Cindy Skach Fractional CMO
Before working with SMG, we didn't have a well-defined path forward to launch our marketing program in a strategic way. Then, after our first meeting, expectations of what we were embarking on became clear. The plan was articulated, resources assigned, and immediate progress happened. While we have much room to grow on how creative we can be with the campaigns, having a solid foundation to build from is invaluable.
