Save on Base Packages Now, Earn Christmas Credit Later!

With a 15% discount, interest free payment plan options, and Logos.com credit, Christmas 2011 may be the best time ever to get a new Logos base package!

Base Packages: Tons of Content at an Incredible Price

Base packages are already your best bet to get thousands of dollars worth of resources for pennies on the dollar. If you are unfamiliar with the amazing content available in our base packages, check out our handy comparison chart. But I warn you, it’s going to take a while to wrap your mind around all the resources available in our base packages.

Just look at the sheer number of books available:

The sheer volume of content in Logos base packages makes them incredibly valuable—even at regular price. When you factor in the 15% discount—and all the extra content available with Logos.com credit you’ll earn—it’s an unbelievable deal!

Take Advantage of Holiday Savings!

You can purchase any base packages at 15% off through January 2. This represents even greater savings on collections which are already a great value! With your holiday purchase of a base package, you can save anywhere from $22–$643. And our interest-free Payment Plans, let you stretch those payments out for up to 12 months!

On top of an already great price, through New Year’s Day, you can get a portion of your base package purchase returned to you in the form of Logos.com credit. “How much,” you ask?

These amounts represent the credit earned on a base package purchase. Remember, the more you spend, the more you earn. Make sure you familiarize yourself the details of our Christmas Credit promotion.

An Example of Christmas Savings

If you were to pick up Scholar’s Platinum today, you would save 15%, spread those payments out for 12 months, and then receive $460.94 in Logos.com credit to use in 2012. Just take look at all of the products available for $460, or put that $460 dollars towards a larger collection you want later—your credit will never expire!

So take advantage of Logos’ Christmas 2011 promotion, and purchase a base package for yourself or a loved one today!

*Prices and discounts have been adjusted to reflect changes in the Christmas Credit promotion.

Proclaim Beta Free through January 1!

A free beta of Proclaim is now available! Logos has just released the newest church presentation software on market and made it free to use for your church through New Year’s Day 2012.

Download it now or go to the Proclaim website for more details.

What Is Proclaim?

Proclaim is church presentation software which is going to change the way pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners put together a presentation.

With this newly developed, cloud-based software, your weekly presentations are available online for contributions from every member of your team. This fully collaborative worship solution allows pastors, worship leaders, church admins, and other team members to access and edit the presentation throughout the week.

Because your presentation is online, you can access or present from any internet connected computer. Your presentations are fully cached on your computer once they are opened, so even if you lose internet connection during the service, your presentation will not be affected.

Proclaim connects directly to your CCLI Song Select account to easily pull in song lyrics. There is no more going out to the internet to copy and paste lyrics hoping they are correct. Simply connect your Song Select account and type the song name, and Proclaim takes care of the rest.

You’re going to find that Proclaim is:

Go to ProclaimOnline.com for information, screenshots, and to download your free Proclaim beta.

Downloading Proclaim

Once you download Proclaim, you will be prompted to:

  • Set up a new group—Simply create a group with a name which is specific to your church or worship team. At this point, you can invite others into the group using their email addresses or they can download Proclaim and find your group by name.
  • Enter any pertinent account information—Here is where you would enter in your CCLI Song Select or Graceway Media account.
  • Purchase an “On Air” license—Your “On Air” license allows your Proclaim presentations to be exhibited. You can purchase your “On Air” license at any time during the beta period and take advantage of introductory pricing. If you do purchase an “On Air” license, you will not be billed until the end of the beta period.
  • Start creating your first presentation.

When putting together your presentations, you can subscribe to content from Graceway Media, purchase content à la carte from within Proclaim, or upload your own media and backgrounds. Do you want to see what in-store media will look like in your presentation? All you have to do is add the media and preview the presentation to see it in context before purchasing. Between the background images, smart media, and video loops available in the store, you are sure to find the right creative elements for your service. As a bonus, you will find some free media to use in Proclaim during the free beta period.

A Note for Logos 4 Users

With Proclaim, pastors can send their Scripture and teaching illustrations directly from within Logos 4. Incorporating content from Logos 4 is as easy as right clicking on an image or verse and hitting “Send To Proclaim.” Your content will automatically post when you have Proclaim running and open in the background.

So, download Proclaim today and enjoy it for free during beta period, follow Proclaim on Facebook and Twitter, and then join the discussion with other users in our Proclaim Forum.

 

Earn Logos.com Credit with Your Holiday Purchases!

With the annual 12 Days of Logos sale and 15% off all base packages, you can save big this Christmas on Logos.com!  But did you know that your qualifying purchases—made between December 1, 2011 and January 2, 2012—will count toward Logos.com credit? That’s right! Not only can you save money now, you can also earn Logos.com credit to spend later.

Sign Up for Christmas Credit!

You need to sign up to qualify for this promotion. So the first thing you want to do is head to the 2011 Christmas page and enter your email address to sign up. At the end of the promotion, all qualifying purchases made with the associated email address will be totaled and we will credit the appropriate amount of Logos.com credit to your account.

Don’t worry. If you made a huge purchase earlier this month but hadn’t opted into the promotion yet, you can still get credit for that purchase. As long as you sign up by the end of the promotion (January 2, 2012), every qualifying purchase made during the promotion period (December 1, 2011 through January 2, 2012) will be credited to your account!

How Does Christmas Credit Work?

The total amount of your qualifying purchases made during the promotional period (before taxes and shipping) will place you in 1 of 5 tiers. Each tier offers a percentage of your total spending in Logos.com credit (the percentage increases as your total spending increases). The credit you earn is determined by the price bracket you fall into at the end of the promotion.

  • Spend $10 to $99.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 15% of your total in Logos.com credit (up to $15).
  • Spend $100 to $499.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 20% of your total in Logos.com credit (up to $100).
  • Spend $500 to $999.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 25% of your total in Logos.com credit (up to $250).
  • Spend $1,000 to $2,499.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 30% of your total in Logos.com credit (up to $750).
  • Spend $2,500 to $4,999.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 40% of your total in Logos.com credit (up to $2000).
  • Spend $5,000 or more on qualifying products, and we’ll match 50% of your total in Logos.com credit (there’s no cap to the amount you can earn)!

Shortly after the promotion ends, you will receive your Logos.com credit based on the amount of your qualifying purchases. You can then use your Logos.com credit—which never expires—toward any live products!

What About Payment Plans?

With a Logos Payment plan, you can stretch out your payments for up to 12 months. Did you know that with the Christmas Credit promotion, not only can you use our interest free payment plan, but qualifying purchases can also earn you Logos.credit?

This means you could purchase Portfolio at 15% off (all of our base packages are on sale through January 2), spread those payments out for 12 months, and then receive $1,458.60 in Logos.com credit! That’s enough credit to purchase the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (44 vols.)  and still have nearly $400 to spend on more great resources!

Get All the Details!

Check out all of the details for the Christmas Credit promotion now. Then head to the Christmas 2011 page and sign up to start earning your Logos.com credit today!
