Creating a digital marketing campaigns can be a rewarding experience, but it can also create frustration.

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 digital marketing campaign right is not always easy when you need to come up with ideas to market your company.
A good digital 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.


The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a serious way. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a digital marketing manager can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Zimbabwe.

The project you are thinking of setting out to a digital marketing manager can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources used

Putting the work out to a digital marketing manager 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 organization.


Is there any difference when using a digital marketing manager in Zimbabwe compared to working with this inhouse?

Should you employ specialists from a digital marketing manager in Zimbabwe or is it better to use someone in the organization to take care of digital marketing in the firm?




If you already have limited resources, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from internal staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the digital marketing. The digital marketing manager knows that these things require a lot of attention and dedication and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a proper and professional way.

Use of own staff in Zimbabwe to manage projects outsourced to the digital marketing manager


Often, people in the Zimbabwe-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a digital marketing manager far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company know about. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the digital marketing manager. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be considered.

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 digital marketing.

Good digital marketing tools

There are some things you need to be aware of when using a digital marketing manager – whether this is handled by your department in Zimbabwe, or centrally at the 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.com

Majestic 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 Zimbabwe 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.

Google Alerts

To 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 Zimbabwe are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.


Ranks.nl

Ranks.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 digital marketing manager you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
