How to add your Custom Audience to a campaign


To add your newly created Custom Audience to a campaign follow these steps:

Go to Facebook Ads Manager, and at the Ad Sets level of your campaign, select the Ad Set you would like to add your Custom Audience to and then click the Edit button.

Alternatively, you can create a brand new Ad Set.

An edit window will open from the right-hand side allowing you to change the name of your Ad Set to match your new Custom Audience. Then scroll down to the "Audience" section.

In the “Audience” section, you can search the Custom Audiences field for the Custom Audience you want to use.
