Create Facebook Ad Account

< Back to Help Center

Creating a Facebook ad account is one of the most important steps in marketing your business.

It is important to reach the right audience for the services or products you’re advertising. With over 2 billion active users, Facebook is a goldmine for businesses looking to reach new customers.

The major benefit of creating a Facebook Ad Account is you can manage and optimize all your campaigns in one place. 

In this guide, we’ll show you how to create a Facebook ad account and get started with advertising your business. Let’s get started!

There are 3 ways to add ad accounts to your Business Manager: 

Add an Ad Account: Adding an ad account moves it permanently into Business Manager. You must be both the owner of the ad account and an admin in Business Manager to add the ad account. Please note, once you add an ad account and it’s moved into your Business Manager, this action can’t be reversed.

Request Access to an Ad Account: If you request access to an ad account in Business Manager, the admin of that Business Manager can grant you permission to work on it.

Create a new ad account: If you create a new ad account in Business Manager, it’ll permanently belong to that Business Manager. Once created within Business Manager, the ad account can’t be transferred to an individual owner who doesn’t own a Business Manager.

Add an ad account in Business Manager

  1. Go to Business Settings.
  2. Click Accounts from the left side menu. Then, click Ad Accounts.
  3. Click the blue Add dropdown menu. Choose one of the 3 options: Add an Ad Account, Request Access to an Ad Account or Create a new ad account.
  4. If you choose to request access or add an ad account, enter the ad account ID. Learn where to find the account ID.
  5. Follow the prompts to select people and access levels.

Note:  Deactivating an ad account doesn’t delete the ad account from your business. A deactivated ad account still counts towards your ad account limit.
