Meet Netvibes Premium


A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated our 6th birthday. Today, we’re celebrating the birth of Netvibes Premium – our new product for professionals!

Over the years, we’ve had many users ask us for professional “intelligence” features – including analytics, alerts and team collaboration. Netvibes Premium is an instant add-on for individual professionals who need intelligence features for business use.

Both Netvibes and Netvibes Premium users enjoy the same dashboard features – but Premium adds a layer of intelligence features to their dashboard. In other words:

  • Netvibes = free dashboards
  • Netvibes Premium = free dashboards + paid intelligence features

What does this mean for free users? Will you limit our free dashboards?

Netvibes is and will continue to be 100% free. From the very beginning in 2005, we have never served a single display ad or coerced a single user to upgrade for more space. In a sense, we were freemium, before freemium was called freemium.

Unlike other freemium models, we are not going impose any limitations on our free product and no dashboard features will be restricted. Our paid product simply adds an optional, new layer of “intelligence” features on top of our free dashboard features for professionals who need it.

Are you going to stop developing your free dashboard product?
Of course not! We are fully committed to building the world’s best dashboard platform and will continue to evolve our dashboard product for all users. Netvibes Premium gives professional users the features they need for their brand or business, while also ensuring the long term development of our free dashboard product, since the same dashboard platform is shared by both premium and free users.

What is this new green button?
You may have noticed that there is a new, green Analyze button at the top of your page. There are many users who have hundreds of feeds to process or who want to see detailed analytics about their brand reputation, sentiment, etc. – hence the new intelligence features in Netvibes Premium. The new Analyze button lets premium users access these new features, while allowing free users to demo and learn more about these new features. As an existing user, since you’ve already selected all your relevant sources of information, Netvibes Premium can be of immediate benefit to you. Just click the Analyze button to learn more.

We do not put any ads (or even logos!) on our dashboards and we believe this is a simple and unobtrusive way for our users to learn more about our analytics features. We will continue to give users unlimited dashboards, unlimited feeds and apps, and unlimited usage for free – while offering optional intelligence features for those who need it.

I noticed the homepage changed. How do I create a new dashboard?
We updated our homepage since we now have different products for both personal and professional use. It’s still easy to create instant dashboards for free:

1. From your personal dashboard, go to the Dashboard menu and select “Create new dashboard”. This will bring up the 1-click dashboard wizard.

2. Or, from our new homepage, click Get Started, then click “Try it now” on the left. This will also bring you to the 1-click dashboard wizard.

    It might be a good idea to allow trying out of the premium features for free users with some time or other limit. How can I know whether I want to go premium if I can’t even try it out?

    Actually there is a 14 days free trial period. The link is in the blogpsot. ;)

    How do I make a decision, as an agency, for clients when I don’t have any idea of costs for this service of Premium? Why not explain the costs before I go through trial???

    The sign up page says 499 a month. I’m hoping you missed a decimal.

    Why on earth would I sign up for the 14 day trial if you give me no idea of how much the actual cost is after that time?

    You will get more sign ups if you tell us the price in advance.

    Will you have a mobile app for the professional version? or the free version for that matter?

    Is very good i’m gonna try it, thank’s for that

    $500? Every month? Is there a dot missing?! The Netvibes while the only page loading is also currently taking forever to load, I restarted loading to no effect, then while still waiting I opened the BBC News website and played a video which worked just fine. With that speed, it’s hard to justify $500.

    I was expecting for one user on just a few accounts that it might be $5 or $10 per month. This pricing clearly makes it unaffordable for all but large companies. Fortunately there are various brand monitoring services for the price I’ve mentioned, or less.

    14 days is not enough, especially concerning sentiment analysis … You need to first understand how the new dashboards work, then wait to then see if results are valuable … Impossible to do all this in 14 days … seriously.

    Why not making these features free for two months for everybody to generate tractions and with a dedicated blog to help people leverage all new functionalities.

    Anyway, congratulations, the video is great and enticing …

    Looks like a great product! If its really $500 then i must see a lot more to see why its costing this much money though.

    This is a kickass concept, a brand new concept. It won’t be easy for the early days of service using. Maybe William is right — 14 days free trial is not enough for free users.

  12. #12 | Livescore | October 23rd, 2011 at 06:18

    There is a 14 days free trial period.

    $499/month or $49,99/month?

  13. #13 | What a rip off | June 27th, 2013 at 18:10

    $500/month ? Yikes, I will stay away from this gouging site.
