There are a few good points in this post

The usual steps i follow are

What are the Goals - What do you want at the end of it all. even though it is an ongoing cycle of work. The internet is an ever changing place.

Keyword Research and Analysis - What keywords do you want to rank highly

Ranking Analysis versus Your Competitors for chosen keywords- See where you rank with the opposition, use such programs as IBP, or Web Position

Optimisation and Link Development & Directory Submission - Getting the link count up. the more domains linking to your domain the better.

Increase content - Increase the number relavent pages on your site.

Monitor Ranking, Analysis & Reporting - This is core to see if you work is doing any good, when ever you see drops you know something has changed and you need to re SEO a certain part of your page
