How can I make the most of hashtags?

By June 12, 2019 July 9th, 2019 Stories

Daily hashtags can be a great source of inspiration for content to share on social media. If used correctly, they can encourage better reach and engagement across your posts on different social platforms.

They are slightly different to those hashtags that are trending. You can always predict and expect that the hashtag will be popular and in use, as long as you are using it on the correct day.

However, that doesn’t mean that you should use each one, every day of the week. Choosing the ones that reflect your brand message and activity is the key and might see you using 2 or 3 of the hashtags below, per week. It will also help you to have some consistency to your social media campaigns, planning in relevant content to go along with them each week. Your followers will then soon come to expect and look forward to these posts.

Have a look at some of the most common ones below and how you can use them. Let us know how you get on!
