Challenges That Fractional Marketing Can Handle

Digital Marketing Strategy

Imagine having a customized, industry-best online marketing strategy by an experienced, world-class marketing team with internal knowledge of your organization. Fractional marketing teams pair senior marketing roles with your in-house marketing team, supplementing and improving your marketing efforts and strategy as a whole.


Content Creation and Content Marketing

Skip the outsourcing maze and grab the content gold. Fractional teams cut agency bloat and offer seasoned writing, video production, graphic design, and more, all backed by a rock-solid content strategy, brand alignment, SEO, and content marketing efforts. We employ the latest AI tools along with subject-matter-expert copywriters, all without sacrificing quality.

Content can easily overwhelm marketing teams. You can get content marketing expertise on-demand, paying only for your needs. There is no overhead, no bloated retainers, just fresh, targeted content that fuels your marketing engine and delivers measurable results. 

Analytics and Reporting

How do you justify spending on marketing agencies and contractors without proof of their value? While agencies can offer time sheets and allocation information, fractional marketing team members meet the exact expectations of their in-house counterparts. You get one system for tracking ROI—no more toggling back and forth, comparing and contrasting.


Website Design and Development

Web design and development is often the most technically challenging area of digital marketing and is often outsourced to a low-cost overseas provider. But scattering and skimping on design and development often results in inconsistent work and tech debt.

A fractional marketing team is embedded in your organization and can bring consistency, accountability, and transparency to your web design and development—not to mention beautiful results that move your business forward.


Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a core component of any digital marketing plan. Unless you’re lucky enough to have someone with extensive SEO expertise in-house, your business needs an expert’s help to navigate SEO’s evolving challenges. A fractional marketing team can roll their expertise into your existing team operations, KPIs, and goal-oriented dashboards. 

Digital Advertising and PPC

Like SEO, digital ads and PPC are part of a highly technical field that is continually developing. It would take a substantial marketing budget to justify the employment of a full-time employee devoted exclusively to the operation of digital advertising and PPC.

In-house teams must know the fundamentals of pay-per-click (PPC) and programmatic ads, bidding, and budgeting. A fractional team can co-create and continually optimize your ad campaigns.

Social Media

B2B brands often rely on agencies or contractors for social media marketing tasks, audits, and paid marketing campaigns. Social media can seem robotic, feature inconsistent messaging, and not hit goals such as brand awareness or lead generation without detailed access to day-to-day activities and multimedia resources.

It usually takes an internal team member to establish an editorial calendar with genuine consumer, employee, and stakeholder feedback. Fractional marketing professionals have the content marketing know-how and internal team visibility to own these initiatives.


Email Marketing and SMS

Fractional marketing brings seasoned email and SMS heroes to your corner, not an outsourced campaign that could damage your reputation and email deliverability. Our pros seamlessly blend into your team, crafting campaigns that resonate and convert. Let fractional expertise deliver inbox brilliance and watch your brand take flight.
