Business Manager

If you already have a Facebook advertising account, you can set up a business manager to give you access to multiple pages as an advertiser or company. This means that if you have a business manager account, you can manage pages and ads through this profile in the most secure way possible.

By utilising Facebook’s business manager, you ensure that you can see who is working on what and what they have access to. It’s also a way for you to keep your business’s Facebook profile separate from your personal profile.

Furthermore, it is a method for gaining full access to your Facebook page; this means, a business manager gives you access to ad accounts, pixels, and a variety of other accesses within Facebook’s wide range of functionalities.
