How Marketing Consulting Firms Can Fuel High-Growth Companies 

For high-growth companies, we tend to think that the type of model used by marketing consulting firms is more effective. In Year One of your marketing, you need to focus on building your marketing infrastructure. In Year Two, you’re really pushing the pedal for demand generation and lead generation. In Year Three, you’re starting to work towards optimizing analytics and measurement. All of these different phases of marketing require different expertise and perspectives.

No one person has all the answers. That’s why embracing the fractional CMO and marketing consulting firm combination in a high-growth scenario is a good option.
