If you’re interested in Instagram affiliate marketing, you’ve come to the right place!
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms. It doesn’t matter if you’re blogging about food, fashion, beauty, money or business – everyone and their mother (mine included!) is on Instagram.
I’ll be honest. I used to be a big Instagram user but got completely overwhelmed with how much work was involved. I just couldn’t keep up with the demand and eventually stopped posting completely. My big mistake? Not using the right tool to help me plan and schedule my content in advance. I recently discovered Tailwind for Instagram and it’s a game changer. I’m back on Instagram and loving every minute of it.
Since I share affiliate marketing strategies with awesome people like you, naturally my content may contain affiliate links for products I use and love. If you take action (i.e. subscribe, make a purchase) after clicking one of these links (ads), I’ll earn some coffee money ☕️ which I promise to drink while creating more helpful content like this.Affiliate Disclosure
But when it comes to monetizing the platform with affiliate links, you may find yourself confused or frustrated. It’s just not as straight-forward to use with affiliate marketing compared to sites like Twitter and Facebook.
That’s why I put this post together. Here’s how to do Instagram affiliate marketing the right way…
That’s the decision you need to make when joining new fashion affiliate programs.
Door number one leads you down the affiliate aggregator road where you join sites like Skimlinks and get instantly approved to thousands of affiliate programs – skipping the tedious bits of affiliate marketing, like managing all those links and tracking multiple sources of revenue.

Door number two takes you in another direction where you wind up working with product companies directly, usually through their own self-hosted platform or a large network like ShareASale.
Some fashion bloggers start with door number one and once they get more comfortable with affiliate marketing, make their way to door number two.
However the majority stick with the convenience of affiliate aggregators because they’re unaware of the benefits of working with companies directly.
Finding stellar art affiliate programs to join is time-consuming, which is why it’s remained at the bottom of your lengthy content creation to-do list for some time now.
Plus, you’re already part of the popular craft affiliate programs. Why branch out?
I hear you. Careful curation is wonderful and responsible. You want to promote products and companies you can feel good about and build trust with your readers.
Here’s the thing. Not all products will resonate with all readers, no matter how much you may love them. A better affiliate approach would be to experiment with a new product promotion each month or quarter. See how your readers respond and how your commissions are affected and keep tweaking until you find the most profitable product mix for your unique situation.
“I am in the travel industry and am looking for innovative ways to use affiliate links besides hotel chains and travel gear. Any suggestions on products, services, or programs?”
While I responded with a short answer at the time, the question certainly stuck with me. I wanted to develop a list of travel affiliate programs that would excite Christina and other travel bloggers who were sick of promoting the same old, same old.
The end result is this list of 71+ travel affiliate programs I put together for today’s post.
