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 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:

Deal: 40% off 1st 4 months (pro/plus plans) code: BLACKFRIDAY2021
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 $300 off.
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: Up to 60% off.
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: 25% off everything
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
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: 73% off shared hosting plans
Teachable. If hosting programs or membership on your own site isn’t something you’re up for, I highly recommend Teachable. It’s an all-in-one platform that’s super user-friendly. Just add your logo, pick your colors, upload your content and you’re ready to start raking in sales. It includes the payment system and a built-in affiliate program (depending on what level you use) so if simplicity is your goal this will make you happy. (I also talked about this here.)
Deal: up to 58% off.
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
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 decided which of your services/products to buy. (Fun fact: DHQ Society member Samantha Scruggs teaches health professionals how to run quizzes in her course!) You can use it for free, but if you upgrade to a paid plan, you can integrate it with your email and collect leads + results (which is a no-brainer upgrade!)
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.
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!
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.
