FAQs

How much time does a Fractional CMO typically spend with our business?

A Fractional Chief Marketing Officer will typically work with you on a set number of days per month to help you achieve your goals faster.

1 day per week can often be enough for most SME's depending upon how aggressively you are trying to grow, and also based on how much of an existing marketing infrastructure is already in place or whether we are starting from scratch.

How much does a Fractional CMO cost?

The average basic salary of a CMO in the UK is £116k, a further £20k a year in bonuses, and if you allow for ER NI of 13.8% (£16,008) and 3% (£3,480)  minimum pension contribution. So in real terms you can expect for a CMO to cost £155,488 a year or a fraction under £13k a month.

You'll be pleased to hear that Fractional marketing support is much more cost-effective. Costs can vary significantly depending upon location and experience, but my Fractional marketing services start from £2,400 a month.

 

Do you deliver Fractional support on-site or remotely?

In short, it depends. If you're a Yorkshire-based business then I will usually work on-site with you for at least half of the time each month, with the other half remotely delivered.

For businesses further afield it very much depends upon your requirements, but the majority of support will be delivered remotely. That being said, I'm a firm believer in Face-time with clients and a core part of the initial engagement will be done face-to-face to ensure I am able to fully get to know the business, your goals and team.

What qualifies you to deliver fractional CMO support?

For more than a decade, I've delivered marketing excellence for a huge range of brands. From family-owned SME's through to global powerhouse brands such as Microsoft, Canon and Xerox.

What size of business do you typically work with?

I specialise in working with B2B businesses of between 15 - 100 employees, as this is typically the point at which marketing becomes a serious focus, the basis of an in-house team is at some point formed, and there is the ability to seriously accelerate growth.

When do I know if it's the right time to hire a Fractional CMO?

A Fractional CMO can shape your future marketing efforts and there are lots of instances where we can make a huge difference.

1. You want a seasoned marketing expert to help you with your marketing strategy

2. You want to invest in marketing but aren't sure where to start.

This is one of the most common reasons to bring someone like myself into the business as I can help you get it right first time. I can also help you understand when is the right time to start building out internal resource and what skillset that person/people need to help catapult

3. You want a fresh, unbiased view of where the business is at and how best to take it forward.

Why would I hire a Fractional CMO?

A Fractional CMO will cost far less than a permanent hire, and you get the benefit of a broad range of industry experience and expertise. You also have the benefit of being able to use the resource flexibly, with projects often being more intensive at the start, and then levelling off to a more consistent resource over time or even transitioning into your in-house resource when the time is right.

What is a Fractional CMO?

A Fractional CMO is a solution for businesses seeking senior marketing expertise that is both flexible and cost-effective. You get access to a Chief Marketing Officer with a proven track record and lots of experience for a fraction of the cost for a full-time equivalent.

A typical engagement will shape your marketing strategy, create an actionable plan, and then be responsible for ensuring its successful delivery to achieve the desired results. 

One of the biggest benefits of hiring a Fractional CMO is that you essentially remove the guesswork by using experienced resource that has proven methods of accelerating growth for Small and Medium-sized businessess.

What sectors do you have experience of working with?

My background has predominantly always been in B2B marketing and spans a broad range of industries ranging from Tech and Professional services, through to Agriculture, Ecology, Manufacturing and Office Fit-out/Construction.

It means you get a great mix of experience from various sectors and also learnings I've taken from working with some of the global powerhouse brands who excel with their marketing.
