What Are Managed Marketing Services?

Managed marketing services expand your organization's throughput while providing business continuity and managing risk. Outsourcing is becoming increasingly popular as CEOs are discovering the benefits that it provides.

At Universal Creative Solutions, we are flexible in our approach. We can provide a single marketing consultant with the skills needed, a project team to manage ongoing projects, or deliver a fully outsourced marketing department like digital marketing, ad campaigns, and other services. We work with the client to build a plan that meets their needs for their organization, hire the right team, and manage the people, workflow, schedule, budget, and delivery. The client has access to the outsourced CMO and the performance of the team, all without having to worry about managing the work, the team, the hiring, or the training process.


If you're still curious about how process automation works, we've drafted an FAQ to help answer commonly asked questions. 

Why Does My Business Need Managed Marketing?

Major financial decisions are important forks in the road for your company. While strategic consultant teams may include financial advisors and business tax advisors, you may already have these types of adåvisors on call. In that case, a strategic consultant can focus the support in theorizing and planning out the opportunities or drawbacks that the financial decisions create and the organization-wide changes that may be required.

When Should I Outsource Marketing?

Outsourcing marking is generally a good fit it: 

  • Nobody in your early-stage startup is handling marketing. 

  • You're running marketing campaigns but not satisfied with the results and aren't sure which efforts are effective. 

  • You want to scale your company but need structure and work processes to help increase output and results.

  • You already have a marketing department and would like to have an unbiased opinion from an expert on the marketing strategies and decisions you make 

Why Hire an Outsourced Marketing Team?

Many organizations hire ad agencies to help them design a logo or manage their ad campaigns. How is choosing to outsource the marketing team any different?

The most significant difference is scope. An ad agency typically focuses on a single campaign. Outside of that campaign, you're on your own to market your brand. Working with an outsourced marketing team means that you receive expert service from the top to the bottom of the sales funnel. Also, an outsourced team is responsible for holistic growth, which includes brand awareness, revenue, and even entering new markets. 

If you need to grow fast, outsourcing your marketing efforts is the most logical option. Keep your marketing operations cost-effective and nimble by going with an outsourced marketing team. Whether you're looking to outsource part of your marketing or the full funnel, the right partner can make a big difference. 

What Is a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)?

A CMO is a senior marketing executive joining your marketing department to increase your business efficiency and prevent costly mistakes. They can work with you to launch your new startup or improve your business's marketing performance..

They provide you with a market-based perspective needed to develop a comprehensive market strategy and carry out its implementation. They advise the CEO and other executive members to increase awareness, build loyalty, drive engagement, increase revenues and expand markets. For them to achieve this, they need to have an in-depth understanding of several marketing aspects, including:

  • Search engine optimization

  • Social media marketing

  • Lead generation

  • Content marketing

  • Branding

  • Paid advertising such as Google and Facebook Ads

It's expected that the outsourced CMO is well-versed with all the aspects of marketing, but this doesn't need to be a detailed understanding of the technical matters. They still get to accomplish their set marketing objectives as they work alongside a team of marketing directors and technicians. 

What is a Fractional CMO?

A fractional CMO is a marketing executive within an organization that takes charge of heading the marketing department, which includes marketing strategy, sales development, growth opportunities. A Fractional CMO will work part-time and get paid to complete milestones instead of charging high hourly rates. Businesses typically use fractional CMO services because they don't need a full-time CMO but still want someone with expertise in managing marketing strategy and leadership. 

Fractional CMOs provide flexibility allowing businesses to work with them for a set period to help them accomplish their goals. Financially, it makes more sense to hire a fractional CMO as opposed to a full-time CMO. A full-time CMO requires an expensive salary of multiple six-figures annually plus employee benefits. 

Fractional CMO Responsibilities:

  • Developing the short-term and long-term marketing strategy

  • Solving marketing issues that will arise and need to be resolved immediately

  • Committing to which marketing channels are best suited for your business, like SEO, content marketing, paid advertising, social media marketing, etc. 

  • Leading the marketing team and inspiring employees

  • Hiring new marketing employees and building onboarding systems for success 

The Fractional CMO is the c-suite level marketing strategist who helps organizations achieve their marketing goals. In addition, your Fractional CMO should have a wealth of managerial and marketing experience. Therefore, they are the natural leader of the marketing team. Our Universal Creative Solutions, we act as the Fractional CMO. Thus, we will work closely with both your organization's leadership team and the marketing talent executing the marketing tactics. Whether we work with your existing talent or you decide to use our staff, we're flexible in our approach

How An Outsourced CMO Will Work With or Improve Your Marketing Team

An Outsourced CMO isn't meant to replace your marketing team. Oftentimes, many organizations have a capable marketing team but lack real strategic leadership in their company. By providing strategic leadership, the marketing team can be more productive and implement strategies that align with the missions and values of the organization.

How An Outsourced CMO Can Increase Your Cash Flow and Marketing ROI

When you outsource marketing strategy, you get what you pay for. The increased profitability compared to other employees in the payroll is night and day. After all, when you hire an employee, there are many expenses that your company is required to pay. But when you hire outsourced CMO services, you know that the expenses are going towards an entity that is effective and experienced and can better help you achieve your marketing goals.

Leveraging a fractional CMO over an in-house CMO saves your employees time in which they can do their own jobs, furthering the cost-effectiveness of managed marketing services.

When outsourcing marketing services, you are paying for results, which is the only criteria. Having in-house employees means you're paying people for the time that they spend working at your office. This not only costs you in salaries but indirect expenses such as equipment and office space.

Also, you're not wasting time and resources managing projects that you're not an expert in. Instead, you hire the marketing service expert, whose only goal is to produce results, and you take care of what you do best.
