It’s about damn time. I just saw your @whoisneilpatel a few days ago and wondered “Wait, did he just completely rebrand his IG?” I wondered because I followed your original IG page, but unfollowed it because, well, it’s boring (no offense haha) my friends already annoy me with pictures of their food. However, your whoisNeilPatel is effing awesome! (is this why you shaved your head?)… Living vicariously through that type of page is what keeps me entertained – and motivated. I think this is perfect for personal branding and brand awareness. I’m not in stocks, but i know who Timothy Sykes is because of Secret Entourage & IG, and if I plan to educate myself and learn, i’m going to search around through him first to further investigate my next steps. For me, i’ve grown our IG pages through advertising on other influencers IG page that may have an audience interested in my page. After building to thousands of followers, i’ve done “S4S” which is free and easiest way to grow your following. After a certain time, I just delete the picture of the other page. Just my .02
It’s easy to get caught up in numbers when creating an influencer recruitment list. Seeing a number with the magical “k” after it, representing 10,000’s of eyes versus hundreds, is enough to make a manager salivate while calculating that 3% conversion to revenue. However, when recruiting influencers to affiliate marketing, bigger is not always better. The power of the micro-influencer, an influencer with less than 10,000 followers, is one you want to harness for your program. In my experience, the micro-influencer outperforms the mega influencer time and time again. I am not alone in this discovery. HelloSociety says engagement rates are 60% higher with micro versus mega influencers. in addition to higher engagement with your brand, you will also have higher response rates on your outreach with micro influencers. Smaller influencers are more likely to participate in affiliate marketing and listen to recommendations that translate to more sales.”
Die Entwicklung kennen wir von Facebook. Aus einem sozialen Netzwerk, in dem man vor allem Bilder und Status-Updates von Freunden sehen konnte, wurde schnell ein Medien-Hub. Das nutzten viele Publisher, um mit „viralen“ Posts Fans zu sammeln. Die kann man dann über Links zu den eigenen Seiten oder zu Partnern schicken und so mit der Reichweite verdienen. Doch das Geschäft ist schwierig geworden. Die organische Reichweite sinkt, auch weil Facebook mit seinem Algorithmus den Newsfeed der Nutzer bestimmt. Bei Instagram dagegen ist der Feed noch nicht durch einen Algorithmus gefiltert, es macht deshalb gerade den Eindruck, als würden Facebook-Publisher weiterziehen, um bei Instagram das Geschäftsmodell weiterzuführen. Dort häufen sich in letzter Zeit Accounts, die die gleiche Strategie verfolgen, wie erfolgreiche Facebook-Publisher: Witzige Beiträge für 14 bis 24 Jährige, um viele Follower einzusammeln.

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.
Wichtig ist dabei noch, dass man die Angabe „* = Affiliatelinks/Werbelinks“ sowohl in der Desktop-Version, als auch in der mobilen Version der Website finden kann. Die Sidebar wird ja in der Regel ausgeblendet in der mobilen Ansicht. Deshalb habe ich diesen Punkt in der mobile Navigation aufgenommen. Damit ist diese Erklärung nicht sofort sichtbar, aber immerhin schnell auffindbar.
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.
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?
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.
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.

Choose either an existing post and select Edit, or create a new post. Click on the image where you would like to add a shoppable tag. Enter the name of the product you would like to tag, and then select it as it appears in the search box. You can drag the tag around the screen to ensure it doesn’t block too much of the image. Once finished, Preview the image, and then select Done > Share.
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.
Very interesting experiment and read. I know that IG can be very successful for my industry (powersports) though I don’t use it much. As a father I know that youth in my area perfer IG to FB and other social media outlets. I wonder if a new account with $57k in advertising would have done as well as the $15k existing account with $42k in advertising over the same time period?
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.

Du kannst Dein Werbebudget für die Instagram-Anzeigen entweder täglich oder alternativ über die gesamte Laufzeit der Werbekampagne festlegen. Entscheidest Du Dich für ein Tagesbudget, musst Du jeden Tag aufs Neue festlegen, wie viel Du maximal für Deine Werbeanzeigen ausgeben willst. Ist der maximale Betrag erreicht, werden über die Plattform an diesem Tag keine Anzeigen mehr geschaltet. Dadurch bleibst Du flexibel und kannst auf Veränderungen ohne Probleme reagieren.
Many Instagrammers use shortened link services such as Hootsuite (Ow.ly) and Bitly (Bit.ly). While shortened links are practical to use in posts and on other networks, I don’t recommend using one in your bio unless it’s consistent with everything else. Also, it helps if the link is customized or branded. For instance, an account about women’s shoes uses bit.ly/sixinchheels, which would be acceptable.

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.
If you have a special offer or want to promote specific products or get your audience excited about an upcoming launch or campaign, use influencer marketing. Because influencers are in front of your target audience, the influence they have over their followers and the established trust have the potential to drive a great deal of awareness to your brand. The key to successful influencer marketing is to use influencers who believe in your product and don’t promote products that compete with it.
Es gibt verschiedenen Regeln, wenn es um Sponsored Posts geht. Trotzdem sollten Sie, um das Vertrauen Ihres Publikums nicht zu verspielen, stets einen Hashtag #sponsored hinzufügen, wenn es sich um einen Sponsored Post handelt. Und noch etwas zur Beruhigung: 69 Prozent der Influencer haben in einer Umfrage erklärt, dass Transparenz bezüglich ihrer Kooperationen keinen Einfluss darauf hatte, wie Kunden sie wahrgenommen haben.
Some affiliate marketing offers will pay you a set fee if someone signs up for their monthly subscription service. Some will pay you a set fee for driving new users to signup for an app or service. Either way, the more you know your demographic, the more you will be able to find the best converting affiliate marketing programs to bank serious money.
Loyal audiences averaging in millions of subscribers for influencers all over social media have proven that their followings can convert into sales. Affiliate marketing ties into this, how? Performance-based marketing is often referred to as another term for affiliate marketing in which individuals are given customized links to track any sales generated from their promotional posts. From each of those sales, they are awarded via a commission percentage, flat dollar amount, or both. The ease of publisher customization, tracking URLs and commission payouts associated with affiliate marketing have been encouraging to influencers everywhere.

Trovare programmi affiliate, poi, è ancora più facile. O si cerca l’esistenza di programmi in settori e per brand specifici, oppure ci si iscrive gratuitamente a portali di affiliate marketing in cui poter aderire a svariati programmi. Tra questi segnalo: Shareasale, Tradedoubler, Awin e molti altri (una semplice ricerca online ti restituirà decine e decine di portali in cui trovare programmi affiliate divisi per categorie merceologiche).

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.

One benefit of affiliate marketing is the fact that you don’t have to spend time looking for affiliates that match the types of sites your target audience visits. There are affiliate marketing service providers, like ShareASale and FlexOffers, that connect you with businesses, manage payments, offer tracking tools and make sure your content only shows up on reputable sites.


Sehr interessanter und gut recherchierter Beitrag. Ich selbst bin zwar auf Instagram nicht sonderlich aktiv, aber es gibt ja auf allen Social Media Plattformen große Influenzer, die damit viel Geld verdienen. Also war es auch bei Instagram von Beginn an klar, dass diese Entwicklung nicht lange auf sich warten lassen würde. Im Vergleich zu der Entwicklung bei Facebook gehe ich allerdings davon aus, dass sich Instagram wesentlich schneller in die kommerzielle Richtung bewegen wird. Facebook wird sicherlich bald ein möglichst großes Stück von diesem Mega-Kuchen abhaben wollen…

We hired someone off fiverr to manage our account for a month and our followers went up but engagement is still low and clicks to our site are low. I was wondering where you bought the 100k lifestyle page from? Was it one of those sites that show up in google like fameswap.com or viralinstas.com etc. or off ebay.com or did you reach out to the person via dm to buy it.
Story Highlights: Eine Story von dir gefiel dir so gut, dass deine Follower die Möglichkeit haben sollen, diese öfter und langfristig zu sehen? Gar kein Problem, denn seit letztem Jahr kannst du deine Storys archivieren und als Highlights posten. Diese sind dann auf deinem Account über deinem Feed zu sehen. Dabei kannst du so viele Highlights festhalten wie du magst. Vor allem für aktuelle Werbekampagnen oder Stories, die einen Link und bestimmte Hashtags enthalten, eignet sich die Funktion wunderbar. So finden deine Abonnenten länger einen Zugang dazu und haben das Highlight direkt oben auf deinem Account angeordnet präsent. Da User, die noch nicht zu deinen Followern zählen, sich eher die Story-Highlights anschauen, bevor sie den ganzen Feed runterscrollen, ist diese Funktion ein wahres Marketinggeschenk. Wir bei OnlineMarketing.de haben bislang drei Highlight-Kategorien angelegt: Artikel, Tech und Highlights.
Many affiliate marketers direct traffic to a landing page, i.e., a one-page website for e-commerce, event/webinar registration, and list building. I discuss landing page builders in this post. I use a landing page to grow my email list. I offer a list of top and profitable WordPress affiliate programs. When someone subscribes, he or she enters my marketing funnel. A marketing funnel is a process of turning leads into buyers, customers, and clients as illustrated below. Search for “marketing funnel” to explore variations.

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.
