Rephrased: While running Facebook ads for clients can lead to profits, digital marketers and agencies often face challenges in determining how to charge for this service. To aid in managing the financial aspect of your marketing business, we have created a guide on how to properly charge clients for Facebook ads, as outlined in this blog post.

Choose a Pricing Model

The first step in charging your clients for Facebook ads is to choose a pricing model. The common pricing models are:

  • Percentage of Ad Spend: This is the most common way agencies charge for Facebook ads. The agency takes a given percentage of the total ad spend. Usually, this percentage ranges between 10% and 20%.
  • Flat Fee: Some agencies prefer to charge a flat fee. This fee could be based on the size of the client’s business, the complexity of the campaign, or simply the amount of work the agency has to do.
  • Performance-Based: In this model, the agency gets paid based on the performance of the ads. For instance, you might charge based on the number of leads, clicks, or conversions the ads generate.

Estimate Your Time and Effort

In order to set a reasonable price, you need to estimate how much time and effort will go into managing the Facebook ad campaigns. Consider factors such as campaign setup, ad creation, monitoring and adjusting bids, weekly reporting and communication with the client.

Factor in Your Costs

Don’t forget to calculate your own costs, such as any advertising tools you use, overhead costs, and the cost of any staff who will be working on the campaigns. This will help in establishing a baseline for what you need to charge to cover your costs and make a profit.

Communicate Your Pricing Clearly

It’s important to be transparent and clear with your clients about your pricing. Ensure they understand what they’re paying for and how you’ve arrived at your rate. You might find it helpful to create a detailed proposal or contract that outlines the services you’ll provide, the cost, and the expected results.


Charging clients for Facebook ads doesn’t need to be a complex process. By choosing a pricing model that reflects the value you offer, accurately estimating your time and costs, and communicating clearly with your clients, you can set your business up for success.
