Over the weekend, I went out for a friends birthday and decided to wear the cutest off the shoulder top, seen here, and so many of my friends complimented me about it and asked me where they could get it. I told them they could shop directly from SomethingDashing.com or through LikeToKnow.It and the new app. Many of my friends were surprised and asked me how they could shop my blog and further asked me to walk them through how and what LikeToKnow.It is. As much as it may be familiar to me and it make make sense to me, it clearly doesn’t come easy to everyone. So today, I am focusing on educating my closest family/friends and my readers. Let’s get started!
1. I use Liketoknow.It on most on my Instagram photos (like this one) to create shoppable links. Until recently, you had to sign up for Liketoknow.it in order to receive these details. You can still sign up for emails here and you will receive an email to your inbox within 5-10 minutes. Sometimes emails don’t come through or they make it to the spam box.
2. Last week, Liketoknow.it launched their app making it easier to shop your favorite bloggers photos. Go to the App Store and search for “Liketoknow.it” and download the app. Once you’re there, you can sign in with your email or through Instagram, and then you can shop details directly from the app. With the new app, you can either screenshot or like a Liketoknow.it enabled image on Instagram or Snapchat.
3. How do you know if an image is shoppable with Liketokow.it? The first sign to look if an image is Liketoknow.it enabled is to look for @liketoknow.it within the caption of the post. Sometimes you may even find hashtag #liketoknow in the caption. With the most recent launch of the app, you may now look for a little heart in the bottom right hand corner of an image, either in black or white. With this new logo, you can identify shoppoable photos (with a like or a screenshot) on Instagram or Snapchat. For my readers, I haven’t quite gotten on the Snapchat bandwagon as much as I use Instagram and Instagram stories. If you’re looking for me, you can always find me there.
5. Lastly, for my family and friends who have asked how you can shop my blog, I will do a better job to educate through Instagram stories. You can always go to somethingdashing.com and hit the shop page to shop my recent favorites, liketoknow.it enabled images and currently resort wear. As always, any blog post will have enabled links that will allow you to shop directly from the blog post. Press on the link, it will open a new window allowing you to remain on my page but also allowing you to shop the product you pressed on.
