This article will walk you through how to:
Create a Facebook Business

This is an important step for both boosting a post from Deck and exporting targets from Deck into Facebook as a custom audience.
To create a Business on Facebook go to business.facebook.com/overview. It will prompt you to “Create Your Business Manager Account.” You will need to have the following information:
Your Business and Account Name
Your Active Business Email
Follow the instructions under “Create an Account”
Then click submit and your Business will be ready to go!
Next, you’ll need to add your Page to your Business. Before you can add your Page to your Business you will need to meet these conditions:
You’ve been an admin of your Page for at least 7 days
Your Page isn’t owned by another person or Business
In Business Manager (business.facebook.com), go to “Business Settings.”
Click "Settings" on the right hand navigation bar
Click "Additional Business Settings"
Then on the Business Settings page, click "Pages" under "Accounts" on the right hand navigation bar
Then click Pages and click “+ Add." It will give you three choices:
Add a Page
Request access to a Page
Create a New Page
Select "Add a Page." You’ll need to add your Facebook Page name or the Facebook URL of your Page.
You can find out more information about adding a Page here.
Finally, you will need to make sure that your ad account is linked to your Business.
To be able to add the ad account to your Business, you need to be:
the owner of the ad account
an admin of the Business
You will not be able to add the ad account if it is owned by a different Business.
To link your ad account, go to your Business and go to the settings, go to “Ad Accounts” and click “+ Add”
When you click the “+ Add” button, it will give you three choices:
Add an ad account
Request access to an ad account
Create an ad account
Select “Add an ad account” to link your ad account to the Business or “Create an ad account” if you need to create an ad account.
You can find out more information about adding an ad account to your Business here.
If you have successfully linked your Page and ad account, your Business Manager should look similar to this.
Now you have a Business that is linked to your Page and ad account and will be able to successfully export an audience from Deck into Facebook!
