Set up Facebook ads

Facebook ads allow you to tell people about your business or products to people targeted by age, gender and location. Facebook ads are different than boosted posts.

When you buy Facebook ads, you pay for them through your Facebook ad account. Read the Facebook Advertising Policies before creating an ad.

Note: Facebook ads are only available for Websites + Marketing Premium and Commerce plans and Digital Marketing Suite.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Open your site.
    • For Websites + Marketing: Scroll to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to the site you want to open.
    • For Digital Marketing Suite: Scroll to Online Marketing and select Manage next to the account you want to open.
  3. Open your Social Media Marketing page.
    • For Websites + Marketing: From the Dashboard, select Marketing > Digital Ads.
    • For Digital Marketing Suite: From the Dashboard, select Digital Ads.
  4. If you haven't already, connect your site to Facebook. Read more about how your GoDaddy and Facebook Business Manager accounts work and basic troubleshooting tips.
  5. Select Create My Ad.
  6. Follow the steps to choose the goal of the ad, where you want the ad to run, the ad’s content, and who you want to see your ad. You will also choose how much you want to spend over how many days.
  7. Since you pay Facebook for ads and boosted posts, your Facebook payment method is separate from payments you have set up with GoDaddy.
    • Select Grant Access to allow Facebook to complete payment.
    • Select Set up if this is your first time or use the Edit pencil if you want to change an existing Facebook payment.
  8. When you’re finished, select Launch My Ad.

Note: You may be prompted during the process to add or verify your email in Facebook Business Manager before you can boost posts or advertise. You may also be prompted to enable two-factor authentication on your Facebook page. This is a measure required by Facebook to protect your business.

You’re all set. Facebook reviews every ad to make sure it meets their advertising guidelines. After they’ve approved it, your ad will start showing up.
