Do any of these problems sound familiar?

I can't seem to get my business to stand out. 
I can't close my leads, am I even targeting the right people?
I'm spending so much money on "marketing" and I have no idea if it's working.
I keep having to lower my prices to stay relevant and I can't grow that way!
I'm always overwhelmed and working around the clock. This isn't sustainable.

What is the difference between marketing strategy and marketing tactics?

A marketing strategy refers to a company's overall plan or approach to reach its target audience and achieve its marketing objectives. It involves identifying the target market, analyzing the competition, and determining the most effective marketing mix (i.e., the combination of products, pricing, promotion, and distribution) to reach and engage potential customers.

On the other hand, marketing tactics are the specific actions or efforts a company takes to implement its marketing strategy. These include advertising, social media campaigns, email marketing, events, and public relations efforts. Marketing tactics are typically more specific and focused on executing a particular aspect of the overall marketing strategy.

In summary, marketing strategy is the big-picture plan that guides marketing efforts. In contrast, marketing tactics are the specific actions to implement that plan.

How can I find a Fractional CMO for my business?

Here are some tips on how to find a marketing consultant for your business:

  1. Determine your needs and goals: Before beginning your search for a marketing consultant, take some time to figure out what you're looking for and what your goals are for your business. In what areas of your business do you need help? A clear vision of your goals will make the search process more focused and efficient.
  2. Research online to see which consulting companies are the most reputable in your industry. Then contact them to see if they offer marketing consulting services.
  3. You can also look for marketing consultants who work independently from larger companies and offer their services to businesses for a fraction of the price. Make sure to schedule an introductory meeting to learn more about their background and experience before hiring them.
