Unlocking Success with Fractional Marketing Teams

Companies constantly search for innovative ways to stay competitive and maximize their resources in today’s rapidly evolving business landscape. At Collideascope, we have embraced the “Teamlance” or “Un-Agency” model as a game-changing approach to marketing. This article, written by Curtis Hays, founder of collideascope, explores the Teamlance model and how it offers a flexible, agile, and results-driven approach to marketing.

Understanding the Teamlance Model

The Teamlance model, as practiced at collideascope, revolves around the concept of assembling a team of marketing professionals with diverse skill sets on a fractional basis. Rather than relying solely on an in-house marketing department, we tap into a pool of talented individuals who work collaboratively, bringing their expertise to the table when needed. These professionals, often freelancers or consultants, form a cohesive unit that operates as an extension of our internal team.

Advantages of Fractional Marketing Teams

Flexibility and Scalability

At collideascope, we understand the importance of flexibility in the ever-changing marketing landscape. With the Teamlance model, we can scale our marketing efforts up or down according to our client’s requirements without the hassle of hiring or firing full-time employees. Fractional marketing teams allow us to adapt quickly to market changes, launch new campaigns, or explore different marketing channels without committing to long-term contracts.

Collaboration and Cross-Pollination of Ideas

We believe that collaboration and communication are the pillars of success. Our fractional marketing teams excel at integrating seamlessly with our client’s internal marketing structure, fostering a dynamic environment where ideas are shared, strategies are refined, and creativity flourishes. The cross-pollination of ideas from diverse marketing professionals often leads to innovative solutions and fresh perspectives, giving our clients a competitive edge in their marketing efforts.

Overcoming Challenges

While the Teamlance model offers numerous benefits, it has challenges. Communication and coordination among team members can pose potential hurdles, mainly if team members are located in different time zones or have conflicting schedules. However, at Collideascope, we have implemented project management tools, established clear communication channels, such as weekly check-ins, and utilized tools like Slack to overcome these obstacles. This ensures that our fractional marketing teams can collaborate seamlessly, delivering outstanding results to our clients.

Implementing the Teamlance Model

To effectively implement the Teamlance model, we follow a few critical steps at Collideascope. It starts with clearly understanding our client’s marketing goals and objectives. By identifying the specific skills and expertise required, we assemble a fractional marketing team that complements our client’s internal capabilities. Transparent communication, well-defined expectations, and regular feedback loops are essential to ensure a harmonious and successful working relationship.


At Collideascope, we have witnessed the transformative power of the Teamlance model in driving marketing success. By embracing fractional marketing teams, we harness the power of specialized expertise, flexibility, and collaboration while optimizing our clients’ marketing strategies. The Teamlance model has become the cornerstone of our approach, enabling us to deliver exceptional results and remain at the forefront of the ever-evolving marketing landscape.
