Get Partner Access to Facebook Assets: Pages, Pixels, Product Catalogues, Instagram, Ad Accounts and Business Managers

 

There are several ways you can get access to your clients’ Facebook and Instagram assets. It can get confusing! (That’s why we created Leadsie to automate everything). If you want to do it manually, we recommend it’s best practice to access your clients’ assets by requesting ‘Partner Access’ to their business manager. 

 

In this section, you’ll learn how to request access for your clients’ Facebook Assets, including Ad Accounts, Facebook Pages, Pixels, Catalogues and Instagram through Facebook Business Manager by getting added as a partner your client’s Facebook Business Manager. Can’t request partner access for some reason? Don’t worry, we cover the other options below too.

Why Partner Access?

There are other options to get access to your client’s assets. They range from using your client’s login (never do that!), to getting added as a person to your client’s page or ad account. None of these options are great alternatives, here are a few reasons it’s better to get access as a partner through your client’s Business Manager:

 

  • Easier to manage: If you set up partner access, you and your client can manage access to multiple assets (pages, pixels, ad accounts, etc) in one place – rather than doing these things one by one. If you have multiple people in your agency, you can also assign them access to work on a client’s assets without bothering your client again. 

 

  • Transparency: If you want to build a lasting client relationship based on trust, you have to be transparent with your client. Getting added as a Partner to their Business Manager means that your client remains in control and always has the ability to see what changes you are making.

 

  • Data ownership (GDPR): Data ownership is quite a minefield you don’t want to get too far into. Your client retains ownership over their assets and data using Business Manager, rather than connecting your own Facebook account. You are also not collecting data in your account and avoid any liability for a GDPR breach.

 

  • A clean way out: Business relationships end. Maybe your client decides to take social media in-house or they want to try another agency – or they stop running advertising because of a global pandemic (ugh!). When the inevitable happens, you don’t want to be the holder of all the keys. You want an easy way out, so if the next agency needs access to an account, you are not the one who has to give it to them. We’ve all been there. Just keep it simple and leave ownership of assets with your client.

 

If your clients don’t have Facebook Business Manager set up, it’s explained how to do it here.

 

With our tool Leadsie, you don’t need to worry about this bit ? Your client will be walked through the creation of a Facebook Business Manager, their assets will be automatically added and shared with you.

Step By Step Instructions for Partner Access to Facebook Assets 

 

Let’s go through step by step how to request partner access to your client’s Facebook Business Manager.

 

Spoiler Alert: We built the tool Leadsie to make the process much easier and save you the headache of getting access. Every time you get a new client or run an audit for a new prospect, you will no longer need to go through the below process.

With our tool, all you need to do is share your private access link with your client. They then log in with their FB account and confirm access. It’s as simple as that!

Step by Step Instructions: Request Partner Access to Client Assets (Page, Ad Account, Pixel, etc.) through Facebook Business Manage

 

Let’s get to it:

 

  1. Go to your Business Manager and select the Business Manager account you want to use with your clients
  2. On the left side, select Partners
  3. Click on “Add” and select “Ask a Partner to share their assets”

 

  1. Next, fill out the information:

 

  1. Then choose the asset types you require access to (page, ad account, pixels, etc.)

 

  1. Your client will now receive an email like this:

 

  1. Your client now needs to go to Facebook Business Manager, select the assets for each asset type, and confirm. Then you’ll have access.

No Partner Access? No Problem

If for some reason you really can’t request partner access, we’ve got you! Here are some instructions for requesting access to your client’s Facebook Page or Ad Account only. 

Facebook Pages

If you want to request access to your client’s Facebook Page only, you can still do so without requesting partner access. For this way to request access, your client does not need to have Business Manager set up.

 

Disadvantages:

  • You must assign a primary Facebook Page to your Business Manager (for identification)
  • Your client must go to Facebook to approve your request (there won’t be any emails)
  • You can only get access to the Facebook Page of your client, no other assets

Here’s how it works:

 

  1. First, go to your Facebook Business Manager.

 

  1. On the left menu, under “Accounts”, go to Pages

 

  1. Click on “Add” and select “Request Access to a Page”

 

  1. If you have not done so, select the primary page for your business.

 

  1. Find your client’s page by typing in the name of the page

 

  1. Then, select the necessary access level you require

 

  1. Now, hit “Request Access” and your client will receive a notification within Facebook.

 

  1. Now to grant you access, it’s your client’s turn. The admin(s) of the page will see a notification in their Facebook account:

 

  1. They’ll see that you requested access to their Page and need to hit “Accept Request”

 

  1.  And now you’re done. Now you can see your client’s page under the pages you have access to. Before you can use your access, make sure you add yourself by clicking “Add People” as well.

 

  1. Now you can manage their page and post on it.

 

Would have been nice to get all of this in 2 clicks, right? Well, with Leadsie, you can ?

Facebook Ad Accounts

We recommend accessing your client’s ad account by requesting partner access. But if you can’t do this for any reason, you can still request access to their ad account only. For this method, your client does not need to have Business Manager set up.

 

The disadvantages are:

  • You need to know your client’s Ad Account ID
  • You must assign a primary Facebook Page to your Business Manager (for identification)
  • Your client must go to Facebook to approve your request (there won’t be any emails)
  • You can only get access to the Facebook Ad Account of your client, no other assets

Here’s how it works:

  1. First, go to your Facebook Business Manager.
  2. On the left menu, under “Accounts”, go to Ad Accounts , and click on “Add”.

 

  1. Type in your client’s Ad Account ID, select the level of access you need hit “confirm”.

 

  1. Now, your request has been sent and an admin of the Ad Account has to confirm it within Facebook.

 

  1. As soon as the access is granted, it will show as an asset in your Business Manager

 

Leadsie: 2-Click Access to Facebook Assets (Page, AdAccount and more)

Ready for the revolution? ?

 

We don’t know why people need a PhD in Facebook Ads to give you access, but we were fed up with it. So we built a tool that makes requesting and giving access easy as pie ?.

 

Here’s how the whole process works with Leadsie:

 

How to Get Access to Facebook Pages and Ad Accounts with Leadsie

It’s as simple as copying your link and sending it to your client ?

 

You have 2 links, one for view-only access, one for “manage” access (admin) access. Just share the link that’s suitable with your client.

 

Only want to request specific assets? No problem, you can also create a custom request and share that with your client.

 

Your client simply needs to open your request link in their browser (also works great on mobile), login with their Facebook Account, confirm the assets you requested, and it’s done ?

 

Done ?

 

TikTok

There are several types of accounts and assets you may need to manage on TikTok.  You may want to manage your client’s social media posts on TikTok, or you may want to run ads on TikTok on their behalf. 

 

To post on TikTok for them, you’ll need to access their TikTok account. If you want to manage TiKTok ads for your client, you will both need to have a TikTok Business Center account set up, and your client will also need to have a TikTok Ad Account set up in their Business Center. 

 

This article will show you how to do it all!

Managing TikTok Posts

If you want to post on TikTok for your client, you’ll need to access their TikTok account. Right now, the only way your client can give you access to their TikTok account is to share their username and password with you.  

 

While this might not be the most secure way for someone else to manage your account, it’s currently the only option. It’s totally fine to be logged in to a TikTok account on multiple devices, and your client will have some options to control who is logged in if they check their privacy settings. 

 

The easiest way for them to see who is logged in to their account and manage them is to check the Settings and privacy on the account.  

 

Here’s how: 

 

  1. On the TikTok app, click the Profile icon in the bottom right 
  1. Click the 3 lines horizontal lines in the top right corner

 

  1. This should bring up Settings and privacy; select that option: 

 

  1. On this screen, choose Security and login:

 

  1. Select Manage devices: 

 

Here you can also add 2-step verification to add an extra level of security to your account (it means you’ll have to approve every time someone else tries to log in)

  1. In Manage devices, you will see a list of devices currently logged in to your account
  1. You can use the trash icon next to the device you want to remove from your account: 

 

  1. You will be sent a 6-digit security code to your email, which you need to enter to remove the device 

Managing TikTok Ads

Account Setup

 

If you want to manage TikTok ads for your client, there are a few things you need to set up first:

 

  • You both need to set up a TikTok Business Center account. 
  • Your client will also need to create a TikTok ad account which you then request access to. 

 

TikTok Business Center

Here’s how you and your client can set up your TikTok Business Center accounts: 

  1. Log in to the Business Center using your normal TikTok account details 
  1. You’ll be asked to fill in some details about your business (address, business activities etc.)
  1.  You will be directed to this screen asking if you authorise TikTok Business to access your TikTok account: 

 

If you click authorize, you will now have a Business Center account set up. 

 

Now it’s time for your client to set up their TikTok ad account within the TikTok Business Center. 

TikTok Ad Account

Here are the instructions your client can use to set up their TikTok ad account within the TikTok Business Center

 

  1. Under Assets –> Advertiser accounts, click on Add advertiser account

 

  1. You will get the option to add an advertiser account; click on Create new:

 

  1. You will then need to add some information about the business: 

 

  1. Click Next to submit this information and wait for TikTok to approve your new ad account

Clients: Invite Users to Your TikTok Ad Account 

 

Once you and your client have set up an account in the TikTok Business Center and created an advertiser account within it, you may both want to add some of your own team members. Your client can also invite you to access their ad account (or you can send a request – see below). Here’s how to do it:

How to invite team members

If you want to invite an internal team member to your TikTok Business Center, you can click on: 

 

  1. Users
  2. Members
  3. Invite Member
  4. Enter their email address 
  5. You then choose the level of access you want to give them 

 

How to invite agencies and freelancers 

Your client can add you as a partner their Business Center to give you access to their TikTok ad account (or if you prefer you can send them a request – see below). Here’s what they need to do: 

 

In the Business Center, click on: 

  1. Assets
  2. Advertiser accounts
  3. Partners
  4. Share with partner: 

 

  1. You will then see this screen where you’ll need to enter your partner’s Business Center ID: 

  1. Choose the level of access permission you want to give them and click send
  2. Your partner will receive an invitation that you’ve invited them to your TikTok Business Center account that looks like this:

 

Agencies: Request Access to TikTok Ad Accounts

 

If you already created an account in the TikTok Business Center, you can request access to your client’s ad account. Depending on the access level you get, you can manage ad account settings, spends, and permissions, set up new ads, or just have view access to see the ad analytics. 

 

Here’s how to request access to your partner or client’s ad account: 

 

  1. Log in to the TikTok Business Center (you can use your normal TikTok credentials once you have a Business Center account set up)
  2. Go to Assets on the right-hand side 
  3. Click on Advertiser Accounts
  4. You will see this screen where you select Request Access: 

 

  1. You will need to enter your partner or client’s advertiser account ID (you’ll need to ask them for it)

 

  1. You can then choose the access level you need and hit request
  2. Your client will receive an email that you need access and will be able to grant it to you 
  3. Remember that you need to have your own TikTok Business Center or access to your client’s Business Center if you want access to their ad account. 

Update July 2022!

 

There is now an extra step in the process if you want to actually run ads from your client’s ad account (the above steps are now to request view access only). 

 

To run ads via a client TikTok account, follow these steps: 

 

  1. Go to TikTok Accounts in your business centre:

 

  1. Click on Request Access and select the access level you need:

 

  1. You will be presented with a QR code which you need to share with your client so they can grant your access request:

 

  1. The client needs to open the QR code and scan it with their TikTok app:

 

  1. Voila! You now have access to run ads through their ad account!

Want your clients to give you access with 2-clicks?

  1. Log in to your YouTube Creator Studio account
  2. Click on Settings in the bottom right corner

 

  1. Choose Permissions, then Manage permissions

 

  1. If you manage permissions via your Google brand account, it will open a new window —> click on the blue box that says Manage permissions

  2. Log in to your Google account
  3. Click the person with the + button in the top right corner

 

  1. Type the email address of the person you want to add

  1. Under permissions in the YouTube Creator Studio, click on Invite in the top right-hand corner

 

  1. Follow the same process of adding the email and selecting permissions (you have more options when you do it directly from YouTube)

Agencies & Freelancers: How to request admin access for a YouTube channel

Are you an agency or freelancer who needs access to your client’s YouTube account? Then you will need to request admin access to manage their YouTube channel. 

 

Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to do this directly from YouTube. To ask for access to someone else’s YouTube channel, you’ll need to ask your client directly. They will then need to add you manually using the steps outlined above.

Google Analytics

 

Most online businesses use Google Analytics to track their website’s performance and gain insights about their users. If you aren’t using Google Analytics yet, set up an account already! 

 

But how do you request or grant access to Google Analytics for your team members, partners, or agency? 

 

We’ll break it down for you here, along with a quick hack (hint: Leadsie) that makes it easier than ever for agencies and clients to share access to Google Analytics accounts.

Agencies & Freelancers: How to Request Access to Google Analytics

There isn’t a way to request access to manage your clients’ Google Analytics accounts from Google Analytics ?. Your client has to do it from their end (unless you use Leadsie!)

 

Your client needs to figure out how to give you access, which email address is linked to your account, which accounts and which permissions to give you access to. This wastes a bunch of time with onboarding a new client. 

 

Leadsie solves this dilemma. You just need to share your Leadsie link with your client, and they can log in with their Google account and instantly grant the access you require to manage their account. 

 

Not only that, but you can also request access to Google Ads, Google Tag Manager, Google My Business and Facebook assets, all with the same link. ‍

 

Your onboarding process never looked so smooth!

 

‍Clients: How to Manage Access to Google Analytics

To give you access to their analytics account, your client needs to be an admin of the Google Analytics account. 

 

Here’s are the instructions you need to share with your client: 

 

  1.  Login to your Google Analytics account
  2. Click on Admin in the bottom left-hand corner

 

  1. Click on Access Management for the type of access you want to give. This will be either:
    1. Account Access Management which means someone can access, add or delete all the websites connected to your analytics. 
    2. Property Access Management (the one you’ll most likely use for your agency or partner) which means the person can set up integrations and tracking
    3. View Access Management is great for giving internal access 

 

  1. Click on the Blue + in the top right corner and select Add Users

 

  1. Enter the email address of the user you want to add. You can then select the permissions you want to give that user. They can be an admin, editor, analyst or viewer. 

 

  1. The person you want to give access to will receive an email with a link they can click on. They should have immediate access to the permissions you granted them. 

 

Leadsie: 2-Click Access to Google Analytics

With Leadsie, requesting access to your client’s GA account takes just a few clicks without the need to navigate through Google Analytics directly. You can even do it from your mobile device:

Google Ads

How to Get Access to Google Ad Accounts in 2022

If you have been hired as an agency or freelancer to take care of your client’s PPC campaigns, you’ll need to get access to their Google Ads Account. 

 

If you want to do this manually, there are two options:

 

  • You can send them an access request (you’ll need to know their account ID – not required if you use Leadsie) 
  • Your client can send you an invitation to access their account (and you may need to give them step-by-step instructions)

 

Spoiler alert: it’s much quicker and easier for everyone to just use a Leadsie link to automate sharing access to Google Analytics and request access to other assets like Facebook, Analytics and more at the same time. But if you want to do it the old-fashioned way, here’s how to get it done!

Shopify

Clients: How to Manage Access to Shopify

 

There are two types of access you can give via Shopify. You can either give staff permissions or collaborator permissions. There are some differences between the two types of access – staff can do a few things collaborators cannot, and collaborators do not count towards the limit of staff members on your plan. In general, if you are working with external agencies or freelancers, you may prefer to add them as collaborators.

 

You can add staff members yourself, but collaborators will need to send you an access request from their own account. 

How to give someone staff permissions to your Shopify store

Depending on their role in your business, others may need admin access to your Shopify store. There are certain permissions only the store owner can take, which include: 

 

  • Managing payment and billing information 
  • Changing price plans 
  • Changing the ownership of the store

 

If you grant someone staff permissions, they will be able to: 

  • Edit, delete, and export orders
  • Edit products and inventories 
  • Manage gift cards and discounts
  • Export customer profiles
  • Access reporting 
  • Manage marketing campaigns 

 

If you don’t need them to be able to do all of this, it may be better to give them collaborator access (see below).

 

Follow these steps to give someone staff permissions in your Shopify store: 

  1. Log in to your Shopify store admin page
  2. In the toolbar on the left-hand side click on Settings: 

  1. Choose Users and permissions 

 

  1. To add someone new, click on ‘Add staff’
  2. Add the staff member’s name and email address
  3. You can then choose the permissions you want to grant, if you want to grant all permissions, click “Select all” 
  4. Optional – You can also give access to your linked apps and channels (social media and your POS app)
  5. Once you’ve chosen the right permissions, click Send invite
  6. Your staff member will receive an email – they must follow the steps in the invitation to ‘create staff account’ or log in with their Shopify ID

 

Remember that invitations to add a staff member expire after 7 days. You will also have a maximum number of staff members you can add, depending on your plan.

How to give someone collaborator permissions to your Shopify store

If you work with an agency or freelancer, you may want to give them permissions in your store without making them a staff member (remember the number of staff members is limited depending on your plan). 

 

In this case, you can add them as a collaborator. They will need to request access through their own Shopify Partner Dashboard or by using the Shopify app. 

 

If you have set up a ‘request access code’ for security, you will need to share this with them before they are able to send you an access request. 

How to set up a Shopify request access code for collaborators

For security, you can set up a 4 digit request access code. This way, you will only receive genuine requests from people who are collaborating with your store. 

 

Here’s how to set up a request access code: 

 

  1. Head to Users and permissions
  2. Go to the Collaborators section
  3. Select Only people with a collaborator request code can request access 
  4. Your agency or freelancer will need to ask you for this code before they can send you an access request

 

Agencies & Freelancers – Request Collaborator Access to Shopify

 

To request access to a client’s site, you will need a Shopify Partner Dashboard. If you don’t have one yet, you can easily set up an account here by entering a few personal details.  

 

Once you have a Partner Dashboard, follow these steps to request access: 

 

  1. Login to the Shopify Partner Dashboard
  2. Head to Stores
  3. Click Add store

  1. You’ll be asked to Choose store type —> select Managed store
  2. You will then see this screen, where you add the URL for the store you want access to:

 

 

  1. If your client has set up a 4-digit collaborator code, you will need to enter it here (ask them for it)
  2. You can also choose the permissions you want access to (click select all if you want all permissions)
  3. You can include a personalised message and hit Save:

  1. Your client will receive an email and a notification on their Shopify homepage to tell them you’ve requested access. They can modify the permissions you request. 

 

If you manage assets for more than one Shopify store, you can see them all in the Stores tab of your Partner Dashboard. 

How to remove access to a client’s Shopify store

If you are no longer working with a client and they didn’t remove you as a collaborator, you can remove yourself from their store. 

 

  1. Head to the stores tab in your Partner Dashboard
  2. Find the store you want to leave
  3. Click Remove access —–> Remove store
