How to Use Facebook’s Branded Content Tool
March 13, 2018

If you’re working with clients, chances are at some stage or another you’ll want to be able to leverage their customer testimonials or influencer marketing efforts.

In the past – businesses would ask influencers to post to their pages and then get access to the ad account via Business manager (making things really messy and FB wasn’t a fan)… and then Facebook rolled out the Branded Content tool!

Using this tool, businesses can gain real insights into the organic reach metrics of a post, share the post to their page, and put ad spend behind it (and retarget a custom audience of those that watched from ad spend).

I scoured the web for hours on instructions on how to use Facebook’s branded content tool but to no avail so wanted to put something together for you guys.

Here’s how it works.

Step #1:

The content creator will need to have access to the Branded Content tool. If they don’t they can apply using this link (Facebook will normally approve within an hour: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/1865970047013799)

Step #2:

The content creator should then go ahead and create their post as they normally would on their Page – except now, they’ll see a little handshake icon at the bottom.  If they select this they’ll then be able to tag your page or your client’s page into the post (will show up at “With – [Page Name]).

Step #3:

The Page that was tagged will receive a notification and can approve the tag.  You can also access any tagged branded content posts from your Page’s Insight tab (left hand column > Branded Content).

To run the post in an ad – at the ad level of your campaign select “Use Existing Post” > you will then see a brand new option called “Branded Content” and you approved post will show up here.

And that’s it – super simple yet super effective!
