Running a balanced sem operation 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.
Making a interesting sem campaign is not always easy when you need to come up with ways to market your company. When done correctly, a well managed sem campaign captures the audience’s attention. You need to keep the target markets interested in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a sem bureau can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resourcesPutting the work out to a sem bureau 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 in-house staff without adequate resources to handling the project. The sem bureau knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources necessary to handle the project in a responsible 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 sem.
Is there any difference when using a sem bureau in Stavanger compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?Should you hire experts from a sem bureau in Stavanger or is it better to use staff at the house to handle sem in the company?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 sem bureau is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Stavanger.
Use of your own employees in Stavanger to manage projects outsourced to the sem bureau
Good sem toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a sem bureau – whether this is handled by local staff in Stavanger, or centrally at the head office. 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 sem bureau 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. Use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Stavanger 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 Stavanger are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
