7 ways to use hashtags effectively

Hashtags have been confusing folks since 2007. 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣
⁣
So, let's talk through it. ⁣I'm about to drop a few mad pointers.
⁣
7️⃣ ways use hashtags effectively: ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✏️ Stick with hashtags in the range of 2k-800k uses.⁣⁣⁣ Anything more than that is oversaturated, meaning your post will get lost in the shuffle.⁣
⁣⁣⁣
✏️ Make sure the hashtags you use match the theme of your post and photo.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
✏️ Never use more than 30 hashtags in a post, 10 in a story. Believe it or not, there is a limit.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
✏️ While Instagram hashtags are not character-count-limited, it’s best practice to keep them brief. Short hashtags are more likely to be searched for and shared.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
✏️ Once you have your hashtag lists, save them in your notes app, google drive, or platforms like @planoly or @previewapp that have built-in hashtag capability. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣
✏️ Hashtags in the caption of your post vs. your first comment generate 18% more engagement.⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Annnnd....last but not least: remember social is social. ⁣
⁣
✏️ Don't just use hashtags, invest in them by engaging with hashtags daily. Click on one you follow or use and actively comment and like 10 posts you find appealing. ⁣
