Fractional CMO/Marketing Director

What the Heck is a Fractional CMO?

Thirty years ago, my mom found new clients for her hair salon by putting ads in our local horse trader. She and her business partner spent four Saturdays a year sending postcards to their client lists. In the 90’s, that’s all the ‘marketing’ my mom needed to do to raise a family of three on a single income.

Today’s marketing is MUCH different.

I started my marketing career by building landing pages on Upwork. Very quickly, I discovered that there was a HUGE demand for marketing professionals with technical skills. I had barely learned the basics of PHP and WordPress development, and I was already flooded with more work than I could handle. What’s more, I realized there was a huge need for technical professionals who understood marketing, and vice versa.

After almost a decade of marketing for lawyers through Great Legal Marketing and BenGlassLaw, I decided to launch a new kind of marketing agency to tackle the biggest issue small businesses have in their marketing departments; their marketing often fails to launch.

Most small or mid-sized law firms have small marketing departments with only a handful of dedicated marketing employees (if any). Many law firms have full-time marketers, but often, those marketers struggle to advance the firm’s marketing in a meaningful way.

In today’s technically complex marketing environment, strategic marketing leadership is more crucial than ever. However, not all businesses have the resources to hire a full-time Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). This is where a fractional CMO can help.

A fractional CMO is a professional who provides high-level marketing expertise to businesses on a part-time or contract basis. This allows small and medium-sized businesses to benefit from the knowledge and experience of a seasoned marketing executive without the associated full-time salary cost.
