One thing I love to do with any business I own is keep an eye on what my competition is doing. 

I do this because I want to know what they are offering or changes they are making or new programs they are implementing that could take business away from me.

A great site called ChangeDetection.com provides page change monitoring and notification services to internet users worldwide.  Anyone can use their service to monitor any website page for changes.  All you do is fill out a form and they’ll create a change log for that page and alert you by email when they detect a change.  The best part…it’s free!
Another great tool that most of us know about is Google AlertsCreate an account, type in the words you want Google to keep an eye on and they’ll sent you emails, with links, that show you anything that talks about that topic, company, or name.

Keeping a watchful eye is not only helpful but also a must if you want to beat your competition.

He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes. Do you think so?
