How to Setup a Facebook Business Account


It’s a good idea for your non-profit, ministry, or small business to have any or all of your Facebook pages underneath a “Business Manager Account.” It allows multiple coworkers and partners to have access to it as well. There are many benefits to having it setup in this way.

Note: If any of these instructions in the video or below become outdated, view Facebook’s step-by-step guide.

  1. Log into the Facebook account you plan on using as an admin for your Facebook page.
  2. Go to
  3. Click on “Create Account.”
  4. Name your Business Manager account. It doesn’t have to be the same name as what your Facebook page will be named. This will not be public.
  5. Fill out your name and your business email. It is very important that you do not use your personal email but instead use your business email. This could be the email you use for your evangelistic accounts.
  6. Click, “Next”
  7. Add your business details.
    1. These details are not public information.
    2. Business Address:
      1. Sometimes but very rarely Facebook may send something via the mail to verify or confirm your business account. The address will need to be a place that you can get access to this mail.
      2. If you don’t want to use your personal address:
        1. Ask a trusted partner/friend if you can use their address for the business account.
        2. Consider opening up a UPS Store Mailbox or iPostal1 account.
    3. Business Phone Number
      1. If you don’t want to use your number, create a Google Voice number through your ministry email.
    4. Business Website:
      1. If you don’t have your website created yet, put the domain name you purchased or insert any site here as a placeholder.
  8. Click, “Done.”

Once the page loads, you will notice that you have several options. You can:

  • Add a page.
    • If you click, “Add Page” then any page you are already admin of will show up. If you need to create a Facebook page, we will discuss how to do this in the next unit.
  • Add an ad account. We will discuss this also in a later unit.
  • Add other people and give them access to your Business Manager page.
