It's not your typical Black Friday Walmart type deal here and this isn't your typical Candid Writer post. The bloggers Black Friday University is about learning anything you want and everything you want when it comes to blogging through this Black Friday portal that never closes. So with that said and I will reiterate this at the close of this post, that if you want to learn about blogging, SEO, link building or anything remotely related to blogging, any activation link you click in this post will connect you to the information you're looking for at Black Friday prices and sometimes even free. So while this might sound like a meager sales pitch, this is a gold mine that in some cases there's a soft cost, in many cases nearly free and in other instances is truly free.. hence why this is called Black Friday University.. unmatched access at Black Friday prices.
What I love about Black Friday are all the deals. Whether you're shopping at Walmart, Target, Kohls, Home Depot, Gamestop, Best Buy or KMart.. yes even the Big K is still around, we're talking about great ads, deals and sales that you aren't going to find at any other point in the shopping and selling season. However, as I thought about doing this post, I thought.. well why does it always have to be about the mainstream retail stores. Why can't it be about other things that are just as practical.. like learning.. After all we are heading into a new year, "every" time there's a Black Friday, you're that much closer to closing one door.. that being the current year and opening a new door.. that being the NEW YEAR and we're not that far away. So why not right ?
So with that said, Black Friday University on this blog is about connecting you with information to learn how to blog, to learn how to do search engine optimization, to learn how to do link building, to learn how to do blogger outreach, guest posting, acquire more traffic to your blog or learn to do social media more successfully.. Truly it's about connecting you with information on any topic that's related to blogging as cheaply as one can get anything on Black Friday and that's what makes Black Friday University so darn cool.
The marketplace for Black Friday University is Udemy and I have referenced this marketplace in another post as well. With that said, here's a preview.. a look inside what it looks like once you've logged in.
Black Friday University Udemy Preview
As you can see from the preview there are different types of courses that you can browse but of course we're going to focus on blogging. As you may have noticed.. you didn't see anything on blogging and that's because you'll have to perform a keyword search for it along with any other classes related to blogging too. So even though you see an abbreviated list of categories of courses that are available as seen in the image above in the left hand pane, I will list for you the complete list in the following:
- Office Productivity
- Personal Development
- Health & Fitness
- Teacher Training
- Test Prep
With that said, here are some ideas for classes that are strictly related to blogging and aspects of blogging or owning a blog. Once you log in you will see the "browse courses" search for courses prompt as seen below in the image. Once you've reached this area, it's as simple as typing in your search. A list of related search terms will be provided for you.
Here are those search terms and additionally, you can click on any of the following to enter the portal in order to complete your search as well:
- Link Building
- Website Traffic
- Google Trends
- Search Engine Ranking
- Website Optimization
- Content Generation
Now if it wasn't already all that obvious as to why you'd be typing in these keyword phrases, lets talk about this a bit more and explore a small sample of these. Let's start with the first one:
The reason why you would type this is in is because Udemy is going to list related classes that pertain to blogging. It's going to bring back classes such as Blogging To Freedom, Blogging Masterclass and Beginner to Pro In Blogging. The cost of the classes are going to range anywhere from $0 to in excess of hundreds of dollars, but those are their "retail prices". Crazy right ?
There's no sense in paying those retail prices for such great information and that's where Black Friday University comes into play. By clicking on any deal activation link, you will get your courses for anywhere from $10 to $20 dollars and other huge discounts no matter how expensive the class you're looking at is. That's Black Friday University for you all year round.
Now while I digressed a bit in the last section to talk about pricing in Black Friday University, lets get back to our search queries. The next section we're going to talk about is Link Building.
This is a good one because a lot of people struggle with link building. A sample of the classes that will populate are: How to build back links to dominate Google, Do follow backlinks: SEO link building hacks for Beginners and Street Basics Power Guide To SEO. If there's one thing that separates the winners and losers in link building.. it would have to be information. Information is the great equalizer and those who have it are armed with the strategies to move forward and those that don't, struggle to move ahead and meaningfully compete with the competition.
This is the most widely use CMS used across the internet by beginners, intermediate and advanced players in the website game. However, with that said, there's a lot to know about Wordpress too. That's where Black Friday University can make your life a lot easier. As I mentioned in the last section that information is the great equalizer and there's a lot to be said about Wordpress. There's a ton of information out there that can define your success using this platform. A small sample of the titles that you will have access to include: Ultimate Wordpress Plugin Course, How To Make A Website / Start A Blog w/Wordpress in 2 hours, Build Your Own Pro Quality Wordpress Website and From Novice To Ninja: The Complete Wordpress Training Course. Courses like this reduce the learning curve and move you to success faster just by simply getting access to information that you don't already have access to and for the price of a couple of trips to McDonald's, learning from the insight of others can change everything about your efforts to blog online.
A great topic to explore through the Black Friday University portal to Udemy. Like link building, this is yet another area where many people struggle... getting more website traffic to your blog or website. Not only do you want to learn how to blog, but having a blog isn't enough. If you build a blog and no one comes to visit, then let's be honest, what's the point ? We all want people to interact with us on a blog and weigh in on what we're writing about and when you build your own the goal will likely be the same. Performing a search for website traffic will yield samples of courses such as: Tumblr Traffic: Quality & Targeted Traffic To Your Website, Online Traffic Domination - The 9 Steps Success Blueprint and Lazy Man's Secrets To Free Website Generation.
With that said, that's the purpose of Black Friday University.. "equalizing the balance of access to information" all in aims to help you realize success through blogging or through any other topic that is of interest to you.
A course such as the Blogging Crash Course currently at $9 with 13 lectures gives you access to information that you would have to scour the net and investigate on your own costing you time.. the one commodity that you can't get back when quality information is located here through the Black Friday University portal.
As mentioned before.. the goal is to equalize the balance of information at Black Friday prices and classes like this do just that. While this post is focused on bloggers, it doesn't matter what your focus of interest is, the goal remains the same at the Black Friday University. Learn anything you want with Black Friday prices through this portal.
