Have you ever pre-ordered a book on Verbum.com? If so, you already know what a great deal it is. If not, you’re missing out! Here are four reasons you should take advantage of Pre-Publication:
1) You will save money
Pre-Publication is the best deal you’ll get on a Verbum resource. Save up to 50% when you pre-order a new book or collection—once it’s produced, the price will never be that low again. Pre-order early for the best deal!
2) You choose which books we produce
Pre-Publication works like other crowdfunding platforms (Kickstarter, GoFundMe, etc.). You tell us which books to invest in, and we give you a great deal on the books we produce. Share with your friends to ensure your books get funded!
3) There’s no financial commitment
You don’t pay a cent until your book is ready for download, and you can cancel your pre-order at any time. Lock in your risk-free pre-order discount!
4) You get free gifts (for a limited time)!
By pre-ordering select resources, you’ll earn promotional codes worth $10, $20, or $50 off a future order. This offer is only good until July 31—check it out at Verbum.com/Pre-Publication!
Pre-Pubs can be very worthwhile, and I’ve taken advantage of plenty of them, but Community Pricing deals are even better, and it’s always puzzled me why Community Pricing is not available from the Verbum site. Even the Orders page on Verbum does not include my CP bids, as the Logos-branded pages do. In fact, the Verbum site seems generally less functional than the main Logos site, which I find disappointing. How about a fully functional Verbum portal?
The Verbum site remains a work in progress, so the disparity in functionality is mainly a matter of competing priorities. Fortunately, there are some changes in the works that should make it easier to get Community Pricing and other features added across Verbum.com and the other Faithlife storefronts, so we’re hopeful that we’ll see faster progress in the upcoming months.
Thanks for your feedback (and patience).
