How to Share your Facebook Ad Account & Facebook Pixel With Be Media

Before you begin you must have a Business Manager to do facebook Advertising

You can’t add an ad account to a Business Manager if:

  • The ad account you’re trying to add has already been added by another business. An ad account can only be owned by one Business Manager. Instead, you can request access to the ad account.
  • You have already added a personal ad account to Business Manager. You can only add one ad account from your personal Facebook account into Business Manager. Instead, you can create a new ad account in Business Manager or you can request access to another ad account.
  • You’ve reached your ad account limit for adding new ad accounts to your business. There’s currently no available option to request more ad accounts. Your ad account limit increases based on your advertising spend. Learn how to view your ad account limit in Business Manager.
  • The ad account is a prepaid ad account. Prepaid ad accounts can be added to Business Managers only if they’re from certain locations.

Add ad accounts in Business Manager

In your Business Manager, you can add ad accounts that you own and get access to ad accounts that other people or businesses own. In the Ad accounts section of your business settings, you’ll see ad accounts that you own and ad accounts that you have access to that are owned by others. If an ad account is owned by another person or business, below the ad account name, you’ll see the name of the person or business who owns the ad account. If you own the ad account, you won’t see additional information.

You can filter by Advertising for selfAdvertising for partnerOwned by selfOwned by partnerActiveDisabled or Closed.

There are three ways to add ad accounts to your Business Manager. We will cover the 2 main ways to share access.

  • Add an ad account: Adding an ad account moves it permanently into Business Manager. You must be both the owner of the ad account and an admin in Business Manager to add the ad account. Please note, once you add an ad account and it’s moved into your Business Manager, this action can’t be reversed. All management of your ad account must be completed within your Business Manager profile. You can’t add an ad account that’s owned by another Business Manager. If you still want to work on an ad account that’s owned by a different business, you can request access to it.
  • Request access to an ad account: If you request access to an ad account in Business Manager, the admin of that Business Manager can grant you permission to work on it.
  • Create a new ad account: If you create a new ad account in Business Manager it will permanently belong to that Business Manager. Once created within Business Manager, the ad account can’t be transferred to an individual owner who doesn’t own a Business Manager.

If you are Jims Mowing it makes sense to call your pixel “Jims Mowing Pixel” for easy reference in the future. On the backend Facebook uses numbers to identify pages, ad accounts, pixels and posts. 

Now you should technically add the Pixel to your website. This can be a little tricky for some people who are not website savvy, we are and we can help. If you can then move down to the section below where we help you share the Pixel.

 

Sharing Your Facebook Pixel with Be Media

The Facebook pixel helps to expand on user conversion insights. This is a small bit of code added to your website that connects the website with the Facebook Ad account to share data when people leave Facebook and do something on your website.

We often come across this problem where we have the client Ad Account but not access to the Pixel.

 Important: we (Be Media & Client) both need to have business manager set up to have this work
