The question today: What’s Tag Management? Originally, I planned to start off researching a question about performance marketing. Except our Santa Barbara office is buzzing about tag management.

Everyday, Impact Radius tracks billions of bits of data for our customers and we’ve created hundreds of reports to help make sense of it all. Some users are interested in knowing the latest performance trends. Others want to see detailed results. We understand the different roles users play when interacting with our system so we try to match the most appropriate reports for each unique role. And now we’re going a few steps further. With our latest release, the Impact Radius reporting module allows users to better customize the reporting function to their specific needs.
When should you shop for “affiliate” or “performance marketing” technology? Three scenarios suggest a review of the latest options:
1. You don’t currently have technology in place and you need it.
2. You have technology but it no longer fits your needs and you’re ready to upgrade.
3. You already have it; it doesn’t do what you need and you’re ready to shut the channel down.
