Is there any difference when using a search marketing professional in Micronesia compared to having the staff working on this internally?Should you employ specialists from a search marketing professional in Micronesia or can one just as well use someone in the firm to handle search marketing in the company?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 search marketing professional can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Micronesia.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a search marketing 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 search marketing 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 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 to handling the project. The search marketing professional knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources necessary 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 search marketing.

Good search marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a search marketing professional – whether this is handled by your department in Micronesia, 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.
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 search marketing professional 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 you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Micronesia 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 Micronesia are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
