If someone else at your business has already created your Facebook Page, you will need to be added to the Facebook Page as an Admin before you can create the Facebook Business Manager account.

  4. Click the Create Ad Account button. A new prompt will appear to add users to the ad account. At this point, you can just click the Skip button as you are the only user in your Business Manager Account at this time.

You will then need to set your Business Page as the primary page for the Business Manager Account.

  1. Go to your Business Manager Info page
  2. Click the Edit button to the right of your Business Manager Name, Identification Number, and Temporary Thumbnail Image.
  3. The Primary Page field will become a search box, enter your Facebook Business Page Name and select your Facebook Page.
  4. Click the Save button that shows up and your Business Manager Account will automatically take on the branding of your Facebook Page.

Did you install your Facebook Pixel on your website yet? This is a crucial step so you can have Facebook track the people who visit your website, then you can create audiences of these visitors and RETARGET these users with Facebook and Instagram ads (i.e. “warm audience”)! Installing your Facebook Pixel requires access to your websites code, therefore you should link up with your website developer to provide them with this info.
