Why I Did It—The Truth Comes Out

nevergiveupSee the frog? That’s me.

Whether it’s a good idea or not, I’m the guy that never wants to give up. When I see my favorite NFL team punting the ball or going for the field goal at “4th and goal” it drives me nuts—I would go for the first or the touchdown every time. Now I’m no football expert, and I am sure smarter, more experienced coaches than I, are simply playing the percentages, but there’s something in me that always wants to win now, or go out in a blaze of glory trying.

A few weeks ago it became clear, here at Logos, that we were within striking distance of a major milestone for our company, but it didn’t look certain that we would make it. Can you imagine how this messed with my head?

Instead of planning our work, and working our plan, I went into full on “bull-in-a-china-shop” mode to do whatever it took to hit the milestone. I knew there was no way my poor confused brain would be able to handle coming so close to the finish line, only to come crashing down in an unceremonious, yet spectacular, crash just inches short of crossing it.

Long story short: I “Mega Packed” Christmas.

The new 500 Book Mega Pack is my “blaze of glory” effort to end this year firmly across the finish line of our goals. Plain and simple, it is not normal, it is extremely rare, it is massively discounted, and it may be your only opportunity ever to take advantage of my obsessive compulsive desire to hit goals, and make you a huge winner too. I know that I can’t get there without you, so I had to do what it takes to reward you with an unbelievably compelling offer for helping me reach my goals.

With fewer than a dozen days left in the year, something spectacular had to be done to “move the needle” enough to guarantee victory. We had to do something extreme.

Mega Pack is extreme.

It is not just another product or promotion. It is the biggest discount we have ever offered. In fact, it is so good I actually asked my team not to allow dynamic pricing on it, because the discount was already bigger than anything we had ever done before. Credit to whom credit is due, and good news for you… my team fought for you, to make it even better, and pleaded to let you win twice and combine the best discount we’ve ever had with even further discounting from your dynamic price.

You’ll notice that Mega Pack doesn’t have the same look and feel of most of our marketing. It is hyped, sensational, and perhaps a bit cheesy. That’s my fault. I assure you I will back off the cheese and let our high standards of elegance return once this promotion is over. The reason for the cheese is to stand out and shake you by the shoulders and plead with you to realize the truth. We knew we had to make something this extremely incredible to get your attention and convince you to spend your money now—just so we could hit our goal for this year. We can both win, and that’s a good thing.

It really will go away, forever.

Now that you know the truth behind why this product is so incredibly discounted and hyped, you’ll forgive us for forcing everyone to place their orders for it before the end of the year, because the reality is we are really just trying to hit a goal, not make more money. As crazy as that sounds, it is the truth. That’s why we are discontinuing the product at the end of the year, even though we know it could make a lot of money in the future. The goal is right before us, and we need to hit it now, because once December 31 passes, it won’t matter anymore. I’d rather hit the goal now than make more money overall. I know, I have a problem. (Fortunately I know where to get some great biblical counseling books.)

Please don’t blame the team for my cheese.

Now I’ve been saying “me,” “my,” and “I” all over this post… but please don’t get it wrong, all the work that went into creating this massive product and promotion from scratch in just a few days was put in by the incredible team of amazing people at Logos, right before Christmas. All I did was be unreasonably obsessive compulsive and throw a wrench in the spokes of the well laid plans they were already executing on. Please reward the team’s work by buying the Mega Pack (and if you appreciate all their hard work, please show it with a kind word for them in the comments section below). Thanks!

So there you have it. The 500 Book Mega Pack is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get the best discount we have ever offered on a massive $10,000.00+ library of books, for a ridiculously small fraction of that price, and I can feel all warm and fuzzy about hitting a goal, (hmm I can’t help but feel that you are getting the bigger win here) but you have to act now!

You might not believe I’d say this…

I know it sounds crazy to hear me to say it, but the Mega Pack may not be for you. Really, you don’t have to buy it. Did you get that? One more time to be sure—don’t let the marketing hype push you into a bad financial position—seriously. It doesn’t matter how good the deal is if it is not a good idea for your finances. If you can’t afford this (or any impulse luxury you don’t need) don’t buy it. I’d rather completely miss this goal than push one person into dire financial straits.

Just because it is the best discount we have ever offered, doesn’t mean you have to have it. Yes it is a great deal, but if you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. I’d hate to think that you made a poor financial decision for you or your family because I felt a compulsion to hit a goal that was set just for fun. We are not a publicly traded company, we have no one to impress, we are doing great, we aren’t even talking about what the goal is. I just thought it would be fun to hit the goal, and I wanted you to be blessed with an unprecedented opportunity to get a huge library of books that are sure to help you continue to explore and discover the wonders of the Word of God, at an amazing discount, so we both win big. You get an incredible deal, I get bragging rights. Hey wait a second, now that I “say it out loud” it doesn’t seem like I’m making such a great call here, what I am I going to do with bragging rights? Oh well, that ship has sailed. It’s alright if you are winning more than I am, I don’t mind.

Why are you reading when you should be dialing?

If money is no object, or if a payment plan of $39 per month or less is not a strain, you should be dialing 888-875-9491 right now. If you don’t call right now (and please note the area code is “888″ not “800″) or add the Mega Pack to your shopping cart in the next sixty seconds, I won’t feel sorry for you when you realize you really did want it come January, and the only way you can get it is to meticulously add 500 books to your cart and shell out $10,000.00 or so. I guess it is your call, $399.95 now or $10,000.00 later, hmm, tough call. OK, honestly I will feel sorry for you, so maybe I’ll shave a few thousand dollars off that $10,000.00 order, but it still won’t be $399.95 like it is now while you still have time.

    What, no steak knives?

    Seriously though, looking through the list of 500 books, there is a fair amount of dross, wouldn’t you agree?

    I can’t imagine anyone ‘meticulously’ adding that particular selection, and paying up to $10K for it. A bit hypey, Dan?

    That is not to say that there may not be $400 worth of gold in there, but one man’s gold is another man’s dross, no?

    I looked through the list and won’t be parting with my $400 at this stage.

    Cheers

      Interesting that while others’ comments were posted, mine remains awaiting moderation.

      Why would that be, I wonder.

    I got it, and then, I got it! Great value and good addition to my Logos package! Thanks for the Mega-Pack and Happy New Year.

    I really like this 500 Book Mega Pack deal! However, this came at a time where my budget has been used up on Christmas expenses and there is no way I could have been able to afford it at such a short notice. Well, Dan the Man, I really admire your guts and wish your year ends with a bang!

    I am not sure what the striking distance of a major milestone is for Logos; speaking strictly as a customer, the Mega-Pack is a good deal, and honestly if it was not because of the dynamic pricing, I could not afford it and would not have purchased it. Wish this also goes to any of the Logos 5 base package, even for a day. Wish you all have a prosperous new year and a belated Merry Christmas.

    Hi Dan,

    I just wanted to take this opportunity, as year end approaches, to thank you and everyone at Logos for producing such an incredible tool to help us dig deeper into God’s Word so it can be a transforming force in our lives.

    The more I use Logos the more I discover what an incredible and wonderful tool it is. I know that everyone at Logos are proud of what they have accomplished and want to continue to improve Logos. Insincerely appreciate and am thankful for Logos.

    Cheesy or not, the special deal is wonderful. I have to pass due to financial restraints and priorities at the moments, but I will continue to invest in Logos because I am investing in my spiritual growth and health.

    Thanks and that God may continue to bless you, your family and the Logos family in 2014 and beyond. I am really looking forward to what new surprises you guys have prepare for us in Logos 6.

    Thanks for the offer, a definite winner for Logos users, very comprehensive addition
    To the Library…..a must for everyone even if a little sacrifice is necessary… Thanks

    I checked out some of the Harnack History of Dogma pages, which were badly scanned, and blurry. Quality is really unacceptable. But I may buy it anyway.

    • Dan December 30, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

      Chuck, the page scans we have on the product pages are to give you a feel for the content itself before we digitize it. The finished product is always beautiful full text in Logos (unless we are selling a image only product – very rare).

    Long story short: I jumped at this.. things converged in such a way that I didn’t just get this deal, but two other things that have been on my wish list for quite a long time: (Finally) get the Logos 5 upgrade, and an add on pack of my favorite author, AW Tozer.. and the other 500 books are just a bonus, although this did push me over to arrange things in my budget and do this a tad bit sooner. Don’t worry, last month became the first month since July 2008 that I COULD afford to do any of this! It’s a long story (and even involves a job interview at the Logos offices in B’ham!), but now things are clicking along for me again (now gainful employed, and 2000 miles away from Everett, WA now!), and this deal is just icing on an already amazing story of God’s work and provision for me, RIGHT at the time it, again, became possible to even consider, let alone ACT on any purchases from Logos yet again!!! *He* is good, as we all know! And thank you for this ‘little’ extra bonus! Paul P, formerly of Monroe WA, recently relocated to Dallas, TX!

    I have not yet purchased a base package, could I buy this 500 Mega pack as my starter in Logos?

    • Dan Pritchett December 30, 2013 at 2:10 pm #

      Matt, you certainly can’t go wrong with the value, but honestly a base package is much more thought out for providing you a well-rounded theological library’s essential parts. First and foremost, Bibles. I’d love to have this sale for the Mega Pack, but I’d have to honestly say that if you can only buy one thing, the base package is the better choice as a way to get into our system.
