Once you have completed these steps it’s time to ensure that WebSights is firing on your site to capture the information that will help improve your retargeting strategies. For this you will need a Google Tag Manager container. Even if you’re not very familiar with GTM, these steps will help guide you through the ZoomInfo tag creation process. 

1. Open your Google Tag Manager container and select Tags from the left menu. 

2. Click New to create a new tag and name it something like “ZoomInfo HTML Tag” or “ZoomInfo WebSights Tag.”
