If you’re trying to figure out if SemTasks is for your e-commerce or SAAS business, here is a detailed description of our onboarding and work process.
This process is continuously refined based on our clients feedback to ensure the best experience and results. We’ll keep updating this article from time to time accordingly.
Our Process for Working with SEO Clients
The period from onboarding start to first action items delivered usually lasts 2 to 5 weeks.
The actual duration depends on how booked the SemTasks team is, as well as how decided you are on the details of the engagement.
1. Discovery Call
First we’ll book a 30 min call with you to understand your business goals and make sure your industry is a good fit for our service.
Ideally you would take 15 min to fill up some details in our well structured brief interface.
We’ll discuss the volume and scope of work you need, the relevant duration of the subscription and the ideal length of the sprints, as well as the management style that suits you best.
We will also make sure any process question is addressed and decide next steps, including sending you relevant samples, answers or add-on suggestions.
If we are a bad fit for your needs we’ll also let you know and try to address you to put you in touch with the appropriate firm.
2. Estimate and Work Plan
We’ll generate an estimate and all relevant deliverables and action items, according to your needs and preferences.
You will be able to review estimates and work plans directly in your jikko.co account.
You will approve the subscription of your choice (after necessary adjustment, if any). You will be able to pay a first provision and book your assistant for the chosen starting period.
4. Extended Brief
Context is king!
As soon as you’re ready and any time you want to, you’ll be able to work on our smart brief questions so your Assistant(s) get to know your business and target customers and adjust their work accordingly.
5. Create Backlog
In most cases, one of the first tasks to perform is to audit some of the existing assets and metrics, review the competitive landscape and record relevant action items to be performed in the short term.
You and your team will be able to monitor this backlog and if you like to, contribute to prioritization, problem solving, ideation, etc.
You can also create your own action items, issues or tickets at any time.
6. Launch Sprint
On the chosen date, the sprint will start and your Assistant(s) will start executing the prioritized action items. You’ll be able to monitor the progress as well as the time spent by logging in the agile kanban on jikko.co.
7. Deliver First Action Item
When action items are ready, you’ll see them in the live or review needed column and status of the kanban, depending on their criticality and of your preferred reviewing process.
8. Complete first sprint, Launch next sprint
After 1 week, 2 weeks or 1 month, depending on your chosen Sprint Tempo™, we’ll close and review the elapsed sprint.
Then we’ll plan and launch the next Sprint.
9. Learn & Scale
This is where the power of data driven SEO shines.
Most action items have a Retrospective date. After a few Sprints, those items and experiments will be surfaced by our smart software and your Assistant will look at the datas to understand what worked well and what didn’t work so well.
This analytic work will generate new ideas and guide future decisions and actions, for continuously improving performance, and beautiful hockey-stick charts.
