How to Set Up Your Facebook Business Manager AccountLast Updated: May 10, 2019
Depending on how deeply you've dived into the Facebook-advertising-rabbit-hole, you may have come across Facebook Business Manager at some point. If not, no worries! I'll give you a quick introduction as to what it is, and why we'll be using it for your business.
What is Facebook Business Manager?
Facebook Business Manager is a suite of advanced tools created by Facebook to help business collaborate, collect and track data, and ultimately produce high-converting ad campaigns.
Basically, it's a super-charged version of your existing Facebook admin dashboard. It's also free to use! (Since obviously, Facebook is making gazillions by helping their advertisers put out better ads).
Here are the top reasons why it's amazing and why we'll be using it for your business:
✓ Collaborate and share access to pages and ad accounts without sharing ownership of your brand's Facebook page.
✓ No more shared logins and changing passwords.
✓ Manage multiple pages and ad accounts from one dashboard.
✓ Access to advanced tools and analytics for tracking advertising conversions.
✓ Did I mention it's FREE?
So let's dig in!
Step 1: Head on over to this link to create your Facebook Business Manager account.
(Psst - you'll need to connect a Facebook page for your business to get started. If you haven't done that yet, you can find step-by-step instructions here).
Step 2: Follow the set up prompts and claim your Facebook page.
Boom! Now your Business Manager is set up and ready to roll.
