I decided to take a page out of Oprah's book (Oprah's Annual Favorite Things listing) and go through all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that I've gotten and publish the best of those on this page. Some of these will be good only through midnight, Friday, November 24. Others will be available all weekend through Monday, November 27, The specials I'm featuring are primarily marketing software/tools. Enjoy!
Note: Most of the deals are listed using my affiliate links, which means I make a commission from each product sold from this page. However, you have the "Donna Guarantee" with every purchase, because I only write about those things with which I have experience and/or use myself.

Thrive Themes doesn't run any sales. However, they are donating 50% of all purchases made on Black Friday to Kiva.
