Our Message to CMO's

We understand your business, More importantly,
We understand your challenges.

TODAY'S NEW CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

Our client CMO’s are leading the digital transformation of their organizations, owning the customer experience, and accountable for attribution of spend to revenue growth. They tell us that it’s more than just managing agency partners and purchasing groups. It’s a job that comes with a full seat at the executive management table and board-level access.

CMO'S CAN'T TAKE THREE MONTHS OFF TO FIND AGENCIES TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS

With the average tenure of a CMO somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 months, our client partnerships and their business models do not have the luxury of time. When that pressure meets with a 90 day review-pitch-award cycle in the agency services world, time and opportunity is lost. We think there is a better way for clients who want fully-integrated thinking or access to a “pick-and-mix” set of services.

We know that something, right now, is burning a hole in your inbox; an issue or opportunity that you don’t have time to address and solve.

Our Approach

EASTPORT'S TWO-WEEK PROOF OF CONCEPT

So, identify YOUR issue, and give us two weeks. We will build a model for you with the category experts across our system. You won’t find this anywhere else. Think of it as agile-development applied to the agency services world. And, we’ll do it on our time and on our dime.
