A larger piece of the marketing puzzle means delegating more tasks and involving more employees, which brings us to Facebook Business Manager.

If you’re not familiar with Facebook Business Manager, you’re probably asking

“What is Facebook Business Manager?” and “Why should I care?”

The Benefits

The main perk of using Facebook Business Manager is organization. Having your entire team using one centralized dashboard allows you to keep things organized and transparent and the page roles allows you to set certain limitations based on what you want to be accessible and by who.

Assigning Roles

Not all roles are created equal. They are broken down by Business Roles and Additional Roles.

Business Roles consist of Employee and Admin Access.

Employee Access allows people to work on assigned accounts and tools. There are a number of reasons why you might want to place restrictions for certain people.

Admin Access includes full control of your Business Manager Account, from tools, settings, and roles. We suggest only grant Admin Access to those you trust.

Finance Analysts can look over general financial details, such as transactions, invoices, and payment methods. 

Finance Editors can do everything a Finance Analyst can do, plus they can edit payment methods.
