After seeing over 6,000+ digital marketing projects come through Credo, we know that there is no “best” agency or consultant.
But there is a best for you, and we can help you establish your strategic marketing hiring plan through the Credo Porter Service.
Since 2015 I’ve spoken with thousands of companies who are hiring an agency, and my team knows how to connect you with the right marketing agencies.
But the connections are only as good as your ability to work effectively with an agency, dedicate the right budget to the investment, and your mindset around your marketing performance and goals.
Hi I’m John Doherty, the CEO & founder of Credo.
As a former agency marketer and in-house head of marketing, as well as a solo consultant working with brands like The New York Times and Dribbble, I started Credo in 2015. We’ve now helped over 6,000+ companies put together a plan for who to hire, what to spend, and then we’ve facilitated that process.

It’s hard to know what exactly you need to do to grow your business, and hiring the wrong agency or consultant is very expensive and frustrating. When you’re not a marketer yourself, then you probably feel lost.
For just $
600 $329 (my normal hourly rate for consulting with marketing/SEO clients is $600+), you get access to my 10 years of digital marketing experience across agencies, in-house, and working for myself. You will walk away with clarity on what direction to go with your marketing, how to structure your marketing organization based off your goals, and help hiring the right provider if it’s the right step for you.
Isn’t that better than wasting money hiring the wrong agency or consultant by trying to do it yourself?
All Porter calls are done personally by me, Credo founder John Doherty. I have personally seen over $100,000,000 (yes, million) in marketing work come through Credo, worked with over 150 agencies and consultants, and built marketing teams in-house while also consulting with some of the largest sites and coolest startups in the world. I am trusted in the digital marketing industry and love helping people like you.
We needed a consultant to bridge our SEO efforts while we attempted to hire an in-house Director of SEO. John lined up four qualified options within a day, and we ended up landing the single most qualified person in our entire industry within 2 weeks. It was 1 part luck, 1 part Credo. The Porter Service will be my first stop for talent on all future projects.

John is a wealth of knowledge, very clear and focused in his delivery. Worth every penny.
Seth Price, Cofounder of Placester.com
My session with John proved that you can get a lot done in a little time, when you’re working with the right people. He was knowledgeable but easy to work with. In SEO, specifics are key. With his examples and clear direction, we were able to quickly resolve my open questions and I walked away with confidence on what to do next.

As a seasoned digital marketer of 10 years, I have no problem identifying agencies who can deliver results. The problem is the time and money it takes to figure out which agencies are good at a specialization like link building and content marketing. This is where Credo excels. They quickly identified the agencies that best fit our specific needs and introduced us to them. Our call literally saved us countless hours and thousands of dollars. We’ll definitely use Credo again for future needs!

Hi I’m John Doherty. I’m the founder and CEO of Credo, a veteran and internationally recognized SEO consultant, and I love helping businesses grow. I’m good at it, and I want to help you.
I live in Denver Colorado with my wife Courtney, our daughter Tatum, and our very large black labrador Butterbean. When I’m not working I’m in the mountains. Depending on the season I’m skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, or climbing to the top of a tall peak.
