Why make marketing a profit center?
Business leaders are frustrated by scattershot, underperforming marketing activities. They see expenditures but fail to see a return year over year. Marketing does work, and there is a better way. It’s called profit-center marketing. A fractional CMO or fractional CGO is tasked with developing the profit-center roadmap. The marketing department becomes responsible for sourcing and nurturing qualified leads. There is a clear ROI from marketing efforts, and it increases year over year.
What does a profit-centered marketing department look like?
A department that embraces profit-center marketing is run strategically and efficiently. A strategic marketing plan combines technology and best practices with analysis of the marketing program to gain key insights and make adjustments. The marketing team consists of A+ players that feel a high level of satisfaction from driving results as opposed to simply completing activities.
Who benefits from profit-center marketing?

It’s critically important to high growth businesses, including those that are backed by private equity, because it enables them to scale and drive a high ROI, faster. Companies in competitive and/or commoditized industries also benefit from embracing profit-center marketing because it can be the secret sauce that results in a competitive advantage.
