When you’re in focus mode and working on something, you don’t want to be constantly checking social media for leads or for research points all day long. Generally speaking, it’s a time suck.
How would you like to be notified when someone tweets about you, your niche, or a special interest topic? You can do that for free with Tweet Alarm.
It’s kind of like Google Alerts, if you’re familiar with those, but it’s for Twitter.
This has lots of potential uses in your virtual assistant toolbox.
You can use it to alert you of conversations that are relevant to the niche you serve, perfect opportunities to join the conversation and be helpful to people in real time.
If you’re like me and forget to even look at Twitter for weeks at a time (even with Hootsuite) it can just be a gentle reminder to get out there and get in the conversation when something comes up that is relevant to your work or personal interests.
