  • 3. Tag management Tag management is designed to improve web efficiency, a key factor in driving conversion and page views.
  • 4. Marketers & developers are under strain Increasingly the marketer’s job depends on running, managing and updating new tags. This puts extra strain on the developer. Any delays in updates cost market position.
  • 5. Marketers & developers are under strain Increasingly the marketer’s job depends on running, managing and updating new tags. This puts extra strain on the developer. Any delays in updates cost market position. 5 79% of tags take more than a day to implement while 29% take more than 11 days! This takes up invaluable time developers could be using for more important projects - and leaves marketing at the hands of development cycles.

Any delays in updates cost market position. 6 79% of tags take more than a day to implement while 29% take more than 11 days! This takes up invaluable time developers could be using for more important projects - and leaves marketing at the hands of development cycles. Sites slowed by multiple tags cost businesses customers. Every second your site slows by, the higher the risk becomes of your visitor simply clicking off and searching elsewhere.

Any delays in updates cost market position. 7 79% of tags take more than a day to implement while 29% take more than 11 days! This takes up invaluable time developers could be using for more important projects - and leaves marketing at the hands of development cycles. Sites slowed by multiple tags cost businesses customers. Every second your site slows by, the higher the risk becomes of your visitor simply clicking off and searching elsewhere. Overpaying marketing channels can be costly Businesses are overpaying some marketing channels with limited visibility on who is driving the real value.
  • 8. Benefits of tag management Tag management seeks to resolve a number of challenges marketers currently face Data is based on an Enterprise eCommerce business with an average number of 3rd party tags Implementing new solutions quickly; decouple tagging from core development cycles driving greater agility Result: 73% of businesses speed up internal processes Increase site speed; consolidate all 3rd party technologies into a unified system with rapid asynchronous loading Result: 10-20% improvement in page speed Save on labour costs; changing tags through a TMS can reduce time to deploy and significantly lower labour costs Result: 1/2-1 FTE saved to focus on other high value activities Reduce marketing costs; only pay once for each sale you make by de-duplicating paid channels and understanding the real value of a visitor to your website. Result: 20-30% savings in some paid marketing channels 8
  • 9. Basic tag management components 9 Containers How we group tags and scripts into a single JavaScript code. It is the container that groups and stores all of your scripts/tags. Scripts Sections of JavaScript that each contain a tag. Filters The logic that decides whether a tag should be served on a page or not. The logic is based on the URL of the page the container tag is implemented on. Page variables How you define user, page, and product information for every page of your website.
  • 10. Key Opentag features
  • 11. Opentag Dashboard 11
  • 12. Reporting interface 12
  • 13. Account Settings - User Management 13 User Management Opentag allows you to have several users for one account. You can also set roles for each user to either limit or grant them access to edit and view your containers. The roles are Administrator, Editor, and Viewer.
  • 14. Container Tag Container Tag makes technologies easy to manage
  • 15. Setting up and deploying a tag container Container Tag An average large enterprise site has 30 tags running at any one time. Container Tag lets you consolidate your tags into a single container. Within each container, you are then able to set rules around which tags fire on specific pages. This dramatically speeds up page load times as the site only loads the container, rather than lots of individual tags.
  • 16. Adding a script from our tag library 16 Tag Library Qubit’s Tag Library has over 200 pre- canned scripts ready to fire into your website. You can also add your own custom scripts.
  • 17. Migrating custom scripts into a container 17 Adding custom scripts Opentag is completely flexible and any custom tag can be added so long as it can be written in JavaScript. There are two methods of loading tags: URL-based and HTML-only. You can choose to run additional JavaScript before or after the .js URL loads. URL HTML
  • 18. ‘Advanced Features’ - Post/Pre Script 18 Pre/Post In a URL based tag, Opentag loads a script from a remote JavaScript file. Pre and post script are, quite simply, the JavaScript code to run before (i.e. pre) and after (i.e. post) the remote file loads. You will not need to wrap the pre/post script in <script> tags.
  • 19. Opentag allows you to choose the order in which scripts are run. This is useful for several reasons: 1. If you have a script that needs another script to work (eg. you have a script which uses jQuery). 2. If you have several scripts that require a common setup (eg. you have two scripts that require a common variable to be set on the page) 3. If you require scripts to be run in a precise order (eg. one script sets up a cookie that another script needs in order to run. Custom trigger rules 19 Script Dependencies

  • 21. CPA de-duplication CPA De-Duplication helps you reduce referrer spend
  • 22. Setting up CPA de-duplication 22 CPA de-duplication Opentag has inbuilt logic that recognises when more than one CPA channel has been used and allocates the commission accordingly. You can also create your own logic to decide when a conversion tag should fire. In ‘Advanced Features’, check the ‘Dedupe’ option and then choose either a ‘URL based’ filter or ‘Session Variable’ filter. See our Help Centre for more information on CPA de-duplication & Intelligent Tags.
  • 23. Filters: Session Variables 23 Session Variable Filter Intelligent Tags & Filters allow you to run a script in your container based on the user’s behaviour during their current or previous visit to your site. Session Variable filters allow you to not depend on current page URL but on other options, such as previous pages and actions a user may have taken during their journey on a given site. This can work with CPA de-duplication through the use of a ‘session refferer’ variable and other inbuilt logic options.
  • 24. Filters: URL-based 24 URL-based Filter Users can add, remove and change the priority of filters. Opentag will go through the list of filters to make a decision on whether it should run or not based on the outcome of the last filter. There are two filter types to choose from: Include or Exclude. For a working example of URL-based filters: see our Help Centre.
  • 25. Universal Variable Universal Variable helps all your technologies speak the same language
  • 26. Universal Variable 26 Pre-configured UV Universal Variable (UV) is a JavaScript (JSON) object containing details of a web page being viewed, and how the user sees it. For example, the a UV might contain details of the product being viewed (id, price etc), the user details (username, if they are new/ returning), or the products that have just been purchased on an ecommerce site. Once the UV is created on the page, data can be easily retrieved by Opentag. For example, an ecommerce tag within Opentag might require the transaction order id. This can be easily retrieved from the UV.
  • 27. Passing parameters from page to script 2724 Many JavaScript tags require you to pass values to them from the page the user is interacting with. Opentag provides multiple ways for you to collect this data. Opentag allows you to declare a new variable in several forms: i.e. Hard coded value, JavaScript, Cookie Value, etc. For an in-depth explanation on how to set up your custom variables and which variable type to use when, please refer to our Help Centre.
