About This Class

Correct implementation of web analytics has always been a challenge for digital marketers. A recent report from eConsultancy revealed that over 80% of online retailers use analytics incorrectly. Not having the technical expertise to understand and implement the tracking tags has been one main reason, but too much reliance on IT/web developers for implementation has also been another key limiting factor.

Google Tag Manager is fast becoming the mots popular solution for many of these limitations. GTM makes it easy for marketers to add and update website tags including analytics, remarketing, and more – with just a few clicks, and without bugging the IT staff. This 2 hour session on Google Tag Manager will take you through a step by step process of setting it up and implementing the most commonly used Google analytics tracking tags.
