Is there any difference when using a internet marketing agent in France compared to working with this internally?Should you employ professionals from a internet marketing agent in France or can one just as well use internal resources in the organization to take care of internet marketing in the firm?The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thorough way. In this article I will discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a internet marketing agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff at the house at the local branch office in France.
Use of your own employees in France to manage projects outsourced to the internet marketing agentOften, people in the France-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you can expect from a internet marketing agent far away or what the people at the headquarters of your firm 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 agent. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be thought of.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a internet marketing agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources
Good internet marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a internet marketing agent – whether this is handled by local staff in France, 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 a bunch 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 agent 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 France 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 France 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.
