The on-demand economy isn’t just about getting a bite to eat in a hurry, remote call centre workers or dotcom billionaires working from the beach.
On-demand marketing can transform the way an organisation resources their established marketing function or scales their entirely new business.
It effectively deregulates how businesses access the benefits of A-grade marketing talent to achieve their organisational marketing needs, removing the traditional risks and constraints of full-time headcount.
Put simply, on-demand marketing is about only paying for what you need, when you need it.
Gearing up for an IPO with no CMO?
Marketing Director going on parental leave?
Recruitment process taking forever?
Need interim leadership to get things done?
The on-demand requirements are varied because the level of support your organisation needs, changes over time.
For example, start-ups may not be in the position to hire full marketing teams but may urgently need expert advice to produce investment decks and get their messaging on point when taking innovations to market.
For large corporates, the challenge may be more in keeping their established marketing machine well-oiled while undertaking lengthy recruitment processes.
During mergers, rapid growth or times of uncertainty, organisations may need someone to step in for a few weeks to challenge and coach their teams, achieve more from their marketing budgets and get projects over the line.
Or they need a senior marketer to cover parental leave but don't want to pay agency fees to hire someone unfamiliar with 'helicoptering in' who may take several weeks to get up to speed.
