Fractional CMO

What is a Fractional CMO?

A “Fractional CMO” is a way to get CMO-level involvement in your company without having to incur the costs of a full-time headcount.

I am a senior-level marketer who can oversee in-house marketing personnel and/or teams of subcontractors to implement strategic marketing plans, help with customer acquisition, sales development and drive company growth.

Why hire me?

Simple – Your company gets executive experience without the full-time cost.

The idea of a small or mid-sized company hiring a fractional executive is not new. If you’re looking for a great marketing leader, but don’t want an employee, an interim CMO might just fit the bill — without the high price tag or arduous hiring process.

Ultimately, a fractional CMO is a focused resource to drive marketing activities and has the added benefit of applying best practices, drawing on experiences and techniques seen across other companies.

What can I help with?

If you’re ready to accelerate your growth and are looking to align your marketing program to your business objectives, here are a few things I can help with:

  • Persona Development
  • Marketing Funnel / Flywheel
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Marketing Budgeting & Forecasting
  • Resource Planning & Management
  • Process Optimisation
  • Positioning & Messaging
  • Vision, Mission & Brand
  • KPI’s, KRA’s, Goals & Objectives
  • Marketing Tool Stack (Martech)

How Long does this take?

Hiring a CMO – fractional or full-time – is a strategic investment of time and resource for any company. It’s done with the understanding that it is not a short-term, temporary fix but one that is shifting gears within the marketing function to drive revenue, visibility and market recognition.

The engagements depend on the nature of the work to be and can be as short as 6 months or as long as is required.

I have nothing but praise for Guha. I have been in marketing for over 30 years and worked with very, very few people who are as capable.

He loves business and is brilliant at making a business run better. He learns what he needs, he thinks strategically, and he operates to a roadmap with a clear progression in mind.
