  • I’m a proactive, offense-minded leader who’s stuck
  • Business is strong, I'm building for the next 18 months
  • I felt like things were working until they weren’t
  • I’m interested in the connection between revenue, cost and serving the customer better
  • I want focus and attention from my partners
  • I value the thinking behind what’s being done
  • I have something to prove
  • I think experiments help us stay market relevant
  • My business is not in the city and it’s hard to find talent that wants to work on our service
  • I’ve tried on my own, I’ve gone to the freelancer
  • I can’t - or don’t want to- hire full-time expertise
  • I think marketing makes selling easier
  • I have a budget that can fund senior expertise
  • I support an established challenger brand
  • I’m interested in identifying the right question to be asking
  • I’m looking for practical ways to use what I have
  • I’m interested in the outcome more than tactic
  • I’m willing to make decisions and try new things

Is Rogue NOT Right for Me?

Business leaders in these or similar situations have not enjoyed the process of going Rogue:

  • Think strategy is important… but not as important as just doing stuff
  • Talk about tactics more than problems marketing will solve
  • See marketers as the arts & crafts department
  • Prefer and value a big-name agency
  • On last round of funding; our last chance to make an impact
  • Don’t believe in what Rogue believes
  • Have missing pieces in their marketing foundation, but can’t invest time to build them
  • Delegate oversight; don’t get in the trenches
  • Hide Rogue; not willing to introduce to other members of their organization
  • Antagonistic toward team; need group to “do what I say”
  • Don’t want to break things, so hesitate to implement things
  • Hope that “this” marketing project will be "the" silver bullet
  • Have a lot of business constraints
  • Are only concerned with delivering activity
  • Would rather be busy than fix source of issue or identify right questions to answer
  • Are not allowed to take a risk
  • Are a newly formed business
