In the online world, we leave behind data both as users and recipients. Data is a byproduct of our surfing the web. It is left by each of us. As business owners of online stores, service companies, content publishers, we want to use this data to better understand users’ and consumers’ behavior. We want to improve the usability of the website, increase the conversion rate, lower the bounce rate or increase the time spent on the site. As an SEM performance management company, we want to increase the effectiveness of campaigns, increase ROAS, decrease CPA, increase the conversion of phone calls, inquiries sent and orders placed. How to do it? So far, you have been using only Google Analytics and it is through this tool that you have been drawing all the conclusions and making key decisions in the company? We must warn you – this approach is insufficient. We want to introduce you to a revolutionary service that combines advanced marketing tools whose effectiveness is confirmed by the world’s biggest brands. This tool is Google Marketing Platform.

Google Marketing Platform: What is It?

Your Services work better together. Combine them.

At the beginning of our cooperation with Delante in the Google Performance Ads service, we implement Google Marketing Platform for our clients. This includes Google Ads, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Data Studio and Google Merchant Center. The service is an essential connection leading to achieving even better results. Our goal is to spread the tool so that access to the latest solutions to improve campaign effectiveness is available to all companies, especially those in the small and medium-sized business sector.

GMP Implementation: 8 Reasons to Do It

1. Comprehensive implementation of Google Tag Manager

If you see an opportunity – act fast. Enter scripts and updates in minutes with Google Tag Manager. We implement fast and flexible Internet marketing by using the latest Google solutions. A fully secure and fast interface that will allow both you and our agency to enter data in most cases without the need for programmers. As part of our Google Marketing Platform service, we implement Google Tag Manager comprehensively from A to Z. In many cases, having FTP access or administrative access to the CMS system, we will implement the necessary codes once at no extra charge. We conduct subsequent work within GTM with different intensity, depending on the industry and customer needs. Most often, within GTM we implement the most important scripts and tools, configure micro and macro conversions, improve the efficiency of conversion counting.

2. Comprehensive implementation of Google Analytics

If you want to make accurate decisions you need data you can trust. Google Analytics is a free analytics tool that gives you huge possibilities in terms of web analytics. To get the maximum out of this tool, we must first configure it correctly. Configuration refers to all settings at the account and service level. We integrate the Google Ads tool to get detailed data on paid traffic. After configuring and testing the account correctly, we move on to configuring goals, both at the micro and macro conversion levels. This is one of the most important elements of measurement in Google Analytics. We configure most of the goals directly on the site using the already implemented Google Tag Manager. We create Google Analytics integration, configurations and goals from A to Z, informing the client of successful completion. However, there are exceptional cases, specific CMS, where we need a programmer to help. In that case, we coordinate activities and support the entire process until the positive completion.

3. Creating Google Looker Studio

Google Data Studio makes it possible to enter a higher level of reporting. Our customers have an account and access to the platform, thanks to which browsing performance indicators is a piece of cake. On only one page of the report we present data in a clear and simple way tailored to individual preferences of customers.

4. Creating a Google Ads account

Advanced Performance Marketing tool is available for small, medium and large enterprises. Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) is the most popular PPC advertising platform. We will increase the visibility of your business. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad. You have a unique opportunity to get additional customers for your business. We reach customers in the right place and at the right time. Campaigns are not limited by a minimum budget, so you can start with any amount. Ask for an estimate, in which we will provide a minimum reasonable budget within which we can start the promotion.

5. Creating a remarketing

Use Google Ads to reach customers who have already visited your site. Together with implementing Google Marketing Platform, we also add plenty of personalized groups of recipients to your account and we continually expand these lists during the contract period. Depending on sources of visits and behaviors on the site, recipients lists help us personalize messages. Some of the recipient lists are not instantly used and we leave them for special occasions such as holidays or festivals. As part of the service, we also configure Customer Match recipients.

6. Configuring connections (Call Tracking)

Configure Call Tracking and get useful data about your company’s calls. We perform the configuration as part of our Google Marketing Platform implementation. Once the service is properly configured, you will receive detailed reports on, among other things, the time of the call, the number of calls, the country code of the caller and which campaign the call came from. The call data is treated as conversions.

7. Implementing Google Merchant Center

A high-conversion source of traffic that is perfect for an online store. An account in Google Merchant Center is implemented as part of the service. The service strives for correct processing of the product file and sending data to Google Ads to conduct a product campaign. Further Google Merchant Center functions that we configure are advanced rules for the data file and consumer reviews.

8. Site Audit

The higher the quality of the landing page, the higher the quality score. To be able to effectively achieve the company’s goals, we not only audit the website to check whether it’s useful on mobile devices but we also carry out optimization tests. After implementing Google Marketing Platform, each customer receives an application report from us.
