FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why do I need a SaaS SEO agency?

SEO is an important part of any SaaS inbound marketing strategy. In our experience, the Organic channel is responsible for upwards of 50-60% of new business. As more and more businesses see the value SEO provides their SaaS org, the competition will increase leaving those who ignore SEO behind.

What differentiates Directive from another SEO company?

Directive is the creator of the Customer Generation marketing methodology that is dedicated to delivering on the promise that Demand Generation forgot about. The truth is that your software/service isn’t for everyone (despite what your product team may want to tell you).

We use a customer-led approach to SEO to prioritize the right keywords and content that properly target your end buyers. We then create a customer keyword universe for these SERPs to create a specific action-plan of how to dominate the mental real estate of the people that end up signing on the dotted line.

Directive’s team is filled with world-class marketers who specialize in SEO. We approach SEO with a customer-led focus as opposed to a product-led focus - prioritizing user experience, brand and business goals in mind. Ensuring that you are completely unmissable at every stage of the marketing funnel is our goal.

How many people from Directive will be managing my SEO project?

Each of our accounts is supported by a dedicated SEO Account Strategist who manages the day-to-day communication, strategy, and execution. Each of our strategists is supported by an Associate Director who leads client strategy and frequently joins phone calls.

Additionally, each of our clients has direct access to the SEO Director and the VP of Client Strategy. This access is not just email and a phone number but includes Slack for quick response to any issues or questions.

What platforms does Directive use for SEO research, analysis, and execution?

We have experience using a wide variety of tools for SEO; however, our primary tools include SEMrush, Ahrefs, Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google Optimize, Moz, HotJar, and more. We also have worked with many CRMs and content management systems including WordPress, HubSpot, Salesforce, CraftCMS, and more. If you’re using it to track, reach, engage, or report on your customers, chances are we’ve seen it and have someone with experience in the tool.

What do my first 30 days look like?

The first 30 days of a successful SEO campaign are crucial. Within your first 30 days we work fast to understand two areas of focus.key elements that make up a successful SEO campaign.

  1. Understanding WHO you target.

  2. We need to fully understand your audience and what they need. This research includes reviewing customer profiles, interviewing customers, reviewing customer job descriptions and identifying their jobs to be done (JTBD).

  3. Understanding your website.

  4. We audit your website to understand any current weak points, or areas of strength. We understand what content exists and how you are positioned in the market. We compare against competitors and identify quick wins for gaining traction.

Once we gather all of that information we can now bridge the gap between your website and the needs of your clients. Using this information, at the end of your first 30 days we will create a custom SEO strategy. Our SEO strategy will provide the overall direction of our work for your SaaS business.

What does communication look like with our team?

Our ongoing communication with clients can be broken down into three categories.

  • Quarterly Business Reviews: Each quarter we prepare a detailed review of the work and results of the previous quarter and a fresh look ahead at tactics and strategies for the next quarter.
  • Bi-Weekly Meetings: During our bi-weekly meetings we will dive into the details of our work and deliverables. We will prepare details around the work we have completed, and what’s next.
  • Slack Messaging: In addition to emails, or the occasional ad-hoc calls, we leverage slack for quick communication and collaboration. This ensures you never have to wait to exchange ideas, collaborate on a project, or get a few questions answered.

How long until I see results for my SaaS website?

At Directive, we believe that the SEO industry has been plagued with the idea that “SEO takes time”. Although this is true in many cases, it is a copout SEO agencies have used for years.

Many of our clients are seeing results within their first 90 days with us. This is because of our focus on quick wins and a prioritized list of work. Because we treat SEO like a performance channel, we can’t wait months or even years to see results. Our SaaS clients are competitive, and they need a SaaS SEO agency that can keep up.
