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.
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.
Instagram has provided the platform to food influencers over the world to share their food and nutrition enthusiasm with their followers. These food and nutrition based followers range from world renowned chefs to small cafe owners or even regular people who are just inspired to share their food journey and experience, and have as a result gained a following based on their influence. You can find a foodie influencer for every type of eater. Here we’ve compiled some of the top current food and nutrition related Instagram influencers for you.

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.

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.
Website advertising is probably already very familiar to you. You’ve seen an ad, you’ve clicked on an ad, heck you may have even purchased something as a direct result of clicking on that ad. There are essentially two ways of creating ads on your website. The first is getting brands to pay you for advertising space and in turn you post their ad (banner) somewhere on your website (usually in the sidebar). You can reach out to brands directly to try and sell your ad space or, if brands reach out to you, you can offer that as an option.

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!
Das Problem, dass Instagram keine Links unter den einzelnen Beiträgen zulässt, umgeht Liketoknow.it mit einem cleveren Trick: Influencer melden sich bei dem Service an, tragen die Affiliate-Links zu den Outfits in einer Web-Oberfläche ein und bekommen einen Liketoknow.it-Link (z.B.: www.liketk.it/2inYP). Diesen posten sie dann in der Beschreibung des jeweiligen Instagram-Fotos – wo er wegen der Instagram-Vorgaben nicht klickbar ist. Jeder Instagram-Nutzer der dieses Foto liked und bei Liketoknow.it angemeldet ist, bekommt dann eine E-Mail mit den Links zum Influencer-Shop. Über die Landing-Pages der Influencer und Brands kommt er dann zum eigentlichen Online-Shop. Kauft der Nutzer, bekommt der Influencer eine Affiliate-Provision, einen Teil behält Liketoknow.it.
Mit die cleversten Errungenschaften der digitalen Welt sind die Möglichkeiten des Trackings. Das Tracking (auf Deutsch „Verfolgung“) beschreibt die technische Möglichkeit 100%ig nachzuvollziehen, welcher User nacheinander was gemacht hat. Es ermöglicht im Affiliate Marketing genau zu erkennen, wann ein User auf eine Anzeige geklickt hat, wohin ihn der entsprechende Link geführt hat, bis hin zu der Tatsache, welches Produkt er letztlich gekauft hat. Werbekampagnen können so, z.B. durch gezielt eingesetzte A/B Tests, perfekt optimiert werden und Affiliates erfolgsbasiert bezahlt werden.
Jeder Marketingkanal bedarf einer speziellen Marketingstrategie – so auch Instagram. Zum Beispiel sind veröffentlichte Bilder nicht mit einer URL bzw. einem Link versehen. Zudem können Nutzer keine Bilder teilen. Dadurch ist es schwierig, unmittelbaren Traffic oder eine Konversion zu messen. Instagram ist daher als digitaler Branding Kanal einzuordnen.

Nah, you should work backwards: Start looking for the “noisiest” people on social media; the ones who have posted written or video reviews, tweets about how much they like your product, and of course, those who leverage Instagram. It’s important to check all social media because these potential partners may have, say, posted on Facebook about you but haven’t bothered to post on Instagram specifically. Then, after you’ve compiled a list, cross-reference their names/emails with your customer database. Got a match? That person is a prime candidate to reach out to, if they meet the criteria above that we’ve already established.
The approach you choose should also depend on how much you’re willing to spend. A larger budget allows you to partner with larger influencers who can get you as much exposure as possible. However, influencer marketing is known to be expensive. Another option is to target micro-influencers in your niche who don’t have millions of followers but have thousands of highly engaged followers.

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.

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.


Um mit Instagram Geld verdienen zu können und potentielle Käufer in deinen Checkout zu leiten, nutze dafür idealerweise eine Kombination aus Stories und Bildern, und weise darauf hin, dass das Produkt unter dem Link in deiner Biografie erreichbar ist. Mit einem exklusiven Coupon Code kannst du im Nachgang sogar messen, welchen Effekt das gebracht hat. Wenn du reine Klicks messen willst, kannst du z.B. den URL Shortener Bitly.com nutzen. Wenn du mehrere URLs verwenden willst, nutze z.B. Linktr.ee (nutze ich selbst auch).

A Direct Message on Instagram is only slightly better. It can get lost in the mix of other DMs, and it’s often a crap shoot as to whether they will even read it since if they don’t follow you on Instagram, your DM will show up as a “message request” in their inbox. These are often just ignored. However, Influencers on the micro-level are more likely to check these DMs so for those with smaller followings, it’s worth a shot.
Once you’re starting to work with brands in a paid capacity, it’s great to have a media kit on hand to send along when requested. A media kit is a document that outlines the key facts and statistics of your blog. From the number of blog readers / social media followers you have, your page views, reader / follower demographics, the types of collaborations you do, and brands you’ve worked with in the past. You’ll also want to include a short bio of yourself / your blog as well as where you can be found online. Jeni, from The Media Maven wrote a detailed post about what you need to include to make a kick-a** media kit.
Was ich auch schon häufig gesehen habe sind Instagrammer-Reisen (wie Bloggerreisen). Sie werden in Länder und an Orte eingeflogen, um vor Ort zu fotografieren. Auch, wenn von einer Reise keine Miete gezahlt werden kann, kann es als "Zusatzverdienst" dennoch interessant sein. Meist gibt es hier zumindest ein Reisebudget. Im besten Fall auch einen Pauschalbetrag oben drauf.
