As I’m sure your inbox has made you aware, Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday weekend is upon us. I wasn’t planning on doing any Black Friday posts this year, but I came across a few great discounts on products and services I love and use for my business so I wanted to share those great deals with you. I’ll continue to update these over the weekend as more deals are announced.

For Self-Hosted WordPress Users
MaxCDN – 25% off
MaxCDN is the industry leader in content delivery network helping to improve the performance of your site.
How does it improve site performance? When a user comes to your self-hosted WordPress site, they are redirected to your web host’s server. This server is located in a specific place, typically wherever your host is based. A Content Deliver Network (CDN) is a whole network of servers, spread throughout the world. With a CDN, when a user comes to your site they are offered a cached version of the static content (CSS files, js files, images, etc.) based on their geographic location.
MaxCDN has 25% off with three packages available.
