Midsummer's Day Invitation: 10% Discount Voucher
 
    To get the full benefit of this opportunity to partner with Scientific Word Ltd., please listen to the audio file - simply click the picture to play (2mins), or else download it as an MP3 file here (it's 1.83Mb; right click the link, then Save Target As).
    To earn rewards with our Partnership programme, just follow these steps:
  1. Download the Discount Voucher, valid until December 2009, and open it with Microsoft Word. Enter your details in the yellow panels in Section 2 - you'll need the serial number (Help - System Features) from your own permanent licence of Scientific Word/WorkPlace/Notebook to be eligible.
  2. Save the personalized .doc file on your computer, and then send it to whichever friends and colleagues have a need for doing scientific wordprocessing, together with your recommendation that they use our software. Let them know you can get them a 10% discount off any one of our programs: Scientific Word, Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Notebook. All they have to do is enter their details in the mauve panels in Section 3, and return Section 2 to us and Section 3 to you when they order. Of course, they're entitled to try out the programs they're interested in first, free of charge, for 30 days - and the Discount Voucher gives them a link for that.
  3. It's a good idea to touch base with your friends a few days later: make sure they've downloaded and installed the 30-day demo, and answer any questions they've got (if necessary, forwarding the questions on to us). Help them throughout the 30-day period, and encourage them as they decide whether or not to buy a permanent licence.
  4. For those of your friends who take advantage of the 10% discount to buy our software (sending Section 2 to us and Section 3 to you), Email their details on to us and we will send you a further 10% commission on their purchase. To enable us to do so, please at that point confirm your address for our (UK) cheque, your bank details for the transfer, or your PayPal account details.

    Please note that this Discount Voucher is valid until the end of December 2009; feel free to make a start as soon as you want. There is no limit to the number of friends you can introduce to us in this way, and no limit to the number of times your voucher can be used (for individuals only, not for institutions). By all means forward it to your Email address book, and friends on Facebook etc. as well as to your research colleagues - but please do not spam our Discount Voucher to people you don't know: there is no point doing so anyway, as no-one will bother returning Section 3 to you.
    In participating honestly in this Partnership programme, you will be helping our business grow, helping your friends fulfill their wordprocessing needs, and furthering the development of academic potential (obviously, you'll only refer us to people who would benefit from using our software). And you'll be receiving significant commission payments as our Thank You. For example, if someone buys a copy of Scientific Notebook costing £180 (pricing is as on our Licence Calculator), using the Discount Voucher they'll get it for just £162 and you'll receive our cheque for £18. Whereas if they buy Scientific WorkPlace, say with Educational discount, costing £540, they'll only pay £486 and you'll get commission of £54 etc.
    So that's our invitation. Interested? Or not? Do please let us know. We'll look forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, partnering with you. This special Midsummer's Day opportunity is in addition to our regular Emails to the Scientific Word family (every couple of months, or so). But as always, if you no longer wish to remain on our mailing list so as to receive information of updates and new developments, a simple Email reply to this effect will suffice. Thanks again for reading.

Cheers,

Christopher
