What Drives Us
CMO Exponential (or CMOx® for short) is a US-based organization with a team scattered across the states. Our “CMOx’ers” are talented marketers and communicators who care about the businesses they work with. It’s not enough for a CMOx to just “be a marketer.” We hire for passion and purpose; we hire marketers who actually want to do good in the world.
When you hire CMO Exponential, you’re not just hiring a solo marketer, you’re hiring a team of vetted marketing strategists and leaders. When your business hits a marketing roadblock, your CMOx® can come back to the team and strategize with us, utilizing years of experience with hundreds of businesses to come up with a breakthrough solution.
CMO Exponential was founded by former Tulane University lecturer and professor Casey Slaughter Stanton after he found that most startups and even successful businesses are making the same mistake over and over: hiring a tactic-focused marketer (aka the Facebook Ad guy) to handle all marketing and marketing strategy for the business. This typical hire leads businesses down a road of limited visibility, with too many blind spots to name. When it comes to marketing, what we believe your business needs instead is a platform-agnostic-marketing-strategist who can translate your vision into testable, scalable marketing campaigns.
Since 2008, Casey has consulted with over 150 businesses to improve their marketing strategy. He created the Functional Marketing® Framework while acting as a part-time CMO for two of those companies. His system was so effective that it turned a failing 7-figure business around in 4 months and took the other business to their highest revenue months on record.
The CMOx Functional Marketing® Framework is the cornerstone of the training all CMOx’ers receive. We take their marketing expertise and hone it into a structured, repeatable, proven process that we then apply to your business. It is with this process that our CMOx’ers will make your business successful month after month, year after year.
Because the purpose of business is to create a customer, the business enterprise has two–and only two–basic functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs. Marketing is the distinguishing, unique function of the business.
