You need Howard …

When you can’t afford a full-time chief marketing officer.

When you can’t afford to go without marketing expertise in the interim.

Rent a CMO!

Firms that engage Howard as a part-time chief marketer get a seasoned pro who can hit the ground running – whether for one week a month, two days a week, or full-time for a limited time.

  • It’s one thing to come up with fresh marketing ideas; it’s another to implement them. Howard can help you with both, by offering innovative strategies and moving into action.
  • It’s one thing to have a good month in sales; it’s another to sustain your growth. Howard can help you do both, by creating business development systems and strategies and by providing in-house coaching.

A part-time or interim head of marketing is particularly appealing to those who want to:

  • access high-level strategic thinking beyond a one-day consulting gig but without the overhead burden of a full-time CMO
  • try out the role of a chief marketing officer on a short-term basis and assess the value without having to make a long-term commitment
  • put some marketing systems in place as a precursor to defining, creating and filling a full-time position

You may have had to cut your staff, but you don’t have to cut your results.

If you have these needs, you need Howard:

  • an aging brand that could stand to be reinvented and/or revitalized
  • a firm that’s reached a plateau and is seeking a strategy for growth
  • a domestic practice that is looking to expand internationally
  • a company that’s indistinguishable from competitors and needs a differentiation strategy to win more work and command higher fees
  • a new marketing person who could use coaching and mentoring to get up to speed quickly
  • senior leaders and rising stars who could be more effective marketers, communicators, and rainmakers
