If you are managing the online presence or reputation for your clients you will need to be able to connect\authenticate their online services and accounts via myPresences.
You can either have your clients do this directly or with your help, but the better option is have them give you access to their services so that you can do this on their behalf.
This has the following benefits over doing it with them or for them, or to providing you with their usernames and passwords:
- They can revoke or remove access at anytime. Giving them full control over their own accounts.
- They can better control what you have access to.
- You are able to make changes whenever you need to without having to contact the client.
- You can re-authenticate their accounts if they become un-authenticated.
We recommend the following for each of the listed services, if a service is not listed then research how to be added to their account on that service.
You should be added as an admin on any business pages you need to manage.
Google My Business, Google Analytics, Google Search Console
Your email address should be given access to any accounts owning Google My Business listings and websites you will be managing.
We recommend that the client authenticates their account with you, otherwise they may have to provide their twitter username and password.
LinkedIn Company Pages
You should be added as an admin of the company page of your client. This will require you having a linkedin account and being a first degree contact with the person who has the ability to add you as an admin.
