Why Netvibes is becoming a B2B company

7 Oct

For a long time, Netvibes was my favorite web product. They really took aggregation to another level, and I especially enjoyed their dashboard as the news junky that I am.

But today, the reality is that tablet home pages are replacing this B2c product. But Netvibes has entered another space; a B2B space, leveraging its dashboard technology and applying it to b2b intelligence.


In july 2011, the company released Social Pack, a social media analytics solution.

This week, Netvibes is hitting the market with a $499-per-year Premium otpion including mobile optimization but also more intelligence features for reputation managment. As a brand, you can monitor negative and positive comments going around the web about you, and get a quick snapshots of trends with charts.

The truth is that it matters immensely. One customer in two or more relies on the opinion of Internet users.

When you have a web product that is very well-positionned and relevant for a given target, the possibilities are endless. And that is exactly what Manpacks is doing.

A lot of early-stage Sillicon valley companies don’t work enough on their brand identity and their positioning when they get started. Manpacks is a start up that doesn’t seem to have this problem.

The logo speaks for itself. There is a lot of monetization that can take place when you do such a good job of connecting with a specific audience. The male audience from the Internet generation is a highly engaged one too.
