Is there any difference when using a brand protection agent in Zambia compared to working with this inhouse?Should you employ professionals from a brand protection agent in Zambia or is it better to use internal resources at the house to handle brand protection in the organization?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a brand protection agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff at the house at the local branch office in Zambia.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a brand protection agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resources usedPutting the work out to a brand protection agent can certainly pay off, but it is still important that there are available resources that can handle this in a proper way on the part of the firm. If you already have limited resources, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from in-house staff without adequate resources to handling the brand protection. The brand protection agent knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources necessary to handle the project properly and professionally. It has always been clear to me that it is you who know your service and your market best, so if you have the resources needed, it is definitely the best thing to do it yourself. This is something that must be carefully considered before making a decision on how to proceed with brand protection.
Use of internal staff in Zambia to manage projects outsourced to the brand protection agent
Good brand protection toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a brand protection agent – whether this is handled by local staff in Zambia, or centrally at the corporate headquarter. Below is a handy checklist of things you need to think about, as well as the best tools you can use for either free or commercial tools where free alternatives are not available or significantly inferior to the commercial ones.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. You can use this tool to find out everything you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Zambia are doing, or what national and international competitors are up to. Links to your website and subpages are crucial to your search engine rankings, so this is important to keep tabs on.
Ranks.nlRanks.nl has many professional SEO tools that I can really recommend. One of the tools I use most is Page Analyzer. With this tool, you can check keyword density on each subpage of your domain to optimize for keywords or phrases. If the brand protection agent you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
Google AlertsTo be on top of things, it is important to know what happens as early as possible. Google Alerts sends you an email every time someone mentions the words and phrases you specify. This can be anything from trademarks that are important to you, people of interest or general words and phrases that are important to your business. You can have alerts for all employees, freelancers you use, your trademarks including websites you run and words and phrases you focus on. All of this gives you a good overview of what is being talked about that matters internally. Google’s notification is free to use and helps you to be early in terms of being on top of what your competitors in Zambia are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
