Using LIKEtoKNOW.it To Shop My Looks
Today, I'm going to try to clear up a few things for you all! I get sooo many questions about how to shop my looks through LIKEtoKNOW.it that I (finally) decided to do a blog post on it. I definitely want to make it easy for you all to shop my looks! Giving you the proper education on how to do it is my job, so let's do it!
I'm actually going to show you a few ways to shop my looks and they are not hard at all. In fact, I think the app confuses a lot of people, but did you know you don't even need to download the app at all? Today were covering any and all quesitons and I'm being 100% honest and real with you guys as always, so #leggo! Sometimes a little instruction is all it takes, right!? :) Don't worry...I got you!
FYI...We're going to do this Q&A style :)
QUESTION 1: HOW DO I SHOP YOUR LOOKS FROM INSTAGRAM?
- (Recommended way) Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (availalalbe for Android and Apple users) on your mobile device. Once you have the app downloaded, you can go back to Instagram and either like my picture on my Instagram OR screenshot my picture on Instagram for it to be sent DIRECTLY to the LIKEtoKNOW.it app! Click on that same image in the app that you liked on Instagram to see all the products I've linked in that picture and click on picture to shop them!
- (Shop easily WITHOUT using the app!) If LIKEtoKNOW.it just confuses you (hey, it's okay), you can actually shop my looks WITHOUT even downloading the app. Visit the link in my profile on Instagram and head to "Shop My Instagram Feed". Click on the picture to shop items directly by clicking each item that is linked. Easy, right?
QUESTION 2: HOW DO I SHOP YOUR LOOKS FROM FACEBOOK?
Usually I will drop a link for you to click on if I post to my Facebook page, so if I do that...it's probably the easiest to just click on that link directly. Or....
You can also screenshot the picture on Facebook! This will send my image over to the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (if you have it downloaded), so you can shop directly from the app. See above question for how to download the app from your mobile device!
QUESTION 3: HOW DO I SHOP YOUR LOOKS FROM THE BLOG?
- To shop my looks that I link through LIKEtoKNOW.it, you can click on the three little lines in the upper left corner of my blog, go to SHOP, then go to SHOP MY INSTAGRAM. All of my pictures that I've posted to Instagram (and linked through LIKEtoKNOw.it) will show up there. Click on the picture to shop! Super easy! (You DO NOT need the app to shop it this way!)
- I also throw out links in usually every single blog post as well as picture images of the items linked that are relevant to each blog post. So, if you click on any given blog postu, usually you will find shoppable items linked (they show up as pink text and underlined OR you will find little widges or pictures of the item that is shoppable)
QUESTION 4: DO I NEED THE LIKETOKNOW.IT APP TO SHOP YOUR LOOKS?
- To reiterate: No! Some people do not want to download the app, because it takes up space on their phone or they simply do not want 5.467,921 apps on their phone, ha! Hey, I get it! To shop it two ways WITHOUT the app: Go to my blog, click on the three lines in very upper left-hand corner, then SHOP, and SHOP MY INSTAGRAM or go to this link directly (You can bookmark that to save it and never have to remember anything more...your welcome!)
- Again...if you're looking from Instagram, click on the link in my Instagram profile and then Shop My Instagram and it will take you straight there! Easy, right?!
QUESTION 5: HOW DO I GET ALL YOUR LOOKS IN ONCE PLACE IN CASE I MISSED EACH INSTAGRAM POST?
- So say, you can't keep up with my Instagram feed, but you still want to shop ALL my looks from like the past few weeks (or whatever.) Well, you'll need to download the app, but heres why it's great! If you "follow me" on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (and you all should), you can shop my looks directly from the app, without even having to like or screenshot the picture! Whhhhhaaat! Game Changer! This is a new feature they just rolled out with, so it's still new to some people. Here's how to follow me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app (once you've downloaded it) --> In the lower right corner, you'll see a search bar, click that button and type in heyjodeblog and click the "Follow" button. If you click on my name, this is where you will find all my looks that I've linked.
- Tip: Play around with the four buttons at the bottom, because you can see all your favorite influencers pics in one screen, discover looks tailored to your needs + more!
- Once again, you can shop them on the blog under the SHOP tab and SHOP MY INSTAGRAM! ....Are you seeing a pattern here, cuz you should be!
QUESTION 6: WHERE CAN I FOLLOW ALL MY FAVORITE BLOGGERS' LOOKS?
- On the LIKEtoKNOW.it app! See Question #5 for how to follow me, and this is also how you will follow others! It's great because you can see all your favorite bloggers pics and get to shop their looks all ine ONE PLACE. Talk about convenient, huh!?
QUESTION 7: DO YOU MAKE MONEY IF I BUY SOMETHING YOU RECOMMENDED?
- Yes. You can read my disclaimer here (scroll all the way to the bottom) which talks about affiliate links, and feel free to contact me with any questions. I spend a lot of time (as you may be able to tell) searching for and linking items for you guys. It's hard work, trust me! What I make from these commissions is how I'm able to support my blog and keep my website running. It makes me sad when you find out where something is from and then go to that retailer to buy it, I'll be honest with you :( It's pretty much not paying credit where credit is due. And that is no bueno! I told ya, we were getting real honest today, guys! ALSO, if you're curious about how much I really make off of an item you buy, it is certainly probably not as much as you may think. It averages about 10% commission, depending on the retailer.
- Bottom line: Please, please use my links if you can. Promise I'm not begging, but hear me out...It not only helps me support my blog so I can keep doing this for you guys, but I am also able to track the sales to see what you guys are liking and not liking from me. It helps me to better understand you all so I can provide the best content for you. I want to be able to cater to your needs, so giving me feedback by using my links helps me with this!
QUESTION 8: IF I'M CONFUSED, CAN I MESSAGE OR EMAIL YOU FOR THE LINK?
- Yes, of course!! I love it when y'all message me! I have several people who do this, and it is ALWAYS OKAY to DM or email me for the exact link! I would rather you do this than go find it on your own (see above question.) Hopefully, this blog post will clear up some questions and eliminate messages, so you guys can understand how to shop my looks, but don't EVER be afraid to reach out to me! I'm not scary, I promise!
- Please also feel free to reach out about sizing, fit, price, or ANYTHING else you'd like to ask or tell me. I also like it when y'all send me pictures of pieces you're wearing that I recommended. That gets me like.....super excited ;)
QUESTION 9: DO YOU ALWAYS LINK EXACT PIECES?
- I try really, really hard to link the exact pieces for you guys, but sometimes it's just not possible because the item has already sold out or I bought it on sale and it's no longer available online.
- If I am unable to link exact pieces, I will link similar items and I will tell you they are similar items. Just like this post, I want to be honest with y'all and never lose your trust. I usually try to link very affordable pieces as that is what HEY JODE is all about, so it's something you can expect me to do!
- Not all retailers are affiliated with LIKEtoKNOW.it, so therefore I cannot link items if the retailer is not a part of it. In this case, I would instruct you how you can find it on your own without my link, since I am unable to find it!
QUESTION 10: IS EVERY PICTURE YOU POST TO INSTAGRAM SHOPPABLE?
- No. Not all are shoppable and linked through the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, either because it is a lifestyle post with nothing to link OR I couldnt find the exact item for you guys (and I didn't feel like linking anything, lol.) You can usually look for the black or white LIKEtoKNOW.it symbol in the bottom right corner of the pic, and this will let you know that this post is shoppable :)
I hope this post cleared up some questions for you! I know the app may seem confusing, but it is really simple to use and you'll get the most use out of it if you download it, so to highlight some of the areas we talked about this post:
- Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app to shop my looks plus all your other favorite bloggers looks!
- Follow me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, along with all your other favorites!
- If you aboslutely do not want to download the app (it's okay), you can shop by link in IG profile and "Shop My Instagram" OR by clicking on the three bars in upper left hand corner of my blog, then SHOP and SHOP MY INSTAGRAM. They will both take you to the same place. Bookmark this page for future reference!
- Please, please use my links if you'd like to support HEY JODE! Ask me if you have any questions at all regarding affiliate links.
- NOT ALL posts that I post to Instagram are linked via LIKEtoKNOW.it. You should know if it's a shoppable post by the LIKEtoKNOW.it symbol in the bottom right hand corner of the pictures. This will clue you that I have items linked for you to shop!
I will probably not get a post out next week due to Christmas! So...I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and get to celebrate with all your family and friends! This is such a special time of year, and I'm going to take some time to relax with my family and just enjoy my time with them.
I have some exciting things planned for 2018. I'm thinking about doing a series for 2018, so stay tuned for that! Any ideas welcome, so comment below! As always, thank you for stopping by and supporting HEY JODE. It means more than you know.
