Instagram macht es Menschen wahrlich nicht einfach, Geld über die Plattform zu verdienen. Auf der Profilseite hat man lediglich die Möglichkeit, einen einzigen Link zu integrieren. Dieser führt im Regelfall auf eine Webseite. Im Gegensatz zu Facebook, Twitter und Co. ist der Link in der Bio tatsächlich der einzige Verweis, den man einfügen kann. Links in Beiträgen können nicht angeklickt werden, da Instagram sie als Text darstellt.
Das soziale Netzwerk baut die angebotenen Features immer weiter aus. Während man zu längst vergessenen Zeiten ausschließlich mit Hashtags versehene Fotos auf der Plattform posten konnte, besteht mittlerweile unter anderem die Möglichkeit über die App zu chatten, Stories, die à la Snapchat 24 Stunden sichtbar sind, hochzuladen und bezahlte Werbung zu schalten. Diese Optionen sind für Firmen und Marketer demnach mehr als attraktiv und halten zahllose Möglichkeiten bereit, kreativ, individuell und bestensfalls authentisch zu werben. Die folgenden 11Strategien schaffen eine Grundlage für die ideale Instagram-Präsenz.
Shopping on Instagram allows brands to add shoppable tags to their images. As you can see from the image above, these tags contain a product’s name and price. However, if Instagrammers click on a tag, extra information about this product will be displayed on their screen. Importantly, and super excitingly for eCommerce stores, a View on Website call to action button will also be displayed with the extra product info. This button will link directly to the product page on the brand’s online shop.
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.

Laut statista befindet sich Instagram im März 2015 auf Platz 10 der weltweit größten Social Media Netzwerke mit über 300 Millionen monatlich aktiven Nutzern, wovon 70 Prozent außerhalb der USA auf die Plattform zugreifen. Insgesamten wurden 30 Milliarden Fotos und Videos über Instagram hochgeladen. 70 Millionen Fotos und Videos werden pro Tag online gestellt und etwa 2,5 Milliarden “Gefällt mir”-Angaben täglich auf Instagram vergeben. (Stand: Mai 2015)
Ideally, you should take photos of yourself holding the product. You may also want to create posts that show the effect of the product. If you’re an affiliate marketer for makeup, you might post a before and after photo of what you look like before and after you put on the makeup. There are a ton of ways to do this – how you choose to market the product or service is completely up to you.

Whether you are a brand or an influencer, creating a good Instagram profile isn’t as easy as it sounds. In principle it’s simple - take a good photo, upload it, add a filter and upload it. However, some of the most successful accounts have taken steps to make sure their Instagram stands out from the crowd so that they can gain more followers, and if they are an influencer, it paves the way for big brands to want to work with them to reach a wider audience.


Amazon Associates – Signing up with Amazon Associates is a great platform for those new to affiliate marketing. Amazon Associates is Amazon’s affiliate marketing program and will give you access to millions of products that you can advertise to your audience. Quick and easy to sign up with, Amazon will give you up to 10% of every referral sale that is made.
Don’t Buy Fake Followers – Although brands might be impressed at first glance with your follower numbers, it won’t take long for them to realize that your audience isn’t worth paying for. A few clicks to check on engagement levels and how your followers have responded to your posts will tell them that you have bought your followers, not organically grown your audience. This isn’t the type of audience that will get results for businesses, and consequently, people won’t want to pay you to promote their posts.

With success and online recognition comes some responsibility. You can use your online reach to tell other people that sex sells ( a bit obvious by now) or you can write something interesting that furthers knowledge and fuels productive conversations. Adding boobs and butts in the name of testing and experimentation is not adding any value to the conversation. You put so much work on your blog and a ton of people appreciate it. There was not need for this. I don’t care much about these things normally but those pictures really upset me.. maybe because I thought you were a thoughtful guy. Nevermind.


Bei Instagram Geld verdienen kannst du nicht nur mit Werbung, sondern auch mit dem Verkauf von eigenen Produkten. Für Business Profile bietet Instagram seit März 2018 sogar an Produkte zu kennzeichnen und direkt im Bild Produkte zu markieren und mit einem Kauflink in den eigenen Shop auszustatten. Einige Shopsysteme wie z.B. Shopify bieten diese Funktion out-of-the-box bereits an. Du kannst deine im Shop angelegten Produkte also sehr einfach mit deinen Bildern auf deinem Instagram Business Account verlinken und hast mit jedem Bild die Chance auf Umsätze. 
As an affiliate manager, the evolution of influencers in the performance marketing space is a trend I have kept a close eye on. Early on, I saw the value of content affiliates, but remained a minority among my peers. Now, the tide has changed. Influencer marketing has infiltrated the affiliate marketing world. Merchants see the value of influencers’ reviews for conversions and requests for affiliate managers to recruit influencers have grown exponentially. Affiliate managers now spend much of their time diligently crafting custom emails with the hopes of recruiting the next top performing influencer. However, many of these hours are wasted because of one common mistake. Many managers overlook the first essential step in the recruitment process: creating the prospect list.  An unqualified list results in failure, no matter how brilliant your recruitment outreach.
One thing I found odd with Clickbank is that to register, your IP address needs to match the country of the home address you are inputting. If you are traveling around, this makes it hard to register for an account. My application was immediately denied because although my home address is in Canada, my IP was coming from Europe as I was currently traveling when I applied for Clickbank.
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?

Travel blogger @Anna Everywhere has an Instagram full of stunning photo shoots in amazing locations around the world. She is incredibly stylish, and many people send her messages asking where she buys her clothes, so to help with that - even though this is not the focus point of the picture, she will include a link to the product below the image. The image below is from Waikiki, and she mentions her bikini after everything she has to say about the location. She also doesn’t link to products in every single post that she does.
hey that account whoisneilpatel only has 500 followers now what the hell man what happened to the account is there a follow up to this article you missed like every one eventually unfollowed you. I need to know other wise I aint never buying a IG Account and I allso want to know how much was did you buy the account for. that wasn’t addressed in the article
Alternatively, to find niche affiliate programs, a basic Google search will suffice. Then simply sign up with the individual affiliate programs you like the look of and take it from there. There is no limit to how many affiliate programs you can sign up with, but make sure the products you are going to promote are high quality. If you promote products that aren’t up to scratch, you will lose the trust of your Insta-followers, and quickly lose your audience.

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. If you’re interested in reading more of my thoughts, check out my Instagram growth blog post – point #10).
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).
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.
For affiliate marketers, this means you can create a post with an image incorporating an affiliate product, with the affiliate link added as text overlay, or in the caption. This post will then be shared on an influencers Instagram account, exposing your affiliate link to a new audience, as well as finding you potential new Instagram followers for your own account.
