Introduction to GTM

Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a free tag management system provided by Google. It is a tool to manage and deploy tags and labels on websites or mobile apps.

It is designed mainly to streamline the process of managing tags on websites or mobile apps. Traditionally, you have to directly edit the website code or seek assistance from a developer if you want to add and update different tags (such as Google Analytics, Facebook pixels, AdWords conversion tags, etc). With GTM, you can manage all tags through a simple user interface without modifying the source code of your website.

In short, GTM is a convenient and powerful tool that allows you to manage and deploy tags and labels on websites or mobile apps in a centralized manner. It streamlines the tracking and analysis processes and provides better flexibility and control.

  • Ad placement and optimization: GTM's integration capabilities enable you to better manage and optimize your advertisement. You can use GTM to add and update add labels to track the effectiveness of the ads. Moreover, you can set up event triggers to implement event tracking to gain a more precise understanding of when ads are triggered and the target audience.
  • Website performance optimization: GTM can be used to manage and deploy tags and labels related to website performance optimization. Centralized management of these tags allows you to better control the website load speed, responsiveness, and customer experience.
