Stories haben die Instagram-Community im Sturm erobert. Das direkt von Snapchat kopierte Feature versprach von vornherein ein Erfolg zu werden, war es doch bereits auch bei den Usern der Konkurrenz sehr gefragt. Das Potential ist nicht eben gering, bei der hohen Anzahl an täglichen Usern. Allein 150 Millionen Nutzer schauen sich täglich Stories an, wobei ein Drittel der angesehenen Stories Markeninhalte sind. Daher rollt Instagram ab sofort Anzeigen in den Stories für Werbetreibende aus. So sollen Unternehmen die Möglichkeit erhalten, Usern ganze Geschichten in Vollbild als Video, Bild oder Gif zu präsentieren und bekommen gleichzeitig auch erweiterte Funktionen für die Insights, die Unternehmensprofile innerhalb der App direkt einsehen können. In den Insights lassen sich Daten zu
Die Bezahlung erfolgt im Regelfall pro Beitrag. Man muss seinem Partner im Voraus mitteilen, wie groß die persönliche Reichweite ist und wie viele Likes und Kommentare dieser erwarten kann. Diese Daten beeinflussen nämlich maßgeblich die Höhe der Vergütung. Hier ist es hilfreich, sein Instagram Profil zum Business Profil hochzustufen, da einem so Instagram Statistiken zur Verfügung stehen. Diese können nützlich für Verhandlungen sein.
Das Gleiche gilt für den Fall, wenn Du Anzeigen in den Ferien aufgeben willst. Diese kosten im direkten Vergleich mehr als Werbeanzeigen, die Du an normalen Arbeitstagen schaltest. Du kannst die durchschnittlichen Kosten für Instagram Werbung senken, wenn Du der Plattform erlaubst, dass Du Deine Anzeigen auch in weiteren Netzwerken platziert. Des Weiteren solltest Du in regelmäßigen Abständen Deine Anzeigen optimieren, denn dadurch kannst Du die Kosten senken.
A Direct Message on Instagram is only slightly better. It can get lost in the mix of other DMs, and it’s often a crap shoot as to whether they will even read it since if they don’t follow you on Instagram, your DM will show up as a “message request” in their inbox. These are often just ignored. However, Influencers on the micro-level are more likely to check these DMs so for those with smaller followings, it’s worth a shot.
Neben Hashtags wie #Werbung oder #Anzeige besteht auch die Möglichkeit, in eigenen Worten darauf hinzuweisen, dass es sich um eine Kooperation handelt. Dies muss dann aber in aller Deutlichkeit geschehen. Dr. Thomas Schwenke schlägt in seinem Gastbeitrag auf Socialhub Varianten wie „Dieser Beitrag ist mit finanzieller Unterstützung von X entstanden“ oder „X hat das Produkt kostenlos gestellt“ vor. Es muss deutlich werden, dass der Influencer für die Kooperation in irgendeiner Form entlohnt wurde.
Mit diesen Werbeanzeigen kannst Du Deinen Feed-Content auf Instagram Stories deutlich aufwerten. Das Besondere an den speziellen Anzeigen ist, dass Deine Bilder oder Videos den kompletten Bildschirm einnehmen. Die Story Ads bestehen aus Deinem Benutzernamen, dem Hinweis, einem Foto oder Video und aus einer optionalen Call-to-Action. Einen Beschreibungstext kannst Du nicht hinzufügen. Durch die Story Ads verbindest Du Dich täglich mit den über 300 Millionen Nutzern der Instagram Stories. Instagram empfiehlt für die Story Ads eine Auflösung von 1.080 x 1.920 Pixel und beschränkt die Maximalgröße von Videos auf 4 GB und Bildern auf 30 MB.
As for Instagram, having a business account makes it even easier for brands to contact you but I would personally shy away from switching since there’s a lot of whisper in the blogging world that Instagram will soon make business accounts pay to get their content seen by anyone. If you’re interested in reading more of my thoughts, check out my Instagram growth blog post – point #10).
Next, on your Facebook page, select Shop > Add Product. Here you can add product images as well as the name, price, description, and the URL for the product page or checkout page. Don’t skimp on the description here, as these are the details your audience will see on Instagram when they tap for more information on the product. The more information you provide, the more likely Instagrammers will click through to your site and make a purchase.
Genius doesn’t come from stagnation and the thing I respect about QuickSprout is that you’re willing to actually test things and then report back so we don’t have to. As much as we love to play upstanding citizen, it’s no secret that sex sells… especially on a visual platform like instagram. I think it’s very interesting and controversial that you explored its “value” in branding.
When the giveaway ends and it’s time to send out your product to the winner, make sure you communicate directly with the winner themselves and try to get some additional marketing goodwill from this. You can ask the winner to post about their winning on their own social media pages so that their friends and family learn about your brand. You can also incentivize the winner to refer friends and family by providing them with additional discounts for doing so. If you’re not keen on giving away your product for free you could also host a contest that allows the winner to purchase your product but at a significant, one-time discount.
A landing page is often used to collect email addresses and sell products, but you could create a landing page containing numerous links to direct your IG traffic. Alternatively, you can use IG-centric apps that provide templates to feature various links, for example, LinkTree and Lnk.Bio. Their goals are to solve the one-link Insta dilemma. LinkTree states, “You only get one chance to link in Instagram. Make it do more.” Lnk.Bio reads, “Multiple links for your Instagram bio, the new way to improve your Instagram experience.” Both tools are easy to set up. You just connect your IG account, pick a template, add links, and you’re ready. LinkTree has a free and pro plan. Lnk.Bio has four plans including free, monthly, and lifetime. Both platforms provide basic analytics.
Wer sich als "Werbefläche" kaufen lässt, der muss/sollte dies auch als "Branded Content" kennzeichnen. Da der Hashtag #ad i.d.R. nicht ausreicht, bietet Instagram mittlerweile eine bessere Kennzeichnungsmöglichkeit an. Wie du deinen Content als Branded Content kennzeichnest, findest du z.B. hier. Damit soll das Geld verdienen mit Instagram über Werbung endlich aus der Grauzone geholt und zu einem ganz normalen Geschäftsmodell gemacht werden.
Brands like to see an example of the type of post you would create for them so make sure you have some samples posted. If you want to do reviews, review some of your favourite products (even if they’re not sponsored by the brand). If you want fashion brands to give you clothing for outfits posts, make sure you have lots of outfit posts with clothes you already own. If you want to get a hotel to comp your stay as a travel blogger, have posts from previous trips that highlight the hotel you stayed at (even if you paid for it yourself). Brands want to feel confident that the work you provide for them will be in line with their marketing goals and what better way to show them than with some samples of your previous work.

If all of this has convinced you that you want to start as an affiliate influencer on Instagram, or if you’re a brand and you want to recruit some influencers on an affiliate basis remember some of the key points - make sure that your Instagram profile stands out from the rest, work on developing good relationships with the people you want to work with and make sure you have a strategy and clear expectations that work for you both. This way neither of you will be disappointed and you should be on your way to creating more revenue.

British celebrity chef and restaurateur, Jamie Oliver has over 6.2 million followers on Instagram, making him one of the most popular food influencers. Jamie Oliver is popular for his chain of restaurants, his TV shows, and his cookbooks. His Instagram is full of delicious-looking pictures of food as well as some occasional personal photographs that he adds.
Whilst most influencer networks focus on social media, there are some that also have heavy focus on blog. Social Fabric is the only blog influencer platform I have experience with and their rates are fixed. This was great in the beginning as I actually got a few blog gigs that paid a little more than what brands who e-mailed me were offering. If I get the chance to research more in depth which platforms do blog and how they pay, I’ll make sure to update this post.

Not too long ago, Instagram added a “story” function to their platform to compete with Snapchat. It has since exploded in popularity and continues to keep thousands of people glued to their phones on a daily basis. Why not take advantage of this feature with the Instagram influencers in your affiliate program? Story posts take minimum effort and there’s a good chance that the influencer will be happy to throw some of these in for you for free if you’re already running a campaign with them.
Hello, I am very new to Shopify and am looking for ways to promote my site. Love the idea of IG influencers. I already have an IG account which I opened so I could hear from my Grandchildren (really do not know how to use it) , can I open a second account strictly for a business? I have been on the site and cannot find any information about opening a second account. Thanks for any advice and this is wonderful information that is being shared on this blog.
Pro Tipp: Mit deinen Fingern kannst du die Größe des Hashtag-Stickers ändern. Positioniere mithilfe dieser Möglichkeit die Sticker anschaulich in einem bestimmten Winkel passend zum Foto. So stellst du sicher, dass die Tags nicht stören. Trotzdem lässt du dir aber dennoch nicht die Möglichkeit entgehen, durch Hashtags deine Reichweite zu erhöhen. Um dennoch viele Tags in der Story zu verwenden, aber die Zuschauer nicht vom Inhalt abzulenken, kannst du bis zu zehn Hashtags integrieren, die aber hinter einem Emoji verstecken. OnlineMarketing.de-Bürohund Philly zeigt, wie’s geht:
Bei Instagram entdeckt man manchmal Hashtags wie #ad oder #sponsored. Doch laut der Rechtsprechung reicht das nicht aus. Einen Medieninhalt mit dem Hinweis „Sponsored“ oder „Sponsored by“ zu versehen, ist nach Urteilen des Bundesgerichtshofs (Urteil vom 06.02.2014, I ZR 2/11) und des Landgerichts München (Urteil vom 31.07.2015 – 4 HK O 21172/14) nicht zu empfehlen. Die Richter argumentieren damit, dass die englischsprachigen Begriffe nicht jedem geläufig sind. Einige Anwälte, zum Beispiel Nina Diercks im UPLOAD Magazin, sehen jedoch die Möglichkeit, dass sich diese Situation in Zukunft ändert, weil die Bezeichnung auf Instagram sehr häufig verwendet wird. Bis dahin gilt jedoch: Lieber auf Nummer sicher gehen.

You can promote your latest products, acquire new customers, or even communicate directly with your existing ones. Instagram has reached 800 million monthly active users. According to KISSmetrics, 70% of Instagram users have already looked up various brands on the platform and actually want to consume their content. This is exactly why marketing on Instagram can be so effective for your ecommerce business.


Hi Breno! Thanks for reading my post. How to create engaging content for influencers is a great idea for a post all on its own! It’s a tough line to walk because, of course, you want your post to translate to sales, but you also don’t want people to immediately shut off and scroll past you because they know your post is an ad. Thus, my short answer would be to work on including some sort of call to action within the photo. Make the photo engaging and encourage people to like and/or comment. Perhaps some sort of contest? Keep us posted on how it goes and what you decide to do. Cheers!
I look forward to seeing if/how this $57k investment pays off for you. It’s a pretty interesting experiment to say the least. I have the same dilemma with the Instagram account I just created for my bow tie company, Chringle & Co. I see how the fashion accounts that get tons of attention operate, but I’m not flashy enough to organize a daily photo shoot to showcase my #details. Dah well, hopefully I can use the approach you have and work with other Instagram models and fashion-forward individuals in the coming months.
If you are just getting started, it is a perfectly fine strategy to come up with special offers for influencers. One such offer could be giving them 5% (or some other number) lifetime commissions on sales made by affiliates who sign up due to them. Another idea could be to consider relaxing some of the terms for followers of these early influencers. Also, you could consider offering exclusive affiliate tools to select influencers.
Since Instagram started in 2010, influencers have flocked to the platform to increase their audience, traffic, followers and engagement. With 29% of Instagram’s top posts coming from influencers or brand ambassadors, they are dominating the game when it comes to user generated content, and with statistics showing that Instagram has over 700 million monthly users it is now over twice the size of twitter. This isn’t something that should be ignored, especially for brands when they are looking at Instagram affiliate marketing strategies.
Many marketers use automated email and drip sequences to introduce affiliate products and services to their subscribers. I use an auto-response sequence through MailerLite, a top-rated email marketing service and a fantastic alternative to MailChimp. You could send new subscribers three to five automated emails over a period of weeks/months and include affiliate links where applicable. Additionally, I see many marketers using landing page tools like Leadpages and Instapage to get subscribers and sales.
Auf Instagram folgen 70 Prozent der Nutzer einem Unternehmen. Da die Markeninhalte in den Stories sich bereits jetzt schon einer ansehnlichen Beliebtheit erfreuen und Unternehmen den Bereich seit der Einführung erfolgreich als essentiellen Bestandteil ihrer Kommunikation nutzen, ist der Einsatz von Anzeigen nur folgerichtig, um die User zielgerichtet erreichen zu können. „Zahlreiche Marken haben Stories in den letzten Monaten als immersives Format in ihrer Kommunikation eingesetzt und sehen hohes Engagement in ihrer Zielgruppe – das zeigt sich auch darin, dass 70% der Menschen sich Stories mit eingeschaltetem Ton ansehen. Mit Anzeigen in Stories ermöglichen wir es Unternehmen nun, die Beziehung zu ihren Kunden auf kreative Art und Weise zu intensivieren und ich bin gespannt, wie deutsche Marken dieses neue Format einsetzen werden“, so Nadine Neubauer, Brand Development Lead Instagram (Central Europe).

I have to agree with @Beatrix Willius…maybe I missed the whole point of this experiment. I have nothing against beautiful women promoting anything. (I’m a huge UFC fan) but based on your experiment I have to assume you’re only interested in getting leads from wealthy male entrepreneurs? There are quite a few of us females with lots of cash to invest as well.
