Should You Hire a Fractional CMO?
When is the Right Time to Hire a Fractional CMO?
Several scenarios may warrant the need to engage the services of a fractional marketing leader:
Early Stage Company
If you’re a startup (early stage company), you may not have the resources to hire a full-time CMO, but you still need expert marketing guidance to position your brand, define target audiences, and establish a market presence.
If you’re looking to expand, enter a new market, or launch a new product, a fractional CMO can provide the necessary strategic direction without the cost or long-term commitment of a full-time hire.
A full-time CMO can be an expensive proposition. If you’re dealing with budget constraints, or otherwise constrainted, a fractional CMO can offer the expertise needed at a fraction of the price of a full-time resource.
If you’re merging with another organization, or your full-time CMO left and you’re searching for a replacement, a Fractional CMO can step as an interim leader in to ensure there’s no drop in marketing momentum.
Many businesses get embroiled internally and stand to benefit from an outsider’s perspective. A fractional CMO can bring a “fresh” outlook” to existing marketing challenges and offer solutions that internal teams might overlook.
If you’re facing a specific marketing challenge or opportunity, like troubleshooting current efforts, digital transformation or international expansion, a Fractional CMO with expertise in that area can be invaluable.
Fractional Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) are an ideal fit for businesses that are looking for
top-tier marketing leadership on a flexible basis.
