Overview

Outsourcing webcastIt’s often up to ad operations leadership to navigate and make the case for outsourcing. There are several steps from deciding if it makes sense or your business, finding a partner, implementation, and managing the relationship and workflow. How do you measure success? What parts of the business can be or should be outsourced? How do you present and position it internally? Where can an outsourcing model be applied – from short term and long term projects to staffing?

It’s also important that your outsourcing agency is a true partner. How do you best work with them to create an extension to your team?

Join us for this webcast, that will give an overview of a successful strategy to assess the potential efficiencies of outsourcing certain ad operations functions, getting internal sign-off, implementation strategies and partnership maintenance tips and tricks.
