Why You Haven’t Upgraded: 8 Questions Answered

SocialShare_612x612_4Logos 5 has been our most popular version ever, and thousands of customers have made the jump to the new software. But now, after August 5, upgrade discounts are ending.

Of course, it’s natural to have a lot of questions about upgrading your base package. It’s a big investment—both economically and educationally. We’ve heard questions as simple as “Which upgrade should I get?” and as complicated as “What dataset can help me find every place in the Bible where Jesus declares that he loves someone?

Since upgrade discounts are ending very soon, we wanted to address several important questions that you’ve maybe been wondering about. If, at any point while you’re reading this post, you want to upgrade, go to Logos.com/Upgrade to get your custom discount.

Let’s get started:

1: Is now really the best time to upgrade?

Short answer: yes. When we launched Logos 5, thousands of people were excited to get the new features and resources, and quickly upgraded to the new software. But, like me, many wanted to see how well Logos 5 performed before making the leap to the next level. Now, more than a year after launch, Logos 5 is our most acclaimed version ever!

Act quickly—the Logos 5 upgrade sale discounts are coming to an end. Upgrade discounts end August 5!

2: What does a dataset really do?

The secret sauce behind Logos 5 is Logos’ new datasets. If you’re using a previous version of Logos (or the free Logos 5 engine), you’re missing out on these powerful tools. Datasets make studying the Bible both quicker and more interactive.

Let’s say you’re doing a search in the Bible for how many times Jesus heals. Traditionally, you’d have to do several individual searches to get this information, and you’d miss every time Jesus is mentioned by a pseudonym like teacher, him, or rabbi. With Logos 5′s Clause Search, though, you can find answers in a matter of seconds. Imagine what types of study you could do, and what you could do with the time you save!

Take a look at the rest of Logos 5′s datasets and features to see how they could improve the way you study, teach, and share information about the Bible.

3: Do I really need more books?

Before you upgrade to a larger library, you might have questions. “I already have the books I want; why would I get more?” “What’s the point of having more resources?” Having more books isn’t necessarily about the books you use every time; it’s about the power of a networked library of resources.

More books means more connections between your books. You’ll find authors who share your same understanding, and you’ll also find authors with completely different views. You’ll benefit from resources that make your datasets more powerful, and you’ll understand more with illustrations that show the text from new angles.

In the end, more books equals more learning.

4: Am I going to lose the books I already own?

You’ve purchased several resources in Logos. Maybe you even own a previous base package. Will you lose your resources when you upgrade?

Definitely not!

When you buy a book in Logos, you buy the license to that book, and the license is yours forever. That means that when you upgrade to Logos 5, you keep everything you already own.

In fact, you’ll even get a custom discount based on your current library. That way you never pay for the same book twice.

5: I got the free update to Logos 5; isn’t that the same thing as an upgrade?

This is one of the most common questions about Logos 5. The answer is important: there’s a big difference between getting the free update and upgrading to Logos 5.

The free update is just the engine, without any resources or datasets—it’s missing all the tools that make Logos 5 powerful. You won’t have access to things like the Timeline or Clause Search, and you’ll miss out on the key resources that connect these datasets.

When you upgrade, you get the full experience. In a lot of ways, Logos 5 is like a car. If you don’t have fuel in the engine, the car won’t do what it’s intended. You can think of Logos 5′s datasets and resources as that fuel. Without them, you’re not using Logos to its full potential.

6: Which upgrade should I get?

Selecting the right upgrade can be tough. There are many levels of base packages, and you might have a very specific type of study you want to do. Which dataset would you benefit from most? Which resources would be best for your small group? What if you’re a pastor—which base package is best?

Our Logos 5 specialists want to hear these questions, help you pick the package that’s best for you, and get you the best possible deal on an upgrade. Call them today at 888-875-9491!

7: What if I don’t like the resource selection in an upgrade?

You understand the value of having a larger library, but maybe, despite the large savings, the resources in a given upgrade aren’t exactly what you’re looking for. Good news—you now have more options to choose from!

Over the past four months, we’ve released Reformed, Anglican, Lutheran, and Seventh-day Adventist base packages! Each gives you Logos 5′s main datasets, along with a resource selection built specifically for your tradition of choice.

Hurry: these tradition-specific base packages are 15% off for a limited time. Discounts end August 5!

8: What do I do if I have more questions?

If you still have questions, don’t worry! Our Logos 5 specialists are waiting to hear from you, and they’ll answer any questions you have about upgrading.

Give them a call right now at 888-875-9491, and get the upgrade that’s right for you!

Remember, discounts end after August 5! Go to Logos.com/Upgrade today to lock in your upgrade discount.

Why an Upgrade Now Is Better than an Upgrade Later

last-chance-logos-5-upgrade-saleAn upgrade to Logos 5 is the best way to get all the resources that make Logos 5 powerful, while getting the best deal on a new library. But don’t wait—upgrade discounts end August 5. Check out your custom discount before it’s gone!

Open doors you didn’t know existed

Datasets power your library. If you’re using Logos 5 as just an ereader, you’re not getting the full experience of what Logos 5 can do for your Bible study. Datasets were created to connect your resources and unveil new discoveries you didn’t even know you could find, like:

Pinpointing every time Jesus heals in the Bible with Logos 5’s Clause Search. Doing this type of research in print would take hours, but now you can find every Scripture passage that applies with one click.

Searching the Bible in its historical context with Timeline. You won’t have to consult numerous historical resources to discover when exactly Paul wrote his letters to Corinth. With the Timeline, you can see exactly when historical events occurred, alongside relevant events from the same time period.

Is the “hand” a physical hand or a metaphorical hand of God? Discover any word’s meaning with the Bible Sense Lexicon. From right within the text, you can find out the Hebrew or Greek meaning behind English words.

Get all of Logos 5’s datasets when you upgrade to Gold or above—and tack on the upgrade-sale discounts when you upgrade today.

Don’t miss Logos 5’s resources

With each edition of Logos base packages, we add in a bunch of new datasets, tools, and resources. However, in order to make more room for new resources, we have to remove them as well. This doesn’t mean you’ll lose any products you already own, but if you wait until the next version, you’ll miss out on the opportunity to add to your library at the best possible price! You’ll never get a better deal on all these books than when you upgrade—it’s as simple as that.

Don’t wait until the next version to upgrade, because you may miss out on a resource you want at a fraction of the price it costs individually. We don’t know what will be removed from base packages during the next release, but you won’t want to miss out on these discounts while they last!

Check out all of our base packages at Logos.com/Upgrade—even choose from our new Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican, or Seventh-day Adventist base packages!

Upgrade now, pay over time

You know you want the new datasets, and the resources in the Gold upgrade look appealing, but the price just isn’t doable for you.

Don’t pay it all now, pay it over time—claim your discounts from the Logos 5 upgrade sale, and upgrade with a payment plan!

All discounts for a Logos 5 upgrade end August 5! Visit Logos.com/Upgrade to upgrade today.
