ONE: STOP USING GIGANTIC HASHTAGS AND LANDING IN THE INSTAGRAM BLACK HOLE.
I wrote an in-depth post about this here but the basis of this is, just because an Instagram hashtags has a lot of uses, it does not mean you are going to get more exposure. You want to make sure you are using more niched down hashtags that your ideal client is actually looking at on the regular and ones that are much smaller so that you do not get caught up in the black hole of Instagram!
TWO: SWITCH UP YOUR HASHTAGS, OFTEN.
Did you know that you should be switching up at least 50% of your hashtags every single time that you post? Yep! That means if you are allowed 30 hashtags per post, which you are, you should be using 15 new ones per post. If you post one time per day, in one month you should be using 450 new hashtags each month at the minimum. Hashtags are one of the greatest organic opportunities for growth but most people don’t put the time and effort into searching for new ones! That is why I created a list of 4,000+ hashtags that are niched and GUARANTEED for growth each and every month, here!!
