Have you ever wondered what Like To Know It is? Are you confused about how to use it or how to sign up as a blogger? If you’re seeking answers to these questions, you’re not alone! Many people are curious about the ins and outs of Like To Know It. Even my friends and family often ask me about the little heart icon in the corner of my pictures or the mysterious http://liketk.it/2sJGa URL in my Instagram posts. It’s time to set the record straight and provide a comprehensive breakdown of Like To Know It, both from a user perspective and as a blogger. So, let’s dive in!
What Is Like To Know It and How Does It Work?
You might have noticed the small white heart icon in the bottom corner of some Instagram pictures, along with the @liketoknowit tag, Like To Know It URL, and #LTK hashtags. These indicators signify that the photo has been enabled through Like To Know It. If you find yourself admiring someone’s outfit in such a photo, you can use LTKit to easily discover where each item is from.
But what exactly is Like To Know It? Essentially, it’s a social-based shopping service that allows users to instantly access and purchase the clothing and products worn by their favorite influencers. The technology behind Like To Know It is powered by RewardStyle, and it has revolutionized the shopping experience for both bloggers and consumers.
Previously, Like To Know It was only available on the web, but now the Like To Know It app offers the most convenient way to shop. Here’s how it works: download the app from the App Store and sign up using your email and password.
Once you have the app, head over to Instagram. If you spot the @liketoknowit tag in the photo caption, you’re in luck! Take a screenshot of the picture and return to the app. The image will instantly appear in the app, displaying all the items tagged with little images. By clicking on any of the items, you will be directed to the corresponding store’s URL page.
Another incredibly easy way to use Like To Know It is by opening the app and searching for your favorite bloggers. Simply type in their username (e.g., “theblondeinpink”) in the search bar, and you’ll be taken to their profile with all their LTKit-enabled images conveniently listed in one place. No need to take screenshots anymore! Just click on any photo to see the details and where each item can be purchased. You can also access all of my LTK images in one place by visiting liketoknowit.com/theblondeinpink on the web.
As a passionate user of LTKit, I rely on it regularly to find out where my favorite bloggers sourced their clothing. It’s my favorite way to shop because it’s incredibly easy and instantaneous. When I see a pair of shoes I like, I no longer have to search high and low across the internet to find them. With just a click of a button, I can make them mine.
Lastly, it’s worth mentioning that you can always access information about my outfits without signing up for Like To Know It. By clicking on the “Shop My Instagram” tab on my blog, you can view all my pictures and find out where each item I’m wearing can be purchased.
How Can I Sign Up For Like To Know It As A Blogger?
As mentioned earlier, RewardStyle is the company behind LTKit. Using Like To Know It as a consumer is free and available to anyone, but becoming an LTKit-enabled blogger requires an application process. By joining as a blogger, you have the opportunity to earn commission when someone purchases items you’ve linked in your pictures.
RewardStyle needs to evaluate several factors before approving your application and allowing you to start earning money. They want to see if your Instagram and blog content is consistent and of high quality. Are you showcasing outfits with currently available clothing? On your blog, are you sharing URLs for the exact items you wear, or are you promoting older garments as substitutes? The same applies to your Instagram posts. RewardStyle looks for regular posts that reflect current trends.
Before applying, make sure you have built up a substantial collection of blog and Instagram posts. Establish a track record of sharing high-quality content, following a posting schedule, and styling outfits that others can easily purchase. Remember, it’s not solely about the number of followers you have. Focus on the quality of your content. If you believe you’ve achieved these milestones within a month, go ahead and apply!
You can submit your application on the RewardStyle website. The process is straightforward and only requires a bit of information about your blog, Instagram account, and demographics. Be aware that this part can be frustrating and disheartening, as there is no set timeline or status update regarding your application. You’ll eventually receive an email informing you whether you’ve been accepted or not. If accepted, you’ll receive valuable educational resources on how to “link” your products and make the most of the LTKit platform. If not accepted, don’t get discouraged. Keep focusing on improving the quality of your content, and consider reapplying in a couple of months.
