"When I was tasked with hiring someone to help with our marketing, I turned to Credo. They introduced us to two vetted pros who specialized in what we need. Credo saved us a lot of time and money by getting us the right pros the first time."
"We contacted Credo and after a 30 minute discussion where they asked deeper questions to clarify our needs and current setup (including other agencies we already work with), they introduced us to two agencies who ended up being a perfect fit for us."
"This was my first time using Credo and I will never hire another agency without them. I needed a PPC agency and I needed one FAST. Credo got me 3 discovery calls in a day with some seriously high quality companies. The hardest part was choosing between them. If you're going to hire an agency, use Credo. Seriously."
"All 3 candidates were awesome and I really appreciated the process. Using Credo blew my mind in terms of saving time, 3 super high quality candidates, and we got a lot out of hearing their various approaches."
Credo helps companies find and hire the right marketing partner.
A company can be polished and professional and still not deliver great results, so we specifically ask each network applicant about their clients and results they have driven.
We ask every applicant for:
Quality of work delivered is extremely important to us and extremely important to you.
Our professional vetting involves the following:
Every network applicant must also pass our culture screening to make sure they're aligned with our standards.
This involves a 30 minute call covering:

"GetCredo.com is one of the few trustworthy places to find a good SEO."
"After working with a number of clients who had been burned by illicit consultants, industry veteran John Doherty was inspired to create [a company] that would help companies find reputable search marketing and SEO professionals."
"I don't know of anyone who puts as much care and attention into properly vetting and matching SEO projects with vendors than Credo."
Prioritize agencies who have experience with the channel or channels you need help with. If you have multiple needs, we recommend prioritizing a full service firm who can do all channels as opposed to hiring individual agencies or contractors for each channel. This will reduce the number of providers you have to contact as well as the management overhead once they are hired.
Note - at Credo we match you with providers from our network who both fit your marketing channel needs and have experience with your type of business (SaaS, Ecommerce, etc). Where possible, we also match you with providers who have experience in your industry.
We recommend speaking with multiple agencies to verify that they have the experience you require and that you like speaking with them. Culture fit between you and your agency is the unspoken factor we find that determines if an engagement will be successful. We then recommend that you conduct longer strategy sessions (about an hour) with 2-4 agencies to dive deeper on your needs with their team.
Note - Credo schedules the initial discovery calls for you with agencies from our network.
Once you’ve gone deeper with 2-4 agencies, ask for proposals that you can review that include scope, timeline, cost, and terms. We recommend that you use our Agency Reviewer resource to make it easier. Some agencies may have a separate contract with terms and conditions, which is fine.
Once you receive proposals, you can negotiate back with agencies. The most common things to negotiate back on are scope and timeline. If ideal budget is above your ability to pay, see if you can reduce the scope to get the project within budget while understanding the tradeoffs.
Finally, make a decision about who to work with and commit for a period of time that is long enough to know if you’re able to get results but not so long that it traps you into something that isn’t working. We recommend that you agree to at minimum a 3 month contract, and ideally a 6 month contract with a three month out.
Make sure healthy expectations are set and your agency fully understands your objectives. The best results are created when you have alignment with your agency around your business goals.
The best SEO company for your business is likely different from the best SEO company for someone else's business. The best SEO company for your business is the one that you can afford, has proven results working with businesses like yours, and with whom you can work well.

Finding the right SEO company doesn't have to be hard. Use Credo.
Companies of all types, sizes, and budgets use SEO as an acquisition channel to drive more customers, revenue, and profits. SEO is commonly understood as a viable digital marketing channel that has many intricacies, and thus many companies hire an SEO company or consultant to help them properly optimize their site and rank in search engines.
SEO costs vary widely based on your business, the scope of the engagement, the experience of the SEO company or consultant, location, and more. Most SEO companies charge around $150 per hour, between $1,000-$5,000 for a single project (pricing depends on the need and scope), and between $1,500-$4,000 per month (and up, depending on need and scope) for retained SEO consulting and services.
