Mit der Instagram-Geschichte haben sich gewisse Tricks entwickelt, wie ein Account mit wenig Aufwand mehr Follower generieren kann. Viele der Möglichkeiten sind bereits in den anderen Tipps untergebracht. Allgemein lautet die Devise “Wer mitmacht, gewinnt”. Dazu zählen das aktive Kommentieren und Liken anderer Bilder, das Folgen anderer Profile oder das richtige Einsetzen von Hashtags. Aktuelle Trends sollten bei dem Steigern der Bekanntheit immer berücksichtigt werden.
As an affiliate manager, the evolution of influencers in the performance marketing space is a trend I have kept a close eye on. Early on, I saw the value of content affiliates, but remained a minority among my peers. Now, the tide has changed. Influencer marketing has infiltrated the affiliate marketing world. Merchants see the value of influencers’ reviews for conversions and requests for affiliate managers to recruit influencers have grown exponentially. Affiliate managers now spend much of their time diligently crafting custom emails with the hopes of recruiting the next top performing influencer. However, many of these hours are wasted because of one common mistake. Many managers overlook the first essential step in the recruitment process: creating the prospect list.  An unqualified list results in failure, no matter how brilliant your recruitment outreach.

Instagram macht es Menschen wahrlich nicht einfach, Geld über die Plattform zu verdienen. Auf der Profilseite hat man lediglich die Möglichkeit, einen einzigen Link zu integrieren. Dieser führt im Regelfall auf eine Webseite. Im Gegensatz zu Facebook, Twitter und Co. ist der Link in der Bio tatsächlich der einzige Verweis, den man einfügen kann. Links in Beiträgen können nicht angeklickt werden, da Instagram sie als Text darstellt.
Earnings are what matter to most affiliates. Our commissions indicate how we are performing, which is why affiliate marketing is also called performance and commissioned-based marketing. You can monitor traffic to your website in which case Google Analytics will do the trick. To learn more about your audience, measure reach, and track engagement, check out Instagram Insights (for business profiles), Hootsuite Analytics, and Iconosquare.
I think the whole thing with it now being paid for has ruin what it is. It was a chance that every day people got a chance to feel special and be known just for doing what they do…eat out, shop, create etc. Now its just another platform in which experts have taken over and turned into a platform for making money which ruin what it is…. cant just be liked for who you are now people are projecting this “perfect” life bullshit and I’m so over it… Even when celebrities started getting on there it was cool because you got to see a personal side to them and once again they sell out for money (or pay someone to do it for them) and once again just turned into another social outlet taken over by fake and rich people… lame

Seit Mitte 2016 kann das Nutzerprofil auf Instagram in einen Business-Account umgewandelt werden. Mit einem geschäftlichen Profil können die Nutzer auf spezielle Statistiken zugreifen, diverse Kontaktmöglichkeiten hinzufügen und können Social Media Werbung direkt in der mobilen Anwendung erstellen. Dadurch eignet sich Instagram bestens für Marketing-Maßnahmen. Auf Instagram Werbung schalten können die Nutzer ohne einen großen Aufwand. Die Werbung erscheint zwischen den einzelnen Beiträgen in Form von Videos oder Fotos und wird auf die Nutzer und deren Vorlieben individuell abgestimmt. Seit Anfang 2018 können deutsche Nutzer von Instagram auf der Plattform einkaufen. Durch ein einfaches Antippen der markierten Produkte auf den Werbebildern erhalten die Nutzer weitere Informationen und Preise. Das Ganze funktioniert im Grunde wie ein visuelles Schaufenster.
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.
From a business/profit perspective, you may think this makes sense…but my guess is you’ve alienated most of the women out there. Guns and boobs? Really? I’m an entrepreneur/adventurer but an envious lifestyle to me wouldn’t just be about buying people. It really isn’t all about money. And while many check him out, many also find Dan the epitome of all that’s vain and wrong with the world. You’ve lost this business subscriber by your association.
Create an Engaged Community – An engaged community, that comment on, like, and share your posts is key to becoming a successful influencer. To create this type of community you will need to put in the work – constantly and consistently post high-quality images that interest and inspire your audience, ask questions, respond to comments, and become a well-known figure within your niche.
…as an experiment, though, it certainly is interesting. Your work is highly respected (including by our company, which has many women working across a number of areas) but I must admit, I’m glad it was just an experiment. There are many facets to advertising, and this covered one type–the living vicariously through perfectly-presented images of luxury.
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!
Mit diesen Werbeanzeigen kannst Du Deinen Feed-Content auf Instagram Stories deutlich aufwerten. Das Besondere an den speziellen Anzeigen ist, dass Deine Bilder oder Videos den kompletten Bildschirm einnehmen. Die Story Ads bestehen aus Deinem Benutzernamen, dem Hinweis, einem Foto oder Video und aus einer optionalen Call-to-Action. Einen Beschreibungstext kannst Du nicht hinzufügen. Durch die Story Ads verbindest Du Dich täglich mit den über 300 Millionen Nutzern der Instagram Stories. Instagram empfiehlt für die Story Ads eine Auflösung von 1.080 x 1.920 Pixel und beschränkt die Maximalgröße von Videos auf 4 GB und Bildern auf 30 MB.
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:
Auch bei Instagram kann man Affiliate-Links gekonnt integrieren. Zunächst muss ein neuer Beitrag veröffentlicht werden, der auf ein Produkt hinweist. Der Click-to-Action besteht darin, den User dazu zu bringen, auf den Link im Profil zu klicken. Um nicht nur einen Affiliate-Link zu promoten, gibt es folgenden Trick: Die Verwendung des Dienstes Linktree. Man verbindet ihn mit seinem Instagram-Konto und hat die Möglichkeit, eine persönliche Profilseite zu erstellen, auf der man mehrere Links einbindet. Sobald der User also auf den von Linktree generierten Verweis im Instagram-Profil klickt, landet er auf einer Seite, wo er mehrere Affiliate-Links anklicken kann. In der kostenpflichtigen Version können die Links sogar an den Veröffentlichungszeitpunkt des Posts geknüpft werden.
This aspect of Instagram marketing may take quite a while to complete. You might have to go through many posts and hashtags to find influencers that are a good fit to tell your brand’s story. But it’s worth investing time into this step to do it right– if you nail down the perfect Instagram influencers who cater to your specific target audience, you could enjoy a pretty good ROI on your marketing spend.
While affiliate marketing is nothing new in principle, it is fairly new to the world of Instagram. In many ways, the pairing is a match made in heaven. Instagram followers are more likely to engage with branded content than other social media users. Instagram celebrities from Kim Kardashian to the Beauty Boys have garnered millions of loyal followers thanks to influencer strategies that tell consistently compelling stories.
Auch wenn Instagram eine digitale Plattform der Interaktion darstellt, solltest du dennoch auf eine zwischenmenschliche Bindung zwischen deinen Followern und dir bedacht sein. Denn wenn du deinen Abonnenten offen und regelmäßig begegnest, entsteht zwangsweise eine vertrautere Beziehung. Dies ist insbesondere für dein Publikum wichtig, denn so steigerst du die Sympathie gegenüber der Firma und positionierst dich nahbar.
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.

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?
I’m a big Dan Bilzarian fan. I’m also a Neil Patel fan. But when the “who is Neil Patel” photos were shared with me I was disappointed. I felt cheated. Because what I was seeing was completely different than the brand I thought Neil Patel was. I was confused and didn’t trust what I was seeing. Rather than an educated marketing expert I saw a pig. First person I thought of was Dan Bilzarian, but that wasn’t s good thing only because it was against your brand. I didn’t trust what I saw. I then forwarded the photos to the person who referred me to your program, and she had the same reaction and said “That’s disgusting. I lost respect.” I’m glad you wrote this post to clarify the intention and restore your brand. Conclusion, your bread and butter know you as a marketing expert here to help them grow their business with your expertise and experience. You’ve built loyalty and respect in this way – protect your brand.
Brands like to see an example of the type of post you would create for them so make sure you have some samples posted. If you want to do reviews, review some of your favourite products (even if they’re not sponsored by the brand). If you want fashion brands to give you clothing for outfits posts, make sure you have lots of outfit posts with clothes you already own. If you want to get a hotel to comp your stay as a travel blogger, have posts from previous trips that highlight the hotel you stayed at (even if you paid for it yourself). Brands want to feel confident that the work you provide for them will be in line with their marketing goals and what better way to show them than with some samples of your previous work.

Viele bekannte Persönlichkeiten nutzen Instagram, um mit ihren Fans oder Bewunderern in Kontakt zu treten – Musiker, Künstler, Sportler, YouTuber und viele mehr. Auch sie nutzen die Plattform oftmals nicht nur als Fotoalbum persönlicher Momente oder als reines Portfolio ihrer Leistungen, sondern als Promotionskanal für eigene Projekte, andere Marken oder eigenständige Arbeiten.
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:
Instagram verändert sich gerade entscheidend. Facebook hat gerade selbst die Werbevermarktung für das Fotonetzwerk gestartet. Der große Vorteil für Werbekunden: Sie können ihre Beiträge mit Links versehen und so Reichweite auf die eigenen Angebote leiten. Die Verdienstmöglichkeiten für Instagram sind enorm: Derzeit verzeichnet das Netzwerk 400 Millionen monatlich aktive Nutzer und erwartetet einen Anzeigenumsatz von etwa 600 Millionen US-Dollar im Jahr 2015, der im nächsten Jahr auf über 1,5 Milliarden steigen soll. Es wird spannend zu beobachten sein, ob Instagram es noch lange zulassen wird, dass Andere auf der Plattform Geld verdienen, ohne dass Facebook einen Teil davon bekommt. Es könnte also mal wieder so sein, dass das Affiliate-Modell eine Zeit lang erfolgreich ist und dann wieder verschwindet. Die ersten Goldgräber stört diese Aussicht erst einmal nicht.
Was möchte dein Publikum überhaupt für Inhalte sehen? Da du nicht ein x-beliebiges Publikum ansprechen möchtest, sondern zielgruppengerichtete Inhalte liefern willst, ist diese Frage von großer Bedeutung. Mache dir Gedanken, um die Personen, die du mit deinem Account erreichen möchtest. Dafür ist es sinnvoll, Themenfelder von Interesse zu finden. Um diese zu entdecken, ist es von Nutzen eine Buyer-Persona zu kreieren. So hast du im Anschluss eine Vorstellung von den hauptsächlichen Interessen deiner Follower und kannst so einen idealen und vor allem spezifischen Content erstellen.
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.
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 #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.
YouTube – The Google Darling does not disappoint. Videos allow for optimal search engine optimization and engagement, a winning combination. In addition, the influencer can easily place affiliate links in the video description and create a CTA requesting followers to click on it. Lastly, YouTube makes it easy to contact the influencer in one step by revealing an email address. Why, thank you YouTube! When a niche YouTube account appears in my search results, a small victory dance ensues.

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 😉
Kimberly Kardashian West, American reality television personality and socialite has recently dropped down in rankings too. She fell from the third rank to number six currently with 104 million followers. She’s the most popular member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan on Instagram, posting mostly about herself, her family members, and her brand KKW Beauty.
The same holds true for video ads. As Mediakix reports, sponsored videos are commented on three times more than sponsored photos. Once uploaded, your post will be labeled ‘Sponsored’ and will show up in the news feed of those users who fit the profile to be the most interested in your offer. This way, Instagram aims to preserve the seamless look and feel of the feed, so that users are more willing to engage with it.
Sponsored Posts wurden 2013 in den USA eingeführt. Zu den ersten bekannten Marken gehörten damals, unter anderem, Michael Kors, Levis und General Electric. Seit dem 20. April 2015 gibt es Instagram Werbung und Sponsored Posts auch in Deutschland. Zunächst sollen die Werbeanzeigen nur von ausgewählten Unternehmen geschaltet werden, die bereits auf der Plattform aktiv sind. Damit will Instagram sicherstellen, dass die Unternehmen viele Follower haben und die Werbung “kreativ und interessant” sei.
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.
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).
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.
