According to HubSpot, more than 60% of marketers cited lead generation as their biggest challenge in 2021. DesignRush Marketplace, a B2B platform that connects businesses with verified agencies, helps service providers generate qualified leads.

Competing in a highly saturated market, Digital Silk, a New York-based creative digital agency focused on growing brands online, has turned to DesignRush Marketplace to explore a new lead generation channel.

By subscribing to the Marketplace, Digital Silk has received exclusive access to carefully vetted projects that closely match their expertise and cost of services. The agency was able to compete for these projects with only a handful of direct competitors, enjoying greater visibility and chances of winning new clients.

In less than 5 months, Digital Silk managed to:

  • Generate 12 qualified leads
  • Send proposals for projects with a total value of $831k

According to Digital Silk’s CEO Gabriel Shaoolian, both businesses and agencies should leverage the DesignRush Marketplace to save time and resources in finding the partner that brings the most value.

"Shortly after we entered the Marketplace, we stopped PPC entirely," said Shaoolian. "We didn't need it anymore. It's expensive and conversion rates are low. DesignRush Marketplace, on the other hand, brings results. You get access to real leads that are in the market for an agency, not some vanity metrics. So, if you're an agency looking for projects or a business looking to find the most qualified service provider for your project quickly, this is the place to go."

About DesignRush: is a B2B marketplace connecting businesses with agencies through expert reviews and agency ranking lists, awards, knowledge resources and personalized agency recommendations for vetted projects.
