WTF is LiketoKnow.it?

I have a feeling you’ve all asked this question at some point. If you’re an avid Instagram user (i.e. an InstaAddict), you may have seen something called LiketoKnow.it pop up every once in a while in my posts or on other feeds you follow. I’ll admit, it took me a while to finally understand what exactly this was. Now that I do, it’s time for a little tutorial so you can take full advantage of this seriously awesome tool.

What is LiketoKnow.it?

It’s a service that allows you to shop products you see in your Instagram feed.

Why should I use it?

As you know, Instagram doesn’t allow clickable links in its posts or comments. So when you see a product or outfit you like, you can’t just click over to the product directly from the Instagram post. With LiketoKnow.it, instead of having to search for the product yourself or head to the blog post to find the link, you can literally just “like” the post as usual and get an email sent to you with all the info you need to shop or peruse the products.

How do I use it?

1. Register your email at LiketoKnow.it.

2. Like Instagram posts that mention LiketoKnow.it.

3. Automatically receive an email with ready-to-shop product links.

Other FAQs

Will it overload my inbox?

Nope! You can control how often LiketoKnow.it sends you emails. So if you don’t want one for every single post you “like”, you can receive your emails daily or weekly. You can even turn off the emails all together and just login to LiketoKnow.it to get info on the posts you’ve liked.

Do I need to follow people on LiketoKnow.it?

Nope! It automatically syncs to your Instagram and knows who you follow.

Do I need to click on the link that’s always in these Instagram posts?

Nope! That link is just a unique identifier so LiketoKnow.it knows which products to send you. You can literally ignore it.

How do bloggers benefit from it?

Bloggers (like myself) benefit from this service because when our readers buy products we recommend, we receive a commission. As a full-time blogger, I appreciate that I can get rewarded for my product recommendations. Don’t worry – I only suggest things I truly use and love!

So, what do you think? Do you have any other questions about it? Let me know!!
