How To Use Like To Know It

If you’re on Instagram much, chances are you’ve seen bloggers using Like To Know It. More commonly seen as #liketkit! It’s been around for a few years now but I still occasionally get questions about it so I wanted to create a go-to post for anyone wondering what it’s all about! 

So first of all, Like To Know It is a lifesaver. It’s the easiest way to shop an outfit you see & love on Instagram! I can’t tell you how many times I have been scrolling through my feed, stumble upon an outfit I fall in love with, go to the Like To Know It link & buy it! That can all seriously happen in less than 5 minutes. Essentially, anytime you ‘like’ an Instagram photo that is linked to Like To Know It, you get an email to your inbox with easy, clickable links to each part of the outfit!

So here is how you get started:

1. Go to this link. Click on the Sign Up box! It will take less than 2 minutes and no, it doesn’t cost anything! They just ask for super basic information. There is a short video tutorial on this page that helps too!

2. You can set the email preferences to whatever you want! You can get them ASAP, daily, weekly or never. 
More on this below!

3. On Instagram, ‘like’ any of my photos that have the #liketkit label. This is basically all of my photos! ha!

4. Within a few minutes {usually less than 5!} you will get an email with direct links to all of the items in my outfit from that post!

As for the frequency of emails- you can set it to whatever works best for you! It can be set to generate an email ASAP each time you ‘like’ a Like To Know It photo OR you can set it to email you daily with all of the photos you’ve ‘liked’ OR  you can set it to a weekly occurrence too! There is also an option to never receive emails if you don’t want. I personally have mine set to the weekly option. Even though I only get that email weekly, there are other ways to shop Instagram posts using Like To Know It! 

Options for shopping Like To Know It Instagram posts without receiving an email:

>>> In every photo that is Like To Know It enabled, there will be a direct link included. However, Instagram doesn’t allow those links to be clickable so you will have to manually type it in. They are always super short and easy to do though! Just be aware that it IS case sensitive

>>> Another way I frequently shop my favorite Instagram posts is going to the actual LikeToKnow.It website! You can use the menu on the top right hand side to select ‘My Likes’ to see ALL shoppable images from your favorite bloggers! Any photo you’ve liked will be there with all of the products shown under the photo. See the example of one of my Instagram posts below! It’s a quick and easy way to scroll through & shop all the photos and outfits you loved in a day. I usually just open all the items I love in new tabs and go through and check them out! It can be SO tempting because there are always lots of pretty things to add to my growing shopping cart wishlist. 

Overall Like To Know It is a super convenient service that allows people to easily shop the things they see and love on Instagram! I remember before this was even an option I felt so bad every time someone would comment on one of my Instagram outfit posts & ask me where something was from. Of course they would comment & ask when I wasn’t on Instagram and in the middle of my day teaching 7th graders! It might have been hours before I was able to get back on & finally reply to them. By that time, lots of people {including myself!} would have just given up on it and moved on to something else. I always felt guilty that I couldn’t help a girl out much faster. In addition to that, it wasn’t always very helpful when I would say the item was from Nordstrom. There are literally thousands of pages {over 25k! WOW!} of women’s clothing so it would take forever to sort through them to find what they are looking for! And who has time for that? So when Like To Know It entered the picture, it was such a relief! I could link everything directly to the picture when I was posting it so no one had to wait around for me anymore or try and track it down themselves! Whew! I just love how easy it is for everyone!

So I would love to hear from you! Do you already use Like To Know It? Do you love it? Hate it? Are you hesitant to sign up? Why? I would love to help you out if you have any questions! 

And FYI… If despite all of this Like To Know It still isn’t your thing, you can always shop all of my Instagram posts here on my blog without creating an account. Just click the Shop my Instagram tab at the top of my site and everything will be there for you! But if you are wanting access to shoppable links even faster & having the convenience of shopping from your inbox, then be sure to utilize Like To Know It to save lots of time! {& jump on any sales I post right away before they are gone!

Have a fab Friday & a great weekend loves! xo
