Adding a manager to your Google My Business (GMB) listing allows someone else to help you manage and optimize your business's online presence without giving them full ownership or control. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to add a manager to your GMB listing:
Sign in to Google My Business:
Go to the Google My Business website: https://www.google.com/business/.
Sign in with the Google account that is associated with your GMB listing.
Locate Your Business:
If you have multiple listings, select the one you want to add a manager to.
Access the "Users" Section:
In the left-hand menu, click on "Users."
Invite a New User:
Click the blue "Invite others" button.
Enter the Manager's Email:
In the invitation box, enter the email address of the person you want to add as a manager.
Choose the Role:
You can assign different roles to the manager. There are three primary roles:
Owner: Owners have full control over the listing, including the ability to add and remove users. Be cautious when assigning this role.
Manager: Managers can make changes to the listing but cannot add or remove users. This is a suitable role for most situations.
Site manager: Site managers can only manage certain aspects of the listing, like photos or business hours. They don't have access to all the listing's features.
Send the Invitation:
After selecting the role, click the "Invite" button. An email invitation will be sent to the manager you've invited.
Manager Accepts the Invitation:
The manager you invited will receive an email invitation to manage your GMB listing. They need to accept the invitation by clicking the link in the email.
Once the manager accepts the invitation, they will have access to your GMB listing according to the role you assigned. They can help you manage various aspects of the listing, such as updating business information, responding to reviews, and adding photos.
You can always review and manage users in the "Users" section of your GMB dashboard. You can change their roles or remove them if necessary.
Remember to be cautious when assigning roles, especially the "Owner" role, as it grants full control over your GMB listing. Only assign the "Owner" role to individuals or accounts you trust completely.
By adding a manager to your GMB listing, you can delegate tasks and ensure that your business's online presence is effectively managed and optimized.
