A universal tag manager is placed on the Stryker.com landing pages to track when a visitor lands on the page. This allows us to attribute when you’ve viewed a Stryker online ad and either clicked on the ad to visit our website or viewed an ad, and then, decided to visit the website directly or completed a search online to find us. There is a Facebook pixel that lives within the Sizmek universal tag manager. The pixel is a line of code used as an analytics tool that allows us to measure the effectiveness of our social posts to ensure that we’re delivering them to the right people and to understand the actions visitors exhibit on the website. This pixel allows Stryker to build advertising audiences to customise who we reach further via social posts. Sizmeks’ partners’ pixels are placed within the Sizmek universal tag manager, so they can better target the right audiences who are interested in Stryker products.
