12 Days of Xmas Promo – Biggest REW promotion of the year!
It's that time again – Real Estate Webmasters's biggest promotion of the year! We have our best deals during this promotion and we also announce new & exciting features. We have the new LEC 2014 on pre-sale (with a sneak peak), a new API to announce and some great upcoming partnerships to help all REW users take their game to the next level. Keep reading to find out all about it – and if you have questions, please ask me in the comments section, I would love to give you any information you need.
This promotion tends to sell out quickly for any items that are of limited quantity and for everything else, remember it's first come first served in our queue so early orders can be done right away. Ordering near the end of the promo means you still get amazing deals, but it will be a while before we can complete your order.
This promotion will easily sell out our queue through January. If you have a project you need done before the end of the year, you need to get it in early!
2014 promises to be the best year in recent memory. Consumer confidence is back, homes are flying off the market (so much so that in many areas there is barely any inventory) and with all this business comes great opportunity to capture a much bigger piece of this great market.
Let's not forget it's also your best opportunity to get expenses in before tax deadline! Who couldn't use a write off, right about now? :)
Let's get to the great deals, shall we!?
How about 50% off of pretty much everything except labor? All “fixed cost” upgrades are 50% off.
Fully responsive premium templates? 50% off! (Save $2500)
Our basic templates with integrated IDX? 50% off!
I told you it was some great deals!
But what about market exclusive high end LEC products? Our Limited Edition Custom sites retail at $10,000 per site per market area. During this promotion you can save on any available models left. This is the first time ever we have offered a discount / promo on LEC 2013 ($2500 off) and you can save up to 65% on the previous years' models (if available). Please ask, if you want to know if an LEC is available in your market, by posting a comment below.

- 2012 at $5,000, Save $5000
- 2013 at $7,500, Save $2500 (latest LEC currently available)
LEC 2014 Pre-sale: Some of our more popular markets have already sold out through 2014, 2015 even 2016! That's how popular and exclusive this limited edition product is. And these people have pre-purchased the LEC sight unseen (they have never even seen a mockup).
For the first time ever, I am going to post a preview of the top secret LEC in the year previous to its release (the LEC 2014 will be here in the first quarter of 2014) – and if anyone would like to lock up their market they can do so now at the retail price of $10,000 USD AND if you need to get started sooner, we will give you a free premium template in the meantime so you can starting doing your SEO, PPC etc. and get to know our system.
Here is your preview of LEC 2014
When the LEC becomes available, we will simply overwrite your premium template with your new LEC at no cost assuming you have not customized the premium template.
Pre purchased hours at incremental discounts:
- 10 hours @ $120
- 50 hours @ $115
- 100 hours @ $110
- 200+ hours $100
- Note - pre-purchased hours quantities are limited.
Also first crack at LEC 2014 pre-sale $10,000 - Oh yeah, we are also celebrating the release of the brand new www.realestatewebmasters.com website – I'd love to know what you think.
Finally let's talk about hosting / SAAS / IDX fees (existing customers only)
In June 2013 our hosting rates went up (a whopping $20 on regular hosting) with similar % increases to premium hosting. This was the first increase in many years even after we more than tripled our support staff, infrastructure and made major investments in new hardware and cloud based technologies. This price increase has since applied to "new sites only" - however effective January 1, 2014 all customers (regardless of backend version) will be on the new, unified hosting prices.
Website hosting / SAAS
- Site/backend (No IDX): $59 USD per month
- Premium Hosting (No IDX): $159 USD per month
- IDX Data: $40 USD (per feed per month)
Now let's talk about how how we keep your current hosting rate for more than 2 years!
Here's the deal - during this promotion we will allow you to pre-pay for up to 2 years of hosting (at your current rate). So for example, if you were due to renew in February 2014 you would have to pay the new rate, but if you pre-paid 2 years now it would be at the existing rate and that rate would be locked until February 2016 - Easy, right?
As with all hosting - if for some reason you leave us (you won't) or you go out of business or sell (we hope you don't) any pre-paid hosting is 100% refundable with 30 days notice. (Cancel in Feb. 2015 means March 2015 on is refundable).
This promo is going to get crazy busy, so I personally will likely not be able to take your calls. Therefore I would ask that if you have a question for me, please post it in the blog comments below (I will approve them and then answer them ASAP).
Alternatively you can:
email: your assigned sales rep
call 1-877-753-9893 (Toll free) and request to speak to sales (or your assigned rep)
One last note - please do not expect to get your projects in the queue tomorrow -
REW is ALWAYS very busy - this sale will mean that many of you probably won't even start your projects until December or January (even though we have over 70 staff) so please try to look at this as:
- Getting a great deal
- Planning for 2014
- Getting your expenses in before the end of the year tax deadline.
Thank you as always for your fantastic support - we look forward to servicing you for many more years to come!
Update - API's & Partners
Folks have been asking about our API and our current partners (those we have already integrated with) here is some information for you.
First off the API - what is an API? Technically it's an "Application Programming Interface" but what it "means" is that there is now a "something" that with the help of REW can far more easily connect with third party interfaces / services.
Not only can we connect you with third party services (think sales force, infusionsoft etc) with a work order - we are also creating our own partnerships and connections on "our" dime.
Here is a list of current providers we have completed or are working with: (Connected to most of these services should not require a work order)
- GuaranteedSale.com - if you are a Guaranteed Sale user, you can have your leads auto populated into the REW System under a custom group GS and set up custom seller drips etc for those leads
- HappyGrasshopper.com - Users of happy grasshopper can multi select leads and auto populate those leads to the HG system to be assigned to drips and other services.
- Mandrill - high delivery email system by constant contacts (comes with analytics) - now much easier to connect in the backend.
- SendGrid Similar - service to Mandrill for transactional Mail
- Bomb Bomb - SUPER COOL video emailing system (send video emails with the click of a button from the REW Backend - *still in beta*
- Follow Up Boss - Popular CRM product send leads directly to FUB *in development*
Those are just a few things we're doing with our API - and don't forget, now that it exists, it opens up a whole new world of possibilities to connect with third parties of all kinds.
And don't forget - please post your comments below!
