Thank you Sina for this blogging tips, I had registered for your professional lifestyle blogging workshop at Modern Thrive that was cancelled, I was disappointed, and I know it had nothing to do with you. So I am glad you provide all this info. I am still waiting for Modern Thrive to reimburse me, others are waiting too !! I can now see some negative reviews from instructors and attendees about Modern Thrive and as a side note, I would advise you to not do business with them anymore. Thanks for all the great info you provide, and your beautiful site and Instagram account.
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.
Loyal audiences averaging in millions of subscribers for influencers all over social media have proven that their followings can convert into sales. Affiliate marketing ties into this, how? Performance-based marketing is often referred to as another term for affiliate marketing in which individuals are given customized links to track any sales generated from their promotional posts. From each of those sales, they are awarded via a commission percentage, flat dollar amount, or both. The ease of publisher customization, tracking URLs and commission payouts associated with affiliate marketing have been encouraging to influencers everywhere.
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/
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.
Ein gutes Beispiel ist Daniel Arnold, der einst, laut Forbes-Interview, "dreimal am Tag Toast gegessen hat", weil er sich nichts anderes leisten konnte. Jetzt verdient er bis zu $15.000 am Tag mit seinen teilweise kontroversen Fotos. Wenn es schon Nachfrage nach Ihren Produkten gibt, ist es an Ihnen, Ihrem Publikum zu ermöglichen, Ihre Fotos zu kaufen.
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!
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:
LIVESTRONG is a popular health and wellness site. They provide readers with content to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. They don’t sell products on their site, but sites like these are able to promote products, like yours, on their site and generate an income based on the purchases their audience makes on your site. Choose affiliates whose content closely matches your product, so that site visitors are already primed and interested to take the next step and click through.
Keep in mind that even with offers to pay these Influencers, it’s still a numbers game (though money definitely talks). So keep sending these emails out and you’ll get responses soon enough. Start with a goal of 25 emails a week. It’s normal to get only several response from these emails, so don’t worry about low response rates too much. Tweak your pitch and keep at it.
der Instagram Blogger y verweist unter dem geposteten Bild auf den Link in der Biografie, beispielsweise, dass das Kleidungsstück der Firma y auf seinem Online Blog zu finden ist. Klickt der User auf den Link in der Biografie, sieht anschließend das Kleidungsstück auf dem Online Blog, klickt erneut das Bild an, wird er direkt zum Online Shop der Firma y weitergeleitet. An dieser Stelle bindet der Blogger y einen Affiliate-Link ein. Kauft der Besucher das zuerst auf Instagram gesichtete Kleidungsstück, erhält der Blogger als Affiliate von der Firma x eine Provision für die Vermittlung.
Coupon codes have always been an effective way to get people to buy something. Influencers like @cassieandrewsstyle has a product photograph, and in the blurb she includes a coupon. If it is an exclusive coupon code, then it has more draw because the discount is better than a normal coupon code. Not all coupon codes require a click to be tracked by an affiliate network, which is great news for these affiliates who want to promote an exclusive code but don’t want to include a link.
Eine etwas aufwendigere Methode der Instagram-Monetarisierung ist der Verkauf exklusiver Artikel, zum Beispiel T-Shirts oder eBooks. Letztere müssen erstellt werden, beziehungsweise man muss jemanden mit der Erstellung beauftragen, was natürlich mit Kosten und/oder Zeit verbunden ist. Auch T-Shirts muss jemand designen; im Anschluss können sie über spezielle Webseiten wie z.B. Teezily direkt verkauft werden, ohne dass man sie selbst drucken und versenden muss. Der Nachteil: Man erhält weniger Geld als für selbstgedruckte Shirts, jedoch sollte der geringere Aufwand diesen Nachteil ausgleichen.
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.
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.”
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.
At a direct conversion of $39/month subscription, you will receive $19.50/month commission at 50% each month. While you are sending traffic and referrals, you will receive $19.50 every month until that 1 sale cancels. In addition, they may sign up as affiliates through your referral and you will be able to see who you referred that signed up. We will also pay you an additional 5% of your referred affiliate’s commissions!
The bulk of the money that I earn through blogging and Instagram is through sponsored collaborations. Essentially, a brand or shop will provide me with one or more products and I will incorporate them into an Instagram or blog post (or two, or three). How do you go about getting sponsored collaborations? By working with brands that reach out to you and/or by reaching out to your favourite brands to see if they want to collaborate.
Mit diesen elf Strategien kannst du dein Marketing auf Instagram optimieren. Um sicherer im Umgang und den verschieden Möglichkeiten zu werden, ist es zudem ratsam, dass du die App selbst verwendest und dir einen täglichen Überblick über das Geschehen auf der Plattform verschaffst. So behältst du aktuelle Entwicklungen und Trends im Überblick und kannst gegebenenfalls mitziehen.

Warum der Hashtag Werbung ausreicht, bleibt mir nach wie vor ein Rätsel. Ich mein, warum zwingt man die ganzen “Influencer” nicht dazu, klar und deutlich Werbung oder Anzeige zu schreiben, wenn sie dort schon mit Beiträgen Geld verdienen? Ein Hashtag ist nur ein Hashtag von vielen und viele hängen das #Werbung auch nur am Ende, bei all den anderen Hashtags mit dran. Ganz merkwürdige Regelung, wie ich finde.
Ben & Jerry´s ist ein US-amerikanischer Speiseeishersteller. Mit über 500.000 Abonennten auf Instagram postet das Unternehmen regelmäßig Beiträge (linkes Bild), dazu zählen Rezepte oder spezielle Eissorten der Marke (mittiges Bild). Außerdem nutzt die Firma Instagram, um beispielsweise gemeinsam mit Greenpeace auf Missstände in der Ölindustrie aufmerksam zu machen.
I have to agree with @Beatrix Willius…maybe I missed the whole point of this experiment. I have nothing against beautiful women promoting anything. (I’m a huge UFC fan) but based on your experiment I have to assume you’re only interested in getting leads from wealthy male entrepreneurs? There are quite a few of us females with lots of cash to invest as well.
