    Tell me more about upcity? I'm not sure I understand the value that they are bringing.

    When you start getting a lot of clients, it becomes rather nasty trying to manage them all.

    What Upcity does is it provides an interface to be able to manage them. You log in once and can easily switch between your clients. The other benefit is if you have a team of people working on stuff, you can assign which tasks they are working on.

    Upcity is focused on SEO and they have tons of tasks that you can basically checkoff as you are working with an account. It makes it really easy to figure out what you need to work on and where their might be issues.

    They have a lot of good reports that you can provide to clients.

    They have a free 7 day trial where you can check out all the functionality. I gave them a shot for a few days and found them to be the best platform for SEO work that I have seen thus far.

    You will still have to use tools like SEMRush or Moz for real in-depth keyword and backlink research, but IMO those platforms aren't for managing a client, they are more for research.

    You will also have to use tools like BrightLocal, Yext, Synup... for managing your citations or you can pay UPcity to do it for you, but it costs a pretty penny.

    I guess, I'm not following. They provide reports for you, and processes for you to do your SEO?

    We use Asana and Google sheets to manage everything. Not sure if I'm missing something that Upcity provides at that cost? But I'd be interested to know.

    Tyson, that's what I use too. Maybe HangTen can list some screenshots?

    You have a dashboard that allows you to enter all sorts of stuff pertaining to your client. One of the tabs is tasks that you can perform and checkoff as you go with clients.

    The image above is an example where I am working though the list. Each section has various tasks that need to be performed to become fully complete. You can assign tasks to others if you have a team working with clients.

    To fully understand the application you really need to play around with it. I spent a good 4-5 hours playing with it and adding client information. It was very intuitive and easy to understand.

    Do you enter the tasks in the program or does it come pre-built/in a template?

    It comes pre-populated, but you can modify tasks.

    So far the tasks are pretty good.

    You can assign the task a status and it will drop into the appropriate queue.

    • Open
    • In Review
    • Verified
    • Completed
    • On Hold
    • Not Applicable

    Each task also gives you some how to info, allows you to add notes, attach images and assign.

    The other cool part is each task has a time value associated with it and Impact points given to it. That way you can show the client (if you want) what has been done and how long it took on average to perform the tasks.

    Again you can see all of this by doing a 7 day trial, if you go to their website.

    Re: What's the least that you would charge for a Local campaign?

    I am currently at the Agency Pro Level ($150) a month, but I might jump to the Agency Pro Plus level ($300) next year.

    What is cool at that level is you get
    Custom Tasks
    Team Management
    Team Assignment & Due Dates
    Agency Task Management
    + White Label Reports, which would be really nice.

    I like how it has an Effort Vs Impact rating. This is so important and a concept that is often not considered when developing an SEO road map.

    Colan, are you using this as well? It looks interesting based on the screenshots provided by hangtenseo.

    I like the layout, and how it has the step by step process, seems like it would be a simple way to provide processes for team members.
