02 Feb How to Add People to Facebook Business Manager
Navigating the Business Manager and Ads Manager can be very confusing for most people. Especially with Facebook constantly changing its terms and layouts without updating their learning guides with the latest links and screenshots. Just to iron things out, the “Business Manager” is similar to a “mother account” for the business. Under the Business manager, you can have multiple Pages, Ad Accounts, and even people managing the accounts. So let’s say you are a business who wants to hire an agency to manage your ads or pages for you, how do you add them to your Business Manager?
