Introduction video
Google Tag Manager is an essential skill of any technical digital marketer or analyst

Google Tag Manager probably isn’t something that keeps you up at night, wondering where you’re falling short skillwise. But if you’re in digital marketing, maybe it should be.
Google Tag Manager is a control center for your online data

What is a tag manager, anyway?

It’s like a control center for your data. If you’re operating without a control center, you’re not getting all the value out of your data measurement and analysis.

Maybe you’ve even installed Google Tag Manager and started to play around with it, but you realized it wasn’t as intuitive as you first thought. This is common. Thing is, while some of the basics are easy to get down (setting up tags, for instance), the power of Google Tag Manager goes far beyond these things. But even with some preliminary skills, you can do some awesome things with GTM.

Have now created over ten containers for clients and seeing real results when it comes to event tracking and adding conversion pixels.

Google Tag Manager opens up new worlds for you with analytics and optimization

Wouldn’t it be nice to simplify cross-domain tracking so your data is actually useful? To set up custom events and variables to track on page activity with greater granularity? To allow your marketing team to deploy tags without calling over a developer to help out?

Google Tag Manager solves so many of the most common problem marketers have with analytics.

Playing around by yourself can be valuable, but it’s so much more efficient to watch over an expert’s shoulder as they show you the ins and outs, the most important and powerful use cases, of Google Tag Manager.

“I’d go so far as to say that a [Tag Management System] is practically a prerequisite to managing analytics efficiently, and ultimately to deriving serious value from analytics at all.”
Nick Iyengar in MarTechToday, 2016

Tag management is relatively new in the grand scheme of the digital marketing world. It’s only going to become more and more important to know and master in the years to come, especially if you’re in digital marketing.

Take the time and invest in yourself; your future in marketing may depend on it.
Justin Rondeau, Director of Optimization @ Digital Marketer

Just when I think I’ve gotten good at Tag Manager, I talk with Mercer and realize there is more power in that tool than I could even imagine. The man is constantly pushing the tool to its limit and has a better handle on the application than anyone I know.
This course is right for you if…

You’re a digital marketer who wants to increase the value you provide to the company (and get paid more).
You’re an analyst who wants to derive more value from their data and open up your analytics insights to your organization, even those without technical skills.
You want to accomplish things like cross-domain tracking, custom tracking, enhanced ecommerce tracking, and tag deployment – with ease.
