Critical digital marketing independent contractor to advise software portfolio


Firm needs consultant to enhance digital marketing efforts across portcos

A PE managing director came to us with a critical need for a product marketing and positioning independent contractor who could advise several of the tech and software companies in his firm’s portfolio on their digital marketing efforts. With the digital world evolving quickly, the firm was in critical need of someone who could help their portcos enhance their digital marketing capabilities to best position themselves against their competitors. The firm was looking for someone who could advise on digital content, SEO, and other marketing activities as it related to each company’s product and brand positioning goals. It was crucial that the provider had industry experience and proven functional expertise.

Firm chooses ideal provider to improve the digital positioning of their portcos

The day after the initial scoping call, the PE firm and portfolio company were introduced to three PE-grade marketing independent contractors that specialized in digital content, SEO, and broader marketing activities for software companies. The client selected their ideal choice. The PE firm engaged the provider and was able to gain confidence in the digital positioning of each company in their portfolio thanks to the advisor’s help.
