Did you know you can transfer ownership of your Google Local Page? One of the benefits of the upgrade to social pages on Google Plus is the transfer option. It’s come in very handy! (Yes, this works with non-local Plus Pages too)
Here’s how – text and screenshots below the video
How to Transfer Ownership of Your Google Local Page
Hi it’s Jan Kearney at My Local Business Online and in this video I want to show you how to add a manager to your Google Plus Local page and then to transfer ownership to that new manager. First of all you need to be logged in as your page, this is My Local Business Online’s feed. As you can see if I go to my profile, this is my business page. It’s a local business page.
First of all, you need to set a manager for your page. That manager needs to be set for at least 2 weeks before you can transfer ownership of your page.
Click on your logo
Go to Page Settings
Along the top you’ll see the managers tab. As you can see I’ve already set me as a manager. This is my YouTube account that is connected to my Google Local page – which is on a totally different account (don’t even ask why I did that!) So, I’ve set me as a manager.
To add a manager, click the manager button. You need to invite them and click what role you want them to have. To transfer ownership, you need to have a manager. Type in their email address and click invite.
That manager needs to be on your page for at least 2 weeks before you can transfer ownership. Once that has happened, on the managers setting, click the down arrow and you can then select transfer ownership.
Know that once you have transferred ownership, they don’t need to accept that, or reply to that. However, any accounts connected to the page will still be owned by the original manager. That’s how easy it is:
- Log in as your Page
- Use the down key to select page settings
- Click on the Managers tab
- Add a manager
- Sit and wait it out for 2 weeks
- Use the down arrow key on the new manager, transfer the ownership over
I’ll speak to you soon
