This week I starting working with a new Google Ads client and I discovered a big issue with the client’s dynamic remarketing campaign. The previous ad agency had been using a WordPress plugin to pass dynamic remarketing data to Google Ads and the plugin had either stopped working or was removed from the website because the dynamic remarketing campaign hadn’t been working for over a year.

What this means is that visitors to the website were no longer receiving display campaigns showing the products they had previously looked at – instead they were receiving random images from the website. Oops!

For a dynamic remarketing campaign to work, you need to share with Google Ads exactly which products were being looked at. Ideally, you’d want to pass the data through to Google Analytics so that you have the ability to check the data is coming through as expected.

For a retail implementation we need to set up the following three pieces of data:

  • ecommerce product ID (ecomm_prodid)
  • ecommerce page type (ecomm_pagetype)
  • ecommerce total value (ecomm_totalvalue)

In this video I’ve shown you how to set this all up through Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics using a plugin for Woocommerce called Google Tag Manager for WordPress.



Having your dynamic remarketing set up correctly will make a big difference to your conversion rate and so I strongly recommend you to look into this for your own business and fix it if you don’t have it working correctly. Like I said in the video, it is a bit technical to set up, so if this isn’t your cup of tea then please reach out and see if there is any way that I can help you.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.

Petra was instrumental in pulling all our clinic's web analytics into one easy to read, dynamic report that's accessible to me at any time, and works with our EXACT booking system.

This has allowed me to see, at a glance, what marketing initiatives are working, need tweaking, or changing altogether, saving me both time and money. I can't recommend her or her analytic services enough.
