7 Signs You’re Ready for Outsourced CMO Services

1) You’re Ready to Scale
Every business wants to grow, but to achieve growth you first need a reliable stream of new customers and clients. To attract new customers, it takes careful planning and an expertly executed marketing strategy—but typically, businesses looking to scale for the first time can’t afford a full-time, in-house CMO. Outsourcing a contractor for your marketing services is a cost-effective way to bring the marketing expertise of a full-time executive without the steep cost of a new hire.

2) You Can’t Keep Up with the Competition
With each passing year, the digital landscape becomes more and more competitive throughout every industry. Chances are, your top competitors have begun investing in their marketing efforts—and if they haven’t already, they will soon. With our CMO Assist services, you can immediately begin planning an efficient marketing strategy that will maximize your growth and help you catch up to—or pull ahead of —your top competitors.

3) Your Staff Can No Longer Handle Your Marketing Needs
Many small businesses choose to handle marketing efforts themselves, especially when they first get started. Marketing demands tend to be relatively light, but the more your business grows and the more competitive your market becomes, the more difficult it is to manage all your marketing efforts yourself. If you’re becoming overwhelmed by your marketing needs, now is the perfect time to shift that workload away from your in-house team and into the hands of our marketing experts. Not only does this ensure your marketing is handled by a professional in the field, but it also frees up your team to spend more time on what they know best—helping your business succeed.

4) You Can’t Keep Up with the Latest Marketing Trends
Many of the best practices of today bear little resemblance to the best practices of several years ago. What’s more, marketing trends can shift dramatically over the course of just a single year. At Elevation Marketing, we understand that small and medium-sized business owners simply don’t have the time or manpower to keep tabs on the quickly shifting digital marketing landscape. But that’s part of what we do best!

5) Your Marketing Efforts Are Not Driving the Results You Need to Scale
Many forms of marketing are easy to start doing yourself. However, this kind of DIY marketing often doesn’t drive the results you need. Outsourcing your marketing services is the perfect solution to ensure that your marketing efforts are carefully planned, expertly coordinated, and efficiently executed to maximize the results you need to grow your business.

6) You Don’t Have a Clear Understanding of How Your Marketing Budget is Being Spent
For many business owners, marketing can be a bit of a black box. Money goes in, and sometimes an influx of leads comes out. But more often than not, that money is simply never seen again or accounted for. With our CMO Assist program, we’ll outline exactly how your marketing dollars will be utilized, in order to make the biggest impact on your business. We will clearly demonstrate the results we drive to help you make the most informed decisions moving forward.

7) You’re Ready to Hand the Marketing Reins to an Expert
There’s a reason successful companies choose to invest in marketing: it takes a lot of effort and expertise to make it work! If you’re a business owner, your time is simply better spent on the things you do best, and the last thing you need is the headache of overseeing your marketing efforts. At Elevation Marketing, our team thrives on the challenge of helping businesses grow—and we have the years of experience and ongoing expertise to take your business to the next level.

FAQ

Contractor marketing involves businesses outsourcing their marketing efforts to professional marketing contractors and independent consultants. These consultants may plan, execute, and manage entire marketing campaigns or handle smaller, more specific aspects of a business’s marketing efforts. 

The most reliable ways for general contractors to market themselves is by gathering positive reviews and testimonials, becoming more active in the digital space, and driving more traffic (particularly local traffic) through search engine optimization (SEO).

An excellent first step for a new contractor is to ask for referrals from your first customers. Referral marketing is very powerful for almost any industry, and this is a reliable way to build a network of clients early on.

CMO services is an alternative way to handle marketing for your business. Rather than hiring an in-house team, you can outsource your marketing efforts to an expert contractor who will provide you with strategies, advice, and marketing services to drive growth for your business.

According to Salary.com the average CMO in the US makes between  $294,719 and $415,038 with the median salary being $340,779. For many small to midsize companies, hiring a full time CMO is not in their budget. However, outsourced CMO’s are able to offer the same expertise on an hourly or retainer basis, enabling smaller companies to hire part time or fractional CMOs. 

Companies who are still under $50MM a year in revenue will most likely benefit from a fractional CMO. This is an important growth phase where marketing efforts must be carefully coordinated, but there may not be enough space in the company’s budget for a full-time marketing team.

Contractors in the fractional CMO space typically charge $200–$350 for their services. The exact cost depends on the contractor’s level of expertise, as well as the number of hours a business hires them for.

Fractional CMO services work with a business for a set number of hours per month, much less than the number of hours for a full-time marketing executive. This enables businesses to get the expertise of a marketing expert without the cost of hiring one full-time.
