Credo helps marketing agencies get more clients.
The agency business model is one of the toughest around. You’re constantly balancing the line of too many versus too few customers (though let’s be honest, normally it’s too few) and being overstaffed or understaffed, which can lead to severe cash flow issues if not balanced right.
At the same time, you need enough clients paying you enough money to make your margins work. Agencies can be a very low margin business, often under 20% profitability.
Thus, it can be challenging to hire when you are not sure of your project pipeline. Because agencies tend to spend most of their operating budget on talent (aka people), hiring someone and then not having enough work can be very expensive and stressful. At the same time, you need enough clients to justify hiring someone while not overextending your current team.
What’s an agency to do ?

Ethan Lyon, Tech Team Lead, at Seer came to Credo with a problem: their technical SEO team was full up with work and they needed to find agencies or consultants willing to help them out.
In Ethan’s words:
“Our tech team was at capacity and we were on the verge of turning away business when I found Credo. Almost immediately after posting the job we heard from a handful of contractors. We vetted them to the high standards our clients have of us, and are on our way to filling tech requests.”
Sometimes agencies run into a spot where many clients close at the same time, and the agency isn’t able to take on all of the work at once. You need some more hands to help you deliver the work, but where do you go?
“Our clients hold us to incredibly high standards, so finding contractors that meet those high expectations can be really tough. I highly recommend Credo to deliver high quality talent, and their customer service is excellent when questions arise.”
Credo has helped the following agencies and more find other freelance marketers and agencies to help them scale their client work:
