Google Tag Manager (GTM)
InvisiblePPC is now utilizing Tag Manager (GTM) to apply our codes to your client's websites. GTM lets you launch new tags any time with a few clicks, so you never miss a measurement or marketing opportunity. This will simplify the work for you and your client. After the GTM code is created and implemented on your client's website InvisiblePPC will be able to implement, update, replace and troubleshoot all call tracking, remarketing and conversion tracking codes without any additional work on your part. You will be able to manage all your client's GTM account from the same login you use for your MCC.
To make this happen, there are four items you are responsible for:
- Creating a GTM account for your client
- Getting the client to implement the Tag Manager code
- Providing InvisiblePPC to the client's GTM account
- Notifying InvisiblePPC when the GTM code has been implemented on the client's website
Please review this document completely. We recommend creating the GTM account and providing the codes even before filling out the Client Onboarding Form. This will give the client extra time to get the code implemented. The GTM code must be implemented on the client's website in order to be provided a link to schedule your Onboarding Call.
