It hardly matters whether you’re a novice or a marketer with relevant experience there have been several challenges that you might endure on your journey of becoming a successful Instagram marketer.
But as we all know in times of need there are least available resources that have the actual solution to your problems. Most blogs you come across the internet features strategies and tips that you need to implement to fortify your marketing on Instagram. But how many of those showcase the actual process and the aftermath?
So here I’m providing you with all the tit-bits regarding my successful journey of Affiliate marketing using Instagram.
Affiliate Marketing On Instagram:
The first question that seemingly comes in your mind is, whether Instagram a place to conduct affiliate marketing?
Instagram sporting over 700 million users worldwide, is a social platform with massive scope for businesses. Besides around 5 million businesses have been actively leveraging it to drive business awareness, target potential customers and increase product sales.
However, with this, another query that comes to your mind is that how to proceed with your affiliate marketing efforts on Instagram?
Here I will be providing you the method that I have implemented and gained satisfactory results in the long run.
Firstly, I have used OGads (visit: http://ogads.com/ – register and get yourself an account which needs to be approved *it requires at least 24 HRS to get the account approved)
You may ask why OGads?
Well, OGads is an amazing mobile/desktop CPA networking platform dedicatedly designed for affiliates presenting remarkable offers. Besides, it was seemingly more compatible to my plan of action, thereby I chose it.
So what are you actually going to promote via affiliate?
In general, affiliate marketing refers to promoting various offers (related to your product/service or any other form of offerings) hosted on your own site or someone else’s site with which you have affiliate tie-ups.
Thus, it is obvious that you need to showcase a website with domain and hosting. On the contrary, OGads does let you access it’s pre-hosted websites for affiliate purpose in case you want to try them- one of the many reasons to proceed with OGads.
How Instagram plays the pivotal role in your money making process?
Since the post is regarding monetizing your marketing efforts through Instagram it’s obvious that you want to know how that can be achieved.
But, on the primary basis how many accounts are required? What should be the account status and how to link bio etc.?
First and foremost arranging of PVA Instagram accounts are need to made (remember aged accounts are most preferable ones, as it minimizes the chances you being spammed, however, other precautions also need to be taken). The number of accounts depends on your choice as in I have used 10 accounts for my venture.
Are you worried about the ‘Spamming’ factor? Well, that is something worth worrying about, but there is a solution to that problem too. Usage of Private proxies might come in really handy for this purpose (I strongly recommend using 2 accounts per proxy for uninterrupted workflow).
But one thing still makes you scratch your head- how to automate your Instagram activities at a time when most automation tools have already been disbanded?
Gramdominator is the easiest and affordable solution to your problem. For instance, if your whole and sole desire is to lead your followers to your products landing page, you need to first get followers.
In my case since I chose 10 accounts and wish to gain 10,000 followers in a minimal period of time- I would be following 1000 each day from each. But is it possible manually? But will consume a lot of time, might even eat up all your day. Thus automation is always beneficial and that is exactly what I did.
Besides, you need to have exposure to showcase your offers and drive traffic to your landing pages isn’t it? By using Gramdominator’s GrowFollower option you can easily follow people on a bulk using Instagram account.
But what about your niche? What if you wish to follow users based on a particular keyword/hashtag? Gramdominator clearly resolves this issue allowing you to follow in accordance to your desired specification.
Yet again you might think that on using automation how will you use proxies or even if the automation works would the following in a bulk be a safe process?
In that case, from my personal experience, I suggest that Gramdominator is completely safe and sound in terms of following as it will let you set the delay time between each follow process. For my venture, I have been setting the delay time as 40-60 sec (you may even choose a safer delay according to your usage).
Besides Gramdominator also allows the usage of private proxies and multiple accounts handling at the same time to make the process much faster and hassle free.
Now the question is how to drive traffic to your landing page using OGads? It can be done by following two processes:
- Using the link in bio section (will generally be shortened links as in Bitly or goo.gl link for better performance).
- Posting pictures with an offer (a time taking but immensely effective process since Instagram is a photo sharing platform).
If you wish to go with the latter there are certain facilities you can leverage on using Gramdominator like the- Insta Poster Module (this module helped me schedule multiple image posts for the various accounts I handled).
You might also think do you need to lead people to different landing pages every time? Not necessarily, once can lead create a single offer or landing page and use it for different niches (but relevant).
Last but not the least will it actually work?
Well, it worked for me and you can check out the stats now.
So you can see that my goal was to make money via Instagram and earn as much as I can. Even though I got a slow start but eventually the number clicks, conversion rate, and the payments increased. Thereby it was possible due to my complete dedicated efforts and usage of this amazing marketing tool.
Even though I have provided you all the things I did, yet your success with affiliate marketing on Instagram depends mostly on how you’ve been looking forward to marketing. The amount of dedication and effort you pour in comes back as your reward it’s just that all the tips and tricks do make the process easier. If I did it you can do it too- now go affiliate on Instagram.
