– this is a great free tool which allows you to setup alerts for particular key words, your name, your business name or anything in particular you want to be alerted to. You can set it to automatically send you a notification via email as often as you want when the particular key word you’re monitoring is mentioned on the internet. This is also a great tool to use to keep track of news about your industry of interest, your competitors or key customers. Go to www.google.com/alerts and you will have it set up in minutes.
– this tool will allow you to see how much influence you have on the internet. Go to www.klout.com and you will be able to see how far your network spreads. Your reach is determined by a lot of different factors for each platform ie Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, with the main factors being how many people you reach, how much have they interacted with you online and how often you have been mentioned.
