How to use Google Tag Manager to show your clients results

Posted by

Are you tired of asking your web developer to add code, snippets, pixels or scripts to your site so you can track remarketing, conversions, analytics and more? Google Tag Manager (GTM) allows you to add or update tags without having to bother your developer.

Google Tag Manager gives you control over how your tags are defined and how they fire.
