Get Strategic Marketing Leadership without Excessive Overheads

Real Marketing Transformation can be your Fractional Marketing Director, or Fractional CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) to clarify your marketing strategy, implement your growth plan and provide strategic marketing leadership.

What is a ‘Fractional’ Marketing Director or ‘Fractional’ CMO?

A Fractional Marketing Director or Fractional CMO is a highly experienced marketing consultant who leads your business’s marketing on a ‘part-time, fractional basis’. As a Fractional Marketing Director, I can develop your strategic marketing plan and growth plan, providing strategic direction to drive growth, without you having to pay for the high overheads of a full-time salary and benefits.

Fractional Marketing is a Game-Changer For Business Growth and Transformation

As a Fractional Marketing Director or Fractional CMO, I’ll typically spend 1-2 days per week working closely with my clients, transforming their marketing:

  • Reviewing existing and past marketing assumptions and approaches, and identifying strengths, weaknesses and opportunities.
  • Understanding marketing challenges and issues.
  • Analysing customer needs and personas, your products and pricing strategies.
  • Developing marketing strategies and solutions to achieve your business objectives and realise your vision.
  • Creating effective branding, positioning and clear selling messages.
  • Implementing customer journeys and sales funnels to improve conversion rates.
  • Developing content plans to attract and engage customers.
  • Reviewing, coaching and mentoring in-house marketing teams.

Christopher Lamotte is a chartered marketer who has provided full service marketing consultancy for more than 250 SMEs over 30 years, so can provide the time, strategic insights, multi-channel marketing skills and expertise that you need. This will ensure that you develop a robust, clear marketing strategy and growth plan which can be executed fast, creatively, cost effectively and ‘on strategy’.

For more than 20 years, before the terms Fractional Marketing Director or Fractional CMO had been invented, I have been working with many clients as their Virtual Marketing Manager or Virtual Marketing Director for 1 to 2 days per week – often on a long term, partnership basis for 1 year, 3 years or even 10 plus years. That means that I have more than 20 years of ‘fractional marketing’ and marketing leadership experience.
