Manage accounts on behalf of business owners

Hi

My clients want me to do their business listing on google for them.

How do I manage accounts on their behalf?

Do i need a different account for every business owner or can I manage it all under my own account?

Thank You

The business listing should be owned by the business owner's Google account.
The business owner can make you a manager of his/her business listing.
Please, see this help section that explains Owners and Managers of business listings.

We are managing 100+ accounts across multiple accounts, is there any way to have them all in one account.

@Clark R, the advice from @treebles is applicable to your situation as well. 

 

Are the 100+ listings that you manage a chain or franchise? Or are they totally different businesses?

Thanks Clark. In that case, if you want them all in one account, you will need to use the advice that Treebles gave.

Each account tops out at 100 from what I can see, is there a way to have that limit removed?

No, 100 is the maximum, unless you are bulk verifying.

If I get bulk verified with one business with 12 locations in theory could I add other none related businesses to that same account that has no limit?

If you only had 12 businesses than I believe you could, yes.
