STOP! My inbox is overflowing with emails from PressDisplay
Lately I’ve noticed that a number of PressDisplay users are having problems with their alerts. They set up monitors to search for a keyword or phrase and then panic when their inbox fills up with dozens, if not hundreds, of email alerts saying their keywords were found in all these publications.
Monitors are a double-edged sword. They are amazingly powerful in that they allow you to monitor printed media with just a few clicks. But if you don’t use them wisely, they’ll bite you in the butt by sending you tons of emails that you really didn’t expect.
So I thought I’d do a quick review on Monitors and how to use them effectively. I hope this helps…
Monitors are good. But there is a saying that holds true, “You can have too much of a good thing.” 🙂
Choose your keywords and search criteria wisely and remember to turn off or delete monitors you no longer need through My Monitors interface.
If an email arrives from ND PressDisplay (which for you would be firstname.lastname@example.org), the email goes into a special folder that I call “monitors”.
This allows me to keep them separate from my inbox when I’m doing research and expect to receive a lot of hits on my keywords.
Hope that helps you. Let me know what you think.
