rewardStyle, the industry’s dominant monetization platform for influencers and parent company of the popular LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app, announces today a strategic rebrand to LTK. The company is unifying its two brands for consistency and simplicity and will now operate its entire platform under one brand name.
A pioneer of creator commerce, LTK created the technology that influencers use to drive commerce across all of their distribution points on the web. Today, influencers use LTK’s proprietary technology platform to create, manage and grow their own ecommerce shops.
To date, global brands have invested more than $1 billion in creator content through LTK campaigns, collaborations and commissions-on-sales. In addition to releasing significant enhancements to its LTK shopping app, the company is rolling out a new self-service portal that gives brands of all sizes and budgets access to LTK’s more than 100,000 influencers and enables them to build, manage and scale their influencer marketing plans first-hand, across all publishing platforms, including the LTK shopping app.
“As a B2B2C platform that uniquely serves all sides of the creator commerce experience, it was important that we unify our business under a singular brand to further expand our clients’ opportunities,” said Amber Venz Box, co-founder and president of LTK. “We’ve spent the last six months investing in world-class talent, adding more than 100 new employees in 2021 alone. Our focus now is on innovation and speed. We’re developing new technology and features that propel our clients, and we are scaling the most dynamic and efficient online shopping experience powered by influencers.”
The company rebrand will take effect immediately and roll out to international markets, including the UK, Germany, France, Australia, China, South Korea, and Brazil imminently, where LTK services and the app will be localized for regional brands and influencers later this year.
LTK is a one-stop destination that puts creators in business. More than 100,000 fashion, beauty, fitness, home and lifestyle influencers use LTK to monetize their content across the entire social ecosystem, and to manage their bespoke storefront - their LTK Shop.
