Creating articles is a rewarding experience.
It’s important to add rich media, such as images and video.
However, avoid media that takes a long time to load.
Creating a digital marketing campaigns can be a rewarding experience, but it can also create frustration.
In this post I will try to give you inspiration with new and fresh approaches to have fun while working on it.
Use of your own employees in Belgium to manage projects outsourced to the digital marketing teamOften, people in the Belgium-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a digital marketing team far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization 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 team. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be discussed.
If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from in-house staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the digital marketing. The digital marketing team knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a professional way.
It has always been clear to me that it is you who know your product 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.
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 digital marketing team can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Belgium.
Is there any difference when using a digital marketing team in Belgium compared to working with this inhouse?Should you hire experts from a digital marketing team in Belgium or can one just as well use someone in the company to handle digital marketing in the company?
The project you are thinking of setting out to a digital marketing team can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources used
Good digital marketing tools
There are some things you need to be aware of when using a digital marketing team – whether this is handled by local staff in Belgium, 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.
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 digital marketing team you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. Use this tool to find out everything you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Belgium 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 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 Belgium are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
