I’ve been tamed!

Hello, world! I’m a marketing beast – well, a tamed one. I’m happy to say that I’ve seen the light. My mission? Inspiring others to use actionable, real-time data to fuel their marketing efforts. Digital marketers love me because I help their teams become agile, navigate around industry fluff, and save them time and money. My mom says I win CMOs over because I’m the warm and fuzzy thing that’s missing in their lives…whatever that means.

This wasn’t always the case.  I used to be frustrated, unproductive, and trapped in a silo. I shudder at the memories of onboarding a new vendor for a retargeting campaign. A new vendor meant a new tag update, and all of a sudden the JavaScript code became a hot potato that nobody wanted to touch. The web development team would have a queue with other updates taking priority over marketing’s needs, or they were just magically unavailable. Going through the organization’s dev cycle was like being forced to suffer through Dante’s 9 circles of hell, and my boss sure made me feel the heat when a campaign couldn’t be turned on. But, I broke through when I started using Tealium, because it allows me to manage those updates on my own. Now my data stream is a flowing river that helps navigate all the resources of the land.

They say the best way to predict the future is to create it. I say the best way to create the future is through data. Fasten your seatbelts, everyone: data is driving me now. And because of it, I create anticipatory customer experiences, and help our teams (and tools!) speak the same language. Welcome to the journey!

The advantages of a tag manager for your digital marketing stack are HUGE!  But don’t take my word for it.  Tame your own marketing beast and download Tealium’s report, 10 Key Benefits of Tag Management.
