Monitor your business, your competition on the web.
Keeping updated is always a challenge, espically if you run a small business or a non profit. The web is a great resource, but sometimes it can be overwellmiing to keep up to date.
Google has a great tool that you can use to monitor items on the web and automatically get an email update when a new item appears in your search. Its called Google Alerts. I use it to monitor searches for “Bay Business Group” and every timeÂ a new itemÂ appears about Bay Business Group, I get notified via email. Other uses include monitoring competitors, industry news, a hot topic, or just keeping track of your “internet reputation”
