Get Ready for Summer with Netvibes Potions

Summer is officially here! In the Northern Hemisphere, June 21 marks the first day of Summer 2015. While you’re busy enjoying the beach, grilling in the backyard, or planning your summer getaway, let your Netvibes dashboard help by automating some of the digital tasks on your plate.


Netvibes Potions make it simple to program your dashboard to act for you, automatically. You choose the trigger(s) that will activate the Potion, along with the action(s) that you want Netvibes to do, and your dashboard does the rest. That’s it!

Marketing Automation and the Dashboard of Things

Netvibes Potions allow you to automate a variety of digital tasks simply by picking the Triggers and Actions you want to happen. You can tackle everything from personal tasks (e.g., When I add a new photo on Instagram, email it to my mom and save it on Dropbox) to professional use cases in the enterprise.


Many marketing activities can also be automated using Netvibes’ Dashboard of Things. For example:

  • Real-time crisis alerts: When negative mentions of your brand increase in the media, email the PR team and text the CMO.



  • Automated tracking and reporting: When a new article is published that mentions your company, add it to Pocket to read later and compile the articles into an automatic weekly email report.



Netvibes’ CEO, Freddy Mini, and head of marketing, Kim Terca, recently discussed this topic with Shel Holtz for the FIR Podcast Network. Listen to the podcast recording below or visit the FIR website to hear more about how marketers and communications professionals can use the Dashboard of Things.
