A training that's up-to-date, engaging, highly practical, with support

This sounds like a very low bar for an online training, right? But apparently, many Google Tag Manager trainings in the market struggle with that.

If you found a course bundle or an extensive training program (that looks like a good deal), check when was the last time they updated their GTM course(s). You might be surprised 🙂

Things are different at Analytics Mania. This training is:

  • Regularly updated
  • Filled with practical lessons + you will apply them on a sandbox website
  • With easy-to-understand explanations of complex concepts
  • With a clear step-by-step process (not just filled with random tutorials)
  • With time-saving resources (exclusive templates and checklists)
  • With support from the instructor and other students
  • With lifetime access (no deadlines and expiration dates)
  • Taught by one of the top GTM practitioners in the world

For those who are tired of waiting for developers to install tracking codes

If you want to measure the effectiveness of your website with analytics/marketing tools, you have to install them.  But how?

You can ask a developer to do that. But he/she is too busy and will do that only after a week (or even later). Now, you’re forced to wait, thus lose valuable insights and money.

Manual management of tracking codes/pixels via the website’s code is a very slow, annoying, and ineffective process. But you can change with Google Tag Manager.

For those who often get stuck/lost in the sea of GTM tutorials

Yes, there are many other resources online that will teach GTM (videos, blog posts, free/cheap courses, documentation). But that comes with its own price:

  • Most of those tutorials are outdated
  • You don’t have a clear learning path, the process is chaotic
  • It’s easy to get lost in the documentation

As a result, you get stuck very often and thus waste even more time. If you convert that wasted time into money, it will probably be even more expensive than a Premium GTM training.

Instead of trying to figure things on your own and wasting weeks, you could be up-and-running with GTM within days. And that’s possible with this training.

Make your marketing 10x more effective and faster with GTM Masterclass 3.0

Eliminate the guesswork.

Frequently asked questions

This Google Tag Manager training for Beginners starts when you enroll in it and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online training – you decide when you start and when you finish.

I recommend taking the training over two to four weeks, so you have time to apply the lessons to your own or clients’ accounts. That being said, I’ve seen people complete the training in less than a week and others that spread the lessons over a couple of months. The main video content of the training is 9 hours long.

In many cases, employers pay for the training. Here are some thoughts:

  • Your marketing/analytics team will be dramatically less dependent on the IT department
  • You’ll be able to install and manage tracking codes with ease
  • Your team will become agiler as they will be able to launch new tracking campaigns much faster

Sounds like a good deal, right?

No worries, this is a quite common situation. Answer these questions in your head:

  • Do you know how the data layer works, how to put data in it, and how to get data from it?
  • Do you know what an auto-event listener is, what it does and how to enable it? There are two ways and you must know both. And no, “Enable built-in variables” is not one of the answers.
  • Do you know how to configure your tags to respects user’s privacy preferences?

If you are not sure about at least ONE of the above questions, you should take this training. My intermediate/advanced GTM training will be too difficult for you right now.

If you know the answers to ALL of these questions, it sounds like you are already an intermediate user and you will benefit more from my intermediate/advanced GTM Course.

Yes, you will receive a certificate after you have gone through all training material and completed the final challenge.

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this training for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

Yes. And if the update is published, all existing training students get it for free.

It is recommended for you to know the very basics of Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. Or at least Google Analytics. However, I will give you brief introductions in my training as well.

Speaking of technical requirements, you should have a Google Chrome browser installed (because there are several plugins you’ll need to use during the training) and an internet connection, of training.

I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.

No. This training provides a sandbox website where you will learn how to track particular interactions. If you have your own website, that’s also good. You can practice there.

No, the price you see on this page is without the Value Added Tax (VAT), therefore, the final price might increase on the checkout page.
