#HEYBEAUTIES! I have been on LIKEtoKNOW.it (rewardStyle) for about a year now, and I wish I had a post like this to reference when I was a newbie.
When you're first approved, it's a mix of excitement and what the heck do I do now - it can be very overwhelming! My goal is to answer some of the top questions I've received from other bloggers.
DIDN'T FIND THE ANSWER TO A QUESTION YOU HAVE? Don't worry, shoot me an email or leave a comment below - I will help you!
Please leave comments on this post for other topics or apps you'd like for me to give you a breakdown on.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Q: HOW DO I POST MULTIPLE PHOTOS THROUGH THE LIKEtoKNOW.it APP?
So rewardStyle doesn't actually let you enable multiple photos at a time, but that doesn't mean you can't work around it. Select an image that you would like to be the cover of your Instagram Carousel post. Go through the usual steps of enabling it. When you open Instagram to upload said cover photo, make sure you click the 'Multiple Photo' Icon on the bottom right hand corner. It looks like two little squares layered on top of one another. Select the enabled cover photo first, and then proceed to add the other photos you want the post to embody.
Q: WHAT DO THE EMAILS MEAN?
This is a question that I myself didn't know until a few weeks ago - and it was driving me nuts. When you see the email symbol with a number next to it, it means that person will receive an email the next time you post. This is a good thing, because it means that the post you are looking at is going to help with conversions on future posts, as well as with future post's viewership.
Q: WHAT THE EASIEST WAY TO LINK PRODUCTS?
Link Ninja is by far the easiest way to link products. You can download it on your computer HERE or use it on your rewardStyle App.
Q: CAN YOU ERASE ITEMS OR FOLDERS?
Yes, you can erase entire folders that you create or simply remove items from said folders. I prefer to go into my folders after a season passes and clean them out so they don't get inundated with too many items that I am not likely to link again. I also tend to remove clothes that I have donated or given away.
Q: HOW AND WHEN DO YOU RECEIVE YOUR LIKETOKNOW.IT COMMISSION?
You can find how much commission you have on the rewardStyle App or at rewardStyle.com.
1) Look in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage and you will see Total Payment Due and Lifetime Commission. Click on either.
2) Open Earnings, houses Lifetime Open + Closed and Open Earnings. Lifetime Open + Closed will highlight just that, your total open and closed since you started with rewardStyle. Open Earnings will show you the amount of sales that are still in the 'open phase'. This means that the return end date at those retailers has yet to be reached.
You will also see Closed Earnings, which houses Payment Due and Lifetime Paid. Payment Due is paid every other Friday, but you have to have at least $100 due to be paid out. If you don't, you will have to wait until it accrues.
Be sure to link your PayPal account. You can do this by clicking on My Account and then selecting Basic Information. Make sure to click SAVE after entering the info.* They need a place to send the money, so do this first thing. Lifetime Paid shows you the total commission amount paid since you started with rewardStyle.
Q: I DON'T LIKE THE WAY THAT THE LIKETOKNOW.IT HASHTAG, HANDLE TAG AND HTML LOOK IN MY POSTS. IS IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP THEM?
So this is a two-fold answer, first-off, you need to have all three in order to publish them to your LIKEtoKNOW.it Page. It is what helps deem that post 'shoppable' - however, once re-sharing said post to other social channels, you do have wiggle room in what you want to keep or eliminate. Depending on how much copy I want my Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest captions to have, I will sometimes eliminate the LTK bundle. Most of the time I do keep it, as it helps with exposure, gives you a chance at a reshare on the @liketoknow.it Instagram Page (3.4 million followers), and pulls in people who are looking to shop social posts, thus helping your conversion rates and ultimately your commission.
Below is an example of what I will put at the footer of my captions to help seamlessly integrate the bundle, making it look a little less spammy, while still being informative for the viewers.
• 𝗧𝗢 𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗣 • these pumps and my other favorites
1️⃣ click on the link in my bio page
2️⃣ search for me, styleelyst, in the @liketoknow.it app

Q: HOW DO I FIND THE LINK TO MY LIKETOKNOW.IT PROFILE? I CAN'T FIND IT ON THE MOBILE APP, IS IT ON THE DESKTOP?
Yes, you can locate it on your desktop.
1) Go to the LIKEtoKNOW.it Homepage.
2) Login with your credentials.
3) Under Featured, click My Posts. This will then take you to your profile. Once there, copy the html in the browser - that's your LIKEtoKNOW.it Profile Link. For example, mine is https://www.liketoknow.it/styleelyst
Q: CAN YOU LINK AN ENTIRE WEBSITE WITH LIKETOKNOW.IT OR JUST PRODUCTS?
Yes, you absolutely can and it comes in handy, especially when doing blog posts on sales. You can link a home page or you can search for specific items and then link that landing page. For example, I can link Nordstrom's Homepage and I could also link Nordstrom // New Arrivals for Women or AG Jeans at Nordstrom.
All you have to do is go to that landing page and the click your Link Ninja Tool, just as you would do for a product. You can do this both on your desktop and on your LTK App.*
Q: IS THERE A WAY TO REMOVE AN ENABLED IMAGE AFTER POSTING IT?
1) Open your rewardStyle App.
2) Select the enabled image that you would like to remove.
3) Click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner.
4) Click Delete Post
Voila - that's it!
