Online Tools – Your Own Research Assistant – Google Alerts
One online tool that I feel every business owner should have in place is Google Alerts. Google Alerts is a tool from Google that will search the web for you and when new content is found with the search term/keyword you are looking for Google will let you know. This tool can save you a lot of time. No longer do you need to perform searches on your own, Google will find the information and let you know when it is there.
This can allow you to stay on top of your field/niche because when new information is available you know!
There are many options available with Google Alerts that will allow you to set the time you search for information as well as how you receive it. Below you will find links to the Google Alert Tool and links to the Help and Getting Started Section for Google Alerts:
