What is a Fractional Creative Team?
A Fractional Creative Team is an external partner, meant to integrate into your existing in-house team to supplement and enhance your creative and marketing strategy. Maybe you aren't ready to hire full-time, in-house. Or maybe, you need additional resources. Either way, our team is your team. In this ongoing capacity, we will manage your content strategy, creative direction, production, photography, and videography needs for your ads, social, website, and everything in between. Plus, based on the structure of most contracts, you get our whole team (with most expenses included) for the same average cost of ONE senior full-time creative hire. A no brainer if you ask us!
How does our Fractional Creative Team work for you?
Our agile fractional creative team offers cross-platform support for your integrated marketing campaigns on a rolling basis. This means, that whatever visual needs you have for new product launches, UGC, web, social, and more, is covered by us. We achieve this by being your one agency(ish) partner, managing different contractors, projects, and creative goals at once. The idea is to scale with you and develop a flow that keeps you planning in advance and supplied with more than enough assets. We work with your brand to stay a few steps ahead of industry curves by strategizing your next month’s needs, coordinating the logistics, learning from last month’s performance, and executing on our findings.Consistently working with the same fractional creative team builds strength, depth, and customer connection month after month, or quarter after quarter. We invest in you, making certain that we are consistently steeped in your brand's culture and spirit.

The Media Capsule by Marika Creative is our trademarked, three (3) month content creation intensive. We have designed this experience for brands to build a large and strategic media library quickly and efficiently. Over the course of three months, you will walk away with a fully developed photo and video language, over 1,000 new creative assets, and a customized Data Asset Manager. This is the new solution for brands who never have enough creative, desire a clear vision for 2024, and are ready to grow like never before.
The demands for maintaining a captivating digital presence are extremely high. The creative output required is constant and many brands struggle to keep up with content creation from all sides (high-end photo and video, UGC, TikToks/Reels, etc.). Long gone are the days where you can just focus on one social platform to build your brand and increase your revenue. Now, you have to take the macro approach to your marketing efforts, covering all your bases, from paid to organic media, to PR, and more. And where you used to be able to simply post about your product and a couple touch points later people would make a purchase, now, you have to build trust and depth. You have to share your story, invite people into a greater vision, and transparently showcase your values to build a connection to encourage a sale. The Media Capsule program was created to solve these problems.
Over the course of three (3) months, we will identify your core brand values, disect your vision, direct and produce a series of photo and video projects to communicate your unique product-market fit, and then file, organize, and tag all of your brand new assets in an accessible Data Asset Management (DAM) system so that you never have to wonder what assets you have and where they are stored again. By hiring a boutique agency like Marika Creative to create custom, beautiful assets to span across all your brand and marketing efforts, you can ensure that your company stands out from the competition and appeals more strongly to your target customer audience. The investment in this elevated media is a function in playing the long-game, as it helps to establish your brand as trustworthy and reputable. Let's increase your revenue and develop intimate connections with your customers, together.
