Is there any difference when using a digital marketing specialist in South Africa compared to having the staff working on this internally?Should you hire specialists from a digital marketing specialist in South Africa or is it better to use someone at the house to take care of digital marketing in the organization?
The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thorough way. In this article I will highlight some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a digital marketing specialist is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the company at the local branch office in South Africa.

Use of your own staff in South Africa to manage projects outsourced to the digital marketing specialist
Often, people in the South Africa-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a digital marketing specialist far away or what the people at the headquarters of your firm know about. Although, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the digital marketing specialist. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be given some thought.
Good digital marketing tools
There are some things you need to be aware of when using a digital marketing specialist – whether this is handled by your department in South Africa, 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 South Africa are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.

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.
