How quickly can we get started?
We work like a product team: quickly and intentionally. We’ll start with a discovery call to ensure that we’re a fit for your needs, then your account manager will set up a call to review an implementation plan with you. Once the scope is agreed upon, a deposit has been paid and our contract is signed, we can typically kickoff within a week.
What kind of companies do you work with?
We specialize in helping B2B and consumer tech products achieve rapid growth. We often work with clients to solve challenging problems, hit milestones leading up to a fundraising event, or to accelerate growth immediately after raising capital. Whether we’re launching brand new products or helping to grow companies that have found product-market fit, we focus on finding the right tactics to hit major milestones and sustain growth beyond our engagement.
Why should we work with you?
We started Constellation to help other companies figure out exactly what we wish we knew when we were in their position ourselves. We’ve been there and we know that there are endless competing strategies for growth. What we do best is cut through the noise and make it clear and easy to prioritize what’s most important for your company.
We don’t believe that conventional wisdom or best practices are always the answer. Instead, we run experiments to hone in on the clearest drivers of success.
What’s different about working with you?
Rather than acting as an outside agency, we think of ourselves as part of your team. That means we’ll never leave you in the dark about what we’re doing and we’ll always tell it like it is.
Just like a startup we’re fast, nimble and conscious of the need to get the most out of your resources. We’ll never encourage you to spend more money on marketing than you really need to to achieve your goals, and we won’t lock you into working with us forever in order to benefit from our systems. Instead, we tailor our services to meet your needs, and we’ll even train your team to take over for us when we’re ready.
We haven’t hired an in-house marketing person yet. Can we still work with you?
Yes! Our teams can act as an interim head or marketing/growth for your team until you’re ready to hire in-house. We often work with companies before they’re ready to hire a marketing lead, or before they’re certain what type of marketing hire to make next.
We already have a marketing team, why would it make sense to work with you?
We work with companies that need to fill gaps across the marketing mix. Marketing is increasingly specialized, making it extremely difficult for marketers to work across the funnel, from acquisition to engagement to retention, while also managing strategy and brand.
We’ll tailor our services to meet your specific needs and help you prioritize initiatives that will get you to your goals. As your team expands, we can train your marketing hires to get the most out of the marketing infrastructure that we put in place.
Who do you typically work with at a company?
We normally work directly with a head of marketing, head of product or CEO.
How much budget do we need to commit to?
We can help you match the appropriate budget to your marketing goals and timeline. We don’t take a cut of your advertising spend, so we’re never incentivized to spend more than necessary to meet your goals. We start by understanding the critical events you’re aiming for, then we work backward to set a budget.
How much does it cost to work with you?
Our fees depend on the scope of your project and the length of our engagement. Please get in touch to request a quote.
What’s the timeline of a typical engagement?
Most engagements last 6-12 months. While we don’t require a six month minimum, we do recommend committing to this timeframe to see the most impact from our work.
