“You’re getting someone who’s already pre-vetted, someone who is responsible, and who you know they’re skilled in what they do”


 Gretchen Cawthon is the Company President and Lead Developer at Left Right Labs Left Right Labs focuses on helping celebrity wellness experts to build and develop their brands. They have over 15 years of experience in digital marketing and have helped launch over 100 online businesses.


Given the nature of their clients, Left Right Labs needed someone who could get things done in the moment and do them perfectly. This need grew stronger as they started to get more clients thanks to DUDE’s Unlimited Website Service. After reviewing their needs and some deep talks on what kind of service they would need, it was pretty clear that Left Right Labs could benefit greatly from our Dedicated Employee program. This way they would get a qualified employee for their needs, working directly with them on a daily basis and at their time zone.

Why did they decide to give DUDE a shot?

The need to expand their team with at least 1 new core member was there, but the in-house process of searching and hiring the right talent would surely prove costly and time-consuming. DUDE’s Direct Employee program would provide them with the right candidate they needed at a much lower cost and in less time. Left Right Labs had already successfully implemented DUDE’s Unlimited Website Service into their process and was having great results, however having a Dedicated Employee to tackle their urgent daily work an in a more direct way could provide even bigger benefits for their bottom line.

What are some of the successes you’ve had since working with DUDE?

Right off the bat they realized Mark (their Dedicated Employee) was a great fit for their agency, not only in delivering amazing work for their agency but also fitting right in into their company culture. With Mark handling all the urgent tasks that show up every day, Gretchen found herself in a better position to actually take care of their current clients in a more detailed manner as well as having more time to bring more business into their agency. And not only Mark could handle these tasks but he was also able to provide valuable input in their yearly planning meetings as well.

Who do you recommend DUDE to?

After having Mark as a Direct Employee for over a year, Gretchen couldn’t be happier with the results of expanding the services we provide for Left Right Labs. DUDE has become a key partner who really helps Gretchen and her team to THRIVE and expand with less headaches along the way and an incredible team that always has her back.
