Running a balanced reputation protection campaign can be a lot of fun. It can also be very frustrating.
In this post I will try to give you inspiration with new and fresh approaches to keep the fun going.
Managing a interesting reputation protection campaign is not always easy when you need to come up with ways to market your company. A well managed reputation protection campaign captures the target market’s attention. You need to keep the target markets fascinated by the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
Use of internal staff in Sharm El Sheikh to manage projects outsourced to the reputation protection specialistOften, people in the Sharm El Sheikh-department can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you can expect from a reputation protection specialist far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company 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 protection specialist. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be considered.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a reputation protection specialist can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resourcesPutting the work out to a reputation protection specialist 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 reputation protection. The reputation protection specialist 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 and thorough way. It has always been clear to me that it is you who know your service 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.
Is there any difference when using a reputation protection specialist in Sharm El Sheikh compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?
Good reputation protection toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a reputation protection specialist – whether this is handled by local staff in Sharm El Sheikh, 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.
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 Sharm El Sheikh 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 protection specialist 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 Sharm El Sheikh are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
