#2 As described Google: Here’s how to add a manager to your Google Business Profile:

  1. Access your Business Profile: You can find your profile by searching for your business name on Google Maps or Search. Once you find it, click on it to access your profile.

  2. Go to Settings: Look for the menu icon (usually three dots) and click on it. Then, select “Business Profile settings”.

  3. Manage Users: Within the settings, you’ll find a section for “People and access” or “Managers”. Click on that section.

  4. Invite a Manager: Click the “Add” button and enter the email address of the person you want to designate as a manager.

  5. Assign Permissions: Choose “Manager” from the access options. Note: You can also choose “Owner” if you want to give them full access to manage the profile.

  6. Send Invite: Once you’ve selected their access level, click “Invite” to send them an invitation. They will receive an email notification to accept the invitation and become a manager of your Business Profile.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Only the owner (or primary owner) of the Business Profile can add or remove managers.
  • The person you invite must have a Google account to become a manager.
  • You can change a manager’s access level later by going back to the “People and access” section and selecting their name.

I hope this helps!
