On-Demand Marketing

Expert consulting to move your business forward.

No marketing team? No Problem.

We partner with clients to either supplement their in-house marketing department or serve as their full-service outsourced marketing department.

As your outsourced, on-demand marketing department, we become part of your team and make sure that the right strategies are in place. We ensure that plans align to your business objectives, and analyze data to report and advise on what's working, and what's not.

When you hire us, you’re hiring the equivalent of a team of professionals—the experts you need for successful digital marketing strategy execution (web programmer, graphic designer, usability consultant, content strategist, copywriter, SEO/SEM expert, marketing strategist).

Rent a high-powered marketing team for less than one full-time employee.

With average salaries running from $105,000 to $250,000 (plus benefits, office space, equipment, etc.), an outsourced consultant can be a wise alternative.

For less than the cost of a full-time marketing director we provide strategy, design, content development and marketing plan creation and implementation on a retainer basis. This allows companies of all sizes to benefit from C-level marketing expertise. Plus, you get only as much creative output as you need, when you need it.

Grow your business, not your overhead.

Fractional Marketing

How much additional marketing team do you need?

Fractional marketing refers to paying for only the amount of marketing you require to match the stage your company is in. This is a great option If you're not able to afford a full-time marketing position—we can assist you for 2 days a month, 10 hours a week, 20 days a month, etc. We’re a turnkey marketing department that can help you get more leads, capture market share, or create or build your brand.

Perhaps you have some internal talent within your organization to execute your strategy, but you need someone to orchestrate and oversee these efforts.

Rather than add to headcount, we can serve as your outsourced Marketing Director, helping flesh out plans, assign projects, manage budgets and supervise outside vendors.

We're ready to be productive on day one.

Tradeshows – for many companies, exhibiting at tradeshows has a massive pay-off. We’ll create a show experience (booth, materials, takeaway items, pre- and post-show communication) that maximizes the return on this sizeable investment.

Collateral – do you have collateral for all of the different points in the buyer’s journey, and for all of the people involved in buying decisions? We’ll map out the journey, commonly-asked questions and stakeholders for each stage, then produce collateral that will get people to the sale faster and more successfully.

Social Media Campaigns – successful social campaigns are all about content. Social media content that informs and educates prospects is a huge influencing factor in their purchase decisions.​ With the combination of strategically created content that stands out, posting plan and paid campaigns, we help clients maximize brand reach and recognition on social media. When part of a larger digital marketing campaign, strategic content creation allows for repurposing across multiple channels for efficiency of your budget.

Email automation – nurture leads at their pace through auto-deploying emails, triggered based on action or time, that educate them about your offering and get them ready to buy.

Sales + marketing alignment – improve how you’re nurturing leads, and close more sales with ongoing cross-functional communication and reports.

CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) – if you aren’t tracking leads with CRM software, we can find and implement the best CRM for you. A CRM makes marketing and sales more efficient and effective.

Marketing & sales collateral – we’ll assist your sales team in closing sales and moving more people from consideration to purchase by developing webinars, brochures, slideshows, whitepapers and other sales tools.

Brand design – We are adept at working with startups who have yet to create a brand and need help with their strategy and full execution of their new branding.

Brand architecture – if you’re introducing new products or sister companies, or if customers are confused about your current identity, we'll tweak how your brands are presented so that buyers focus on what matters: buying!

Naming – business and product names matter — a lot. The name you choose should be informed by your budget, brand reputation and competition, among other factors. We’ll lead you through a painless process to select a great name, then take care of the legal and registration nitty gritty.

Product launch – from creative and messaging to ads and customer notices, there are many (often moving) parts to launching a product.

Market research – buyer feedback and opinions can save you thousands of dollars and years of wasted effort. Either working solo, or partnering with a research firm, we’ll devise and run the research project, then present the findings to you.

Website design – a well designed, modern web presence helps people find you, learn about what you’re selling, and moves them to speak with sales. We'll handle everything involved, including messaging, design, construction, deployment for a low monthly cost, allowing you to save your capital for other marketing efforts. Read more about our Website-as-a-Service programme.

SEO campaigns - good SEO requires a complex, multi-faceted approach. We can design a customized plan for your business to get you to the top of search results.

Social media – yes, you should be on social media — even if you’re selling the most esoteric of products. We’ll write and post for the company, and answer buyer and customer messages as they come in.

Digital and analogue advertising – whether your campaign would benefit from digital billboards, animated HTML5 ads, pay-per-click search advertising or magazine ads, we have a lot of experience.

Video – customers love video, particularly during the research phase. From explainers to 5-second video ads used to drive website traffic, we will script, produce, and deploy your new video, not to mention report on their effectiveness. Read more about our experience with video.

Why Outsource Marketing?

Better Results, Faster

We have the software tools, the templates, and vendor connections required to accomplish the job ready to go.

Scaleable Marketing Resources

The amount of marketing support you require may change from month to month. You might need a new website now, and a major product launch later in the year. Our team can scale up and down as needed so you don’t waste a single penny.

Years of Experience

A full-time hire with limited experience needs a lot of guidance. Even if you can lead the marketing strategy, your time is precious. We're like a hands-on CMO. Our years of experience and breadth of knowledge equip us to deliver strategy and execution — no hand-holding required.

Greater Accountability

Our success is measured by business generated and deliverables met. Because we are owner-operators on contract to you, we have a lot of stake in doing an exceptional job. To us, success is a long-term relationship with you and your recommendation of us to others.

Costs Less Than an Internal Hire

In addition to salary, a traditional full-time hire involves hidden costs like training, benefits, office space, software licenses, not to mention time to hire, recruit and onboard. We are a less-costly option than hiring a permanent mid- or senior-level marketer, and much more effective than a junior hire who'll work less efficiently, require direction and will likely move on within one or two years.

More Expeditious

The hiring process is time consuming. Paired with the length of time it takes a new employee to get up to speed, a new hire will delay the start of your marketing—and the results—by a couple of months minimum. On the other hand, through the development of your strategy we'll be well along the learning curve when it's time to put the marketing plan into action.
