We Drive Growth
For Clients We Love
Using Honest, Data-Driven Digital Marketing
Timeshare CMO is located in the heart of San Francisco, steps away from Twitter, Uber, Yammer, and Pinterest. With experience and connections stretching from the early days of eBay to Y Combinator and 500 Startups companies, we can help you make sense of your marketing strategy and prevent costly mistakes.
How We Work
Flexible spend. When your business pivots, so does your marketing strategy. At Timeshare CMO, we don’t lock you into a contract that doesn’t adjust to your needs.
Marketing for your needs, not ours. If one of our marketing services isn't right for you, we won't recommend it. Simple as that. We won't run a playbook on you.
Reports aren’t enough. Powerpoints aren’t dumped on your desk and considered work at Timeshare CMO. We know how to actually do work, not just tell you what to do.
Learn from us. New marketing apps and strategies are always being announced. With our training program, we teach your team how to use the same tools we use. At Timeshare CMO, knowledge is shared, not hoarded.
Frank advice, real support. Running a business is hard, gritty, emotional work. Sometimes, just talking privately to an experienced Silicon Valley marketer who's been there, done that, can help you solidify your ideas and feel confident in your evaluations of the market, your company, and your competitors.
After 14 years in Silicon Valley, most recently as a founder myself of a technology company, I know what you are going through: sleepless nights, anxiety about hiring and financing, the general feeling of not knowing what you don't know. Whether it's digging into your Google Analytics code to fix a problem, creating a dashboard that actually helps your business, or thinking big picture about how to expand your markets and creatively drive acquisition, I've done it all, hands on. I can pick up the phone and talk to insiders at every major social media and marketing platform to get instant advice for your business. I've hand picked and trained a team of experts to execute the work you need, fast.
I believe technology should meet the needs of people, not the other way around. My Cornell degree in Science & Technology Studies taught me to how to analyze data with a critical mind and to dig deep, past the hype, to find the fundamental problem being solved. Marketing is about people, and I love bringing this experience to our clients, from big tech companies to small mobile startups.
