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).

Thank you for this amazing post! It has definitely put my mind into set and changed a lot about the way I will post and do things on Instagram. Such a great help! And I did DM you on Instagram. Hoping to hear from you, had a few questions for you there! And another thing…. I love your instagram and blog posts. I have been following for a while now and definitely you are a huge influencer! Thanks again 🙂
If you’re not getting the types of collaborations you’re hoping for through e-mails alone, you can be proactive and reach out to brands yourselves. Do a little google sleuthing to find their PR / media contact. Sometimes it’s as easy as a media enquiries e-mail address on the brand’s contact page, but more often than not brands make you work for it. I usually google “pr / media / press [at ] company [dot ] com” to see if the e-mail address shows up and will sometimes get lucky this way. Sometimes I’ll comment on a brand’s latest Instagram post with a note saying I sent them a DM (since brand accounts are usually handled by their social media manager, who either also handles collaborations or works closely with the PR department that does). Sometimes I get a media contact through a blogger friend. There are lots of ways to find the right e-mail address and, if all else fails, you can always try contacting the general help desk to see if they’re able to give you the right contact.
Include relevant information about the photograph and ask a question to your followers. This is important to drive engagement to your posts and it gives people the information they are looking for. Geo-tagging can help when customers want to find out where something is. A blogger utilising geo-tagging might include where they are in the photograph, while brands should geo-tag store locations to make it easier for people to find.
Wichtig ist dabei noch, dass man die Angabe „* = Affiliatelinks/Werbelinks“ sowohl in der Desktop-Version, als auch in der mobilen Version der Website finden kann. Die Sidebar wird ja in der Regel ausgeblendet in der mobilen Ansicht. Deshalb habe ich diesen Punkt in der mobile Navigation aufgenommen. Damit ist diese Erklärung nicht sofort sichtbar, aber immerhin schnell auffindbar.
Mit den Carousel Ads verleihst Du Deinen Werbekampagnen noch mehr Tiefe. Die Nutzer können durch Wischen in einer einzelnen Anzeige noch zusätzliche Bilder oder Videos sehen. Du kannst maximal 10 Bilder oder Videos in einer einzigen Werbeanzeige darstellen. Die Carousel Ads erscheinen wie die Fotos und Bilder zwischen den normalen Beiträgen auf Instagram. Die Anzeigen bestehen aus Deinem Benutzernamen, dem “Gesponsert-Hinweis”, einem Text und einer Call-to-Action. Unterhalb der Videos oder Bilder befinden sich kleine Punkte und diese machen die Nutzer von Instagram darauf aufmerksam, dass sie durch ein Wischen weitere Inhalte sehen können.
Das Posten von UGC ist deshalb so relevant, da Kunden sieben Mal häufiger von einer Marke kaufen, die andere Verbraucher vorschlagen. Wenn du auf deinem Account glückliche Konsumenten deines Produkts zeigen kannst, werden sich mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit mehr Menschen dafür entscheiden. Dies wird auch mit ein Grund dafür sein, weshalb Influencer-Marketing bei Instagram einen fruchtbaren Boden gefunden hat.
First, you must recognize that there are much better social media networks than Instagram for affiliate marketing, for example, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Therefore, you might abandon IG altogether. Secondly, if you want to play on IG, you must accept its limitations and focus on what is available (the bio section). Four strategies accompany the all-important bio link.
Natürlich solltest du auch auf deinem Twitter-Account oder anderen sozialen Medien, aber vor allem auf deiner Website auf deine neue Präsenz auf Instagram aufmerksam machen. Vielleicht bist du auf anderen Plattformen schon länger vertreten und hast dort ein großes Publikum gefunden. Deshalb lasse deine Follower um dein neues Profil bei Instagram wissen. Denn je einfacher du es deiner Zielgruppe machst, dich zu finden, umso mehr Personen werden dir folgen. Stelle also sicher, dass User auf dein Profil aufmerksam werden.
The Amazon Influencer Program is an extension to the existing online Associates program for social media influencers. With the Influencer Program, you get your own page on Amazon with a URL to showcase the products you recommend to your followers. This gives you an additional way to direct traffic to Amazon, which is especially useful where hyperlinking isn't possible (e.g. Instagram captions or video content.) Learn more.
Influencer networks are companies that connect bloggers and influencers with brands. Some will have you apply for campaigns yourself while others will contact you if they have a brand who’s interested in you. For those networks where you apply yourself, they’ll have either a web platform or a phone app where you go in and look at all of the open campaigns and apply to those that interest you. Sometimes they’ll let you come up with a pitch that includes a rate you decide on yourself, other times it will be a fixed rate and you can decide if this amount is worth the effort of applying for and then, if you get picked, doing the work involved. Influencer networks can be a great tool, especially when you’re first starting out and want the chance to work with some bigger brands that might not yet have you on their radar.
Deine Zielgruppe und der Wettbewerb spielen bei den Kosten für Instagram Werbung ebenfalls eine Rolle. Die Kosten für eine Werbeanzeige auf der Plattform Instagram werden höher, wenn es andere Unternehmen gibt, die mit Dir um die gleiche Zielgruppe konkurrieren. Findest Du eine Nische, sinken die Kosten für die Instagram Werbung. Es macht definitiv einen großen Unterschied im Hinblick auf die Kosten, zu welcher Jahreszeit Du eine Werbeanzeige auf Instagram schaltest. Gibst Du Werbeanzeigen vor Weihnachten oder vor Ostern auf, kämpfst Du mit viel mehr Unternehmen um die begrenzt verfügbaren Werbeflächen. Aufgrund dessen steigen die Preise für die Instagram Werbung.
Tip #3 is to consistently post valuable content to your followers. Now valuable content will be different in each niche, but a good rule of thumb is to post inspiring, helpful, informative or motivational pictures and videos at least once a day. If you’re struggling to come with ideas on what to post just go look at what other influencers in your niche are posting, and post similar content. Of course you’ll want to make it unique, but looking at other accounts is a good way to figure out what type of posts the people in your niche respond to the most. An important thing for to mention here is to avoid making your account a pitch fest. Of course your goal is to get people to click the links in your bio, but if you make every other post about an offer or a link all your going to do is piss people off, and ultimately lose followers. I’ve found that one promotional post per week is the sweet spot to not piss off your followers, but make sure they know you have an offer out there.
Instagram – Instagram excels with brand exposure, but the UI makes it less likely that followers will click to purchase. The scrolling style of viewing posts as well as the link only being available in the bio lends itself to quick Likes and fewer clicks. However, I have seen some Instagram influencers succeed using Instagram Stories.Instagram Stories provide the personal one on one engagement feel that lends itself to conversions as well as an explanation on how followers can click on the affiliate link.
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.

Before you can even begin to think about monetizing your blog or social media, you’ll need to grow your online presence. Get readers to your blog and followers to your social media accounts. I wrote up a detailed post on how to start and grow a lifestyle blog here and how to grow your Instagram account here. If you’re looking at a different type of blog or a different social media platform, a lot of what I wrote would probably still apply but I would also google around to see the best ways to grow a blog in your niche and any other social media accounts you’re focusing on.
I’m also going to adjust the strategy by stopping the prizes. I will also post more personalizd images on my profile such as of my family and leverage female and lifestyle accounts to promote me. For example, I may do a video Skype session with a female model, create a screenshot of it, and have her post it on her Instagram profile, with a mention of me giving her business or marketing advice. 

And another big reason? Cost. Most of the big Influencers work solely on a pay-per-post model, where companies have to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single Instagram post. Sure, maybe you’re Pepsi and you have that sort of spend. But we’re assuming most of you a) don’t want to spend anywhere near that much, and b) want to work with Influencers on a traditional affiliate marketing model (commission on sale). It goes without saying, it’s much more likely that micro-influencers will work on this model.

Seit Mitte 2016 kann das Nutzerprofil auf Instagram in einen Business-Account umgewandelt werden. Mit einem geschäftlichen Profil können die Nutzer auf spezielle Statistiken zugreifen, diverse Kontaktmöglichkeiten hinzufügen und können Social Media Werbung direkt in der mobilen Anwendung erstellen. Dadurch eignet sich Instagram bestens für Marketing-Maßnahmen. Auf Instagram Werbung schalten können die Nutzer ohne einen großen Aufwand. Die Werbung erscheint zwischen den einzelnen Beiträgen in Form von Videos oder Fotos und wird auf die Nutzer und deren Vorlieben individuell abgestimmt. Seit Anfang 2018 können deutsche Nutzer von Instagram auf der Plattform einkaufen. Durch ein einfaches Antippen der markierten Produkte auf den Werbebildern erhalten die Nutzer weitere Informationen und Preise. Das Ganze funktioniert im Grunde wie ein visuelles Schaufenster.
Jeder Marketingkanal bedarf einer speziellen Marketingstrategie – so auch Instagram. Zum Beispiel sind veröffentlichte Bilder nicht mit einer URL bzw. einem Link versehen. Zudem können Nutzer keine Bilder teilen. Dadurch ist es schwierig, unmittelbaren Traffic oder eine Konversion zu messen. Instagram ist daher als digitaler Branding Kanal einzuordnen.

As you might already know, Instagram has made it possible and easy to switch between your personal and business accounts. Setting up a business profile has a number of advantages. It allows you to get access to real-time analytics and view the engagement metrics on particular posts. Users, in turn, can reach out to you by tapping the Contact button and taking a specific action afterwards, like making a call or sending you an email. In 2016, Instagram rolled out a new option for business accounts – Instagram for Business. It’s a great way to put the promoted product in front of your target audience in a few simple steps. Upgrade your business profile to Instagram for Business. Create a compelling, eye-catching post featuring the product. Select the target audience, budget, promotional content, CTA, and duration of the promotion. Once it’s done, you will see the button “Promote” under your post and be able to start running your ad on Instagram!

Well… You got me! I am an entrepreneur and found you on Instagram through a model’s post. I own an Internet marketing agency and I think this is absolutely genius what you are doing. I was wondering what models were getting paid to promote on their profiles. I have been reading your blog for the past week and a half and I can already tell you that you will have a loyal follower here already. I may not be your $57,000 ROI but will definitely refer you to other digital marketers. If you are still taking entries for the giveaway, I’d like to get the university course! Haha!
Das soziale Netzwerk baut die angebotenen Features immer weiter aus. Während man zu längst vergessenen Zeiten ausschließlich mit Hashtags versehene Fotos auf der Plattform posten konnte, besteht mittlerweile unter anderem die Möglichkeit über die App zu chatten, Stories, die à la Snapchat 24 Stunden sichtbar sind, hochzuladen und bezahlte Werbung zu schalten. Diese Optionen sind für Firmen und Marketer demnach mehr als attraktiv und halten zahllose Möglichkeiten bereit, kreativ, individuell und bestensfalls authentisch zu werben. Die folgenden 11Strategien schaffen eine Grundlage für die ideale Instagram-Präsenz.
To be a leader in affiliate marketing, networks and agencies must recognize that advertisers are seeking more than just one-off leads or incremental sales. They want advocates and storytellers who can engage potential shoppers, demonstrate vertical expertise, and strengthen brand loyalty to inspire a long-term relationship. Influencers allow brands to take advantage of all the benefits of affiliate marketing, including transparency and guaranteed exposure while adding the power to connect with shoppers and strengthen brand affinity. Affiliate marketing is a proven channel, strengthened by its access to data and quantifiable results. The opportunity is now for both advertisers and their affiliate networks to embrace influencer marketing and make it as cost-effective and transparent as they have affiliate marketing. In this case, the whole – affiliate marketing and influencer marketing – is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.
Das Problem, dass Instagram keine Links unter den einzelnen Beiträgen zulässt, umgeht Liketoknow.it mit einem cleveren Trick: Influencer melden sich bei dem Service an, tragen die Affiliate-Links zu den Outfits in einer Web-Oberfläche ein und bekommen einen Liketoknow.it-Link (z.B.: www.liketk.it/2inYP). Diesen posten sie dann in der Beschreibung des jeweiligen Instagram-Fotos – wo er wegen der Instagram-Vorgaben nicht klickbar ist. Jeder Instagram-Nutzer der dieses Foto liked und bei Liketoknow.it angemeldet ist, bekommt dann eine E-Mail mit den Links zum Influencer-Shop. Über die Landing-Pages der Influencer und Brands kommt er dann zum eigentlichen Online-Shop. Kauft der Nutzer, bekommt der Influencer eine Affiliate-Provision, einen Teil behält Liketoknow.it.
Ballsy approach by goimg with shoutouts for contests on models accounts. The bigger the following the lower the relative engament rate is (Average Likes+Comments/total followers). In our tests the best engagmemt was with accounts with follower counts from 10k to 100k. They are cheaper overall and you can spread your reach. Same goes foe s4s as this is the best free way of growing your Instagram account. Most people ignore how important your posted content is, if its broing in the first place all marketing efforts are flawed before even started.

One benefit of affiliate marketing is the fact that you don’t have to spend time looking for affiliates that match the types of sites your target audience visits. There are affiliate marketing service providers, like ShareASale and FlexOffers, that connect you with businesses, manage payments, offer tracking tools and make sure your content only shows up on reputable sites.

Attracting influencers in the affiliate community, and seeking their assistance in spreading the word, comes into the picture. But are we going to get stuck into yet another chicken-and-egg situation? Not necessarily. There are a couple of elegant tactics to get influencers curious and impressed. Keep in mind that influencers are the masters of marketing, and might be averse to being marketed to. So keep it above board and elegant. Here is a small list of ideas:

Du kannst die Social Media Werbung auf Instagram als CPA (Cost per action) abrechnen lassen. Bei diesem beliebten Kostenmodell bezahlst Du für unterschiedliche Aktionen, die direkt mit Deiner Werbung zusammenhängen. Eine ziemlich innovative Strategie ist CPL (Cost per like). Bei dieser bezahlst Du für Deine Instagram Werbung nur, wenn ein Nutzer Deinen Beitrag geliked hat.
Once you’ve established yourself as an expert in your field, you can create digital resources for your readers and followers to download for a fee. Travel guides, blogging tips, a fitness program, you name it. If people are loving what you’re “selling” (for free) on your blog or Instagram, chances are you’ll get interest in more detailed, targeting information that you only offer to those who are willing to shell out a few bucks.
