  • What are the "bot" countries I should avoid in 2021?

    Hey all, I'm fairly new to ads. I mainly use Toneden because it's easier. I was wondering what are the bot countries I should avoid targeting?

    Also, currently I'm running Toneden Playbooks Spotify growth so just Instagram story ads and I'm at like 6 cents a follower. Should I be worried they are bots? I heard that it would take a special kind of coding to get a bot to swipe up on a story, go to Spotify, and follow you on spotify (makes sense, like why would someone create a bot that can do that when you can just get fake followers or click farms) but I just wanted to make sure that I'm in the clear. Thanks!

    Do NOT advertise to these countries:
    India
    Morocco
    Tunisia
    Nicaragua
    Egypt
    Philippines
    El Salvador
    Italy

    If you want to be even more sure you aren't sending bots to Spotify, you can advertise only to these countries:
    Austria, Australia, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel, Iceland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Sweden, United States

    These are rich countries that also pay $0.0035 per stream or more. I have found it is better in terms of bot avoidance to advertise to them + you can get really cheap conversions with a good creative and a few days of facebook's optimisation

      solid list. I’ve done just as well in running ads to Italy as I did with the rest of Europe. I would ad Algeria to the list though. The Philippines and El Salvador I was getting around 6 listeners per 10 conversions which was not great but better than India and Northern Africa.

        Thanks for the list! I appreciate it. I'm targeting those countries now, but also wondering if I should include Canada?

            Are you sure they are all bots, what if I actually want to target some of these? Is it possible to have real listeners form these as well?

              It is possible of course! But trust me, the quality of your listeners is more important than the quantity

                You are just taking unnecessary risk if you target them
