GOALS AND EVENTS
Google Analytics goals track specific actions and events are the user interactions with specific elements, such as clicks or video views. Tracking goals and events provides invaluable data to business owners that can be used to optimise media spend, benchmark performance, and more. These can be managed through the gtag.js (universal analytics) or the SDK for GA4, outbloom typically manage this process using a tag management solution such as Google Tag Manager to ensure all tagging is in one place, without the need to involve dev teams.
