We’re Makk. And we’re not like other consultancies.

We offer specialist marketing support to ambitious startups. Acting as a CMO, and thinking like a Venture Capitalist, we know the tools you need to reach your customers and access your next round of funding.

Does this sound familiar?

You’re up and running; you’re bootstrapping or you’ve raised some seed funding and now you need to accelerate growth. But scaling a business leaves little time to think about marketing, never mind pay for it. Hiring is difficult and high-level strategic support is expensive.

You need Makk.

We use our experience of scaling start-ups to help you reach your growth targets more quickly and reach your next funding round, without a hefty cash outlay.

We’re not like other consultancies and we’re certainly no agency. Think of us as a CMO-as-a-Service.

Make decisions like a CMO

We have the industry and multi-channel marketing experience required of a CMO, but not the hefty compensation package to go with it. Think of us as a CMO-as-a-service.

Scale at the right speed

We have the practical experience required of a growth advisory and we’ve walked a few miles in your shoes, too. We go beyond monthly board meetings to help you scale at the right speed.

Execute campaigns like a top agency

We have significant marketing agency experience having started, built and managed multiple marketing agencies over the last decade. We know how they work and how to utilise their services to execute effective campaigns.

Avoid costly mistakes

We bring the best aspects of consultancy at a significantly reduced rate. We not only strategise and outline a growth plan, we’ll ensure it’s delivered too.

When we partner with a business, we offer three things. We know that these 3 areas provide ambitious startups with the resources they need to succeed:

Our Knowledge

45 years collective experience in marketing startups combined to help you scale your business. Some people call it growth hacking, we just call it marketing.

  • Marketing strategy
  • Customer acquisition
  • SEO / PPC Strategy
  • CRM / Retention strategy
  • Growth advisory
  • Marketing Technology
Our Network

Sometimes who you know is just as important as what you know. We can help you to make the right connections to facilitate growth.

  • Agency procurement / management
  • Access growth capital without dilution
  • Investor introductions
  • Acquirer introductions
  • Strategic partnerships
Our Commitment

We're not looking for clients; we're looking for long-term business partners. Success means sharing the same goals and objectives.

  • Long term partnership
  • Revenue share in lieu of retainers
  • A focus on value delivered
  • Business partners, not consultant-client relationship

Who we work with

We choose long term partnerships over retainers. So it’s important that we have absolute faith not only in your business, but in your leadership team.

Equally as importantly, you must have that same trust in us and what we can deliver. About you:

  • You’ve raised one round of investment OR can demonstrate adequate seed funding OR are bootstrapping
  • Your offering is innovative or disruptive, or you can confidently evidence product-market fit
  • Your business has your absolute focus and your faith; it’s not a side-gig and it’s not a punt
  • Your culture and ethos is a good fit with our own
