What’s unique about working with a Growth Connect fractional CMO?

Marketing requires strategy and expertise — can you really afford to go it alone?

If you’re leading a business today, you’re likely frustrated by marketing. Gone are the days when a modest ad budget would drive in leads. Now, you can put energy and money into campaigns that seem to just get lost in the noise. They don’t deliver results, and you don’t know why.

We know why.

  • Challenge 1: Absence of a marketing strategy

Your message won’t reach your ideal audience if you don’t have clear areas of differentiation and a well-defined strategy for targeting them. Instead, you’re just left fighting against your competitors by trying to undercut them or one-up them.

  • Challenge 2: Lack of a marketing system

You can launch campaigns and send emails, but without processes to connect them and monitor the results, you’re shooting blind. Ad hoc marketing campaigns only really succeed through luck.

  • Challenge 3: Lack of marketing leadership

Business leaders like to wear multiple hats, but keeping up with changing marketing trends and technologies takes a huge amount of time. If you don’t have the know-how and expertise to provide guidance to your internal marketers, your marketing is essentially leaderless.

So is it all bad news? Not at all!

You can overcome these challenges, and it takes just 90 days. It’s a transformation – the transformation from marketing as a necessary evil, to marketing becoming your primary driver of business growth.

Adding an fCMO to your team will allow you to bring in an expert marketing leader without needing to expand your executive headcount. They add strategic and technical marketing skills to your business, working with you to craft your messaging and target your ideal customers. And they’ll begin building your internal marketing team, helping it become self-sufficient, and eventually replacing themselves with your own in-house marketing leader.

It’s time to make your marketing transformation.

The 90-day transformation: How it works

The goal of the 90-day transformation is to establish a solid foundation for your marketing. It’s the ideal length of time for developing an in-house marketing system, with the appropriate people, tools, and processes in place. Each month has its own milestones and deliverables.

Month 1

Gathering Insights

Month one is for gathering insights about your business, customers, competitors, and market. Your fCMO interviews you and other stakeholders in your organization. They also perform competitor and market research on their own and by leveraging their network of marketing experts.

Month 2

Blueprint Stage

Month two is the blueprint stage: Your fCMO combines their interviews and research into your foundational marketing collateral. These are customized for your business and define your messaging. They are essential for strategic and tactical campaign planning. Included:

  • Buyer personas
  • SWOT analysis
  • Identified differentiations
  • Style preferences
  • Buyer's journey map
  • SEO analysis
  • Website sitemap proposal
  • Customer narrative/brand script
  • PitchScript (PASTOR framework)

Month 3


In month three, implementation begins. This is when planning meets execution. First, the low-hanging fruit — gaps in your marketing that can be easily filled or opportunities that can be immediately pursued. Your fCMO sets up your marketing team structure, defines roles, and establishes SOPs and best practices for marketing data collection and analysis.

A Fractional CMO is the fastest way to grow your business

The marketing investment that gets less expensive over time.

With the Growth Connect model, your fCMO’s role tapers off as you add team members and develop your own in-house competencies.

Your fCMO’s engagement level moves through phases — from team leader to coach to advisor, finally being replaced by your own in-house marketing executive.*

*You’re welcome to join at Phase 2 or 3 if you already have a successful marketing team and are looking for iteration rather than transformation.
