Now that we’ve covered what LTK is, let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into the fun part. Here’s how you can get started with LTK in just a few easy-to-follow steps:

Step 1: Apply to Become an LTK Creator

So what exactly are they looking for in an application? Glad you asked! Here’s what will make you stand out (and yes, this is straight from the mouth of LTK):

LTK Creator App

Step 2: Download the LTK Creator App

Let’s talk apps. There are two versions of the LTK app: one for creators and one for shoppers. You’ll need the LTK Creator App. It’s your go-to for making shoppable content and is designed just for influencers like you to manage posts and track earnings. It’s everything you need right at your fingertips.

Note: The LTK Creator app is only available on iOS devices, so you’ll need to download it on an iPhone. If you’re an Apple aficionado, you’ll love the seamless experience!

Step 3: Set Up Your Profile

Now that you’re officially a part of the creator community and have the app ready, it’s time to set up your profile. Think of this as your introduction – you want it to be memorable!

For LTK Creators (iOS Only):
  1. Log Into Creator Profile: Head over to creator.shopltk.com and log into your Creator profile. This is where it all begins!
  2. Set Up Your LTK Shop: Add a great bio, a profile image, and a header image that represents you and your brand.

Step 4: Create Your First Post

Here’s where the LTK Creator magic happens! This is your time to shine, stand out, and let your creativity flow.

Create a Post

First, create a post that captures attention. This could be a single chic photo that screams ‘look at me!’ or an eye-catching collage that showcases multiple products. Choose something that showcases your unique style, personality, and the brands you love.

Add Products

Now, tag those must-have products in your post. Maybe it’s those chic ankle boots that go with everything or that cozy sweater you never want to take off – make sure to include the things you absolutely swear by. Your genuine love for these products will shine through – and help drive sales.

Write a Descriptive Caption

Don’t forget to add a descriptive caption! Share why you love these products and how they fit into your life. Be genuine and engaging – your followers will appreciate the personal touch. Use keywords that resonate with your audience.

Pro tip: LTK offers preformatted or branded hashtags. Use a maximum of 3 preformatted hashtags and 5 organic hashtags. The organic hashtags should describe the product, so be as descriptive as possible.

This combination of gorgeous visuals, essential products, and captivating captions will create posts that aren’t just seen, but remembered and shopped.

Step 5: Share Your Posts Across Platforms

Why keep all that fabulousness to yourself? Share your LTK posts across all your social media channels to cast a wider net. Each platform has its quirks (looking at you, TikTok), so use them all to engage with your audience. If you want to master yet another platform, check out our guide on How to Use Pinterest Marketing For Your Business. Spoiler: It’s packed with tips!

Pro tip: Don’t forget to add your shop URL (shopltk.com/explore/LTKusername) to your social bios! This little addition can direct followers straight to your LTK shop, making it easier for them to find and buy the products you’re loving and recommending. So go ahead, sprinkle that URL everywhere!

Step 6: Growing Loyal Followers

Congrats! You just made your first post and we could not be happier! Posting is just the beginning. Keep that conversation flowing by interacting with your followers, answering their burning product questions, and thanking them when they click through your links. Building a community around your LTK content will not only boost your sales but also deepen your connection with your audience. Trust me, they’ll love you even more for it!
