Affiliate Marketing with Nano-Influencers on Instagram



Since November 2016, it has been possible to include links in your stories on Instagram. The big problem: It was only possible with a specific number of followers. That is why small influencers did not have the opportunity to present an Affiliate-Link through their story. But that has now changed. For about a month a new “Instagram Link Button” has been available, which can be used by every Instagram user.

With this change, not only the accessibility has changed, but also the design. What was recently a “Swipe-up” is now a button. But what do the influencers say about this change? We asked the metapic community.



Our survey on the Link Button from Instagram

The result of the survey was that the Link Button had already been used successfully by almost 70 % of the metapic community after just a few days.

Additionally, our metapic influencers have very much recognised the importance of Affiliate Marketing of the Link Button over the previous “Swipe-up”.



The added value of the Link Button on Instagram for Affiliate Marketing


The new link function has adapted to user behaviour, which at the same time reduces the user journey and benefits Affiliate Marketing. The potential customers can now get directly from the story to the online shop with just one click.

Furthermore, Nano-Influencers also can include an Affiliate-Link in their Instagram story. That benefits not only the influencers but also the companies. Now they can focus on small influencers who can communicate the products or brands to the followers with more trust and empathy.
