Google Alerts and How to keep track of what people say about you online



I help bands and small businesses with their social media accounts – not just the day to day posting and updates, but I also assist by planning out campaigns and long-term strategies to grow my clients’ online fanbase and ultimately their income!

When you sign up on my mailing list, I will be emailing you free social media tips for running your band or business online accounts.  I will share my experiences and help lead you to your own online success.  A lot of tips and tricks will be directly related to the music industry, since that is where my focus is – but many of these tips will apply to any type of business promotion.

The social media world is always changing and I will do my best to help you promote yourself online and stay ahead of the game!  Please feel free to respond directly to this email with any questions you may have.

Action Item

Google Alerts.  You may already search for yourself, band, or business name on Google, but why not make it even easier?  A “Google Alert” is a search term that you set up to be emailed directly to you when someone mentions that search term online.  Go one step further and set up an Alert for the name of a specific product you sell or the name of your last album.  Google will email you as often as you like – I set mine up for once a day.  You might already be familiar with Google Alerts, but it is important to refine your search terms to keep them up to date and relevant.

*Here’s an example of how to use Google Alerts:  If you are in a band and have a big festival coming up, you may want to even enter that as a Google Alert search term.  Why is this helpful?  There may be local publications or blogs covering this fest that you are not aware of.  Setting up an alert to be emailed to you is like having your own personal research assistant sending you articles that may be useful for you to post on your social networks, in turn giving you more cross promotional opportunities!

Get started right now by clicking on the link below and setting up a Google Alert today.  You will have to have a Google account and sign in to set this up:


I will feature bands or businesses in this section, please just reply to this email if you are interested in being featured. The featured band of the week: Monsterworks

From their facebook page: Monsterworks has unashamedly stolen from a ludicrous number of metal sub-genres to create a truly unique beast. Be it thrash, death, old-school, prog or black metal, there is something for everyone. Expect wailing guitars, wailing screams and a pounding rhythm section, delivered by a four-man war of sound. Surely they can’t be serious? IMAGE IS NOTHING; METAL IS EVERYTHING.

Congrats to Monsterworks, as today is the long-awaited digital release of “Man: Instincts” which is available for FREE download here:
