I get asked a lot about my favorite social media platform (both personally and for BaubleBar), and the answer is always, always Instagram. Of course Pinterest is a close second, but I use Instagram several times a day… whether it is to share updates from my life, or to check in on my friends and favorite blogs… always on it. It’s safe to say that I’m completely addicted.
That said, my two biggest gripes with Instagram are 1) that it’s difficult to toggle between multiple accounts (I have a few… it’s so annoying how you have to log in and out!) and 2) that you can’t share links to purchase items. I get a lot of questions from you guys with where to buy things… and I often want to buy the things that friends, brands, and other bloggers post to their Instagrams… the fact that Instagram doesn’t allow links is so annoying!
Lucky for all of us, a new platform has emerged… LiketoKNOWit. You simply sign up here, plop in your email and synch it with your instagram (it literally takes two minutes) and it will send you emails featuring the products from images you like.
How to use it:
- Sign up! While logged into Instagram, go to liketoknow.it and sign in with your Instagram account. (All you have to do is plop in your email address.)
- Get Liking! Nothing new here, but you’ll notice a lot of bloggers/websites are starting to include a liketk.it link, #liketkit and @liketkit. This means that the blogger/publication has enabled the service, and shoppable items from items that you have liked will be sent to you in a nice little email (every hour, day, or week… based upon your preferences.)
- Check your email! Once you like a photo, the details will be sent to you via email. (But should you want instant gratification, you can always just click the liketk.it link in the Instagram… it will send you direct to a page where you can shop right away. So easy.
That’s all! Do you guys shop off of Instagram? Give LiketoKNOWit a try!
