Imagine, for a second, that a tool existed that allowed you to never have to check your work email – ever again. Would you use it? (Raises hand). Slack is a communication platform that allows you to chat with other team members, clients, your mom, whoever! It’s an awesome SEO project management tool because Slack integrates with other project management tools like Asana and Trello.
My favorite part about Slack?
Slackbot is like your own personal assistant. I can set reminders, create automated responses, and answer questions.
Why Slack? Foundation for teamwork-
Slackbot isn’t the only project management feature for Slack. With Slack, you can create separate channels to communicate to other marketers or chat with clients. And, many use Slack for community management. You can also set reminders. Simply type /remind in a channel and Slackbot will send you a reminder at the day and time you specify. For those of you who enjoy checking things off your list, Slack has a To Do bot that lets you keep your checklist within Slack.
Plans and Pricing of Slack
Good things often come with price tags, but with Slack, it’s free for most businesses. Slack has a free option as well as two tiers of paid plans, called Standard and Plus. But, if you want to upgrade, Slack offers an $8 per month and $15 per month plan based on your needs. Slack for Teams is a single workspace for your small- to medium-sized company or team. Slack Enterprise Grid powers the design, usage, and administration of multiple interconnected Slack workspaces across your entire company.
How will Slack help me for SEO Project?
No matter how much or little money you have to invest in SEO, Slack has helped businesses of all sizes keep their hard-earned cash because the majority of features are available with the free plan. With Slack, you can create channels to communicate directly with your SEO clients so you can gain back that time you would spend in hour-long meetings and 10+ email threads.
The fact that Slack exists and is such an essential tool, it’s really helped us with scaling and still feeling connected to one another across remote offices and remote teams.” Lisa Madokoro, Culture Specialist at Shopify
“We use Slack for internal messaging among employees to quickly share links, graphics, and to schedule a meeting,” said Jack Nolan, Digital Marketing Strategist. “We use Flow for project management including project delegation and following up on tasks and processes. Slack and Flow are great because they stress communication, which is the most common hurdle in SEO project management.”
