Since the introduction of Instagram stories was released in November 2016, it has become incredibly popular as a peek into the day to day lives of some of the most popular Instagrammers out there. Anything that gets posted lasts for just 24 hours. @sheshopped posted about creating pretty ice cubes for her Marks and Spencer Australia photo shoot the next day. This lets people know to expect something new on your Instagram the next day to highlight that brand and piques people’s curiosity.
Zeigt ein Influencer auf seinem Instagram-Account ein Produkt, das er oder sie selbst gekauft hat und schwärmt davon, ist das normalerweise keine Werbung, sondern eine persönliche Empfehlung. Ein Instagram-Post mit oder über ein bestimmtes Produkt gilt erst dann als Werbung, wenn der Influencer dafür „belohnt“ wird, indem er also für die Produktvorstellung bezahlt oder anderweitig entlohnt wird. Ein Hinweis, dass es sich um ein selbstgekauftes Produkt handelt, vermeidet Missverständnisse.
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.

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.


When the giveaway ends and it’s time to send out your product to the winner, make sure you communicate directly with the winner themselves and try to get some additional marketing goodwill from this. You can ask the winner to post about their winning on their own social media pages so that their friends and family learn about your brand. You can also incentivize the winner to refer friends and family by providing them with additional discounts for doing so. If you’re not keen on giving away your product for free you could also host a contest that allows the winner to purchase your product but at a significant, one-time discount.


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.


Pick a Niche – When businesses look for influencers to promote their products, they want someone who has a following made up of people in their niche. Popular niches on Instagram include fashion, health, and fitness, travel and cookery, to name a few. Choose a niche that is relevant to your lifestyle and then post images, and build your audience around this subject. You will then become a valuable influencer to businesses in your particular industry.
I’ve googled and googled and cannot seem to find out how random girls just blow up on Instagram. I HONESTLY do not care about the numbers of followers, I just want to see my business grow and it eats at me how I cannot find “the secret”; because I know there is one…. How does a girl start her blog and 6 months after her launch she has over 1,000,000 page views. They say… Great taste but I call bullshit. For a while I even began to think it was because I’m not a f*[email protected] stick. I have a nice a$$.. But even big a$$es go viral on IG.

I told them to send me their pictures….and I had to do this at the beginning…I created post with their image and they paid me for this. And now every two weeks I create for them sponsored post. I can't tell how much they are paying me because it's in our agreement. I can tell you that if your Instagram account has between 2k to 8k followers and your post usually have good engagement Rate between 200 to 400 likes per post you can easily charge from $80 to $180 Dollars per post and it of course depend on your Niche. 

Technically this should go before #7 and #8 because you need to figure out your rates before you can do sponsored content. That said, most sponsored content starts out as free gifting, which means you don’t actually need to know rates in the beginning since you’ll just be getting free product in exchange for your Instagram and blog posts. I also wanted to talk about sponsored content and influencer networks before I get into rates because I’ve had two very different experiences with the two when it comes to how much they pay.
Abonnenten sind nichts Permanentes. Um sicherzustellen, dass deine Follower deine Inhalte weiterhin interessant finden und dir erhalten bleiben, solltest du beachten, dass du regelmäßig Inhalte lieferst, per Nachrichten interagierst und dich authentisch zeigst. Außerdem kannst du deinen Abonnenten folgen. So zeigst du Kundennähe und kannst durch Likes oder Kommentare für Fotos deiner Follower eine durchgehende Präsenz sowie Interesse zeigen. Diese Nähe zu den Usern wird langfristig gesehen auch deine Reichweite positiv beeinflussen.
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.
While the world of Instagram influencers and how we utilize them to market our products is still very young, we have been able to cover several great ways to get the most out of these powerful players within your affiliate program. Good luck with all your affiliate marketing efforts and feel free to email us or comment below with any ideas or questions.
Once you reach a certain level of growth, the more you’re going to be inundated with e-mails and there may come a point in time when you feel like you’re spending all of your time answering e-mails rather than doing any actual work that brands want to hire you for. This is where a talent agency can help you. They can handle all of the nitty gritty for you – answer e-mails, negotiating rates, creating a content schedule for you, etc. They’ll also reach out to brands and PR firms on your behalf to pitch you for potential collaborations. In return, they take a cut of each of your collaborations (industry standard in North America is around 15-25%). On top of that cut, you will have to give up a lot of control that you might have a hard time doing and most will have you sign exclusively for a certain period of time. Definitely weigh the pros and cons for your particular situation. Having a firm handle all the paperwork and media management for you frees you up to do what you do best – create beautiful content – and that can be very liberating for some bloggers and influencers.
Whilst most influencer networks focus on social media, there are some that also have heavy focus on blog. Social Fabric is the only blog influencer platform I have experience with and their rates are fixed. This was great in the beginning as I actually got a few blog gigs that paid a little more than what brands who e-mailed me were offering. If I get the chance to research more in depth which platforms do blog and how they pay, I’ll make sure to update this post.
Sponsored Posts wurden 2013 in den USA eingeführt. Zu den ersten bekannten Marken gehörten damals, unter anderem, Michael Kors, Levis und General Electric. Seit dem 20. April 2015 gibt es Instagram Werbung und Sponsored Posts auch in Deutschland. Zunächst sollen die Werbeanzeigen nur von ausgewählten Unternehmen geschaltet werden, die bereits auf der Plattform aktiv sind. Damit will Instagram sicherstellen, dass die Unternehmen viele Follower haben und die Werbung “kreativ und interessant” sei.
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.
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.
Wie kann Affiliate auf einer Plattform funktionieren, auf der Links in Posts und Kommentaren nicht auftauchen? Megachats nutzt einen Workaround. Einer der wenigen Orte, an denen Links auf Instagram eingefügt werden können, ist in der Profilbeschreibung. Megachats packt also den Affiliate-Link neben das Profilfoto und weist seine vielen Follower über ein Werbeposting darauf hin. Dort steht dann sowas: „Die perfekte Spiele-App gegen Langeweile! Link zur App in meiner Bio!“ Klickt Ihr auf den Link, landet Ihr direkt im App Store oder Googles Play Store bei der App des Tages. Bei unseren Recherchen waren das unter anderem die Musik-App Deezer oder Spiele wie „Panda Pop – Bubble Shooter“ und „Cookie Jam“.
Was möchte dein Publikum überhaupt für Inhalte sehen? Da du nicht ein x-beliebiges Publikum ansprechen möchtest, sondern zielgruppengerichtete Inhalte liefern willst, ist diese Frage von großer Bedeutung. Mache dir Gedanken, um die Personen, die du mit deinem Account erreichen möchtest. Dafür ist es sinnvoll, Themenfelder von Interesse zu finden. Um diese zu entdecken, ist es von Nutzen eine Buyer-Persona zu kreieren. So hast du im Anschluss eine Vorstellung von den hauptsächlichen Interessen deiner Follower und kannst so einen idealen und vor allem spezifischen Content erstellen.
Influencer marketing is extremely popular on social media. If you’re hoping to raise brand awareness in a short amount of time, choose the platform your audience spends the most time on and partner with influencers they’re likely to follow. The following examples focus on the three main platforms for influencer marketing: Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

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?
Make it easy for brands to find you by adding your contact e-mail in your Instagram bio and on an easy-to-find contact page on your blog. You can even have a form to fill out to make it easier and avoid spam but I would personally always list an actual e-mail address since some people just don’t like these online forms (and then get yourself a good spam filter).
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.

Weil es so schwer ist, Nutzer zur Anmeldung zu bewegen, denkt Doberschütz schon über neue Möglichkeiten nach, das Projekt zum Erfolg zu führen. Er hat einen Exit-Intent-Layer eingebaut. Wenn man die StyleLike-Seite verlassen will, erscheint ein Pop-up, das ein kostenloses E-Book über Instagram-Erfolg verspricht – wenn man seine E-Mail-Adresse hinterlässt. Auf diesem Weg will Doberschütz Nutzer langfristig an sich binden. Denn in Zukunft will er StyleLike zu einer Monetarisierungs-Plattform für Fashion-Influencer aufbauen – egal, wo die ihre Inhalte posten. Außerdem will er eine Instagram Academy gründen. In Online-Kursen soll jeder dort lernen, wie er bei Instagram mehr Follower aufbauen kann. Und Brands würden sich nach besseren Analysemöglichkeiten für visuelle Inhalte sehnen und so überlegt Doberschütz, eine Plattform für Influencer-Stockfotos zu gründen. Da steht viel auf dem Plan. Allzu leicht scheint es also nicht zu sein, mit Liketoknow.it im Kerngeschäft zu konkurrieren. Daher sucht sich Doberschütz eben auch andere Bereiche, um Geld zu verdienen.
Most affiliate networks these days offer an option to set a specific coupon code as “forced exclusive” to a specific affiliate publisher. This means that any time that coupon code is used, even if no affiliate link was clicked previously, the specific affiliate which the code is tied to always gets commission for sales where customers use that code. This is especially helpful if customers happen to visit a coupon site or a different bottom funnel affiliate before making their purchase when the Instagram influencer was the true referrer for the sale and deserves the proper credit.
