How to Create the Spotify Growth Playbook Campaign

A step-by-step walkthrough on how to create a Spotify Growth Playbook Campaign in ToneDen.

Before You Get Started

We highly recommend setting up your own domain to run the Spotify Growth Playbook for best results. Otherwise, campaigns will default to link click optimization. Once you've connected your domain to ToneDen, our system will automatically use your new custom subdomain to run these campaigns. You can learn how to set one up in the following guide:

Before You Get Started

We highly recommend creating a video formatted for Instagram Stories Ads prior to making your Spotify Growth Playbook campaign. You can learn best practices & how to make the ad creative in the following guide:

Step 1: Select Accounts

The first step is to choose the Facebook advertising account you want the campaign to be created under in the "Select a Facebook Advertising Account" section.
How to complete the "Select Accounts" step.
The second step is to choose a Facebook Page & Instagram Account to post as.
The ads in the Spotify Growth Playbook campaign will ONLY appear in Instagram Stories. The reason why you have to choose a Facebook Page is because Instagram is owned by Facebook.
Please remember to link your Instagram Account to your Facebook Page if you haven't yet:
The last step is to choose a Facebook Pixel (optional).
This option will only appear if the Facebook Advertising Account you've selected has more than one Facebook Pixel attached to it.
If your Facebook Advertising Account only uses one pixel, we will automatically use that pixel in your ad campaign.

Step 2: Set Schedule

The first step is to select a campaign start date on the calendar in the "When do you want your ad campaign to start section."

The second step is to then select a start time for your campaign.
Leave the "Run my ad campaign continuously" checked if you want your campaign to run continuously (recommended).
If you do not want your campaign to run continuously, you can uncheck the "Run my ad campaign continuously" button.
From there, you would "select an end date" and "select an end time" for your campaign.

We will check if the recommended artists in the "Fans Also Like" section of your selected artists appear as interests and then add them into the "Generated Interests" section.
The third step is to add and proofread interests in the "Generated Interests" section. The interests in the "Generated Interests" section are what is targeted on Instagram.
Sometimes a less relevant interest appears. Please double check your interests to make sure they are all relevant to your audience.
You can also add in more interests by clicking on the "Generated Interests" box and typing in your own.
We also provide more recommendations when you click on the arrow dropdown to the right of the "Generated Interests" field.
The last step is to choose your Spotify Markets in the "Select Spotify Markets" step.
