Marketers, SMMs and group administrators have come across advertising placements in public more than once. Previously, you had to sit with a calculator and calculate the cost per subscriber (CPA), manually cross them to find out the number of subscriptions.

A couple of hours were spent collecting statistics for one public, and if there were several advertisements, then it was almost impossible to calculate the data.

AdSpoiler is a service that automatically collects and calculates the effectiveness of advertising placements in VK groups, shows the statistics of your group and competitors.

  • Public audience statistics (activity, age, geo, gender);
  • Tracking the effectiveness and advertising creatives of competitors;

How is advertising effectiveness measured?

Public advertising is calculated using two algorithms: Intersection and AdSpoiler (developed by the service team).

Algorithm “Intersection”

Every 3 minutes, Adspoiler scans publics and looks for advertising posts. When the service sees an ad, it captures the subscribers of the group that bought the ad. Once an hour, the number of subscribers is scanned. If new users have subscribed to the public, then they are recorded in the table. Statistics are collected 24 hours (the period of activity of an advertising post.

Algorithm “AdSpoiler”

AdSpoiler counts only unique users from a site group. It filters out those who are subscribed to several publics with active advertising.
