It’s important to know what people are saying about your business, products and services.

- Is someone using your photo on social media without your knowledge?
- Has someone left a negative review?
- Has a Blogger mentioned you in their post?
Wouldn’t it be nice to receive alerts each time your Brand name is being searched or mentioned?
