The Process

Nope. There are no upfront recruiting fees on consulting contracts. We take care of matching you with a top marketer and schedule a free 30 minute introductory call.

If you fall in love with your marketer and want to make them an in-house employee, we do charge a standard recruitment fee (but credit you for the time they have already worked for you).

No problem. Sometimes the chemistry just isn’t there, and we want you to find the perfect match. We’ll connect you with a different marketer free of charge.

We get thousands of applicants a month and accept very few. Our screening process includes: a LinkedIn or resume review, communication skills assessment, screening call, subject matter expert assessment, work sample review, practical exercise, and reference checks.

The Marketers

97% of our marketing consultants are located in the U.S. and Canada. There’s also one really good and crotchety CRO consultant in the UK.

Most of our marketing consultants work from home or co-working space, but we have helped some clients hire freelance marketing consultants that don’t mind coming into their office periodically and working on-site.


Our marketing consultants set their own consulting rates based on their years of experience, specialty, geographic and location.

Rates generally fall into between $80-$150+/hour for mid-to-senior level consultants, and 150-250/hour for more senior (e.g. CMO, VP Marketing) consultants. We also offer 10-20% discounts for 20, 30, and 40-hour commitments.

Note: To make sure we give our freelance consultants good ongoing opportunities, we do ask for a soft minimum of $1500 per month in all our engagements.

We invoice weekly and clients can review charges before they get processed. We currently accept all major credit cards and ACH.
