Wow, this is just amazing. I read your other post about how to grow your instagram account and I have been using your tips ever since. I am fairly new to instagram ( started begging of February 2017), so far I can’t really impressed anyone with the number of followers but slowly moving forward;) Thank you very much for your posts once again and I looking forward to read new ones.

Sie können Ihre Fotos allerdings auch als Drucke und auf anderen Produkten so verkaufen, wie im letzten Abschnitt beschrieben. Mit Dienstleistern wie Printful und Teelaunch können Sie Ihre Fotos auf Plakate, Handycases, Kissen und vieles mehr drucken. Die Firmen kümmern sich um den Versand und Kundenbetreuung. Sie müssen sich nur um den Verkauf kümmern.


The truth is that both influencer and affiliate marketing are powerful ways to educate your target audience and turn them into customers. Not understanding the differences and how each strategy works means you miss out on opportunities to increase your reach and grow your business. You see, it’s not about relying on just one strategy all the time but instead figuring out which one meets your current goals and alternating between the strategies.

Pick a Niche – When businesses look for influencers to promote their products, they want someone who has a following made up of people in their niche. Popular niches on Instagram include fashion, health, and fitness, travel and cookery, to name a few. Choose a niche that is relevant to your lifestyle and then post images, and build your audience around this subject. You will then become a valuable influencer to businesses in your particular industry.

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.
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:
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.
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.
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.”
I think the whole thing with it now being paid for has ruin what it is. It was a chance that every day people got a chance to feel special and be known just for doing what they do…eat out, shop, create etc. Now its just another platform in which experts have taken over and turned into a platform for making money which ruin what it is…. cant just be liked for who you are now people are projecting this “perfect” life bullshit and I’m so over it… Even when celebrities started getting on there it was cool because you got to see a personal side to them and once again they sell out for money (or pay someone to do it for them) and once again just turned into another social outlet taken over by fake and rich people… lame
Als Teil des Online Marketings ist Affiliate Marketing eine besondere Form des provisionsbasierten Bezahlungsmodells: Sogenannte Publisher oder auch Affiliates (Webseitenbetreiber) veröffentlichen Werbung von sogenannten Merchants oder Advertisern (die werbetreibenden Unternehmen) – kommt es hierbei zu einem Lead oder Sale, erhält der Publisher eine Provision.
Whatever you showcase on your blog or Instagram – be it good photography, writing, interior design, fashion styling – there may be people who are interested in hiring you for these skills and not for you to promote anything on your channels. I’ve worked with several brands on a photography basis (I photograph their content for them without necessarily posting anything to my Instagram or blog) and I’ve also been hired to makeover a brand’s Instagram account. These sort of opportunities usually come to you but you can also try actively reaching out to brands who you think you would be a good fit for.
A common issue with Instagram influencers is finding a way to get customers to click on affiliate links. It’s common to see captions include “link in the bio,” but this is an extra step that sometimes customers don’t take. Thus, there could be sales that came from this influencer that they’re not getting credit for. This is bad for the influencer because they’re losing out on commissions and this is bad for the brand because you’re not able to properly track the success of their campaigns. This is where forced exclusive unique coupon codes come in.
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!
Als Schleichwerbung wird Werbung bezeichnet, die nicht als solche zu erkennen ist. Ein solcher Fall ist zum Beispiel gegeben, wenn sich ein Produkt „rein zufällig“ auf einen Instagram-Post schummelt und der Influencer dafür bezahlt wurde, dass er es dort platziert. Oder wenn ein Influencer auf Instagram begeistert über ein Produkt berichtet, zum Beispiel über den Fitnesstee, den er angeblich jeden Morgen trinkt – obwohl die finanzielle Vergütung der einzige Grund für das Foto ist.

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.
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:
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!
Zum einen sind die Storys, die 24 Stunden sichtbar sind und danach verfallen, bei allen Usern das Erste, was sie sehen, wenn die App geöffnet wird. So sieht man das Profilbild des Accounts umringt mit einem rötlichen, instagram-farbenen Kreis. Die aktuellsten Storys werden den Abonnenten derweil immer als erstes oben links angezeigt. Das bedeutet für dich, dass regelmäßige Story-Updates dir quasi die Poleposition in der App der User sichern.

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.
Mitte 2015 sackt Rewardstyle ein 15 Millionen Dollar-Investment unter anderem von Maverick Capital ein. Das Hauptprodukt des Unternehmens ist ein Affiliate-Netzwerk für Fashion-Blogger, das 2015 für 500 Millionen US-Dollar in Sales gesorgt haben soll. Mit dem Geld schiebt Rewardstyle aber auch ein neueres Projekt international an: Liketoknow.it. Der Dienst erlaubt es Influencern, Publishern und Brands, unter ihre Instagram-Posts Affiliate-Links zu den gezeigten Produkten zu setzen – zumindest indirekt.
