    Pros: 

    Marketing for a health startup, Hike is the tool I need to introduce SEO, as the sole marketing voice, Hike provides the team behind me...

    Cons: 

    Not seen any so far...

    Building our landing page and app atm and SEO is core to our launch strategy, having watched demos for Hike and as a member of their SEO page I have already placed Hike into our launch plan, excited to use it and report back...

    Katie Beaton has never used this product.

Had a great time working with @kieranheadley and @andy_allen on the Ignite accelerator as they built Hike on the programme. Two domain specialists solving a real-world problem! What's been the hardest part of building Hike for you both so far? What's the big vision?

Kieran HeadleyMaker@kieranheadley · Director, theWebShed
@andy_allen @fatkidonfire so the hardest part was probably getting the keyword suggestion tool right. There are so many levels of knowledge when it comes to SEO (some know a little, some a lot, some none at all), that we had to create a tool that helped founders of all those expertise levels found useful. That's why beta testing was so ace. It uncovered a lot of improvements we could make. The big vision is to help startups outside of the tech sphere, and help all small businesses. We want to develop our task engine even further too, and implement machine learning into the recommendation process. Our task engine can be combined with some form of automated implementation, eg we apply the suggestions directly from our tool into the website.

The perfect platform for startups who want to do SEO for their business, but don't know how. They can't afford for agency support, and they want to learn themselves.
@kieranheadley just startups or would it also work with personal brands?

Hi @nnovick , It will work with all websites not just startups.

Looks interesting. What's the instillation process?
Kieran Headley
Kieran HeadleyMaker@kieranheadley · Director, theWebShed
@neilcocker it's a cloud based platform so there's no installation needed on your website. We crawl the website, and along with the strategy you create using Hike, we give you a list of actions to make that will implement that strategy and improve your SEO

@kieranheadley Great! I'd honestly get that in the first 5 seconds of your pitch! For those with small access to dev, or who are bootstrapping, this will be a really attractive feature. I know how easy it is for all those "single line of code" installations to slip down the priority list.
