Use of own employees in Melbourne to manage projects outsourced to the reputation management agentOften, people in the Melbourne-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you might expect from a reputation management 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 reputation management agent. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be discussed.
Is there any difference when using a reputation management agent in Melbourne compared to having the staff working on this internally?Should you hire specialists from a reputation management agent in Melbourne or can one just as well use someone at the house to take care of reputation management in the organization?The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thoughtful way. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a reputation management agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Melbourne.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a reputation management agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resources
Putting the work out to a reputation management agent 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 firm. If you already have limited resources, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from company staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the project. The reputation management agent knows that these things require a lot of attention and dedication and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a responsible and thorough 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 reputation management.
Good reputation management toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a reputation management agent – whether this is handled by your department in Melbourne, 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.
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 reputation management agent 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. You can use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Melbourne 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 Melbourne are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
