Accessing an Adwords account that I have been given permission

I have been given view only access to a clients' AdWords account and received this email.  I would like to use my Gmail account that I use for all my other AdWords accounts, but when I try to accept this invitation I choose I have an email address and I would like to use my existing Google Account to access this new AdWords account, but when I type in my password is says:   The Google Account ymlawson@gmail.com already has access to an AdWords account (Customer ID: ).  WHY do I need to use a different email address specifically for this account?


Once you complete the process, arnold@newlookinstitute.com will be able to confirm your acceptance and grant you access to the AdWords account. This invitation expires on Jun 5, 2013.

Hi Yvette,

 

You can't use the same email address to access more than one account. If you have a need to do this often, you might want to look into establishing an MCC account. That will allow you to manage multiple accounts with a single login.

 

Otherwise, you will need to use a different email address for the new account.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete
