Shop The Look
It’s no secret that every blogger loves the Like To Know It app. Actually, when you become a fashion blogger, you learn that Like To Know It is the IT platform for all bloggers. However, as a newer blogger or someone who has been blogging for a little bit, you might not understand why you should join or the benefits you can have from joining so I am going to lay it all out on the table today and talk about my experience with the app!
What Is Like To Know It?
For those of y’all that are new to the fashion blogger world, Like To Know It or Reward Style is an app that has tons of clothing brands on it that allows you to link products you own or love to your own feed for your friends and followers to shop. It sounds like it’s not a big deal but, if you are thinking about becoming a bigger blogger and wanting to start to make an income from blogging, this is a good first step! With the Like To Know It app, if you tag lets say, a top from Target and your followers love it and 1 person buys it, you will get a percentage from that person called commission! It can be awesome and it is a hub for where all your followers can shop your products.
How Do I Join Like To Know It?
Probably the most frustrating and difficult part about Like To Know It is that you cannot just sign up and join. To join you have to be approved by the Like To Know it team but don’t let that discourage you from applying and don’t let them turning you down once, discourage you either! If getting turned down discouraged me from blogging, I probably wouldn’t be blogging anymore! You have to try to succeed! I fortunately applied to Like To Know It when it wasn’t that huge yet and you really only needed 1,000 followers to get approved. However, I did get rejected the first time I applied. So from experience and what I have heard from people who are getting accepted to Like To Know It now of days are:
- Make sure you have good quality photos (maybe if you are serious about blogging, invest in a good quality camera)
- Make sure they know what your Niche is (whether it’s fashion, beauty, home decor, whatever, just make sure that it is clear what your page is all about)
- Have an aesthetically pleasing feed (this isn’t super important however it does matter and I always say, don’t post a picture just to post one. Make sure it is good and looks good)
- Have a member refer you (I actually did not know members could do this until I looked it up but it can help you get in! If you need a referral, DM me or comment below and I would be happy to help!)
These are just a few steps but, joining Like To Know It is usually your first step into becoming a more serious blogger so if that is what you want, change your mindset about your page to be more business like and put more time into your blog and social media accounts.
How Do I Use The App?
Once you have been excepted you need to download 2 apps: The Like To Know It app and the Reward Style App (Screen shots below of both). The First app, Reward Style, will be where you link everything, check your sales, and more. You followers cannot see your commission and other stuff you do on Reward Style app. This app will just be your hub when linking stuff. The Like To Know It app, the second one, is what your followers can download to shop your feed. It isn’t necessary to have the second app however, I like to have it so I can check to see what my followers can see since your feed looks a little different on the first app then the second.
The second thing I wanted to mention is that the best and EASIEST/ FASTEST way to link items is with the link ninja feature! I did not use the Like To Know It app for the longest time when I first got approved because typing in clothes to the search bar for some reason NEVER worked and was SOOOO frustrating! Link ninja is so dang easy and I am sooooo happy I figured out ow it works. Basically you look up whatever brand it takes you to their website and you can shop it like normal and then you press the ninja to link! So. Dang. Easy!! You will thank me later! I usually press add to folder which basically is a massive untitled folder that I have filled with all my links to anything I have collected through link ninja.
How Do You Get Paid?
I am so blessed and thankful to say that I just recently hit my first $100 on Reward Style because of all of you and it means the WHOLE WORLD to me! However, getting paid and understanding the commission process can be kind of tricky. I actually hit my first $100 on the app before the website. To my understanding, you have to track your commission on the RewardStyle website to get your commission. When I hit $100 on the app, I had only hit like $5 on the website. Not sure why it works like this but it does. I hit $200 on the app before the website so just to be clear, that is how it worked for me. I am not sure about others but if you’re confused if you’re numbers are off, that is why. To get paid, they do it like a normal job where they send out your money every other Friday via PayPal!
Anything Else I Should Know?
This app is amazing and like I said before, don’t let rejection turn you away from applying again. There are so many things you can do with being a member of the Like To Know It family including being able to add widgets to your website and special coding you can add to your website so that your followers who don’t want the app can still shop your Like To Know It feed from the comfort of your website! I am still learning daily about this app but my advice if you are new to it, just play around with it and get comfortable with it because it will become your best friend!!
