27 Mar How to Grant Someone Access to your Google AdWords Account
If you run a business with any sort of online presence, we’d
recommend using Google AdWords and having a skilled pay per click firm
(preferably us, of course!) handle the management of it, so as to get the best
possible results for your investment.
Getting started with with Google’s PPC platform is as simple as going to AdWords and entering your email address. Setting up your account so that
someone else can manage it for you, however, isn’t quite so straight forward. Which
brings to the subject matter of this post: showing you how to grant someone
access to your AdWords account.
Step 1: Sign in to AdWords and click on the gears icon in
the top right of the screen. From the dropdown list, select the option for Account
Step 2: From the next screen click on Account access from
the left sidebar, followed by the red + USERS button.
Step 3: In the “Invite others to access this account” box, enter the email address and name (optional) of the person you wish to invite to
join your AdWords account.
You will then be required to choose from one of four Access level
settings in the dropdown menu. These options are as follows:
- Administrative access – permission to access all areas of
- Standard access – permission to make changes to the account
and give additional users email only access
- Read-only access – permission to view campaigns and read
- Email only access – permission to receive account updates
When you’ve completed the necessary fields, click on Send
invitation. The user will then appear in the Pending invitations box.
receiving the invitation, new users are required to complete several questions
about the account set-up. Their successful completion of these questions will allow
you to select Grant access from below Actions in Pending invitations.
Click on OK to confirm access and you’re good to go. You now
have all the help you need to manage your AdWords account successfully.
