Just keep moving forward is one of my biggest montras!
Today we got the rest of our set up dialed in for GTM & GA.
I am intentionally leaving some things blank/undone so we can use this as a teaching method for how to clean things up in GDS.

- Custom Dimensions For Categories + Tag Manager
I want to be able to see which categories are performing better as well as the average times for when we will be able to update content if it’s getting older.
Then we will be able to use those custom dimensions in Looker Studio to average our content types & dates to improve into the future and beyond!
Setting Up Quiz Journeys
We are going to use ConvertBox to have readers (like yourselves) give feedback on what you want to learn about!
If you are on our newsletter, you can also hit ‘reply’ to literally any email and let us know what is up in your life.
As always, I hope this was helpful!
And to future readers best of luck in your measurement journey!
