I look forward to seeing if/how this $57k investment pays off for you. It’s a pretty interesting experiment to say the least. I have the same dilemma with the Instagram account I just created for my bow tie company, Chringle & Co. I see how the fashion accounts that get tons of attention operate, but I’m not flashy enough to organize a daily photo shoot to showcase my #details. Dah well, hopefully I can use the approach you have and work with other Instagram models and fashion-forward individuals in the coming months.
But to make money with affiliate marketing you need to get a affiliate link to a product that you promote and you need to put this link in your description. You can easily by the end of the next week have over 1000 followers…and let’s say that only 10% will click your affiliate link and only 5% will buy using your affilaite link and I really low ball it because Instagram is really on fire when you know how to use it.

Immer mehr Werbetreibende entscheiden sich gegen die klassische und für die Social Media Werbung. Aktuelle Zahlen sprechen eine deutliche Sprache: Im Rahmen einer umfangreichen Studie wurden deutsche Internetnutzer ab 14 Jahren Ende 2017 befragt, welche Werbeplattform sie zu einem Kauf bewegt hat. 23 Prozent der Befragten gaben die klassische TV-Reklame an, während es das soziale Netzwerk Facebook sogar auf 24 Prozent schaffte. Nicht nur Facebook, Twitter und YouTube sind lohnenswerte Plattformen für Unternehmen, sondern auch der weltbekannte Online-Dienst Instagram.
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.

Affiliate marketing can be a great way to earn money through your blog, especially once your traffic picks up. If you’re new to this concept, it’s essentially a custom URL with a unique tracking code in it. If someone purchases something through your affiliate link, you’ll earn a commission (typically between 5-15%). And it usually doesn’t have to be the specific item you linked. Most of these affiliate programs will give you a commission if someone purchased anything from a particular site within a specific time window after the click through. The great thing about programs such as Amazon Associates, Reward Style, Shop Style and Link Share, is they’re easy to setup and start using and there is no risk involved – worst case scenario you don’t make any money but best case you’ll make a nice chunk of change without anything other than creating a custom link for the product you’re planning on linking anyway. Most will also accept all bloggers regardless of page views. I’m not going to go into too much detail about affiliate marketing, since there’s a ton of good information online already. You can read a great in-depth article about affiliate marketing for bloggers here.


I’m a big Dan Bilzarian fan. I’m also a Neil Patel fan. But when the “who is Neil Patel” photos were shared with me I was disappointed. I felt cheated. Because what I was seeing was completely different than the brand I thought Neil Patel was. I was confused and didn’t trust what I was seeing. Rather than an educated marketing expert I saw a pig. First person I thought of was Dan Bilzarian, but that wasn’t s good thing only because it was against your brand. I didn’t trust what I saw. I then forwarded the photos to the person who referred me to your program, and she had the same reaction and said “That’s disgusting. I lost respect.” I’m glad you wrote this post to clarify the intention and restore your brand. Conclusion, your bread and butter know you as a marketing expert here to help them grow their business with your expertise and experience. You’ve built loyalty and respect in this way – protect your brand.
According to Forester, Instagram has the highest engagement rate of the many social media platforms. This is precisely why affiliate Instagram marketing via Influencer (aka Influencer Marketing) has become a one billion dollar industry today, and the entire Influencer Marketing segment overall is predicted to become a ten billion dollar industry by 2020.
High Cost/Low Effort — Get an agency to send you potential Influencers. Talent agencies like Viral Nation or MediaKix work with a stable of popular social Influencers who you can connect with for a fee. Unless you’ve got money to burn, and are looking to launch a huge Instagram Influencer campaign, this option is probably one to avoid for now. But hey, it’s there if you want to go big!

Da Megachats häufig den Link-Verkürzer von Google nutzt, konnten wir einen Blick auf die Klickzahlen werfen. Denn der Account-Betreiber hat vergessen, die Statistik für die Öffentlichkeit zu sperren. Das Hinzufügen des Befehls #analytics in die URL genügt, um Zugriff auf die Daten zu erhalten. Das Ergebnis: An guten Tagen klicken gut und gerne 4.000 Follower auf den Affiliate-Link, an sehr guten auch mal 20.000. Besonders das Versprechen von kostenloser Musik scheint viele anzuziehen, den Deezer-Link klicken deutlich mehr Nutzer, als die zu den Spiele-Apps. Megachat nutzt als Affiliate Netzwerk den recht neuen Player Sharepop. Das Unternehmen wurde erst 2014 gegründet und firmiert unter dem Dach der SADH Internet GmbH, bei der Tim Koschella, Co-Founder des Erfolgs-Startups Hitfox, Managing Director ist. Sharepop bietet Influencern auf Facebook, Youtube, Twitter und Instagram eine Affiliate-Lösung an. Megachats bekommt für jede Installation einen Betrag zwischen einem und fünf Euro, je nach beworbener App. Ausgezahlt wird erst einmal in virtuellen „Coins“ (100 Coins sind ein Euro), ab 5000 Coins (50 Euro) können sich die Affiliates das Geld über Paypal auszahlen lassen.
Merch by Amazon – If you use Merch by Amazon then you don’t need to set up your own online store – all products are simply displayed on Amazon’s website. Simply upload your artwork to your Amazon Merch account, and add the product information and price. Amazon will then create a product page for your work, and when you receive orders they will print and ship. (Merch by Amazon only prints onto T-shirts and is only available in the US).

When you are posting a photo make sure you use relevant tags. Including hashtags means more engagement and likes. To find the best tags for your content you need to research your audience to find out what hashtags they are using on their posts. Posting the most popular tags won’t necessarily help you in the long run. For example, a travel blogger should have travel related tags. If they were to include a hashtag about vitamins it wouldn’t necessarily fit with their content. If you include a hashtag that doesn’t fit with your niche, people will be less likely to engage with you.


This is a great way to get noticed by a brand and maybe even have them repost your photo, which is great for growth. But even better yet, if you get on their radar they might just contact you for a collaboration. At the very least, it’s great for brands who are thinking of working with you to see that you do product placement on your Instagram (whether or not the brands you tag actually paid you or not). I wouldn’t go overboard, though, and tag every single item in every single photo. Just whatever happens to be prominent in the photo or whatever people typically ask you about in your comments. For example, I get a lot of questions about my IKEA learning tower hack so I actually created a separate Instagram account with the tutorial link so I can tag that account (@ikealearningtower) in every one of my kitchen photos because I know there will be someone interested in that info.
Another great way to get the most out of Instagram influencers in your affiliate program is to host a product giveaway with them. Influencers love running giveaways because they receive excellent engagement from them and gain a lot of new followers in the process. When you structure the giveaway with the influencer you do want to make sure that it’s not one sided and you get some new followers for your social media accounts as well. At the end of the day, it’s a great way to get some new followers and get some great marketing out there for the cost of your product, which is usually a brand’s preferred currency.
Wer sich als "Werbefläche" kaufen lässt, der muss/sollte dies auch als "Branded Content" kennzeichnen. Da der Hashtag #ad i.d.R. nicht ausreicht, bietet Instagram mittlerweile eine bessere Kennzeichnungsmöglichkeit an. Wie du deinen Content als Branded Content kennzeichnest, findest du z.B. hier. Damit soll das Geld verdienen mit Instagram über Werbung endlich aus der Grauzone geholt und zu einem ganz normalen Geschäftsmodell gemacht werden.
And re. the dropping followers if we get a account with lifestyle/luxury posts and start posting tequila related posts do you think we’d get just as much dropped followers or do you think we should wait to find a account specifically about alcohol? Although those seem hard to find even if we reach out to one in that niche it’ll most likely be about a existing brand
A Direct Message on Instagram is only slightly better. It can get lost in the mix of other DMs, and it’s often a crap shoot as to whether they will even read it since if they don’t follow you on Instagram, your DM will show up as a “message request” in their inbox. These are often just ignored. However, Influencers on the micro-level are more likely to check these DMs so for those with smaller followings, it’s worth a shot.
Now, this is is just a guideline that most influencers (and influencer talent agencies) go by. There are plenty of brands out there who aren’t willing to pay this high so you be the judge of what you’re willing to accept. Don’t undersell yourself though. It takes a lot of work to produce content and just because someone is willing to pay something, doesn’t mean it’s enough for the work involved or the reach you provide.
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.

Instagram Stories: In einer Story kannst du eine Umfrage erstellen. Dabei können die User zwischen zwei Themen auswählen und jeweils für das stimmen, von dem sie gerne mehr Inhalte sehen wollen würden. Doch wenn ein „Entweder-Oder“ sich nicht eignen sollte, hält Instagram eine brandneue Option bereit. Neu ausgerollt sind nämlich die Fragen-Sticker. Mithilfe dieser Option können deine Follower bei dem offenen Antwortformat individuelle Wünsche äußern. Du formulierst dabei die Frage, wie zum Beispiel: „Welche Themen fehlen euch noch auf diesem Account?“
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.
Für Instagram Werbung in Form von klassischen Fotoanzeigen verwendest Du einfache Bilder in einem Quadrat- oder Querformat. Die Anzeigen werden auf Instagram zwischen den herkömmlichen Beiträgen gezeigt und unterscheiden sich von der Optik her durch den Hinweis “Gesponsert” von normalen Fotobeiträgen. Deine Bilder sollten in den Formaten PNG oder JPG vorliegen und die empfohlene Auflösung von 1.080 x 1.080 Pixel besitzen.

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.

Als Teil des Online Marketings ist Affiliate Marketing eine besondere Form des provisionsbasierten Bezahlungsmodells: Sogenannte Publisher oder auch Affiliates (Webseitenbetreiber) veröffentlichen Werbung von sogenannten Merchants oder Advertisern (die werbetreibenden Unternehmen) – kommt es hierbei zu einem Lead oder Sale, erhält der Publisher eine Provision.
Genius doesn’t come from stagnation and the thing I respect about QuickSprout is that you’re willing to actually test things and then report back so we don’t have to. As much as we love to play upstanding citizen, it’s no secret that sex sells… especially on a visual platform like instagram. I think it’s very interesting and controversial that you explored its “value” in branding.

Your strategies were really interesting. I hadn’t considered using my instagram quite that way. I actually have been having a lot of success using it to build my list, and not only that – my open rates stay at 40% or higher from the subscribers I generate from it. I grew my email list to about 40K in 6 months with my account running free events – in my case fitness challenges. It has been super effective for really connecting with my audience, as I get to be more personal and interactive with them and offer them great content daily that they engage with and it strengthens the connection they have to my brand. I’m around 118K on insta and I just really love the app. I will say in the past 6 months or so I’ve noticed less engagement than I did last year – and that may be because more and more people are using the app, especially in the health and fitness space. But it is still a great way to build celebrity, establish credibility, connect with and build your tribe and really make an impact on people on a personal level. I can’t go anywhere without being recognized from Instagram, it’s happened everywhere I’ve been in the last 2 years from Austin to Denver to San Francisco – I mean, who is ever without their “life device” aka phone these days….I did a cool podcast about how I’ve been using it for James Schramko a few months back if you want to listen to some of the ways I’ve been using it. http://www.superfastbusiness.com/business/how-to-grow-your-instagram-audience-with-betty-rocker/
Hey dear, really a great post, and briefly explained step by step. There are various ways to make some extra good bucks from instagram and people do earn a good money from it. I have visited many platforms for information but very few provide valid and genuine info. You are one of them. During my research I got to find a very useful and genuine way to earn money from instagram and I have been using it since last 2 weeks and have earn a few 100$. That link really helped me a lot. I am posting the link over here, hope it may help you as well,yoy can check it for self.
Influencer mit einer großen Reichweite werden im Regelfall von Interessenten angeschrieben, um einen Sponsored-Post zu veröffentlichen. Man kann aber auch selbst aktiv werden und im Internet relevante Unternehmen recherchieren, die zur gewählten Branche passen. Eine Alternative sind Netzwerke, die auf Kooperationen spezialisiert sind. Sie verbinden Influencer mit Werbeagenturen.

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


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.
Das Gleiche gilt für den Fall, wenn Du Anzeigen in den Ferien aufgeben willst. Diese kosten im direkten Vergleich mehr als Werbeanzeigen, die Du an normalen Arbeitstagen schaltest. Du kannst die durchschnittlichen Kosten für Instagram Werbung senken, wenn Du der Plattform erlaubst, dass Du Deine Anzeigen auch in weiteren Netzwerken platziert. Des Weiteren solltest Du in regelmäßigen Abständen Deine Anzeigen optimieren, denn dadurch kannst Du die Kosten senken.

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.

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.

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
