Best Affiliate Marketing Programs For Influencers

Swipe, posters, and links in bio. We have all seen affiliate marketing in action.

A commission-based model is one of the most direct and accessible ways influencers can start making money: sharing a traceable link to a product or service, and generating a percentage of sales.

Sydney Bradley and I highlighted the best affiliate marketing networks that influencers used in 2021.

Here’s a look at just a few of the software cut down thanks to high commission rates, access to top brands, and powerful interfaces and tools:

  • the Amazon Influencer It stands out for allowing creators to partner with the world’s largest retailer and access a wide range of tools.

  • LTK (formerly and RewStyle) Influencers are given a custom URL and an in-app page called “LTK Shop”, where they can put together a shopping list with affiliate affiliate links for their followers.

  • Magic Linux Provides the ability to conduct affiliate marketing through text messages.

Here is the complete list of the best programs that cater to influencers.

Inside TikTok: How ByteDance’s Culture Principles Are Used to Reward and Reprimand

Every tech startup has its own culture, and we took an inside look at TikTok’s. Employees in the video app must adhere to a set of six workplace principles – dubbed “ByteStyles” – written by parent company ByteDance.

Company rules are often fairly general, such as “be firm and brave” and “be open and humble.”

Internally, employees use ByteStyles as a way to recall what the company considers to be good or bad performance during employee evaluations, my colleague Dan Whateley wrote.

While sticking to ByteStyles can lead to gifts or prizes, not following cultural principles can lead to discipline.

Its open nature can be frustrating when applied to specific work situations, according to four current and former TikTok employees. Sometimes ByteStyles are used as blanket warnings to employees about behavior that the company did not like.

“This is not byte patterns!” She’s like too general, but she’s been dumped around [when] “Anyone who does things the other person doesn’t like,” a current TikTok employee told Insider.

Read Instagram DM templates an influencer uses to make brand deals

Personal finance influencer Tori Dunlap has 1.7 million followers on TikTok and earns thousands of dollars promoting companies like Credit Karma and Four Seasons.

Her advice to score those deals with brands? Slither into DMs. I got my first paid deal last year after reaching out to Personal Capital, a personal wealth management company, via Instagram DM.

I spoke with Dunlap who shared templates for other influencers to use and said I’m not afraid of rejection.

“Just because they said no now doesn’t mean this won’t last forever,” Dunlap, 26, told Insider. “I have 2 million followers and I still get a lot of ‘no’.”

Check out the exact DM templates Dunlap uses to score paid deals, here.
