One week remains in the membership campaign for 2006--the incentives and special offers expire December 15.
I hereby repeat my previous post as a reminder, and for those who may have missed it or are new to the community.
Announcing: membership campaign for 2006
If you are already a platinum member of ProZ.com, thank you. It is your support--and your investment in your business--that makes ProZ.com possible.
With your creativity and participation, we have created tools and opportunities that members have used to expand their businesses, do better work and have more fun. As a community, through such site features as KudoZ, the Blue Board, Powwows, our forums, GlossPost and more, we have changed the translator's profession from a solitary pursuit into something more interactive, more efficient and more fun. Congratulations!
We recently reported to you on our accomplishments in 2005, and we pledge to continue working hard to bring you more features, more clients and more enjoyment in 2006.
Not yet a member? We invite you to consider the benefits, and join us in enhancing your profession.
If you are an active user of this site but you have not yet invested in a platinum subscription, you are not yet a full member of ProZ.com. If you are a professional translator, this post is an invitation to you: We invite you to join us in full membership before the start of 2006.
Why should you join? In addition to substantial return on investment, members report increased efficiency, expanded client bases, improved collaboration with other professionals, and more enjoyment in their work. More about benefits is here. Read testimonials from current members here.
The value of ProZ.com membership extends beyond individual benefit. Together, we have already changed the translation profession, to mutual benefit... But much more remains to be done. The degree to which we can continue making improvements in 2006, and beyond, will be determined by the participation of translators like you. So please join us as we enhance our profession!
We are providing incentives for you to join now.
To encourage you to go platinum before 2006, we are running a membership campaign now through December 15. The incentives are:
- Membership until 2007: If you join in November, you will be a full member until the start of 2007 (i.e. you will receive a month-and-a-half of free membership).
- No transaction fees: Transaction fees will be waived on platinum payments made during the campaign (so that you save on credit card purchases, wire transfers or any other means of payment)
- Chance to win a trip: A lottery will be held and one person who renews or becomes a member during the campaign will win a free trip to a ProZ.com conference next year (in Europe or Buenos Aires).
In addition to these incentives, some members will receive notification of special custom offers. Our goal in this one-time campaign is to expand our network, to the benefit of all who participate.
Changes are coming in 2006.
As you know, a number of benefits are currently reserved for members. In 2006, there will be more, as we continue developing new tools and features exclusively for members.
In addition, please be aware: there will be changes made to the site that will increase focus on members, in some cases at the expense of non-paying users. Already, platinum members meet clients four (4) times more frequently than non-member site users. In 2006, the disparity will be more pronounced.
Now is the best time to become a member
Because of the incentives in the current campaign, and the changes in store for 2006, now is the best time to join ProZ.com as a full member. I hope you will take this opportunity to invest in your business, our workplace, and the profession.

...and the rest of the ProZ.com team: Jason, Cathy, Andrew, Patrick, Justin, Dwayne, Colin, Maria and Leticia.
If you are a translator or if you work with translators, our Mission Statement outlines the way in which we work for you: We provide tools and opportunities for you to network, expand your business, improve your work, and have more fun.
