What Does an Interim CMO Do?

Marketing Strategy

One of the first things your interim CMO will do is develop innovative marketing strategies to drive increased revenue and brand recognition so you don't lose any steam while you're looking for a full-time hire.

Process Implementation

Your interim CMO will work to implement processes that result in greater efficiencies across the organization, leaving the organization in good shape for when your full-time CMO comes on board.

Market Alignment

Since industries change and redirect so frequently, your interim CMO will spend time researching and assessing your company's current position in the market and stay up-to-date on industry trends.

Cross-Functional Collaboration

Your interim CMO will work hand-in-hand with other departments, like sales and customer service, to align marketing objectives with overall company goals and will ultimately drive business growth until you find a full-time CMO.

Transparent Pricing

We work with you and your freelance marketer to write well-defined scopes of work and agree to fixed weekly or monthly pricing.

Matched by Marketers

Our team of experienced marketers personally matches you with the right marketing consultant based on your goals.

Scale Up or Down

As your needs change, update your mix of marketers to tackle your most urgent growth initiatives.

Why You Should Hire an Interim CMO

An Interim CMO could be the key to facilitating or preserving growth in your business. Your marketing team is one of the most valuable assets you have as an evolving brand. It’s the key to filling your lead pipeline and connecting with customers across the buyer journey.

However, as marketing grows more complex and multi-faceted in every industry, it’s crucial to ensure your team has the right leadership to guide their success. A Chief Marketing Officer can assist your business in developing new marketing campaigns, implementing efficient processes, and ensuring cross-functional collaboration. However, finding a full-time CMO isn’t easy.
