“Walter helps encourage good reading habits for my daughter!”

“I love Walter because Walter facilitates a good reading habit for my 7-year-old daughter. The interesting sound effects of Walter and the colorful pictures of the books in the Child’s First Library of Learning motivate the children to learn and read!

Napat, age 7, said, ‘I love Walter because it’s fun and teaches me new things every day!’”Image

ELP CD-ROMs troubleshooting

Have you heard of any issues with ELP CD-ROM serial number from your customers? Even if you haven’t, it’s important that you familiarize yourself with two common problems that some of the customers seem to be facing:

  1. You are asked to input the serial number every time you insert a CD-ROM on the same computer.
  2. When you input the serial number, you see a message that the serial number has been registered on three computers already.
The above usually happens when the ‘local storage’ setting in Adobe Flash Player is set to ‘zero’. To change the settings, follow these simple steps:
  1. Go to Adobe Flash Player
  2. Right click on Verification page
  3. Choose “Setting”
  4. Go to “Local Storage”
  5. Set the “Local Storage Size” to Unlimited
  6. Uncheck “Never Ask Again”
  7. Click “Close”

Please note that the serial number is case-sensitive and must be entered exactly as shown on the CD-ROMs. Users require Flash Player version 8 or above to play the CD-ROMs. An upgrade of Flash Player is available at this link. You may also provide this troubleshooting link on our website to your customers.

English-Time CD-ROMs

Our English-Time CD-ROMs were made with Quicktime 4.1, so if the installation program detects that you have a newer version, Quicktime will not be installed. And the videos in the CD-ROMs will not be played. If you have this problem, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Click here, then download and un-compress this .exe file.
  2. Now install it on your computer.
  3. Insert the English-Time CD-ROM 1

Now the videos should play properly. Contact us if you have any problems installing the file.

Please communicate this to your customers at the time of making the service call.

Familiarize yourself with the Facts!

0903-tdpsheetThe TDP product sheet has been one of the most useful ready reference on the facts, features and benefits of the Total Development Program. This is used

  • in the prospectus to explain to customers how the program works
  • as a leave-behind with every purchase in most countries, to remind customers if they are missing parts of the program
  • and at the back of of every User Guide to reinforce that every product is part of the program

And it’s just been updated to include English-Time! Everyone knows the importance of product knowledge for success in sales, and your product knowledge of TDP starts with this sheet. Make sure you know (by heart) and understand everything written on it.

New TDP with English-Time!

0903-tdpThis is what the new TDP looks like, after adding English-Time to it!

Big, beautiful, organized and complete, or intimidating and expensive? That would depend on how effectively you have done the ‘awareness’ before showing the product – the importance of home-education; the need for knowledge, skills and values; and the concept of total development.

Why have we increased the size and price of the package when many teams are struggling to sell the current package?

  1. Efficiency (average size of the order) always goes up with the increase in the size of the package, as long as the new product isn’t smaller than any existing product in the package. That’s a mathematical certainty, regardless of where you are and what’s happening to economy. Most customers who are now buying the 81-unit TDP will buy the 111-unit TDP. Customers who are now buying part of the TDP, will still buy part of the TDP. Customers who are now buying one of the Skills products (ELP or LMA) will have another choice. Thus, the average order size can only go up!
  2. Our TDP becomes more complete with English skills. Even in English markets, there’s a growing concern over teaching our kids ‘proper English’.

So let’s go out and help more families with our new TDP, now more complete than ever!

New English-Time!

0903-etEnglish-Time (ET) has been one of the top-selling products in all non-English markets for more than five years now – Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand! The English edition wasn’t doing all that well until last year when India started selling it as part of the TDP. Sales of ET immediately went up and so did the efficiency with a 111-unit TDP! A big part of India’s growth last year was a result of this increase in efficiency.

Thanks to the initiative of Anu and her managers, we now have a TDP-version of English-Time that will make it easier for salespeople to present and for customers to understand. The enhancements include:

  1. New slipcases, similar to that of other TDP products! ET goes under Skills.
  2. A fresh new look that’s modern and even more appealing! It also highlights the characters even more.
  3. More customer-friendly, wipe-clean pouches for all CDs (audio, video and CD-ROMs), similar to that of CFV!
  4. A new comprehensive User Guide!
  5. Individual boxes for better protection of Sweepy and Zing! We had to remove Electra and Mixit due to packaging limitations.

And yes, we have a new TDP broadside, new prospectus and new product sheets! Details and images will follow. Sri Lanka and Pakistan will be the first two countries to launch the new ET next week!

Note for salespeople: Launch dates in each country depend on many factors like shipping schedule, old stocks etc. Please check with your distributor before talking to your customers about it.
