How To Add Multiple Admins to Google+ Pages
Brands and businesses on Google+ received some good news earlier this week when Google introduced the ability to assign up to 50 admins to a single Google+ Page. For companies with large social media teams, this update will make managing your Page even easier.
Google has also made it possible to transfer ownership of the Page. While a Page can have multiple managers, only one person can own it. So if one person created the Page, but another is responsible for it, the creator can pass on the ownership. It’s important to note that managers have the same abilities as owners except that they can’t delete the Page or transfer ownership.
If you’d like to add additional admins to your brand’s Page, first visit your Page and select “Google+ Settings” under the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
You will be taken to the general settings page and from there you’ll want to switch from General to Managers. This can be done by clicking the managers button along the left side of the Page.
From here it gets really easy. To add an additional team member as a manager just add his or her email address and click on Invite. Google requires an email address (instead of a Google+ profile link) as an added level of security. Additionally it allows the invited manager to sign up if he or she hasn’t already, or accept the invitation with a different email address.
Adding admins takes almost no time at all. Once your managers are set in place it’s a good idea to review responsibilities with the rest of your social media team. In particular, it’s helpful decide who will post what and when so you can avoid duplicate posts or replies. To learn more about Google+ Brand Pages add Google+ Your Business to your Circles.
