LIKEtoKNOW.it He(Art) Wall that #StartedWithAScreenshot
Shop this look
Over the last year, liketoknow.it has driven $1 billion dollars in sales for retail and brand partners from influencers. Which means they are doing something right! And quite honestly it took me some time to realize what exactly Liketoknow.it purpose was. Whoops, sorry guys! A couple years back I would see it popping up on Instagram. Eventually, I did some digging to come to the realization that it what a game changer and how it could benefit myself as a consumer and as a blogger.
Here is the skinny:
In short, Liketoknow.it allows you to shop products you see in your Instagram feed. After I take a picture of an outfit, I'll then upload it to LIKEtoKNOW.it and “tag” it with the products in the photo, as well a link to buy it from one of the 4,000 retailers that partner with liketoknow.it. Then, after seeing something you like, you have access to these links and can purchase the items featured in your favorite photos. The retailer makes a sale, rewardStyle and myself get a cut of the profits, and you get access to items they may otherwise not have known about. So every time you “like” an influencer’s photo on Instagram you’ll receive an email with the shoppable link to purchase the item. It’s a pretty innovative way to shop if you ask me. I want to see the clothes on women in their day to day, strutting around the street, enjoying their morning cup of joe. I want to see how the products move in real life.
Beyond liking photos, you can now screenshot photos you want to shop from Instagram, Snapchat or now, even, Pinterest. Immediately after taking a screenshot you’ll open the app (you can download via app store) it will analyze it (it connects to your screenshot album in Photos) and send you a push notification if it can match the image with one of the millions of influencer-submitted and tagged photos in its database. Since their March launch, more than 5 million screenshots of influencer created images have been matched and made instantly ready to shop via the Liketoknow.it app. 5 Million!
Here is what you need to do:
1. Download the app & register for your account.
2. Like or screenshot Instagram posts that mention LiketoKnow.it.
3. Automatically receive an email or pop open the app with ready-to-shop product links.
This week @likeknowit.it visited San Francisco for their fifth installment of the traveling event series, #rSCityTours! rewardStyle City Tours. It’s a is a three-day “city takeover” which is making appearances in nine major cities across the globe. In each city they stop at along the way, they invite influencers to come network and experience personalized strategy sessions and the first look at each new LIKEtoKNOW.it He(Art) Wall. I had the pleasure of meeting up with the super knowledgeable and adorable Marie Jansen - she's an expert on all things Liketoknow.it and how I as an influencer can drive more engagement. As for this mural, the @liketoknow.it team partnered with The Mural Co. to bring the He(Art) Wall to the scenic Pacific Heights neighborhood beside Palmers off of Fillmore & Clay. I strolled up the street lined with my favorite high-end shopping, historic Victorian styled homes and mom and pop shops to ooh and aah at the new icon wall in town, and made sure to snap photos with the LIKEtoKNOW.it He(Art) Wall that #StartedWithAScreenshot. I've rounded up my favorite current trends & styles I'm geeking over down below.
