Here’s How to Get Accepted to Like To Know It

If you’ve been seeing Like To Know It all over your Insta… you’re not alone. LTK has basically taken over the ‘gram and, honestly, I’m here for it. But, what really is LTK anyways?

Like To Know It is a free app and social shopping service that your Insta/blog viewers and readers can use to shop the products that their favorite bloggers (aka YOU!) love and wear. And Reward Style is the company behind this amazing technology. It’s such an incredible platform because it offers so. much. freedom. Honestly, I don’t think my blog would be where it is today without LTK. It’s a life-changer.


LTK is a bit complicated in the way that you can’t just “sign up.” While using LTK is free and easy for the consumer, it’s a bit more complicated for bloggers. Reward Style has a long process of applying and acceptance. But, as a blogger, you can make commission if someone buys something that you’ve linked in the app.

There are a few questions you should be asking yourself before applying to Reward Style: Are you posting outfits that people can currently shop? Are you consistent in posting to both instagram and your blog? Is your content high quality?

Reward Style looks for quite a bit before accepting bloggers. If you want to be accepted into LTK, do not focus on the number of followers you have. R. Style looks more at your content than your followers. If you’re producing high quality content with good feedback + engagement, chances are you’ll probably be accepted… BUT most people are not accepted on their first application.


I promise you, it’s not impossible to get accepted into LTK. I first heard about LTK from Abby at The Bleached Curl, though I definitely noticed all of the LTK hashtags on Instagram. After Abby so kindly explained how to apply to R. Style, I took my chances. 

At this point in my blog, I only had 700ish followers and 20 pageviews a day. I didn’t know what it took to be accepted and, honestly, I hadn’t done my research.

About a week later, I was notified that I was accepted. I literally screamed with excitement but I also realized I had no idea what I was getting into. So, I researched and, I do not say this to brag, but I found out I was one of the few bloggers to get into LTK without at least 1,000 followers or amazing content. So, that goes to show that you can get into R. Style without the numbers. Sure, I don’t have the highest follower count on LTK, but the program has helped my blog immensly.


You can apply on the R. Style website. It’s incredibly easy and straight-forward. The application simply asks about your blog, Instagram and demographics, nothing too challenging. Now, if I’m being fully transparant, a lot of people aren’t accepted the first time… or even the second. For many bloggers, it takes 3-4 applications to be accepted. But don’t let that get you down. 

If at first you’re not accepted, continue to create amazing content that is shoppable and high-quality. And apply a few months later. While there’s not a set time that you’ll hear back, you’ll eventually get an email on whether or not you were accepted into R. Style.

I hope this truly helps you with R. Style! If you have any other questions, be sure to shoot me an email and I’d love to help out.

Thanks so much for reading,
