What does XING Premium?

XING should bring you to its cost anything. So what are the advantages of a premium account? To answer this question, one must first clarify for themselves what they want or actually on XING expects XING. Who "only sometimes look" wants, who is from friends or former and current colleagues on XING who comes with the basic membership from. Since not quite as many search results are spat (10 instead of 300), but eventually enough.

Interesting is XING, if you have an increased stalking need and if you want to really take advantage of professional service. On the one hand, the service displays its premium members complete information about the visitors of their own XING profile on the other hand, you can represent you much more professional. In addition, only the premium account, even those members offers the opportunity to contact directly and without problems that do not belong to their own contacts. Regular XING contacts can you write at any time. But who is now looking forward on a wonderful opportunity for spamming, which suffered a shock absorber: you can on so-called "non-contact" up to 20 messages per month send.

By the way, little tip: Do you use your XING Premium Membership actually only professionally, you can watch the settle costs for tax purposes! Here, however, you should contact your tax advisor to find out further details.
