REW Lead Manager 2.5 Enhanced Pre-release
Important Update! Custom programming hours have been added at a discount of 25% off
The custom programming hours need to be purchased in blocks of 5 and can only be purchased if you are purchasing a 2.5 upgrade.
Begin original post:
Greetings REW customers (especially those attending the summit this year) - as many of you know, we have completed our CMS 2.5 enhanced lead management system and it is scheduled to be available July 30th, 31st.
I realize however that many folks that are coming to the conference are going to want to spend time enhancing their lead follow up systems during our hands-on networking sessions and seeing as I will be teaching my class using the new 2.5 it just makes sense to allow these people to be able to follow along on the same system as opposed the the standard 2.0
So I have decided to allow an early release:
This release will be available first to those folks attending the conference. I will email you specifically so that you can confirm your order and get in the queue. Once all conference attendees have had their lead system enhanced we will begin performing upgrades on a first come first served basis to the rest of our clients.
So how much is this thing?
I can't guarantee this price as we need to do several upgrades to see if it's realistic, but for conference attendees the price for the upgrade labor will be $199 USD. There is also an additional monthly cost for maintanence and usage of $9.95 per month (paid yearly) which will be prorated to your hosting account. Thus for those taking advantage of 2.5 enhanced their monthly hosting will go from $40 per month to $49.95
Note on custom hacks in your current system: - The 2.5 enhanced, should you order it, will "replace" your current system as the default 2.5. If you have any custom applications built into your 2.0 CMS they are not transferred over to 2.5 by default and will need to be re-added. The cost for this will be just our standard hourly rate of $100 USD per hour and you will need to get a written estimate and provide approval should you wish to have those features moved.
It most certainly should not cost anywhere near the cost of development to move them, generally a couple hours max, and in many cases you may decide they are no longer necessary with the enhanced functionality of 2.5 - if you have questions let me know below as a comment.
Why do I want to upgrade?
There are a ton of reasons to want to upgrade - I have begun documenting them at my "lead management system" page for that class on the conference. For now please visit that hyperlink above or go to http://www.realestatewebmasters.com/rew-summit/lead-management-system.php for the info - I will spend time transcribing it into a blog appropriate format as soon as I have time, but more importantly for summit attendees - please confirm that you would like the upgrade here in the blog post so that we can schedule you in and get it done BEFORE the conference.
I have special blocks of hours set aside to accomplish this, so as long as you let us know right away, we should be able to get you upgraded.
Requirements for the upgrade:
- You must have a "current" CMS 2.0 in order to upgrade to 2.5 enhanced. If you have a CMS 1 then you must first have it upgraded to CMS 2.0 before you can order 2.5.
I highly doubt anyone coming to the conference is still on the CMS 1.0 platform, but I haven't checked. If you do have CMS 1 and want to upgrade, it will just be billable hours to do so. Feel free to contact email@example.com for an estimate.
So who wants to be first?
Actually Wayne Long of http://www.columbushomeshow.com was first because I got approval from him already yesterday when we were chatting on facebook (Wayne, care to share a few words about the new system?).
But who wants to be "next" I suppose is the question. Please post your order below
