Last week we published a post talking about how Amazon affiliates can benefit from Prime Day. It was well received, and we’re sure a lot of affiliates will get a nice income boost from it.
But then we got thinking..
What about the other side of the coin? Are there any deals that you guys would love to know about?
So we put our heads together and came up with a few of the best productivity gadgets that are available on Amazon, and included in the Prime Day deals.
Productivity is a huge part of my day, so I’m sure it is important to you too!
Some of the items below are excellent and we’ve used them for years, and others are more “fun selections”.
Feel free to share some others in the comments!
Great Productivity Tools And Planners
Daily Productivity Planner
I’m a big fan of notepads and productivity planners. I have found that some in the past actually overcomplicate things, and you spend so much time figuring out your system and planning everything, you don’t actually get anything done.
I’m pretty fussy about notepads. They need to have the right spine, the right texture, and the be the right size.
I’ve walked out of office stores in disgust before because they have such a poor selection!
This particular planner is great though. It’s got a balance between helpful sections for organization, and the ability to be flexible.
HPD was pretty much built on notepads, I’ve gone through dozens in the past few years. I never understand how people can make notes on their laptops, but that’s just me I guess.
Best Self Planner
I don’t think this one is for everyone, because it takes some getting used to, but it is a fantastic planner. What I love about it, (I’ve been using one since November 2016), is that it helps you work towards a bigger picture.
The whole planner is set up for 13 weeks, or a quarter of a year, but it doesn’t come with dates, so you can work on it as you wish.
It’s split into days and weeks, with the days split into 30 minute sections.
The downside is that it does take a bit of getting used to, but once you’re in the swing of things, having your day well structured but with room for flexibility is great.
The Miracle Cube Timer
I’ve not used this one myself, but it came highly recommended by some HPD team members, and it looks really good fun, so I’ll probably be ordering a few as gifts for people as well.
When you really NEED to get something done in a timely fashion, this digital timer is good for holding you accountable. I think it makes a decent ornament and paper weight as well, but everyone has different tastes.
I own a kindle, so I tend to get through quite a lot of business books. In this section I’ll include some of my favorite ones, regardless of whether they are productivity centric or not.
The ONE Thing
This is one of those books that I started reading because I had it recommended to me SO MANY times. I’m no way the first person to recommend it to you, and I doubt I will be the last either. It’s that good.
For people who don’t have a problem with focus per se, but instead have a problem of working on too many things and projects at once, this is a must read.
The 4 Hour Workweek
Many of you will have read this already. I can’t tell you how many online entrepreneurs I’ve met who said this book is what started everything for them.
Some of the things covered are a little dated now, but the foundation of the book remains solid, and it’s a great read no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey.
I started affiliate marketing shortly after reading this book, so to some extent you could argue without it, there’d be no HPD.
Influence: The Psychology Of Persuasion
After reading this, you’ll understand a lot more about selling, about scarcity, and reciprocity.
Robert Cialdini literally wrote the book on the different techniques you can use to influence people into buying more from you, which has a lot of applications for affiliate marketers as well.
