If you don’t already have one, the first step we like our valued partners to take is to create a Facebook Business Manager account. This article will run you through the steps involved in successfully creating your account.

Facebook Business Manager will give you more control over your brand’s online presence by collating all of your assets in one location. It also helps us to better understand your brand and what works for you, through data and insights.

The best news is that creating a Facebook Business Manager account is easy! Follow the steps below to get started and then we’ll show you how to give Knackmap access to your Manager account.

Once your Business Manager is set up, all you need to do is assign Knackmap access! If you already have a Business Manager account and are trying to share access to your page, ad account or other assets, please follow our ‘How-To’ guide here.
