Yip, the uncharted Instagram hashtag can be #SCARY!
But once you have a little know how you can change this little sucker into your best friend! Here are a few tips (there are PLENTY MORE) just to get you started:
Make sure you have between 11-30 Hashtags:
Less than that is ineffective, and Instagram will limit you to a maximum of 30.
Research your Hashtags:
Decide if that hashtag page works with your brand?
Don’t choose hashtags that have so many posts that your post will be at the op for a few seconds
Don’t use a Hashtag with so few posts that no one will be searching that Hashtag.
Research your competitors’ hashtags, get some ideas from them.
Include Hashtags that are:
Specific to that post
Representative of your overall profile.
Hide your hashtags:
It makes your message easier to grasp and more appealing to read.
And don’t put Hashtags in your message:
It is #annoying to #read a #sentence with loads of #hashtags all the way #through.
(This a Twitter hashtag habit due to the restriction on characters)
So get hashtagging and make these little guys work for you!
