Overpriced, Underperforming
Underpriced, Over-performing

Internal Marketing/CMO’s

  • Extremely volatile; huge commitment for a startup.
  • Typically in the 200-300k range per year without any guarantee of results.
  • Hard to vet properly/hire additional resources without marketing expertise.
  • No proven, set process – lots of back and forth, testing, headache, delays.
  • Increasingly complex tech sector makes it difficult to find a CMO with the domain knowledge to understand your product market fit

Good For: Fortune 1000,
Late-Stage Venture

Traditional Agency

  • Very few good options; established companies lack up-to-date modern knowledge on technology trends + regulations.
  • Outdated, clunky pricing; paying $100 + an hour for low level marketing support.
  • Business model predicated on outsourced labor and tons of passive clients.
  • Little-to-no experience managing a disruptive, new company like a SaaS startup; marketing lawyers/real estate marketing not startups.
  • Consequent waste of money, even if cheap and waste of time is devastating.

Good For: Lawyers, Real
Estate, Other SMBs


  • Young, diverse team; heavily influential in SaaS community.
  • Trendsetters across multiple niches, continuously up-to-date with trends and regulatory changes internationally.
  • Flat, reasonable subscription pricing based on true difficulty and expertise required for given product; incentives tied to long, deep relationships of radical growth, not quantity of passive contracts.

You Don’t Need A CMO prides itself on transparency and clarity. We want to be on the same page as our clients before writing the first line of copy or running the first ad. These are our most frequently asked questions.

How do you work with clients? (timing, meetings)

We are a very hands on team; generally, this involves us us sharing a slack channel with you and being available as we work 24-7 – we’re equally excited to be working with you.

On all packages, you get UNLIMITED one-on-one’s with our CEO, unlimited slack access., a monthly check in with your account manager, weekly video reports on campaign management, and full access to our backend via the newly updated (2020) client portal.

We’re big on automations and tech, but can adapt our style (email/phone calls) if you prefer. We’ve been there.

What if we aren't satisfied or don't reach the results?

Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan – delays on our end, your end, even industry constraints and obstacles (Like CoVid!) we never would have anticipated.

We have pages and pages of documentation to address various scenarios – we don’t give up on clients. Often, we’ve developed new services or products to address clients where things haven’t gone according to plan.

That being said, our vetting process is very important and the more info you can get us in advance of starting, the more accurate the estimates we can get you.

Do you do design or copy, or do I need to hire other people?

Our full list of services are covered on our solutions pages – in general, we do not do lower level tasks like design unless they are mission critical; we do have relevant team members, but we highly recommend you utilize one of the expert-vetted freelancers in our network.

Why do you work with startups?

Our founders built their marketing skills as founders of tech companies; addicted to the rush of crazy growth, working on You Don’t Need A CMO gives us the opportunity to do this 10x the degree at once.
