How to Efficiently Outsource Digital Marketing Services (Ep. 12)
In this episode of Whiteboard Wednesday, i.e. episode 12, Chad Kodary, CEO of DashClicks, discusses efficiently outsourcing digital marketing services. So, if you are a marketing agency looking to offload all the hard work instead of doing it in-house, read on.
I’ll also discuss how to use an outsourcing partner efficiently. To begin, you can do the following:
- Scale-up fulfillment
- Focus on the front-end of your business, i.e. sales
- Let a white labeled company like DashClicks handle all the back-end work
It will keep your hands free to focus more on sales and revenue for your agency. So, first and foremost, let’s talk about why agencies cannot scale.
Here at DashClicks, we provide white label fulfillment services. DashClicks is a white label platform for marketing agencies and your clients. Thousands of agencies use our platform and white label fulfillment services, and we’ve been doing this for a long time.
How to Scale Up Efficiently?
We’ve seen a lot of trends, and one of the biggest trends that we’re shocked to see here at DashClicks is the number of agencies failing to scale. Why does it happen? Why do agencies fail at scaling their fulfillment and their services?
There can be different reasons for that. So, let’s discuss how to avoid those issues and scale up efficiently.
Disadvantages of Using Multiple Vendors
The first reason most agencies fail at scaling and creating scalable fulfillment is that they use multiple vendors. For example, someone uses DashClicks for SEO services and other white label fulfillment partners for their Facebook Ads, Google Ads, and content requirements.
The drawback of such a practice is that it leads to chaos as different vendors have different processes, contact persons, and schedules. Such a matrix leads to a management disaster that can drive you insane. Furthermore, it prevents scaling, especially if you have numerous clients. This system may collapse if you have 50-100 clients.
Imagine your team members interacting with a dozen teams and white label partners. It makes it very difficult to keep the data streamlined and organized in one place.
The entire practice may become inefficient if you put 50 clients through these processes.
The Takeaway: Never fall into this miserable matrix of using multiple fulfillment partners. This process is not sustainable.
Experience the Difference With DashClicks

- Your clients get their own client dashboards where they can see their reports
Apart from that, there is no need to deal with different freelancers when you use our platform. It increases your overall efficiency.
Disadvantages of Using Freelancers
There are many disadvantages to using freelancers. They disappear suddenly, citing different excuses, and they may steal your clients. And that’s not the way you would want to scale up your fulfillment partnerships, especially at the beginning.
The most efficient way to do it is to get it all done by one vendor. They will produce quality results and help you maintain consistency. The most significant advantage of using reliable white label partners is that they will help you scale, whether you add five or 100 clients.
The Takeaway: You can use freelancers in an emergency, but you shouldn’t make it a long-term strategy. It’s not a sustainable practice.
Scale Your Way up Using a Single Dashboard
While choosing a white label service partner, you need to ensure that you can offload all of your customers. They should have one dashboard to log into, so you can easily manage and track all your projects, quickly.
Life becomes more manageable when you create a system that can do things consistently to scale your business. On the flip side, management becomes a nightmare with multiple vendors, and you are always busy firefighting. So, hiring a reputed white label fulfillment partner is a winning solution for your business. With just one team to speak to, you can save almost 70% of your productive time.
Benefits of Having One Point of Contact
When you order fulfillment services from DashClicks and get onboard for the first time, you get a 30-minute onboarding call with your account executive. You’ll interact with the DashClicks team using Slack Workspace. You can also give its access to your employees.
We assign a dedicated account executive and a client success rep to your account. They will help deliver your work with our fulfillment teams on the back-end.

We are not talking about your efficiency at the front end of the business. To produce quality results at scale, you need to have robust processes in your fulfillment department. To achieve that, you should avoid the following:
- Missing tasks
- Not making and working on a schedule
The inability to make a routine and stick to it is also responsible for the failure of many businesses. Along with energy and resources, you should also have a winning strategy and robust processes.
