To succeed in affiliate marketing, a publisher needs to deploy thousands of links in multiple places to increase the number of clicks and conversions. On IG, the only place to put a hyperlink is in one’s bio. Links anywhere else are not clickable, for example, links in posts. Many affiliates include links in the hopes that people will copy and paste them into their browsers, but that’s a terrible strategy. So, what is an affiliate marketer to do?

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.


The truth is that both influencer and affiliate marketing are powerful ways to educate your target audience and turn them into customers. Not understanding the differences and how each strategy works means you miss out on opportunities to increase your reach and grow your business. You see, it’s not about relying on just one strategy all the time but instead figuring out which one meets your current goals and alternating between the strategies.
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 there's malware, it won't be because of VigLink. All VigLink does is see if a merchant is in their network, and adds a referral code to the URL if it is. If the original link is to malware, it won't be in the VigLink network. As a general rule, never click on links from people you don't trust—and be skeptical of everything on the internet.

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.
Firmen kontaktieren Personen mit Expertise und einer großen Fanbase, damit sie für ein bestimmtes Produkt sowohl auf deren Instagram-Account als auch auf den eigenen Merchant-Profil werben (mit gegenseitigen Markierungen, zum Beispiel ein Accessoires oder ein Kleidungsstück). Follower werten Influencer als Fachautoritäten und verbinden das Produkt mit einem positiven Gefühl. Mehr Follower und das Promoten des Produktes sind das Ziel dieser Marketingstrategie.

Nordstrom Rack’s recent partnership with Shopping Links is an outstanding example how influencer marketing can be coupled with affiliate marketing to drive not only brand awareness but also traffic and sales.

Individually-selected Influencers created a series of social media posts supported with blog posts to showcase Nordstrom Rack’s products to more than 500,000 potential customers.
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.
Wichtig ist es ebenso die formellen Aspekte im Blick zu behalten. Wer regelmäßig mit Instagram Geld verdienen will, der macht das gewerblich. Beschäftige dich also mit den Grundlagen der Buchhaltung und setze von vor herein auf ein anständiges Setup mit z.B. FastBill. Ordentliche Angebote und Rechnungen wirken auch auf Kunden professioneller und erhöhen die Chance auf große Umsätze.
Dieses Instagram Feature ist seit 2016 auf der Plattform verfügbar. Von Snapchat adaptiert, ist diese Funktion ein wahres Geschenk für Marketer. Obwohl das Posten von Videos und Bildern im Feed immer noch die Hauptfunktion des sozialen Netzwerks darstellt, gewinnen Stories immer mehr an Bedeutung und sollten unbedingt von dir genutzt werden. Dieses Feature generiert tatsächlich mit das höchste Engagement und hat viele Zuschauende. Vor allem (noch) kleine Accounts können durch die Konzentration auf die Features bei Intagram Stories an enormer Reichweite gewinnen.

Well… You got me! I am an entrepreneur and found you on Instagram through a model’s post. I own an Internet marketing agency and I think this is absolutely genius what you are doing. I was wondering what models were getting paid to promote on their profiles. I have been reading your blog for the past week and a half and I can already tell you that you will have a loyal follower here already. I may not be your $57,000 ROI but will definitely refer you to other digital marketers. If you are still taking entries for the giveaway, I’d like to get the university course! Haha!
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!
This might sound like a given, but it looks better if you can do your own photo shoot in your own style - it goes back to the word of mouth marketing. If you are the one wearing the product or have styled the picture yourself, it is more genuine and more likely to lead to a sale. @victoriama9 is a great example of this - it’s clear in the images that it’s her wearing the outfits and not a photo from the brand.
At a direct conversion of $39/month subscription, you will receive $19.50/month commission at 50% each month. While you are sending traffic and referrals, you will receive $19.50 every month until that 1 sale cancels.  In addition, they may sign up as affiliates through your referral and you will be able to see who you referred that signed up. We will also pay you an additional 5% of your referred affiliate’s commissions!

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. You can share links to multiple different landing pages and offers which is great for split testing, while you simultaneously share links to your other social media, and even your website. So now you don’t have to choose between a link to your landing or a link to your youtube channel, you can have both…. And no i’m not sponsored by them.
In most cases, organizations that employ an affiliate strategy tend to be in the e-commerce space. That’s because it is fairly simple for e-commerce brands to track purchases based on a single tracking link. Other types of business, like B2B software or services, tend to be ill suited for affiliate programs because of long and complex sales cycles.
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.
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:

Shopping on Instagram has been around for about a year, but has been reserved only for select businesses based in the US. However, in March 2018, Instagram rolled out Shopping on Instagram across the globe. This feature is now available for 45+ countries and counting. It is also accessible to any business or influencer who has an Instagram Business account (although you will first need to get your account approved for shopping).


Die haben NIRGENDS auch nur Andeutungen von „Werbung“. Nicht mal in den Datenschutz Texten steht „Amazon“ oder „Affiliate“ drin.. wtf? Die machen seit Jahren Millionen und sind somit für mich mehr als „Vorbildstauglich“ für die Szene. Ich würde mich ja nach deren Design richten, wenn ich es mich trauen würde. Kann man die vielleicht mal kurz vom tollen Staat untersuchen lassen, damit wir aus deren Urteil lernen können?

When an Instagrammer posts a product picture on Instagram, they usually tag the brand they are promoting in the comment as well as a link to the specific product. This means that when people are browsing and reading the comments your brand will be on the eyes of potential customers. If they click on the tag, they will be directed to your Instagram page, and if they copy and paste the link to the product you will gain more traffic so it’s a win-win situation.
Im Gegensatz zu Pinterest ist das Einbinden von Affiliate Links auf Instagram erlaubt. Besonders User mit einer großen Reichweite können mit dieser Methode Geld im Internet verdienen. Derzeit nutzen augenfällig viele Mode-Blogger die Vorteile des Affiliate Marketings, um mehr Umsätze zu generieren. Aber auch andere Branchen sind von der Verwendung des Werbelinks nicht ausgeschlossen.
Die Auswahl der Bilder ist entscheidend. Da die Bildsprache Trends unterliegt, muss sie stetig auf Aktualität überprüft werden. Instagram stellt verschiedene Bildtools und Filter zur Verfügung, sodass ein fesselndes Bild entsteht. Unternehmen sollten sich über die Möglichkeiten für visuelles Storytelling informieren, um die Inhalte zielgruppengerecht und in einer kreativen, hochwertigen Umgebung zu präsentieren.
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.
Ok I am new to shopify, designed up yesterday and setup my store and got it rolling already thanks to you guys. I am going to be getting a affiliate program going now but I am curious how long shopify takes for payments to arrive in my bank if im in the USA. Do they send a payment for every order? or should I just take paypal to make it easier to pay affiliates? This is what I am trying to figure out currently, from what I heard it takes 3 days to receive payments in USA and then im assuming I could pay affiliates with paypal with bank transfer. Should I just take paypal, i mean they charge a extra 2% that adds up?

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.
It’s highly advisable when working with influencers in your affiliate program to work out an agreement with them where they get some free product and create their own content for their feed featuring your product. Followers are a lot more likely to engage with a sponsored post that has a personal touch attached to it. The ultimate reason we work with influencers in the first place is because they influence people to buy certain products. There’s no better way to do this than with a personalized post consisting of product you gave to them.
La forza del contenuto visuale – molto più facile da comprendere rispetto a un testo – rende Instagram un canale sicuramente adatto alla promozione di prodotti, scatenando facilmente fenomeni virali e trend: questa caratteristica si unisce anche al maggiore coinvolgimento che il canale stesso solitamente permette, per via del minor numero di utenti (e quindi di affollamento di contenuti) rispetto a Facebook, tanto per citare l’esempio più eclatante.
Sono 2 i soggetti di un accordo commerciale di affiliazione: il primo è il merchant o inserzionista (o advertiser) che crea un programma di affiliazione per ingaggiare gli affiliati (o publisher) per promuovere prodotti o servizi online. Il secondo soggetto è appunto il publisher o affiliato che decide di partecipare al programma iscrivendo il proprio sito web, portale o presidio web per veicolare i prodotti o i servizi del brand promotore dell’affiliazione.

There will always be plenty of brands that reach out to you who don’t have budget beyond simply free gifting. When you’re first starting out, that’s only natural as you don’t yet have as much to offer when it comes to your online reach. Collaborating on a free gifting basis allows you to build up your credibility, your brand, and open the doors for future collaborations because you’re able to showcase that you make a great spokesperson for a brand. But there comes a point when ( a ) the novelty of getting stuff for free wears off and ( b ) you realize that you’re providing brands with something of value and that you should be fairly compensated for that. The expectation by so many brands that influencers do work for free is something that really irks me. In what other profession would you do work and not get paid for it, whether or not you’re just starting out in the industry? Sure, you might just make a little above minimum wage, but you’re definitely being paid something. Yes, smaller brands and those just starting out probably won’t have a huge marketing budget and I still sometimes work on a gifting basis if it’s a brand I firmly believe in and want to build a long-term relationship with. But when companies that have been around for years and have built up a successful brand themselves don’t value you and your work enough to feel you should be paid? It’s a slap in the face, to be honest. Ladies (and gentlemen), please know your worth and don’t feel pressure to do free (or underpaid) work. It’s better to say no and save yourself the time and hassle. When you say no to working for free, you’re leaving yourself open to collaborations with brands who are willing to pay you fairly. You only have a limited number of hours to do work each week and, most likely, you also have a limited number of sponsored posts you want to do each week to keep your Instagram feed and blog from appearing too sales-pitchy. Leave those coveting slots open for brands who value you.


The top Influencers may balk at this payment model since they are used to pay-per-post. But again, it’s much more likely that micro-influencers will be open to this model. And to sweeten the pot, you should offer an initial “signing bonus” of free products for them to have, and also a higher commission rate unique for these affiliate Influencers. If your usual commission rate is 10–20% for the average influencer, consider going as high as 50%. Even if the ROI isn’t quite 11X, but say 5X, it’s still well worth the commission costs.
