Aaron was awesome to work with. Always positive and responsive, and very knowledgeable about multiple growth channels (FB, email marketing, influencers). Highly recommend.

Experience

Summary

Many startups can't afford a CMO but also can't afford to neglect growth entirely. I fill this gap for early stage companies by analyzing growth channels, managing teams and building growth systems that can be handed off to a full-time CMO when hired.
