Running a balanced digital performance marketing operation can potentially 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 keep the fun going.
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 performance marketing company is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Albania.
Use of own staff in Albania to manage projects outsourced to the digital performance marketing companyOften, people in the Albania-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what is reasonable to expect from a digital performance marketing company far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization 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 performance marketing company. 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 company staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the project. The digital performance marketing company knows that these things require a lot of attention and dedication and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources necessary to handle the project properly and professionally.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a digital performance marketing company can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resourcesPutting the work out to a digital performance marketing company 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.
Is there any difference when using a digital performance marketing company in Albania compared to having the staff working on this internally?
I have always been of the opinion 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 performance marketing.
Good digital performance marketing tools
There are some things you need to be aware of when using a digital performance marketing company – whether this is handled by local staff in Albania, 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.
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 company you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
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 Albania 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. Use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Albania 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.
