Ways to Shop my Instagram
Hi ladies! Today is an informative post that I think you'll find helpful because I'm going to share all of the ways you can shop my Instagram! Let's jump right in.
Shop my Insta on my blog
Here on my blog, I have an entire shop page dedicated to my Instagram. When you visit my shop page, you will see a widget exactly like the one above. In my opinion, this is the easiest way to shop my photos from Insta. In my Instagram bio, I always have a link to my blog, whether it's the home page, my most recent blog post, or a current sale. All you have to do is click that link and it'll bring you here. Then, in the menu bar, click "shop," and then click "my Instagram" in the drop down. Bam. All of my Instagrams are there and ready to shop by clicking the desired photo! Easy peasy if you ask me.
Shop my Insta via LIKEtoKNOW.it
If you follow a lot of bloggers, then I'm sure you already know that LIKEtoKNOW.it launched their new app yesterday. If you didn't hear about this yet, no worries, keep reading for all the deets.
Previously, if you were signed up with LTK through email, you could like any photo on Instagram that had a LTK link in the caption (http://liketk.it/x) and within minutes you would receive a shoppable email that included the photo and each item linked.
With the LTK app, the same concept applies, except you can avoid all of the emails! (Thank goodness because emails can be SO annoying #amiright?) Now, when you download the LTK app and sign in with your Instagram account, each photo you like on Insta that is enable with the app will show up under the "my likes" tab in the app. Then you simply click the photo and shop away.
Another way to shop with the LTK app is by screenshotting any image enabled with the LTK app. You can screenshot an image on Instagram, Instagram stories, Pinterest, Facebook, and Snapchat. Once you screenshot the photo, it will show up under the "my likes" tab in the app. If you choose to, the app will also send you a push notification within seconds of screenshotting, letting you know that image is now available to shop in the app. I'm not one who keeps any notifications on when it comes to the apps on my phone - so if you're like me, high five. You can turn the push notifications off and the images you like & screenshot will still be available to shop in the app whenever you have the time to sit and scroll through.
Now, I mentioned above that images enabled with the app will show up under the "my likes" tab after a like or screenshot. So, how do you know if a photo is enabled with the app? Two ways. If the photo has a LTK link in the caption that looks similar to this: http://liketk.it/x then it is enabled with the app. OR if you see the LTK overlay in the bottom right corner of the image then it is enabled with the app.
At this time, there is no way to search the app to view a specific influencer's profile (hopefully they update this soon). In the meantime, you can view my individual profile on the app by clicking a photo of mine under the 'my likes' tab, and then clicking my name or profile image at the top of the screen.

As always, thanks for reading! Have a happy Tuesday!
