CEOs and other C-level executives face similar challenge in their roles.  The requirements for C-level jobs have shifted more towards business acumen and leadership skills.

Ad Age predicts CEOs and Chief Operating Officers (COO’s) want to bring more outsiders into the CMO suite as they look beyond their categories for fresh ideas and new skill sets and according to Harvard Business Review, “to thrive as a C-level executive, an individual needs to be a good communicator, a collaborator, and a strategic thinker … and the trend toward a general business orientation over a functional orientation will continue.”

In today’s business environment, every company – even some Venture-Capital backed firms – cannot afford to internally hire the talent they need in order to meet their business goals. As your CMO For Hire, we provide C-level counsel to executives, develop marketing strategies and offer interim project leadership and support as needed.

Find Your Competitive Advantage

Building market and business intelligence will expand your knowledge. Propel your company. Let you go where your competition does not exist.

“Don’t find customers for your products. Find products for your customers.”
Seth Godin

A well-developed marketing strategy determines the how, where and to whom, your business will find the greatest opportunities to develop products and services, which generate leads to achieve your overarching business goals and objectives.

Do you know the answers to these fundamental questions that will help you achieve your business goals?

  • What’s your position in the market? 
  • Who is your target audience? 
  • Have you established specific, measurable business goals? 
  • What does the competitive environment look like, and how does your business measure up?

The power of market and business intelligence gives you data that allows you to identify fresh perspectives, creative insights, actionable analytics, industry benchmarks and strategic inspirations. That data then allows you to identify evolving customer needs and behaviors, explore emerging market segments, build new capabilities and shape your public profile.

Building market and business intelligence will expand your knowledge. Propel your company. Christina Motley & Associates is that extra hand to help you you go where your competition does not exist.

Marketing savvy, adaptable and fun is how I would describe Christina. While new to the Triangle, she is not new to proven results. Her experience speaks for itself, but my interaction on and offline with her sold me. If you get the chance to connect, partner or work with her, take it.”
