MCC account + Agency + Freelance + Clients

Imagine this:

> Agency (me)
> Freelance X
> Freelance Y
> Client A
> Client B
> Client C


I want that:
> Agency can manage every clients
> Freelance X can manage A + B
> Freelance Y can manage B + C


How is it possibile to do that?


Specifically, I can't figure out how Freelancers X and Y can work at the same time with the Client B. Any suggestion?

If I understood correctly do this:-


Ask Freelance X and Freelance Y to create MCC accounts. Then add them as Managers for the respective accounts that you want them to own and manage i.e. X will manage A, B and Y will manage B and C as per your post. Note that an individual AdWords account can be linked to maximum 5 manager accounts. So I think what you are trying is quite possible.

Just make sure your MCC account (Agency) is the first added to the client account, then the next day add the freelancer MCC accounts . This way the account spending will be attributed to your MCC account , instead of the other MCC accounts.

Unfortunately it does not seem possible (or maybe I'm doing something wrong?)


I have read that you can manage an individual AdWords account with up to 5 manager AdWords accounts.


But, if I create an account (the so-called optional-login) directly from my MCC, it would seem that I can not invite any other manager.


I can invite only users (who not have already been using their email account in an individual AdWords account).

I found a solution:
> Agency, Freelance X and Freelance Y have their own respective MCC
> Agency creates three account (aka optiona-login account) in his MCC
> Freelance X, in his MCC, link the A+B accounts
> Freelance Y, in his MCC, link the B+C accounts

It's possible because:
> every individual adwords account can be managed by max 5 MCC
> Freelancers link the account FROM their MCC and not "Agency invite Freelancers" (< it will result in an individual adwords account invitation; not possible for Freelancers to accept because they own an MCC account)

Hi Marco,

I`m trying to replicate your setup. Could you help me out here?
Currently I have:

Agency MCC
------Sub MCC
-----------Client Account

How can I have freelancers connect to the client account without having the client ask to accept the invitation?
