Meta Business Accounts

For many businesses, running Meta ads can be a daunting task. The idea of managing ads and social media accounts, and working to understand the statistics surrounding the campaigns is a scary thought. But in order to successfully run ads for your business, your marketing company will need access to your Meta business account.

It’s important to share Meta access correctly for a smooth and effortless transition to quickly start optimizing and managing your ad campaigns, and other assets. Facebook Business Manager offers a convenient solution for granting access to others without compromising your password. Here’s how we recommend sharing access to your Meta account for the most successful and seamless transition.

What is Meta ad account access sharing? 

Meta ad account access sharing refers to the process of granting someone else permission to manage or view your ad account, allowing them to create, edit, and monitor ad campaigns on your behalf.

Can I share my Meta ad account with multiple people? 

Yes, you can share your Meta ad account with multiple people. You can invite multiple individuals or partners by entering their email addresses during the access sharing process.

What permissions can I grant to someone when sharing my Meta ad account? 

Meta provides different levels of access permissions when sharing ad account access. The available permissions include:

  • Admin: Full access to manage the ad account, including adding or removing people and changing account settings.
  • Advertiser: Access to create and manage campaigns, view insights, and edit ads within the assigned ad account.
  • Analyst: Access to view campaign performance and insights but cannot make any changes or create new campaigns.

Is it safe to share my Meta ad account access with others? 

Sharing Meta ad account access is generally safe if you trust the person or entity you are granting access to. However, it’s important to exercise caution and only share access with individuals or partners you know and trust. It’s also recommended to regularly review and monitor the activity on your ad account to ensure its security.

What are the different types of Meta Ad accounts?
