8 Facebook Ads Reporting Tools For Quicker & Better Reports

To make the most of your Facebook advertising budgets, you need to have the right metrics and intelligence to optimise your campaigns for better performance and ROI.

The Facebook Ads Manager alone often isn't good enough for sharing easily digestable reports.

In this article, I’ll introduce you to 8 Facebook ad reporting tools that’ll allow you to save time on reporting, and increase the effectiveness of your Facebook advertising budgets.

Why would you need a Facebook ads reporting tool?

Facebook already has its own built-in ads manager, with which you can create ad campaigns and see results for all your Facebook ad sets. Although it allows you to view how all your campaigns are doing, Facebook ad manager has its limitations.

There can be several benefits to having a separate reporting tool:

1. Format. The default reporting dashboard isn't super easy to digest. The tools in this list generally allow for easier report building, which lets you pick & choose which metrics are important, and how exactly to display them.

2. Shareability. It isn't easy to share Facebook ads reports from the Ads Manager. Many tools here, like DashThis for example, allow for shareable dashboard links & other tools to make things quicker & easier.

3. White labelling. For agencies & freelancers, brandable reports look more professional. There's no built-in white label features in the Ads Manager.

4. Bugs & support. Facebook Ads Manager is renowned for having terrible support, and occasional bugs too. Third party tools have smaller dedicated teams that can actually help you out when needed.
