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.

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.
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.
Finally it’s possible to find out what your audience wants. There’s no need to go outside and ask pedestrians for their opinion. With a recently launched interactive poll sticker, which is part of the Instagram Stories, it’s way easier. Want to collect feedback on the promoted product or gather more ideas from the audience? Create a survey in one tap! Ask a question and give two answers to choose from. Check out the statistics to see the votes. The poll will last for 24 hours. If needed, fine-tune your affiliate marketing campaign according to the results obtained.
Zum einen sind die Storys, die 24 Stunden sichtbar sind und danach verfallen, bei allen Usern das Erste, was sie sehen, wenn die App geöffnet wird. So sieht man das Profilbild des Accounts umringt mit einem rötlichen, instagram-farbenen Kreis. Die aktuellsten Storys werden den Abonnenten derweil immer als erstes oben links angezeigt. Das bedeutet für dich, dass regelmäßige Story-Updates dir quasi die Poleposition in der App der User sichern.
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.
Building on last year’s inaugural edition of The Awin Report, the first, global definitive guide to the industry, this new and updated version for 2018 provides a fresh take on the market as it stands. Utilizing data and insights tracked across our 15 different markets, over 100,000 affiliate partners and 13,000 brands worldwide, this amounts to an invaluable guide for the modern marketer on affiliate marketing’s DNA.

Influencer marketing is the process of partnering with influential people in your niche and getting their help to promote your products and services. This form of marketing is one of the quickest, most powerful ways to get brand exposure in a short amount of time. Influencer marketing is personal by nature, so when the influencers have influence over your ideal target audience, their followers are much more likely to take action to find out more about you.


Neben Hashtags wie #Werbung oder #Anzeige besteht auch die Möglichkeit, in eigenen Worten darauf hinzuweisen, dass es sich um eine Kooperation handelt. Dies muss dann aber in aller Deutlichkeit geschehen. Dr. Thomas Schwenke schlägt in seinem Gastbeitrag auf Socialhub Varianten wie „Dieser Beitrag ist mit finanzieller Unterstützung von X entstanden“ oder „X hat das Produkt kostenlos gestellt“ vor. Es muss deutlich werden, dass der Influencer für die Kooperation in irgendeiner Form entlohnt wurde.
Jeder Marketingkanal bedarf einer speziellen Marketingstrategie – so auch Instagram. Zum Beispiel sind veröffentlichte Bilder nicht mit einer URL bzw. einem Link versehen. Zudem können Nutzer keine Bilder teilen. Dadurch ist es schwierig, unmittelbaren Traffic oder eine Konversion zu messen. Instagram ist daher als digitaler Branding Kanal einzuordnen.

When you partner with an influencer with a large following, make sure there’s a clear CTA. The influencer will get engagement in the form of likes and comments, but you need their followers to click through to your page. Instead of asking an influencer to show your product and mention it by name, give them a promo code to share with their followers. The benefit of a special promo code is getting followers to act and the ability to track conversions based on it. For example, you can see how many people used the code to buy something during the campaign.
Wichtig ist hierbei natürlich, dass die Verbindung zwischen den Click, Lead oder Sale und dem Affiliate festgehalten und getrackt wird, um sicherzustellen, dass die Provision ausgezahlt wird. Die Links, die der Affiliate veröffentlicht sind aus diesem Grunde mit einem individuellen und einzigartigen Code versehen, der diese Verbindung herstellt. Wichtig dabei:

Once you’ve established yourself as an expert in your field, you can create digital resources for your readers and followers to download for a fee. Travel guides, blogging tips, a fitness program, you name it. If people are loving what you’re “selling” (for free) on your blog or Instagram, chances are you’ll get interest in more detailed, targeting information that you only offer to those who are willing to shell out a few bucks.


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.
On Instagram, hashtags are your best friend. They’ll put your post in front of thousands more people. That will earn you more followers, and, hopefully, more sales. Make sure you add relevant hashtags to all posts promoting the product or service. Going back to our health food blogger example, she might add hashtags like #healthyliving and #cleaneating to her affiliate posts.
Du kannst die Social Media Werbung auf Instagram als CPA (Cost per action) abrechnen lassen. Bei diesem beliebten Kostenmodell bezahlst Du für unterschiedliche Aktionen, die direkt mit Deiner Werbung zusammenhängen. Eine ziemlich innovative Strategie ist CPL (Cost per like). Bei dieser bezahlst Du für Deine Instagram Werbung nur, wenn ein Nutzer Deinen Beitrag geliked hat.
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.

Your customers' photos: Linked to this is the use of User Generated Content on your account. Get customers to share their images of your products and re-gram (download "Repost for Instagram" app to repost your customers' photos). This is a proven successful method of selling and would make a great addition to your account. It also calls for you to start up your own unique hashtag which you can then promote to all your customers: it’s a seriously slick way to make yourself stand out from the crowd. For example, White Castle asks their customers to use #MyCrave to their photos. Now when they see them using that hashtag, they can repost (or regram) their photos to their Instagram account. Here's an example:
Here is a high impact method of engagement with influencers: why not invite them to contribute to the design of your affiliate programs? It is not going to be easy. But if you succeed, this will be a great method to create a sense of ownership in affiliates. Of course, if they get involved and then realize that it was all a big public relations hoax, this method could backfire. Like all areas of marketing and communication, you need to come across sincerely.
If you focus on a niche that has a highly engaged following it is more likely to be successful. @afterpay obsession is one of those affiliates. It is for people who want to shop at stores that offer Afterpay. If a brand has any great promotions, they will let their users know so they can grab the bargain and pay in installments. They have a very active Facebook page but they use their Instagram page to highlight products, but also to encourage brands to work with them.

Include relevant information about the photograph and ask a question to your followers. This is important to drive engagement to your posts and it gives people the information they are looking for. Geo-tagging can help when customers want to find out where something is. A blogger utilising geo-tagging might include where they are in the photograph, while brands should geo-tag store locations to make it easier for people to find.
Here are some more influencer networks that I have absolutely no experience with but that I’ve found online and are recommended by other bloggers, in alphabetical order (*): Acorn Influence, Activate by Bloglovin’, AdvoWire, BlogHer, Blog Meets Brand, BrandBacker, Clever, Content BLVD, Everywhere Agency, Experticity, Famebit, Fitfluencial, Hypetap, Influence Central, Influincity, Instabrand, Massive Sway, Megan Media, Network Niche, NeoReach, One2One Network, Pollinate Media, She Knows Media, She Speaks, Snapfluence, Speakr, Sway Group,  The Shelf Network, and Tribe Group.
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.
In der Regel wird ein Großteil des Einkommens einer Affiliate-Seite über Googles organische Suche generiert. Wie die letzten Jahre gezeigt haben, wird der Algorithmus immer intelligenter und trifft nicht selten Nischenseiten besonders hart. Google ist dabei nicht gezielt hinter Affiliate Marketer her, sondern viele Projekte sind schlicht und einfach minderwertig. Google Penguin, Google Panda und auch Google Fred heißen die Schreckgespenster.
Hi Breno! Thanks for reading my post. How to create engaging content for influencers is a great idea for a post all on its own! It’s a tough line to walk because, of course, you want your post to translate to sales, but you also don’t want people to immediately shut off and scroll past you because they know your post is an ad. Thus, my short answer would be to work on including some sort of call to action within the photo. Make the photo engaging and encourage people to like and/or comment. Perhaps some sort of contest? Keep us posted on how it goes and what you decide to do. Cheers!
Thank you for this amazing post! It has definitely put my mind into set and changed a lot about the way I will post and do things on Instagram. Such a great help! And I did DM you on Instagram. Hoping to hear from you, had a few questions for you there! And another thing…. I love your instagram and blog posts. I have been following for a while now and definitely you are a huge influencer! Thanks again 🙂
Schickt ein Unternehmen ungefragt Produkte an einen Influencer, ist die Sache bislang nicht eindeutig; ein wegweisendes Urteil fehlt. Bespricht ein Influencer das Produkt sachlich und subjektiv, müsste er dies wahrscheinlich nicht kennzeichnen. Er oder sie wurde schließlich nicht dafür bezahlt und gibt lediglich seine bzw. ihre persönliche Meinung mit Pro und Contra wieder. Ein kurzer Hinweis, dass das Produkt zugeschickt oder kostenlos gestellt wurde, schadet jedoch nicht.
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.
Doberschütz nimmt den Kampf mit der großen Nummer aus den USA an. Doch es gibt mehrere Hürden: „Das größte Problem ist, die Menschen zur Anmeldung zu bewegen.“ Viele Otto-Normal-Instagram-Nutzer seien skeptisch, ihre Daten inklusive E-Mail-Adresse weiterzugeben, nur um dann die Outfits der Influencer shoppen zu können. Umso beeindruckender, dass es Liketoknow.it geschafft hat, so viele Instagram-Nutzer auch in den eigenen Dienst zu ziehen. Weil die Anmeldungen ausbleiben, musste der StyleLike-Gründer schnell umdenken. „Wir schicken die Nutzer jetzt ohne Anmeldung direkt zu Shopping-Landingpages der Influencer.“ Damit gleicht StyleLike jetzt eher den beiden anderen Konkurrenten Like2Buy und Have2Have.it.
Immer haarscharf an der Kante zur Schleichwerbung: Einige Influencer auf Instagram leben gefährlich. Wer nämlich Werbung und Produktplatzierungen in sozialen Medien nicht richtig kennzeichnet, kann dafür abgemahnt werden. Das gilt jedoch nicht nur für die Instagramer selbst. Auch die Unternehmen und Agenturen, die Influencer beauftragen, stehen in der Pflicht. Dabei ist die richtige Auszeichnung gar nicht so schwierig. Wir geben praktische Tipps.
Wenn Nutzer deinen Account auf einem Foto, Video oder in ihrer Story verlinken, erhältst du eine Benachrichtigung. Das bietet für dich eine willkommene Grundlage für eine Marketingaktion. Denn so sehen zunächst die Follower der Person, die dich erwähnt hat, deinen Account, aber du kannst den Inhalt der Person auch reposten. Mit den nutzergenerierten Inhalten zeigst du Usernähe und bleibst mit deiner Zielgruppe in Verbindung.
Social media - can you remember life before Facebook and Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn? No longer just a place to meet your friends, social media is big business when it comes to advertising and marketing. Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist; now it has become one of the largest marketing methods to both small and large businesses. As a form of media, it has many different marketing strings to its bow , and one of these is the use of influencers.
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.

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.

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.

Kann man als Publisher bei Instagram Geld verdienen? Bisher ist das vor allem Influencern gelungen: Modeblogger und andere Sternchen machen mit Schleichwerbung für Fitnessprogramme und Gesundheits-Tees viel Geld. Aber immer wenn ein neues großes Ökosystem entsteht, kommen schlaue Affiliates und versuchen ein eigenes Business aufzubauen. Bei Instagram geht das jetzt gerade erst los und wir haben uns die Goldgräber der ersten Stunde angeschaut und analysiert.
Create an Engaged Community – An engaged community, that comment on, like, and share your posts is key to becoming a successful influencer. To create this type of community you will need to put in the work – constantly and consistently post high-quality images that interest and inspire your audience, ask questions, respond to comments, and become a well-known figure within your niche.
Here are some more influencer networks that I have absolutely no experience with but that I’ve found online and are recommended by other bloggers, in alphabetical order (*): Acorn Influence, Activate by Bloglovin’, AdvoWire, BlogHer, Blog Meets Brand, BrandBacker, Clever, Content BLVD, Everywhere Agency, Experticity, Famebit, Fitfluencial, Hypetap, Influence Central, Influincity, Instabrand, Massive Sway, Megan Media, Network Niche, NeoReach, One2One Network, Pollinate Media, She Knows Media, She Speaks, Snapfluence, Speakr, Sway Group,  The Shelf Network, and Tribe Group.

Ebenfalls beliebt bei Instagram sind Affiliate-Links für App-Installationen, die durch Plattformen wie SharePop ermöglicht werden. Dort können Interessenten Kampagnen wählen und erhalten dafür einen Tracking-Link. Dieser wird auf Instagram beworben und, wenn ein User die App installiert, folgt eine Vergütung. Neben Apps kann man auch Content großer Marken bewerben und wird für jeden Klick belohnt.


As you can see, Instagram offers some genuine opportunities to make money online. Whether you want to become an Instagram influencer, sell physical products, photographs, or affiliate products, or become an Instagram expert in the freelancing field, there are possibilities for everyone. Whatever route you choose to go down, make sure you persevere, as the financial rewards can be more than worth it.
Mit die cleversten Errungenschaften der digitalen Welt sind die Möglichkeiten des Trackings. Das Tracking (auf Deutsch „Verfolgung“) beschreibt die technische Möglichkeit 100%ig nachzuvollziehen, welcher User nacheinander was gemacht hat. Es ermöglicht im Affiliate Marketing genau zu erkennen, wann ein User auf eine Anzeige geklickt hat, wohin ihn der entsprechende Link geführt hat, bis hin zu der Tatsache, welches Produkt er letztlich gekauft hat. Werbekampagnen können so, z.B. durch gezielt eingesetzte A/B Tests, perfekt optimiert werden und Affiliates erfolgsbasiert bezahlt werden.
