Managing a good internet marketing campaign is not always easy when you need to come up with ideas to market your company. A well managed internet marketing campaign captures the target market’s attention. You need to keep the target markets fascinated by the story, and they will continue to read if done right.

Is there any difference when using a internet marketing professional in Somalia compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?

Should you employ experts from a internet marketing professional in Somalia or is it better to use staff in the company 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 highlight some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a internet marketing professional is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the company at the local branch office in Somalia.

The project you are thinking of setting out to a internet marketing professional can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources

Putting the work out to a internet marketing professional 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 organization. If you already have limited resources, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from internal staff without adequate resources to handling the internet marketing. The internet marketing professional knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources necessary to handle the project in a proper and professional way. 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 internet marketing.

Use of internal staff in Somalia to manage projects outsourced to the internet marketing professional

Often, people in the Somalia-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you might expect from a internet marketing professional far away or what the people at the headquarters of your firm are aware of. Although, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the internet marketing professional. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be given some thought.

Good internet marketing tools

There are some things you need to be aware of when using a internet marketing professional – whether this is handled by local staff in Somalia, 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.

Majestic.com

Majestic 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 Somalia 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.nl

Ranks.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 internet marketing professional you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.

Google Alerts

To 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 Somalia are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
