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.

Wenn du Hashtags richtig einsetzt, kannst du mit der dazugewonnen Reichweite neue Follower generieren. Doch viele User wissen nicht mehr wirklich, wie sie Hashtags bestmöglich einsetzen sollen. Nicht wenige Gerüchte haben sich verbreitet. Mit vielen Hashtags erreicht man eine hohe Performance? Leider ein Mythos, der sich nicht bewahrheitet. In unserem ultimativen Instagram Hashtag Guide für 2018 findest du alle relevanten Informationen zu einem idealen Umgang mit Hashtags.
Unter dem Titel “Die Macht der Bilder für gezieltes Geld verdienen auf Instagram” beleuchten wir im vorliegenden Beitrag die Merchant Perspektive. In einem zweiten Beitrag wird auf das Geld verdienen für Affiliates eingegangen. Dabei ist die Grenze zwischen beiden Akteuren nicht immer eindeutig. Viele Inhalte gelten sowohl für die Unternehmerperspektive als auch für Affiliates. Beispielsweise werden berühmte Persönlichkeiten unter Merchants aufgeführt, obwohl sie neben der Vermarktung von eigenen Interessen auch für andere Produkte werben.
High Cost/Low Effort — Get an agency to send you potential Influencers. Talent agencies like Viral Nation or MediaKix work with a stable of popular social Influencers who you can connect with for a fee. Unless you’ve got money to burn, and are looking to launch a huge Instagram Influencer campaign, this option is probably one to avoid for now. But hey, it’s there if you want to go big!
Influencer-Marketing ist nicht nur etwas für große Unternehmen. Auch kleine und mittelständische Unternehmen können so mit relativ wenig Mitteln auf sich aufmerksam machen. Sie müssen zum Beispiel keinen eigenen Content erstellen, denn das übernehmen die Influencer. Und wenn diese ihre selbst gestalteten Posts nicht korrekt auszeichnen und damit Schleichwerbung machen, sind sie dann nicht selbst schuld? So einfach ist es nicht. Wer Influencer beauftragt, für seine Marke zu werben, kann dafür verantwortlich gemacht werden, wenn es sich dabei um Schleichwerbung handelt. Unternehmen und Agenturen sollten also unbedingt darauf achten, dass die Influencer die Posts richtig auszeichnen. Das lässt sich zum Beispiel über Verträge und/oder entsprechende Guidelines regeln.

While affiliate marketing has long been driven by a need to gain website clicks, this channel is now quickly evolving into a strategy that cultivates leads from social channels like Instagram and Facebook. Instrumental in this evolution are influencers: as social leaders with the ability to inspire conversions from their loyal followers, they are now forming an integral component of successful affiliate campaigns.

Die haben NIRGENDS auch nur Andeutungen von „Werbung“. Nicht mal in den Datenschutz Texten steht „Amazon“ oder „Affiliate“ drin.. wtf? Die machen seit Jahren Millionen und sind somit für mich mehr als „Vorbildstauglich“ für die Szene. Ich würde mich ja nach deren Design richten, wenn ich es mich trauen würde. Kann man die vielleicht mal kurz vom tollen Staat untersuchen lassen, damit wir aus deren Urteil lernen können?
Eine Verbindung zwischen den Usern und dir zu schaffen ist maßgeblich für das Engagement auf deinem Profil. Wenn das nächste Mal jemand einen Post von dir kommentiert, dann antworte und trete in Interaktion mit deinen Abonnenten. Potratz rät auch dazu, des Öfteren Fotos mit Gesichtern zu veröffentlichen. Diese würden nämlich rund 38 Prozent mehr Likes bekommen als andere Fotos.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
Very interesting experiment and read. I know that IG can be very successful for my industry (powersports) though I don’t use it much. As a father I know that youth in my area perfer IG to FB and other social media outlets. I wonder if a new account with $57k in advertising would have done as well as the $15k existing account with $42k in advertising over the same time period?

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.
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 🙂
Die Entwicklung kennen wir von Facebook. Aus einem sozialen Netzwerk, in dem man vor allem Bilder und Status-Updates von Freunden sehen konnte, wurde schnell ein Medien-Hub. Das nutzten viele Publisher, um mit „viralen“ Posts Fans zu sammeln. Die kann man dann über Links zu den eigenen Seiten oder zu Partnern schicken und so mit der Reichweite verdienen. Doch das Geschäft ist schwierig geworden. Die organische Reichweite sinkt, auch weil Facebook mit seinem Algorithmus den Newsfeed der Nutzer bestimmt. Bei Instagram dagegen ist der Feed noch nicht durch einen Algorithmus gefiltert, es macht deshalb gerade den Eindruck, als würden Facebook-Publisher weiterziehen, um bei Instagram das Geschäftsmodell weiterzuführen. Dort häufen sich in letzter Zeit Accounts, die die gleiche Strategie verfolgen, wie erfolgreiche Facebook-Publisher: Witzige Beiträge für 14 bis 24 Jährige, um viele Follower einzusammeln.

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:


To succeed in affiliate marketing, a publisher needs to deploy thousands of links in multiple places to increase the number of clicks and conversions. On IG, the only place to put a hyperlink is in one’s bio. Links anywhere else are not clickable, for example, links in posts. Many affiliates include links in the hopes that people will copy and paste them into their browsers, but that’s a terrible strategy. So, what is an affiliate marketer to do?
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,

Some affiliate marketing offers will pay you a set fee if someone signs up for their monthly subscription service. Some will pay you a set fee for driving new users to signup for an app or service. Either way, the more you know your demographic, the more you will be able to find the best converting affiliate marketing programs to bank serious money.
Like them or hate them, hashtags make a difference. They improve the discoverability of posts and drive likes and comments. The key point here is relevance. Use the hashtags that correspond to your niche. Carry out research and pay attention to the tags your competitors use in their posts. Incorporate some branded hashtags to raise awareness, like the name of the promoted product or any other related tag. Let your creativity flow. Instagram allows to use up to 30 hashtags per post, but be careful not to go overboard. The optimal number of hashtags for maximum engagement is 11.
Here is a high impact method of engagement with influencers: why not invite them to contribute to the design of your affiliate programs? It is not going to be easy. But if you succeed, this will be a great method to create a sense of ownership in affiliates. Of course, if they get involved and then realize that it was all a big public relations hoax, this method could backfire. Like all areas of marketing and communication, you need to come across sincerely.
On the one hand I have to agree with some of previous commenters who failed to see a clear objective of this experiment. Was it to show how Instagram can help ALL types of businesses because to me the tactics you used seemed best suited to lifestyle/consumer brands not so much professional services. Also, as a female, and long-time reader of your blog, I was a little disappointed at the sexist overtones of some of your tactics – I don’t see how bikini clad models have to do with entrepreneurship or your brand in general.
Affiliate marketing examples are everywhere online. Visit any niche site and chances are you’ll find some kind of affiliate marketing. You’ll notice that affiliate marketing looks a lot like display ads. With display advertising, you create ads that appear on other websites. When site visitors click on them, they’re taken to a landing page where they can learn more about your product and convert to become a paying customer.

Now, each product promoted on Instagram can have a direct link to its products page either on Etsy, Amazon, an online store or somewhere else. This makes it easy for Instagrammers to immediately purchase something that has caught their eye as they are browsing their feed. And it makes it much much easier for eCommerce stores to drive traffic and sales from their Instagram posts.
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.

Nadine Neubauer: Instagram Shopping wurde in Deutschland von Unternehmen und Instagrammern sehnsüchtig erwartet. Die Funktion entspricht dem natürlichen Verhalten unserer Community. Mehr als 200 Millionen Menschen sehen sich täglich ein Business-Profil an und nutzen Instagram somit als virtuelles Schaufenster. Shopping komplettiert jetzt die Customer Journey dieser Menschen.
Paying to get men to look at pictures of models doesn’t seem like much of a challenge. And if it doesn’t align with your core values then isn’t that admitting that the end justifies the means? Given your success and already recognizable name why not just start clean, avoid alienating many Instagramers with the bait and switch and low hanging fruit tactic? Think you got bad advice on this one.
Tip #1 Post links to your landing pages and websites within your stories. Now before you get all like, but I need to have like 10,000 followers to be able do that. Let me give you a strategy to help get you there ASAP. The strategy I prefer for getting 10,000 followers takes a little longer than follow/unfollow, but it gets high quality active followers, and that’s Gary Vee’s $1.80 strategy. Basically with this strategy you search up 10 hashtags in your niche and and leave your 2 cents, AKA a comment on the top 9 posts for each hashtag. I highly recommend doing this over the follow, unfollow method because you can really build a strong connection which of course is great for sales, but if you’re a little more impatient feel free to do the follow, unfollow method with an app like captivate to speed up the process.
The approach you choose should also depend on how much you’re willing to spend. A larger budget allows you to partner with larger influencers who can get you as much exposure as possible. However, influencer marketing is known to be expensive. Another option is to target micro-influencers in your niche who don’t have millions of followers but have thousands of highly engaged followers.
