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, create a Container ID, and 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:
- Go to the Google Tag Manager webpage.
- Click Sign in to Tag Manager at the top right-hand corner of the page, and then select Create Account.
You can also simply click on the Start 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, and then enter your password and click Next, to continue with the Google Tag Manager signup process.
- In Account Setup, enter a new Account Name in the field provided, and then select your Country from the drop-down list.

- Select the applicable Target Platform, and then click Create.
