    Hello everyone, I want to improve my company's reports and I believe I don't have a creative eye. My guys are champs at what they do (SEO / writing related) but not one on my team is gifted when it comes to designing. I usually hire freelancers for this but I want to get an idea of different designs first before I settle on one.

    My question is, what type/design of SEO report do usual clients want? I have served over 100 clients and I just got my first complaint because he didn't like the reports made in WORD and in EXCEL. I do also feel it's poorly done, kinda like one made by a 10-year old so I'm looking to improve. Anyone willing to share their outstanding reports?

    I've checked that before but for a shared venture with a different company. As far as I can remember, it's like dropbox, noh? I was thinking more of a well-designed report like a logo on top, with some styles on the side or something. Just something creative.

    PDF reports rock really well. I dont know what type of reports you do. But when I do backlinking reports, I usually give them some data about PR and link diversity along with a few advice. In total 10-12 pages. Works well so far.

    Sounds good but the problem is, I think it's too tiring to set up individual tasks like on a calendar.

    They do look good as I've seen one before. What software is recommended for creating PDF reports?

    I looked at it. They look quite the same as other SERP trackers to be honest and they are web-based. I was preferring offline files that can be sent and stored in their computers as files.

    Did you ever end up finding a solution to delivering appealing reports to your clients?


    I design custom reports that are visually appealing for my clients but it is rather time consuming.
