CustomScoop Trial Passes the Test

I’ve been meaning to share with you my experience when I tried CustomScoop’s free trial clipping service. CustomScoop provides online blog and media monitoring service. Listeners to the New Comm Road and For Immediate Release podcasts can receive a free trial.

I took advantage of this offer in October when my organization released some research. In addition to the trial, I also use Nexis and Google Alerts to monitor media coverage, and Technorati and Google blog search to monitor blog mentions.

The results? CustomScoop did better than all the others combined.

Based on the search terms I had defined, I received an e-mail listing of the current day’s news and blog coverage every morning. Nexis didn’t find any of them, even though some included major Texas newspapers. Google Alerts sent about half of the newspaper stories CustomScoop found. And the ones from Google usually came a day later.

I definitely recommend you check them out. Plus, there are some freebies on their web site.
