Facebook Business Manager
Facebook rules have gotten stricter over the years, with business pages being monitored very closely. One of the important things to note is that each business has to have its own ad account for advertising. Don’t stress, we will still do all of your campaign management and updating, this only means that you need to create your own ad account which we can access.
So where to begin? Below we have a step-by-step guide of how to set it up. If you do struggle with this process or don’t have the time to create it, you can send us your Facebook login details, we would be happy to set it up for you!
