Strategic Marketing Coaching

"We need a marketing guide."

Partner with an executive advisor who will teach a disciplined and strategic marketing approach.

Many companies have capable team members and leaders, but still struggle to achieve consistent results. Lack of alignment, capacity, and focus are common challenges, especially for growing businesses whose entrepreneurial spirits invite frequent change. 

In this environment, it is easy for the marketing function to become reactive: responding to executive or sales requests for whatever shiny object or flavor-of-the-day idea comes along. Resources become diluted as marketing tries to keep pace – and initiatives often get replaced with new ideas before they can fully prove their impact. The business is committing random acts of marketing.

As a result, CEOs and their executive teams often question the value of marketing. They are spending money, running campaigns, and sometimes hiring employees – but they’re not sure what they’re getting as a result of these investments. 

Authentic helps our clients build strong marketing strategies, programs and teams – and understand the impact of those efforts. We do this through our unique approach, which is powered by: Marketers + Methodology + Mindshare.

Our Coaching / Advisory program provides a proven framework to build stronger focus, alignment, and accountability: positioning marketing to be a strategic partner to sales in driving revenue results.

Our Coaches / Advisors are retained 4-8 hours per week, working with revenue leaders and teams to refine their strategic plans, collaborate through weekly cadence meetings, and prioritize key initiatives through a series of quarterly workshops. Authentic Coaches also help client teams engage the right external partners for marketing activation through our vetted Authentic Ally Network™ of providers.
