First Pier Receives 2020 Clutch Award

First Pier Receives 2020 Clutch Award

Exciting news—we were recently named a leader in Clutch’s report on the top 50 B2B service providers in New England among their overall report of the top 200 companies in the United States! 

What does this mean? Fair question. In a nutshell, Clutch is a big-wig website for ratings and reviews in the IT, marketing, and business service industry. Monthly, over half a million buyers and sellers of services use the Clutch platform, and that’s growing by over 50% a year. We’re talking about a large number of people who use this site as the ultimate phone-a-friend when looking for an agency like us to help them grow their business. 

“We’re proud of what we do for our clients and being recognized for it is about as good as it gets.” says founder and owner Steve Pogson.

Throughout the year, Clutch highlights its highest-ranking firms across industries and locations. In this case, they broke up the U.S. by region—for us, New England, which covers Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont—and cherry-picked who they believed met their high standards of expertise, customer service, and top-notch delivery. More than anything, Clutch is laser-focused on results and an honest job well done. The firms they award meet their standards and can be trusted by potential B2B buyers to excel at new projects

“We’re proud to highlight these companies for their ability to deliver,” said Clutch Account Manager Jake Cox. “As leaders in their field, they’re able to meet client expectations and deliver high-quality services.

Clutch’s process for identifying these leading companies is extremely selective. Their research team evaluates firms on a variety of criteria including their social media presence, former clients, brand reputation, and recency of verified reviews. More or less, they look at the people we partner with, the projects we’ve completed, what we put out there, and how our partners feel after all is said and done. At the end of the day, it’s a soup-to-nuts examination of our process and reputation. 

We’re incredibly proud to hold this title in such a competitive (and fast-growing) industry and feel lucky to do what we do.
