MTL+ACADEMY – GOOGLE TAG MANAGER Workshop

** This workshop willl be given by Click & Mortar **
One of the biggest advantages in marketing at the digital era is that most actions done by your potential or current customers online can be tracked. Whether we are talking about likes on Facebook, shares on LinkedIn, clicks on a link in your email campaigns or even purchases on your website, in most cases, these interactions can be tracked and connected together.
Every advanced digital marketer with a logic based on performance knows that optimizing your media placement according to such valuable interactions can help you scale your campaign quickly and efficiently and lower your average media spend. It is, without a doubt, an interesting competitive advantage to make the most out of your online marketing.
