This alert will then be sent to your email.

You can use this to find out:

  • ‘what’ is being said about your website/blog i.e. “http://yoursite.com”
  • Keep up with news on any subject, i.e. “Relationship Marketing

You can set the Result type to:

I am very grateful for having learned this today from Mari Smith in the recorded Relationship Marketing webinar.

Mari Smith’s book “The New Relationship Marketing: How to Build a Large, Loyal, Profitable Network Using the Social Web (affiliate link) has a lot of useful tips and is easy to read.

Event Time Announcer

How to sent people Timezone info for Events

Event Time announcerA lot of times I got an email saying that the event is PST or some other Timezone.
In New Zealand we are not familiar with all these variations and sometimes it took me a while to find out when that time was for me.

Thanks to Mari Smith’s link to her free Webinar on Relationship Marketing.

I found out how to sent a link to people which sends them to the world clock with all the timezones specific to the time of the Event.

Here is how you can do this (for free):

Go to: Time and Date

Click on Word Clock and then click on Event Announcer

this will take you to the Set up page

Enter you time etc. and click ‘Show results’.

Here is an example of a ‘mock up’ event:

Time announcer results

This is one of the easiest way to know the time when the event is on anywhere in the world.
I hope this helps other people too.
