Recently I heard some chatter in the Internet world that using Hashtags is a “dead strategy”.
Well since I am the Hashtag Queen, and part of my job is maintaining my hashtag library that is filled with thousands of hashtags to help boss ladies connect with their ideal clients online, I thought I should chat really quick about this rumor!
First of all, this is a rumor! Hashtags are still alive and well and still remain a huge part of Organic growth on Instagram. And since they are still alive and well, I thought I’d give you a few tips on how to use them to increase your Instagram reach!
By the way, I would love to connect with you on Instagram! Come and say hi!!
- Use all 30, every single time!
As a seasoned Instagrammer, I like to call hashtags the prime real estate of your posts. You are only allowed to use 30 hashtags on each post that you make so you should always use them all. Each hashtag you don’t use is a missed opportunity for a valuable connection and possible sale!
- It doesn’t matter where you use them!
Another BS rumor I recently read was that if you don’t put your 30 precious hashtags in the Instagram caption, they “won’t work”. This is so far from the truth as my clients and me to this day always use the first comment for our hashtags and we still continue to connect with our ideal clients and customers every single day! It is purely preference; you can post them in your caption or your first comment.
