Handling a balanced content marketing operation can be a lot of fun. It can also be very frustrating.
In this post I will try to inspire you to come up with new and fresh approaches to have fun while working on it.
Getting the content marketing campaign right can at times be frustrating when you need to come up with ideas to market your company. A well managed content marketing campaign captures the reader’s attention. You need to keep the target markets immersed in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
Use of own staff in Helsinki to manage projects outsourced to the content marketing expertOften, people in the Helsinki-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you might expect from a content marketing expert far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization have detailed knowledge about. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the content marketing expert. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be agreed about before proceeding.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a content marketing expert can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resourcesPutting the work out to a content marketing expert 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 company. 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 dedicated to handling the content marketing. The content marketing expert knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a responsible and thorough way. 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 content marketing.
Is there any difference when using a content marketing expert in Helsinki compared to having the staff working on this internally?
Good content marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a content marketing expert – whether this is handled by local staff in Helsinki, or centrally at the head office. 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.
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 Helsinki are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. You can use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Helsinki 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 a bunch of 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 content marketing expert you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
