However, with Tag Management Systems (TMS) on the rise, such an issue can be a thing of the past! In a nutshell, a TMS consolidates all of your marketing and analytics tags into a single container tag so that edits, updates, and upkeep can be managed within one interface. Making the decision to invest in a TMS can benefit your business in several ways:
Tag Management Systems are compatible with nearly any and all applications – search marketing solutions, social media platforms, ad servers, web analytics tools–you name it. New implementations and updates can be made at the will of your marketing team (or anyone you deem an administrator, for that matter), within the tag manager platform without involving your technical team nor having to hold out for the next code deployment. Marketing and data analysts are now empowered by taking tagging initiatives into their own hands. This shift in capabilities and the time savings it delivers translates to endless site and/or campaign optimization opportunities.
Decreasing the necessary involvement of your IT resources from continuous tracking and coding needs will inevitably result in decreased operational expenses. In streamlining your tag management, not only can you experience a reduction in cost, but time and efforts can be more efficiently directed to website optimization and effectively increasing ROI.
While the benefits are apparent, it is imperative to do your research prior to making the commitment to a tag management solution. Ultimately, a TMS implementation is intended to create a direct line to attaining your online objectives and offer a simplified solution to better achieve overall business goals.
