Push Technology Resources

Did you know there are services available to automate your proactive prospecting strategies?  What I mean is this:  You set up an alert on the names, issues, companies you want to track and the work is done for you daily so you can sit back & wait for the results to pour in.  It's really that simple.  Some of the services are free and some are fee-based.  My article this month highlights a sampling of what you'll find out there.

Do you have a favorite I didn't mention here?  I'd love to hear about it.  Visit my Facebook page and leave me a comment.

Happy Prospecting!
