Why is it so important to have a clear methodology for access management?

Facing the new client is key. Several of us who Sad Life Box work at CrackPPC today have been on that side for a long time and we know that hiring/changing agencies is always a dramatic process that usually takes a long time and in which different problems usually arise related to access (and even ownership, although this is another topic) to the different platforms and assets.

Being clear and concise at the beginning of a relationship will convey priceless trust.
Internally it will allow us to:

Accesses in GOOGLE ADS
We start with the king of kings, Google Ads. The most widely used platform and, surprisingly, the one where, from our point of view, it is easiest to manage access .

Things to keep in mind:

There are no super admins in Google Ads. Account ownership can be transferred without any problem.
An account can hang on several different MCCs (of different structures) without any confrontation.
Accounts can move between MCCs within the same structure.
Thus, each manager should have an individual MCC (created from their corporate email) that hangs from a parent MCC at agency level.
