3: Assigning Roles To New Users

To add a new user, go to account roles and click on 'add a user.' The most important aspect of navigating through is assigning tasks to the new user.


Your analyst will only be able to view the performance of your ad. It is ideal for those who are in charge of creating reports.


Your advertiser will be able to see and create and edit ads through the use of the payment method. This role is ideal for someone who will be creating ads for you, but you do not want to access your payment details.


The admin will be able to do everything and access all the information. From editing the payment details to managing all the users' roles, from acting as the analyst to the advertiser, the admin can do it all. This role is perfect for the person who will be managing the amount of access that each user can get, deciding the budget or spending limit for each ad, and more.

Once you navigate the Facebook Ads Manager, you will eventually get the hang of it and remember where each feature is. Since Facebook has recently changed the layout of the Facebook Ads Manager, it can become a little confusing to old members. However, it is much more straightforward as most of the options are located within the menu. If used right, you will be able to optimize your ads to be exceedingly profitable.
