How to Use Google Alerts to Grow Your Business – Podcast Episode 140

by | Aug 23, 2021 | Podcast | 0 comments

Hey fabulous listener!  I know it’s not Thursday but I’m popping in over the next few weeks because I’ve decided that I have a lot to say!

My parents always knew I had lots to say, and apparently, they were right!

You see, this isn’t going to be my normal long(ish) episode but a short sharp one because I think I share so many great tips and tricks on social media that can really help you simplify your business and grow, but the darn algorithms don’t let everyone see them – perhaps that’s you!

So, I’m choosing some of my best social content, as voted by you (or perhaps by people just like you that have liked, commented and shared my social posts).

So a podcast with the best of the best social content on them.

I’m only here for a few minutes – so let’s get into it.

Do you have Google Alerts set up for your business?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don’t, then you should!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Google Alerts basically monitor the web for interesting new content – so pretty much whatever you want it to monitor!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then, when Google finds something, it sends you an email alert with the link and some information.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So why would you need it in your business?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, the Google alerts I have set up are:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❓ My name – Jenn Donovan, and my business name – so if there’s anything written about me, I find out about it! Like someone mentioned me in their press article or blog etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is how I found out I was mentioned by David Littleproud MP in his press release for International Rural Women’s Day “as a strong woman leader” – that was pretty special! Probably wouldn’t have seen it otherwise!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❓ I have “Spend With Us” and “Buy From a Bush Business” also as google alerts – for the same reason. We send lots of media releases over time and they are picked up at different stages, I’d never know they were published sometimes if not for Google Alerts!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❓ Others I have including “keynote speaker” “NSW business awards” and a few others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The idea is that Google is my very own little PR Media Secretary out there looking for opportunities for me and letting me know when I get them!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s like MAGIC!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don’t have them set up, do it today – if not just your name and your business name. You’ll be surprised what you see, I guarantee it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you set them up – you need a Gmail account and then just google – Google Alerts! Easy peasy!⠀⠀⠀

Ok, that’s it – see you next time.  Hope you enjoyed the tips on google alerts!.

Remember, there’s no point in dreaming small.
