LIKEtoKNOW.it Decoded

Have you ever been scrolling through Instagram and come across a photo where you absolutely love something the person is wearing or featuring? Whether it be a new pair of lace up flats, a gorgeous necklace or a fun pillow you just know would look good in your home. But then scroll down to the caption only to find no information on where you can purchase said shoes or pillow!

This has happened to me numerous times. I find something I just have to have, only to see no mention of where I can buy the product. Another scenario could be that the blogger states the item is "from H&M" or "from LOFT." So you then spend 30 minutes scouring those sites, only to come up short of finding what you were looking for. So, you give up. Till now…

Introducing LIKEtoKNOW.it.

You may have noticed in a lot of my recent Instagram photos I've been tagging @LIKETOKNOW.IT // sharing a www. link somewhere in the caption // or adding the #liketkit hashtag. You may have seen all three, or a combination.

So what is this you may ask? Some of you may be quite familiar with LIKEtoKNOW.it. But some of you may not. So today's post is all about decoding this shopping feature.

LIKEtoKNOW.it is a feature of an affiliate network I work with. Basically it is an app where I can link items I'm wearing or featuring in an Instagram photo, and all the product links will be sent straight to your inbox via one fancy email. The email will include the original Instagram photo + product photos and links. All you have to do is click on the item in the email and you're directed straight to the exact (or sometimes similar) product to shop. How cool is that?!

So let's break it down even easier shall we. Here is how it works for you:

  1. Signup for LIKEtoKNOW.it so you're eligible to receive emails and link up your Insta.
  2. Scroll through your Instagram photos like usual.
  3. If a photo is shopable, you'll see some sort of LIKEtoKNOW.it variation tagged. Either the Instagram account, a URL link and/or the #liketkit. Any of those are indicators the photo is shopable. 
  4. LIKE the Instagram photo.
  5. Once you "heart" the photo, an email with product links is sent straight to your email inbox. 
  6. Magic, right?!

Basically all you have to do is signup once, and just go about your daily Instagram use. If you see a photo featuring an item you love and the person has linked via LIKEtoKNOW.it, then you'll receive product info in a matter of minutes! Here's what your email will look like…

It's so easy, and the days of scouring the internet to find products have now turned into "LIKE to know it." Happy shopping loves!

Don't give up Morgan!! It took me a year and a half too! Based on what they told me I should fix, I started doing more outfit posts each week and a lot more shopable content on Instagram. Those were the issues I needed to fix. Once I did, within a month or two I was accepted!! Make sure you reach out to whomever emailed you and inquire about what you can be doing to work towards getting accepted!! Hope that helps :))
