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.

The main distinction now between affiliate and influencer marketing is simply the channel itself and the way the influencer is paid. Affiliate marketing sees affiliates paid based on web traffic performance (CPA) while influencer marketing sees influencers often paid flat fees upfront in return for social traffic performance. Brands now have visibility into the same metrics for both strategies and can access indicators of performance and traffic via Google Analytics for web-based publishers and Instagram Insights for social based publishers. Despite these similarities, influencer and affiliate marketing are still referred to as two separate strategies and are often managed by different teams in the same organization.

Now if your really want to run with this idea, or you’ve tried this and found success. Then go and find a bunch of amazing products that fit with your followers (or a wide demographic) and create a simple product review website and send your followers (from your URL link in your BIO) or your (Instagram Viral Story) to a website full of affiliate offerings!
Many marketers use automated email and drip sequences to introduce affiliate products and services to their subscribers. I use an auto-response sequence through MailerLite, a top-rated email marketing service and a fantastic alternative to MailChimp. You could send new subscribers three to five automated emails over a period of weeks/months and include affiliate links where applicable. Additionally, I see many marketers using landing page tools like Leadpages and Instapage to get subscribers and sales.
Nowadays, the majority of large businesses offer affiliate programs. So find ones that are in your niche. If you are popular on Instagram for fashion, then you should opt for fashion affiliate programs. If your Instagram audience follows you because you are well known in the fitness industry, then you need to find health and fitness affiliate programs. Your following won’t purchase items that aren’t relevant to their interests. So choose affiliate programs that sell products your audience can relate to and that will add value to their lives.
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.

Ja, dieser Beitrag hat einen SEO-Fokus. Ganz klar, ich bin und bleibe in meinem Herzen ein SEO-Nerd. Es gibt noch viele weitere Trends, die du im Auge behalten solltest. Damit meine ich nicht, dass du auf jeden Trend aufspringen musst. Vielmehr solltest du für dich entscheiden, was dein Unternehmen, dein Imperium voranbringt. Jeder hat einen eigenen Stil und das ist auch im Affiliate Marketing nicht anders.
You could also set up a partial flat payment along with your commission payment. Many influencers don’t understand the true power of affiliate marketing and they need someone to guide them. If you can paint a picture on how they can earn so much more money on consistent referrals as opposed to one-time placements you might be able to get a discount on their flat fee.
Hello, I am very new to Shopify and am looking for ways to promote my site. Love the idea of IG influencers. I already have an IG account which I opened so I could hear from my Grandchildren (really do not know how to use it) , can I open a second account strictly for a business? I have been on the site and cannot find any information about opening a second account. Thanks for any advice and this is wonderful information that is being shared on this blog.

I promote many products and services, so I wouldn’t want to use my link to market only one. On the other hand, you might be focused and very passionate about promoting one item. You could add your affiliate link—shortened, cloaked or branded—to your profile or create an account specifically for that item. For instance, you’re passionate about writing and want to promote Grammarly, a free grammar checker, and vocabulary enhancement app. You create an account called @awesomewriter and posts writing tips and motivational quotes. Your bio reads, “Improve your writing with this free software app. Click below to learn more. #Ad.”
