My thanks to the following individuals for their support of MDM Deals:
- The Patrons and sponsors who keep the lights on here!
- MDM Deals’ ability to post on Mastodon is courtesy of the awesome Matt Birchler – developer, podcaster, YouTuber, and a great person and friend.
- The gorgeous logo and background image you see was developed by Max Design. Max did excellent work at a reasonable price and I’d recommend him to you.
- I’ve appreciated help on the business side of things from Karsten & Nikita Engelbricht of Hoolatron Studios as well as Zach Cichy of The Menu Bar.
- Beta testers, including Jon F., Matt B., Daryl B., and others who hide behind internet aliases so I don’t know their names. Thanks for your feedback.
- My wife and kids, who have allowed me to spend WAY too much time on the site, including time every evening posting deals.

Deals I curate are formatted, generated, and propagated to all MDM Deals channels using an immensely complex Shortcut–thanks to the Workflow (now Apple) team behind that, because MDM Deals wouldn’t be possible without it. Likewise, MDM Deals propagate via dozens of IFTTT applets and Zapier actions, as well as Buffer. Thanks to those groups.
The MDM Deals website runs on WordPress’ business plan (recommended!) and utilizes the following plugins:
- Jetpack – excellent all-around plugin for stats, spam protection, security certificates, RSS feeds, and more
- Redirection – the best, free, URL redirector of when I mess up my posts and slugs
- Install Headers and Footers by WPBeginner – simple, easy, free, code-free way to add necessary code into your site’s header and footer
- Publish to Apple News – Dead-simple plugin for publishing from WordPress to Apple News. Highly recommend.
- Patreon Connect – This, at present, doesn’t do much except to make easy linkage between the MDM Deals Patron page and website. It may do more in the future 😀
