Add a partner to Facebook Business Manager
When you manage more than one Facebook Page (or Ad Account), you probably use Facebook Business Manager. It’s the right tool for the job: it allows multiple people to work on concepts, ads and manage campaigns. But, in time, you’ll to want to focus more on your business, and get somebody else on board, like an agency. But then you think, “I’ve looked after this page well, am I really going to hand it over to an agent now?” So, don’t let the agency own your page, rather add them as a partner to your Facebook Business Manager account.
