Step 1: Log into your personal Facebook profile.

Don't have one? Well, get crackin'! You need a personal page in order to create a business page and or a business manager. Facebook is shutting down personal profile pages it deems 'risky'. Look for more info on that in our next blog post.

Step 3: Add your Facebook business page(s)

  • You can add an existing Facebook business page or create a new one. You can also request access to someone else’s page if you help manage it.

  • While you can use Business Manager to manage clients’ Facebook pages and ad accounts, it’s important to use the Request Access option rather than the Add Page option. If you add your client’s pages and ad accounts to your Business Manager, they’ll have limited access to their own business assets.

  • To add your Facebook page to Facebook Business Manager, go to the Business Manager dashboard. Click Add Page, then, in the pop-up box, click Add Page again.
