Click the Add button to the right, and select an option for adding the page, an ad account, or any other asset. The assets you choose to add will be added to the Business Manager as soon as they are added because you control the full use of them.
- It is best to only add the assets that you own personally to the Business Manager since there is only one business manager who can be able to claim the asset. Therefore, if you take over the Facebook page of your client and your client is the only one to be permitted to access the page; they will not be allowed to claim it for themselves. You must instead ask for access to the page, ad account, or some other assets.
- It is crucial to remember when you claim ad accounts. While pages can be deleted completely from the Business Manager, ad accounts cannot be removed. So, you should not take over an account that is not owned by you.
- If you are interested in connecting your personal Instagram account as an ad or page You can do it in your Business Settings by clicking Instagram Accounts. Select the Connect your Instagram Account button on the right side of the screen to start the process.
Request Access to Business Assets Owned by Others
If the asset you own is not yours (page ad account or catalog of products) You may request to add the asset to your Business Manager.
The approval of the owner or administrator is required prior to the assets can be added to the Business Manager. Make sure you are aware of the fact that Facebook often limits the number of assets you are able to request until the admins and owners approve your requests.
Make sure to choose this method you should choose when you manage client assets or any other assets that you do not own.
