A website visitor is a standard indicator of someone interested in your line of business with the intent of learning more. Taking that into account, the activity of visitors on your website can be tracked, and based on their onsite activity, smart onsite engagement triggers listed below can be implemented through Google Tag Manager for effective remarketing.

  • Scrolling Depth

Depending on the length of your website pages, some might scroll longer to reach the end of your website content and design. If someone is not scrolling on your landing page, then it’s not a favorable lead to chase. 

This is a good indicator for utilizing CRO to enhance your website experience.
