The Best Way to Shop: How to Use LIKEtoKNOW.it
True story: I have been obsessed with online shopping since elementary school. As a fashion loving 10 year I old, I probably spent a few too many afternoons stalking the "new arrivals" pages on Neiman Marcus Kids and Nordstrom Kids, usually searching for new Lilly Pulitzer dresses or Juicy Couture jumpsuits (anyone else?!). Growing up in Alabama, a place far from the fashion capitals of the world, shopping online was my way of following trends, dreaming of gorgeous fashion, and adding a few pretty things to my closet every now and then! Online shopping has come a long, long way in the past 12 years, and now my absolute favorite way to shop is through LIKEtoKNOW.it!
First, let me tell you that the LIKEtoKNOW.it platform (app, website, and email service) has completely changed the way I shop personally over the past few years, and I'm not really sure how I would shop without it now! Before I even started blogging or became a LIKEtoKNOW.it publisher, this service was a game changer for me. By providing instant access to product details from the images I am inspired by all over the internet, LIKEtoKNOW.it has been key to helping me find and purchase some of the most loved items in my closet!
It is amazing how much LIKEtoKNOW.it has grown and changed over the past few years. What started as an email service to deliver product details from Instagram photos straight to your inbox is now a website as well as an app! Today I want to dive in deep, share all the ways LIKEtoKNOW.it has helped me find and purchase products I love, and show you all the ways it can help you do the same!I have so many exciting details to share in today's post, so let's get started!
WHAT IS LIKEtoKNOW.it?
Let's start with the basics! LIKEtoKNOW.it is an amazingly helpful and efficient service that allows you to shop the pretty products you see on your Instagram feed instantly!
Influencers, Bloggers, Youtubers, and anyone else who is registered as a publisher on the LIKEtoKNOW.it platform is able to link all the products you see on Instagram to this one platform, so you can get product details and shop immediately!
LIKEtoKNOW.it is a 3 in 1 platform. It is an email service, a website, and an app. All provide the same service: making influencers' photos shoppable, giving you easy access to product details quickly, and answering the infamous question, "Where did you get that?"
HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR LIKEtoKNOW.it?
You will now 1) receive shoppable emails with product details from your favorite instagrammers' photos*, 2) you can view these shoppable photos and product details on the LIKEtoKNOW.it website, and 3) you can download and shop these same photos directly from the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (my favorite!). These three different ways to access the LIKEtoKNOW.it platform make it as easy as possible for you to shop anywhere, anytime!
*If you prefer, you can turn off the email function of the LIKEtoKNOW.it service and solely shop from the app or website!
HOW DO I USE THE LIKEtoKNOW.it APP?
This past spring, LIKEtokNOW.it launched its most amazing and advanced tool- an app! The LIKEtoKNOW.it app completely streamlined all publishers' content for consumers and shoppers.
1. DOWNLOAD the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (App Store or Google Play)
2. SCREENSHOT or "Like" your favorite influencer images
on social media and the mobile web.
3. OPEN the app and SHOP the products featured in the photos you like.
4. BROWSE thousands of influencer images and
discover new influencers to FOLLOW in the app
Below is a graphic and video that explains it all visually.
1. Is LIKEtoKNOW.it limited to only fashion?
No! That is one of my favorite things about it. You can shop for nearly anything on LIKEtoKNOW.it. From home furnishings, to kitchen supplies, to bathroom organization, to makeup and beauty products. However, I would say the majority of the content on LIKEtoKNOW.it is fashion related though. I love getting outfit inspo and shopping from so many chic ladies' photos from around the world through this one app!
2. How do you personally use the LIKEtoKNOW.it app?
I use the app every single day. Whenever I come across an image on Instagram from any of the influencers' I follow and something catches my eye (stunning dress, cute shoes, pretty bag, etc.), I immediately screenshot the image. I then click over to the LTK app and get details on the product and am able to shop right away.
3. Do you link all of the instagram photos you post with LIKEtoKNOW.it?
Yes, I link 99% of the photos I post with LIKEtoKNOW.it. If the instagram photo I post has any sort of product in it, I will always link the products with LIKEtoKNOW.it, so you can get product details straight to your inbox, on the web, or in the app. I think LIKEtoKNOW.it is such a fun and interactive way to share the products I love with you!
4. How do I know if a photo is linked with LIKEtoKNOW.it?
If the photo has a LIKEtoKNOW.it link in the caption (http://liketk.it followed by a few letters/numbers) or if you see the LIKEtoKNOW.it heart icon in the bottom right hand corner of the photo, then you will know the photo is linked with LIKEtoKNOW.it. Personally, I usually do not use the heart icons on my photos, but you will always see the LIKEtoKNOW.it link in my instagram caption.
5. Do I have to sign up for LIKEtoKNOW.it to be able to shop your instagrams?
No. While I would highly recommend using LIKEtoKNOW.it (especially the app!) to shop my photos, you can also shop all the products I feature in my instagrams everyday right here! Simply go to LCBSTYLE.COM/INSTAGRAM, click a photo, and all the products featured are linked for you to shop.
Have I left something out? Let me know if there is anything I missed or if you still have questions about using LIKEtoKNOW.it! It has been such a helpful tool for me as a fashion enthusiast and avid online shopper. As always, thank you for reading and following along!
