The monthly roundup for the top items purchased in August is live! It’s been a minute since I shared which items were y’alls favorites and I love looking back to see what you guys loved the most! The number one sold items from my blog in August were the Walmart Flare Jeans. So happy to see y’all loved them as much as I did!
As a reminder, here is how I see all this information regarding data and what you are shopping the most:
I’m an affiliate influencer with rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any of my links (blog, swipe up, liketoknow.it app) 95% of them are affiliate links that are tracking to see if a purchase was made through your click. If someone makes a purchase, then I get a small percentage of the total price of the purchase. Same is true for most other bloggers and influencers you follow.
On the backend, I can only see what the driving item is that got you to the retailer. I cannot see what other items were purchased, nor can I see who made the purchase. For example, if you click on this link (Adidas Ultraboost 4.0) and you purchase this item plus three other items, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and the shoes is what got you from my website to the retailers website. I do get credit for everything that is purchased during this transaction. Similar to if you are shopping in a store and an associate helps you with one item but you buy five total, they get credit for all five.
I also use this information to understand what items you guys are liking and buying. If I am constantly linking to products that get hundreds of clicks each day, but no purchases are ever made, something is off. Is the price point too high? Is the retailer not trustworthy? I’m using this data to make sure that I am bringing the items you want to see each week! If I see that a cardigan from LOFT sold really well but is now sold out, I’m going to try to find a similar cardigan, buy it and style it so you have another option if you missed out on the first cardigan.
I also appreciate it so much when a purchase is made through my links. Giving credit where it’s due is important. I work incredibly hard to run Loverly Grey. There is a ton of work behind the scenes that goes on to simply share one Instagram post or one Blog post. I truly love the work that I do and know that it’s made possible when my followers click through and make purchases through my links. Although this might sometimes be an extra step for you, it costs you nothing but allows me to continue sharing sale alerts and styling tips with you!! Just know that I’m so thankful for you and appreciate when a sale is made via my link!
You can always shop my favorite retailers directly from my blog via the Shop > Retailers tab. I update this tab weekly with new sales and codes. It’s a great page to bookmark then start your online shopping from there!
Now onto the good stuff – The August Top Ten:
Thank you for stopping by and reading today’s blog post! Happy Tuesday!
