About Business Manager
Business Manager helps you integrate Facebook marketing efforts across your business and with external partners (if you choose). You can use this free platform to run and track your ads, manage assets such as your Pages and ad accounts, and add an agency or marketing partners to help manage your business.
Once Pages are imported into Business Manager, they can no longer be accessed outside the tool.
After Pages are imported into Business Manager:
You'll manage your assets in Business Manager, rather than from your personal Facebook account.
Only people who have been granted access to the associated Business Manager account will be able to access ad creation, editing and performance reporting tools for the Page.
Business Manager is an umbrella tool that sits above Facebook’s self-service tools Ads Manager, Reporting and Pages.
At the top, Business admins have full access, and may create necessary permissions for anyone who works on specific Pages or ad accounts.
Agency Business Manager
Why Business Manager?
You need more than one ad account
Create separate ad accounts for every client or business you serve, pay for ads with different payment methods, and organize by objective for reporting.
You need to request access to Pages or ad accounts
If you have clients you can request access to their Pages and ad accounts to become an analyst or advertiser.
You can allow specific, role-based access to ad accounts, Pages, and other assets that your business manages, as well as easily see who's working on what.
You need business level insights and reporting
See the performance of your ads across different ad accounts and get reports of the assets and people your business is responsible for.
The Business Manager interface
Your Business Manager dash has three primary tabs: Home, Ad Account Overview and Activity. From the dash you can access many of your day to day needs.
Here you'll find:
Ad account overview
From this tab you can run custom reports and access a range of performance metrics including:
Under this tab you can see recent role changes to everyone who has access to your Business Manager.
Create your Business Manager
Once you’re ready to create a Business Manager, follow these steps:
Go Here: Click Create Account.
Enter your business name and click Continue.
Enter the your name and email (or those of the primary Business Manager admin).
Add a cover photo and logo.
That's it! You've created your account. Next, you'll need to add Facebook Pages, Ad Accounts and People.
It is essential to have at least one Facebook for your Business Manager.
Click Add Page. You can add a Page you own, request access to someone else's Page, or create a new one.
Add the name or URL of your Page. Then click Add Page.
If you're an Admin on that Page, it will be added to your Business Manager automatically. Otherwise a request will be send to the Admin and once accepted, the Page will be added.
You can add additional Pages later by clicking Business Settings.
Add Ad Accounts
Click Add Ad Account.
Enter your Ad account ID number, and click Add ad Account. You can add additional ad accounts later by clicking Business Settings.
Enter the email address for each person you want to add.
In most cases, we recommend adding people as employees and then assigning specific accounts and tools to them, however if you want this person to have full access to Business Manager select Admin access.
Assign access to Pages, Ad Accounts and Catalogs.
Select the assets you want to assign access to.
Select the Role you want this person to have.
Click Invite. This person will receive an email inviting them to the Page, Ad Account or Catalog that you've added them to.
Click Add More if you have additional people you want to add, otherwise click Done.
Once your Business Manager is up and running, you can add people, Pages, ad accounts and more by clicking Business Settings. Here you can also add partners, apps, instagram accounts, data sources and other assets.
Add people, partners, Pages and ad accounts
To add people, under Users, click People. From here you can add people and assign or change their business roles and which Pages and ad accounts they have access to. The process is similar for Partners (for example, ad agencies you're working with).
To Add a Page, Request Access to a Page or Create a New Page, under Accounts, click Pages.
Similarly, to add ad accounts, under Accounts, click Ad Accounts. From here you can Add an Ad Account you control, Request Access to an Ad Account someone else controls, or Create a New Ad Account.
Here you can:
Access your Business Manager ID
Change security settings
Update basic information such as the name of business and name and email of the primary account holder.
Some people may want to avoid showing ads adjacent to controversial content or material that doesn't fit their brand, so Facebook provides a variety of options for advertisers to control where their ads appear across the Facebook family of apps and services. Advertisers can block delivery of ads to specific apps, domains and Pages by creating Block Lists at the Business Manager, ad account or campaign level.
To add block lists, click Brand Safety and select Block lists.
