You get a lifetime free account with the option to upgrade to (or downgrade from) a Premium account as you wish. Premium users get a number of additional benefits, including price protection (if the fees increase, you are locked into the price in effect when you upgraded) and immediate access to new features.
The Silver Level is in between the Premium and the Regular (free) level, allowing you to enter up to 1,000 contacts and 1,000 target companies. Premium allows you to add an unlimited number of contacts and companies for just $9.95 and get all the available features. Here’s a summary of each level (you can see a side-by-side comparison here)
Regular (Free): We designed this to be more powerful than a job search spreadsheet. You can track an unlimited number of job postings, whether you find them on Monster, through face-to-face networking, etc. You can track up to 250 network contacts and 75 target companies and post up to 10 log entries on each of those records. You get a lot of tools and some reports. Remember, when you first login you get 14 days of premium services for free.
Silver ($5/month): You get all of the Regular features PLUS an additional 750 network contacts and an additional 925 target companies. This is an intermediate level designed to give those who are more budget-challenged an opportunity to use JibberJobber more effectively in their immediate job search.
Premium ($9.95/month): The floodgates are open and you get all kinds of cool stuff. My favorite premium feature is the action items e-mailed to me, so I don’t have to login to JibberJobber to see what I have coming up. No wait, my favorite premium feature is the ability to import/export my data, so I can keep all my LinkedIn contacts, Cardscan contacts (buying one soon), and Outlook contacts on JibberJobber. No wait, my favorite premium feature is that I can use the Get Contact List to export my contacts based on a number of things, like tags or categories. No wait, my favorite premium feature is that there are no limits on number of records I put in, or number of log entries I have… you get the point, right? This level is optimal for those who are either serious about their job search or not in a job search at all but very relationship-oriented (or career management oriented).
You want to know what may become the best premium feature as of yet? The Outlook plug-in, which should hopefully, be in beta in the next few weeks. Why would you get a premium account? Here are a few reasons:
The premium version e-mails you your action items. I don’t expect you to login to JibberJobber to see what you have going on today… but I do suspect you live out of your e-mail. As a premium subscriber you can choose when you get the e-mail – two days before it’s due? Cool. Five days? No problem. Twenty days… on the day… whenever? It’s up to you!
The premium version has NO limits on number of records stored. Currently, anyone who subscribes as a premium user can have as many target companies, network contacts and documents (resumes, reference letters, etc.) in the system.
The premium version allows you to import and export. Have your contact lists elsewhere? Target companies in a spreadsheet? You can simply import them into JibberJobber. And if you are concerned about backups (more than what we do, which is a nightly tape backup), you can export your data as often as you please.
The premium version has a “Get Contact List” option. This allows you to get your contacts in a variety of formats, including .csv, .html, vcard, etc. Want to send an e-mail to just a segment of your list? No problem, the Get Contact List was made for that… As a bonus, anyone who is a premium user, with a one-year-or-more subscription, can get any of the CEO Training webinars for 50% off… anytime!
Trying to figure out LinkedIn or Facebook? You can get the webinars at just $24.95, instead of $49.95.
Want to get a book out and enhance your personal brand, develop yourself as a subject matter expert and thought leader? Write Your Book has gotten great reviews, and you will be able to get it for just $24.95.
Have a great blog that no one reads? This two hour special recording of Blog Marketing 201 – 501 will be just $24.95 if you take advantage of this special.
So go login now, upgrade for $99.95, get two years of premium features, and then head over to the CEO Training site and get some webinars!
