Step 3: Review and Refine Your Alerts

Once you have set up your alerts, it's important to review them regularly and refine them as needed. As you begin to receive alerts, you may find that you are getting too many or too few results. This is the time to adjust your search terms or media sources to ensure that you are getting the information you need.

Step 4: Take Action on Your Alerts

Finally, it's important to take action on the information you receive through your media monitoring alerts. Use the information you gather to inform your public relations strategy, identify potential issues or crises, and monitor your competitors. You may also want to use your media monitoring alerts to engage with journalists, bloggers, or social media influencers who are talking about your brand.

In conclusion, media monitoring is a crucial component of any effective public relations strategy. By setting up alerts using Propel, you can stay on top of media coverage of your brand and take action on the insights you gain. By following these steps, you can create effective media monitoring alerts that help you stay ahead of the curve and build a strong, positive reputation for your brand!
