Get notified in Slack when your startup is mentioned online

#4 Product of the WeekFebruary 16, 2015

Notify is a product that informs you via slack whenever someone mentions your startup name, competitor, event or any topic that you are interested in on Social Media.

I've been using Mention for several months to receive daily notifications when Product Hunt or my name is mentioned online. I like Notify's Slack-integrated approach, which serves as more of an ambient notification feed for these alerts and may inspire more team conversation than individual emails.

@rrhoover Big fan of Mention - very useful.
Ross Currie@rossdcurrie · Founder, CrowdLoot
@rrhoover Now that I know this I'm going to start mentioning your name in really odd corners of the Internet. I'm also going to signup for Mention

@rrhoover Thanks ! I love this slack integration, it's a great idea, a nice approach to media monitoring at the basic level. Now if you do want to have Mention into Slack, well there is an easy way with Zapier : Full details here :

@rrhoover @_jamesmundy Awesome to hear, James. Would be great to learn more about how you're using Mention. :)

@shannnonb at the moment, just to keep track of people talking about our app on social media and in blog posts. Mention has picked up a lot of stuff that Google Alerts has missed.
Andreas Klinger@andreasklinger · Tech at Product Hunt 💃
@rrhoover @guillaumecabane No worries. We are using the slack integration via zapier. Nobody at Product Hunt likes email :)
Kristin Adams@ka23a · Founder, Socialie
@rrhoover Do you use this for Twitter mentions as well? You do seem to respond/fave every mention :) I'm (selfishly) curious how you handle monitoring for most important mentions on Twitter.

Looks great. However, seems like number of sources you can get notification is quite restricted. I recommend you try which monitors whole web + provides easy to use analytics like top influencers, most interactive pieces of content, etc. :)

Really interesting product, love that it integrate with Slack that way you don't have to open another tab for Mention. Unfortunately, you are limited to using Slack, the only downfall

@karlclement yeah i can see where that would be annoying--though maybe its something that can be iterated out in the next version

@karlclement @adammarx13 I don't really know if I would want it to be iterated out--I enjoy using Slack and don't mind it running in the background, sending me notifications when it's important. I think this does beat Mention, both in terms of the number of comments, and in terms of keeping on top of things.

@karlclement Hey Karl! If it's helpful you can also integrate Mention with Slack or HipChat and other messaging services using to be notified when mentioned! Happy to discuss more.

@karlclement Hey, Thanks for hunting us in the first place, you might integrate with other messaging apps or even other social media tools in the near future, but before that we need to make sure that the users on Slack love it and they have what they really need. before starting a new integration. did you check our latest updates.. will be happy to receive your valuable feedback . Thanks again :)
