Just five months after the success of Tealium’s inaugural user conference in San Diego, last week’s Digital Velocity Europe, our first user conference this side of the Atlantic, was overflowing with digital marketers and data-driven professionals from 10 European countries. Our unique one-day format blended the theoretical and practical with a mix of inspirational thought leaders and client presentations in the morning, and hands-on learning courtesy of Tag Management University in the afternoon. The event was held in central London.

When it comes to making important buying decisions, people often rely on the recommendations of their trusted network. With the rise of social media, access to this type of information has become incredibly amplified. Not only can we see what our friends and family are buying through different social outlets and review platforms, but we can also lean on the experience of liked-minded strangers – the so-called “wisdom of the crowds.”

Today I am extremely excited to announce the launch of the Tealium Learning Community.
Available to Tealium clients and partners, the TLC (pun intended) is the place to find the help, documentation and other educational resources users need to be successful with Tealium’s service. You can find out about new features, learn to navigate the Tealium management console, and get help with any questions you might have on how to maximize your use of Tealium iQ. Because we want Tealium to be the place where digital marketers go to be successful, we believe that a social / community approach to knowledge sharing is the best solution. The Tealium Learning Community is that solution.

Where are your web site visitors going? If you’re an e-commerce marketer, answering that question and increasing conversions are always top priorities. There are plenty of different variables that affect customer conversions, but below are three common reasons why your visitors could be fleeing your site:
- They don’t want to wait. Akamai revealed that 47 percent of consumers expect an e-commerce page to load in 2 seconds or less – which means your site better be up to par, or off to a competitor’s site they go.
- Your marketing campaigns aren’t effective.
- You need a better measurement strategy.
Tag Management Systems (TMS) have been increasingly adopted by e-commerce marketers to maximize their online effectiveness and improve the performance of their website. As digital marketers increase the number of marketing vendors they use, deploying and managing tags becomes a challenge, often resulting in page bloat and ultimately hinders page performance. TMS enhances site performance and efficiency, gives marketers better control of their online vendors and digital data, and allows them to manage their digital marketing tools easier than ever.
As e-commerce technology continues to evolve, digital marketers are increasingly turning to tag management for a seamless way to manage their third-party vendors, and maximize online marketing effectiveness.
Managing vendor tags has become one of the biggest challenges in digital marketing today because it is so costly and time-consuming. Marketers are often at the mercy of IT to launch new campaigns or make changes to existing ones, ultimately hindering workflow agility and sapping valuable resources. Have you tried to launch a new vendor and were told that it wasn’t “priority” or missed deadlines because of your dev cycle? Read on.
Jim Sterne, founder of the Digital Analytics Association (DAA) and eMetrics Summit, was the keynote speaker at Digital Velocity. In his presentation, “Nimble Digital Marketing Master,” Jim shared his thoughts on why a digital marketer’s job is (almost) impossible. Jim spent a few minutes with Erik Bratt, VP of Marketing at Tealium, to define “big data” and how tag management helps solve the big data problem.
