To educate & inform the start up about the new distruptive concept of managing marketing by an experience professional of 20 years like me at extremely low cost
A SMART WAY OF MANAGING BUSINESS – OUTSOURCED CMO
Today, specialist skills are needed for every function in an enterprise- whether it is operations, sales, marketing or even HR. Outsourcing jobs to a skilled agency helps free up resources for core jobs, while ensuring a far higher level of skill for the task at hand.
This helps in many ways- scaling up faster, at a much lesser cost with much better quality output ,is the major advantage of outsourcing.
“Outsourced CMO” steps in to this specialized role - that of your CMO. Cutting the costs of a senior, skilled resource’s salary and providing equal if not better skills, we have the capacity to take on the operations of your entire marketing division. It’s a much better option than going through the pains of hiring, motivating & retaining an expensive senior marketing resource. While this role may be misunderstood as another agency or a consultant contract, it is distinctly different. We work just like a regular marketing manager for any company with the same KRAs, as for a full time resource. The added advantage is the skill, knowledge and deep experience of the founder of the “Outsourced CMO’, which ensures delivery of an impactful marketing strategy backed by more than 2 decades of marketing & communication experience.
Besides giving a considerable cost benefit compared to a full time marketing resource, this model works on plug n play model wherein the concept can be integrated with the company’s existing marketing objective at any point of time, without any changes in the structure. The practicality and efficiency of the Outsourced model has been proven by four successful integrations in four different companies across varied verticals, over just 9 months of being in business!. Outsourcing marketing is smart business sense. Do you think you should be there too???
No particular requuirement as this is an open session where participant can ask questions related to marketing
I have more than 19 years of integrated marketing experience across industry verticals, with a fair amount of experience in establishing new products / brands in India from the scratch. This includes making a brand preferred amongst the consumer , channel, SME, corporates etc…
Currently working on ” Outsourced CMO” model where we provide marketing planning, support & implementation to various small & mid size companies in the field of manufacturing , services , products, e-commerce & technology who wants to create a brand space for themselves without hiring an expensive marketing resource. We specialize in providing an Integrated Marketing Solutions combining both traditional as well as modern marketing tools through our domain specialist on a shared or on full time basis. This works out to be a very cost effective model for any organization as there is no need for investing in hiring full time Marketing Manager .
In my past professional career, I have worked on some key differentiating marketing assignments like:
• ePoints program , the most effective & widely acclaimed channel program for HP • Loyalty program for SME/SMB for toners & cartridges for HP thereby making HP the dominant player in consumables • Launch of 64 bit processor in India for AMD • Retail marketing program for SanDisk thereby achieving No1 position flash based storage products • Brand Campaign for Tata Power Solar post the exit of BP in solar space from India
With the above enriched experience I am sure I will be able to contribute to companies specially SME / SMB in terms of creating brand & other marketing activities through my “Outsourced CMO” model
