Before starting into the process of how to create a Facebook business manager account, let’s understand what is the purpose of it and why this is needed. Every day millions of users are active on the Facebook platform and spend most of their time in knowing what’s happening around them. Because of this reason, most marketers rely on the Facebook platform and make huge revenue from advertising by serving the right ads based on their needs.

Business Manager is a tool, where one can organize all the assets of their Facebook business in a safe manner without showing anything from their Personal Facebook account. It gives a clear idea of the Ads performance, to track all types of metrics in a detailed manner with clear reports. Anybody can access based on one’s request without providing complete ownership.

In order to create a new Facebook business manager account, first, you need to have a personal Facebook account to confirm the identity and a Facebook page for your business. If you don’t have, create one.

Now, let’s look into the step by step process to set up a Facebook business manager account.

Step 1:

So, the first step is to sign up for the business manager. Click on create an account and ensure that you login with your personal Facebook account
