Deals + Steals for Dietitian Entrepreneurs
Man do I love a good deal. Investing in your business is necessary to move it forwards (or get up to date with current tech + programs) but I’ll admit it’s still scary. What better way to make it a little less scary than by diving in when it’s on sale!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite programs and tools I use daily in my business as a dietitian entrepreneur. I’ll update the deals and any codes needed as they’re revealed. Wooohoo!
Note: most of these are programs I currently use – I bought most of them the first time on Black Friday so I’m right there with you renewing them all this weekend. 😉 These links DO contain affiliate links, but I’m only including stuff I actually trust and highly recommend. You can read more about some of them in my business tools post or on my resources page too.
So here goes:

Take your business writing to the next level with this jam-packed course from a fellow RD and expert nutrition writer Holly Larson. Includes how to translate that peer-reviewed research into compelling blog posts, how to get eyeballs on your posts with SEO, and how to not take all. dang. day. to write one flipping blog post.
No more panic as that blank Google doc stares you down. Get ready to channel your inner writing ninja and zen-like focus and productivity.
Or check out her amazing RD Blog Club where you get first hand mentorship from Holly to write effective blog posts for your site – bringing in more clients and sales. Plus the priceless accountability of showing up and getting it done.
Practice Better. All in one EMR – complete nutrition practice management system. Of all the hundreds of RDs I’ve worked with in The Society, this platform consistently comes out as the top recommendation for managing nutrition clients with ease. This is their biggest sale of the year, so don’t miss it!
Deal: Get 40% off your first 4 months with code BF2022 (available 11/21-11/25)
Interact. Fun, easy to use software to create interactive quizzes – use them to grow your email list, a high-converting Facebook ad, or to help potential clients decide which of your services/products to buy. (Fun fact: This is my biggest lead magnet for the DHQ Society!) You can use it for free, but if you upgrade to a paid plan, you can integrate it with your email list and collect leads + results (which is a no-brainer upgrade!)
Deal: 40% off with code 22HOLIDAY (Valid now -11/28)
KeySearch. My fave way to do a deep-dive on what keywords I should use in my blog posts and on my website so I can get the most eyeballs on my stuff and rank high in those google searches! It’s a great happy medium between the limited data of free tools and the bigger more expensive options.
Deal: Save 20% off with code KSDISC
Memberpress. My fave plugin for self-hosting courses + membership sites. I LOVE the control it gives me over how I structure things. (I’ve written about this at length comparing Teachable + Memberpress – both great options depending on your needs. I’ve stuck with Memberpress after writing this and will be renewing again this year.) I use Plus.
Deal: Up to 65% off with code BF2022
AffiliateWP. A HUGE factor in my sales success has been rewarding others for sharing my programs. The goal is to make a great program that people want to share with their friends and peers anyway, but there’s nothing like offering a monetary incentive as a thank you. This plugin allows me to create my own affiliate and referral programs directly in WordPress, giving me a lot of flexibility with what the structure looks like. Plus it’s really simple to make payments.
Deal: Score up to 70% off all AffiliateWP licenses (starts Monday 11/21)
Divi (aka Elegant themes). I’ve built a LOT of websites over the past 10 years and without a doubt Divi (specifically the drag-and-drop Divi Builder) makes it the easiest to build a fluid, modern, responsive site. I originally bought it to update one site and eventually switched all of my sites over to this theme. It also includes a social sharing plugin, an email opt-in system, and an additional theme called Extra.
Deal: Up to 60% off + a free prize
EasyWebinar Webinars are an awesome way to generate sales in your business and do the marketing-heavy-lifiting for you – without you actually having to be knee deep in sales-land day in and day out. Host live webinars or set them on autopilot to watch on demand and watch the sales roll in it. It’s a great way to let your audience get to know you (and see your face!) AND show them what you know and how you teach.
Deal: 50% off pro annual plan
Siteground hosting. I switched to Siteground two years ago and immediately saw improvement in my site speed (a huge factor in SEO)! I’ve also had 0 site downtime since switching. They also include free security certificates for HTTPS (another big SEO factor and a must if you’re collecting payments on your site.) Their support has been great as well (pretty much a requirement in my book.)
Deal: 86% off hosting plans
Beat the Algorithm Tired of trying to play the Instagram game with little results? End the frustration and kick the algortihm to the curb with this course from a fellow RD.
RD2RD. Why reinvent the wheel when you can turn to other RDs instead. Grab 20% off your purchase (think protocols, client handouts, business forms, and more.)
Deal: Up to 35% off
Businessese. My fave go-to for all things legal. Their templates for things like sponsorship contracts, speaker agreements, privacy policies, likeness releases, etc. are the bomb.
(Currently closed) Freelance Writing for the RD By my colleague and RD retreat co-host Ana Reisdorf, this course is everything you need to earn fulltime revenue writing about nutrition for brands and media – learn how to get PAID to write in just 6 weeks. Learn where to find clients, how to pitch and set your prices, and more.
Stay tuned for 2023 updates
My Fave Tools for RD entrepreneurs
I also have a big list of physical products I use in this post – hopefully some of them will go on sale on Amazon this weekend!
I’ll be sharing other deals I find between now and Monday on my social channels, so be sure to check in there too. (Facebook + Instagram.)
Now time to go renew all my licenses and go a little crazy on Amazon so the rest of the holiday season can just be about enjoyment and not shopping and crazy parking lots.
