Organizations need marketing leaders to come up with new “out of the box” ideas

Smaller companies and non-profit organizations need creative thinking and marketing leadership to come up with new big ideas. “Out-of-the-box” strategies are crucial to be able to connect people to your brand on a more emotional level. 

A great marketing leader creates a coherent marketing plan centered on the customer journey, business data objectives and the competitive landscape for that unique organization. They know how to identify which customers are important, the technology and platforms which are most useful in reaching those customers and the types of content messages needed to activate those segments. They provide the vision and goals and outline the roadmap of achievement.

Do you need a new marketing technology leader for your company or non-profit organization?

If you are in-between marketing leaders and need interim Direct-Digital CMO leadership, we might be able to help. We have led sales and marketing strategies for Select Comfort, Bose, LifeTime Fitness, Vet Brands International, Integrated Care Group, Spreading Hope Network, Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) and Free Wheelchair Mission.
