How To Add A Google My Business Manager

Learn how to add a Google My Business Manager.

Business owners should always own their own business listings on Google. That should be a no-brainer, right? Well, you’d be surprised the amount of businesses that don’t own or claim their Google My Business page. To learn how to claim your page, check out our blog post about it.

This is only the first step.

The next step should be adding a Google My Business Manager because it allows the user to share management of a listing without having to share personal account information. According to Google, “Owners, managers, and communications managers all have different levels of access to the listing.” Keep in mind, only an owner can add or remove users. However, a manager may remove himself or herself from a listing. Google Groups can’t be added as managers or owners of listings.

Below are the steps you need to take to add a Google My Business  Manager to your Google My Business porfile.
