Your startup deserves a digital agency that understands the specifics of startup marketing.

For busy startups, marketing tasks like SEO strategy and social media management build up fast – and are usually the first to fall by the wayside as owners focus on:

  • Product
  • Customers
  • Staffing
  • Key stakeholders
  • Financial models
  • EBITA (the necessariest of evils!)
  • And a lot of other spreadsheets

So many spreadsheets.

What Is Your Marketing Budget Runway?

You’re just on the runway, the runway is ever so tight, and you’re trying to gain enough velocity to achieve lift-off for your business.

Email marketing, link building, and consistent blog posts? These are the elephants in the room with you right now, keeping your velocity in check – and probably awake at night.

You just need an agency that understands exactly where you’re at and what you need.

One that understands…

Time is of the essence and there is no time to spare.

How to build a brand and connect with your audience.

Where to connect with your audience.

A marketing agency that knows your cash flow is your lifeline.

That your marketing budget needs to have a tangible impact on your cash flow.

The Typical Startup Scenario

Let’s be honest. Right now, you’re probably stretched in 20 different directions and these things just aren’t happening as well as they could.

Kind of like a stressful game of Twister… but instead of smiles and good times, you get sweat and tears – and ramen.

Sweat and tears as you try to get everything done all at once when, truth is, sometimes (most times) this leads to the exact opposite effect – stifling, overwhelming stagnancy.

No one ever said it would be easy, but not ever said it would be this hard. Coldplay gets it.

And so do you.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to feel like it’s just you, yourself, and… you. We got you covered.

We strictly vet every agency on our platform. There is a minimum time requirement on your end. You get 2-3 agencies suggested with specific experience in startup marketing.

Oh, and the Credo platform is 100% free to use.
