How To Setup A Facebook Business Manager Account (And Why It Matters)

Facebook Business Manager is a more secure way to manage your business on Facebook.

Facebook recommends using a Business Manager account for sharing access to your Facebook Pages, advertising accounts and catalogs.

Business Manager is a free tool designed to help you organize and manage your business. Business Manager accounts are created using your personal Facebook profile (to verify your identity). It’s more secure than using just an email address and password to log in.

With Business Manager:

  1. You keep your business separate from your personal Facebook profile.
  2. You control who has access to your Pages, ad accounts and other assets.
  3. You can view who is working on your account.

Before setting up a Business Manager account, be sure to read all the information found at business.facebook.com

Step 1

Login to Facebook, then visit business.facebook.com and click on "Create Account".
