Turning on Google Tag Manager

Vin65 has built the foundation to create the tags and triggers that pull data from your ecommerce website through Google Tag Manager into Google Analytics. 

Enhanced Ecommerce Tracking via Google Tag Manager is an add-on feature to Vin65 available for a one-time fee of $499. To add this integration to your package, request access below and our team will turn on the feature for you; you will need to invite enhancedecommerce@vin65.com as an Admin User to both your Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager accounts in order to begin seeing the enhanced data. Without this integration, you can still use Google Tag Manager but you will not receive Enhanced Ecommerce data from your website.

Overview

The Overview section under Ecommerce gives you a snapshot view of your data. You can determine your revenue, conversion rate, transactions, and product performance in the dashboard. 

 

Shopping Behavior

The Shopping Behavior report gives insight into people that are viewing a product listing page and not adding anything to their cart, or adding an item and abandoning the cart. This gives you a funnel overview to determine your conversion rate for your overall site. 

Checkout Behavior 

The Checkout Behavior report focuses on when a customer has added something to their cart and has moved to the checkout experience. You can determine where in your checkout flow your customers are dropping off and test how different changes to your pricing or shipping impacts your customers' likelihood to complete their purchase. 

Product Performance

Through the Product Performance report you can determine how many people are drilling down to your products and adding them to their cart, and how many people are drilling down to the product and actually buying it.

Sales Performance  

The Sales Performance section offers information similar to what Vin65's own reporting offers, but with this in Google Analytics you can also make custom reports on how this relates to consumer behavior on your website. 

Product List Performance 

Through the Product List Performance report you can see results for the different lists on your site and how many times they’re being viewed, and how many times those products are being added to the cart.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. With some clever testing and marketing strategies you can leverage the data that flows from Enhanced Ecommerce into Google Analytics to improve your website conversions and sell more wine.
