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.
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.
Von 2014 bis 2018 ist die Zahl der monatlich aktiven User von 200 Millionen auf 800 Millionen gestiegen. Davon sind ganze 500 Millionen Nutzer täglich aktiv. Die Relevanz des Netzwerks ist für Marketer und Firmen offensichtlich nicht mehr von der Hand zu weisen. Anand Srinivasan berichtet auf Falcon, dass die verbrachte Zeit auf der Plattform jährlich um 80 Prozent steigt. Doch wie sticht man bei diesen hohen Nutzerzahlen aus der Masse heraus und kreiert eine erfolgreiche Instagram-Präsenz mit zielgruppengerichtetem Content und einer hohen Reichweite?
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 😉
Jetzt will in dem Bereich auch ein deutsches Startup mitspielen. StyleLike ist erst seit zwei Wochen online und war eigentlich als deutsches Liketoknow.it geplant – bevor der US-Dienst schnell auch hierzulande an den Start ging. Christian Doberschütz hat das Projekt auf Reisen mit seiner Frau in Thailand und Südamerika aufgezogen und dabei gemerkt, wie schwierig es ist, sich als Instagram-Tool bestätigen zu lassen: „Die Instagram-API ist die Grundlage für unser Projekt.“ Doch die Prüfung der einzelnen Projekte nimmt die Plattform offenbar sehr genau: „Instagram hat uns bei den ersten drei Versuchen ohne Begründung abgelehnt, erst beim vierten Versuch hat es dann geklappt“, erzählt StyleLike-Gründer Christian Doberschütz Online Marketing Rockstars.
If you want to target a specific group of people instead of your entire audience, then use affiliate marketing. If you’re launching a new product feature or an entirely new product that power users will be receptive to, use affiliate marketing to target specific sites that these power users spend time on. Instead of marketing to everyone, you speak to the people most likely to use your product.

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.

Das Posten von UGC ist deshalb so relevant, da Kunden sieben Mal häufiger von einer Marke kaufen, die andere Verbraucher vorschlagen. Wenn du auf deinem Account glückliche Konsumenten deines Produkts zeigen kannst, werden sich mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit mehr Menschen dafür entscheiden. Dies wird auch mit ein Grund dafür sein, weshalb Influencer-Marketing bei Instagram einen fruchtbaren Boden gefunden hat.

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.
As you can see, Instagram offers some genuine opportunities to make money online. Whether you want to become an Instagram influencer, sell physical products, photographs, or affiliate products, or become an Instagram expert in the freelancing field, there are possibilities for everyone. Whatever route you choose to go down, make sure you persevere, as the financial rewards can be more than worth it.
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 Kosten für Deine Instagram Werbung hängen von Deinen Gebotsstrategien ab. Du hast bei Instagram genau die gleiche Wahl wie bei Facebook und kannst Dich für unterschiedliche Strategien entscheiden. Zusätzlich hast Du die Wahl zwischen einer manuellen und einer automatischen Gebotseinstellung. Die Kalkulation der Kosten für Instagram Werbung erfolgt auf die gleiche Art und Weise wie bei Facebook. Der Angebotspreis ist besonders wichtig. Hast Du Dich für eine manuelle Gebotseinstellung entschieden, erhält Instagram den genauen Gebotsbetrag, den Du für Deine Werbeanzeige maximal bezahlen willst. Entscheidest Du Dich stattdessen für eine automatische Gebotseinstellung, muss die Plattform für Deine Werbeanzeige ein passendes Gebot auswählen und die Kosten für Instagram Werbung individuell kalkulieren.


Make sure your bio includes some good information about you or your company - you have 150 characters to show off what you’re about. Make sure you include your website link, and a way of contacting you as well - this is important for influencers, and also brands. At the moment it isn’t possible to search bios for keywords and hashtags, so don’t worry about using those in your bio.
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.

Affiliate Pro Tip: Use new posts in your Instagram feed to remind followers about your Instagram Story Highlights! If you share an affiliate related image, make sure you add a CTA into your caption that asks followers to check out your story highlight for more information! This way  you’re continuously directing traffic back to your affiliate offers.
It’s about damn time. I just saw your @whoisneilpatel a few days ago and wondered “Wait, did he just completely rebrand his IG?” I wondered because I followed your original IG page, but unfollowed it because, well, it’s boring (no offense haha) my friends already annoy me with pictures of their food. However, your whoisNeilPatel is effing awesome! (is this why you shaved your head?)… Living vicariously through that type of page is what keeps me entertained – and motivated. I think this is perfect for personal branding and brand awareness. I’m not in stocks, but i know who Timothy Sykes is because of Secret Entourage & IG, and if I plan to educate myself and learn, i’m going to search around through him first to further investigate my next steps. For me, i’ve grown our IG pages through advertising on other influencers IG page that may have an audience interested in my page. After building to thousands of followers, i’ve done “S4S” which is free and easiest way to grow your following. After a certain time, I just delete the picture of the other page. Just my .02

I don’t have experience with all that many influencer networks so I can’t give a comprehensive review or even list them all. Those that I’ve got decent to good experience with are Popular Pays (my favourite Instagram influencer app and where I got my very first paid gig last summer, with one of my favourite brands no less), Social Fabric (although most of their gigs are US only and they’re vigilant about that), Muse Find and Revfluence. I also signed up for the following networks, but haven’t gotten much (or even any) work through them: Collabor8, Collectively, IZEA, Linqia, Nichify, and TapInfluence. Some of these don’t pay well versus others I just haven’t been contacted much, which could be because I’m based in Canada and a lot of these influencer networks focus on US brands who want US influencers (even though my reach in the US is about the same as fellow US-based mom bloggers).
Instagram (IG) is many things. It has over 800 million users, and Instagrammers have deep pockets. For example, among adult users, 31 percent make over $75,000 annually. IG users “like” over 4.2 billion and share 95 million posts daily. Zuckerberg and company got the IG acquisition correct along with WhatsApp (the jury is still out on Oculus VR). IG is moving in the right direction and stomping on their competitors like Snap. Storylines like these make affiliate marketers drool except for one problem, IG is link-unfriendly.
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.
Wenn Nutzer deinen Account auf einem Foto, Video oder in ihrer Story verlinken, erhältst du eine Benachrichtigung. Das bietet für dich eine willkommene Grundlage für eine Marketingaktion. Denn so sehen zunächst die Follower der Person, die dich erwähnt hat, deinen Account, aber du kannst den Inhalt der Person auch reposten. Mit den nutzergenerierten Inhalten zeigst du Usernähe und bleibst mit deiner Zielgruppe in Verbindung.

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.
Travel blogger @Anna Everywhere has an Instagram full of stunning photo shoots in amazing locations around the world. She is incredibly stylish, and many people send her messages asking where she buys her clothes, so to help with that - even though this is not the focus point of the picture, she will include a link to the product below the image. The image below is from Waikiki, and she mentions her bikini after everything she has to say about the location. She also doesn’t link to products in every single post that she does.
I promote many products and services, so I wouldn’t want to use my link to market only one. On the other hand, you might be focused and very passionate about promoting one item. You could add your affiliate link—shortened, cloaked or branded—to your profile or create an account specifically for that item. For instance, you’re passionate about writing and want to promote Grammarly, a free grammar checker, and vocabulary enhancement app. You create an account called @awesomewriter and posts writing tips and motivational quotes. Your bio reads, “Improve your writing with this free software app. Click below to learn more. #Ad.”
