Now if you’re a blogger, it’s likely that you’ve heard of LIKEtoKNOW.it and RewardStyle! It was a little confusing to me at first on the distinction, but they’re actually the same platform! LIKEtoKNOW.it is the customer facing side and RewardStyle is the back end where you do all of the magic! I didn’t understand when I first started, but I caught on pretty quickly.
Rewardstyle is such a great option for bloggers who want to make money rounding up the items they love! I take it almost as a small personal styling fee. You find the items and basically curate them for your followers!
In this post I’ll explain a little bit more into what RewardStyle actually is and then show you what the various widgets do! I got accepted almost a year ago and it’s been great for me so far!
How to Use RewardStyle
Now to talk more about RewardStyle, that’s the way that you make the money! You earn a small commission from the product that each person purchases using your link. The way this works is through your browser “cookies.”
Some consumers don’t like shopping from influencer links for whatever reason, but in reality you’ll likely only be making $0.20-$1.50 per sale. Unless you have a following that can afford Gucci purses, this is the reality you have to get used to!
That being said, it’s honestly an amazing way to start making some side money! If you have a job already, creating ways to make passive income, like RewardStyle, can get you some extra $$$. You can also make cool additions to your blog through it as well!
Check out some of the features below:
Link Ninja Widget:
Link Ninja is the way you can link all of your items! This is honestly the most important widget for RewardStyle. The main reason being that it helps you create all of your other widgets!
You literally just drag the Link Ninja button to your favorites bar (on your desktop) to start. Then, whenever you get to a website where you’re linking something, click it! It’s really simple to do. I’ll show you how below:
They literally updated this about a week ago. It used to pop up in the center of the screen, but now I honestly like it more! You’re able to select the correct pricing, photo, and description now.
You can see above that it also says “get link” which is great if you want to link a word in a blog post!
It’s also awesome if you need to send a link to someone. Then you can still get your commission!
In order to get all of your other widgets to work, make sure to add the item to your “favorites” section. You can then create a board for whatever you want to add. You can see I have an ASOS tab for my ASOS Spring Style Guide! I demonstrated how to do this below.
The little plus sign is where you go to add these items. You can then just “check off” the box next to the tab and create a boutique from that! Boutiques are a really cool widget and you can see what they are in the next section.
I love the Boutique Widget because it shows almost a set of cards on your post! It’s so adorable and gives you a more chic look that you can add to posts. I especially love this widget when I’m doing a brand specific post.
I used this widget for my latest post on Creating a Cozy Home with Scotties! For this post, I used it to link all of my home items and the clothes that I was wearing. It was so cute and a great way to end my post!
The nice part about the Boutique Widget is that you can also customize the size and look to an extent. I always like to be honest with what I’m showing to my readers and so I generally make sure the price is visible with a hover over.
Shop the Post Widget:
Shop the Post Widget is one of my FAVORITE widgets because when people are reading your blog post they can actually see the garments! It’s an easy way to show them the items they love and you can customize the look and size of it.
I use this on almost every blog post I have! I adore adding it below my photos and then it’s easy for my readers to quickly shop whatever I’m wearing! Below is what they can look like in an actual post. This is an example from my Master Bedroom Tour!
From what I’ve seen, there isn’t a limit to how many items you can put in the Shop the Post Widget! You can have it be small, medium, or large. I always choose small because it 1) it takes up less space and 2) you can see a lot more items at once.
If you ever forget what items you’ve linked or want to go back and find links to them, you can always head over to the “Products” tab! There you can hover over it and see all of your favorites.
I sometimes forget what items I’ve linked or forget an item. Sometimes I link things in my blog posts in a different manner and it’s easiest to just grab links! If you’ve ever seen a blogger do this:
Then they likely just used the links that were grabbed from RewardStyle! I do this sometimes because I’m also a part of the Amazon Influencer Program. That just means I switch up my RewardStyle links and Amazon ones occasionally!
RewardStyle also has mobile capabilities! Once you’re accepted to the platform, this is how you can create and post images through social media platforms. I generally try to post at least five enabled images a week and I stay pretty consistent.
Enable a New Image
This is the middle section on the mobile app. It’s how you Enable a New Image for social media! You’ll have the option to share to multiple platforms once you enable it. It’ll then show all of the previous photos you uploaded to the app in this area.
The Earnings section shows just that! Your earnings! It’ll show how many sales you have had in a week and will populate all the items that people clicked on where a sale happened.
Now PLEASE NOTE: just because someone clicked on the item that appears does NOT mean they purchased that exact item. For example, if they clicked on a $1000 Gucci purse, but only bought a $20 pair of heels, your commission will be based off of the heels and not the bag.
There isn’t much to say about the Favorites section, but I felt I should explain all sections of the app! This area keeps all of your folder tabs as well as your favorites section! You can get links from clicking on items here too.
You can see I search A LOT of different items. This area is so helpful when I’m out and trying to quickly link items! When I’m at work on my lunch break or at the mall, this is the perfect way to link items quickly.
I hope this post helped you learn how to start monetizing your influence through RewardStyle! This is a great app and system to use in order to generate passive income for yourself. This IS a form of affiliate income too! Make sure to use disclosures.
This post is full of all the tips I needed when I first started blogging and using RewardStyle! I learned all of these tips myself through trial and error, RewardStyle tutorials, and Pinterest! I’ve tried to combine as much of that knowledge as I could.
