Why to download the Liketoknow.it app before cyber week and use it to shop smarter.
I have certainly shared about Liketoknow.it on the blog before but I thought it was time to repeat the thread. As we head into the cyber week sales and Christmas gift shopping ideas it’s a busy time for bloggers sharing all sorts of things they have been busy trying throughout the year, myself included.
If you are following me on Instagram, you might have seen me include info in my captions from time to time about how you can easily shop my outfits. Today I thought I would share more on how to do this by sharing with you to the LiketoKnow.it app. Think of it as an Instagram, but for shopping without the algorithm.
If you follow many bloggers, you might have noticed them share links to @liketoknow.it and wondered what it is. Essentially it’s a shopping app that was created to give people the opportunity to shop the exact same products that their favourite content creators are wearing. So, rather than having to search the internet to find each item, you can shop it using the link that the content creator has provided.
HOW IT HELPS ME HELP YOU
Personally, I get a lot of DM’s and comments with questions on where to find certain pieces and I often don’t have time to get back to people as quickly as I’d like. Making sure I share the outfits on LiketoKnow.it is the quickest and easiest way for you to shop my looks at any time. Also, if that exact item is sold out or low in stock, I try to find something similar to recommend. I actually spend a lot of my time hunting town alternatives that I feel happy recommending. Often too, I try to find similar items at different price points, since our budgets are all different.
HOW TO USE THE LIKETOKNOW.IT APP
Go to the app store, download the free LiketoKnow.it app then search inspiringwit and you will find every post from my Instagram and more, with all details directly linked. If you click on the item, it will take you straight to the website to shop it.
Alternatively, when you are on my blog, inspiringwit.com in your browser and click the Shop my Instagram page.
Finally, when an image has been enabled on the LiketoKnow.it app, you can screenshot it and get the details via the app or in an email. Regardless of whether that image is on Instagram, Pinterest, or even Google images. How clever is that!?
WHY I USE IT AND WHAT I GET OUT OF IT
The benefit for me as the content creator or blogger is to make the products easily available to my community while earning a small commission through affiliate links.
Without incurring any cost to the consumer, when you buy through one of the links I’ve created, the website you shop from thanks me with a small commission from the sale. So, I repeat, it costs you nothing, but it might be giving me a small commission for doing so.
I make sure I trust the websites and brands I link to, doing my research first. LiketoKnow.it has thousands of partnerships with retailers like David Jones, The Iconic, Revolve, Everlane, etc. All in all, since I don’t make that much from the commissions, I see it as an extra bit of income which keeps me able to continue to create content like these outfit posts.
What a lot of people don’t realise is that if you searched ‘Mango’ on Google and clicked on the first page (the advert) and bought something, Google would make a commission. So feel free to divert that to me! hehe, thank you.
LEARN MORE AND THANK YOU!
Want to learn more about the app and how to use it? I’ve shared screen grabs and a step by step guide on how it all works on the blog before. Click over to this post to check that out.
I hope this is useful if you have been wondering what I am on about when I mention the links.
Before you go adding to your cart this sale season, I would love it if you clicked via one of my links to help me out with that bonus commission. It won’t cost you anything but even $10 here and there can add up to help me keep being able to create posts and keep searching out the best products and brands so you don’t have to waste your time.
I hugely appreciate everyone who comes to my blog, shares my posts on Instagram, and gets in touch. All of that makes me feel a little less alone when working from home! I’ve been so touched by our Inspiring Wit community over the years (it’s been ten!!) and am forever grateful to all of you.
By the way, I just realised when finding links to the pieces I am wearing in this outfit all but the bag is on sale with 30% off or more. You are welcome friends! Jump on it!
