A new way to learn digital marketing

Posted by on July 20, 2022 in Announcements

tl;DR – today we’re launching the Credo Learn Center, which is a curated set of digital marketing and agency growth courses taught by recognized experts. Check it out! For nearly a decade, since January 2013, Credo has been helping companies and brands find the right digital marketing agency to work with. We’ve been through a bunch of iterations and team size has ebbed and flowed, but we’ve stayed true to our core reason for existing – to help companies grow….

Two New Options For Agencies To Get Leads

Posted by on June 27, 2022 in Announcements

A few years ago we launched the Credo Lead Network as a way for more agencies to get qualified digital marketing leads than we’ve been able to serve with our Pipeline As A Service offering. I realized in August 2020 that we were turning away a lot of good companies who needed marketing help because their budget was not large enough for the agencies in Credo’s network at that time. What started as a simple email with Buy Now links…

As you may be noticing, we’re currently rocking through our set of features that we need and want to build to achieve true marketplace feature parity and keep innovating in the space.

New in Credo: Messaging and User Profiles

Posted by on November 18, 2019 in Announcements

If you’ve been watching Credo over the years, then you know that we’ve been through a lot of changes. From a simple WordPress site to an exclusive network, I’ve learned a lot over the years since starting this company in my old Brooklyn apartment in early 2013. Today Credo’s product takes a big step forward. We’ve heard from many with active projects in Credo over the last few months that it’s confusing having communication during the sales and delivery stages happening…

Announcing the 2019 digital marketing industry pricing survey

Posted by on January 16, 2019 in Announcements/Marketing Industry/Pro Blog

In 2017 we published our digital marketing pricing survey, which became one of the most referenced pricing surveys in the digital marketing industry. 184 respondents across 19 countries participated in that survey. We would love to grow that this time around so that we can provide more accurate statistics for the industry! Thank you everyone for your contributions! We had 272 survey responses, and are now at work analyzing, visualizing, and writing up our discoveries! Stay tuned for a launch…

Announcing Credo’s new Lead Generation and Sales Strategy consultations

Posted by on August 1, 2018 in Announcements

Something I hear from marketers and agencies frequently is “we’re not ready to join Credo yet because we’re still working on our (sales process/lead generation)”. This is a completely valid concern. If you’re a marketing provider (agency or consultant) and your sales process isn’t working to close work, then being listed in the Credo network isn’t going to do you much good. When you get leads you will struggle to close them, and it will be much harder to see…

Announcing the Credo Digital Marketing Jobs board

Posted by on June 19, 2018 in Announcements

Edit: as of July 2019 the Credo digital marketing jobs board is no longer active. For a long time, people have asked me to help them hire full time people. Whether a full time SEO, PPC specialist, or director of marketing, hiring full time people is hard. Also for a long time I’ve told people that Credo is not a full time recruiting service. We are still not a recruiting service, but today as of today Credo has a brand…

CredoCast Season 3 is officially wrapped

Posted by on April 11, 2018 in Announcements

I started experimenting with podcasting a few years ago. It’s taken off over the last few years, and over that course of time I’ve somehow racked up over 40 interviews (which you can find all of them here). By the numbers: 40 interviews Somewhere around 1200 minutes of content produced I started doing video with this latest season, Season 3.

Announcing the Credo SEO Calculator

Posted by on August 1, 2017 in Announcements

Today I want to show you a new tool that we published recently onsite: the SEO calculator. I’m excited about this tool because it works towards answering a question that we get asked all the freaking time: How much should I expect to pay for SEO? This question is so hard to answer because there are so many different factors that go into it: Size of your site Experience with SEO in the past Growth goals How broken your site currently is Your revenue…

Credo Passes A Milestone – $2M in Work Sent To Pros

Posted by on March 2, 2017 in Announcements

Back in November, I got to write the update that Credo passed the $1M mark in work sent to pros on the platform. This was almost exactly one year after the relaunch. What made it even sweeter was that I wrote that update while in Prague with my wife as we traveled the world for just under a month. Today I get to announce another exciting milestone: As of Monday February 27th, Credo has now sent over $2 million worth of…

Announcing the Credo Porter Service

Posted by on January 3, 2017 in Announcements

As I’ve been running Credo over the last year, one of the things I’ve heard most often is “I know I need to grow but I have no idea how to do it or what I need.” Because Credo is a lead generation service for marketers, this also means that conversion rates on Credo are suffering because people don’t know what they need, so they don’t do anything.

Credo Pro is Open!

Posted by on December 6, 2016 in Announcements

Hello digital marketing enthusiasts! It’s me, John, founder of Credo. Today I am excited to announce that Credo Pro is once again open to new pros. Pro closed at the beginning of October so that we could rethink the sign-up flow to ensure that only the right agencies are able to get onto the platform, and that has indeed happened.

Announcing Platform Responses

Posted by on December 6, 2016 in Announcements

In the middle of October I emailed you to tell you that I had made some changes to the email system and that a few more were coming as well. Today I want to let you know that the way responses come to you has changed, for the better!

Announcing the 2017 Digital Marketing Industry Pricing Survey

Posted by on December 1, 2016 in Announcements

Update: this study is now live here! One of the bigger challenges that marketing agencies and consultants face is “how much do I charge?” With the popularity of our SEO company rates page, it is painfully obvious that this is a need in the industry. The need is on both sides – agencies need to know if they are over or under charging relative to the market at large, and businesses looking to hire should also have more transparency into…

Credo Crosses $1 Million in Work Sent to Pros

Posted by on November 7, 2016 in Announcements

Today I have an exciting announcement to share. As of the end of October, Credo has officially passed the $1 million mark in work sent to pros on the platform! Every month, Credo continues to grow faster and faster. It is amazing to me that in 13 months’ time, I have hit this milestone as a solo bootstrapped entrepreneur. Credo is an amazing business to run. I get to work with fantastic business owners (agencies and consultants) who are doing…

Introducing Credo Pro – SaaS Edition

Posted by on May 11, 2016 in Announcements

Today I set live a whole new version of my company Credo. While I’ve been iterating on the original idea of generating leads for marketing consultants and agencies for a while, and done it well (I’ve sent over $500k of work to pros on Credo), the time has come for phase 2. I’m excited to be here and absolutely terrified by it as well.

Credo New Feature Update: Consultant/Agency Reviews!

Posted by on January 29, 2016 in Announcements

Here at Credo, we’re bringing transparency to the digital marketing consulting industry. Digital marketing is an opaque industry where a lot of practitioners do not do a great job for their clients and thus earn the industry a bad name (if you’ve been in SEO for more than a few years you are well familiar with this) and hurts all of us. Most importantly, great honest businesses experience harm. I want to put a stop to this. Today I’ve pushed…

Goodbye HireGun. Hello Credo

Posted by on January 18, 2016 in Announcements

I just pushed live a new version of my company. Formerly known as HireGun, moving forward the name is Credo and you can find it at GetCredo.com. Let me tell you why. Why change the name of a company that is, for all intents and purposes, just a few months old? If it’s not broken, why fix it? Well, the answer is that the name HireGun was broken and I had to fix it.
