We’ve updated our Button Click Tracking Tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r87A-Ql2czg

Google Tag Manager has the great strength of making Click Tracking easy. In this video, I’ll take you through the steps of installing a Click Trigger which you can use to fire a Google Analytics Event Tag or any other tags you might want to deploy (Facebook, AdWords).

The steps:
1. Deploy a generic Click Trigger (in Preview mode)
2. See what data is available in DataLayer
3. Redefine your Trigger
4. Build Event Tag

      Can the tag be configured without defining the trigger separately? as described below (especially when a website has only one contact form submit)
      While tag configuration step 3 Fire on "click text" equals "Add To Cart" (matching the exact text of button)

      For an ecomm website, typically many pages will have add to cart button hence makes sense to define trigger separately and link to a tag…is there any other advantage of defining a trigger separately?
