Instagram – Instagram excels with brand exposure, but the UI makes it less likely that followers will click to purchase. The scrolling style of viewing posts as well as the link only being available in the bio lends itself to quick Likes and fewer clicks. However, I have seen some Instagram influencers succeed using Instagram Stories.Instagram Stories provide the personal one on one engagement feel that lends itself to conversions as well as an explanation on how followers can click on the affiliate link.
In most cases, organizations that employ an affiliate strategy tend to be in the e-commerce space. That’s because it is fairly simple for e-commerce brands to track purchases based on a single tracking link. Other types of business, like B2B software or services, tend to be ill suited for affiliate programs because of long and complex sales cycles.

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.
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.

As for Instagram, having a business account makes it even easier for brands to contact you but I would personally shy away from switching since there’s a lot of whisper in the blogging world that Instagram will soon make business accounts pay to get their content seen by anyone.

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!
