Contract Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) services enable you to complement your executive staff with a hands-on, highly experienced contributor. Our Contract CMO’s are a special breed. They all have extensive experience, usually over 30+ years in high technology, in both multiple public (16b officer) and private companies.
Contract CMO’s are an immediate extension of your management team. They work on an interim basis and generally provide from between 10 to 20+ hours per week. They can grow from a department with just one individual contributor focused on establishing initial marketing activities, and, participate in hiring new team members. They can also work with departments in transition, such as during merger and acquisition activity. It is often the case that they can also help you hire your new CMO, and transition out.
Serving Founding Teams, Boards and the Venture Capital Community
We are a leader in providing Contract CMO services on a national basis. We serve chief executive officers, founding teams, boards, and the venture capital community both in silicon valley and on the east coast. All of our team members have both public company experience (as a chief marketing officer or VP/SVP/EVP marketing reporting to the CEO or Division head) and hands-on experience in multiple early stage venture-fundedSV companies.
An Immediate Extension of Your Executive Team
Our Contract CMO’s become part of your executive staff on a part-time basis. Our contract CMO’s have the experience to provide market opportunity analysis (MOA), suggest staffing levels, budgets and manage build-out of the marketing automation platforms and branding infrastructure. Our senior team can assess your market, recommend programs, plans, and budgets to meet your goals, and then manage and report on key performance indicators (KPI). We also can help navigate organizational transitions due to merger and acquisition activity.
Hands-On Execution and Results for Early Stage Companies
Our hands-on Contract CMOs deliver the strategy, content, and programs on a rapid-fire basis. We execute like crazy to get results for you this quarter and next. Our customers often tell us our talented executives deliver more high-quality programs, more quickly, at a lower cost than they could deliver in-house without a full-time CMO.
Once the service window is over, our Contract CMO’s can also help you hire your new CMO, and gracefully transition out. Most of the time the new CMO chooses to keep our team contribution in place for content marketing services.
