Is there any difference when using a influence marketing agent in Stavanger compared to working with this inhouse?Should you employ professionals from a influence marketing agent in Stavanger or is it better to use internal resources in the organization to handle influence marketing in the firm?The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thoughtful way. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a influence marketing agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Stavanger.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a influence marketing agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resourcesPutting the work out to a influence marketing agent 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. 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 influence marketing agent knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources necessary to handle the project in a responsible and thorough way. It has always been clear to me that it is you who know your service 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 influence marketing.
Use of own staff in Stavanger to manage projects outsourced to the influence marketing agent
Often, people in the Stavanger-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what is reasonable to expect from a influence marketing agent 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 influence marketing agent. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be discussed.
Good influence marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a influence marketing agent – whether this is handled by local staff in Stavanger, 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.
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 Stavanger 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. You can use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Stavanger 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.
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 influence marketing agent you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
