The Future is Fractional. Highly charged, highly experienced, CMO and CRO leaders who work with you on a flexible or contract basis to identify and deliver your growth objectives at pace.

The Problem

91% of UK businesses have curbed growth plans with a quarter citing a lack of skills as the primary reason

Growing a business has never been more difficult. You need the right people, but hiring a full-time marketing team is expensive, time-consuming, and problematic. Plus there’s no guarantee your new hire will deliver the results you need or stay the course.

In fact, on average it takes 9 months to hire a permanent sales or marketing director, £40K in recruitment costs, with a 40% success and retention rate.

Go Fractional

Whether it’s a specific project such as identifying the right strategy for growth, developing a website, breaking into Grocery or ongoing interim support to lead your sales and marketing effort we give you the confidence to take your business to the next level without the usual risks, costs or delays.

We made sure Pool Bank was prepared for the pandemic with a website that didn’t just provide another channel for purchase but represented their unique vintage antiques business.

Using its clear customer proposition and unique offering we developed eye-catching branding for ProcureTech to engage with their core customers and build the brand using a multi-channel marketing approach.

After developing a new proposition for Zen Auto with M&C Saatchi Accelerator we created a new ad campaign for ‘Don’t buy it Zen it’ to introduce the new, faster, more intuitive, and service-led offering.

Don’t just take our word for it

“We chose Mighty Atoms because of their dynamic and flexible approach which was ideal given the challenges faced. They cost-effectively stabilised marketing activity, drove the development of our CVP, and delivered an aligned campaign in a fraction of the time a traditional agency quoted.”
