Prior to any list creation, I identify my top niches to recruit from. As an example, I manage an all-natural cosmetic brand. I look beyond the general niche of beauty bloggers and focus recruitment one level deeper. The more specific the niche I find, the higher conversion rates I see.  One recruitment segment I’ve identified is vegan influencers. These micro-influencers may have smaller numbers in followers, but they have knowledge, passion and a sincere connection with their audience that results in an authentic representation of my merchant. Below is an example of one of my top performing influencers. While her numbers do not compete with Kardashian level influencers, her authenticity and engagement surpass those with higher followers.

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.
The approach you choose should also depend on how much you’re willing to spend. A larger budget allows you to partner with larger influencers who can get you as much exposure as possible. However, influencer marketing is known to be expensive. Another option is to target micro-influencers in your niche who don’t have millions of followers but have thousands of highly engaged followers.
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.
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.
Influencer marketing is extremely popular on social media. If you’re hoping to raise brand awareness in a short amount of time, choose the platform your audience spends the most time on and partner with influencers they’re likely to follow. The following examples focus on the three main platforms for influencer marketing: Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

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.
We hired someone off fiverr to manage our account for a month and our followers went up but engagement is still low and clicks to our site are low. I was wondering where you bought the 100k lifestyle page from? Was it one of those sites that show up in google like fameswap.com or viralinstas.com etc. or off ebay.com or did you reach out to the person via dm to buy it.
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.
Thank you Sina for this blogging tips, I had registered for your professional lifestyle blogging workshop at Modern Thrive that was cancelled, I was disappointed, and I know it had nothing to do with you. So I am glad you provide all this info. I am still waiting for Modern Thrive to reimburse me, others are waiting too !! I can now see some negative reviews from instructors and attendees about Modern Thrive and as a side note, I would advise you to not do business with them anymore. Thanks for all the great info you provide, and your beautiful site and Instagram account.
Instagram macht es Menschen wahrlich nicht einfach, Geld über die Plattform zu verdienen. Auf der Profilseite hat man lediglich die Möglichkeit, einen einzigen Link zu integrieren. Dieser führt im Regelfall auf eine Webseite. Im Gegensatz zu Facebook, Twitter und Co. ist der Link in der Bio tatsächlich der einzige Verweis, den man einfügen kann. Links in Beiträgen können nicht angeklickt werden, da Instagram sie als Text darstellt.

Since Instagram started in 2010, influencers have flocked to the platform to increase their audience, traffic, followers and engagement. With 29% of Instagram’s top posts coming from influencers or brand ambassadors, they are dominating the game when it comes to user generated content, and with statistics showing that Instagram has over 700 million monthly users it is now over twice the size of twitter. This isn’t something that should be ignored, especially for brands when they are looking at Instagram affiliate marketing strategies.


Mit diesen elf Strategien kannst du dein Marketing auf Instagram optimieren. Um sicherer im Umgang und den verschieden Möglichkeiten zu werden, ist es zudem ratsam, dass du die App selbst verwendest und dir einen täglichen Überblick über das Geschehen auf der Plattform verschaffst. So behältst du aktuelle Entwicklungen und Trends im Überblick und kannst gegebenenfalls mitziehen.
I don’t have experience with all that many influencer networks so I can’t give a comprehensive review or even list them all. Those that I’ve got decent to good experience with are Popular Pays (my favourite Instagram influencer app and where I got my very first paid gig last summer, with one of my favourite brands no less), Social Fabric (although most of their gigs are US only and they’re vigilant about that), Muse Find and Revfluence. I also signed up for the following networks, but haven’t gotten much (or even any) work through them: Collabor8, Collectively, IZEA, Linqia, Nichify, and TapInfluence. Some of these don’t pay well versus others I just haven’t been contacted much, which could be because I’m based in Canada and a lot of these influencer networks focus on US brands who want US influencers (even though my reach in the US is about the same as fellow US-based mom bloggers).

Auf der sicheren Seite sind Influencer und Unternehmen, wenn der Hinweis auf die Kooperation sofort ersichtlich ist, also am Anfang des Bildtextes platziert wird. Gerne wird das Hashtag mit dem Hinweis ganz unten in den Hashtags versteckt oder gar in der Kommentarspalte. Doch das kann schiefgehen: Das Oberlandesgericht Celle verurteilte einen Drogeriemarkt, weil ein Influencer eine Kooperation mit dem Unternehmen ungenügend gekennzeichnet hatte (Urteil vom 08.03.2017, 13 U 53/17). Er verwendete das Hashtag #ad und setzte es am Ende des Beitrags, an zweiter Stelle innerhalb einer Hashtagwolke. Das sah das Oberlandesgericht als nicht hinreichend an.
For influencer networks, I’ve found the average rates to be quite a bit lower. The average rate for gigs I was accepted for through Popular Pays, for example, was about 30% lower than the rates I was able to get through direct e-mail collaborations. I assume this is because these influencer networks have influencers compete with one another so everyone lowers their rates a bit in hopes of getting the gig. With a brand who e-mails you, on the other hand, you already know they want to work with you so you’re more confident in sticking with your full rates. I would say $10 CPM is a great starting point for e-mail negotiations (if you’ve got the engagement and photo quality to back it up) vs. $5 CPM is about the lowest you should accept / offer for influencer networks.
Der User muss erkennen können, ob es sich bei einem Inhalt um einen redaktionellen bzw. persönlichen Inhalt handelt oder um einen kommerziellen (sprich Werbung), für den der Influencer bezahlt wurde. Im Fernsehen sind Werbeblöcke deutlich durch einen Werbetrenner abgegrenzt. Niemand würde denken, dass die Spots zum Film oder zur TV-Show gehören. Eine derartige Trennung ist auch bei Instagram notwendig.

La forza del contenuto visuale – molto più facile da comprendere rispetto a un testo – rende Instagram un canale sicuramente adatto alla promozione di prodotti, scatenando facilmente fenomeni virali e trend: questa caratteristica si unisce anche al maggiore coinvolgimento che il canale stesso solitamente permette, per via del minor numero di utenti (e quindi di affollamento di contenuti) rispetto a Facebook, tanto per citare l’esempio più eclatante.

Indem du deinen Konkurrenten aus der Branche folgst, bist du in der Lage zu beobachten, wie die Zielgruppe, die du auch ansprechen willst, auf Beiträge von direkten Mitbewerbern reagiert. Dabei bekommst du eine Vorstellung davon, welche Inhalte bei deinem Publikum gut ankommen würden. Zusätzlich ist es möglich, dass du inspirierende Ideenanstöße erhältst. Es ist dennoch wichtig, dass du Inhalte nicht eins zu eins kopierst, sondern deinen individuellen Stellenwert beibehältst. Wirf auch einen Blick auf die Hashtags, die deine Mitstreiter verwenden. Zu guter Letzt verbindest du dich nicht nur mit deinen Konkurrenten, sondern auch mit deinen Kollegen aus der Branche und zeigst dich ihnen gegenüber offen und interessiert.
The approach you choose should also depend on how much you’re willing to spend. A larger budget allows you to partner with larger influencers who can get you as much exposure as possible.
