Is there any difference when using a internet marketing agency in Burundi compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?Should you hire experts from a internet marketing agency in Burundi or can one just as well use someone in the organization to take care of internet marketing at the house?The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thorough way. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a internet marketing agency is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the company at the local branch office in Burundi.
Use of own staff in Burundi to manage projects outsourced to the internet marketing agencyOften, people in the Burundi-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a internet marketing agency 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 internet marketing agency. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be considered.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a internet marketing agency can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources used
Putting the work out to a internet marketing agency 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 in-house staff without adequate resources to handling the internet marketing. The internet marketing agency knows that these things require a lot of attention and dedication and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources needed to handle the project properly and professionally. I have always been of the opinion 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 internet marketing.
Good internet marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a internet marketing agency – whether this is handled by local staff in Burundi, 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 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 internet marketing agency 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 Burundi 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 you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Burundi 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.
