How To Add Ads To Facebook Videos

Ever thought about making money from your Facebook videos and boosting your earnings? Great news – inserting ads into your Facebook videos is simpler than it seems. In this guide, I’ll take you through the steps to add ads to your Facebook videos, one at a time.

Step 1: Become Eligible for Monetization

Before you can start adding ads to your Facebook videos, you need to meet the eligibility criteria for monetization. Facebook requires you to:

  • Have at least 10,000 followers on your Facebook page
  • Have at least 30,000 one-minute views on videos that are at least three minutes long in the past 60 days

If you meet these requirements, congratulations! You are ready to move on to the next step.

Step 2: Enable Monetization

Once you are eligible for monetization, you need to enable it on your Facebook page. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Facebook page
  2. Click on “Settings” in the top-right corner
  3. Select “Monetization” from the left-hand menu
  4. Click on “Get Started” and follow the prompts to enable monetization

Enabling monetization will allow you to start earning money from ads on your Facebook videos.

Step 3: Create Video Ad Breaks

After enabling monetization, you need to create video ad breaks within your videos. Video ad breaks are short ads that appear during a video. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Go to your Facebook Creator Studio
  2. Click on “Monetization” in the left-hand menu
  3. Select “Video Ad Breaks”
  4. Choose the video you want to add ad breaks to
  5. Decide where you want the ad breaks to appear and click on “Add Ad Breaks”
  6. Facebook will automatically insert the ad breaks at the chosen locations in your video

It’s important to note that not every video is eligible for ad breaks. Facebook has specific guidelines and policies on the type of content that can have ad breaks.

Step 4: Track Your Earnings

Once you have enabled video ad breaks, you can track your earnings through the Facebook Creator Studio. This will show you how much money you are earning from the ads on your videos.

Keep in mind that the amount of money you earn from ads will vary based on factors such as the number of views, the length of the video, and the engagement of your audience.


Adding ads to your Facebook videos can be a great way to monetize your content and generate an additional stream of income. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can become eligible for monetization, enable video ad breaks, and track your earnings. So, what are you waiting for?
