Let's Work Together

Fractional CMO | Interim Executive

As a fast-growing organization, you may be in need of a new marketing executive, but finding the right one isn’t easy. It can take months to find a new full-time chief marketing officer. You can’t afford to wait. An Interim or Fractional CMO can keep the your momentum going giving you a top level brand marketing resource to create a clear marketing strategy and execute it.

Whether you need cutting-edge, innovative expertise to freshen up your marketing strategy or to completely rebuild it from the ground up. Part-time or full time, for several weeks or many months.

Every day you wait with mediocre marketing practices is another day you fall further behind your competition. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start building tomorrow's success today.


Virtual Chief Marketing Officer

Smaller businesses and organizations rarely have a senior executive focused on strategic marketing. Marketing is usually a set of tasks executed when the need seems to arise, often by whoever is available. Then, when marketing initiatives are not driving as many sales opportunities as expected, you're left wondering why.

You know your business, and your market, but you have a company to run. Is the only solution a full time CMO? That's awfully expensive and for most small businesses, overkill.

If you want what the expertise of the “big guys” at a fraction of the price of a full time executive, let's chat about my Virtual Chief Marketing Officer offering.

Meet Melanie Asher, MBA

I work with businesses to build their brand online and off. I transform the way B2B brands communicate with their target audiences and build out efficient marketing operations to build brands worthy of going viral.

My clients often describe me as edgy, flexible, fun to work with, and engaging. They have won awards like “Best Place to Work” and “Most Innovative” and have been featured in national magazines as a result of our work together.

My expertise is the art and science behind brand-building, consumer insights, and digital disruption whether that is through my Fractional CMO or Virtual CMO services, intensive training or keynote speaking.

(formerly Mel DePaoli, MBA)
