Three Ways to Use Google AlertsNovember 24, 2009
I use Google Alerts to:
1 – Track the appearance of my name on the Internet. Anytime something appears anywhere with my name in it, I want to be notified. This allows me to quickly comment on a blog post that mentions me.
2. Track topics that I should be commenting on and aware of – if someone creates a post on Visionary Leadership, I am notified and have the chance to respond.
3. Track clients. I have put in the professional expertise and names of all my current clients. I am in the loop on news that breaks, and often the first to notify a client of relevant items as they emerge.
The emails I get are routed into a special mailbox so that I can sit and scan through them at my leisure.
