This is something that must be carefully considered before making a decision on how to proceed with digital performance marketing.
The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thoughtful way.

If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from in-house staff without adequate resources to handling the project. The digital performance marketing agent knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources necessary to handle the project in a professional way.

Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be thought about.

Good digital performance marketing tools
There are some things you need to be aware of when using a digital performance marketing agent – whether this is handled by local staff in South Africa, 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.
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 performance marketing agent 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. You can use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in South Africa 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 South Africa are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
