Accepting a Partner Request in Google Ads: A Step-by-Step Guide
Google Ads, the world’s largest and most popular online advertising platform, offers businesses the ability to manage their ad campaigns effectively by partnering with other agencies or individuals. A partner request is an invitation from an agency to collaborate on your Google Ads account. Accepting a partner request will grant your new partner access to your account, so they can help you optimize your campaigns, create new ads, and achieve your marketing goals. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of accepting a partner request in Google Ads step by step.
Step 1: Check Your Email for a Partner Request
The first thing you need to do is locate the email containing the partner request. Google Ads will send you an email notification when someone sends you a partner request. The email will contain the name of the agency or individual who wants to partner with you and a link to accept the request. If you can not find this, you will still be able to accept the partner request by following the steps laid out below.
Step 2: Log in to Your Google Ads Account
To accept the partner request, you will need to log in to your Google Ads account. Visit the Google Ads homepage (https://ads.google.com) and sign in using your Google account credentials.
Step 3: Go to the Account Access Page
Once logged in, click on the “Tools & Settings” icon (shaped like a spanner) in the top right corner of your Google Ads dashboard. From the dropdown menu, select “Account access” under the “Setup” section.
Step 4: Locate the Partner Request
On the “Account access” page, you will find a list of all users and partners with access to your Google Ads account. Look for the partner request under the “Managers” tab. The pending invitation will be obvious at the top of the page
Step 5: Review and Accept the Partner Request
Before accepting the partner request, make sure to review the details of the agency or individual carefully. Ensure that they are a reputable and trustworthy partner, as granting them access to your account means they will have control over your advertising campaigns.
To accept the partner request, click on the “View and accept” link next to the invitation. You will be redirected to a new page where you can review the access level the partner will have. Once you’re satisfied with the access level, click on the “Accept Invitation” button.
Step 6: Set Permissions
After accepting the partner request, you’ll be prompted to set the permissions for the new partner. You can grant them access to specific campaigns, ad groups, or even restrict their access to certain features within your account. Make sure to set the permissions according to your preferences and the level of trust you have in your new partner.
Step 7: Monitor Your Account Activity
Once you’ve accepted the partner request and set the permissions, your new partner will have access to your Google Ads account. It’s important to monitor your account activity regularly and maintain open communication with your partner to ensure your advertising campaigns are being managed effectively.
Accepting a partner request in Google Ads is a straightforward process. By following these steps, you can easily collaborate with agencies or individuals to optimize your ad campaigns, improve your digital marketing efforts, and ultimately, achieve better results for your business. Remember, always work with trustworthy partners and maintain open communication to ensure a successful partnership.
