Best Time For Marketing

time time timeEnacting our New Year’s resolutions to build business requires discipline, resources, and especially the knowledge about what tactics work during specific times of the year. Here’s a tip in my recent blog on the best time of the year to reach new clients. May this bring you more success than you’d ever imagined!


Google Alerts
Most of us probably have our Google alerts set for topics we need to monitor for our clients, right? Mine have been set for years: I track “marketing” and “optimizing” to ensure I am up to date on news and recent developments. Yet recently, a colleague pointed out to me something so obvious that I had one of those “Sheesh, why didn’t I think of that?!” moments: I could create an alert for my name.

Within three weeks, I discovered all kinds of people writing about me and quoting me, and learned that a San Francisco Chronicle reporter was actually citing me on the topic of marketing for her article. I’d never even known that article had been published after they’d interviewed me! I also discovered that some people had misinformation about my company. But since I’d seen what they’d published online about our agency, I was able to correct the errors.

You can do this too. Go to: and under “search term,” type in your name (or company name). You can set as many alerts as you wish. And yes, it’s free.
