Every day, the marketing playbook is transforming radically. At MatchCMO, we believe modern marketing has a hub-and-spoke structure. The CMO is in the middle, with roles akin to product manager, marketing strategies manager, advertising director, PR manager, market-research director, designer, copy writer and social media director creating the spokes and rim of the wheel. Silos are finally nonexistent; the integration and interconnectedness of this new model enables full coordination of all constituents.
We’e assembled a formidable cast of expert “spokes” and a proprietary “Match playbook” methodology that is powerful, tactical and seamless. We Study. Think. Innovate. Commit. Plan. Design. Prototype. Measure. Correct. Integrate. 24/7.
