Pro Tipp: Mit deinen Fingern kannst du die Größe des Hashtag-Stickers ändern. Positioniere mithilfe dieser Möglichkeit die Sticker anschaulich in einem bestimmten Winkel passend zum Foto. So stellst du sicher, dass die Tags nicht stören. Trotzdem lässt du dir aber dennoch nicht die Möglichkeit entgehen, durch Hashtags deine Reichweite zu erhöhen. Um dennoch viele Tags in der Story zu verwenden, aber die Zuschauer nicht vom Inhalt abzulenken, kannst du bis zu zehn Hashtags integrieren, die aber hinter einem Emoji verstecken. OnlineMarketing.de-Bürohund Philly zeigt, wie’s geht:
Geotagging und Hashtags: Über den Sticker oben rechts kannst du Hashtags und Local Tags in deine Story einbauen und deine Reichweite erhöhen. Wie bereits erwähnt: Suche bewusst Tags aus und überlade die Story nicht mit zu vielen Stickern. Die Größe und die Position kannst du mit ziehenden Bewegungen deiner Finger individuell an das Bild oder Video anpassen. Oder verstecke die Hashtags hinter einem Emoji. Mit einem gelungenen Einsatz von Hashtags in deiner Story landest du womöglich in der dazugehörigen Hashtag Story und machst deinen Content einem viel größeren Publikum zugänglich.

Da man für das Setzen von Affiliate-Links und den Einbau von Affiliate-Bannern keine direkte Gegenleistung erhält, könnte man an dieser Stelle folgern, dass keine Kennzeichnung notwendig ist. Aber natürlich gibt es eine nachgelagerte Vergütung, die ohne das Setzen der Links und Banner nicht zustande kommen würde. Zudem würde man solche Affiliatelinks nicht setzen, wenn man nicht auch einen finanziellen Profit davon erwarten würde.
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.
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.
Affiliate marketing now faces a critical transition: with social media becoming increasingly shopper-friendly, bloggers are dropping their websites for Instagram fame. After previously relying on “publishers” to drive traffic for clients as part of an affiliate program, affiliate-focused agencies must now quickly get up to speed on new tactics, social platforms, and strategies to serve brands who are now seeking more comprehensive results from a diverse range of channels – not just web. With consumers swiping up on Instagram Stories to shop the looks of their favorite social media influencers, the convenience of shopping via social media is increasingly becoming the norm for shoppers looking to purchase on-the-go. Those affiliate marketers who are still only investing in website publishers and click-through metrics now run the risk of missing broad swaths of new customers and business on social.
To give you an idea of what sort of online presence will start to see sponsored content, I got my first Instagram collaboration request at around 5K followers (about 3 months in) and my first blog collaboration request after around two months (about 2,000 page views per month). Those were just for free product but it was still super exciting to get that first traction. My first paid collaboration was at around 14K on Instagram (about 7 months in) and on my blog at the 3 month mark (about 4,000 page views per month). Both of these were for around $100 and I only had a handful of collaborations per month (blog and Instagram combined) for a few months after those first paid gigs. My rates increased as I grew, of course, but my first full year of (Insta)blogging was definitely at an hourly rate well below minimum wage. The potential for earning decent money on blogging and Instagram is definitely there, it just takes a lot of time and effort before you see any return on investment, so to speak.
Can you boast a solid number of followers? If not, it’s high time to work on it.

Your task is to attract dedicated followers who will truly like and trust you. With these quick social media marketing tips in play, you will easily get things done.
Die Qualität der Werbeanzeigen und die Relevanz der Werbung sind ebenfalls wichtig. Instagram vergibt für jede Werbeanzeige eine bestimmte Punktzahl. Die Punkte drücken aus, wie relevant die Anzeige für Dein Zielpublikum ist und wie Deine Nutzer auf die Werbeanzeige reagieren. Die Punktezahl Deiner Werbeanzeige erhöht sich, wenn Deine Nutzer positiv auf die Anzeige reagieren. Die Punktezahl sinkt, wenn die Nutzer negativ auf die Werbeanzeige reagieren und diese ausblenden lassen. Werbeanzeigen mit einer höheren Punktzahl werden bevorzugt geschaltet. Instagram vergibt eine weitere Zahl für die Werbeanzeigen. Diese gibt genau an, wie stark die Plattform denkt, dass ein Nutzer eine bestimmte Aktion ausführt. Hast Du beispielsweise eine Werbeanzeige aufgegeben, bei der die Nutzer Deine Webseite besuchen sollen, stellt dies eine solche Aktion dar.
Wer auf Instagram unterwegs ist, stößt auf Profile, die sich besonderer Beliebtheit erfreuen. Sehr angesehen sind beispielsweise Mode-Blogger, die in regelmäßigen Abständen Bilder ihrer Outfits posten. Im Online Marketing bezeichnet man solche einflussreichen Personen als “Influencer” (da sie erheblichen Einfluss auf eine große Anzahl an Personen/Followern haben). Die Einbindung von Influencern für die eigene Marke ist logisch:

Genius doesn’t come from stagnation and the thing I respect about QuickSprout is that you’re willing to actually test things and then report back so we don’t have to. As much as we love to play upstanding citizen, it’s no secret that sex sells… especially on a visual platform like instagram. I think it’s very interesting and controversial that you explored its “value” in branding.
Schleichwerbung ist in Deutschland in allen Medien verboten. Geregelt ist das zum Beispiel im Rundfunkstaatsvertrag (§ 7, § 58), im Telemediengesetz (§ 6), im Pressekodex (Ziffer 7) und im Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb (§ 5a). Wer dagegen verstößt, kann von Mitbewerbern oder Aufsichtsbehörden wie den Landesmedienanstalten abgemahnt werden.
You’ve no doubt encountered affiliate marketing on the Internet without even realizing it. Lots of popular blogs and websites write about particular products and then link to Amazon or an online store. They receive commission money when you click on the link and buy the product. As an affiliate, the blog receives a little ‘tracking code’ from the product creator that enables them to know if you have bought the product.
Instagram – Instagram excels with brand exposure, but the UI makes it less likely that followers will click to purchase. The scrolling style of viewing posts as well as the link only being available in the bio lends itself to quick Likes and fewer clicks. However, I have seen some Instagram influencers succeed using Instagram Stories.Instagram Stories provide the personal one on one engagement feel that lends itself to conversions as well as an explanation on how followers can click on the affiliate link.

Once seen as a strategy distinct from affiliate programs, influencer marketing has been continually edging toward modern affiliate marketing. With the tracking and measurement of influencer marketing approximating the level of detail and sophistication that traditional affiliate marketing has achieved, savvy affiliates are now looking to foster thoughtful influencer campaigns that leverage the purchasing and reviewing power of social media stars.


When the giveaway ends and it’s time to send out your product to the winner, make sure you communicate directly with the winner themselves and try to get some additional marketing goodwill from this. You can ask the winner to post about their winning on their own social media pages so that their friends and family learn about your brand. You can also incentivize the winner to refer friends and family by providing them with additional discounts for doing so. If you’re not keen on giving away your product for free you could also host a contest that allows the winner to purchase your product but at a significant, one-time discount.
You could also set up a partial flat payment along with your commission payment. Many influencers don’t understand the true power of affiliate marketing and they need someone to guide them. If you can paint a picture on how they can earn so much more money on consistent referrals as opposed to one-time placements you might be able to get a discount on their flat fee.
Möchtest Du stattdessen ein Budget für die gesamte Dauer Deiner Werbekampagne festlegen, kannst Du individuell bestimmen, wie viel Geld Du für die Kampagne maximal ausgeben willst. Instagram kann das Gesamtbudget auf ein tägliches Budget herunter rechnen und Deine Anzeigen entsprechend ausliefern. Wie hoch die Kosten für Instagram Werbung im Endeffekt sind und wie häufig Deine Werbeanzeigen auf der Plattform platziert werden, wird stets von der individuellen Leistung der Werbeanzeigen bestimmt.

Finally it’s possible to find out what your audience wants. There’s no need to go outside and ask pedestrians for their opinion. With a recently launched interactive poll sticker, which is part of the Instagram Stories, it’s way easier. Want to collect feedback on the promoted product or gather more ideas from the audience? Create a survey in one tap! Ask a question and give two answers to choose from. Check out the statistics to see the votes. The poll will last for 24 hours. If needed, fine-tune your affiliate marketing campaign according to the results obtained.
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.
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.
Tip#2 is to go sign up for elink,io right now. It’s a free tool that lets you post multiple links on your instagram bio which is super helpful to increase profits for us affiliate marketers.

For influencer networks, I’ve found the average rates to be quite a bit lower. The average rate for gigs I was accepted for through Popular Pays, for example, was about 30% lower than the rates I was able to get through direct e-mail collaborations. I assume this is because these influencer networks have influencers compete with one another so everyone lowers their rates a bit in hopes of getting the gig. With a brand who e-mails you, on the other hand, you already know they want to work with you so you’re more confident in sticking with your full rates. I would say $10 CPM is a great starting point for e-mail negotiations (if you’ve got the engagement and photo quality to back it up) vs. $5 CPM is about the lowest you should accept / offer for influencer networks.
Trovare programmi affiliate, poi, è ancora più facile.

There are new marketing tactics popping up every single day. Ebooks. Whitepapers. Facebook ads. Twitter. Blogging. When you’re first getting started in the dropshipping game, it can be tough to figure out which ones you should be focusing on. Instagram influencer marketing has helped some stores skyrocket their sales overnight. Marketing on Instagram is one channel you should definitely explore. Instagram influencers have grown large audiences who, when shown the right product (that’s where you come in), will convert.

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.
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.
