Here is an example of how to use Google Tag Manager as part of your Digital Marketing strategy

David is a personal fitness trainer who would like to expand his business. On his website, he has created a “Contact me” form so people can reach him. 
In his Google Tag Manager container, David set up the form as an event. Every time someone completes a form, it counts as a website conversion. 

David set up a Facebook campaign in order to reach new clients. He placed the Facebook site pixel in his Google tag manager container and set up the form completion as a goal/objective for his campaign. When David sets up his new FB campaign, he asks Facebook to optimize his media spend to have as many contact forms filled out as possible. Facebook will now serve ads to users who are more likely to fill out the contact form (and become paid customers). 

Therefore,  David will get more new customers without needing to increase his Media budget.
