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.
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!
Eines dieser Instagram-Profile ist „Megachats“ mit 450.000 Followern. Die über 400 Beiträge bestehen größtenteils aus Screenshots von Whatsapp-Chats, die leidlich witzig sind, aber anscheinend perfekt bei der Zielgruppe funktionieren. Das Wachstum des Accounts ist beeindruckend: In den letzten 30 Tagen gewann Megachats laut dem Analysetool Socialblade über 60.000 Follower. Pro Tag kommen zwischen 1.500 und 3.000 Fans dazu. Offenbar betreibt derjenige oder diejenige hinter Megachats noch weitere Instagram-Kanäle und kommt insgesamt so auf über 1,8 Millionen Follower.
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,
Für Instagram Werbung in Form von klassischen Fotoanzeigen verwendest Du einfache Bilder in einem Quadrat- oder Querformat. Die Anzeigen werden auf Instagram zwischen den herkömmlichen Beiträgen gezeigt und unterscheiden sich von der Optik her durch den Hinweis “Gesponsert” von normalen Fotobeiträgen. Deine Bilder sollten in den Formaten PNG oder JPG vorliegen und die empfohlene Auflösung von 1.080 x 1.080 Pixel besitzen.
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.
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.

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.
Was möchte dein Publikum überhaupt für Inhalte sehen? Da du nicht ein x-beliebiges Publikum ansprechen möchtest, sondern zielgruppengerichtete Inhalte liefern willst, ist diese Frage von großer Bedeutung. Mache dir Gedanken, um die Personen, die du mit deinem Account erreichen möchtest. Dafür ist es sinnvoll, Themenfelder von Interesse zu finden. Um diese zu entdecken, ist es von Nutzen eine Buyer-Persona zu kreieren. So hast du im Anschluss eine Vorstellung von den hauptsächlichen Interessen deiner Follower und kannst so einen idealen und vor allem spezifischen Content erstellen.
While the world of Instagram influencers and how we utilize them to market our products is still very young, we have been able to cover several great ways to get the most out of these powerful players within your affiliate program. Good luck with all your affiliate marketing efforts and feel free to email us or comment below with any ideas or questions.
One big pro to Tradedoubler is that they track the user through cookies, even if the user has turned cookies off. For example, most affiliate programs track users through cookies. If a user clicks your link and goes to a website, but doesn’t make a purchase, they will be tracked for a period of days (usually 30 days). If within those 30 days they come back and make a purchase, you earn your commission.
Es gibt unterschiedliche Möglichkeiten, wie die Affiliates vergütet werden: Pay per Click (PPC), Pay per Sale (PPS), Pay per Lead (PPL), Pay per View (PPV), Pay per SignUp, Pay per Link, Pay per Clickout. Überlegen Sie deshalb vor der Schaltung Ihrer Anzeige, welches Ziel Sie verfolgen. Möchten Sie den allgemeinen Bekanntheitsgrad Ihrer Website erhöhen, möchten Sie ein bestimmtes Produkt fördern oder möchten Sie Ihren Affiliate z.B. nur bei einem erfolgreichen Verkaufsabschluss bezahlen? Je nachdem muss Ihre Anzeige konzipiert und die Zahlungsmöglichkeit eingestellt werden. Im Idealfall machen Sie aus jedem Euro, den Sie in eine Anzeige stecken sprichwörtlich zwei Euro Umsatz. Seien Sie in dieser Phase sehr gründlich - denn sind Ihre Anzeigenkampagnen nicht gut konzipiert und eingestellt, werfen Sie das Geld sprichwörtlich aus dem Fenster.
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!

Im Übrigen muss die Auszeichnung nichts Negatives sein. Schließlich ist den meisten Followern ohnehin bewusst, dass die Influencer die teilweise aufwendigen Kanäle mit täglichen Postings nicht umsonst betreiben, sondern damit auch Geld verdienen oder sogar ihren Lebensunterhalt damit bestreiten. Wer damit offen umgeht, ist authentisch. Die Berliner Lifestyle-Bloggerin Masha Sedgwick erzählt im Interview mit der W&V, dass ihre Leserschaft auf werbliche Posts nicht anders reagiert als auf persönliche Posts. Es hinge jedoch auch davon ab, wie diese gestaltet sind.

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.

Through his Instagram posts, Kevin shares recipes designed for both men and women who want to eat healthy to maintain the work they put in at the gym.

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.

This was an awesome post, but your comment about leveraging other entrepreneurial accounts I think is spot on. Having @BussinessPeopleInc (64k followers) or accounts like that post a quote of yours or something will probably reach your target demo much more effectively than trying to replicate accounts like Dan B’s. I’m sure you know this by now though. Great blog filled with invaluable information. Keep it coming brother.

Your strategies were really interesting. I hadn’t considered using my instagram quite that way. I actually have been having a lot of success using it to build my list, and not only that – my open rates stay at 40% or higher from the subscribers I generate from it. I grew my email list to about 40K in 6 months with my account running free events – in my case fitness challenges. It has been super effective for really connecting with my audience, as I get to be more personal and interactive with them and offer them great content daily that they engage with and it strengthens the connection they have to my brand. I’m around 118K on insta and I just really love the app. I will say in the past 6 months or so I’ve noticed less engagement than I did last year – and that may be because more and more people are using the app, especially in the health and fitness space. But it is still a great way to build celebrity, establish credibility, connect with and build your tribe and really make an impact on people on a personal level. I can’t go anywhere without being recognized from Instagram, it’s happened everywhere I’ve been in the last 2 years from Austin to Denver to San Francisco – I mean, who is ever without their “life device” aka phone these days….I did a cool podcast about how I’ve been using it for James Schramko a few months back if you want to listen to some of the ways I’ve been using it. http://www.superfastbusiness.com/business/how-to-grow-your-instagram-audience-with-betty-rocker/
To give you an idea of what sort of online presence will start to see sponsored content, I got my first Instagram collaboration request at around 5K followers (about 3 months in) and my first blog collaboration request after around two months (about 2,000 page views per month). Those were just for free product but it was still super exciting to get that first traction. My first paid collaboration was at around 14K on Instagram (about 7 months in) and on my blog at the 3 month mark (about 4,000 page views per month). Both of these were for around $100 and I only had a handful of collaborations per month (blog and Instagram combined) for a few months after those first paid gigs. My rates increased as I grew, of course, but my first full year of (Insta)blogging was definitely at an hourly rate well below minimum wage. The potential for earning decent money on blogging and Instagram is definitely there, it just takes a lot of time and effort before you see any return on investment, so to speak.
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.
Ok I am new to shopify, designed up yesterday and setup my store and got it rolling already thanks to you guys. I am going to be getting a affiliate program going now but I am curious how long shopify takes for payments to arrive in my bank if im in the USA. Do they send a payment for every order? or should I just take paypal to make it easier to pay affiliates? This is what I am trying to figure out currently, from what I heard it takes 3 days to receive payments in USA and then im assuming I could pay affiliates with paypal with bank transfer. Should I just take paypal, i mean they charge a extra 2% that adds up?
So now you know the 5+ handy ways to make money through Instagram, you’re all set to start building your empire. Whatever avenue you decide to go down, be sure to always keep your personal brand in mind and treat what you do as a business. The more you understand what it is you can offer, the stronger your message will be to potential collaborators!
Most affiliate networks these days offer an option to set a specific coupon code as “forced exclusive” to a specific affiliate publisher. This means that any time that coupon code is used, even if no affiliate link was clicked previously, the specific affiliate which the code is tied to always gets commission for sales where customers use that code. This is especially helpful if customers happen to visit a coupon site or a different bottom funnel affiliate before making their purchase when the Instagram influencer was the true referrer for the sale and deserves the proper credit.
One way to increase your chances of getting good ROI through Instagram marketing is by being as targeted as possible in the people you’re going after. For example, if you have an online store that sells formal shoes, you might want to target influencers that specialize in “professional footwear for men” as opposed to influencers that are in “men’s fashion.”
Um mit Instagram Geld verdienen zu können und potentielle Käufer in deinen Checkout zu leiten, nutze dafür idealerweise eine Kombination aus Stories und Bildern, und weise darauf hin, dass das Produkt unter dem Link in deiner Biografie erreichbar ist. Mit einem exklusiven Coupon Code kannst du im Nachgang sogar messen, welchen Effekt das gebracht hat. Wenn du reine Klicks messen willst, kannst du z.B. den URL Shortener Bitly.com nutzen. Wenn du mehrere URLs verwenden willst, nutze z.B. Linktr.ee (nutze ich selbst auch). 

When you are posting a photo make sure you use relevant tags. Including hashtags means more engagement and likes. To find the best tags for your content you need to research your audience to find out what hashtags they are using on their posts. Posting the most popular tags won’t necessarily help you in the long run. For example, a travel blogger should have travel related tags. If they were to include a hashtag about vitamins it wouldn’t necessarily fit with their content. If you include a hashtag that doesn’t fit with your niche, people will be less likely to engage with you.

In the beginning, the tracking capabilities of affiliate marketing felt revolutionary: marketers were giving trackable links to publishers, with the publisher earning a commission every time a reader made a click or a purchase. Leveraging this newfound transparency opened up an opportunity for publishers to monetize their content without having to sell banner ads and pop-ups, while brands could now have a trackable, results-driven strategy for their marketing spend.
