Fractional CMO

The Fractional CMO Program gives you complete oversight and direction of your marketing without needing to hire a full-time marketing executive.

Rigorous, data-driven, and high-touch; this service is ideal for making big changes to your marketing program.

  • You want to build formal systems, structure, and measurement into your marketing.
  • You want to grow quickly but your marketing team isn’t equipped for handling that growth.
  • You want more visibility into the performance of your marketing channels.

What if you could…

  • Deepen your understanding of your target market and why they buy.
  • Continuously refine your marketing strategy based on what works.
  • Attract new customers at a predictable and profitable pace.
  • Increase average order value, frequency, and lifetime value.
  • Create organization and control in your marketing program.
  • Build around the KPIs and activities that drive your success.
  • Develop marketing systems that become an asset to your business.
  • Be able to track the success of your initiatives with clear and unambiguous data.

Pricing and Terms

The Fractional CMO Program is customized to your specific needs. It starts at US$7,500/month with a 3-month commitment period. Monthly payments are due in advance.

Note: I am selective about who I take on for this service and will only do this for a limited time until you hire someone more permanent to manage the day-to-day responsibilities.

“Since hiring Elom to oversee our marketing two years ago, we’ve grown from two to five locations with a 285% increase in monthly recurring revenue while maintaining a 3.5% average marketing cost during that period.”

  • You believe results take time but compound with consistent effort & refinement.

  • We’ll analyze your positioning and decide the best plan to capitalize on your strengths.

  • You may send proposals, work drafts, supplier reports, marketing materials, and designs for me to review.

  • Every six months, we’ll go through the process of analyzing what is working and develop a plan for the next phase.

100% Money-Back Guarantee

If we’re not a good fit, I don’t want your money. If you’re unsatisfied for any reason after the first 30 days, I’ll refund my entire fee in full.

“What I appreciate most about working with Elom is the flexibility, experience, and knowledge he brings to our marketing. We are able to leverage his industry contacts to better educate ourselves, as well as come up with content and an image that clearly displays our brand and culture. We couldn’t be happier.”
