If you haven't used ShopStyle Collective before here is a brief tutorial on what it is and how to use it!
What is ShopStyle Collective?
ShopStyle Collective is an app that enables you to shop influencer images from Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and the web.
Why Should I Use It?
Sometimes you see something on Instagram or Pinterest that you HAVE to have! This makes it easy. If you see a ShopStyle Collective enabled image on social media, you don't have to go hunting for the products yourself or visit the blog to find the shoppable post. All you have to do is download the ShopStyle Collective app in the app store (available free for iPhone and Android) and screenshot or "like" the image whose product details you want. When you screenshot or like the photo, you then open the ShopStyle Collective app on your phone and voila! The image is there with ready-to-shop product links. You can also opt in the receive shoppable emails if that's more your style. Now you can follow people in the ShopStyle Collective app too, so you can always find your favorite bloggers and their beautiful closets with ready-to-shop links.
Do I Need to Click on the Link in the Instagram or Pinterest Post?
Nope! That is just another way to find the post - you can type that into your browser instead if you want to be taken directly to that post on the web.
How Do Bloggers Benefit From This?
Bloggers (like me) benefit from this service because when our readers buy products we recommend, we receive a small commission. I appreciate that I can get rewarded for recommendations I make because I hope to make blogging my full-time career someday. I make recommendations based on what I love and use from brands I trust!
