Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re already operating a successful fractional CMO or consulting business that’s scaling effectively, Growth Connect is probably not a fit.

But if you’re ready to leave the corporate environment and don’t want to take the leap into starting a business from scratch, Growth Connect is an excellent option.

We offer an entrepreneurial path with far less risk: You choose your own clients and schedule, and we provide a marketing methodology, a platform for you to promote your services, a group of peers to learn with, and a pool of talented specialists to help with execution.

Yes, if you have existing clients you can continue working with them after you join Growth Connect. However, these clients must be invoiced through Growth Connect while you are an employee. If you leave Growth Connect, you will be able to take back full ownership of these clients.

We provide baseline rates and contracts for guidance, but you can create custom solutions and set your own rates. You receive the majority of the revenue through a generous revenue-sharing scheme.

Not really. You have the flexibility to choose how many clients you work with so you can achieve your ideal work-life balance, but this is not a side gig to earn extra cash.

Yes, however Growth Connect is based in Thailand and we are only able to hire employees who reside in Thailand. This is one of the major benefits of our employee contract: You can legally live and work in one of the most appealing countries in the world.

For especially qualified applicants, you can join as a contractor from your current location and later decide if you’d like to move to Thailand. However, you will only be eligible for employee benefits if you are hired as an employee in Thailand.

No, employees can reside anywhere in Thailand. Contractors can work from anywhere in the world.

Absolutely! Our fractional CMOs based in Thailand typically meet once a week online and once a month in person.

Yes, you need to conduct your own outreach through email, video, and networking events. However, we provide material for outreach campaigns and help you boost credibility through the Growth Connect brand and website.

You will be sitting on your client’s side of the table for any production services, so you are free to use and recommend the resources that best match their needs and budget. That said, a major benefit of the Growth Connect network is that it offers our fractional CMOs direct access to expert digital marketing production resources, including shared collaboration platforms. But you’re not obligated to use them.

Yes, you’ll receive the salary required to sponsor an expat work permit in Thailand. However, the majority of your income will be performance-related pay based on your client revenue.

Yes, continued employment is contingent on Growth Connect fractional CMOs managing a minimum monthly revenue. This can typically be achieved with just one or two clients.

Yes, business-level English proficiency is required. The Growth Connect team works 100% in English and, since our clientele are global, the majority of our client communication is in English as well.

That said, our talent network consists of specialists from the US, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Lithuania, Thailand, and many other countries. We work with many non-native English speakers.
