What is white label?
White label is a service, offering, or product that can be presented under another company's brand to make it appear as though it is their product or offering.

White-label PPC or white-label pay-per-click advertising is a digital advertising product or service offered by another company that you can resell and offer to your clients. And according to the latest PPC trends, PPC rates are on the rise across several market categories.

Why should you consider offering Vendasta’s white-label PPC to your local business clients?
It’s common for managed service providers to shy away from offering new services they don’t have confidence in selling. Digital marketing is a new frontier for MSPs, and white-label PPC is no exception. Here are some of the primary reasons you should consider if you’re thinking about offering white-label PPC to your clients:
- MSPs can stop referring clients to marketing agencies. Boost your revenue by offering digital marketing services you can cross-sell and upsell to your client base.
- Expand your offering. Become your client’s single source of software and services by offering the digital marketing and PPC solutions your clients are searching for. Don't leave money on the table.
- Bundle software and services to create valuable packages. Bundling strengthens and expands your current offerings. Offering more than one product to your clients creates a stronger MSP-client relationship and will help you retain your clients for a longer period of time.
- Create a self-serve option for your clients under your brand. By offering white-label PPC services through Vendasta’s white label software marketplace, you can create a storefront where you can add not only your existing services, but external third-party products and services as well. Clients can purchase these services from you with a few clicks.
- Fulfillment through a white-label team of professionals. Our team of experts fulfills digital advertising and pay-per-click campaigns under your brand, building your credibility with your clients.
- Scale your business without having to hire. White-label PPC allows you to add a valuable service for your clients. You can generate a new stream of revenue without worrying about the costs related to managing people.
- Provide proof-of-performance reporting. Vendasta’s built-in and automated PPC reporting software helps you prove return on investment (ROI) for digital ads campaigns.
Tapping into new revenue with Vendasta’s white-label PPC
Digital ad campaigns help your clients appear where their customers are already searching for them. Pay-per-click campaigns primarily leverage Google and social media platforms like Facebook to reach a very targeted audience profile. There is a ton of value in offering this type of service to your clients.
Ads are half about delivering leads, but the other huge chunk of it is growing yourself as a trusted marketing expert with that client.
“It builds trust and creates a relationship that will help you with that client down the road. I always start with the client’s definition of success, how they value that success, and what actions they take based on those outcomes to create an approach that ticks all of the boxes,” Vossen says.
