Empower your DTC brand with Expertise, Not Overhead

Harness the seasoned marketing leadership of a Fractional CMO without the full-time commitment and heavy compensation.

The laptop screen takes center stage, displaying an ecommerce store filled with a variety of running shoes, hiking shoes, and casual sneakers, all in shades of blue, green, and teal. The low key lighting ensures that the laptop screen remains the primary focus, while the soft illumination emphasizes the vibrant colors and details of the shoes. The atmosphere is contemporary, portraying a modern online shopping experience.

The Fractional CMO Advantage

DTC brands need to scale quickly, but are often held back by limited resources. Optimix Consulting provides seasoned leadership to guide your marketing strategy, keep your agencies in check, and optimize your media mix – all without the commitment and heavy compensation package of a full-time executive.

The luxury 'OPTIMIX' watch, with its blue leather strap and exquisite teal finish, is showcased to perfection. It rests gracefully on a sculpture of intertwined gray driftwood, emphasizing its elegance and design. The backdrop, transitioning from royal blue to green turquoise, further accentuates the watch's prestige and magnificence.

How Does a Fractional CMO work?

Getting great results in eCommerce, especially  when using strategies like influencer marketing, usually take time to fully manifest. Because of this, I typically recommend a 6-month engagement period to ensure we’re both committed to achieving transformative outcomes. Utilizing an agile marketing methodology, I typically work in 3-week sprints, each one tailored to your brand’s unique needs and resulting in hard deliverables.

Whether your brand has validated its business model and is poised for growth, or is still in its infancy, I provide the strategic leadership to effectively scale your marketing operations. With regular reporting and iterative optimizations, I ensure that both strategy and execution are perfectly aligned with your current business status and future objectives.

Your Brand, Your Legacy

You've built a DTC brand that's more than a business - it's an extension of your vision and a reflection of your ambition. But you stand at a precipice. Time is ticking, and there's not enough time in the day to make all the decisions necessary to take your brand to the next level.

Going From Status Quo to Status Symbol

Eventually, all DTC owners face a choice. Stay where you are, where sales are steady and growth is incremental, or take a transformative leap to elevate your brand into a household name.

Optimix: Your Catalyst for Growth

That's where Fractional CMO services are invaluable. Optimix Consulting specializes in turning emerging DTC brands into industry leaders. With my expertise, I optimize your marketing mix to maximize ROAS and boost your LTV/CAC ratio. This isn't just about money; it's about scaling your brand in record time.

Time: Your Most Precious Resource

Time is money, but it's also finite. DTC owners can't afford to make the wrong C-level hire or follow an agency's cookie-cutter strategy. My data-driven approaches have shown results in as little as three months, accelerating your growth without sacrificing efficiency.

The Cost of Inaction

The digital landscape is shifting every day. With AI now mainstream, eCommerce has changed more in the last 5 months than it has in the last 5 years combined. Competition is fierce, and consumers are discerning. The cost of inaction isn't just financial; it's the cost of becoming irrelevant.
