What is the Credo Lead Generation and Sales Accelerator?

The Lead Generation and Sales Accelerator is the culmination of five years, 4,500+ prospects generated, and seeing over $125M in digital marketing work come through Credo. In that time we've learned what works to get qualified leads in the door, convert them to prospects, and ultimately close them into clients.

This is a 7 week intensive. The next cohort begins September 29, 2020.

Week 1: Build the right website

Many things going into building a website that converts. While digital marketers usually think a lot about traffic acquisition, we spend too little time thinking about what gets clients to convert. Week 1 covers the ideal structure of an agency website.

Week 2: Messaging and conversion

Messaging is hard, so how do you build messaging around your core offerings that qualifies in the right leads, qualifies out the wrong ones, and still converts? We'll dig deep into the language around consulting and services and share case studies from what works and doesn't. Week 2 is all about messaging and conversion.

Week 3: Lead generation

Marketers are great at talking about "how many leads we generated last month", but when it comes to converting them we waste a ton of time. Week 3 covers lead generation and how to attract the right leads, and take top of funnel leads and convert them into paying clients.

There will be a week break between weeks 3 and 4 to allow for implementation of what you've learned thus far.

Week 4: Sales

Lots of agencies can generate enough leads, but the funnel breaks down when it comes to closing. Too many proposals get sent that never get signed. Week 4 covers the sales process we know closes work and will tighten up your existing processes so you sign more clients and make more money.

Week 5: Proposals and automation

This week covers creating proposals that get signed as well as some strategies to automating a lot of your lead generation followup activities.

Week 6: Q&A

The topics of week 6 are up to you! This week will be an open Q&A with John to cover any outstanding questions you have or things that weren't covered that you would like input on!

"I started working with Credo soon after going out on my own. Since then, we’ve grown 5x as a company. Being on Credo gives me confidence that lead activity will not completely dry up, which has factored in heavily as I weighed each new hire in the last few years."
