The SEOHive On-boarding Process

We often get asked about how and why our on-boarding process works. It's really important that we follow this process that we have considered and simplified over a long period of time.

The purpose of this process is to ensure that we have all the tools and cornerstones in place to build a lasting and effective SEO strategy for your clients – and ultimately demonstrate major value to them so that you can build serious recurring revenue in your agency.

Every website is different, and comes to us in different condition. To make sure everything is super clear though, here's the general workflow we go through during the 14-day onboarding process.

    Register your client website

    We're delighted that you think SEOHive is a good fit for your agency and your clients... We're excited to get your websites onboarded and start demonstrating value!

    Firstly, it's vitally important that every website is onboarded onto our systems so we can track everything properly and communicate with you efficiently.

    You'll receive instructions on this via email (or through your dashboard if you already have other websites with us).

    Audits and Testing

    Before we get cracking on improving things, it's important that we record the starting point. We do this by undertaking a full SEO audit of every website and sending you the results! We also do a speed and security test too!

    Once this is complete, we then upgrade a few things in the back end of your website so it's ready for us to start our pathway work.

    Depending on the state your site arrived to us in, these base-upgrades can often have bring some quick improvements. Low-hanging fruit, if you will.

    Pathway On-boarding

    Now we know the website is set up correctly, we need to gather the information we need for the pathway(s) you've selected. 

    We'll send you a form for more information and ask you to submit it back to us.

    Keyword Research

    Regardless of which pathway(s) you've selected, we always need to understand the keywords critical to the success of the website, and the user intent that goes with it. 

    We carry this process out and send it through for you to review - you can then add, edit, or amend as necessary.

    This is the final piece we need... Now we can get going with your pathways!

    Day 15 & onwards – Pathways

    That's it we're live and proactively working on your client's website! 

    We will guide you through the processes for each pathway you've selected and report back on what's been done.

    In certain circumstances, we may need additional information from you, and we'll contact you through your dashboard so we can keep track of everything. 

Our 14-day onboarding process has proven successful many times, but like most good things in life, your results may vary. We politely ask that you have Google Analytics and Search Console access ready (you will need to share it with us) as well as access to the website's backend itself.

We specialize in WordPress websites, but are happy to work on most platforms, such as, but not limited to Shopify, Wix, Squarespace and more. Feel free to contact us with any additional queries.
