With the boom in subscription boxes, unboxing videos have become quite popular. If your audience spends a lot of time on YouTube, then partner with an influencer who can showcase your product. The benefit of influencer marketing is how personal it is. Think about how powerful your campaign will be when followers feel as though they’re experiencing the unboxing along with the influencer. They’ll likely be receptive to clicking the link the influencer shares in order to learn more about you and your products.
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?
Eine exzellente Taktik, um es auf die nächste Ebene zu schaffen ist es, Domain Experts und Influencer zu kontaktieren und zu fragen, ob sie Content für dich schreiben, entweder gegen Bezahlung oder im Austausch gegen Sichtbarkeit. Ganz richtig, das hat noch nicht wirklich etwas mit Linkbuilding zu tun, macht dich aber bekannter und zeigt, dass du nicht nur auf das schnelle Geld im Internet aus bist.
This is one of the best ways for influencers to get their traffic to convert to sales. If your Instagram is full of beautiful lifestyle images, that people are curious about, then by letting them know they can shop these items is key. @sheshopped has done this on her Instagram and the page on her website has all of her shoppable Instagram photos, and when you click on one, you are given some information on it, and you can click through to the store.
Das soziale Netzwerk baut die angebotenen Features immer weiter aus. Während man zu längst vergessenen Zeiten ausschließlich mit Hashtags versehene Fotos auf der Plattform posten konnte, besteht mittlerweile unter anderem die Möglichkeit über die App zu chatten, Stories, die à la Snapchat 24 Stunden sichtbar sind, hochzuladen und bezahlte Werbung zu schalten. Diese Optionen sind für Firmen und Marketer demnach mehr als attraktiv und halten zahllose Möglichkeiten bereit, kreativ, individuell und bestensfalls authentisch zu werben. Die folgenden 11Strategien schaffen eine Grundlage für die ideale Instagram-Präsenz.
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.

Eine exzellente Taktik, um es auf die nächste Ebene zu schaffen ist es, Domain Experts und Influencer zu kontaktieren und zu fragen, ob sie Content für dich schreiben, entweder gegen Bezahlung oder im Austausch gegen Sichtbarkeit. Ganz richtig, das hat noch nicht wirklich etwas mit Linkbuilding zu tun, macht dich aber bekannter und zeigt, dass du nicht nur auf das schnelle Geld im Internet aus bist.
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 🙂
Was sich kompliziert anhört, ist scheinbar eine Erfolgsgeschichte. Im Juni 2015 vermeldete der Service, dass sich über 850.000 Instagram-Nutzer angemeldet haben und E-Mails von Liketoknow.it erhalten wollen. Gleichzeitig sind tausende Influencer an Bord, die ihre Fotos mit den passenden Links versehen. Und auch Brands nutzen den Service, um in den eigenen Instagram-Kanälen direkt auf die Produkte zu verweisen. „Online-Händler sollten Liketoknow.it als Content Marketing mit einem Retargeting-Element verstehen. Die Nutzer haben sich speziell für ein Produkt interessiert und weitere Informationen darüber angefordert“, erklärt der CEO und Mitgründer von Rewardstyle Baxter Box, der das Unternehmen zusammen mit seiner Frau Amber Venz Box gegründet hat. Zu den Partnern der ersten Stunde gehörten Asos und Urban Outfitters, auch die Vogue monetarisiert ihren Instagram-Account. Das Tool sorgte in den ersten 15 Monaten seines Bestehens für 30 Millionen US-Dollar in Sales und ist mittlerweile in elf Ländern verfügbar.
Seit Mitte 2016 kann das Nutzerprofil auf Instagram in einen Business-Account umgewandelt werden. Mit einem geschäftlichen Profil können die Nutzer auf spezielle Statistiken zugreifen, diverse Kontaktmöglichkeiten hinzufügen und können Social Media Werbung direkt in der mobilen Anwendung erstellen. Dadurch eignet sich Instagram bestens für Marketing-Maßnahmen. Auf Instagram Werbung schalten können die Nutzer ohne einen großen Aufwand. Die Werbung erscheint zwischen den einzelnen Beiträgen in Form von Videos oder Fotos und wird auf die Nutzer und deren Vorlieben individuell abgestimmt. Seit Anfang 2018 können deutsche Nutzer von Instagram auf der Plattform einkaufen. Durch ein einfaches Antippen der markierten Produkte auf den Werbebildern erhalten die Nutzer weitere Informationen und Preise. Das Ganze funktioniert im Grunde wie ein visuelles Schaufenster.
Mit Instagram Geld verdienen ist garnicht so schwer. Man muss halt - wie so oft im Leben - irgendwo anfangen. Der aus meiner Sicht wichtigste Aspekt ist bei Instagram jedoch die Authentizität von Inhalten und Followern. Wer mit geklauten Fake-Bildern oder gekauften Followern Geld verdienen will, der wird nicht all zu weit kommen. Vielleicht klappt es kurzfristig. Ein nachhaltiges Modell ist aber immer empfehlenswerter. Weitere Geschäftsmodelle um online Geld verdienen zu können findest du auch hier.
Immer mehr Unternehmen und Selbstständige schalten Werbung auf der Plattform Instagram. Dank der großen Beliebtheit des Online-Dienstes besitzt Instagram viele aktive Nutzer. Dadurch wird die Instagram Werbung von den Nutzern deutlich aktiver wahrgenommen als die klassische Print- und TV-Werbung. Instagram Werbung schalten kann jeder ohne große Vorkenntnisse. Ein weiterer Vorteil der beliebten Plattform sind die transparenten und vergleichsweise niedrigen Kosten für Instagram Werbung. Du erreichst mit einem wesentlich kleineren Budget viel mehr potenzielle Käufer als mit anderen Werbemaßnahmen. Der Aufwand hält sich in Grenzen und Du kannst innerhalb von wenigen Minuten optisch ansprechende Werbeanzeigen in Form von Bildern und Videos erstellen. Dank der verschiedenen Vorteile lohnt sich die Instagram Werbung für Unternehmen jeder Art, für jeden Dienstleister und für alle Selbstständigen. Außer für B2C-Unternehmen sind die Werbeanzeigen auf der Plattform auch für alle B2B-Unternehmen interessant.
On the one hand I have to agree with some of previous commenters who failed to see a clear objective of this experiment. Was it to show how Instagram can help ALL types of businesses because to me the tactics you used seemed best suited to lifestyle/consumer brands not so much professional services. Also, as a female, and long-time reader of your blog, I was a little disappointed at the sexist overtones of some of your tactics – I don’t see how bikini clad models have to do with entrepreneurship or your brand in general.

I think that is a big lesson on what not to do on Instagram unless you target market your audience. Of all these things, the Contest is probably the only takeaway for anyone interested in Instagram that will hit a large enough audience to get you your followers. You put a lot of money in to get some confusion about your Brand and your Credibility. If I had signed up for your Instagram account because i like your marketing wisdom and I found a lot of women in bathing suits , I would have deleted your account as you are turning off 50% of your market. If your market is entrepreneurs who like almost naked women and fancy jets then go target them.

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.

I’m also going to adjust the strategy by stopping the prizes. I will also post more personalizd images on my profile such as of my family and leverage female and lifestyle accounts to promote me. For example, I may do a video Skype session with a female model, create a screenshot of it, and have her post it on her Instagram profile, with a mention of me giving her business or marketing advice.
If you're running a business and you want to generate more sales, you should take a course workshop! This Instagram course will teach you a proven system for turning your followers into customers. This is great for: Coaches / Bloggers / Artists / Consultants / Product Sellers / Designers / Online Course Creators / even a lawyer. You'll get 100% refund if you don't see results in 14 days.

Many people don’t realize that you can make so much money selling T-Shirts on Instagram which doesn’t even require you to spend a dollar on T-Shirts before you could start selling them. Please checkout that FREE article I provided, it’s filled with a gold mine of instructions on how you can try one of my strategies out without a single cost to you! I’ve seen so many people fail at selling T-Shirts on Instagram because they don’t understand who their followers are.

One thing I found odd with Clickbank is that to register, your IP address needs to match the country of the home address you are inputting. If you are traveling around, this makes it hard to register for an account. My application was immediately denied because although my home address is in Canada, my IP was coming from Europe as I was currently traveling when I applied for Clickbank.

Warum der Hashtag Werbung ausreicht, bleibt mir nach wie vor ein Rätsel. Ich mein, warum zwingt man die ganzen “Influencer” nicht dazu, klar und deutlich Werbung oder Anzeige zu schreiben, wenn sie dort schon mit Beiträgen Geld verdienen? Ein Hashtag ist nur ein Hashtag von vielen und viele hängen das #Werbung auch nur am Ende, bei all den anderen Hashtags mit dran. Ganz merkwürdige Regelung, wie ich finde.


However, more recently, people have been using affiliate links in social media, particularly on Facebook and Instagram. Affiliate marketing is ideal for Instagrammers who have a large audience to promote and sell products to but have no actual products to sell. Instead of creating their own product, Instagrammers can simply promote someone else’s, taking a percentage of the profit once someone from their Insta-audience makes a purchase. Sounds appealing right?
When an Instagrammer posts a product picture on Instagram, they usually tag the brand they are promoting in the comment as well as a link to the specific product. This means that when people are browsing and reading the comments your brand will be on the eyes of potential customers. If they click on the tag, they will be directed to your Instagram page, and if they copy and paste the link to the product you will gain more traffic so it’s a win-win situation.
If you have a special offer or want to promote specific products or get your audience excited about an upcoming launch or campaign, use influencer marketing. Because influencers are in front of your target audience, the influence they have over their followers and the established trust have the potential to drive a great deal of awareness to your brand. The key to successful influencer marketing is to use influencers who believe in your product and don’t promote products that compete with it.

To be a leader in affiliate marketing, networks and agencies must recognize that advertisers are seeking more than just one-off leads or incremental sales. They want advocates and storytellers who can engage potential shoppers, demonstrate vertical expertise, and strengthen brand loyalty to inspire a long-term relationship. Influencers allow brands to take advantage of all the benefits of affiliate marketing, including transparency and guaranteed exposure while adding the power to connect with shoppers and strengthen brand affinity. Affiliate marketing is a proven channel, strengthened by its access to data and quantifiable results. The opportunity is now for both advertisers and their affiliate networks to embrace influencer marketing and make it as cost-effective and transparent as they have affiliate marketing. In this case, the whole – affiliate marketing and influencer marketing – is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.


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.
Doing affiliate marketing on Instagram has its peculiarities, but the key idea remains the same – you don’t need to sell your own products, being able to promote someone else’s goods and get a commission for each transaction. It takes a few simple steps. Sign up to an advertiser that has an affiliate program and enroll with it. Look at your Instagram profile analytically and decide if you’d like to use a personal account or launch a separate one to earn money through Instagram. Bear in mind that personal accounts seem more trustworthy and credible. Polish your account, come up with a catchy caption and attach a link to a profile. Ready? Now it’s time to make some money.
Influencer networks are companies that connect bloggers and influencers with brands. Some will have you apply for campaigns yourself while others will contact you if they have a brand who’s interested in you. For those networks where you apply yourself, they’ll have either a web platform or a phone app where you go in and look at all of the open campaigns and apply to those that interest you. Sometimes they’ll let you come up with a pitch that includes a rate you decide on yourself, other times it will be a fixed rate and you can decide if this amount is worth the effort of applying for and then, if you get picked, doing the work involved. Influencer networks can be a great tool, especially when you’re first starting out and want the chance to work with some bigger brands that might not yet have you on their radar.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
Zu erkennen ist ein Video als gesponsorter Post der Marke zalando im Instagram Newsfeed, wo ein langer Jumpsuit beworben wird (linkes Bild). Über einen Klick auf “Gesponsert” können Nutzer entweder die Werbung verbergen oder mehr über die Instagram-Werbeanzeige erfahren (mittiges Bild). Möchte der Nutzer mehr Informationen einsehen, erklärt Instagram, was es mit dem gesponsorten Label auf sich hat (rechtes Bild).
I think the whole thing with it now being paid for has ruin what it is. It was a chance that every day people got a chance to feel special and be known just for doing what they do…eat out, shop, create etc. Now its just another platform in which experts have taken over and turned into a platform for making money which ruin what it is…. cant just be liked for who you are now people are projecting this “perfect” life bullshit and I’m so over it… Even when celebrities started getting on there it was cool because you got to see a personal side to them and once again they sell out for money (or pay someone to do it for them) and once again just turned into another social outlet taken over by fake and rich people… lame
Unter dem Titel “Die Macht der Bilder für gezieltes Geld verdienen auf Instagram” beleuchten wir im vorliegenden Beitrag die Merchant Perspektive. In einem zweiten Beitrag wird auf das Geld verdienen für Affiliates eingegangen. Dabei ist die Grenze zwischen beiden Akteuren nicht immer eindeutig. Viele Inhalte gelten sowohl für die Unternehmerperspektive als auch für Affiliates. Beispielsweise werden berühmte Persönlichkeiten unter Merchants aufgeführt, obwohl sie neben der Vermarktung von eigenen Interessen auch für andere Produkte werben.
Im Übrigen muss die Auszeichnung nichts Negatives sein. Schließlich ist den meisten Followern ohnehin bewusst, dass die Influencer die teilweise aufwendigen Kanäle mit täglichen Postings nicht umsonst betreiben, sondern damit auch Geld verdienen oder sogar ihren Lebensunterhalt damit bestreiten. Wer damit offen umgeht, ist authentisch. Die Berliner Lifestyle-Bloggerin Masha Sedgwick erzählt im Interview mit der W&V, dass ihre Leserschaft auf werbliche Posts nicht anders reagiert als auf persönliche Posts. Es hinge jedoch auch davon ab, wie diese gestaltet sind.
With success and online recognition comes some responsibility. You can use your online reach to tell other people that sex sells ( a bit obvious by now) or you can write something interesting that furthers knowledge and fuels productive conversations. Adding boobs and butts in the name of testing and experimentation is not adding any value to the conversation. You put so much work on your blog and a ton of people appreciate it. There was not need for this. I don’t care much about these things normally but those pictures really upset me.. maybe because I thought you were a thoughtful guy. Nevermind.

If you want to target a specific group of people instead of your entire audience, then use affiliate marketing. If you’re launching a new product feature or an entirely new product that power users will be receptive to, use affiliate marketing to target specific sites that these power users spend time on. Instead of marketing to everyone, you speak to the people most likely to use your product.
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.
Genius doesn’t come from stagnation and the thing I respect about QuickSprout is that you’re willing to actually test things and then report back so we don’t have to. As much as we love to play upstanding citizen, it’s no secret that sex sells… especially on a visual platform like instagram. I think it’s very interesting and controversial that you explored its “value” in branding.
Viele bekannte Persönlichkeiten nutzen Instagram, um mit ihren Fans oder Bewunderern in Kontakt zu treten – Musiker, Künstler, Sportler, YouTuber und viele mehr. Auch sie nutzen die Plattform oftmals nicht nur als Fotoalbum persönlicher Momente oder als reines Portfolio ihrer Leistungen, sondern als Promotionskanal für eigene Projekte, andere Marken oder eigenständige Arbeiten.
Als Alternative zu einem Dienst wie Linktree, bietet es sich an einen eigenen Blog im Instagram-Profil zu verlinken. Auf diese Weise können beispielsweise Produktreviews auf Instagram angeteasert werden und auf den dazugehörigen Blogbeitrag verweisen, in dem wiederum die passenden Affiliate-Links untergebracht werden können. So lassen sich Affiliate-Links mithilfe von Blogbeiträgen auch über weitere Soziale Netzwerke verbreiten, um die gesamte Community zu erreichen.
This was an awesome post, but your comment about leveraging other entrepreneurial accounts I think is spot on. Having @BussinessPeopleInc (64k followers) or accounts like that post a quote of yours or something will probably reach your target demo much more effectively than trying to replicate accounts like Dan B’s. I’m sure you know this by now though. Great blog filled with invaluable information. Keep it coming brother.
One big pro to Tradedoubler is that they track the user through cookies, even if the user has turned cookies off. For example, most affiliate programs track users through cookies. If a user clicks your link and goes to a website, but doesn’t make a purchase, they will be tracked for a period of days (usually 30 days). If within those 30 days they come back and make a purchase, you earn your commission.
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?
One way to increase your chances of getting good ROI through Instagram marketing is by being as targeted as possible in the people you’re going after. For example, if you have an online store that sells formal shoes, you might want to target influencers that specialize in “professional footwear for men” as opposed to influencers that are in “men’s fashion.”
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.
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.”
