Small Business Computing has a great review of a free biz tool.
If you currently use Google alerts as a research tool or to be notified whenever your business is mentioned online, then you’ll love FiltrBox.com. It’s kind of like Google Alerts on steroids.
Now the downside to Google Alerts is that it only gives you results from the Web. FiltrBox on the other hand, searches offline publications including major newspapers and magazines, as well as blogs and even Twitter.
FiltrBox is very easy to set up, they’ll send you a daily briefing e-mail, which is very nicely laid out and easy to read.
Now what’s interesting is that this kind of clipping service used to cost many thousands of dollars a month, but it’s now completely free. There’s also a premium paid version of the system available that gives you unlimited search terms and other benefits.
