SEO Retainers Overview Meeting 9.17.2018


  • Project Lead begins with the Project Intake and Kickoff Process, step 8. Send an email to the customer with the agenda for the External Customer Kickoff Meeting.
  • Project Lead runs External Customer Kickoff Meeting by following the Kickoff Call Guide and referencing SEO-specific sections below.
  • SEO manager creates Databox dashboards following standard process and template outlined here.
  • SEO manager produces an initial SEO Audit (PDF). The initial audit is done not only to establish a baseline of where the customer is at today, but also to give us a checklist of priority items to focus on as we dive into optimizing the site. 
  • The audit turns into a wishlist/plan that allows us to prioritize our efforts as ‘critical fixes’ all the way down to ‘nice to have.’ We place focus on fixing anything that’s causing harm to the site or creating frustration for users, then move onto less critical updates from there.
  • Retainers include regular check-ins with the dedicated manager and the relevant SEO/UX/CRO experts.
  • We hold a review with the customer of recommended updates and get approval/align with their own team’s priorities before making changes.
  • The Audits/Wishlist are a starting point. TSL will continue to evolve our recommendations during the course of our partnership
  • Hours are spent monthly on the identified fixes/updates per the Audit & Wishlist. The breakdown of how hours are used will be customized based on customers’ unique needs. Members of our team who will be assigned hours monthly could include the following:
    • SEO Director
    • VP, Marketing
    • Sr. Director, User Experience
    • Graphic Design & UX Manager
    • Sr. Copywriter
    • Sr. Editor
    • Sr. Developer
    • Digital Marketing Manager
    • Project Manager
