Running a balanced inbound 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 have fun while working on it.
Getting the inbound marketing campaign right can sometimes be difficult when you need to come up with ideas to market your company. A well managed inbound marketing campaign captures the reader’s attention. You need to keep the audiences interested in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a inbound marketing manager can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resources usedPutting the work out to a inbound 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 inhouse staff. If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from internal staff without adequate resources to handling the project. The inbound marketing manager knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources needed to handle the project in a proper and 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 inbound marketing.

Good inbound marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a inbound marketing manager – whether this is handled by local staff in Ethiopia, 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.
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 Ethiopia are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
Ranks.nlRanks.nl has a number 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 inbound marketing manager 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 of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Ethiopia 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.
