Google Tag Manager Consulting

Google Tag Manager Consulting

Two of the biggest issues we see businesses face when it comes to adding marketing and vendor tags to their website is deployment delays and developer workloads. Web developers and IT are often overloaded with requests coming in from multiple directions and sometimes much needed tag implementations have to take a backseat. That's a tough position for marketers to be in, you have a business you're trying to market and missing the ability to effectively measure your current efforts while collecting data to uncover opportunities is crucial to your business growth.

In 2012, Google recognized this problem and created a free solution called Google Tag Manager, helping make tag management simple and easy for marketers, and alleviating request burdens for web developers and IT personnel.


What is Google Tag Manager (GTM)?

Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a free tag management solution that allows you to quickly implement tracking, conversion, and remarketing tags across your website and mobile apps. It's intuitive enough for marketers without a background in development to use and configure, giving your marketing team the competitive edge it needs to track engagement on your website and swiftly take advantage of opportunities found.

Simply insert some Javascript on your website with your Google Tag Manager code and begin to collect and send data to different third party tools, including Google Analytics, Google Adwords, DoubleClick, AdRoll, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and more! It's truly a game changing solution that puts you miles ahead of your competition.


The Benefits of Google Tag Manager

While the ability to quickly implement tag snippets without having to wait for deployments may be enough for most marketers, the benefits of Google Tag Manager extend far beyond. With Google Tag Manager, you're able to:

  • Customize your implementation to run specific tags for specific pages or actions users take
  • Test and debug tags before publishing to your live website
  • Create tags for third (non Google) party vendors and tools
  • Implement your Google Analytics and Google Search Console tracking

Web developers and IT teams will also love Google Tag Manager, because it allows for user permissions, testing and debugging, and error checking, ensuring that all implementations are correct and giving your web development / IT teams piece of mind.
