How To Edit Facebook Ads

Editing your Facebook ads can help you optimize your marketing strategies. This step-by-step guide will show you how to edit your Facebook ads.

Step 1: Access Facebook Ads Manager

The first step in editing your Facebook ad is to access your Ads Manager. You can do this by visiting

Step 2: Select the Campaign, Ad Set or Ad

Once in the Ads Manager, you’ll see a list of your current ad campaigns. To change a specific ad, you first need to drill down to it by clicking on the name of the campaign or ad set that it’s in.

Step 3: Click on ‘Edit’

Find the ad that you want to edit. Hover over the ad’s row and then click Edit.

Step 4: Make Your Changes

Once you’re in edit mode, you can make changes to the ad’s creative, audience, budget, or schedule. Be sure to save your changes when you’re done!

Step 5: Review Changes and Publish

After saving your changes, click Review and Publish to make your changes live.

Remember, any changes you make to your ad will restart the ad’s learning phase and may affect its performance, so it’s best to make edits sparingly.

Code to automate the process

If you’re looking to automate the editing process, you can use Facebook’s Marketing API. Here’s a simple code snippet that will help you understand how to update an ad using the API:

        from import Ad
        from facebook_business.api import FacebookAdsApi
        my_app_id = '<app_id>'
        my_app_secret = '<app_secret>'
        my_access_token = '<access_token>'
        FacebookAdsApi.init(my_app_id, my_app_secret, my_access_token)
        ad = Ad('<ad_id>')
   'Updated Ad Name',
            Ad.Field.creative: {'creative_id': '<creative_id>'},

In the code snippet above, replace <APP_ID>, <APP_SECRET>, <ACCESS_TOKEN>, <AD_ID> and <CREATIVE_ID> with your own values.

Managing your Facebook ads effectively can significantly boost your marketing efforts. With the steps outlined above, you can easily edit your Facebook ads whenever necessary. Remember, the key to successful advertisement is constant testing and optimization!
