To run Facebook Ads for a Shopify store, dropshippers should first learn how to create a Facebook Ads account. From this account, we can start ad campaigns, set goals and manage all aspects of our ads. 

Creating a Facebook ads account can get a bit technical, so pay attention to the steps. Once you follow all of the steps, it will all make sense.

Assuming you already have a Facebook Page, the general sequence is as follows: first, create a Business Manager Account, then, inside of the business manager, create an Ads account.

Let’s walk through the steps

How To Create A Facebook Business Manager Account

First, Facebook requires us to have a Business Manager Account.

From here, we can create and manage our Facebook ad accounts and many other aspects related to our ads (among quite a few other business aspects).

To begin, let’s go to the Facebook Business Manager homepage

Click ‘Create Account’ on the top right. In the pop-up window, enter your business name and other information.

After clicking submit, Facebook takes us to the Facebook Business Suite page. From here, we can create an Ads account, manage it, and deal with other business-related activities. 

How To Create A Facebook Ads Account

Perfect, now that you have a business account, you can create an Ads Account.

On the Business Manager homepage, go to the drop-down arrow on the left and make sure to select the Facebook Page that corresponds to the store you want to promote.

Next, click on ‘More Tools’ and select ‘Business Settings’ on the left side.

Don’t forget that Facebook may change the layout of these menu options from time to time. If you don’t see a particular menu option, then Facebook probably changed the path of getting to it. Try to see where the option has moved to.
