How to find your FACEBOOK BUSINESS ID, what it is and how to use it

Learn where to find your FACEBOOK BUSINESS ID and how to use it to fully capitalize on all the options that Facebook Busines offers.

Facebook Business Manager is a tool that centralizes lots of marketing tools which are ideal for making the most of your business’s advertising.

In this era of conversational marketing, the explosion of social media in the first decade of this century has brought many changes and new advantanges for businesses.

Virtual assistants, speakers, conversation bots, the explosion of WhatsApp Business, correct use of the various chat and messaging apps—knowing what is right for you and your business…there are lots of possibilities.

To find the best tools for your business, it is important to understand what each technology has to offer and to know how and where to find them.

There is a revolutionary tool created by Mark Zuckerberg which brings together many utilities: Facebook Business Manager.

When you open a business Facebook account, your advertising accounts (and your ads) will be given a unique identification number. This is your Facebook Business ID.

What is a Facebook Business ID number and what is it for?

It is very useful. For example, let’s say you want to add an ad account to Business Manager or search for a specific campaign, ad, or group of ads. The Facebook Business page turns out to be quite helpful.

But…How do I find my Facebook Business page ID?

In addition to the ID, it is important to understand that the ad accounts for Facebook my Business don’t have a url. They have an identifier: the ID.

It is this ID that you will need to log in to an ad account or when you need support from Facebook.

Just like with pages, you’ll be ready to add an ad account to the Commercial Administrator, request access to one, or create one directly.

1. Go to the ad administrator.

2. Click on “Account” on the drop-down menu. You should see your ID number.


Now that we’ve gotten this far, let me make a recommendation based on my experience with Facebook Business Manager. To save time, you can save your selections and have them predefined. Click to the box next to “save” as a preset and give a name to that value.

That way, the next time you click the “Columns” drop-down menu, you’ll be able to choose a predefined setting to see the ID number for campaigns, ad sets, and ads. You can find out more about personalizing columns here.

Now we’ll find the ID in the address bar:

1. Navigate to the ad administrator.

2. Find the number in the address bar of your browser. If you have trouble finding the number in the address bar, try searching “act=” in the URL.

Finally, to find your ID in the address bar (if you didn’t find it with any of the above methods):

1. Once again, go back to the ad administrator.

2. Click on the campaign, ad set, or ad that you want to open.

3. Look for the number in the address bar of your browser. If you can’t find it, search “selected_campaign_ids” in the URL.

How to set up a business Facebook account

Now you know where to find your Facebook Business ID, it is interesting to explore how to create a Facebook account for your business so you can get the most out of this powerful tool. It’s not complicated.

Let’s start by explaining what Facebook Business is. It is the ideal tool to save precious time on administrating Fan Pages and ad campaigns on Mark Zuckerberg’s social network, and it turns out to be ideal for small businesses and anyone who works in marketing.

Some of the major advantages include:

  • You can easily manage several ad pages and accounts.
  • Avoid mixing personal profiles with work tasks.
  • It allows you to collaborate with other businesses.
  • It adds extra functions that aren’t available on Facebook, such as pixel exchanges and catalog uploading.
  • It allows you to manage ads on Instagram.

Now, how do you open a Facebook account for your business? First, log in here and log in to your Facebook account. Next click “create account.” This is for an account on the business manager platform.

A window will open and ask you for some information. Fill it out. After filling out a certain amount of information, you’ll know that your mission was successful when you receive an email from Facebook: Welcome to Facebook Business.

After all this, it’s on you to boost your business, but all that will be easier once you know how to find your Facebook Business ID.
