Google Alerts are emails sent to you based on the search terms you have asked Google to find for you. Google will send you the links to the information that matches the topic or search terms you are interested in.
Google alerts allow you to specify which type of information should be included in the search results, such as Blogs, News, Videos, and Groups etc. Additionally, you will have a chance to schedule how often you would like to receive the alerts. This tool can be very valuable to your coaching business.
Here are 3 top ways you can use Google Alerts:
You can set up a Google Alert for any topic that you are researching and want to know more about. The alerts will keep you informed and also save you a lot of time.
Manage Your Reputation
You can find out who is talking about you or your business online by using Google Alerts. Set up an alert so that you will be aware each time you or your business name is mentioned online.
Monitor Your Competition
Google alerts can help you stay ahead of your competition. By adding your competitors’ name (s) to your Google Alerts you will be informed of changes that they are making. Having knowledge of their new products and service offerings can help you to strategize and remain competitive.
