Frequently Asked Questions
Fractional CRO

Why compromise on a full-time Chief Revenue Officer when you can have specialized expertise at a fraction of the investment? Our Fractional CROs offer a refined, results-driven approach that synchronizes your sales, marketing, and customer success divisions, transforming them into a unified revenue powerhouse. This isn’t mere management—it’s a strategic reengineering of your revenue streams, without the full-time commitment or costs.

Digital Authority Partners provides Fractional CRO services at a standard rate of $350/hour. Typically, our clients request around 20 hours per month. The average full-time CRO might cost upwards of $350,000 per year, factoring in salary, bonuses, and other benefits. We offer you the flexibility to scale our Fractional CRO services according to your specific needs, market conditions, and growth objectives, all while significantly reducing overhead.

While the CRO is traditionally involved in a range of activities from sales to customer success, Fractional CRO zeroes in on the most crucial aspects that directly impact revenue:

  • Strategic Revenue Planning: Formulating and executing revenue strategies designed to outpace goals.
  • Alignment of Sales and Marketing: Ensuring these critical teams are not just in sync but are collaborative revenue drivers.
  • Data-Driven Decision Making: Utilizing analytics to optimize sales and marketing efforts and refine ongoing strategies.
  • Team Development and Leadership: Providing the training, tools, and mentorship necessary to elevate your team’s performance.

In the fast-paced, high-pressure world of C-level roles, longevity is often a rare commodity. The standard industry norm for full-time Chief Revenue Officers usually hovers around 18 to 24 months—driven by various factors including performance pressures and shifting market dynamics.

However, at Digital Authority Partners, we defy the odds. The average tenure of a Fractional CRO with us is significantly longer. Why? Our Fractional CROs are not just placeholders or interim solutions. They are specialized, high-impact executives who come on board with a singular focus: driving your revenue numbers north.

Our Fractional Chief Revenue Officers come in with a wealth of industry knowledge, and they’re seasoned in dealing with the myriad challenges that businesses face in their quest for revenue growth. This robust combination of skills and experience means they can hit the ground running and contribute meaningfully from day one, ensuring a more stable, productive, and long-lasting relationship.

Bottom line: When you engage with a Fractional CRO from Digital Authority Partners, you’re not just getting a service, you’re gaining a strategic partner committed to your long-term success.

Depending on your company’s structure and needs, the CRO role can be known by other titles such as VP of Revenue, Director of Revenue Operations, or Head of Sales and Marketing. Remember, the essence of the role is what truly matters: driving revenue by unifying sales, marketing, and customer success efforts.
