It’s Raining Hashtags: The Best Tags To Use For Your Niche

Photo sharing websites are for more than just sharing pet photos, your latest party’s tablescape, or the land of the place you recently traveled to. Instagram can be a perfect place to begin to expand and promote your business.

Instagram captions are either going to be read or ignored. The power of your photo then lies within the hashtags. The more hashtags used, the more locations your photo will appear. And the better hashtags used, the more opportunity there is for success, views, likes, and profile clicks.

Luckily, no matter your business or niche, there are plenty of valuable tags to add to your next post.

A list of hashtag recommendations lies in front of you, along with how many times that hashtag has been used. Understanding the scale of popularity for hashtags can come in handy.

For some extra tips, insert a location to your post. Reach a particular audience by attaching a location in which the photo pertains to. For example, if you manage a cooking profile, add a location in which your homemade cuisine derives from.

Also, tag accounts that relate to your content. It is annoying to tag for spam, but tagging accounts in which you believe would benefit from your account is a worthy tactic. Tagging yourself is never a bad idea too. It is another opportunity for someone to see your name and click to your profile.

As you add these special tags to your posts, remember that Instagram only allows a maximum number of hashtags per post. Adding more than thirty tags will cause your Instagram caption to disappear, preventing your photo from shuffling through the platform. Always count before you share.
