Two posts in one day? So exciting – I know! But no Wednesday would be complete without my weekly Blogging Basics post, let’s be real.
Recently, one of my friends asked me about a look I had posted on Instagram… and then she asked me how she could shop it. I was surprised to learn that she had no idea what LIKEtoKNOW.it was, nor did she know how to use LIKEtoKNOW.it.
Even if you don’t use Instagram (or are – for some reason or another – against using LIKEtoKNOW.it), you can always shop my Instagram posts through my Shop My Instagrams page.
What I’m Wearing:
Sweater: Free People / Pants: J.Crew / Shoes: similar, similar / Bag: Sole Society
Earrings: J.Crew (similar) / Rings: BaubleBar and BaubleBar / Nail Polish: Essie
So… what is LIKEtoKNOW.it? LIKEtoKNOW.it is a tool you can use to shop bloggers’ Instagram feeds. Any image that is tagged with a liketk.it URL in the caption is shoppable. About 98% of my Instagram posts are currently tagged with these links, making it super easy to shop my looks (often long before they hit the blog!).
To shop these outfits with LIKEtoKNOW.it, all you have to do is download the mobile app from the App Store (also available on Android!). Give the app permission to access your Instagram and photos. Then, each time you screenshot a LIKEtoKNOW.it-enabled post on Instagram, you will then instantly be able to shop the items in that post on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. You can also follow me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app so you’ll never miss one of my posts in the future (even as the Instagram algorithm continues to change and hide my photos from y’all!).
I post exclusive content to the LIKEtoKNOW.it app that you won’t find unless you’ve downloaded the app or click here on my website. If you’re not ready to shop right then and there, you can always wishlist items you love to buy later. But, if you are ready to shop, just click the photo and the item you like and the item’s e-commerce page will instantly pop up. Without ever having to leave the app.
So… to recap:
How to Sign Up for LIKEtoKNOW.it
If you’re an iPhone user and like to shop from your phone, download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app from the App Store and register using your Instagram login. If you’re an Android user, download the app here and register using that same login.
Let’s say you’re not in the mood to download another app or signup for another service. Zero judgement. You can always shop my LIKEtoKNOW.it content here.
How to Use the LIKEtoKNOW.it App to Shop Instagram Posts
Once you have the app downloaded and permissions enabled, go into Instagram and start screenshotting LIKEtoKNOW.it-enabled photos. The app will match your screenshots to photos bloggers have posted using LIKEtoKNOW.it and you’ll then be able to shop everything linked in the photo!
You can also go into the app directly and follow the bloggers you love to create a shoppable feed. Or you can even use the app to search through the special LIKEtoKNOW.it hashtags, like #LTKunder100 (for items under $100) or #LTKhome (for home goods).
Honestly, I use LIKEtoKNOW.it to shop all the time. It makes shopping my favorite bloggers’ looks (which I do too!) easy as pie.
