The Tag Manager Mastery course is an on-demand, online training program that teaches marketers, advertisers, and website owners how to rapidly build their Google Tag Manager skills.
We'll start with the basics, and by the end of this training, you'll understand how to unlock a whole new world of marketing insights.
Data Driven has trained employees from 10,000+ organizations, including brands like:
These days, there are tags (or pixels or scripts or tracking codes) for everything – Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, Google Ads, LinkedIn, etc. are all asking you to add code to your website to track advertising performance.
Manually adding new tags to your site is often slow, messy and frustrating.
Getting new tracking tags added on a website usually means waiting on web development to add your code to your site, which can take days, weeks or even years to accomplish! These delays cost money and time.
There's an easier way to get the marketing data you need to add value to your organization.
Google Tag Manager is a virtually code-less solution for adding tracking tags to your website and mobile apps. This revolutionary platform gives control back to the marketing team, so you can make faster and more informed decisions.
When you know how to use GTM, you don't have to wait to install new tags. GTM keeps your website loading fast, and safe from corrupt tracking scripts.
And GTM has built-in event triggers that allow you to collect more impactful marketing data. GTM is like the ultimate set of digital marketing power tools.
Learning fundamental GTM skills can drastically increase your value as a marketing professional. These skills can also save website owners loads of money.
But the GTM interface is not always intuitive. And using GTM without proper technique can have some unfortunate outcomes... like making your analytics tracking code disappear or accidentally inflating the metrics in your analytics account.
You could try to figure out GTM by sifting through Google’s documentation, or sloshing through endless hours of demo videos. But that can take forever! And both of these approaches will leave you with more questions than answers.
Introducing Tag Manager Mastery, an online course pulled straight from the classroom to teach you Google Tag Manager from the ground up.
I've figured out a better way for you to learn GTM... By doing it Live!
Instead of trying to teach you GTM through boring definitions and demos, Tag Manager Mastery walks you through a real implementation of GTM on a live website.
The course helps you master the fundamental GTM components that save you time and money by focusing on collecting the actionable data that matters to your business.
In 16 video lessons, you’ll learn how to use GTM with competence and confidence. You’ll be able to break free of tracking code barriers. And you’ll be able to take control of tracking the data you need to be a better marketer.
Tag Manager Mastery puts you on the fast track to using Google Tag Manager effectively.
If you're not using Google Tag Manager (GTM) yet - Or you have some Tag Manager experience, but you're not entirely confident with the platform - Then this Course is for you!
Tag Manager Mastery Course is the perfect learning opportunity for the following professionals:
Tag Manager Mastery Course will help you rapidly progress from a beginner to advanced level of expertise in Google Tag Manager.
I never figured out GTM until Jeff’s training. Thanks!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the GTM calls that Jeff hosts and I'm very grateful that you these calls are included as part of the program. It’s great to be part of the community.
I personally value the fact that you were as open and transparent with your students and that you willingly tackle pretty much any question that comes at you from the community. I look forward to remaining part of the community long-term and have you answer my questions as they come up!
These bundles are a really great value - I purchased Google Data Studio, GTM, and Analytics courses :)
Hi, I’m Jeff Sauer. I have been working in web analytics since 2005, when I became one of the first people to beta test Google Analytics. I was also privileged to be one of the first 50 people to beta test Google Tag Manager.
As a marketer and web analyst, I've helped businesses of all sizes upgrade their tracking and analytics using GTM.
Ever since Google Tag Manager launched, I've been fascinated by how much easier this platform makes tagging and tracking.
I love helping students learn how to simplify their tracking and gain access to better marketing insights using GTM. The #1 question I receive from my Google Analytics Mastery and Google Ads Mastery Course students is "Jeff, can you PLEASE teach me GTM?"
Now I am proud to bring you my Tag Manager Mastery Course.
This unique course takes you on a journey to learning Google Tag Manager from the ground up. Our hands-on demonstration of GTM allows students to go from beginner to intermediate level GTM users by the end of our coaching program.
Jeff has been featured on:
It all started with a live GTM training session in Minneapolis. During that training session, I only had one day to teach my students Tag Manager, so I packed as much as I could into a day worth of training.
The result was an action-packed training that was so effective, we decided to turn into an online program that you can access 24-7!
Tag Manager Mastery shows you how to build a Google Tag Manager account in real-time. It's an unfiltered view of how to go from zero tracking to something better, showing you how to automate the tracking process for more complete results.

GTM Course includes Four MASTER CLASSES. During two of these trainings, Jeff was joined by world-renowned GTM expert Simo Ahava, who is a leading global authority on Google Tag Manager.
Simo’s GTM seminars typically cost hundreds of dollars to attend... If you can even get tickets to them. Simo does so few trainings these days that his workshops sell out faster than a Bruce Springsteen concert.
During these Master Class recordings, Simo and Jeff will teach you how to go beyond the basics of GTM, and turn your website into a tracking-machine that powers your advertising and analytics.
These Master Classes alone are worth 8X the cost of the Course.
BUT, when you join Tag Manager Mastery, you will get full access to 4+ hours of Simo and Jeff's unparalleled knowledge… at no extra cost!

Get certified now. - Jeff is a very good teacher. This course is easy to follow, and it provides everything needed to get to pass the 2 courses needed to get certified. I sent questions during the training and even after and Jeff came back each time in a timely manner. I'm confident that I will log in my account and use the videos as a reference for a while. This training worth every penny.
Worth Every Penny - I have had my share of running AdWords from 2012 to 2014, but I believe this course will get me to another level, where i can consider myself an AdWords pro!!!
Easy to Digest Format - Even though I'm just starting the course, I know it was a smart decision to invest in learning PPC. After just a few lessons, I've already found ways to tweak my first Google Adwords campaign. Jeff makes everything clear, which isn't always easy when teaching this topic. Can't wait to become a master!
Great Refresher with some hidden Gems - This course was a great refresher, had a few hidden gems that have seriously helped me re-frame some processes, as well as gave me an insight into the life of a pro-adwords user. Well recommended, regardless of how comfortable you already are with Adwords. Only the fool hardy would say 'I already know everything and couldn't possibly learn more'.
What I spend on AdWords vs what I spent on your course and the money I have *SAVED* has paid for itself 10 times over!
Great course very detailed - I really like this course. It s great format with one video a day, not too much content at once but not too few. Of course you can also binge watch it if you feel like it. The content is very detailed and goes really in depth. Can't wait to try to google adwords certification at the end of the course.
