Where exactly IS your Facebook ad account?

How to access your Facebook ad account

So you’ve decided you want to start using Facebook ads.

Great. Now what?!

Well, the very first thing you need to do is find your ad account.

I know this seems like a pretty basic thing, but you’d be amazed at:

A) How many people struggle to find it, and

B) How much of the training out there just skips over this basic-yet-vital piece of information

So, if you’ve never, ever even been into your ad account before, here’s how you find it:

  1. Log into Facebook
  2. Go to the top menu, and find the “down” arrow at the far right hand side (next to the question mark)
  3. Look down the list until you see the “Create Ads” and “Manage Ads” options
  4. Click on “Manage Ads”
  5. Wait for your ad account to be “magically” set up while you wait
  6. Use the big “mega” menu at the top left to find your way around your account

Here’s a quick video walkthrough to show you what I mean:


Congratulations! You’re in your Facebook ad account.

What’s next?

Well, before you leap into running ads there’s two more things you’ll need to do:
1. Add a payment method (under “Billing & Payment Methods”)
2. Install the Facebook pixel on your site

And have an awesome day!
