Realign Your People

We begin with building up your marketing team and their skills. Together, we work to ensure your messaging and strategies align with your stakeholder persona communities.

Realign Your Strategy

Next, we align your marketing strategy to a values-driven framework. We begin by identifying your 3 Core (values, beliefs, and communities). Then, we build out the other framework components based on the specific characteristics and needs of your business.

Realign Your Habits

Finally, we identify and develop the tools and systems your team needs that will allow them to do their work in a sustainable, optimized way. Our aim is an in-depth transformation that supports your long-term goals.

What is a values-driven brand strategy, and why is it different from other branding and marketing structures?

For decades, marketing departments have operated on an “ends justify the means” mentality. This means that if it works, we use it, even if the impact isn’t in line with our values.

In today’s hyper-data-driven world, it’s easier than ever to manipulate people into buying from you. We’ve all accidentally-sort-of-on-purpose done that a time or two.

We get it—we’ve been there too. Some savvy bro-marketing brand (we’re looking at you, 20-year-old Facebook Ads Coach on Instagram) swears he can teach you how to get all the leads you ever needed in six simple steps. So, we follow his lead and set up a prospect funnel with gross-sounding tactics like a “tripwire offer” and a “squeeze page.” You might wonder why these tactics sound more like a way to collect on a bad debt than gain a raving fan. But you do it anyway because, well, it works, right?

And it might, for a while. Until an algorithm changes, a consumer base gets wise to what’s going on, or you just feel so out of alignment with your integrity that you can’t do it anymore.

Traditional marketing tactics are easy, but they aren’t sustainable in the long run. It takes a conscious—and courageous—choice to use marketing that puts people first and is guided by your company values, not just sales.

That’s where Do Better Digital™ comes in. With a proven, values-driven framework, we help you build a sustainable marketing strategy that leaves you feeling awesome.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a fractional CMO?

A fractional CMO is a part-time marketing executive who is typically hired on a temporary, contractual basis to oversee a company’s long-term marketing strategy. 

This kind of marketing leader is not directly involved in the production aspect of marketing. Instead, they bring a top-level perspective that can analyze gaps in people, resources, and tools and provide solutions for creating a more sustainable and effective overarching strategy.

What size company should hire a fractional CMO?

You should consider hiring a fractional CMO if you already have an in-house marketing department but can’t yet afford the hiring package for a full-time CMO.

Hiring a fractional CMO gives you access to high-level marketing expertise with a more manageable price tag. If you’re a team of double digits (or more) and feel like you’re lacking leadership and strategic vision around branding, marketing, and sales, a fractional CMO might be for you.

Why hire Realign Consulting for fractional CMO services?
