How to Get Started in the Facebook Business Manager
Simply follow the instructions to get your Facebook Business Manager ready!
Create Your Business Manager Account
Head on over to https://business.facebook.com/ in order to set up your first business account.
Once there, you should see a big blue button that appropriately says “Create Account.” 😯
Next, it’ll have you log in to Facebook just like usual:
Then, create your Facebook Business Manager account by typing in your business name. This name will be visible to everyone and can’t contain any special characters.
Next, create your business profile by typing in your name and email address.
Pretty smooth sailing so far, right?!
Once you signup, you are launched directly into the Business Manager app that will look something like this:
Here is your dashboard, where you can access everything about your business.
The first step they will prompt is to create or ‘claim’ your Facebook business page and ad accounts.
Look in the upper right-hand corner for a button that says “Business Settings.”
If you already have a Facebook business page or ad account setup you should see it in the middle of the screen now. Otherwise, look for the “Setup Guide” text link in the upper right-hand side.
Next, they’ll send you to a starting point to manage everything related to your Business Manager.
Here you can get started with ad accounts, pages, and people. They’ve simplified these options a lot, so it should be self-explanatory to see what you should be doing next (i.e. “Create Page” for first-time visitors, or “Claim Page” if you already have one up, etc.).
