Frequently Asked Questions

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.
