifetime deal! You pay once, your skillset and delivery is forever upgraded, and your clients don’t ever need to worry about additional fees or upgrades.

Some of my favourite features include; tabs and tours, carousels (and remotes), page piling and mouse cursor icons.

The deal: 30% off
Sale on: Now – Nov 27

4. logo package express

a must have for any brand designer

Not exactly for web devs, but including it anyway because the discount is outrageous (on an already low priced product) and there’s little I rave about as much or as often as this software.

It literally saves me hours with every brand export, and my clients love the logical way the files are saved, labelled and foldered. 

The deal: 40% off
Sale on: Nov 27 – Nov 30

5. appsumo deals

berrycast + scribe

TBH I was underwhelmed with the actual AppSumo Black Friday Deals, but I bought these deals about a month back and have had a chance to thoroughly test them out, and give them both a solid thumbs up!

Berrycast is an alternative to Loom, but without the monthly pricetag, while Scribe takes away all the hassle of coding email signatures and hosting brand images. 

The deal: 10% off orders of $150 or more
Sale on: These guys never give an expiration date to keep you on your toes! I recommend purchasing ASAP

Jen Wagner is the queen of scripts. She’s my go-to when building brands and I adore everything she puts out. I’ve got my eye on her font courses and her huge font bundle!

The deal: 50% off texture packs and fonts, 30% off courses, Ultimate creators bundle – get all fonts for $500 (limited to 50 sales)
Sale on: Starts Nov 27 – no end date listed

Generate Press Logo

7. generate press

The perfect lightweight theme for your next project

I use this theme on every web project I work on. It’s quick, customisable, updated regularly in line with security and functionality updates, and just generally great.

If you’ve been using a theme from themeforest / creative market, you can have trouble down the track. These types of themes are generally built by designers, not developers, and may not be kept up to date to prevent security risks. 

The deal: Save $20 on the yearly licence or $40 on the lifetime licence
Sale on: On now, no end date listed

I couldn’t run my business as efficiently without it, and it helps me run projects more smoothly, so I can work smarter not harder. They offer 2 x monthly video support calls if you’re wanting to make the most of your account!

The deal: Lock in a low rate – $30 per month instead of $35 per month or $300 per year instead of $350 per year

A green WordPress logo with the word moom.

11. moo

Business cards, stickers, marketing materials and more

I recommend Moo to all of my branding clients. Their quality is consistently high, they’re quick, and their prints are always beautiful. My favourite stock is the super-luxe (it’s gorgeously matte and thick)! I’ll be stocking up on business cards myself while the sale is on!

The logo for craco block, a WordPress Developer.

11. crocoblock

Build websites with next level features and functionality.

Crocoblock blows my mind. To start with, they have a whole extended catalogue of widgets to expand on your elementor capability, but it’s so much more than that! The dynamic capabilities, filters, search functionality, front end form submission and so much more make this plugin a must have in your toolkit. To top it all off, they offer free 30 min screen share / zooms to troubleshoot if you get stuck. Pretty generous as some of their functions are quite complex! 

The deal: up to 30% off plans
Sale on: Now – 30 Nov
