How to Add a Manager to Your Google My Business Page
When you start working with a digital marketing agency, they will ask you for access to your Google My Business page.
Giving access to your Google My Business page will allow your agency to check the status of your page, verify that all the information is correct, and make recommendations on how to improve it.
There are two ways to give access:
- Provide the agency with your Gmail login credentials
- Add the agency as a manager of your page
In this step-by-step guide, we’ll teach you the second way: how to add an agency as a manager of your page. If you don’t mind sharing your Gmail login credentials, your agency can complete the following steps for you, but that’s for you to decide!
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Sign in to Google My Business
Visit Google My Business and log in to your account. Make sure you log in with an email that is verified as an owner of the page, enabling you to share access with your agency and add managers.
Step 2: Click “Users”
Once you’ve logged in, you should see the dashboard below. If you have multiple business locations, you’ll need to repeat steps 2 through 5 for each location.
Click the “Users” button. You’ll find this toward the bottom of the menu on the left-hand side of the dashboard. A pop-up will appear that displays your current users. This pop-up also gives you the ability to add new users, or managers.
Step 3: Click the “Invite New Managers” Icon
In the top right corner of the pop-up, you’ll see an icon that looks like a plus sign next to a person. Click this icon.
Step 4: Add New Users
Add your agency as a new manager by entering their email address into the field. Or, some agencies will provide you with a 10-digit number to enter into this field. Once you enter the email address or the 10-digit number, a pop-up will appear with the agency’s name. Click the name to add the new user in the “Invite” field.
Step 5: Select a Role and Send Invitation
Once you’ve added the user, you must select their role. Select either “Owner” or “Manager.” Once you select a role, the “Invite” button will become clickable.
Click “Invite” to send your agency a request to manage your Google My Business page. Once your agency receives the invite, they can accept access and begin to optimize your Google My Business page for SEO value and any Google Ads campaigns you may be running.
You’ve officially granted your agency access to your Google My Business page! You can add as many managers as you like and remove them at any time. Contact Blue Laser Digital if you have any questions or need help following these steps.
