What is the Facebook and Instagram Integration?
To display ads on Facebook or Instagram, first, you need to set up your Facebook Integration with RollWorks by connecting your business page to your RollWorks account so that you can serve ads both on Facebook and Instagram directly from RollWorks.
If in addition to displaying ads on Instagram, you want to have the ability to manage and respond to comments on your Instagram Ads you will need to take an additional step and Connect your Instagram Account.
Once your Facebook business page is connected to your RollWorks account, a Facebook pixel from RollWorks will be placed on your website.
Before you start
- You must be the Admin of your Facebook Business Manager account or the Page Owner.
- We need 'Advertiser' access to post Facebook ads on your behalf and pull the data we need to report on campaign performance. For more information on managing page roles and the differences in access levels, visit this Facebook's Help Center article.
After you confirm you have administrator access to connect your Facebook page to RollWorks you can continue by either going through the RollWorks menu Settings or by creating your first Facebook Campaign. Below we will walk you through both options.
