Hey babes, I want to talk to you today about the Like to Know it app, and also share my photos with you from our awesome Kendra Scott event!
To give you a little background…
Being accepted into this program was a HUGE goal for me in my blogging journey. After launching my blog last July, but only REALLY putting my heart and soul into it since January 2017, I was not expecting to be accepted into this program so early on. Like at ALL! I had applied twice before and been denied. While it was a little discouraging, I knew that I was still SO new at this and I just needed to keep working hard at it. I mean, there are some HUGE bloggers that are part of this program. Like Katey McFarlan, Courtney Kerr, Brighton Keller, and Caitlin Covington just to name a few. These girls are AMAZING!
Back in March I received a message from a blogger that I follow (Amanda of The Styled Duo) and she was saying that she would like to refer me to the RewardStyle program. Ummm WHAT?!? I was IN SHOCK! This was the best news ever. Although getting a referral certainly does not guarantee acceptance, I was so flattered and humbled by the offer. Just to have someone look at my Instagram feed and blog that I put SO MUCH work into, and tell me that I should be in this program, made me so incredibly happy!!! Amanda has been SO helpful throughout this process, and I cannot thank her enough! Not to mention all the other bloggers that have helped in any way get me to this point, whether by a post about HOW to blog, or setting up my blog, or just other advice and information. I am so thankful for this community of women that support each other!
So, you can just imagine my shocked state when I received the acceptance letter from RewardStyle. Seriously so exciting!!! It was hard to explain my emotions and excitement over this accomplishment because most of my friends and family have no idea what this program even means. LOL… so, for those of you that aren’t on the Like To Know It train yet… I’m going to tell you why you need to be!
So, what is Like to Know it?
I’m sure most of you have been scrolling through Instagram and thought “OMG that shirt is adorable… where’s it from!?!” Yep… same here, all the time!
With the Like To Know It app, that problem is solved!
It’s a program you sign up for (it’s free!) that allows you to shop super easily from your Instagram and your email account. You just go to www.liketoknow.it and create an account!
What’s great about this is that as you are looking at your favorite bloggers/influencers instagram feeds, every time you like or screenshot a photo that is enabled with Like to Know It, all the outfit/makeup/home decor/WHATEVER they have linked will be sent directly to your inbox and your app. You will know if it’s enabled because you’ll see a things like this in the post:

Or you may see a little icon in the bottom right corner that looks like a hear with a little circle around it in black or white.
Here’s an example of one of my recent posts on Instagram that is enabled with Like To Know It:
Lookin' at the weekend like 😉😉😉 Today is my Friday and we have a 4 day weekend thanks to Good Friday and Monday being a bad weather day we didn't have to use 🙌🏼 Hallelujah! This time of year things at work get a little crazy so I'm so thankful for this little break 😊 Also, today my team and I are dressing up as characters from a book. You'll have to check out my insta stories to see it 😂 Shop my look and makeup using the @liketoknow.it app or by typing this link directly into your browser>>>> http://liketk.it/2r17I ((tap pic for details!)) Happy Thursday! #liketkit #ltkunder100 #ltkbeauty #theprettypriority #stylefile #styleaddict #teacherstyle
So, all you have to do is screen shot that photo (or just double tap it) and it all the details will instantly be sent to your email and the app. It is SO cool!
And here is what it looks like when it comes to your email:
My LTK links are also used on my actual blog page. I will typically link the photos, and also include an actual text link within the post to what I’m talking about. Soon, I will have a separate tab just for “Shop my Instagram” that will have all of that stuff there too!
I also want to tell you that using my links helps me out tremendously! I get a *small* percentage of any purchase made using my links. While making a little money on the side is great, it truly makes me so happy to see when other people actually purchase the things I’ve posted. It also helps me to provide what my readers want to see. I can analyze the clicks and purchases through my links, so I can see what YOU really loved and what you didn’t. I love the Like To Know It program because it’s beneficial for both the blogger AND the reader. My whole goal on The Pretty Priority is to help YOU! Using this program will truly make your life easier when you shop, trust me!
I also want to say, I am so thankful to those of you that follow my blog/instagram. Every single like, comment, message, and purchase you make through my page means SO MUCH to me. Seriously… thank you!!!
If you have any questions at all about the Like To Know It program, please shoot me an email over on the Contact page, or send me a DM on Instagram.
