How to add owners and managers to a listing in Google My Business


Hi, guys. My name’s Yeshmin, and today I’m just going to talk you through how to add an owner or a manager to a listing on Google My Business. Adding an owner or a manager to your account is a really good way to share management of a listing but without having to share any of your personal account information. So without further adieu, let’s get into it.

Firstly, you want to sign into your Google My Business page. So you go to From here, you’ll be presented with your home page. As you can see, in the bottom left corner, you have users. You want to click there. You are then presented with the manage permissions page. Over here in the top right-hand corner, you want to click invite new users. After clicking on invite new users, you want to add a new user. Over here, we’ll enter the name or email address of the user we want to add. So I’m going to enter an email in now. We then want to select the user’s role by choosing owner, manager, or communications manager. Generally, we’ll click manager. Just keep in mind that as the owner, you can add or remove users at any time. So, basically, you’re still in full control.

After selecting the user’s role, we want to click invite. Invitees will have the option to accept the invitation and immediately become listing owners or managers. After clicking invite, you’re brought back to this window which displays all active owners and managers. Google makes it very easy to manage. You notice when I click done in the right-hand corner, and that’s how you add an owner or a manager to Google My Business.
