If you haven’t already checked out my NEW free Wolf Millionaire Webinar I suggest you take the time to join and watch it. I outline and explain all the different ways you can make money using Instagram. Almost all of them DON’T require you to have a business, product or service in order to make money! At the end of my webinar I will send you a link to my updated FREE 35 Page Instagram guide.
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!
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!

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.

British celebrity chef and restaurateur, Jamie Oliver has over 6.2 million followers on Instagram, making him one of the most popular food influencers. Jamie Oliver is popular for his chain of restaurants, his TV shows, and his cookbooks. His Instagram is full of delicious-looking pictures of food as well as some occasional personal photographs that he adds.

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/
Continuing the conversation about engagement, when recruiting influencers, review which posts garner the most comments. Are the most popular posts personal ones with animals, quotes or kids? Does the influencer get engagement on sponsored, product specific or affiliate posts? What type of comments do the posts receive? For instance, if the comments refer to the individual’s beauty or the creative aspect of the photo, it will generate fewer sales than posts where the followers ask specific questions about the product.
Trovare programmi affiliate, poi, è ancora più facile. O si cerca l’esistenza di programmi in settori e per brand specifici, oppure ci si iscrive gratuitamente a portali di affiliate marketing in cui poter aderire a svariati programmi. Tra questi segnalo: Shareasale, Tradedoubler, Awin e molti altri (una semplice ricerca online ti restituirà decine e decine di portali in cui trovare programmi affiliate divisi per categorie merceologiche).
Influencer networks are companies that connect bloggers and influencers with brands. Some will have you apply for campaigns yourself while others will contact you if they have a brand who’s interested in you. For those networks where you apply yourself, they’ll have either a web platform or a phone app where you go in and look at all of the open campaigns and apply to those that interest you. Sometimes they’ll let you come up with a pitch that includes a rate you decide on yourself, other times it will be a fixed rate and you can decide if this amount is worth the effort of applying for and then, if you get picked, doing the work involved. Influencer networks can be a great tool, especially when you’re first starting out and want the chance to work with some bigger brands that might not yet have you on their radar.

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.

Fohr Card: Registrieren Sie Ihr Instagram, Blog, YouTube-Kanal und andere soziale Plattformen, um eine Influencer Card zu erstellen. Diese zeigt Ihre unterschiedlichen Profile und Ihre Reichweite an, sodass Marken Sie finden können. Sie erhalten zudem Zugang zu einer Liste von Marken und deren Wünsche, so können Sie die Initiative ergreifen und diese ansprechen.
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.
Customers love promotions and deals. Instagrammers are no exception. What’s the point to paying the full price if you can get a couple percent off? Offering coupon codes is a good way to increase your following and generate more sales. There’s good news for affiliates who want to run exclusive coupons without providing a specific link. Some coupon codes don’t require a click to be tracked by affiliate networks.  

Offer More than Just Instagram Expertise – Employers will often want all of their social media platforms managed for them. If you can offer social media marketing and management across a range of platforms you will be in much more of a demand. A quick Google search will bring up a range of online courses to help get you started as a social media guru.
an affiliate (Pay Per Call) offer pay you $9.66 per each call , just deliver the user who want to register with his Name and Tel Number on the LP and gets called by the call center. At that point the pixel is fired. so I think this type of affiliate program will monetize your blog and that’s only for one offer. I think it makes perfect sense for me.
Mit Instagram Geld verdienen ist garnicht so schwer. Man muss halt - wie so oft im Leben - irgendwo anfangen. Der aus meiner Sicht wichtigste Aspekt ist bei Instagram jedoch die Authentizität von Inhalten und Followern. Wer mit geklauten Fake-Bildern oder gekauften Followern Geld verdienen will, der wird nicht all zu weit kommen. Vielleicht klappt es kurzfristig. Ein nachhaltiges Modell ist aber immer empfehlenswerter. Weitere Geschäftsmodelle um online Geld verdienen zu können findest du auch hier.
Hello, I am very new to Shopify and am looking for ways to promote my site. Love the idea of IG influencers. I already have an IG account which I opened so I could hear from my Grandchildren (really do not know how to use it) , can I open a second account strictly for a business? I have been on the site and cannot find any information about opening a second account. Thanks for any advice and this is wonderful information that is being shared on this blog.
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.
If you are just getting started, it is a perfectly fine strategy to come up with special offers for influencers. One such offer could be giving them 5% (or some other number) lifetime commissions on sales made by affiliates who sign up due to them. Another idea could be to consider relaxing some of the terms for followers of these early influencers. Also, you could consider offering exclusive affiliate tools to select influencers.
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.
Swipe up! Verlinke Produkte und Infos: Stories sind eine wahre Bühne für Marketer, Firmen und jegliche Art von Promotion. Wenn du ein Produkt oder etwas Anderes in deiner Story per Video oder Foto anpreist, kannst du die dazugehörige Website verlinken. So können die Nutzer, wenn sie die Story anschauen, nach oben wischen und gelangen direkt zu dem Produkt. Also swipe up!
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.

Shopping on Instagram allows brands to add shoppable tags to their images. As you can see from the image above, these tags contain a product’s name and price. However, if Instagrammers click on a tag, extra information about this product will be displayed on their screen. Importantly, and super excitingly for eCommerce stores, a View on Website call to action button will also be displayed with the extra product info. This button will link directly to the product page on the brand’s online shop.
The easiest way to get a lot from your influencer partners in your affiliate program is to set up a compensation plan with them where they’re paid a flat amount of money in exchange for promoting your products or services on their feed. Most influencers do not like working on a commission basis. They would much rather get cash upfront. If your brand were willing to do this, this would be the best way to get their attention. You could even work out a zero commission deal with them where they don’t earn commission from the sales they refer at all. If the influencer is really powerful, you might even come out ahead despite the upfront risk.
Zeigt ein Influencer auf seinem Instagram-Account ein Produkt, das er oder sie selbst gekauft hat und schwärmt davon, ist das normalerweise keine Werbung, sondern eine persönliche Empfehlung. Ein Instagram-Post mit oder über ein bestimmtes Produkt gilt erst dann als Werbung, wenn der Influencer dafür „belohnt“ wird, indem er also für die Produktvorstellung bezahlt oder anderweitig entlohnt wird. Ein Hinweis, dass es sich um ein selbstgekauftes Produkt handelt, vermeidet Missverständnisse.
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 that we have understood who an Instagram Influencer is, let’s take a look at the  most popular Instagram influencers these days. You can be in the search of daily inspiration or simply wanting to follow the most popular personalities on Instagram. Regardless, Instagram offers a wide variety of content and influencers that anyone can choose from based on your own preferences. We created a top 10 list of Instagram Influencers based on their followers.
Once you reach a certain online presence, brands (or their PR firms) will naturally start to reach out to you. Always make sure that your e-mail address is easy to find, as per step number 2. Not every brand that reaches out to you will fit your aesthetic or your own personal brand. Don’t say yes to just anyone because they’re willing to pay you. Make sure the brands you promote align with your aesthetic and principles. Your sponsored posts should be authentic and you should only promote products you truly believe in and use yourself.

Great insight! Big brands are now into micro-influencers as they have more real engagement with real followers which they can market effectively. You can use a tool like an engagement rate calculator from Phlanx.com to know the interaction activity of a micro-influencer. You can also use an influencer directory to speed up the process in looking for the right influencers to work with.


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!
Before you can even begin to think about monetizing your blog or social media, you’ll need to grow your online presence. Get readers to your blog and followers to your social media accounts. I wrote up a detailed post on how to start and grow a lifestyle blog here and how to grow your Instagram account here. If you’re looking at a different type of blog or a different social media platform, a lot of what I wrote would probably still apply but I would also google around to see the best ways to grow a blog in your niche and any other social media accounts you’re focusing on.
Hi Stef, so sorry to hear you still haven’t gotten your money back. Ugh how frustrating! After the fact I’ve heard several not-so-great accounts of Modern Thrive so I am definitely much more careful now. I’ve reported her as well to the Consumer Protection Agency and to Instagram, but I’m not sure it’s helped. At least in terms of content, I’ve now covered everything I would have covered during the workshop and lots more in these three posts. It’s the least I can do!
Du weißt, was deinem Publikum gefällt. Du kannst dir mit diesem Wissen diverse kreative Marketing-Aktionen einfallen lassen. Organisiere zum Beispiel ein Gewinnspiel oder eine Verlosung. Beispielsweise können Follower etwas gewinnen, wenn sie einen Freund unter einem Post markieren, etwas reposten oder eine Story mit deiner Firmenerwähnung oder Markennennung hochladen. Dennoch solltest du darauf bedacht sein, dass die Geschenke immer noch zielgruppenrelevant sind. Ansonsten läufst du Gefahr, dass User dein Profil abonnieren, aber nach dem Ende des Gewinnspiels wieder abspringen. Deshalb sollten die Gewinne weiterhin einen thematischen Zusammenhang zu deiner Dienstleistung darstellen.
Of course, you could continuously change that link every time you post about a new affiliate product, but how annoying + time-consuming is that?! Plus, changing the link in your bio to a new affiliate link every time you post won’t allow you to drive traffic to any previously posted links, so this method isn’t super effective at increasing commissions.
