Website trade in and LEC 6 pre sale
Many customers have been asking when I am going to be launching LEC (Limited Edition Custom) version 6 and if they can pre-purchase it and lock up the exclusive for thier markets. The answer is I began development this week - and I am planning for a maximum of 3 months total development time. I leaked this information to my sales people on Tuesday, and several markets / LEC 6's have already been snapped up, even before I made the official announcement. Just like all the LEC's this product is expected to sell out the most popular areas very quickly - I suggest you get in now, before someone once again beats you to the punch.
As with all LEC lauches we are running a co-inciding promotion - Anthony (newest member of our sales team) suggested the idea of a "website tradein" which as a sales team we all agreed could be quite fun - so here you have it - the LEC 6 pre-launch and website trade in promotion - details below :)
Limited Edition Customs are on sale for $7500 across the board (including the new LEC 6)
Common upgrades (fixed cost items) are on sale for 25% off the retail price
Spiderable (built in) custom IDX is 50% off (save $1250 USD on setup
Custom design hours: Both the SEO dept, and custom programming dept have reported being incredibly busy and are nearly sold out, so I could not get any additional hours out of them for this promotion - however the custom design (graphics) dept did inform me that they can handle an additional overflow of approx 500 hours - therefore I am putting these hours on sale at $100 per hour (a discount of $25 per hour) as well (retail is $125) - first come first served - when they are gone they are gone.
And of course there is the website tradein portion - discounts listed below:
- New template purchases: trade in your old website for a maximum $500 discount
- LEC purchases / upgrades: trade in your old website for a maximum $1500 discount
- Custom website purchases: trade in your old website for a maximum $3000 discount
How does the "trade in" work?
It's simple - you provide proof of purchase from your previous website and we will discount you the entire amount of that invoice to a maximum as listed above. Real Estate Webmasters customers do not need to provide proof of purchase as we already have the details of their original orders on file. *Note this is not the entire purchase history for the site, just the original setup cost.
A few simple examples:
#1 - A Real Estate Webmasters customer on an older version of a template (let's say CMS 1) and had no add ons would have paid $740 setup. If they would like to switch to a newer template (which are now actually priced lower than the old ones at $499) - they actually pay nothing for the upgrade / setup as they would get the full $500 discount. If they were instead to want to upgrade to an LEC (limited edition custom) product - they would get the already discounted rate of $7500 PLUS an additional $740 discount for the trade in value (full price) of their previous template due to it being under the $1500 maximum.
#2 - A non Real Estate Webmasters customer has an old custom site they are not happy with and they wanted to switch to our LEC product. This person provides proof of purchase of $5000 and wants to upgrade to an LEC. They would pay only $6000 for the new LEC ($7500 discounted price PLUS the max $1500 discount as thier proof of purchase is greater thant he maximum. If they chose to go custom instead - they would start with $15,000 worth of retail hours (our minimum for large custom projects) but pay only $12,000 for the starting package. They would also be able to access all of their necessary products (IDX, blogs etc) at a discount as well.
Please contact your sales rep directly or post comments "in this post below"
As with all promotions - our sales department (especially my office) is going to get incredibly busy - I would ask that if you are assigned to a sales person other than myself (Patrick, Anthony B, or Allison) that you please contact them via email or telephone directly as they will be able to assist in the quickest manner possible. If you have questions of me or this promotion specifically - please post them in the comments section of this blog below - during promo times I cannot take non scheduled calls - and with the CRM 4.0 summit in Las Vegas coming out, the building of LEC 6 and several new products launching - my time is less accessible than normal.
