It’s easy to get caught up in numbers when creating an influencer recruitment list. Seeing a number with the magical “k” after it, representing 10,000’s of eyes versus hundreds, is enough to make a manager salivate while calculating that 3% conversion to revenue. However, when recruiting influencers to affiliate marketing, bigger is not always better. The power of the micro-influencer, an influencer with less than 10,000 followers, is one you want to harness for your program. In my experience, the micro-influencer outperforms the mega influencer time and time again. I am not alone in this discovery. HelloSociety says engagement rates are 60% higher with micro versus mega influencers. in addition to higher engagement with your brand, you will also have higher response rates on your outreach with micro influencers. Smaller influencers are more likely to participate in affiliate marketing and listen to recommendations that translate to more sales.”

Abonnenten sind nichts Permanentes. Um sicherzustellen, dass deine Follower deine Inhalte weiterhin interessant finden und dir erhalten bleiben, solltest du beachten, dass du regelmäßig Inhalte lieferst, per Nachrichten interagierst und dich authentisch zeigst. Außerdem kannst du deinen Abonnenten folgen. So zeigst du Kundennähe und kannst durch Likes oder Kommentare für Fotos deiner Follower eine durchgehende Präsenz sowie Interesse zeigen. Diese Nähe zu den Usern wird langfristig gesehen auch deine Reichweite positiv beeinflussen.
Instagram hat sich zu einem wichtigen Marketingkanal für visuelle Kommunikation entwickelt. Bereits 86 Prozent der Top 100 Unternehmen sind mittlerweile auf Instagram aktiv – mit einer nachweisbaren Erfolgsquote für ihr Produkt. “Marken und Konsumenten standen sich noch nie so nah wie auf Instagram”. Deshalb sollten Unternehmen die Möglichkeiten ihrer Marketingstrategien ausschöpfen und sich auf Instagram anmelden.
La forza del contenuto visuale – molto più facile da comprendere rispetto a un testo – rende Instagram un canale sicuramente adatto alla promozione di prodotti, scatenando facilmente fenomeni virali e trend: questa caratteristica si unisce anche al maggiore coinvolgimento che il canale stesso solitamente permette, per via del minor numero di utenti (e quindi di affollamento di contenuti) rispetto a Facebook, tanto per citare l’esempio più eclatante.

Es gibt verschiedenen Regeln, wenn es um Sponsored Posts geht. Trotzdem sollten Sie, um das Vertrauen Ihres Publikums nicht zu verspielen, stets einen Hashtag #sponsored hinzufügen, wenn es sich um einen Sponsored Post handelt. Und noch etwas zur Beruhigung: 69 Prozent der Influencer haben in einer Umfrage erklärt, dass Transparenz bezüglich ihrer Kooperationen keinen Einfluss darauf hatte, wie Kunden sie wahrgenommen haben.
Du kannst Dein Werbebudget für die Instagram-Anzeigen entweder täglich oder alternativ über die gesamte Laufzeit der Werbekampagne festlegen. Entscheidest Du Dich für ein Tagesbudget, musst Du jeden Tag aufs Neue festlegen, wie viel Du maximal für Deine Werbeanzeigen ausgeben willst. Ist der maximale Betrag erreicht, werden über die Plattform an diesem Tag keine Anzeigen mehr geschaltet. Dadurch bleibst Du flexibel und kannst auf Veränderungen ohne Probleme reagieren.
Before we can get into affiliate links, first we need to talk about the affiliate program. An affiliate program is hosted by a company that wants to use marketers who are not employed by the company to promote their product or service. These marketers, and their social media accounts, are often related to the product or niche in some way. For example, a health blogger might sign up for an affiliate program promoting vitamins.

I need to know other wise I aint never buying a IG Account and I allso want to know how much was did you buy the account for. that wasn’t addressed in the article
Präsentieren Blogger und Influencer Produkte auf ihren Internet-Auftritten, handelt es sich dabei in vielen Fällen um bezahlte Beiträge. Denn viele Unternehmen haben die Internet-Berühmtheiten als Markenbotschafter entdeckt. Nicht selten erhalten die Influencer auch eine Beteiligung, wenn ihre Fans die Produkte nachkaufen. Experten bezeichnen dies als Affiliate Marketing.

Ja, dieser Beitrag hat einen SEO-Fokus. Ganz klar, ich bin und bleibe in meinem Herzen ein SEO-Nerd. Es gibt noch viele weitere Trends, die du im Auge behalten solltest. Damit meine ich nicht, dass du auf jeden Trend aufspringen musst. Vielmehr solltest du für dich entscheiden, was dein Unternehmen, dein Imperium voranbringt. Jeder hat einen eigenen Stil und das ist auch im Affiliate Marketing nicht anders.

There will always be plenty of brands that reach out to you who don’t have budget beyond simply free gifting. When you’re first starting out, that’s only natural as you don’t yet have as much to offer when it comes to your online reach. Collaborating on a free gifting basis allows you to build up your credibility, your brand, and open the doors for future collaborations because you’re able to showcase that you make a great spokesperson for a brand. But there comes a point when ( a ) the novelty of getting stuff for free wears off and ( b ) you realize that you’re providing brands with something of value and that you should be fairly compensated for that. The expectation by so many brands that influencers do work for free is something that really irks me. In what other profession would you do work and not get paid for it, whether or not you’re just starting out in the industry? Sure, you might just make a little above minimum wage, but you’re definitely being paid something. Yes, smaller brands and those just starting out probably won’t have a huge marketing budget and I still sometimes work on a gifting basis if it’s a brand I firmly believe in and want to build a long-term relationship with. But when companies that have been around for years and have built up a successful brand themselves don’t value you and your work enough to feel you should be paid? It’s a slap in the face, to be honest. Ladies (and gentlemen), please know your worth and don’t feel pressure to do free (or underpaid) work. It’s better to say no and save yourself the time and hassle. When you say no to working for free, you’re leaving yourself open to collaborations with brands who are willing to pay you fairly. You only have a limited number of hours to do work each week and, most likely, you also have a limited number of sponsored posts you want to do each week to keep your Instagram feed and blog from appearing too sales-pitchy. Leave those coveting slots open for brands who value you.
Here are some more influencer networks that I have absolutely no experience with but that I’ve found online and are recommended by other bloggers, in alphabetical order (*): Acorn Influence, Activate by Bloglovin’, AdvoWire, BlogHer, Blog Meets Brand, BrandBacker, Clever, Content BLVD, Everywhere Agency, Experticity, Famebit, Fitfluencial, Hypetap, Influence Central, Influincity, Instabrand, Massive Sway, Megan Media, Network Niche, NeoReach, One2One Network, Pollinate Media, She Knows Media, She Speaks, Snapfluence, Speakr, Sway Group,  The Shelf Network, and Tribe Group.
Technically this should go before #7 and #8 because you need to figure out your rates before you can do sponsored content. That said, most sponsored content starts out as free gifting, which means you don’t actually need to know rates in the beginning since you’ll just be getting free product in exchange for your Instagram and blog posts. I also wanted to talk about sponsored content and influencer networks before I get into rates because I’ve had two very different experiences with the two when it comes to how much they pay.
YouTube – The Google Darling does not disappoint. Videos allow for optimal search engine optimization and engagement, a winning combination. In addition, the influencer can easily place affiliate links in the video description and create a CTA requesting followers to click on it. Lastly, YouTube makes it easy to contact the influencer in one step by revealing an email address. Why, thank you YouTube! When a niche YouTube account appears in my search results, a small victory dance ensues.
Your customers' photos: Linked to this is the use of User Generated Content on your account. Get customers to share their images of your products and re-gram (download "Repost for Instagram" app to repost your customers' photos). This is a proven successful method of selling and would make a great addition to your account. It also calls for you to start up your own unique hashtag which you can then promote to all your customers: it’s a seriously slick way to make yourself stand out from the crowd. For example, White Castle asks their customers to use #MyCrave to their photos. Now when they see them using that hashtag, they can repost (or regram) their photos to their Instagram account. Here's an example:

Affiliate marketing can be a great way to earn money through your blog, especially once your traffic picks up. If you’re new to this concept, it’s essentially a custom URL with a unique tracking code in it. If someone purchases something through your affiliate link, you’ll earn a commission (typically between 5-15%). And it usually doesn’t have to be the specific item you linked. Most of these affiliate programs will give you a commission if someone purchased anything from a particular site within a specific time window after the click through. The great thing about programs such as Amazon Associates, Reward Style, Shop Style and Link Share, is they’re easy to setup and start using and there is no risk involved – worst case scenario you don’t make any money but best case you’ll make a nice chunk of change without anything other than creating a custom link for the product you’re planning on linking anyway. Most will also accept all bloggers regardless of page views. I’m not going to go into too much detail about affiliate marketing, since there’s a ton of good information online already. You can read a great in-depth article about affiliate marketing for bloggers here.
On the other hand, if your goal is to get people to promote your product or service, special offers, discounts and more through channels other than social media, then use affiliate marketing. Target bloggers, companies and publishers with content that complements or relates to your brand base. Understand your customers’ needs and their interests so that you speak to your target audience about what matters most to them. If you sell workout gear, then partner with health and fitness publishers that focus on weight loss, healthy eating and more. This approach of speaking to specific customers with specific needs works because affiliate marketing is designed to generate leads and help you grow your revenue.
On the other hand this experiment could be helpful if taken with a large grain of salt – I can see how this can inspire marketing ideas for consumer /lifestyle brands. I’ll be looking into some of the things you mentioned for a consumer client of mine who’s demographic is perfectly in the Instagram space. Minus the bikini models though – that’s just not my style 😉
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.

Nordstrom Rack’s recent partnership with Shopping Links is an outstanding example how influencer marketing can be coupled with affiliate marketing to drive not only brand awareness but also traffic and sales. By utilizing the Shopping Links Influencer marketplace, Nordstrom Rack was able to simplify the process of identifying and gifting influencers at scale. Individually-selected Influencers created a series of social media posts supported with blog posts to showcase Nordstrom Rack’s products to more than 500,000 potential customers.
Experten vermuten, dass die Öffnung für andere Unternehmen möglicherweise bald eintreten wird und somit auch kleinere Unternehmen auf der Plattform werben können. Voraussichtlich lässt die kürzlich in den USA eingeführte “Carousel-Technik” für das deutsche Instagram nicht mehr lange auf sich warten. Mit dieser können Posts mit einem Link versehen werden, was derzeit nur in der Profil-Biografie möglich ist.

Weil es so schwer ist, Nutzer zur Anmeldung zu bewegen, denkt Doberschütz schon über neue Möglichkeiten nach, das Projekt zum Erfolg zu führen. Er hat einen Exit-Intent-Layer eingebaut. Wenn man die StyleLike-Seite verlassen will, erscheint ein Pop-up, das ein kostenloses E-Book über Instagram-Erfolg verspricht – wenn man seine E-Mail-Adresse hinterlässt. Auf diesem Weg will Doberschütz Nutzer langfristig an sich binden. Denn in Zukunft will er StyleLike zu einer Monetarisierungs-Plattform für Fashion-Influencer aufbauen – egal, wo die ihre Inhalte posten. Außerdem will er eine Instagram Academy gründen. In Online-Kursen soll jeder dort lernen, wie er bei Instagram mehr Follower aufbauen kann. Und Brands würden sich nach besseren Analysemöglichkeiten für visuelle Inhalte sehnen und so überlegt Doberschütz, eine Plattform für Influencer-Stockfotos zu gründen. Da steht viel auf dem Plan. Allzu leicht scheint es also nicht zu sein, mit Liketoknow.it im Kerngeschäft zu konkurrieren. Daher sucht sich Doberschütz eben auch andere Bereiche, um Geld zu verdienen.

Mit die cleversten Errungenschaften der digitalen Welt sind die Möglichkeiten des Trackings. Das Tracking (auf Deutsch „Verfolgung“) beschreibt die technische Möglichkeit 100%ig nachzuvollziehen, welcher User nacheinander was gemacht hat. Es ermöglicht im Affiliate Marketing genau zu erkennen, wann ein User auf eine Anzeige geklickt hat, wohin ihn der entsprechende Link geführt hat, bis hin zu der Tatsache, welches Produkt er letztlich gekauft hat. Werbekampagnen können so, z.B. durch gezielt eingesetzte A/B Tests, perfekt optimiert werden und Affiliates erfolgsbasiert bezahlt werden.
At a direct conversion of $39/month subscription, you will receive $19.50/month commission at 50% each month. While you are sending traffic and referrals, you will receive $19.50 every month until that 1 sale cancels.  In addition, they may sign up as affiliates through your referral and you will be able to see who you referred that signed up. We will also pay you an additional 5% of your referred affiliate’s commissions!
Whether you are a brand or an influencer, creating a good Instagram profile isn’t as easy as it sounds. In principle it’s simple - take a good photo, upload it, add a filter and upload it. However, some of the most successful accounts have taken steps to make sure their Instagram stands out from the crowd so that they can gain more followers, and if they are an influencer, it paves the way for big brands to want to work with them to reach a wider audience.
Wer auf Plattformen wie Facebook, Pinterest oder Instagram Affiliate Marketing betreibt, sollte die entsprechenden Links als Werbung kennzeichnen. Experten empfehlen in diesem Zusammenhang einen Hinweis auf Werbung im „unmittelbaren Umfeld des Links“. Darüber hinaus ist es ratsam die Nutzer über die Funktionsweise von Affiliate Marketing zu informieren.
Once you’re starting to work with brands in a paid capacity, it’s great to have a media kit on hand to send along when requested. A media kit is a document that outlines the key facts and statistics of your blog. From the number of blog readers / social media followers you have, your page views, reader / follower demographics, the types of collaborations you do, and brands you’ve worked with in the past. You’ll also want to include a short bio of yourself / your blog as well as where you can be found online. Jeni, from The Media Maven wrote a detailed post about what you need to include to make a kick-a** media kit.

Earnings are what matter to most affiliates. Our commissions indicate how we are performing, which is why affiliate marketing is also called performance and commissioned-based marketing. You can monitor traffic to your website in which case Google Analytics will do the trick. To learn more about your audience, measure reach, and track engagement, check out Instagram Insights (for business profiles), Hootsuite Analytics, and Iconosquare.
The easiest way to get a lot from your influencer partners in your affiliate program is to set up a compensation plan with them where they’re paid a flat amount of money in exchange for promoting your products or services on their feed. Most influencers do not like working on a commission basis. They would much rather get cash upfront. If your brand were willing to do this, this would be the best way to get their attention. You could even work out a zero commission deal with them where they don’t earn commission from the sales they refer at all. If the influencer is really powerful, you might even come out ahead despite the upfront risk.
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 🙂
