On average, CMOs make approximately $211K/year. Which is why most SMBs and startups can’t afford to hire a full-time CMO.

Fractional CMOs are part of the On-demand Executives meta trend.

The gig economy is now encompassing senior positions.

In fact, a growing number of companies now list open positions for part-time, virtual or fractional executives (searching for “fractional executive” returns over 130 job postings on Indeed).

Furthermore, a rise in premium talent marketplaces like Toptal and Catalant is supporting this trend by making it easier for companies to find and employ high-end remote talent.
