GoHighLevel Facebook Ads: Pre-Requisites

In order to successfully integrate GoHighLevel with Facebook ads, there are several elements that must be in place beforehand:

  1. The person integrating Facebook with GoHighLevel must have access to the Facebook page that is being used to create the ads.
  2. The same user must own both the page and the ad account. The user accounts for these can not be different from each other.
  3. The user who is performing the integration process must have admin permissions for the Facebook page and must also have Lead Access permissions within the ad account.
  4. The Facebook page needs to be verified to ensure it is connected to the correct ad account. This can be done via the “Ad Account” settings.
  5. Check to see if lead access is enabled. If it isn’t, go into the Leads Access Manager, search for LeadConnector, and enable it. (LeadConnector is what GoHighLevel calls its integration app for social media.)
  6. If the Facebook page is in the New Pages Experience, ensure the person integrating the Facebook page to GoHighLevel has admin or employee-level access.
