What is Google Tag Manager?

Google Tag Manager allows you to manage your website’s tags. Your tags are snippets of code that help track user behaviour on your website or mobile app. You can use Tag Manager to track your advertising ROI, gain a better overview of your website’s analytics and gather information about your users.

Unfortunately, there is no way to request access to your clients’ Google Tag Manager account within Tag Manager itself. 

But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. 

With Leadsie, you can send a personalised Leadsie request link to your client. The client clicks on the link, logs in to their Google account and grants you the access you’re requesting. 

Leadsie does the work in the back end and adds you as a manager to the account. 

You can even request access to Google Ads, Analytics, Tag Manager and Google Business Profile (formerly My Business) all with the same link. 

If you manage multiple assets for your clients, you can easily request access to their Facebook pages, Facebook Ad accounts and Instagram via Leadsie.
