Get the
marketing
expertise
you need
without the
over-spend
you don’t.

If you're managing an early-stage startup, you're likely facing two bad marketing options:

You’re about to put someone without marketing expertise in charge of marketing.

You’re about to hire a highly compensated CMO which will increase your funding burn rate.

but now there’s a third and better option:

cmo in a box

CMO In A Box is a marketing program specifically designed to help startups leverage high-level brand design, messaging, strategy and execution without the high costs or risks associated with scaling up staff too quickly.  Simply put, CMO In A Box becomes your ad hoc marketing department.

The end goal is to help you incrementally ramp up marketing and eventually bring the program in house, which includes helping you find the right talent to manage and scale the strategic marketing program we help you build.
