How to set up Facebook Ad Manager Account


If you’d like to run Facebook Ads, it’s not convenient for you and your team members to use your personal ad account to run the ads. To expand the availability to manage Facebook Ads or pages, Facebook launched Facebook Business Manager in April 2014. This tool lets team members or advertisers manage all of your ad accounts, Pages, apps, and permissions in one place.

Now we’re going to introduce how you can create a new or claim an existing ad account under Facebook Business Manager, for your Facebook Ads and strengthen the permission management on many Facebook assets for your team. Here are the reasons why you should advertise on Facebook.

Following are the steps for setting up your Facebook Ad Account


Step 1: Open your Facebook Business Manager

Open your Facebook Business manager – If you haven’t created yours yet, just follow the steps to create it.

Step 2: Go to your Business Manager Settings

Go to the Business Manager Settings and there, you will see the tab Ad Accounts under People and Assets.

Step 4: Type your Ad account name and choose Time zone and Currency

With these steps of setting up a Facebook Ad Manager Account, you can manage and control all of your Ad Accounts in one place!
