How to Accept a Client Manager AdWords Access Invitation

By sharing access to your existing Google AdWords account, you’ll be allowing us to view and manage your account through our own Google login. That way, we won’t be asking for your email address and password.

It takes just 5 steps to share access.

1. Sign into Google AdWords

Go to: http://www.google.com/adwords/ and click Sign in

Google AdWords homepage

 

Enter your email and password and click Sign in. Click Need help? if you don’t remember your email or password. Google will give you choices for recovering it. Once you have recovered your login email address and password, log out and go back to the first step.

At this point, you may be asked to confirm info, like your phone number or backup email address. Be sure the information they show you is correct and hit Save and continue.

2. Tell us your Customer ID

Your Customer ID (Account number) is located on the top right of the pages in AdWords. Send us this 10-digit number and we’ll send you a request for access. Once we let you know that we’ve sent a request for access, then proceed to Step 3.
