However, more recently, people have been using affiliate links in social media, particularly on Facebook and Instagram. Affiliate marketing is ideal for Instagrammers who have a large audience to promote and sell products to but have no actual products to sell. Instead of creating their own product, Instagrammers can simply promote someone else’s, taking a percentage of the profit once someone from their Insta-audience makes a purchase. Sounds appealing right?
Instagram – Instagram excels with brand exposure, but the UI makes it less likely that followers will click to purchase. The scrolling style of viewing posts as well as the link only being available in the bio lends itself to quick Likes and fewer clicks. However, I have seen some Instagram influencers succeed using Instagram Stories.Instagram Stories provide the personal one on one engagement feel that lends itself to conversions as well as an explanation on how followers can click on the affiliate link.
As for Instagram, having a business account makes it even easier for brands to contact you but I would personally shy away from switching since there’s a lot of whisper in the blogging world that Instagram will soon make business accounts pay to get their content seen by anyone. If you’re interested in reading more of my thoughts, check out my Instagram growth blog post – point #10).
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.
Das zweite große Problem von Instagram-Affiliate-Projekten ist die Gewinnung von Influencern und Brands. Bisher läuft das für Doberschütz aber ganz gut: „Wir haben 200 Influencer angeschrieben, die hatten so zwischen 10.000 und 50.000 Follower.“ Von diesen hätten etwa 15 Prozent Interesse bekundet. „Wir haben jetzt 25 Influencer im Portfolio, Ende April sollen es 50 sein.“ Doberschütz sieht seine Chance bei Modebloggern, die zwar nicht zu den absoluten Follower-Königen gehören, aber bei ihrer Zielgruppe authentisch ankommen. Insgesamt erreicht StyleLike über die 25 Influencer über 390.000 Instagram-Nutzer. In den zwei Wochen hat Doberschütz so über 10.000 Affiliate-Link-Klicks generiert. Wie viele Verkäufe am Ende dabei herum kommen, erzählt er nicht. Denn die Affiliate-Provisionen sind seine Einnahmequelle. Die Influencer bekommen einen monatlichen Festbetrag. „Wir zahlen Pauschalbeträge, das ist bei Influencern mit ‚kleinerer’ Reichweite so gelernt und außerdem bekommen sie so ihr Geld sofort“, erklärt uns Doberschütz. Anders als Liketoknow.it bekommen die Influencer bei Stylelike ihr Geld also im Voraus, das Startup muss dann mit den Affiliate-Provisionen die Ausgaben wieder reinbekommen. Die an die Influencer gezahlten Beträge ergeben sich laut dem StyleLike-Gründer aus den Followern und der Engagement-Rate (Likes und Kommentare). Größtenteils lägen die Zahlungen bei 100 Euro im Monat.
If you’re not getting the types of collaborations you’re hoping for through e-mails alone, you can be proactive and reach out to brands yourselves. Do a little google sleuthing to find their PR / media contact. Sometimes it’s as easy as a media enquiries e-mail address on the brand’s contact page, but more often than not brands make you work for it. I usually google “pr / media / press [at ] company [dot ] com” to see if the e-mail address shows up and will sometimes get lucky this way. Sometimes I’ll comment on a brand’s latest Instagram post with a note saying I sent them a DM (since brand accounts are usually handled by their social media manager, who either also handles collaborations or works closely with the PR department that does). Sometimes I get a media contact through a blogger friend. There are lots of ways to find the right e-mail address and, if all else fails, you can always try contacting the general help desk to see if they’re able to give you the right contact.
Die Auswahl der Bilder ist entscheidend. Da die Bildsprache Trends unterliegt, muss sie stetig auf Aktualität überprüft werden. Instagram stellt verschiedene Bildtools und Filter zur Verfügung, sodass ein fesselndes Bild entsteht. Unternehmen sollten sich über die Möglichkeiten für visuelles Storytelling informieren, um die Inhalte zielgruppengerecht und in einer kreativen, hochwertigen Umgebung zu präsentieren.
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.
Schickt ein Unternehmen ungefragt Produkte an einen Influencer, ist die Sache bislang nicht eindeutig; ein wegweisendes Urteil fehlt. Bespricht ein Influencer das Produkt sachlich und subjektiv, müsste er dies wahrscheinlich nicht kennzeichnen. Er oder sie wurde schließlich nicht dafür bezahlt und gibt lediglich seine bzw. ihre persönliche Meinung mit Pro und Contra wieder. Ein kurzer Hinweis, dass das Produkt zugeschickt oder kostenlos gestellt wurde, schadet jedoch nicht.
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.

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.


I have heard good things about all three but also am a bit skeptical of some of the reviews. I have a social enterprise based around my company as well and so I think it will be an easy sell for affiliates, so, just as important as the functioning of the app is the actual access to affiliates who are willing to work with us. In this sense, Refersion seems great with everything they are doing!
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.
Influencer marketing is extremely popular on social media. If you’re hoping to raise brand awareness in a short amount of time, choose the platform your audience spends the most time on and partner with influencers they’re likely to follow. The following examples focus on the three main platforms for influencer marketing: Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
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.
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!
There are dozens of affiliate marketing programs available which you can sign up with. Therefore, you need to choose the correct niche for you. If you known to trend on Instagram because of fashion, then you should choose a fashion affiliate program. However, if your Instagram followers follow you because of fitness, then you should to go for the fitness affiliate program. In a nutshell, always choose a program which your audience will relate well with.

Can you boast a solid number of followers? If not, it’s high time to work on it. Stay away from fake followers and bots as they could undermine the genuinity of your Instagram profile and cause a very unpleasant user experience. Your task is to attract dedicated followers who will truly like and trust you. With these quick social media marketing tips in play, you will easily get things done.


Innerhalb der Story-Funktion selbst gibt es noch weitere Features, die die Reichweite deiner Story erhöhen. Da Instagram ähnlich wie die Muttergesellschaft Facebook von Usern dazu genutzt wird, um nach Brands, Shops und anderen professionellen Accounts zu suchen und neue relevante Kanäle zu entdecken, solltest du die zur Verfügung stehenden Features innerhalb deiner Story nutzen. Dadurch erhöhst die deine Reichweite und erreichst mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit Instagrammer, die bislang noch nicht auf deinen Account aufmerksam geworden sind. Dazu gehören:


The main distinction now between affiliate and influencer marketing is simply the channel itself and the way the influencer is paid. Affiliate marketing sees affiliates paid based on web traffic performance (CPA) while influencer marketing sees influencers often paid flat fees upfront in return for social traffic performance. Brands now have visibility into the same metrics for both strategies and can access indicators of performance and traffic via Google Analytics for web-based publishers and Instagram Insights for social based publishers. Despite these similarities, influencer and affiliate marketing are still referred to as two separate strategies and are often managed by different teams in the same organization.
Another great way to get the most out of Instagram influencers in your affiliate program is to host a product giveaway with them. Influencers love running giveaways because they receive excellent engagement from them and gain a lot of new followers in the process. When you structure the giveaway with the influencer you do want to make sure that it’s not one sided and you get some new followers for your social media accounts as well. At the end of the day, it’s a great way to get some new followers and get some great marketing out there for the cost of your product, which is usually a brand’s preferred currency.
Idealerweise erstellst du einen spezifischen Content-Kalender für deinen Account bei Instagram. So kannst du wöchentlich oder sogar monatlich deine Beiträge planen. Dafür kannst du auf bestimmte Tools wie zum Beispiel Planoly, Schedugram oder Onlypult zurückgreifen. Diese Programme haben jeweils eine kostenlose Testphase, sodass du ausprobieren kannst, ob es dir beim regelmäßigen Posten behilflich ist.
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.
