How it Works

Chief Marketing Officer Independent Agents (CMO-IA) are independent contractors of CMOco. They will submit a W-9 upon joining the business and will be issued a 1099 at the end of the year. The CMOco-IA is responsible for managing all tax withholdings and personal tax filings.

The CMOco-IA pays an initial fee to be fully integrated into the company, leveraging the established brand, the company’s resources, and it’s unique value proposition. CMOco will provide training, marketing materials, templates and back office support.

CMOco Independent Agents are responsible for obtaining their own clients and managing their own client accounts. Depending on the scope of work sold by the CMO-IA, they will determine what work they will manage on their own, and what work may need to be passed through to the home office for resource support. This enables the CMO-IA to realize a profit on services sold, without having the burden of actually performing the services.

About CMOco

CMOco was founded officially in May of 2011 by Cornell MBA and seasoned Chief Marketing Officer, Lori Asbury, in partnership with a Knoxville, Tennessee based digital marketing company.  In 2015, Lori Asbury bought out her partner’s share of the company making CMOco a sole woman-owned and operated business.

Lori and her then partners conceived of CMOco when they realized many businesses, anywhere from startup to 100MM range, could benefit from strategic marketing expertise, but were unable to afford it full-time. What many businesses settled for was hiring a mid-level marketing manager. While these junior employees were able to manage many marketing functions, the approach was non-strategic and generated very little results. Lori believed that by forming a small, yet highly experienced marketing team, she could serve the marketing needs of these companies with high-level strategy, through the day in, day out execution, and do so more effectively and efficiently than a junior-level, full-time employee.
