Are you working overnight just to manually fix your incorrect tags? Looking for more time to get actionable insights from consumer data over sitting and finding incorrect deployment of tags and pixels? Read this post to know how a tag audit tool can save you time and resources for data governance. Understand the importance of automated insights that you can derive from data to improve your ROI on marketing decisions.
A Tag is a small piece of code that is triggered on each of the pages of your website through which you want to capture and eventually analyze consumer behavior. Incorrect deployment of tags can lead to inaccurate data collection and eventually lead to poor marketing decisions.
The biggest nightmare for an analyst would be to present actionable insights from inaccurate data and degrade site performance. Often, you can NOT trust your data and spend double the time cleaning it up.
So, how does a website tag audit tool become your messiah and save you from all the manual work of cleaning and fixing incorrect data?
A website tag audit tool, like Falcon, scans and crawls every page of your website to give you reports for key metrics of tags and website performance.
Our scan will get deep insight into the pages that are missing Analytical tools, Marketing Pixels, Tag management and identify the pages causing Duplicate page view and redundant Tags, to improve page performance. We also help you get performance breakdown on DNS, Server connection and TTFB level and estimated load times across the pages.
Say, you’re a data analyst/marketing analyst who’s responsible for making data-driven marketing decisions to improve website performance. How would you go about it?
You will manually figure out the tags that have been incorrectly deployed, the pages that have Google Analytics + Google Tag Manager disabled on them. You need to do this as this is the cause of inaccurate data collection. Tedious.
After sitting for long hours and going through each page, you will list down pages with very high load time and server errors.
Then after you have these huge unorganized lists, you will put the outcome into the “data analysis” mode and spend hours to make a summary of all the issues to present to your top management. You will need to use all your grey matter to then prioritize the issues to be solved and present what you’ve been successful at doing, till now.
After this, you will see the actions that need to be taken to fix these issues and improve your site performance.
Now, this is exhaustive and time-consuming. You might be tired just even after reading this.
Do you know what would I do, if I were in your place? I would make life easy and just use Falcon. I will tell you why.
