What is a Fractional CMO?
A Fractional CMO is a marketing executive to help with customer acquisition, sales development and company growth. Your company gets executive experience without the full-time cost. Many businesses can’t afford to hire a high-priced, full-time Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) / Marketing Director. They don’t want to make a huge commitment, and they don’t want to overhaul everything they’re currently doing. Instead, they just want some gentle nudges in the right direction from someone who knows what they’re talking about. This is where our fractional CMO service provides the balance between affordability and results impact your SME requires during the £1m to £10+m sales revenue scale and growth stages.
