As a Fractional CMO I am closely involved in your marketing operations and come with a strategic mind to grow and develop your business.

What Is A Fractional CMO?

A Fractional CMO is a senior marketing specialist who joins your business on a temporary or part-time basis to provide marketing expertise as you launch your product to the market.

Therefore Fractional CMOs think "big-picture" and create a defined marketing strategy to position your start-up for growth.

Fractional CMOs are different from freelancers and don't usually do adhoc marketing services. In fact, they are fully engaged, often overseeing the entire marketing operation and accountable for the results that they produce.

A Fractional CMO can be part of your team and liaise with other development or support team members. They also have management capabilities, setting up your marketing team or working alongside an in-house team.

Why Hire A Fractional CMO?

  • You get an interim CMO without the cost and commitment of hiring a full-time permanent CMO.
  • You may already have marketing personnel but no one to support and control the marketing function.
  • You can confidently rely on the expertise of a senior marketing professional to help you create your marketing systems or improve your marketing efforts.
  • You're already actively engaged in product development, raising investment and other operational challenges. You don't have the time to wear another hat but acknowledge that marketing is necessary.

Fractional CMO vs Traditional CMOs, Freelancers or Agencies

Unlike traditional CMOs, Fractional CMOs are flexible in their working patterns. They are there when you need them and because of the flexibility in agreement, if things don't work out, you can easily decide to part ways.

Unlike freelancers, Fractional CMOs are fully engaged. They are often part of the team and may even collaborate on projects with in-house support. They are also accountable for the results that they produce, which means they are heavily invested in the success of your start-up.

Unlike agencies, Fractional CMOs have management capabilities and can help to manage and develop new or existing teams.

What Does A Fractional CMO Do?

Fractional CMOs develop end-to-end marketing funnels. This means, they develop the overall marketing strategy in line with your business' objectives from brand awareness to lead generation, traffic growth and customer acquisition and retention.

They work alongside other marketing professional to implement and execute marketing campaigns.

They typically own the marketing strategy and are accountable for the success of the strategy. They have a birds' eye view of the entire marketing operation and from time to time, set and review the marketing goals.

They even coach and support junior marketing personnel to help them develop and grow their own marketing skills.
