Is there any difference when using a website marketing team in Sri Lanka compared to working with this inhouse?Should you employ professionals from a website marketing team in Sri Lanka or is it better to use staff in the organization to take care of website marketing at the house?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 website marketing team can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the firm at the local branch office in Sri Lanka.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a website marketing team can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resources usedPutting the work out to a website marketing team 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, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from internal staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the website marketing. The website marketing team knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources necessary to handle the project in a proper and professional 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 website marketing.
Use of own staff in Sri Lanka to manage projects outsourced to the website marketing team
Often, people in the Sri Lanka-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what you might expect from a website marketing team far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company have detailed knowledge about. Although, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the website marketing team. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be thought about.
Good website marketing toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a website marketing team – whether this is handled by local staff in Sri Lanka, 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.
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 Sri Lanka are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
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 website marketing team 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 of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Sri Lanka 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.
