Creating a Google Tag Manager Account & Container ID

If you don't have a Google Tag Manager account yet, you will need to sign up for an account and create a Container ID, then connect it to your Sitebeat website with the instructions under Step 2 above.

To sign up for a Google Tag Manager account and create a Container ID, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Google Tag Manager webpage.
  2. Click Sign In at the top right-hand corner of the page and select Tag Manager.
    Or, you can simply click on the Sign Up For Free button beside it.

    Note: If you haven't signed in to your Google or Gmail account yet, you will be prompted to log in. Enter your account's Username and click Next, then enter your Password and click Next, to continue with the Google Tag Manager signup process.

  3. Click on the Admin tab from the top menu.

  5. Enter a Container Name in the field provided, e.g. www.myadvertisement.com

  7. Review the Google Tag Manager Terms of Agreement and click Yes.
  8. A pop-up window will appear with Codes that you can copy and paste onto every page of your website. Since you only need your Container ID to connect your Google Tag Manager account to Sitebeat, ignore this and click OK.
  9. Manually take note of the Container ID found at the top right-hand section of the page, beside Workspace Changes. The Container ID will start with GTM- followed by a random combination of letters and numbers, e.g. GTM-AB12C3D.
