Tag Management Implementation
Tag Management is something that every marketer has to consider in today’s fast pace business environment. On average, an enterprise website might contain up to 50 different marketing and analytics tags used to collect various marketing data. Managing all of these tags can present a number of challenges. Tags slow down the website, IT departments often cause delays in tag implementation, there are privacy issues to consider, and numerous errors and problems arise from incomplete or improper tag implementation.
InfoTrust is an approved Google Tag Manager Specialist. We created a tool that finds tags in your website’s code and generates a report of all tag locations for you. Tag Inspector will save time automatically pulling tag locations for you and sending you a report.
Tag management systems were developed to address these challenges. In fact, according to Econsultancy report on Tag Management, the majority of companies considering a move from manual site tagging to tag management believe it will increase their marketing agility and speed of marketing activities (both at 86%). More than 8 in 10 respondents who have implemented a solution agree (81% and 84%, respectively) on these benefits.
However, implementation of a Tag Management Solution is often a big undertaking that requires a structured process to ensure that needs of all stakeholders are met and that there are no disruptions in collecting accurate data. In fact, the key challenges in adopting a Tag Management System is the limited understanding of this technology.
