Integrating Google Analytics and Tag Manager with Your EZRentOut Webstore

Integrating Google Analytics and Tag Manager with Your EZRentOut Webstore

Setting up an online store is difficult but you’re wasting your developmental hours if you aren’t tracking how customers interact with your store. Are customers able to find everything they need, are they leaving the page without renting items out, is the payment processing user-friendly – all these are important questions about your store and directly impact your online revenue.

Luckily, you can answer these questions and others by integrating Google Analytics with your EZRentOut Webstore. This integration enables you to study and understand customer behavior so you can continually enhance online renting for them.

To top it off, modifying website code is tricky since it requires developers on hand and becomes a whole long process. To solve the problem of deploying marketing tags without modifying the code on your Webstore, you have the Google Tag Manager integration available on EZRentOut. The Tag Manager greatly simplifies things for marketers because they can quickly add and make changes to tags on their own.
