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.
I personally don’t do either of these forms of advertising because I’m very particular about the look and feel of my blog and from my (admitted) very limited research, it looks like I might earn about $10 a day which really isn’t all that much when you take into consideration what I’m giving up (that very clean, ad-free blog look). That said, I really haven’t done enough research and I might look into this option at some point down the road.
On Instagram, hashtags are your best friend. They’ll put your post in front of thousands more people. That will earn you more followers, and, hopefully, more sales. Make sure you add relevant hashtags to all posts promoting the product or service. Going back to our health food blogger example, she might add hashtags like #healthyliving and #cleaneating to her affiliate posts.

Zu einer erfolgreichen Instagram-Kampagne gehört immer das Analysieren der Konkurrenz im gleichen Themenfeld. Dort können angehende Instagram-Merchants feststellen, wie Produkte dargestellt werden und welche Bilder besonders beliebt sind. Mit den gewonnen Daten und einer individuellen Marketingkampagne steht dem Beginn der Instagram-Karriere nichts mehr im Wege.
Im Gegensatz zu Pinterest ist das Einbinden von Affiliate Links auf Instagram erlaubt. Besonders User mit einer großen Reichweite können mit dieser Methode Geld im Internet verdienen. Derzeit nutzen augenfällig viele Mode-Blogger die Vorteile des Affiliate Marketings, um mehr Umsätze zu generieren. Aber auch andere Branchen sind von der Verwendung des Werbelinks nicht ausgeschlossen.
Verkaufen bei Instagram – ein Traum vieler Brands. Aber ohne, dass man unter einem Bild einen direkten Link posten kann, ist das nur schwer möglich. Dank Tools wie Liketoknow.it gibt es nun zumindest für Instagram-Influencer und Brands einen Workaround, um Affiliate-Links zu generieren. Wir zeigen wie Affiliate-Marketing bei Instagram funktioniert, wer daran verdient und warum ein deutsches Startup jetzt auch mitmacht.
Website advertising is probably already very familiar to you. You’ve seen an ad, you’ve clicked on an ad, heck you may have even purchased something as a direct result of clicking on that ad. There are essentially two ways of creating ads on your website. The first is getting brands to pay you for advertising space and in turn you post their ad (banner) somewhere on your website (usually in the sidebar). You can reach out to brands directly to try and sell your ad space or, if brands reach out to you, you can offer that as an option.

Instagram (IG) is many things. It has over 800 million users, and Instagrammers have deep pockets. For example, among adult users, 31 percent make over $75,000 annually. IG users “like” over 4.2 billion and share 95 million posts daily. Zuckerberg and company got the IG acquisition correct along with WhatsApp (the jury is still out on Oculus VR). IG is moving in the right direction and stomping on their competitors like Snap. Storylines like these make affiliate marketers drool except for one problem, IG is link-unfriendly.

So it means that 5 people will buy using your Affiliate link and let's say that you promote a product for $50 dollars and only 10$ will go for you. So you just made $50 Dollars after two weeks working less than 1hour in those two weeks. It’s really easy and realy fast money and if you know where to look you can get sometimes even $100 Commiosn for each person that bought product that you promoted.
Social Media Werbung erfreut sich an einer großen Beliebtheit, so auch Instagram Werbung. Aktuelle Studien belegen, dass Unternehmen von Werbung in den sozialen Medien deutlich profitieren. Werbung auf Facebook, Twitter und Instagram lockt die Kunden mindestens so effektiv wie die klassische TV- und Printwerbung und ist im direkten Vergleich zu den bewährten Werbemaßnahmen deutlich günstiger.
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.
Von 2014 bis 2018 ist die Zahl der monatlich aktiven User von 200 Millionen auf 800 Millionen gestiegen. Davon sind ganze 500 Millionen Nutzer täglich aktiv. Die Relevanz des Netzwerks ist für Marketer und Firmen offensichtlich nicht mehr von der Hand zu weisen. Anand Srinivasan berichtet auf Falcon, dass die verbrachte Zeit auf der Plattform jährlich um 80 Prozent steigt. Doch wie sticht man bei diesen hohen Nutzerzahlen aus der Masse heraus und kreiert eine erfolgreiche Instagram-Präsenz mit zielgruppengerichtetem Content und einer hohen Reichweite?

Make sure your bio includes some good information about you or your company - you have 150 characters to show off what you’re about. Make sure you include your website link, and a way of contacting you as well - this is important for influencers, and also brands. At the moment it isn’t possible to search bios for keywords and hashtags, so don’t worry about using those in your bio.


This is a great way to get noticed by a brand and maybe even have them repost your photo, which is great for growth. But even better yet, if you get on their radar they might just contact you for a collaboration. At the very least, it’s great for brands who are thinking of working with you to see that you do product placement on your Instagram (whether or not the brands you tag actually paid you or not). I wouldn’t go overboard, though, and tag every single item in every single photo. Just whatever happens to be prominent in the photo or whatever people typically ask you about in your comments. For example, I get a lot of questions about my IKEA learning tower hack so I actually created a separate Instagram account with the tutorial link so I can tag that account (@ikealearningtower) in every one of my kitchen photos because I know there will be someone interested in that info.
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.”
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.
Da man für das Setzen von Affiliate-Links und den Einbau von Affiliate-Bannern keine direkte Gegenleistung erhält, könnte man an dieser Stelle folgern, dass keine Kennzeichnung notwendig ist. Aber natürlich gibt es eine nachgelagerte Vergütung, die ohne das Setzen der Links und Banner nicht zustande kommen würde. Zudem würde man solche Affiliatelinks nicht setzen, wenn man nicht auch einen finanziellen Profit davon erwarten würde.

A practical way to generate affiliate commissions through IG is to add a link to your website or blog. Many affiliate marketers use IG as a traffic source. As traffic flows to your site, visitors will discover your content and stumble upon affiliate links. You might even create a unique URL and welcome page for your IG traffic. For example, chadtennant.com/instagram. Your welcome page could acknowledge your presence on IG and provide a brief intro about you and your offerings. For example,


It’s highly advisable when working with influencers in your affiliate program to work out an agreement with them where they get some free product and create their own content for their feed featuring your product. Followers are a lot more likely to engage with a sponsored post that has a personal touch attached to it. The ultimate reason we work with influencers in the first place is because they influence people to buy certain products. There’s no better way to do this than with a personalized post consisting of product you gave to them.
You will see that I created a simple image with some selling features, noting the SALE, warranty, RETURNS and a big SWIPE UP which was pointing to my http://bit.ly/amazonferrariwatch URL I created from the Amazon Associates Affiliate Offering code (yea it’s a mouthful) but it’s the big long messy URL in the image below (which is from Bit.ly dashboard). This is an amazing officially licensed Ferrari watch backed with a 2 year warranty and FREE returns. It doesn’t get any nicer of a “sell” than offering all these things to an automotive enthusiast following like I have!
Natalie Mortimer and Holly Erickson are the women behind The Modern Proper. Currently with over 90k followers, they have gained much popularity after they were finalists for Saveur’s Best Home-Cooked Food Blog in 2016. They have been praised for their modern approach at preparing simple yet delicious meals, which is very well presented in their Instagram posts.
Indem du deinen Konkurrenten aus der Branche folgst, bist du in der Lage zu beobachten, wie die Zielgruppe, die du auch ansprechen willst, auf Beiträge von direkten Mitbewerbern reagiert. Dabei bekommst du eine Vorstellung davon, welche Inhalte bei deinem Publikum gut ankommen würden. Zusätzlich ist es möglich, dass du inspirierende Ideenanstöße erhältst. Es ist dennoch wichtig, dass du Inhalte nicht eins zu eins kopierst, sondern deinen individuellen Stellenwert beibehältst. Wirf auch einen Blick auf die Hashtags, die deine Mitstreiter verwenden. Zu guter Letzt verbindest du dich nicht nur mit deinen Konkurrenten, sondern auch mit deinen Kollegen aus der Branche und zeigst dich ihnen gegenüber offen und interessiert.
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!
For affiliate marketers, this means you can create a post with an image incorporating an affiliate product, with the affiliate link added as text overlay, or in the caption. This post will then be shared on an influencers Instagram account, exposing your affiliate link to a new audience, as well as finding you potential new Instagram followers for your own account.
