Is there any difference when using a reputation management professional in Gothenburg compared to working with this internally?Should you employ experts from a reputation management professional in Gothenburg or is it better to use someone in the firm 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 professional can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Gothenburg.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a reputation management professional can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resources usedPutting the work out to a reputation management 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 company. 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 to handling the project. The reputation management 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 responsible and thorough manner. It has always been clear to me 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 professional – whether this is handled by your department in Gothenburg, 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.
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 Gothenburg 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.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 professional 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 Gothenburg are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
