How to Collect an Audience for a Viber Chatbot
You can grow your bot's audience organically (when users subscribe to your bot themselves) or by importing a file with users’ contact info.
We will talk about how a user can subscribe to a chatbot and how to import a file.
A user can subscribe to your bot if they follow a direct link to it. Subscribers are added to your bot audience by their Viber IDs, not their phone numbers.
Copy the link to your bot under its name. In the flow menu, you can also copy a link to launch a certain flow and share it with users.
A Viber link can only be opened on a device where the Viber app is installed. You can also generate a QR code to enable users to open a link using a camera. Read more: How to Launch a Bot via a Link or QR Code.
Every chatbot you create has an automatically generated bio link page you can customize to fit your business goals and use to grow an audience.

To import a file with users’ contact info, you need a CSV file with their unique
viber_id. Go to the "Audience" tab, and click Import to get it.
You can only import the data of users who were previously subscribed to your bot.
You can also download your existing subscribers’ contact info to your device in CSV format. To do this, click CSV.
