Adding a New Manager to Google My Business

To make the most of your Google My Business profile, you may need to share the crown with another ape that you trust. If you need to add another manager to your account, here’s how to get it done:

In some cases, you may see two options appear but have the same information, like the example below. This is because Google is pulling up both the name and email address for that account, so you can select either option.

6. Select “Manager” as the role for this new user

Adding an Agency Account as a Manager on Google My Business 

Many people don’t know this, but there are specialized Google My Business accounts that are meant for agencies who are managing multiple clients with multiple profiles. If you are inviting an agency to manage your Google My Business account, you’ll need to go through a few different steps.

1. Log into your Google My Business profile

3. Click “Add Users”

4. Enter your group location ID

This is a special number that the agency should provide to you. Instead of inviting an email address, you’ll use that number to give the agency access to your profile within a specific “folder” for your business.

5. Click on your business name in the drop-down when it appears

Tip from the Gorilla: Even though you are inviting an agency to your account, you will see your business name after you enter your group location ID. This is because you’re being invited to a unique client folder created for your business. Once your name appears, click on it to proceed.
