Porter Service


Porter Service

John Doherty

Tired of wasting money on the wrong agency or consultant?

I’m John Doherty, the founder of Credo. As a former agency marketer, solo consultant, and inhouse head of marketing on two large national brands, I have now helped more than 1,200 companies define their needs and get introduced to the right agency or consultant for their specific needs. Let me help you be successful in your search!

Get business advice, help hiring the right agency, and proposal reviews

por·ter ˈpôrdər/ noun

1. a person employed to carry luggage and other loads, especially in a railroad station, airport, or hotel.

I get it. 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.

You can use the Porter Service for one of two things:

  1. To help you define your marketing needs, budget, and strategy for moving forward with growth; or
  2. To review proposals you already have in hand and help you make the right decision on which agency or marketing provider to hire.

So let me help you. Here’s how it works:

  • We’ll have a 50 minute phone call where I learn about your business and identify areas of opportunity;
  • We’ll discuss the budget you need to hit your goals;
  • We’ll make personalized recommendations for agencies/consultants you should speak with, and introductions if it makes sense.

For just $249 (your money back guaranteed if you don’t see the value!), you get the piece of mind of knowing the right project and hiring the right person. Isn’t that better than wasting money hiring the wrong agency or consultant?

All reviews are done by me, well known entrepreneur/marketer/SEO and Credo founder John Doherty. I have personally seen over $8M in marketing work come through Credo, worked with over 150 agencies and consultants, and built marketing teams as well as 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.”

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 even if it meant going outside of the Credo network. Our 15 minute call literally saved us countless hours and thousands of dollars. We’ll definitely use Credo again for future needs!Josh Smith, Senior Earned Media Specialist at NicoPure.com

What you get

The Porter Service is a deep dive into your marketing organization. After the call is complete, you will receive a document that contains:

  1. An overview of your current marketing setup
  2. Our recommendations of positions to hire and how to structure your marketing organization to get the most out of working with an agency (if that is the right recommendation)
  3. If it’s right, a defined project and introductions to the right marketing providers for your business’s specific needs

After seeing over 1,200 digital marketing projects come through Credo, we know that there is no “best” agency or consultant. What you need depends on your business, your goals, your marketing organization, your budget, and so much more.

Let us help you get clarity on that through the Porter Service.
