"Before I started working with Credo, my agency was stagnant. I tried working with several companies who claimed to generate leads, but they didn't deliver and I wasted thousands of dollars which left me feeling frustrated and stressed. Credo has consistently introduced me to high quality and motivated prospects looking for my specific digital marketing services and expertise. Credo has added over $100,000 in revenue to my company since working with them. I don't know where I'd be without Credo."

Here are the most commonly asked questions about Credo Pro.
Let's get the most common question out of the way first. In addition to the network fee, Credo also receives a percentage of the project value on clients you work with through Credo on the Pro or Pro Plus plan.
Much like you, we do our own marketing to grow our audience and generate the qualified clients that you are looking for. We primarily drive audience and client inquiries through our own SEO rankings, content marketing, and a bit of paid advertising across various platforms.
The average pro on Credo currently closes 1-2 new clients per month at an average project value of $2,700 monthly.
Simply put, we believe in getting you clients, not selling you leads.
Once the project is closed, Credo's delivery platform takes over. Credo invoices the client monthly and pays out to pros once work is completed. Audits and monthly reports are delivered through Credo. Cred is not an account manager and is not checking your work or resolving agency/client disagreements.
We do not disclose how many firms are currently within the Credo Pro network as the number is always changing. We do only match each client to two Pros, so you will not be competing against lowballers and unqualified firms who promise the world and cannot deliver. Our top Pros historically average 4-6 new client introductions per month with high close rates (over 50%), while the average Pro receives 1-3 matches per month.
Since July 2018, we have averaged over $2,000,000 in project work generated each month across SEO, PPC, Facebook, and content marketing channels. We purposefully only work with clients with at least $1,500 per month in marketing spend, and often require more if they need help with paid acquisition.
After a client submits their inquiry, our team conducts a discovery call to learn more about their project. We qualify them based on services needed, budget, business health, and more.
Once we verify that their expectations are reasonable, their needs are legitimate, and they have paid their project deposit to Credo then they are considered qualified and are matched to two pros from the Credo Pro Network.
A qualified client on Credo is a client who needs services that our network offers, has a reasonable budget to spend, has reasonable expectations for results and budget, and focuses on the right metrics for their business.
We take a high touch approach to matching clients with the right pros, and pros with the right clients. We match based on the services needed, the client's company type, their marketing budget, and more.
If we think that a client would be a good match for you/your company, you will receive a notification that you have a match request. You can log in, look at the project, and accept or decline the match. The client will then schedule a discovery call with you via Credo's platform.
We purposefully do not currently target specific areas to generate new clients, and thus Credo may not be the best fit for you if you are looking for clients in your local area. From time to time we will get a client who prioritizes a local provider and in those cases we take that into account, but it is not our usual way of working.
We do not officially support this yet, but if you want Credo to help you do this (it's possible, just not seamless for you yet) and take care of the invoicing for you and provide the platform for you to manage your clients, please email us email@example.com!
Credo's helped 3,500+ companies since 2015, and we're just getting started.
Clients use Credo to help them find, hire, and work with the right digital marketing firm for their needs because they know we've done the work upfront to make sure that you are best in the world at what you do. And we take the time to get to know them and you so that we can be confident that once a match is made, they'll be happy.
"I joined Credo a few years after going out on my own. Since then, we’ve grown 5x as a company. Being on Credo gives me confidence that lead activity will not completely dry up, which has factored in heavily as I weighed each new hire in the last few years."
