Our Experienced Marketing Executives Are Committed to Your Business Growth
Experienced CEOs know when they need a thorough analysis of their marketing strategy and performance. They are interested in understanding if the returns from various email campaigns, events, and digital ads justify the resource investment, and more importantly, why they are not meeting revenue goals.
In many cases, the issues are related to how marketing is organized, how it is staffed, and how effective the company’s “marketing stack” is. If your marketing outcomes are not meeting expectations, it might be time to utilize business and marketing consultation services. The decision-makers initiate a search and explore different approaches to the problem. Hiring a full-time marketing executive might be unnecessary if they already have an effective team in place. However, they contemplate whether the company might gain more from a Fractional CMO or a marketing consultant.
A marketing consultation company typically serves as an outsourced, external supplement to your marketing team. They offer services and recommendations from outside, on a fee or retainer basis.
A Fractional CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) is a highly skilled industry marketing expert who functions as a part-time member of your marketing team. Although they may offer similar services as marketing consultants, Fractional CMOs go much further. Instead of merely devising strategy or providing advice, they are often also tasked with overseeing execution and delivering results.
Why Fractional CMOs Make Top Marketing Consultants
The primary advantage of working with a Fractional CMO over an external marketing consultant is their focus on both strategy and execution. They adopt a hands-on approach to various marketing responsibilities, get involved from creation to implementation, and leave your company with a clear path to growth. An external marketing and consulting firm, in contrast, typically adopts more of a hands-off approach to developing your marketing strategy. They work outside your team, deliver marketing and business consulting services, and, unless you grow your internal staff or marketing systems, must be retained year after year.
Fractional CMOs as Integral Marketing Consultants
A Fractional CMO is a vital part of your marketing team, providing similar services but with full commitment and accountability for execution as well, ensuring a robust return on your marketing investment. By offering comprehensive business marketing consulting services, the Fractional CMO oversees all aspects of your marketing strategy and ensures that your team is equipped to continue once the engagement concludes.
