Sure, you’ve heard of Google Alerts. In fact, I’ve been using it for years to monitor my brand. But now I’ve found something that I like even better. It’s called Mention and it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Here are three reasons why you need to jump on this bandwagon now!
1. It doesn’t cost anything. So that is always a plus.
2. It monitors where your name appears out in cyberspace…if it pops up on a website no matter how obscure, Mention finds it.
3. It even will tell you if your name pops up on social networking sites!
OK, I know I was only supposed to give you three reasons but here are a few more…
Think of how you could use this in your job search!? You could not only monitor your online image/brand by staying up-to-date on where your name appears in cyberspace but you can also monitor positions and new job openings as they get listed. (Does that mean you are one step ahead of the curve? I think so!)
Another great feature is that you can login to the dashboard to see the list as it is constantly updated in real time OR even better you can have a daily e-mail sent to you that lists all the times you’ve been mentioned in the past 24 hours. That’s my favorite part.
And just so you know, I’m not getting any kickbacks for sharing this info it’s just my honest opinion about a pretty awesome website. It’s definitely worth checking out.
