Multiple Companies within one Google Account

Rising Star

I have a customer that has a strange question I don't think it works withing the Google Guidelines.

 

Example:

They setup the account and collect the billing and create multiple campaigns for each client so they can control ad spend. 

 

They create a unique landing page and phone number for each of the clients and manage the ads for these contractors.

 

Please tell me what could go wrong in this situation... Thx

Hi William

 

Why not just use MCC - my client centre - that is what it is designed for. You can read about it here and here.

Hi William,

 

David is right.  It's best to have each client in their own account and you can easily manage multiple individual accounts via an MCC setup.

 

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Hi William,

I am not sure it is actually completly forbidden as such, but Google does forbid it in their guidelines for 3rd parties ( Google  Certified Companies). http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=152979  (point 7)

 

( what can go wrong, is that if one of the clients clients gets banned the rest can go with him, with an MCC you don't have that problem)

Thx Guys, that is exactly what I figured.... Personally I have a MCC account but this client wanted to do more of what DEX does as without creating multiple accounts, I just needed to hear that what I told the client was correct. We need to build out each account for each client just as I do with all my clients and then they would have a MCC account to manage all of them from one interface. It is just safer that way..

 

Thx
