How to Use Hashtags like a Boss

// Instagram is an amazing platform for influencers, marketers and businesses alike. But there's more to insta-famous that just posting cute pictures. Here's 3 simple tips to help you up your #hashtag game, and grow your following!

// ✔️ Use them all. You can use up to 30 tags on Instagram. It used to be that case that too many tags made you desperate, however the more the Instagram market gets crowded with influencers, the more important it is to get seen. It's easy to get lost in a sea of 1:1s if you're not intentional. Hashtags are one of the most important tools on Insta to help get eyeballs on your content. So if you can, use them all. Hot Tip: To keep your captions looking sleek, put your # in the first comment instead. 

// ✔️ Instagram does a neat little thing when you go to write a #, it shows your the number of posts that have used a specific tag. I suggest looking for relevant tags which have between 100k-200k posts. The more popular a tag feed is, the faster it will move, the result being that your post will be buried under hundreds of new posts in minutes. So choosing a tag with less posts means you have a much better chance of being seen.

// ✔️ Posting to Insta daily, or even multiple times a day can take time. A simple little trick is to save your best tags in notes on your phone, then quickly copy and paste. Simple and easy! I find this is great for those moments you find a killer new hashtag - I just add it to my notes and it's ready to use!
