Installing the Sendinblue Tracker enables you to track, through Sendinblue, all of the pages on your website visited by your contacts. Once identified, contacts will be automatically added on Sendinblue and can be entered in your Marketing Automation workflows.
Google Tag Manager allows you to add tags and code snippets to your website without having to manually edit your site's code.
Before we start
- Make sure you've read our Introduction to Marketing Automation.
- There are 3 ways to install the Tracker on your website, we strongly recommend using the plugins, but the second recommended way is Google Tag Manager. You can find the other ways in our dedicated article What is Sendinblue Tracker and how can I install it?
- You only have to install the Tracker script once. If you have already installed it for Chat, you don't need to install it a second time. The script is the same for both Automation and Chat.
Integrate the Sendinblue script to Google Tag Manager
- Log in to your Google Tag Manager account and select the desired content
- Create a new tag, which you can name "Main Script – Sendinblue" for example
- Select the custom HTML tag
- In Sendinblue, copy the script that you find in Marketing Automation settings > Google Tag Manager > D. Copy the script
- Back in Google Tag Manager, paste the script in the space indicated.
- Select the All pages trigger to install this script on all of your website's pages
- Save this new tag and then publish the container
Identify your users
To target your communication, you first need the elements that allow you to do this. In short, you need to know your contacts. The first step vital to any further action is to identify them. Identifying your users means retrieving their email address, and other personal details.
