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.
Alternatively, to find niche affiliate programs, a basic Google search will suffice. Then simply sign up with the individual affiliate programs you like the look of and take it from there. There is no limit to how many affiliate programs you can sign up with, but make sure the products you are going to promote are high quality. If you promote products that aren’t up to scratch, you will lose the trust of your Insta-followers, and quickly lose your audience.
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!
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.
A landing page is often used to collect email addresses and sell products, but you could create a landing page containing numerous links to direct your IG traffic. Alternatively, you can use IG-centric apps that provide templates to feature various links, for example, LinkTree and Lnk.Bio. Their goals are to solve the one-link Insta dilemma. LinkTree states, “You only get one chance to link in Instagram. Make it do more.” Lnk.Bio reads, “Multiple links for your Instagram bio, the new way to improve your Instagram experience.” Both tools are easy to set up. You just connect your IG account, pick a template, add links, and you’re ready. LinkTree has a free and pro plan. Lnk.Bio has four plans including free, monthly, and lifetime. Both platforms provide basic analytics.
Instagram ist nach aktuellem Stand eines der beliebtesten sozialen Netzwerke, insbesondere bei jungen Menschen, die sich für Lifestyle interessieren. Auch in Deutschland wird die Foto-App immer beliebter und hat bereits Millionen von Menschen angezogen. Laut dem Markforschungsunternehmen Emarketer ist zu erwarten, dass die Nutzerzahlen von 11,2 Millionen im Jahr 2017 auf rund 16,3 Millionen steigen werden.

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.
Customers love promotions and deals. Instagrammers are no exception. What’s the point to paying the full price if you can get a couple percent off? Offering coupon codes is a good way to increase your following and generate more sales. There’s good news for affiliates who want to run exclusive coupons without providing a specific link. Some coupon codes don’t require a click to be tracked by affiliate networks.  
Do your due diligence and research your potential partner. Do any red flags pop up when you Google their name? Is there bad buzz around them in their specific niche? Do they play well with other Influencers and/or brands? This is important because the minute you attach your brand to a bad Influencer, it may take a long time for your reputation to recover.
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.
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.

Leveraging influencers tends to provide more marketing possibilities along with additional revenue, conversions, and customers with minimal effort involved for advertisers. Start by focusing on influential publishers that have a reach into the customers or niche you’re looking to tap into and initiate outreach by sharing an opportunity to collaborate. The already existing prominence that influencers have in affiliate marketing is steadily growing and now is the perfect time to incorporate them into your strategy.
Die Videoanzeigen werden wie die Photo Ads auf der Plattform zwischen den Beiträgen angezeigt. Die Instagram Werbung überzeugt zusätzlich mit akustischen, optischen oder bewegten Elementen. Du kannst Deine Video-Werbung mit einer maximalen Länge von 60 Sekunden veröffentlichen. Deine Videos müssen entweder in einem quadratischen Format oder im Querformat vorliegen. Die Videos dürfen maximal 4 GB groß sein.
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?“
Hast du es erstmal zum Influencer geschafft, melden sich die potentiellen Kunden oder deren Marketing Agenturen eigentlich häufig von alleine. Besser ist es allerdings, wenn du dir selbst deine Kunden, bzw. die Marken aussuchst, für die du gerne werben möchtest. Du selbst weißt schliesslich am besten, welche Brand zu dir passen würde. Und genau das wollen Marken: Authentische Botschafter, die eine Marke aus Überzeugung (und gegen Geld) bekannter machen und Reichweite ausbauen. Schreib also die Marken gerne mal an und schau was passiert. Wenn dir das zu viel Aufwand ist, schau gerne bei Plattformen wie Blogfoster oder Influry vorbei, um aus bestehenden Angeboten das passende auszusuchen.
Depth of discussion – lots of comments on a post may look impressive but look deeper to see what the followers are saying. Find an influencer who engages properly with the audience who in turn respond through discussion. Ten comments that are meaningful and stimulate a conversation are more useful than 100 comments purely complimenting the post. Follow this concept through to the types of posts that get the most likes; are they relevant to your business, or are they all favouring posts with a lighter tone or images?

While affiliate marketing is nothing new in principle, it is fairly new to the world of Instagram. In many ways, the pairing is a match made in heaven. Instagram followers are more likely to engage with branded content than other social media users. Instagram celebrities from Kim Kardashian to the Beauty Boys have garnered millions of loyal followers thanks to influencer strategies that tell consistently compelling stories.
Einige User halten es für angemessen, ihre Posts mit dem Hashtag #ad zu kennzeichnen. In Deutschland ist das nicht ausreichend. Auch #sponsored funktioniert nicht. Es muss sich um eine klare, deutsche Aussage halten: #anzeige oder #werbung sind das Mindestmaß. Besser ist es, im ersten Kommentar oder am Ende des Beitrags auf die Kooperation hinzuweisen.
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

Die Kosten für Deine Instagram Werbung hängen von Deinen Gebotsstrategien ab. Du hast bei Instagram genau die gleiche Wahl wie bei Facebook und kannst Dich für unterschiedliche Strategien entscheiden. Zusätzlich hast Du die Wahl zwischen einer manuellen und einer automatischen Gebotseinstellung. Die Kalkulation der Kosten für Instagram Werbung erfolgt auf die gleiche Art und Weise wie bei Facebook. Der Angebotspreis ist besonders wichtig. Hast Du Dich für eine manuelle Gebotseinstellung entschieden, erhält Instagram den genauen Gebotsbetrag, den Du für Deine Werbeanzeige maximal bezahlen willst. Entscheidest Du Dich stattdessen für eine automatische Gebotseinstellung, muss die Plattform für Deine Werbeanzeige ein passendes Gebot auswählen und die Kosten für Instagram Werbung individuell kalkulieren.
Geotagging und Hashtags: Über den Sticker oben rechts kannst du Hashtags und Local Tags in deine Story einbauen und deine Reichweite erhöhen. Wie bereits erwähnt: Suche bewusst Tags aus und überlade die Story nicht mit zu vielen Stickern. Die Größe und die Position kannst du mit ziehenden Bewegungen deiner Finger individuell an das Bild oder Video anpassen. Oder verstecke die Hashtags hinter einem Emoji. Mit einem gelungenen Einsatz von Hashtags in deiner Story landest du womöglich in der dazugehörigen Hashtag Story und machst deinen Content einem viel größeren Publikum zugänglich.

YouTube – The Google Darling does not disappoint. Videos allow for optimal search engine optimization and engagement, a winning combination. In addition, the influencer can easily place affiliate links in the video description and create a CTA requesting followers to click on it. Lastly, YouTube makes it easy to contact the influencer in one step by revealing an email address. Why, thank you YouTube! When a niche YouTube account appears in my search results, a small victory dance ensues.
Fohr Card: Registrieren Sie Ihr Instagram, Blog, YouTube-Kanal und andere soziale Plattformen, um eine Influencer Card zu erstellen. Diese zeigt Ihre unterschiedlichen Profile und Ihre Reichweite an, sodass Marken Sie finden können. Sie erhalten zudem Zugang zu einer Liste von Marken und deren Wünsche, so können Sie die Initiative ergreifen und diese ansprechen.
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.
Sponsored Posts wurden 2013 in den USA eingeführt. Zu den ersten bekannten Marken gehörten damals, unter anderem, Michael Kors, Levis und General Electric. Seit dem 20. April 2015 gibt es Instagram Werbung und Sponsored Posts auch in Deutschland. Zunächst sollen die Werbeanzeigen nur von ausgewählten Unternehmen geschaltet werden, die bereits auf der Plattform aktiv sind. Damit will Instagram sicherstellen, dass die Unternehmen viele Follower haben und die Werbung “kreativ und interessant” sei.
LIVESTRONG is a popular health and wellness site. They provide readers with content to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. They don’t sell products on their site, but sites like these are able to promote products, like yours, on their site and generate an income based on the purchases their audience makes on your site. Choose affiliates whose content closely matches your product, so that site visitors are already primed and interested to take the next step and click through.

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.
