Happy Monday everyone! It’s the first Monday of the new year and today I’m sharing a ton of tips on how to use the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and shop my posts! I know that it can be pretty confusing if you’ve never use the app before, but don’t worry-I’m here to help!
If you’re on Instagram and follow any fashion or beauty bloggers, then I’m sure that you have seen that iconic heart on the bottom right of their photos. I’m sharing what that means in today’s blog post!
What is LIKEtoKNOW.it?
LIKEtoKNOW.it is an app and an online website that a company called RewardStyle created, where you can shop your favorite bloggers outfits, home decor, fav beauty products and so much more!
I love using this app because I can see where my favorite bloggers clothes are from! I don’t have to worry about searching for the shoes they are wearing, I can just head straight on over to the app to see and purchase them. It’s also such an easy app to use!
*Some of the below links are affiliate links and are at no additional cost to you. I have only included links to products that I have used myself and would recommend to others.*
How Do I Sign Up?
If you want to be able to see your fav influencer’s outfits or if you want all the looks you liked saved, you can sign up for the app! It’s super easy to sign up and FREE to use! There are two ways to do this:
1. Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app by searching it in your phone’s app store (shown below). All you need is an email and password!
2. You can also sign up using their website here. All you need is an email and a password!
How to Shop Using the LIKEtoKNOW.it App
If you are on Instagram, you can take a screenshot and you’ll receive a notification from the app to shop the post! Once you are in the app, it’ll show you all of the looks that you’ve screenshotted or liked. There is also an email signup option where you can have the links and photo sent to your email to shop that way!
You can also follow your favorite influencers to see all of their looks and exclusive content!
In my Instagram photo below, you’ll see the heart in the bottom right corner which lets you know that the photo is in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and you can shop my outfit! I’ve also linked the website version of it and tagged @liketoknow.it in the caption!
Any photo on Instagram that you see with the heart icon lets you know that there are shoppable links for the items in the photo!
How to Shop Without the App
If you don’t want to download the app or if you are on a desktop, you can head over to the Shop My Instagram page under “Shop” and click on any photo. It’ll show you everything I’ve linked and take you directly to the retailers website. You won’t need an account with LTKit shopping this way.
You can click any of the photos and it’ll show you all of the details and info about what I’m wearing (shown right). As you can see, when you click the photo, I’ve linked everything that I’m wearing. If you click any of those items, it’ll take you directly to the link to purchase!
How to Search for Products and Influencers
Once you download the app, you can click the magnifying glass icon on the bottom right. You are able to search for a specific influencer OR search by product.
For example: to find me, you’d tap “influencer search” on the top right, then type in “camillegrey”. You can click my name and see all of my posts I’ve uploaded to the app.
If you wanted to search for “plaid scarf”, you’d click “product search” and search for the plaid scarf.
How to Find Photos You Liked
Here you can see all of the looks that I’ve liked directly on the app, or have screenshotted from Instagram.
To find this, you can click on the heart in circle icon, which is down at the bottom.
It’s a super easy way to see all of the looks you like in one place for further reference or to shop the items.
Using RewardStyle as a Blogger
What is RewardStyle?
RewardStyle is the company that started LTKit. The app itself is completely free to use and anyone can sign up for it. However, in order to be able to post on it, you must be a part of their program.
Another reason why RewardStyle is so great is because you can earn a commission off of items sold! I do completely appreciate it when you guys shop through my links! They also offer a ton of different widgets/apps to show your outfits on your blog. You’ll see that at the end of this post I’ve included a “Shop the Post” section where I’ve linked everything I’m wearing.
You can apply on the RewardStyle Website. Don’t get disheartened if you don’t get accepted the first time you apply. You can apply again! I’m pretty sure I applied three times before I was finally accepted. RewardStyle is looking for the quality of your content, not how many followers you have. I was accepted with less than 1,000 IG followers.
After I was denied the first time, I made sure to do a better job at posting to IG and my blog more consistently. I started tagging brands and sharing fashion tips. I can’t say for sure that is what helped, but I believe posting consistently helped me get in!
After you apply, you’ll get an email saying if you got accepted or not. If you did, you’ll get some more emails which explain how to use the app, their website and helpful tips.
