Adding Xune Solutions To Your Facebook Assets

Working with Xune means you’re probably going to be using Facebook. That means you’ll need to give us access to some of your Facebook Business assets. It can seem a bit complicated at first but it’s pretty simple. There are just a few steps you need to take first. If you’re new to Facebook, you’ll need to create the assets first. 

This tutorial will show you how to either create your Facebook assets or grant us access to your Facebook assets. Continue reading to see how you can do so and kickstart your marketing journey. 

What You Need & Why

Right now, you’re either a business owner with a Facebook presence or a business owner without one. 

 

There are a few different assets most businesses use on Facebook – a Facebook page, a Facebook Ad account, a Pixel, a Business Manager account and a product catalogue. These are needed for Ad Campaigns and also for a general Facebook presence for your business. 

 

If you already have these setups, click the button below to go to the granting access section. If you haven’t set these up yet, carry on reading and find out how. 

Facebook Business Manager Account

Creating a Business Manager Account

Ad Accounts and Business Manager accounts are not the same. Business Manager accounts are like the central hub for your Facebook where you can then find everything (ad accounts, pixel etc)

To create a Business Manager account, visit the website https://business.facebook.com or click on the button here. Then, click on “create an account” and enter your details to Facebook. 

Sharing your Facebook Business Manager Account with Xune

Here you will be adding a partner to your Business Manager and you will be the one that will be granting Xune access to work on specific assets.

 

In order to add a partner to your Business Manager account:

 

  1. Head over to the Business Manager settings
  2. Choose the Partners tab
  3. Click the plus button
  4. Fill in Xune’s Business Manager ID – 335038126902653
  5. On the next screen go through all tabs one by one, assign the assets to Xune
