I’ve got an entrepreneur focused deal on Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals today. The deal is for Udemy.com, a website that has online courses on a variety of interesting topics. When Udemy came to me, they were interested in offering a deal on one of their $99 courses that was pertinent to startups. After some negotiation, we decided to do an offer where you get their five top startup courses, priced at a total of over $400, for only $59.
The courses that you get in this Amazing Deal are Raising Capital for Startups, Attracting, Hiring, and Retaining the Best People, Writing a Business Plan, “Startup and Go”: The first steps to building a technology company, and Social Marketing for Startups. Each course has multiple classes (usually around 45 minutes) taught by people like Phil Libin, Aaron Patzer, Dave McClure, Naval Ravikant, Russ Fradin, and Auren Hoffman.
Once you make your purchase, you can use your voucher code multiple times on Udemy, once for each course. If your are looking for a heavy dose of this information in on place, take a look.
It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another Brad Feld’s Amazing Deal. I can’t help myself – it feels so satisfying to be a deal huckster.
This week’s deal is for one year of web hosting from Cloud Jolt. Cloud Jolt is a hosting company focused on the tech entrepreneur. If you are in the market for a new host, thinking of starting a web company, or need to expand your blog, you should give these guys a try. $39 gives you a year of hosting, which saves you $60 bucks (it’s normally $96). That’s a little over $3 a month for the first year. Pretty hard to beat.
My latest foray into the Daily Deal universe is up – and it’s a 50% offer on Manpacks.
If you are a guy and aren’t familiar with Manpacks, it’s an easy way to get essentials (undies, socks, razors) mailed to you every few months. Why spend time shopping for undies and socks when you can climb mountains, slay dragons, and conquer the world?
If you area a girl and are tired of your guy wearing tired, worn out undies, a Manpack makes a perfect gift.
I continue to enjoy my alter ego Brad Salesy (kind of like Slim Shady) as I better try to understand how Daily Deals actually work.
The latest Brad Feld Amazing Deal is online.
A few weeks ago I was approached by Sympoz, a company in Boulder that is excited about building online classrooms where anyone can take a courses in categories like Wine, Personal Finance, Cooking, etc. The have a nice looking site, and their classes are self serve, at your own pace, in HD. They have forums where you can interact with fellow classmates and teachers. Classes range in price from $39 to $99.
They asked me what I thought, and I told them I thought they should offer up some classes on my Brad Feld’s Amazing Deal Store. They agreed to give my readers a great deal. $19 for any class that in their inventory. And, I’m putting my money where my mouth is – I just bought (using my Amazing Deal site) the Wine Demystified course.
If you have a love of learning, or are looking for an interesting gift, give Sympoz a try by purchasing this deal. You could become an wine expert for less than the cost of a decent bottle.
I’ve been having a blast with Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals which was created by Deal Co-op, a recent graduate of the TechStars Seattle program. Last week’s deal – the Agloves – ended up getting picked up on Lifehacker and the limit of 500 gloves were sold (at 50% off) overnight! As part of the experience, I’m learning a lot about the Daily Deal business, how it works, what the actual economics are, and what the friction points are.
The latest Brad Feld’s Amazing Deal is now online. We’ve got a great one this week. You can purchase a $70 voucher for use on the Trek Light Gear website for $39. Trek Light has lots of great stuff, including some of the nicest hammocks you’ll ever see. We priced this deal to allow you to purchase their best selling Double Hammock, but you can also use it on other gear.
If you are interested in running a deal on the Brad Feld store, helping bring great deals to readers of this blog while helping me better understand the Daily Deal marketplace dynamics, let me know. I’m looking for deals that can be bought online and shipped nationally and that appeal to a high tech audience.
