A lot of people ask me how to set up their Facebook page so that I, or someone else, can manage their advertising account. It is a relatively simple process that should take no more than 10 minutes, even for someone who doesn’t use Facebook. There are two important parts that you must do to get someone else set up to run your Facebook Ads, you must add your credit card information and then you must add that other person as an admin for your Facebook ads. The following instructions detail how to do both of these:
Add Credit Card Information
Go to your Facebook news feed, click on the link on the left that says “Ads manager.”
Click on the “Billing” link in the left hand sidebar.
After the page refreshes, there will be a new link underneath “Billing” called “Funding Source,” click on that link.
On the top right of this page there is a link that says “Add New Funding Source.” Click on that link to continue.
Confirm your account by typing in your password.
Add your credit card information and you are good to go!
Add Someone Else As A Facebook Ads Admin
Go to facebook and get to your news feed, click on the link on the left that says “Ads manager.”
Click on the “Settings” link in the left hand sidebar.
Fill out your business information on the top of the page until you get to the permissions section (you should see your profile picture). Click on the “+ Add a User” button on the right hand side and add anyone that you want to by email.
If you followed these simple steps, whoever you set up to manage your Facebook advertising account should have received a few email notifications by now and should be ready to go. Congratulations, you did it!
