  11. Click the Add button to continue.
  12. At the top of the window (in the address bar), should be something like https://business.facebook.com/settings/?business_id=XXXXXXX …please copy & paste this link & send it to us (including the numbers at the end).
  13. Next up, go to https://business.facebook.com and select your business.
  14. From the middle of the screen, click Add Ad Account.
  15. Click the grey Create ad account button or option (if you see a dialog with 3 options, it’ll be the last option).
  16. Give it a name, set the timezone & payment info, etc.
  17. When prompted, select the option for This ad account is for my business.
  18. Click Create.
  19. Then if prompted, enable Admin Access – Manage Ad Account and click Assign. A series of letters and/or numbers will be provided to you – please email these to us as well.

Once we receive these, we will enter them into our end and request access to the account…
