First off, you need to register, which is easy to do. You can just go to https://www.process.st, enter your email address next to the Get Started for Free button and click it.

On the next page, you need to type in your password, full name, company name and select your industry. Then click the green Next button at the bottom.

Process St - Step Two

The next page allows you to add your team members if you want to do that right away. If it’s not the case, you can just click the Skip button because you can easily do that down the road. Now you just need to go to your email inbox and verify your email address. Having that done, your Process Street account is ready and you can get started.

Process St - Step Three

Since you’re an SEO guy, it makes sense to create a folder called SEO. You want to expand the New … drop-down window and select the New Folder … option.

Process St - Step Four

Now, you can name your folder SEO or whatever makes sense to you. Now you should click OK.

Process St - Step Five

In order to configure your folder you can click the Gear icon next to its name in the dashboard.

Process St - Step Six

If you already know your SEO companions that will work with you or outsourcing guys you’re going to outsource your SEO tasks to, you can add them in the Members section.

Process St - Step Seven

In the Properties section, you can rename your folder or delete it if you changed your mind and don’t need it any more.

Process St - Step Eight

Now that you have your main SEO folder you can add templates to run down the road. You just need to expand the New … drop-down menu and select New Blank Template.

Process St - Step Nine

At this point, you should see the option that allows you to name your brand new template. I’m going to name it On-Page SEO. Having that done, just click OK.

Process St - Step Ten

Now you can configure your checklist by adding items and other media components. For example, my first checklist item is going to be “Keyword in the HTML title”.

Process St - Step Eleven

While you have your item selected, you can add more content on the right. You can add text if you need to elaborate on the item you’re adding. You can also add an image that can contribute to understanding the task to be completed.

Process St - Step Twelve

Other than that, you can add a video that explains how to find the title tag in the code of your page. You also have the option to upload a file. In this particular case, it can be an HTML file that the person needs to edit in order to update the HTML title. And finally you can send an email right from the checklist item.

Why It’s Better

Long story short, the checklist items in Process Street are like regular checklist items but on steroids. You have the option to add everything that you need to work on the item without referring to any other 3rd party resources. That prevents from too much back and forth that tends to happen in such cases.

Once you’re done with your first checklist item, you can just click the next one, give it a name (say, Keyword in Headlines) and add additional components just like we just did for the first item. By the way, you can change the order of your checklist items by dragging and dropping them.

Process St - Step Fourteen

You can also use the options at the bottom to add new items, headings, move up and down or delete items.

Process St - Step Fifteen

Once you’re done with creating your checklist, you just need to click the Save changes button in the upper left corner.

Process St - Step Sixteen

Now you can Run the checklist, edit the template if you’re not happy with something, subscribe to it for keeping track of the progress. You can also archive your template if you don’t need it for now. Other than that, you can move or copy the template. In case you want to make your template public, you just need to select the Share this template .. option.

You can also export your template as a Word document or just as a .zip file. And Finally you can delete it if you don’t need the template any more and won’t ever need it again. The right-hand sidebar allows you to also add members, tags and see all relevant activity. Now let’s run your checklist and see how it works.

Process St - Step Seventeen

First, you need to type your checklist name.

Process St - Step Eighteen

Now you can do the tasks and tick off completed items as you progress. You can see if a specific item has any additional information by clicking the arrow icon across your item.

Process St - Step Nineteen

Other than creating templates from scratch, you can benefit from building upon pre-designed templates or just completing them as is. You just need to expand the New .. drop-down menu and select New Premade Template.

Process St - Step Twenty

Now you can either search for your premade template by keyword or just select from the Featured drop-down.

Process St - Step Twenty-One

If the chosen template is what you need, you can click the Customize button, name it, customize it as you see fit and finally run your checklist.

Process St - Step Twenty-Two

    I’m using Google Docs to do the same, but it goes without saying that the platform makes everything by a long shot easier …

      That’s exactly what I’m doing as well. Sure thing, the platform may have its benefits, but you can’t change the fact that using Google Docs frees you from all sorts of limitations. I’t’s almost like working with a sheet of paper.
