LEC 2012 Pre-sale & promotion on other LEC's and products
UPDATE: This promotion has ended.
Looks like it's time for our first promotion of 2012 and as per usual, this promotion is in conjunction with a very exciting new product announcement.
What is the new product, you ask? LEC 2012
LEC 2012 (Limited Edition Custom) is the newest high end regional exclusive launch from Real Estate Webmasters. Previous versions have been called LEC 2, LEC 3 etc., however for this year, we have decided to change the name to better reflect the nature of this product and help users understand the difference between a version 2, let's say, and a version 7. Version 7 (now called 2012) is this year's model and reflects all the latest techniques and technologies available in web design, and takes into account new adoptions such as new browsers (IE 9, Chrome) and of course further addresses the rise of mobile devices (including iPads).
This promotion is a "pre-sale" for LEC 2012 (like we have done in past years). We are at the point now where we have directional mockups approved and the concept and code is already in production. I anticipate the availability for install of this product to be early-to-mid June, but as many of you know (because you have missed purchasing previous years' LEC's), these products sell out very quickly, especially in our most competitive markets. This is due to the nature of this product — we ONLY SELL ONE PER MAJOR CITY — so if you have missed out in past years, be sure to post your order right away, or it may be gone. In fact, we leaked news of this design to certain circles and we have already sold 13 markets at full retail price. I have posted a mockup below to allow you to preview the new site concept (please note, this is a directional mockup only, final product may differ slightly).
Other than a smoking hot design, the latest and greatest REW technology (including REW 4.2, which has not even been announced) what makes LEC 2012 special?
Two words: Responsive Design
What is responsive design, you ask? Responsive design is the process of creating a flexible framework that allows your website to adapt to the device it is being viewed on. This means if you are on a PC with large monitors, you are provided with the best viewing experience for that monitor. Go down to the resolution of an iPad and your iPad automatically renders the site correctly when horizontal, while still maintaining a decent font size, etc. - but what? You want to turn your iPad vertically? All of a sudden iPad tries to compensate again, and you are left with font too small to read and have to zoom in to continue your experience. Responsive design will change this by actually serving a different style sheet (modified design, same content) to the vertical iPad vs. the horizontal. Want to send that link from iPad to your phone to show someone in the car? Once again, the design will adapt and optimize itself for smart phone consumption. It's quite revolutionary and we are proud to be the first large real estate vendor to offer it standard in a product. The graphic below should provide a good visual reference:
This is not to say that your option for LEC 2008 (formerly LEC 2), for example, is a bad investment. They are still amazingly high quality offerings and far superior to other products available on the market today. In fact, from a technologies perspective, LEC's are retrofitted (if new purchase) with technology of today in terms of "what's under the hood". Think of it kind of like a car (a really high end car like a Mercedes SLS class) — if you have a 2008 SLS, you pretty much have the highest end car in your town. However, it might not have the iPod docking feature (or responsive design) of the 2012 SLS (but it still has the same engine and performance). That is kind of how the LEC's work and for reason of simplified explanation, we have decided to change their names. Make sense?
So what's the promo? I want a deal!
During this promotion, we are going to be selling LEC's at a graded rate based on their age.
- LEC 2012 retail $10,000 USD (*note: customers upgrading are eligible for a special discount, see below)
- LEC 2011 (formerly LEC 6) $9,000
- LEC 2010 (formerly LEC 5) $7000
- LEC 2009 (formerly LEC 4) $6000
- LEC 2008 (formerly LEC 2) $5000
For existing LEC customers "upgrading" to LEC 2012, a discount of 20% off the "current promotional rate" will be applied to your purchase of a new LEC 2012. In exchange, you must hand in your existing LEC and allow us to make that version available in your market area. For example, LEC 2008 upgrading to LEC 2012 would get a discount of $1000 off the purchase price, and would give up their rights to 2008 as a trade-in.
Again remember, even the 2008 LEC will be equipped with our newest "under the hood" features such as mobile lead management, mobile IDX, 4.1 CRM technologies and many other great features of newer versions. No matter which version you choose, you cannot go wrong with an LEC product. Please remember, we only sell 1 LEC version per major city, and it is a first-come, first-served process (we must receive payment to reserve your spot). Every time we run an LEC promotion we have multiple orders in many cities, and many customers who aren't quick to make payment miss out on their LEC and end up having to wait another year — don't be that person this year!
In addition to the LEC offerings above, we are also offering the following discounted rates:
- 25% off all "fixed cost" upgrades from our upgrades menu (new or existing customers)
- 50% off the setup on our newest "built-in" SEO spiderable IDX platform
- 100% off the setup fees on our template-based websites
*Standard hosting rates apply
There are a few conditions to this promotion:
- Orders for LEC's (in order to guarantee your area) must be paid for based on the terms negotiated
- New orders cannot be placed if existing balances are past due
- Orders must be placed by April 15th 2012
