Why You Need a Tag Management System

Most companies have split responsibilities when it comes to their corporate website or blog. The internal technology team owns the infrastructure and sometimes the code, and the marketing team owns the messaging and is responsible for the results. This often leads to conflicts or delays in the ability to deploy changes to the site to help improve it. From analytics scripts, marketing tags, and even testing and tracking snippets, managing and deploying the changes can be a cumbersome process.

Tag Management Systems (TMS) provide a means to simplify the process, providing a central repository to manage and deploy tags (not to be confused with keyword tagging). With a TMS, the technology team can insert a script tag into your site, and then the marketing team can manage and deploy whatever they need from the Tag Management System… never having to touch the website code!

You rely on JavaScript tags to let you measure results from your online marketing campaigns, reward referring channels, and plan future campaigns accordingly. However, without a system for keeping track of the inventory of tags on your site, you can find your web pages littered with dozens of duplicate, outdated and non-functioning tags. This proliferation of tags can be difficult and expensive to manage, and can produce misleading data. TagMan
