Running a well set up outreach operation can 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 keep the fun going.
Getting the outreach campaign right can sometimes be difficult when you need to come up with ideas to market your company. When done correctly, a well managed outreach campaign captures the target market’s attention. You need to keep the target markets interested in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
Use of your own staff in Paris to manage projects outsourced to the outreach expertOften, people in the Paris-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you can expect from a outreach expert far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization have detailed knowledge about. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the outreach expert. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be agreed about before proceeding.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a outreach expert can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resourcesPutting the work out to a outreach expert 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 dedicated to handling the project. The outreach expert knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a responsible 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 outreach.
Is there any difference when using a outreach expert in Paris compared to having the staff working on this internally?
Should you employ professionals from a outreach expert in Paris or can one just as well use staff in the company to take care of outreach in the organization?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. In this article I will highlight some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a outreach expert is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Paris.
Good outreach toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a outreach expert – whether this is handled by your department in Paris, 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 outreach expert 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 Paris 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 Paris 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.
