How to get manager access to your clients’ accounts.Log in to AdWords Manager account : Just like you would for any other AdWords account.Click the “Accounts” tab at the top if you are not already there: Click the big red + Account button: It’s the only big red button on the page.

This will take you to the “Enter customer IDs” page Add the customer ID, one per line, for every one you want manager access to: Click the semi-big blue Continue button: This will send out emails to the email addresses associated with your clients AdWords account, letting them know you seek permission to manager their accounts. Send them their favorite chocolates and candies while you let them know the request is coming: Flattery gifts can vary pending on your clients’ tastes. Once they click to approve the request, you’re in.
At this point, y’all can figure out what you want to do between having “Manager,” or “Sub-Manager” access.
AdWords calls this, “Linking Accounts,” which will confuse some of us old-timers because we remember linking accounts before the manager account was a ‘thing. So, yeah, prepare for that.
Also, make sure you’re clients are aware you’re requesting access so they don’t get nervous when they get a call from AdWords.
