Are you utilizing hashtags to their fullest potential? Why hashtags? You use them, your audience is looking at them. But you knew that...so the real reason? 1️. When you use a strong hashtag strategy, you increase your chance of being on your ideal client's explore page. Why? Because if they're liking 5 photos from accounts using a hashtag you're using, you will be more likely to pop up! 2️. As entrepreneurs in this digital space, we're told that our clients are looking at these hashtags when really, it's mostly just other entrepreneurs doing the same thing we are. I'm not saying that in a negative way, just to tell you that it's the perfect place to network! Follow your favorite hashtags so new posts are always in your feed.
You are allowed to use 30 hashtags per post.
Does that mean you have to use 30...typically I would recommend NOT.
Instagram is smarter than we think, it knows when you use the same 30 hashtags and knows you're not being authentic...just trying to gain followers.
So, always use relevant hashtags to your account, the picture, and your audience. Even if that means you only use 5 or so hashtags.
Did you know you can use up to 10 hashtags per IG story? You can! This increases your chances of landing on the Explore page! Happy Tagging, friends!
