Sales Partner house and demo accounts

As a Sales Partner for Google Analytics 360 Suite, you have 2 types of product accounts you can use for your business:

  • House account: A product account like Analytics, Tag Manager, or Optimize that you use for your own business assets, for example, the Analytics account that you use to collect data about your company website.
  • Demo account: A product account like Analytics that you use exclusively to demonstrate product capabilities to existing or prospective clients.

You link a house account to your own Sales Partner organization:

  • Sales Partner organization > Products > House account

You link a demo account to a demo organization that is a child of your Sales Partner organization:

  • Sales Partner organization > Sales > Clients > Demo organization > Products > Demo account

How to get house and demo accounts

  1. Make sure you and your colleagues are familiar with the new 360 Suite Organization structure. Enabling a product account as a house or demo account associates the product account with your company Organization, so it may no longer appear as a personal account to you and your colleagues.

  2. Ensure that you have signed the Master Reseller Agreement and have an Order Form on file for each product type for which you want a house or demo account.
  3. Decide which product accounts to link to your Partner Organization (house accounts) and which accounts should be linked to the demo Organization (demo accounts).
  4. Link your product accounts to your Partner Organization or the demo Organization (demo Organizations must be configured by your Channel Manager first). Learn more
  5. Activate the Suite Experience for the Organization. Learn more
  6. Upgrade assets:
    • House accounts: Upgrade House Account assets to the 360 service level via the standard upgrade process.
    • Demo accounts: Complete this form to request a product upgrade from Standard to 360. Upgrade requests are reviewed on a monthly basis. Once your request is processed, you will be notified by the Google team.
  7. Let your colleagues know about the new configuration of your company product accounts.
