MDM Deals 2.6: Tech Deals and audiobooks!

Thanks to the coronavirus that has hit my city in Asia, my family has been in lockdown for the past few weeks–don’t worry, we’re safe (so far!)–but I’ve taken the extra time to update MDM Deals. Today I’m rolling out brand-new Tech Deals, support for Audiobook Deals, and updates to Book deals! Read on to learn more!

Brand new! Tech Deals!

On last month’s survey, a vast majority of you said that you’d be interested on seeing deals for tech hardware & accessories, and I am excited to let you know that they are now here! These deals will start slowly as I build out my system, and I’m still rolling this out to all channels, but in the next week you should see tech deals slowly showing up in your feeds.

Guiding principles: There are millions of tech products and accessories and dozens of stores that sell them, so Tech Deals won’t even attempt to be as exhaustive or comprehensive in its coverage as App Deals, but there are still gems I run across each day that I’ll curate for you. Tech Deals will include discounts on things like Apple hardware, cases, cables, speakers, routers, chargers, etc.–basically things that someone in the Apple ecosystem would love and use (so not Samsung computers, Google Home devices, or Amazon Echo speakers).

Here’s new ways to follow or see Tech Deals

For those of you who said you’d buy me a coffee for adding in tech deals, well, here ya go!

New: Audiobook Deals

I’m excited to say that I will now be curating audiobook deals on the Apple Bookstore! This will automatically start showing up in your feeds this week. There aren’t nearly as many deals on audiobooks as books, so these will be more rare. For ways to see the deals, see below.

Updates to BookDeals!

BookDeals, announced in 2.5, are off to a great start, including one of my all-time favorite books. I’m still making tweaks to optimize, but BookDeals are now rolled out to all platforms. I’d love your feedback on how I can make BookDeals better!

Here’s some news for you:

As always, my goal is to serve you, helping you discover awesome apps, books, and gear and save money in the process. If I have served you, I’d love your support to keep this site up and running. You can do that one-time through Buy Me a Coffee or on an ongoing basis through Patreon. Both are awesome.

MDM Deals 2.5: The biggest change yet

The survey results are and I’ve been hard at work changing things in light of the results. Today I’m excited to announce the most significant change to MDM Deals to date–a change so big, in fact, that even the tagline of the website has changed. Ready? Drumroll please…

MDM Deals: Discover great deals on fantastic apps and books

Yup, that’s right: movies are gone and books are here. Read on to learn about 3 big changes to MDM Deals:

Bye bye movies

The survey results made abundantly clear that you weren’t so interested in movies. In fact, 80% of you said that you’d be happier without movies, so they’re gone. For the 5% of you who said you’d buy me a coffee for removing books, well…here ya go:

Buy Me a Coffee!

Hello, books

A significant majority of you said that you’d be interested in deals on ebooks–and so I’m excited to start curating ebooks this week! Ebooks will appear tonight on MDMDeals.com and I’ll be rolling them out to all 20+ channels over the course of the week. As always, I’ll do my best as I do to provide filtering options so you can ignore ebook deals if you like. Four other things to note as we get going:

eBook Store

I’ll be starting with Apple Books as they’re easiest for me to integrate in my system, but I’d love your feedback on where you buy your books.

Price

I picked the arbitrary price point of $7.99 to begin curation. There may be occasions where I list books on sale for more than $7.99, but most will be $7.99 or less. I’d love your feedback on if that’s the right price point.

Curation

While there’s only a few million apps on the App Store, there are hundreds of millions of books. That makes deal curation all the more important, it also means my ebook curation will reflect my interests more than my app curation does. For example:

  • I have no interest or expertise in Romance novels, so you’ll never see those
  • I love history and biographies, and because my history interests are more about US and China, you’ll see more of that

I’ll do my absolute best to curate to a general audience, so your feedback is super helpful, but you’ll definitely see my interests and personality reflected in ebook curation–for good and bad :-).

Book genres

My present plan is to curate ebooks in the following genres. In alphabetical order:

  • Biography & memoir
  • Business & personal finance
  • Fiction (more rare, mostly best sellers & classics)
  • History
  • Lifestyle & home (more rare, but Marie Kondo deserves to be curated)
  • Mystery & thrillers (more rare, but Tom Clancy deserves appearances)
  • Non-fiction
  • Parenting (more rare)
  • Professional & technical (more rare)
  • Reference
  • Religion & spirituality (more rare)
  • Sci-Fi & fantasy
  • Science & nature

At present, I intend to NOT curate the following genres:

  • Cookbooks
  • Fiction (apart from best-selling or classic works)
  • Graphic novels
  • Health, body, & mind
  • Politics*
  • Romance
  • Sports & recreation
  • Travel & adventure
  • Wine & food

*I’m interested in politics, but I don’t want to politicize MDM Deals by curating to my interests, nor will I attempt to keep choices “well-balanced,” so I’ll just ignore the category. I will, however, curate biographies of political leaders across the spectrum because we can all learn from the lives of people like Reagan, Clinton, Bush, & Obama.

See what I mean that this is way more personal than apps are? At the risk of being repetitive, I’d love your feedback on what genres interest you.

2020 priorities

I really appreciate your feedback on the survey; it has been most helpful identifying ways that MDM Deals can do better going forward. As I have time to grow MDM Deals, here’s my initial priorities for 2020:

  • Develop ebooks into a full-fledged part of MDM Deals
  • The launch of something I’m calling Dealworthies, which I can’t wait to tell you about.
  • Adding paid custom price drop alerts so you can choose to be alerted when a specific item goes on sale

As always, your support of the site is very much appreciated! I run this all in my spare time and give up significant time each day to find and publish the deals for you. If you appreciate what I do, would you buy me a coffee or join my Patreon?

Buy Me a Coffee!

Thanks!
