Best Hashtags To Boost Your Instagram Likes And Followers

HASHTAGPOSTS.jpg

After building my brand and helping others build there's, I've accumulated a lot of hashtags in my notes. When it comes to instagram, I have no shame in adding a ton of hashatags to my post. Ok not a ton because Insta has now limited the amount to 30 hashtags per post.  Anyway, using hashtags is one of the best ways to reach people and boost your following.

I keep hashtags pertaining to different categories in the notes app of my phone. This helps me add them quickly to whatever image I decide to post. Each time I post with hashtags my interaction with others is way better than a post with little to no hashtags at all.

P.S. Random hashtags do not work, you know like hashtags you make up in your head... stop it.

So, what works? In my experience, using popular hashtags within your niche works. For instance, when someone is searching for home decor, more than likely they will search for #homedecor. Hashtags are what people use to search for stuff or to add their image to a curation of similar images. So if you've recently added a post with the hashtag #homedecor your image will pop up along with other similar pics when that hashtag is searched for by others.

Brands and stores also utilize hashtags, especially top brands like Target, Sephora, or Kate Spade. It helps them to find your post containing their products. If it's a great pic, they just might decide to repost your image, which is more engagement for you. Do you know there are a lot of bloggers who are now representatives for these stores, doing commercials and advertising, like Jessamyn (@mynameisjessamyn) . She was found on IG, and now you see her on Kotex commercials!! So, permission to hashtag away! A helpful tip is to look at similar POPULAR feeds of yours and others who do what you do. See what hashtags they use and use them too.

Below are my favorite top hashtags to use...

Know of any other popular hashtag I can add to this list, let me know. Another helpful tip is to look up a popular hashtag in the search bar of your instagram. At the top other similar and popular hashtags will appear as well, so keep those in mind for use too.
