Is there any difference when using a outreach team in Alta compared to having the staff working on this internally?Should you employ experts from a outreach team in Alta or can one just as well use someone in the organization to handle outreach in the company?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. In this article I will discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a outreach team is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Alta.
Use of own staff in Alta to manage projects outsourced to the outreach teamOften, people in the Alta-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what is reasonable to expect from a outreach team far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company are aware of. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the outreach team. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be thought of.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a outreach team can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources used
Good outreach toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a outreach team – whether this is handled by your department in Alta, 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 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 outreach team you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. Use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Alta 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.
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 Alta are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
