What is a Fractional CMO?

A fractional CMO is a part-time or temporary marketing executive who helps with brand messaging, customer experience, customer acquisition, customer retention, sales development and company growth.

A fractional CMO is someone who understands the customer journey and collaborates with team leaders who influence the customer experience from initial touch point of brand awareness to marketing and sales to invoicing and customer service.

When you hire a fractional CMO you're getting the breadth and depth of marketing experience for temporary or part-time needs without the full-time cost or going through the arduous hiring process.

Imagine an outside perspective and how insight this person could be bringing a wealth of knowledge and creative problem solving from other company's and industries.
