There’s a lot of guys like Dan Bilzerian who’ve built significant followings from Instagram. Another one worth keeping an eye on is Timothy Skyes. His brand on Instagram is a bit tamed down when you compare it to Dan but still has done well for his business. I think Instagram is a great opportunity for personal branding but it’s important to ensure that your brand is aligned with what you’re actually all about.

Beyonce fell from the second spot to the fourth on the list of Instagram accounts with the most followers. The extremely popular American singer currently has 109 million followers. Her posts have high engagement, with most posts bringing in over a million likes and countless comments. Beyonce normally posts pictures of herself, also including her family at times. She famously used her Instagram platform to reveal that she was pregnant with twins with husband Jay Z, which made headlines worldwide.

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.
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.

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. This Instagram foodie influencer has a YouTube channel with over 400k subscribers and over 1.1 million people follow him on Instagram.
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).

Since Instagram started in 2010, influencers have flocked to the platform to increase their audience, traffic, followers and engagement. With 29% of Instagram’s top posts coming from influencers or brand ambassadors, they are dominating the game when it comes to user generated content, and with statistics showing that Instagram has over 700 million monthly users it is now over twice the size of twitter. This isn’t something that should be ignored, especially for brands when they are looking at Instagram affiliate marketing strategies.
Ich habe mich dafür entschieden, hinter jedem Affiliate-Link ein Sternchen * einzufügen. Ganz oben oder in der Sidebar in meinen Blogs und Affiliate-Sites steht dann die Erklärung (* = Affiliatelinks/Werbelinks). „Affiliatelink“ als Begriff dürfte dem durchschnittlichen Internet-Nutzer eher unbekannt sein und ist damit rechtlich nicht sicher. Es gab z.B. Gerichtsentscheidungen bzgl. der Kennzeichnung „sponsored by“, was als nicht ausreichend befunden wurde. Das dürfte auch auf „Affiliatelink“ zutreffen. Deshalb gebe ich hier zudem „Werbelink“ an.
Choose either an existing post and select Edit, or create a new post. Click on the image where you would like to add a shoppable tag. Enter the name of the product you would like to tag, and then select it as it appears in the search box. You can drag the tag around the screen to ensure it doesn’t block too much of the image. Once finished, Preview the image, and then select Done > Share.
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.
How exciting that you just started your blogging journey! Hopefully my post has helped steer you in the right direction (here’s the more direct blogging post: http://happygreylucky.com/how-to-start-and-grow-a-successful-lifestyle-blog-in-10-steps/). Other than what I wrote there I would just say stay true to yourself and make sure you’re passionate about what you’re posting. And keep at it! It can be pretty daunting at first but, if you stick with it consistently, hopefully you’ll be able to find some traction.
A common influencer marketing advertisement is where the brand sends the influencer a photo or ad and asks them to repost it on their feed. This is effective with getting a specific message out to that influencer’s followers; however, it’s not personalized at all. This specific influencer has built up their following because they like the posts that he or she puts on their feed. They aren’t as likely to engage with a random ad. That said, if the influencer themselves was in this ad then they may be more likely to engage. This is where free products come in.
Technically this should go before #7 and #8 because you need to figure out your rates before you can do sponsored content. That said, most sponsored content starts out as free gifting, which means you don’t actually need to know rates in the beginning since you’ll just be getting free product in exchange for your Instagram and blog posts. I also wanted to talk about sponsored content and influencer networks before I get into rates because I’ve had two very different experiences with the two when it comes to how much they pay.
Hi Breno! Thanks for reading my post. How to create engaging content for influencers is a great idea for a post all on its own! It’s a tough line to walk because, of course, you want your post to translate to sales, but you also don’t want people to immediately shut off and scroll past you because they know your post is an ad. Thus, my short answer would be to work on including some sort of call to action within the photo. Make the photo engaging and encourage people to like and/or comment. Perhaps some sort of contest? Keep us posted on how it goes and what you decide to do. Cheers!

We’ll use an example of a fictional fashion influencer, and we’ll call her Sally. Sally lives in Los Angeles and has around a million subscribers across her primary social media channels, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat. Now let’s pretend that you’re an advertiser for a boutique clothing line with a store located along the coast in Orange County looking to tap into a younger niche market. Influencers like Sally would be great to add leverage to your marketing since her promoting your brand would automatically gain credibility from her subscribers, in addition to increasing your customer base and conversions.
Vantaggi per tutti: l’azienda Daniel Wellington ottiene una massa di pubblicazioni sui propri prodotti, con conseguente notorietà e tracciamento certo del ROI dell’iniziativa; gli affiliati hanno un motivo evidente per promuovere gratuitamente Daniel Wellington (in cambio di commissioni); i clienti finali possono godere di sconti da spendere nell’e-commerce online del brand.
Paying to get men to look at pictures of models doesn’t seem like much of a challenge. And if it doesn’t align with your core values then isn’t that admitting that the end justifies the means? Given your success and already recognizable name why not just start clean, avoid alienating many Instagramers with the bait and switch and low hanging fruit tactic? Think you got bad advice on this one.

Einige User halten es für angemessen, ihre Posts mit dem Hashtag #ad zu kennzeichnen. In Deutschland ist das nicht ausreichend. Auch #sponsored funktioniert nicht. Es muss sich um eine klare, deutsche Aussage halten: #anzeige oder #werbung sind das Mindestmaß. Besser ist es, im ersten Kommentar oder am Ende des Beitrags auf die Kooperation hinzuweisen.

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.
Tip #1 Post links to your landing pages and websites within your stories. Now before you get all like, but I need to have like 10,000 followers to be able do that. Let me give you a strategy to help get you there ASAP. The strategy I prefer for getting 10,000 followers takes a little longer than follow/unfollow, but it gets high quality active followers, and that’s Gary Vee’s $1.80 strategy. Basically with this strategy you search up 10 hashtags in your niche and and leave your 2 cents, AKA a comment on the top 9 posts for each hashtag. I highly recommend doing this over the follow, unfollow method because you can really build a strong connection which of course is great for sales, but if you’re a little more impatient feel free to do the follow, unfollow method with an app like captivate to speed up the process.

Kann man als Publisher bei Instagram Geld verdienen? Bisher ist das vor allem Influencern gelungen: Modeblogger und andere Sternchen machen mit Schleichwerbung für Fitnessprogramme und Gesundheits-Tees viel Geld. Aber immer wenn ein neues großes Ökosystem entsteht, kommen schlaue Affiliates und versuchen ein eigenes Business aufzubauen. Bei Instagram geht das jetzt gerade erst los und wir haben uns die Goldgräber der ersten Stunde angeschaut und analysiert.


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.
Don’t Buy Fake Followers – Although brands might be impressed at first glance with your follower numbers, it won’t take long for them to realize that your audience isn’t worth paying for. A few clicks to check on engagement levels and how your followers have responded to your posts will tell them that you have bought your followers, not organically grown your audience. This isn’t the type of audience that will get results for businesses, and consequently, people won’t want to pay you to promote their posts.
Next, on your Facebook page, select Shop > Add Product. Here you can add product images as well as the name, price, description, and the URL for the product page or checkout page. Don’t skimp on the description here, as these are the details your audience will see on Instagram when they tap for more information on the product. The more information you provide, the more likely Instagrammers will click through to your site and make a purchase.

Er ist der Mitbegründer von Neil Patel Digital. Das Wall Street Journal zählt ihn zu den Top-Influencern im Web. Laut Forbes ist er einer der 10 besten Vermarkter und laut Entrepreneur Magazine hat er eins der 100 erfolgreichsten Unternehmen gegründet. Neil ist ein New York Times Bestseller Autor. Er wurde bereits vor seinem 30. Lebensjahr von Präsident Obama und vor seinem 35. Lebensjahr von den United Nations als Top 100 Unternehmer ausgezeichnet.

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:
Das Gleiche gilt für den Fall, wenn Du Anzeigen in den Ferien aufgeben willst. Diese kosten im direkten Vergleich mehr als Werbeanzeigen, die Du an normalen Arbeitstagen schaltest. Du kannst die durchschnittlichen Kosten für Instagram Werbung senken, wenn Du der Plattform erlaubst, dass Du Deine Anzeigen auch in weiteren Netzwerken platziert. Des Weiteren solltest Du in regelmäßigen Abständen Deine Anzeigen optimieren, denn dadurch kannst Du die Kosten senken.
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.
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.

One thing I found odd with Clickbank is that to register, your IP address needs to match the country of the home address you are inputting. If you are traveling around, this makes it hard to register for an account. My application was immediately denied because although my home address is in Canada, my IP was coming from Europe as I was currently traveling when I applied for Clickbank.


Wichtig ist hierbei natürlich, dass die Verbindung zwischen den Click, Lead oder Sale und dem Affiliate festgehalten und getrackt wird, um sicherzustellen, dass die Provision ausgezahlt wird. Die Links, die der Affiliate veröffentlicht sind aus diesem Grunde mit einem individuellen und einzigartigen Code versehen, der diese Verbindung herstellt. Wichtig dabei:
On the other hand this experiment could be helpful if taken with a large grain of salt – I can see how this can inspire marketing ideas for consumer /lifestyle brands. I’ll be looking into some of the things you mentioned for a consumer client of mine who’s demographic is perfectly in the Instagram space. Minus the bikini models though – that’s just not my style 😉
Auf der sicheren Seite sind Influencer und Unternehmen, wenn der Hinweis auf die Kooperation sofort ersichtlich ist, also am Anfang des Bildtextes platziert wird. Gerne wird das Hashtag mit dem Hinweis ganz unten in den Hashtags versteckt oder gar in der Kommentarspalte. Doch das kann schiefgehen: Das Oberlandesgericht Celle verurteilte einen Drogeriemarkt, weil ein Influencer eine Kooperation mit dem Unternehmen ungenügend gekennzeichnet hatte (Urteil vom 08.03.2017, 13 U 53/17). Er verwendete das Hashtag #ad und setzte es am Ende des Beitrags, an zweiter Stelle innerhalb einer Hashtagwolke. Das sah das Oberlandesgericht als nicht hinreichend an.

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.

One thing I found odd with Clickbank is that to register, your IP address needs to match the country of the home address you are inputting. If you are traveling around, this makes it hard to register for an account. My application was immediately denied because although my home address is in Canada, my IP was coming from Europe as I was currently traveling when I applied for Clickbank.
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.
Tip #3 is to consistently post valuable content to your followers. Now valuable content will be different in each niche, but a good rule of thumb is to post inspiring, helpful, informative or motivational pictures and videos at least once a day. If you’re struggling to come with ideas on what to post just go look at what other influencers in your niche are posting, and post similar content. Of course you’ll want to make it unique, but looking at other accounts is a good way to figure out what type of posts the people in your niche respond to the most. An important thing for to mention here is to avoid making your account a pitch fest. Of course your goal is to get people to click the links in your bio, but if you make every other post about an offer or a link all your going to do is piss people off, and ultimately lose followers. I’ve found that one promotional post per week is the sweet spot to not piss off your followers, but make sure they know you have an offer out there.
I find some of comments about this post typical excessive western self-indulgence. While I personally don’t believe in objectifying women. I don’t think Neil did any of that. His goal was to figure out how to best leverage Instagram. He looked at some of the most effective users and attempted to duplicate their success. He then, free of charge, shared the results with you and all some of us have got as a response is to scold and berate him. You’re getting free information from the experimentation of a world class expert. Get over yourself. These women are already on instagram, have a following and post attractive photos for the world to see. Neil didn’t coax them into doing something they aren’t already doing. Some of you instead of contributing to the experiment and the conversation by offering constructive advice, such as, “I don’t think this methodology works well with your brand”; instead choose to take the opportunity to put Neil down. The amount of unnecessary self-righteousness is ridiculous. You don’t spend money with Neil, yet you walk away with extremely valuable information and all you’ve got to offer is a huge hissy fit. Get over yourselves.
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.
