The easiest way to get a lot from your influencer partners in your affiliate program is to set up a compensation plan with them where they’re paid a flat amount of money in exchange for promoting your products or services on their feed. Most influencers do not like working on a commission basis. They would much rather get cash upfront. If your brand were willing to do this, this would be the best way to get their attention. You could even work out a zero commission deal with them where they don’t earn commission from the sales they refer at all. If the influencer is really powerful, you might even come out ahead despite the upfront risk.
First off lets talk about what DOESN’T WORK, because if you can learn what DOESN’T work first, then you can just spend time looking for all the easy affiliate offerings that WILL WORK for your Instagram following. I teach all of this in my InstaWealth Growth System, so if you want to let me teach it to you STEP-BY-STEP then signup. You’ll be able to watch over 80 easy to follow along video guides. I even update it frequently at no additional cost.
Affiliate marketing now faces a critical transition: with social media becoming increasingly shopper-friendly, bloggers are dropping their websites for Instagram fame. After previously relying on “publishers” to drive traffic for clients as part of an affiliate program, affiliate-focused agencies must now quickly get up to speed on new tactics, social platforms, and strategies to serve brands who are now seeking more comprehensive results from a diverse range of channels – not just web. With consumers swiping up on Instagram Stories to shop the looks of their favorite social media influencers, the convenience of shopping via social media is increasingly becoming the norm for shoppers looking to purchase on-the-go. Those affiliate marketers who are still only investing in website publishers and click-through metrics now run the risk of missing broad swaths of new customers and business on social.
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.
Ich habe mich dafür entschieden, hinter jedem Affiliate-Link ein Sternchen * einzufügen. Ganz oben oder in der Sidebar in meinen Blogs und Affiliate-Sites steht dann die Erklärung (* = Affiliatelinks/Werbelinks). „Affiliatelink“ als Begriff dürfte dem durchschnittlichen Internet-Nutzer eher unbekannt sein und ist damit rechtlich nicht sicher. Es gab z.B. Gerichtsentscheidungen bzgl. der Kennzeichnung „sponsored by“, was als nicht ausreichend befunden wurde. Das dürfte auch auf „Affiliatelink“ zutreffen. Deshalb gebe ich hier zudem „Werbelink“ an.
Trovare programmi affiliate, poi, è ancora più facile. O si cerca l’esistenza di programmi in settori e per brand specifici, oppure ci si iscrive gratuitamente a portali di affiliate marketing in cui poter aderire a svariati programmi. Tra questi segnalo: Shareasale, Tradedoubler, Awin e molti altri (una semplice ricerca online ti restituirà decine e decine di portali in cui trovare programmi affiliate divisi per categorie merceologiche).
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).
I have to agree with @Beatrix Willius…maybe I missed the whole point of this experiment. I have nothing against beautiful women promoting anything. (I’m a huge UFC fan) but based on your experiment I have to assume you’re only interested in getting leads from wealthy male entrepreneurs? There are quite a few of us females with lots of cash to invest as well.
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.
