What Are Fractional MDS Services?

Fractional MDS (Marketing Director & Strategist) services provide the leadership and hands-on execution you need. Many companies do not have marketing personnel to both plan and execute a marketing strategy. In fact, often they cannot hire an internal marketing person who has all the skills and knowledge needed. Your Fractional MDS fills this gap by providing strategy, upskilling and oversight.

Fractional MDS is a flagship service of Able & Howe’s In-source Marketing Model™, and is often paired with Fractional Marketing Execution.

Able & Howe’s Approach to Fractional MDS

Our methodology spans three areas: strategy, system building, and upskilling. First your Fractional MDS will audit your business and assist the creation of a marketing plan. The next step is to lead the creation of any required systems and resources to facilitate the plan. Lastly, your Fractional MDS directs the execution and provides instructions to your growing internal team or 3rd party vendor.

Why Your Fractional MDS Is Worth the Investment

Professional marketing leadership

Companies need marketing leadership to grow and prosper. Your Fractional MDS gives you knowledgeable marketing leadership to develop, implement and execute a marketing plan.

Build your internal marketing team

Marketing knowledge should be developed in-house. Your MDS will help select and train the marketing personnel your business needs to execute your marketing plan. Ongoing leadership and direction keeps your business growth on track.

Get access to a team of CMO's

At the core of Able & Howe’s services is knowledge. Each team member has worked on hundreds of marketing campaigns in a variety of industries. In addition, your MDS discusses your account at internal CMO round tables to tap into the expertise and recommendations of the entire group.

Save your time and budget

Not all companies need a full time marketing executive. Our fractional services give you access to executive-level marketing leadership at a cost that fits your budget and for as long as you need it.
