So, how much should you charge for a post? There’s no hard rule, but the general consensus is $5-$10 CPM (cost per thousand) for Instagram. For Instagram that means you’ll charge $5-$10 for every 1,000 followers, So someone with 10,000 followers would charge $50-$100, whilst someone with 1 million followers would charge $5,000-$10,000 per Instagram post. Which end of the spectrum your Instagram rate falls on depends on a lot of factors – your engagement, the quality of photo you’re producing, how competitive you want to be. Personally, if you’ve got good engagement (most brands look for at least 2-4%) and you’re producing high-quality photos, then I think you can and should charge closer to $10 CPM.
Im Übrigen muss die Auszeichnung nichts Negatives sein. Schließlich ist den meisten Followern ohnehin bewusst, dass die Influencer die teilweise aufwendigen Kanäle mit täglichen Postings nicht umsonst betreiben, sondern damit auch Geld verdienen oder sogar ihren Lebensunterhalt damit bestreiten. Wer damit offen umgeht, ist authentisch. Die Berliner Lifestyle-Bloggerin Masha Sedgwick erzählt im Interview mit der W&V, dass ihre Leserschaft auf werbliche Posts nicht anders reagiert als auf persönliche Posts. Es hinge jedoch auch davon ab, wie diese gestaltet sind.
The following stats speak volumes. As much as 8 mln business profiles and over 1 mln advertisers are currently registered with Instagram. Businesses take the solution seriously as it has one of the highest engagement rates among the social platforms. It outranks Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat and any other popular social networks, ranking #2 right below Facebook. With that said, if you want to keep up with the pace of the times you should harness the power of Instagram marketing, the sooner the better.
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!
In the beginning, the tracking capabilities of affiliate marketing felt revolutionary: marketers were giving trackable links to publishers, with the publisher earning a commission every time a reader made a click or a purchase. Leveraging this newfound transparency opened up an opportunity for publishers to monetize their content without having to sell banner ads and pop-ups, while brands could now have a trackable, results-driven strategy for their marketing spend.
So it means that 5 people will buy using your Affiliate link and let's say that you promote a product for $50 dollars and only 10$ will go for you. So you just made $50 Dollars after two weeks working less than 1hour in those two weeks. It’s really easy and realy fast money and if you know where to look you can get sometimes even $100 Commiosn for each person that bought product that you promoted.
Monetizing a blog or social media platform is a pretty hot and oftentimes polarizing topic. There are some people who are absolutely fascinated by the fact that bloggers and social media influencers can earn money (and sometimes lots of it!) for merely posting photos of themselves and their life. Others think that posting sponsored content somehow “taints” your online presence. Personally, I’m of the camp that nobody should work for free. Growing a blog and Instagram takes a lot of time and effort, so you should absolutely be paid for your effort. If you’re interested in turning your blog or Instagram into a money-making business, read on for my comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to monetize these platforms.
An influencer can also choose to shorten the non-linkable URL that they include in their Instagram post by using bit.ly. If we “bit.ly” this link to AP’s blog, www.accelerationpartners.com/blog, it would look like http://bit.ly/1SwgojI. The affiliate simply inputs their affiliate link into a link shortener tool to get the shortened link. The Instagram follower would then copy/paste this link into their browser which would redirect them through an affiliate link to the merchants site.
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.
Mittlerweile hat sich auch Instagram selbst dieser Thematik angenommen. Bei Kooperationen haben Influencer die Möglichkeit, in den „Erweiterten Einstellungen“ eines Posts die Kennzeichnung „Bezahlte Partnerschaft mit …“ auszuwählen und das entsprechende Unternehmen anzugeben. Der Hinweis erscheint dann oberhalb des Fotos, also da, wo auch der Standort angegeben wird.
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.
Continuing the conversation about engagement, when recruiting influencers, review which posts garner the most comments. Are the most popular posts personal ones with animals, quotes or kids? Does the influencer get engagement on sponsored, product specific or affiliate posts? What type of comments do the posts receive? For instance, if the comments refer to the individual’s beauty or the creative aspect of the photo, it will generate fewer sales than posts where the followers ask specific questions about the product.
On the other hand, if your goal is to get people to promote your product or service, special offers, discounts and more through channels other than social media, then use affiliate marketing. Target bloggers, companies and publishers with content that complements or relates to your brand base. Understand your customers’ needs and their interests so that you speak to your target audience about what matters most to them. If you sell workout gear, then partner with health and fitness publishers that focus on weight loss, healthy eating and more. This approach of speaking to specific customers with specific needs works because affiliate marketing is designed to generate leads and help you grow your revenue.
