Instagram - Hashtags Why And How To Use Them


We have all heard about using hashtags on your Instagram images, but why do I need to do them and how will having hashtags help your Instagram post and profile.


Why Use Hashtags - Hashtags are a great way of getting your content discovered, your image will become searchable to other Instagram users so it's important you choose relevant hashtag suitable to your niche and image. You can use up to 30 hashtags per post, but it's important to mix up your hashtags and keep them varied so they are not too spammy. Using hashtags will increase the views your image and profile get, it can also help build your followers. 


How to find relevant hashtags on Instagram - Head over to the discovery page on your Instagram in the search bar type in your relevant keywords, select the tags tab and click into the hashtag you would like to use, here you will find relevant hashtags related to that keyword.


 

Using hashtags will help will get your image found by others Instagrammers in the same niche or using the same keywords. Spend time searching not only the most popular hashtags but lesser-known hashtags that still relate to your images/niche.


Use A Hashtag Generator - There are many hashtags generators both online and in your phone app store, many like you to pay a monthly subscription, but if you look around you can get some free ones even if it is for a limited time (just save those hashtags in your notes for next time).
