Instagram Update: What Is LIKEtoKNOW:IT?

Instagram LIKEtoKNOW:IT Outfits Shopping Uncategorized

If you’re following us on Instagram, then you probably noticed that we started to mention something called “LIKEtoKNOW:IT” in our posts lately. You’re probably wondering what it is and why we’re posting a link in Instagram, because you can’t even click links in Instagram (rude)! Well, LIKEtoKNOW:IT is actually a really cool Instagram plug-in that allows you to shop the items, or similar items, that we feature in our posts straight from your email inbox. Let me show you what we mean…

One of the most common questions asked on Instagram is, “Where did you get that?” Rather than just tell you “Nordstrom,” and leave you to begin an endless search to find that exact item on the entire Nordstrom website, you can use the LIKEtoKNOW:IT feature to have that exact item link sent to you via email on an instant, daily or weekly basis (your choice!). Also, sometimes the items we wear aren’t available anymore, but we have found you some similar options to shop from. This is how we can easily send you those suggestions as well. And, at any time, you can visit the “Instagram Outfits” tab on our blog at any time to shop all of our past posts from our personal LIKEtoKNOW:IT site.

Here’s an example of a recent post that included LIKEtoKNOW:IT and the email that you would recieve if you were a registered LIKEtoKNOW:IT user and had Liked this photo on Instagram. As you can see, we’ve included some of the exact items we are wearing, which you can directly click through to shop, along with some similar items that we suggest as good alternatives to any of the pieces that are no longer available. Below, is another example of an outfit you could Like on Instagram and then shop from your inbox…

So, now that you know why we’ve been posting these crazy combinations of letters and numbers and un-clickable links on our Instagram posts, there’s only a few things left for you to do to get started using this amazing feature:

1. Register on the www.LIKEtoKNOW.IT website

2. Like Instagrams that include the www.liketk.it/xyz links

3. Receive ready-to-shop product links in your inbox

If you aren’t interested in this feature, don’t worry, just keep on following @TheFashionablyBroke and Liking our posts, as you won’t receive any extra emails if you haven’t signed up. And, as always, thanks for following along and we hope you have a great weekend!
