Is there any difference when using a reputation protection company in Drammen compared to working with this inhouse?Should you hire experts from a reputation protection company in Drammen or is it better to use someone in the firm to handle reputation protection in the firm?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a reputation protection company can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Drammen.
Use of internal staff in Drammen to manage projects outsourced to the reputation protection companyOften, people in the Drammen-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a reputation protection company far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company 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 reputation protection company. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be given some thoughts.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a reputation protection company 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 protection company 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 inhouse staff. If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from company staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the reputation protection. The reputation protection company knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project properly and professionally. 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 protection.

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 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 reputation protection company 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.

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